The September Issue of Bored

September Issues- Lots of Issues

The time has come for us to gather in judgement of the September Issue covers. Content? Nah. Who has the time to trawl through 600 pages of ads? I haven’t really read a magazine cover to cover since the inaugural Porter with Gisele Bundchen. I still haven’t made it through that Gaga September Issue cover… no word […]

Brunch- the blues

Brunch- Blues In The Summer

Another summer gone way too soon, though we’ve hardly had any of her. July was supposed to be scorching but none of that, August, the traditionally warmest month, has been okay but nothing like it was in the past. Summer? Rather its been summer-ish and a bloody tease which has me singing the blues in a […]

I Am My Hair

From the age of five to about thirteen, just before I left for boarding school, every Saturday or Sunday, mostly Sunday because I am the last minute child, I would go to the market with my sisters to get my hair done for school the coming week. Braided or threaded, it was a weekly ritual, and most […]

Always and forever, Florence will have my heart. I could go back there everyday and still never have enough of it. The people. Their passion. The food. The ambience. Even the tourists, nothing ever makes Florence less that what it is- BEAUTIFUL. EAT In Florence you can eat anywhere and everywhere there is no shortage of […]

Florence- Love At First Sight. Always…

Perhaps the first thing you notice about Florence is her astounding beauty and romance, a city surrounded by evidence of times past, a presence of beauty, and an endless charm for the future. Even with the tourists swarming at peak season nothing takes away from her beauty. It feels like you are in a cocoon, trapped in a […]

Beyonce formation

Formation- Beyoncé

“I did not come to play with you hoes. I came to slay bitch.” When I die I want this on my tombstone. It is 2:30am in London and I find myself going through a very dejá vu moment. It seems Beyonce has a connection to my sleep time because every time I try to go to […]

Pancakes For Lunch- Bad Aunty

Baby sitting weekend is my favourite with my cheeky two year old nephew who talks back, claps back and asks why. A LOT. I love it. It is also my chance to be the cool fun aunt that flaunts the rules before giving him back to his parents. We keep it secret until of course […]

The British Summer

Nothing, NOTHING, is more perfect than the British summer, when she does decide to show up. For two weeks of what should be a twelve week season we get the perfect summer weather; sun shining, sky as blue as the ocean on the coast of Italy, trees green, full of life and blossoming with flowers, […]
