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. Then I went to Jenius Social‘s Sunday cooking class and went home with a fresh, colourful batch of macarons made by moi and I’m now legit convinced miracles do happen. … More Macarons cooking class at Jenius Social

Black Cat Cabaret

I’ve loved Cabaret, Burlesque and acrobatic performances since before becoming a pole dancer, but after I joined the “upside down” crew, events like these are simply unmissable. Naturally then, I was thrilled to have been invited to the opening run of the Black Cat Cabaret‘s festive show, an evening I was looking forward to so … More Black Cat Cabaret

Silent Night at sketch London

There are many ways to start your morning. I usually start mine with a pole session, reading academic journals for my PhD or going to work. This morning however I was among the first Londoners that got to see sketch London‘s Christmas light installation to kick off the holiday season, and as you’ll see if you … More Silent Night at sketch London

My favourite bits of Stylist Live 2017

If you’ve been following my social media spam, you already know I spent my Friday at Stylist Live by Stylist at the Olympia. I had always wanted to go, but since when it started I worked 9-6 it had never been possible. This year however I managed to get free tickets to the event and I spent a busy, … More My favourite bits of Stylist Live 2017

Skylight London Winter Launch

I’m typing this amidst the symptoms of a hangover, and the drinks I’ve had at Skylight London‘s winter relaunch (read: three, over several hours #Caro2Sips) are to blame. I could just go and get a bagel instead, but I’d rather get all my fact straight about what was the best rooftop experience I can remember. … More Skylight London Winter Launch

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

Supporting the sisters at the East London Strippers Collective

“We’re a bunch of feisty feminists who happen to love to take their clothes off,” said the MC from the East London Strippers Collective – a perfectly apt opening line to describe a raucous riot of a night, where talented performers were in charge of the stage and their body, the crowd was fun, young … More Supporting the sisters at the East London Strippers Collective

Drinks behind bars at Alcotraz London

Guard: “Lady, what are you trying to do? GET INTO THAT JUMPSUIT!” Me [wearing an awfully impractical tight pink dress]: “Sorry sir, just trying not show too much here!” My friend Mariola, who knows my pole dancer Insta feed all too well: “That is the first time I’ve ever heard here say that.” No, this … More Drinks behind bars at Alcotraz London

Went Hairclubbing And There’s No Going Back

I hate getting my hair done. You go and make small talk with a stranger who often pulls your hair rather than brushing it softly. Then you come out and you’re not satisfied and have to deal with the result. Hence why my hair is a long untameable mass of split ends and I never … More Went Hairclubbing And There’s No Going Back

10 Books to read on your Italian summer holiday

Something happens to me while on holiday in my country. I’ve been lucky enough to relax on beaches and by pools in the United States, Australia, Bali, Singapore… but nothing is quite like lying on a beach in my homeland of Sardinia, Italy. Here, the vibe (and the fact that my mother hardly lets me … More 10 Books to read on your Italian summer holiday
