Squat and Gobble

Squat and Gobble in Charlotte Str

"Mmmmm what will I have today..."

London living has quite some getting used to after living in SA all my life. Firstly, there’s the whole tube, train and taxi thing. Secondly, for the first time in three years, I find myself looking for a job. The last job I had I didn’t really have to apply for – I know, how lucky was I – it was an internship that just sort of progressed into a full-blown crazy career.

So now that I’m killing some time between interviews and meeting recruitment agencies, I find myself on the hunt for cute coffee shops. Luckily, I now live in London so it’s not like I have to search very far… Quirky coffee joints are a dime a dozen in le londres.

My latest find is… Squat and Gobble.

Squat and Gobble can be found in Charlotte Street – No. 69 to be exact. It’s small and cosy, smells delicious and they sell really ginormous bacon and egg sandwiches – which although I didn’t sample – looked gobble-worthy.

While I was there, a business deal was being closed at one table while at another, two gay Koreans yakked away while drinking endless cups of frothy cappuccinos and an irritated German-tourist-lady flicked through her map book while sighing rather loudly. Squat attracts all sorts…

They’ve got a super cute website (http://www.squatandgobble.co.uk) too so if you have a moment take a squiz before heading down there for the real thing.

I’m going back for a second helping…

Burberry keeps it in the family

So, what do we have here? Emma… And her brother, Alex.

Mmmm I wonder how that happened?! Do you think Emma called Christopher Bailey up and said, “So Chris, I have this brother right…. And he’s really really incredibly good looking. Do you have a gig for him?”

Some siblings just have all the luck (or is that looks?) – and extremely beautiful wardrobes.

Burberry’s new Spring/Summer 2010 campaign was shot by Mario Testino. Here’s one of Emma and her seventeen year old brother Alex.

Pixie Lott – Use Somebody

Before I left SA, I heard on 5FM that Pixie Lott had done an acoustic cover of the amazing Kings of Leon track, Use Somebody. I finally checked it out today on YouTube… And, oh.my.god. It’s amazing.

You simply have to check it out. Pixie’s vocal ability will astound you.

Pixie is also currently on the cover of InStyle magazine.

Can somebody say, 'Glam'?

I predict that 2010 is going to be her year. Watch this space… Don’t make me say, “I told you so.”
