While Newcastle may not be known for its food, with this one restaurant, it should be. The last thing I imagined when I came to the county of pies and Newcastle brown beer was that there could be really great food here, including seafood. Unfortunately, England is largely divided when it comes to really good food, with Michelin-starred restaurants like Five Fields mostly based in London. Luckily, with higher rents in the capital, many great restaurants and amazing chefs are taking their business out to the other parts of England.
After what felt like months of planning, boxing and moving, I have managed to remove all of my little boxes and my whole shoe collection from the modern flat in Warsaw to a charming Victorian semi detached house only a train ride from my city of dreams- London. I even have a couple of glazed … Continue reading First Collection by Sophia Webster in London
When it comes to trips, I am usually less than spontaneous... and then I found myself booking myself a teaspoon trip, as part of a medicating journey- to Brighton. Having been there during the cold times, it was pleasant to not have a gale serenading in my face. On this trip though, I really truly discovered … Continue reading Brighton Day Trip

Since the incredibly haunting (and slightly nightmarish) Swan Lake, I have in a sense been obsessed with the feathered white … Continue reading Kingston Day Trip
Now, while most people have their tourist days behind them (yes, those trips when you were like twelve and focused primarily on the available gift shops rather than the sights themselves), I do not. So this was going to also be my first time seeing the London Aquarium. Since childhood, I have been a firm … Continue reading London Day Trip: Aquarium
Rolling through these rainy London days (yes, I am currently residing in London for my summer holiday) is one of the most enjoyable ways of spending an afternoon. Especially while doing so in the Egyptian, studded rooms of Harrods. Nothing out of the ordinary, for sure... For me, Harrods is a clash of cultures- a … Continue reading London Day Trip: Morelli’s in Harrods
Brrrr. Morning flight. Who knows that getting the bags in -10 would be so daunting! While patiently waiting for the driver to park in front of the airport, the possibilities for what to do during the flight were endless. Note for the future- never, ever eat frozen sushi at the Warsaw airport. Even bringing Vogue … Continue reading Weekend Trip: London
