Gorillaz at O2 Academy Brixton

What a show. What a night.

Its crazy to think the tickets were released a week before the gig and they completely sold out in the presale.


I was lucky enough to get tickets to attend this and watch Damon Albarn and special guests come up on stage to perform a huge 26 song set list ranging from their newest songs from ‘Humanz’ (including some unreleased songs which I especially loved) and fan favourites, such as Dirty Harry, Feel Good Inc. and Demon Dayz.


The band had so much energy throughout the whole show, performing every song with fervour and spirit.

Review: Hemsley + Hemsley Cafe

Hemsley + Hemsley Cafe Review | Add A LittleI met the lovely Hemsley sisters on their ‘Good and Simple’ book shoot last year (wow, how time flies!) and I’ve been eager to try out their cafe ever since I heard about it (especially after trying their food and knowing how delicious it was)! I’m such a big fan of their ethos of eating whole foods that do good and make you feel good.

Their cafe, situated on the new Body studio on the third floor at Selfridges, embodies their positive attitude towards healthy eating with bright and flavoursome dishes.
They have a wide range of choices to cater for any dietary needs. I’ve heard that the slow cooked chicken stew with cauliflower rice is particularly delicious and the salmon burger in the flaxseed bun caught my eye. However, on the particularly sunny day in London I was craving a salad. Knowing the Hemsley sisters, I knew I was in for a treat.
Because of the many choices (it was too hard to pick just one!) I went for the mix of the three: puy lentil salad with thinly sliced beetroot, tart apple, dried cranberries with a light maple vinaigrette; sesame soba and carrot noodles; and quinoa with roasted vegetables and brazil nut pesto.

I loved that I was able to try all three and the generous portion for £10 was a steal! My favourite was definitely the quinoa with roasted vegetables. It was packed with different flavours and textures and the pesto added a basil punch to the dish. Next time, I will definitely opt for a large serving of this.

They had a range of drinks and I went for the hardcore green juice as I’m a sucker for it when I see it on a menu! It was filled with green vegetables and herbs which gave it a lovely light flavour. Don’t worry, if you’re not so keen on the liquid vegetables, they also have a range of smoothies and hot drinks.
As well as this, of course they have some desserts options such as chocolate chip cookies, carrot cake and their famous paradise bars.

I highly recommend checking out the cafe as it’s a place that anyone can go and enjoy the food on offer. Although their food is free from gluten, grains and refined sugar, the meals they serve are packed  with flavour and substance and their wide range allows anyone to enjoy the food. But be warned that it’s very small so I would say to go early if you want to get a seat!

An Update on Blogging…

Don’t worry – I’m still here!

I know my blogging schedule has not been the best recently – it’s always the last minute stress of exams that seem to crawl over me and suddenly bam, haven’t blogged for what feels like a year!

But it’s not that I don’t want to blog, I really, really do! I’ve also been working a lot on my Youtube channel recently, doing little vlogs and other videos.

But now, I’m planning on doing something very exciting and also kind of scary, but a good kind of scary.  I’m going to expand my blog to also doing lifestyle posts.

Now don’t you worry, I’m not going to sit here babbling on about my new favourite lash extending super serum mascara, but just maybe once or twice a week I’ll also put up a post on an interesting exhibition or event I’ve been to.

I mean, this is all new to me so I’m absolutely no expert but I enjoy reading lifestyle blogs and for any of you that travel to London, maybe this will give you a nice idea of something to do, like maybe a gallery to visit?

And I will still be doing a recipe once a week and most of the time, a video to go along with that too but in addition to that I’ll also be blogging about something else too (and of course you have no obligation to read it, but it will be fun – join the parday!)

PLUS, I’ve got a super exciting holiday coming up and it will be so much fun to bring you guys with me and give you an insight!

Ok, so that’s pretty much it, let me know what you think!

Have a great day and I’ll see you soon!
