After going for my longest run (I ran 8k last Sunday, guys, and so this is happening, I’m feeling so proud of myself) I wanted to treat myself with a nice brunch. Boyfriend got it for him, too. You know, it was Sunday, I had earned it, it was the beginning of the end of the … More Balans Soho Society Clapham: A Pleasant Surprise
On a corner at St. John’s Hill there is Story Coffee, a hidden precious cafe near Clapham Junction. (Don’t move South, they say…). Story Coffee.

Look carefully at this … More The Cappuccino Series goes #mocha: Bermondsey Street Coffee

Which means: you will find great places, with a better price than the ones near Trafalgar Square, Picadilly, Soho and others, with great people and a unique … More #TheCappuccinoSeries: Fowlds

I finally start working on my final essays and my dissertation, whereas I work for the great Southbank Centre as an intern. Great times are coming! Therefore, I hereby … More #TheCappuccinoSeries: Machine (and the Bermondsey Bomb)
