RECOMMENDATION | The Stratford Brasserie, Stratford – East London

Thursday night a couple of weeks ago and my Dad was in town. My step-mum had gone to an ABBA event at the O2 and he didn’t really fancy getting all dressed up like a Super Trooper, so we decided to go out for a bite to eat. I’d been to The Stratford once before when it first opened in the summer and was impressed with their Stratford burger, so thought it was worth having another look.

StrongHER Warrior in Whitechapel – Woman’s Weight Lifting East London

I signed up to become a StrongHER ‘Warrior’ for four weeks. After the second week I signed up for anther four. It’s likely that I’ll be a Warrior for life. I’ve lifted weights for a couple of years and whilst I kind of knew that my form was okay, I wanted this to be confirmed by an actual real life person that wouldn’t judge me or intimidate me.

I’m Supporting Second Hand September

This September, it seems Oxfam are trying to make ‘second hand’ on trend. Ironically in the same month as London Fashion Week, they are asking people to say no to new clothes for 30 days and shop second hand, taking the pledge for Second Hand September. On their website, they state that every week, 11 million items of clothing end up in landfill. Throwaway fashion is putting increasing pressure on our planet and its people - it’s unsustainable. It’s also ridiculously shocking.

RECOMMENDATION | Roof East Stratford – Shouting “Summer!” From The Rooftops

Summer, before I moved to London, would have been about BBQ’s and beer gardens. But almost five years after moving ‘darn sarf’ (imagine my worst cockney accent here) I see sunshine and think: ‘rooftop bar’. Turns out so does half the population in London. It’s fair to say I’ve frequented quite a few. In The City, if you get there at the right time, you can watch the sunset over St Paul’s at Maddison’s, or at The Avery in Finsbury Square, you can get great cityscape views whilst sipping on a chilled glass of Sauvignon and eating Padrón peppers (my fave).
