Seriously, though? We get to choose between an array of savoury or sweet treats and enjoy them ALL DAY LONG. To say that we will be spoilt for choice at this event in Kings Cross on Saturday 18th July is quite the understatement. We have been drooling over the options on the list of KERB traders that will be cooking up a feast on the day.
2. FIZZY BOOZE...
When is it acceptable to drink before midday? BRUNCH.
Inlcuded in your ticket is not one, but two delicious beverages to wash down your pancakes with.
An Aperol Spritz will be sipped on arrival and then you are offered a complimentary glass of fizzy wine to keep you going for the day. We heart bubbles.
Saunter past the fountains of Granary Square and round to Stable Street. Just opposite the big screen and deckchairs set out for Wimbledon-watchers is where you will find Dishoom - a Victorian Warehouse turned 1930’s Bombay café.
Dishoom has been a firm favourite for foodies since they opened their doors to diners in Covent Garden in 2010, followed by another café in Shoreditch in 2012. Imagine my elation on hearing that their latest and largest space is just a few minutes away from my front door. Bonus.
The first thing that you notice when you step into Dishoom is how beautiful the décor is - vintage yet urban with cosy booths, whirring ceiling fans, a big hanging railway clock and mezzanine levels that you want to explore immediately.
Don’t you just love it when you stumble upon a hidden gem of a charity shop? Maybe you are looking for the perfect sandals to complete your festival look, a summer dress for a prosecco-fueled picnic in the park or a vibrant cardi to make you stand out from the crowd at the next roof terrace party?
Look no further, people - I know just the place.
Pop Up 38 is a charity shop on Caledonian Road, which is filled with clothes, hats, shoes and jewellery - ranging from high street to vintage with some designer items, too. The best thing about the shop, though – alongside being such a colourful cove of top quality goodies - is the beautiful story behind it.
Kings Cross based Naomi Harper opened Pop Up 38 as a way to raise funds for a school in Afghanistan, continuing her father’s legacy. Dr Howard...
Wedding season is upon us; the save the dates are on the fridge, the hotels are getting booked and we’re buzzing about seeing old friends. Oh, how we love a good wedding. Here are 6 things that seem to happen at every single one…
1. Look Sharp
“I haven’t got anything to wear”
We love an excuse to dress up and often feel the pressure of buying a whole new outfit for the day. But as soon as we arrive at the ceremony we remember that no one gives a flying feck if you are re-using last season’s suit or dress. It’s all about the bride/groom and bride/groom, of course.
2 Free-flowing Alcohol
“I’m definitely going to pace myself”
You are absolutely not.
We are aware that daytime drinking can be a dangerous game but at a wedding it's completely unavoidable. Our inner Frank t...
Meghan Markle is not only the actress who plays Rachel Zane in the US TV series Suits, but also the founder of her passion-driven lifestyle site, The Tig, where she shares stories and articles covering travel, food and fashion. On top of this, she is often flying to another corner of the globe to work on political and humanitarian issues such as the He for She campaign by UN Women.
Meghan is clearly a woman of many talents and one jam-packed schedule. We ask her to share some of her work highlights, inspirations and the best tips on how to cope with so many projects at once...
When you are filming Suits, how much influence do your fellow castmates have on ideas and advice for The Tig?
To be honest, while I sometimes overlap a bit of Suits onto The Tig, I try...
Pattern Coffee, located on the Kings Cross end of Caledonian Road, is an absolute treat and it is so much more than just a coffee shop. Here's why...
The décor for a start - everywhere you look there is a splash of colour and a unique interior feature – from the bowler hat lights to the step ladder-turned-bookshelf. Genius.
Then there is the quality of the coffee, which is top-notch (and I would know being a self-diagnosed caffeine addict). There is a generous selection of teas with lemon and ginger my personal favourite. To go along with the liquid refreshments are a yummy selection of croissants, wraps, soups and an array of cakes (I can actually hear the salted caramel brownies call out to me, I swear), which are all freshly made and easy on the wallet.
