In the final instalment I will be linking back to everyone who’s worked on the project and of course to all the products as well.

The Best Smoked Salmon bagels
at Panzer’s Deli, St John’s Wood

Panzers-Smoked-Salmon-St-Johns-Wood

St John’s Wood is such a pretty part of London. It’s calm and gentle and some of the houses make exceptional insta fodder…

For years, Panzer’s Deli has been the foodie & grocery hub of St John’s Wood, with customers as loyal as they come, and see more elderly shoppers who’ve frequented it for much of their lives. It had stayed the same for years and years… until recently, when it had an almighty (and extremely beautiful) facelift.

The Choir With No Name

Choir-With-No-Name-Poppy-Loves-10 Singing has always been a huge part of my life. When I was small we sang as a family all the time – in the back of the car, on the way to school, in the bath (it’s how I learnt my times tables) around the piano or trudging through the woods… “we’re going on a bear hunt…” It all sounds a bit Von Trapp, but it really wasn’t. It was fun and silly and a way of learning how to express myself that worked, before I had a greater power of language.

Girls’ Night INin

Sainsburys-Supper-Club

Something happens when a group of girls get together. Especially a group of pals who have known each other for years… it’s inexplicable.
