A remarkable island getaway with Mica and I apparently has made a highlight of 2019.

My headspace had been a little too clouded with conflicting life priorities, endless work, and a sense of regret stemming from taking on a (what I thought was a promising) new role outside London.

So in full gear with life, it was a much needed little break. And this would have been my first break since the Caribbean in January which has see...

“May I please I get a return to the end of the high street ”
The line which had become my lucid chorus to the bus drivers each morning.


An eventual broken record.



In London, my ‘Oyster’ tells the driver all and nothing.

Through Kendal Avenue and beyond
I am circled by rurality and farmlands
Taylor’s ‘Sad Beautiful Tragic’ in tune
Perfectly paired to complement this actuality .


Fogged by faces of white middle class English fo...

I booked to go to this one alone and have just spent 2 hrs after work at the Barbican. 


It’s been fascinating to experience for the very first time, a poetic series of 5 rooms delivered in the context of theatre.

The 5 rooms consisted of a kitchen, a hotel room, an office room, 33a, a girl’s room and a bathroom. 


In all 5, were accounts of poetic (and prosaic) series of the 5 characters.

Our theatre host would confine the 6...

Last year, I made it a personal obligation to eat more French food in London given that in 2018 I was too unwell to make my usual annual trip to the South of France or anywhere (I had planned) for that matter.

So here are my top 5 French restaurants in London for 2018

1. Les 110 de tailevent, Marylebone

What makes this restaurant so bloody amazing is the exquisite menu and the extensive wine list of 110 different wines. Thi...

All the way from her home, the ‘Blue House’ in Mexico, we are presented at the V&A with Frida Kahlo’s life reflected in her personal belongings.

One of the most recognized female artists of the 20th century.

I mirror many of this woman’s experiences specifically around her health issues. Sometimes I feel like I have travelled through a journey with her.

It was exactly a week ago, we walked into the Princess of Wales Conservatory.

Look at what we were surrounded with.

Colour, warmth, tropical gardens, history of 21st century horticulturists, modern plant hunters, poison frogs in aquariums and man made exhibition of orchids.


I even giggled in the Palm house when I saw the African Palm Tree that produces palm oil. My mouth watered for home made Nigerian food, cooked with fresh pal...
