• Alexandra Palace History tour

    August 5th 2014 katie

    A couple of weeks ago now, we went up to Alexandra Palace to take a history tour, which we quickly booked up after joining the email notification list. Perched atop a big hill overlooking North London, it’s not far from us though quite a shlep on a couple of twisty bus routes to get there.…

  • Getting some Headspace

    July 17th 2014 katie

    I’ve been using the Headspace app for the last week or so, and thought it deserved a bit of a write up as I’m really loving it. Have you seen it? – it’s a charming and simple app to get you into the practice of daily mindfulness meditation. As a freelancer and working for myself,…

  • Wedding Dresses at the V&A

    May 5th 2014 katie

    I was treated to a preview of the V&A’s new Wedding Dresses 1775-2014 exhibition last week. It opened to everyone at the weekend, so here’s a peek at some of my favourite things on show. The ground floor charts dresses from the 18th century up to the mid-20th century. You can clearly see the styles…

  • Boro at Somerset House

    April 12th 2014 katie

    Yesterday, a beautiful sunny spring day, Michelle and I went down to Somerset House to check out the Boro exhibition. To quote the website: Translated to ‘rags’ in English, boro is the collective name for items – usually clothing and bed covers – made by the poor, rural population of Japan who could not afford…

  • 2013 in pictures

    December 31st 2013 katie

    I almost didn’t do my usual photo round-up this year (hence the last-minuteness!) because in a lot of ways this has been a very hard, unhappy year. We’ve had all sorts of upheaval from Yoni getting sick to family illness, relationship breakdowns and deaths. But looking back through my year of photos was actually a…

  • V&A Friday Lates

    December 4th 2013 katie

    Josh and I made the trip to West London on Friday to check out the V&A Friday Lates. They open the museum extra late and put on installations, talks, exhibitions and interactive sessions to complement the shows that are going on in the museum. Last Friday’s theme was “Adornment’ to coincide with the current Pearls…

  • London Transport Museum Depot

    November 4th 2013 katie

    Not much will drag me out to West London, but one that definitely will is the promise of transport nerdery. This Saturday (after spending the morning viewing the Cheapside Hoard with Kathryn – phew, culture all over) we trundled way over to Acton Town to visit the London Transport Museum Depot‘s open day. Emerging from…

  • New York Transit Museum, Brooklyn

    October 31st 2013 katie

    Pretty late in posting about this – took so many photos there that it was a bit of a task editing them! We visited the New York Transit Museum on our last day in town, a roasting hot day where we took the ferry down to Brooklyn Bridge, walked some of the riverside promenade (sadly…

  • Brooklyn on film

    October 25th 2013 katie

    I got back the photos I took on my film cameras in Brooklyn: some from my OM-10 and some from my Lomo Diana. For once nothing jammed or went wrong, so I got lots of good ones. I really like how they get across just how sunny our time there was.

  • Around Brooklyn

    October 5th 2013 katie

    We just got back from an awesome week in Brooklyn. It was basically the antithesis to our last holiday to Barbados: concrete instead of beaches, cocktails and beer instead of rum punch, brunches and Mexican and Chinese food, walking until my feet quite literally gave out… We stayed in yet another great Airbnb rental, a…

  • Some iOS7 wallpapers

    I made myself a few calm, colourful and simple iPhone wallpapers to complement the new iOS7 (which I LOVE), so thought I’d share them here too. Just click the 4 or 5 link below each one to get the right size for your phone and save to your camera roll. Enjoy! Anyone else loving iOS7?…

    September 20th 2013 katie

    Lomography got in touch to offer me a review product, which I could then give away to one of you lovely readers. Rather than pick a camera I was rather more intrigued by their Smartphone Film Scanner… This nifty gadget lets you scan 35mm films directly into your phone just using the phone’s camera, so…
