Pretty crazy to see your home town like this…. These photos are from the London blitz during WW2 and have been edited into colour and more sharpness.
Today I just felt like riding the bus all day. So I did, pretty much. Trains and busses are such great places to think. I love just sitting there watching things, people, buildings go by outside the window – you can be part of it all but not have to interact.
True they can be ruined by smelly people, noisy people, annoying ringtones, too loud music, screaming kids, creepy people, dudes cutting their nails, greasy food smell, etc. But sometimes you’re lucky and you just get a nice, long, quiet and peaceful ride….
Familiar with the graffiti war between Banksy and Robbo? Took a short stroll back where it started along the canal today and it seems it’s still going on.
Although this is a paste-up so not too sure what’s going on here… Camden council’s own stunt?
I light candles in my room every night.
A fox is barking outside my house.
I wish I could find a restaurant in London that does pizzas as good as in Sweden.
My favourite makeup remover is Body Shop’s seaweed cleanser – makeup gone in seconds and it’s not tested on animals.
I wear crystals for protection and guidance.
I keep buying plants/flowers for my house but they always die…
Just because it’s gorgeous. Just like the day was today in London.

Today a truly remarkable person left us. He was one of the most amazing men I have ever had the pleasure of knowing. Only 2 days ago they found the tumor. Today he died.
It made me realise that life is precious and many times we take it for granted. For a few years I had not spoken with or seen him. But why? If he was such a great friend.
We often leave people behind as we change and move on in our lives, but we should try harder to keep the good ones with us always.
Did anyone go see the exhibition Hell’s Half Acre in the Old Vic Tunnels a couple of years ago? Organized by the ever so brilliant Lazarides gallery, they put together artwork and installations from a bunch of different artists on the Lazarides’ books. They have since had two other shows in the tunnels – Mindful in September last year and The Minotaur which was held two months later.
Check Lazarides’ website for any future shows, or The Old Vic Tunnels for other shows hosted in the tunnels.
Personally I can’t wait for the next Old Vic/Lazarides collab… Or the partys hosted by Old Vic sounds pretty wicked too!
I realise there´s a bit much hippie and nature bollocks on here lately but I´m on holiday back home, spending time with the family I rarely see and resting/destressing according to doctor´s orders. Couple more days and I´ll be back in the London hustle.
