Tom’s Cakes, Mill Road

Mill Road in Cambridge is still quite a mystery to me. The long road is where all the cool things happen – the best stocked charity shops, the best restaurants, the cosiest cafes. So I went to test out one of the cosy cafe called Tom’s Cakes. [Read more…]

Anglesey Abbey

There are still so many places I want to visit in and around Cambridge, so I decided to make a list and invite people to come explore with me. First up on my list is Anglesey Abbey, a Jacobean house owned by the National Trust, just outside Cambridge.

I grabbed Jess, who’s been SO busy recently it’s been hard to catch her, to check this place out. We went quite late in the day, so took a lovely walk around the gardens just before dusk. [Read more…]

Lazy Sunday Links 19th February

I’m missing Japan a fair bit today. It happens often. Life was so fun, and I had no responsibilities. I had a place of my own, and an amazing cat.

I attended a photography course yesterday (proper writeup later!) and I just thought the whole time how amazing it was living in Japan and having awesome things to take photos of every day. Here in Cambridge, sure, it’s gorgeous, but because it’s my own culture it’s hard to find the little details that make it unique.

Let’s have some linkies to cheer me up!

Steven’s been to an amazing-looking bakery in Florida and it’s making me hungry for cake.

This studio organised for selfies and instagram photos is amazing. I really need to get a prop shelf…

I look this glimpse into fast food in Saudi Arabia.

I really loved Nicole’s post about saying no. I often feel that I am the person to bend for everyone else all the time, but in the past few weeks I’ve slowly been switching to doing things how I want to do them, thinking that if people take issue, I can review. It’s working really well for me so far – and Nicole’s post has made me feel so much stronger in doing this.

Nicole was also the one who linked to this – a really good post about how we should stop using “girlboss” and be telling young girls they should be THE boss.

OK, who wants to come on a roadtrip holiday to a beach with me? (Reason to click – first photo on the post is a lovely guy in a lovely bath…)

Apparently, the newest New York food craze is raw cookie dough. I wonder if it’ll come over here, too?

These places to eat alone in Basel look so lovely. Perhaps I should book myself a trip…

My two worst things in life are networking and sweating. So what have They come up with? Sweatworking.

If you’ve got an interview coming up, Jade’s got some amazing interview advice for you!

No video today!

Have an awesome Sunday!

Brunch in Cambridge: Catesby’s

When you think of brunch in Cambridge, there are those names that always come up. We know who they are. We know their game. But how about trying somewhere that’s not obvious?

Traipsing round town one rainy day, I came across Catesby’s, a lovely “pretty stuff to go in your home” shop, with a cafe upstairs. I took a photo of the menu and made a date with a friend. [Read more…]
