Hi everybody! I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and New Year. How did you celebrate? I enjoyed a very special time with family and friends and now feel full of excitement for the year ahead.
Have you made any New Year's resolutions for 2012? If you have read the blog recently, you'll know that 2012 should introduce one big change to my life, as (all going well), I become a mum in a matter of weeks. This year will likely be very different from previous years, but even with a baby in tow, I have one, recurring New Year's resolution that I hope to achieve: to see more of London. Despite calling this exciting city home for several years, I love the fact that there's always somewhere new to discover, whether that's becoming acquainted with a lesser-known area, finding a new wine bar or stumbling upon a beautiful street. So, when Time Out London asked me to share 5 of my secret London spots, I jumped at the chance. Not only did it give me the opportunity to celebrate London as a city rich in these wonderfully diverse, often overlooked 'pockets', I longed to discover the secret spots chosen by others. Having worked at British Vogue on the Vogue Secret Address Book, I know what a challenging (albeit rewarding) task it is, to unveil 'secret' places in our capital, but hopefully you will encounter one or two in my Time Out picks. I would also love to hear about your secret London spots - which would you choose?
Here's a link to my 5 secret London spots for Time Out, or you can browse them here:
