Macarons cooking class at Jenius Social

Before last week, making macarons was up there with swimming with dolphins and finding an agent to publish my novel: kinda possible, but kinda hard.

A Healthy Day in Carnaby

When thinking of Carnaby Street, the word “bliss” doesn’t often come to mind. Carnaby is cool, fun, full of yummy restaurants and binge-worthy shops… but damn, it’s busy. Still, on a sunny Autumn Sunday morning, I managed to discover Carnaby’s chill side in the Marshall Street Leisure Centre‘s stunning Hot Yoga Studio. My Sunday started … More A Healthy Day in Carnaby
