• JC Travels: Petworth and the South Downs

    April 12, 2015

    I love London. I really do, the hustle and bustle is just what I need at this point in my life. But that being said, I still need pretty regular breaks to get out of the city and just… breathe. It’s essential to get some headspace and greenery pretty often. I haven’t been travelling that much…

    January 22, 2015

    I love my job, but it does mean that I travel and work where my projects are. This means it has been a long time since I worked in central London and I do miss it! There is nothing like wandering around London to remind me why I moved here and what I love about…

  • JC Explores: London Sipsmiths Gin Distillery!

    December 12, 2014

    I love me some gin. When I was younger, I hated all kinds of alcohol – wine, beer, cider, spirits, pretty much all of it, unless it was exceptionally sweet and barely tasted of anything else (RTDs!).
