This is my food, travel, and lifestyle blog.

Newly married, living in a new city (London, UK), and taking on a brand new chapter in life, this blog is my record book for things that I am learning and discovering along the way.

If you find yourself on the same chapter of your life, you might find something useful here.

 Scroll down and enjoy!
