I've moved on...
...to a different domain. Why, what were you thinking? The truth is, I just woke up one day and decided it's time for a change—a metamorphosis, if you will; or, in layman's terms, if Britney can shave her head, then maybe so can I? Nevertheless, it's been a rather handsome 10 years of talking to you, and thank you for putting up with all my moodswings and terrible dad jokes. Fear not! The hormonal imbalance and jokes are more terrible on CUBICLE, see you there.


Shoes – Adidas Energy Boost



A Skinny Latte at monmouth Coffee
27 Monmouth Street, WC2H 9EU

Coffee-connoisseurs the world around swear by Monmouth coffee – witness how proper lattes are done and don’t forget to take home your own bag of coffee beans to sniff when sad.

Trench coat – Burberry. Bag – Saint Laurent ‘Lulu’. Top – ASOS. Jeans – 7 For All Mankind. Shoes – Adidas Energy Boost



oysters at
the delaunay
55 Aldwych, WC2B 4BB

Sure, they’re known for wieners. Lots of different type of wieners. In fact, go for wieners, but the mittel European vibe at the Delaunay is not complete without oysters on ice to start.


Burgers at Shake Shack
24, Market Building, The Piazza, WC2E 8RD
Dress – StyleNanda. Denim Jacket – Pinko (Similar). Bracelet – Monica Vinader. Shoes – Adidas Energy Boost


Your search for the best burger is over. The cheeseburger topped with Niman Ranch all-natural applewood smoked bacon, chopped cherry pepper and ShackSauce goes famously with a side of crinkle-cut fries and a pint of Oreo shake is match made in heaven. And, as one Sheldon Cooper would say, the burgers come with a satisfying meat-to-bun-to-condiment ratio. (Avoid peak hours unless queuing is a hobby)



Burberry’s first stand-alone beauty store, with looks straight off the catwalk. Try the radio-frequency identification-enabled platform that matches your skin tone to a colour, preeeetty fascinating.




go for a run on victoria embankment
victoria embankment, WC2R

One of the best running routes the city has to offer, the riverside embankment. Opt for an early morning jog when the streets are bare from tourists. Up one bank and back the other, follow signage, or not. I usually follow the smell of breakfast. Beats views from any gym treadmill.

  1. My main thought for this entire post: “damn if this layout isn’t completely gorgeous”. Perfect!

  2. I’m definitely a nike’s fan, but this has got me thinking!

    And I’m so curious to try a burger from Shake Shack!

  3. Sarah

    Your trench outfit is pretty much perfection. And these Adidas are pretty badidas i.e. badass. And shake shack ftw!

  4. Wonderful post!

    I actually live in Covent Garden, so it is nice to see what you like in this area! I would say that New Row Coffee is my favourite place for a coffee: they even do coffees with homemade almond milk! I love the Delaunay too; such a classy place!

    And of course going for a long run along the Thames with a loop or two in St James park is one of the other advantages of living here.

    Another two places I would recommend are Coco de Mer and Champagne + Fromage.


  5. You basically made eating out at Shake Shack & running (??!) look glamorous as hell. I look like total crap when I run.

    Who am I kidding? I don’t run. Still, this post was pretty damn awesome. Definitely craving food & coffee now.

  6. Hello! I just want to tell you how much I enjoyed this post. The photography is beautiful as it the layout and the styling. It is so good to see such a wonderful blog. Keep doing the amazing job that you are doing.

  7. the layout of this post is as fascinating as your daily style picks- absolutely gorgeous.

  8. Wow, amazing blog format! How long have you ever been running a blog for?
    you make blogging glance easy. The entire look of your site is great, let alone the content!

  9. Shini you rock girl! :)

    Love everything about this post!

  10. It was an old friend who I hadn’t seen for a while,
    and I could just tell that something was wrong. Try breaking out of your comfort zone and join an activity( walking group, running, badminton, mountain biking,etc.

    When this day doesn’t deserve Bengals tickets, I don’t understand what does.

    First thought: “Woah there, hot mama…”Looking too good for just a run. Gotta fan myself.
    BEAUTIFUL photos, as always! Pretty curious about the Burberry Beauty Box color-matching bit and how it works. I have tan skin and I’ve always been on the hunt for a nice nude or blush color for the lips (since forever, ughh). Unless you’re referring to a perfect match for foundation? Gotta bookmark this post even though I won’t be taking a trip out of the US anytime soon. Would looove to visit London… When you have blogger sales I’m just crying at home.

  12. Wow, this is a great collaboration! Saving it :D

  13. Wow…your blog is so perfect in terms of content and photography..

  14. What a lovely post, I love Covent Garden so much!

    Love, Rachel

  31. so I just moved to London and I’m more than slightly lost… and these might be the next set of places to visit. Although I just came from NYC, so a visit to Shake Shack might make me a bit homesick? haha x

  32. Your layouts have always been great, but wow this one is just beautiful! With gorgeous pictures to match of course ;) You’ve also gone and brought my silent love affair with London boiling back to the surface… I’ll have to pop over from my side of the pond soon and get my hands on some of that coffee #addict

    On a clothes-related note, where is your sports bra from?

  33. If only you posted these places 2 weeks ago!

  34. Shini, the layout of this post is genius. Absolutely love it. Really beautiful. I hope you’re planning on doing more posts like this for different locations in London.

    p.s. desperate to dip one of those fries into the ketchup in the SS photo. It looks so good.

    p.s.s. love the burberry plaid that’s making a flash. So cool.

  74. too enjoyable a blog post here- I love the fresh new ways you come up with to present your posts! This is the fifth post I’ve read in a row so far, and without a doubt I’m going on to the next. Just gonna pause here and say something – your writing is one of a kind. And might’ve convinced me that my previous trip to London wasn’t complete. (Is it ever?)
