We welcomed in the New Year at Lynsey & Claire's in Ealing. We caught the night train back and everyone was very drunk and friendly. My new year’s resolutions are to be super organized, craft l...
Back To London
We caught the train back to London this evening. Luckily we had the presents from Kirsty Legg and Malcolm Brown to keep us fed.
I've been decluttering my room and it's starting to look very neat and tidy. I can't believe how many boxes I've thrown out. Our last day back in Scotland was spent with my parents in Edinburgh. W...
Still Jenny From The Loch
Jenny was back from Japan, so we met up with her in Edinbrugh for a day of fun and cock-of-tails. She told us lots of stories about Japan, which has convinced us to go and visit at some point next ...
Back To The North
We headed up to Perth this morning with my family, which was heavily covered in snow. We had a snowball fight with my Dad. We warmed up with breakfast at Spoons. My Nana is wearing her squirrel b...
Today we went through to Pittenweem with Tom’s parents. The streets were so icy and slippery so everyone was walking on the beach instead. We had lunch and hazelnut hot chocolate at the Cocoa Tre...
Merry Christmas
We had an awesome Christmas again this year. Tom and I woke up to stuffed stockings from my parents at the end of the bed this morning. Gifts included American dollars for our trip, Joseph Joseph ...
It Was The Night Before Christmas
Today we headed through to a very snowy and cold Edinburgh. I tried to spot as many snowmen as I could. We went to see Joey D in his shop and took him some mince pies. He was very sweet and told ...
The Kingdom Of Fife
After waking up at 5 am, pilling in to a a taxi with suitcases filled to the brim with presents and watching movies on a 6 hour train journey, we’re back in Scotland and everything’s covered in sno...
Winter Wonderland
Tonight the few of us who were left in London went for Christmas dinner at The Diner in Camden. I brought the remaining crackers from our tree so that we could tell jokes and wear crowns while we t...
Snowy Mews
It’s looking quite snowy in the Mews. I hope it's going to be a white Christmas.
Geeky Presents
There was a little time for some last minute Christmas crafting so I made my Nana a squirrel brooch. I also made Tom a set of RSS and Social Networking Cushions.
Sparkly Skulls
Tonight was our Christmas party at the Mews for our friends. Before the party, Tom surprised me with a bag from Vivienne Westwood. My party outfit consisted of a black H&M dress, necklace from...
Knitty Kitty
I seem to craft so much faster when it’s cold outside. This week I finished my patchwork quilt, which I had started back in the summer. I had the bulk of the work finished in two days and then left...
Mermaid Ahoy!
Today was the day we got the mermaid in our LEGO advent calendar. Our nautical scene is almost complete though I'm not sure what it has to do with Christmas.
Tom’s boss Mal was hosted an evening at the office tonight, where he showed us the video of Hugh Grant shaving off his moustache. It was really funny.
Taylor Taylor
This morning we had breakfast at Fifteen. I highly recommend scrambled eggs & mushroom on toast with a side of baked beans and a tasty smoothie. Afterwards I had a haircut at Taylor Taylor. T...
Tiffany Tuck Shop
We ran in to a Santa convention at Trafalgar Square this morning. There must have been over a thousand people in Santa Claus outfits – apparently they were trying to raise awareness for Christmas....
Grange Hill
At the start of the year, Tom set himself the mission of getting to the end of every tube line on the map and he only has a couple left to do, so I’ve been keeping him company. We went past Grange ...
Pegboard Fun
I've been busy crafting for Christmas today. The first thing I made was a 3 D Glasses Hama Necklace for Lynsey Munn.
The Christmas Mini Issue
We launched Snippets 18, The Christmas Mini Issue today with Twinkie Chan on the cover today. We've also got music from Plasticines and the Lucky Victims, a tutorial and interview with designers Ca...
Tonight we went to the pub quiz at Gordon James Ramsay's pub in Chiswick with Norman Tallman and Ben Pettifer. It only costs £2 to enter and they give you lots of little snacks from the kitchen in ...
Forever 21
I’ve fallen in love with Forever 21. They sell such pretty clothes and our first order arrived this week. I got a couple of dresses, skirts, belts, a pair of boots and Tom got lots of cool t-shirts...
we were at a mini Christmas for Mel at Ben & Dave’s with mulled wine, yummy food and generic presents to open.
I'll Be Your Friend, You Just Haven't Made Me Yet
We started decorating our tree tonight. We’re going to have a December party and have all our friends come over to help decorate, drink mulled wine, eat mince pies and listen to the Bright Eyes Chr...
Beer O'Clock
Emma and I headed in to town to meet Tom from work. It was Beer O’Clock at the Leap offices, so we were invited in for drinks, organic chocolate and a game of Jenga, while Malcolm (the boss) was ou...
Christmas Tree
Tonight we picked up this year's Christmas tree from Clifton Nurseries. We thought we had picked a similar size to last year but it turned out to be 2 foot taller and much heavier. Luckily a nice b...
Tonight we went to see Twilight. I still can’t make my mind up about the film, so Lynz has lent me her book of it to read. It was an 11.30pm screening, so we had the whole cinema to ourselves, whi...
Lego Advent Calendar
We’d been looking forward to December so that we could open our LEGO advent calendar. It’s pirate themed and each day you get something to build, I’m looking forward to getting the little Lego mer...


Green & Black
The LEAP ANYWHERE office were sent 1,500 bars of Green & Blacks chocolate, so Tom came home from work with a big box of them.
