This site centres around telling you lot about seriously awesome places to go in East London and beyond. If something’s 'only alright', I don’t bother telling you about it. What’s the point in emailing you about something which is borderline bland, when you live in the best goddamn city in the world?

I also never bad-mouth places - no one likes that guy. Opinions are objective, so what gives us the right to slag people off? That's why I tell you what I think, but pair it with a whole bunch of photos, so you can make your own minds up too.

I'm big into music, fashion, interiors, good food, strong booze and making the most of my days. I love start-ups, independents, creatives and newbies, so I try and support the businesses in my community as much as possible. Mostly though, I’ve got a massive fat crush on London and all the awesome places it has to offer.

Enjoy - peace out,

Rachel Claire

    Hi Rachel,

    I’ve just moved from Lincolnshire! Like your blog! I wondered if you could possibly help…
    I am working on a Channel 5 documentary about the British commuting experience. I’m trying to find commuters who are looking for love on their commute. The filming will be an enjoyable experience for the people taking part and will explain the methods people use to either find a date on their commute or track down the fellow commuter who has caught their eye.

    As you can imagine, there’s no easy way to find these people! I therefore wondered if you could possibly help by putting something on your website and/or tweeting something about it?

    It should be a fun, romantic sequence and will hopefully unite two star-crossed commuters!

    I look forward to hearing from you.

    Kind Regards,
