Whistler and Pennell: Etching the city

Whistler and Pennell: Etching the city is a special exhibition at Sudley House, a lovely small museum in Liverpool. I visit Sudley House regularly as their special exhibitions are usually fascinating. In 2017 I saw the exhibitions the 1930s and Transformation, and in 2018 I went to see Fashion from the 1950s, and Costume Drama […]

Festus' Choice

Festus’ choice

Festus’ choice might sound a bit cheesy for a post title, but I think it describes perfectly what the post is about: choosing. After Christmas I shared a few pictures with Festus picking up his favourite treat from the ones he had under the tree, if you’ve missed the post, it’s here. He had only […]

Kat von D 24 hours Super Brow

Kat von D Super Brow

I got this Kat von D Super Brow pomade six months ago and I’m very happy with it. I knew I might like to make a post about it, so before using it for the first time I took some pictures. This is a very good makeup. It lasts for a long time, those 24 […]

Best 12 museums I visited in 2019

Last year I was asked by someone doing research how many museums I’ve been to that year and he was shocked by my answer: 50. It was an estimation, but a very good one. So, that made me think of making a round-up of the museums I liked. Here it is: Best 12 museums I […]

Room at History of Science Museum

History of Science Museum

It is free to visit, but they do accept donations, and they also have pretty interesting things in their gift shop. They don’t have tea rooms, but Bodleian’s tea rooms are on the opposite side, so you can have […]

Think about your food

Think about your food

In January, after the festive season, we are bombarded with “new year new you” ads, urging us to sign up to the gym and of course, to eat healthy food. The whole idea of eating in December and go on a diet in January is unhealthy because we should make conscientious decisions daily. This is […]

Highlights of 2019

My 2019, by month

I love doing this kind of round-ups at the end of the year. As my blog is primarily a diary, I’m often going back in the archives to see places I’ve been to or what I was doing the year before. This will be a quick reminder of the highlights from this year. It was […]
