Favourite neighbourhood:

Waterloo because it’s right by the water. Also close to everything but feels doesn’t feel as overly fast paced.

 

Favourite place for brunch:

Cheeky Nando’s.

 

Best coffee in London:

Omotesando Koffee. Found out about this gem last year. It’s definitely worth the visit.

 

Favourite gallery or museum:

National Portrait Gallery.

 

Tell us a secret:

I want to visit Seoul, Korea in the next year. Always been fascinated with the Far East especially Korea. I like to explore obscure destinations with a limited amount of tourists and I think Korea ticks that box.

 

Favourite place to shop:

On the SNKRS app. Easiest and hardest places to get the fire trainers.

 

Favourite place to find inspiration:

The Southbank by far. It has an energy which makes me feel like I’m in London and London inspires me.

Bocca Di Lupo for an Italian, then on to Two Floors on Kingly Street.

 

Favourite park:

Hampstead Heath.

 

Favourite food market:

Borough Market.

 

Your sanctuary in the city:

A cosy and quiet cinema.

Free Love and open minds. If you have this you can gain inspiration without looking for it.

MSGM.
