The Power of Color – Streetart around the world Part VII: London, UK

London is the only place I’ve done an actual street art tour in and it’s something I promised myself to do more of. Because that way you actually see more art around the streets than you would normally discover. And London definitely has plenty of it.
I’ll make sure to update this as soon as I go back there, which hopefully will be sooner than later.

10 Songs I can’t live without: Part V

It’s time again – my February (or all time) favourites are here! Happy listening.

#1 Nick Mulvey – Unconditional

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I always think about summer and the beach when I listen to Nick Mulvey. And about that incredible, intimate concert of his in Hamburg a couple of years ago. If you ever have the chance to go see him – do it!


#2 Mighty Oaks – All I need

 

 

 

 

 

 


#3 Angus and Julia Stone – For you

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

When I listen to that song I can’t really decide if I am deeply happy because of how beautiful Angus&Julia Stone’s music is or if I just want to crawl into my bed and cry all day. So many emotions.


#4 Kings of Convenience – Misread

 

 

 

 

 

Hey, Kings of Convenience, a new album would be nice!


#5 Vance Joy – Like Gold

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

A little tip: Vance Joy is on tour soon, so go check him out live! That reminds me.. I need to get the tickets as well.


#6 Jacob Banks – Unknown

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Another artist I’ve been introduced to by a friend. And I’ll be forever grateful for that.


#7 SZA, Travis Scott – Love Galore

 

 

 

 

This is to congratulate you to the baby, Travis Scott. And to bring a bit of HipHop into that list.


#8 Miguel – Skywalker

 

Just when I googled this it’s another Travis Scott influenced song. Not intentionally, but okay. I just love this song.


#9 Wombats – Turn

 

 

 

A NEW WOMBATS ALBUM and life is complete. I literally feel like a teenager again when I listen to their songs. Is that only me?


#10 Matt Corby – Brother

 

 

If you follow me on Instagram, you might have seen this song in my Story already. It’s just on of my all time favourites and I listen to it way too rarely, which is due to the fact that it’s not on Spotify. Get it on there please?

My Dublin favourites: Food, Drinks, Dance

A lot of times I get asked about my favourite places to go to in Dublin. This is why I put together this list of things I would recommend to everyone who’s ever coming to Dublin.

Favourite Pizza

  • The Big Blue Bus, Bernard Shaw – A pub with a pizza bus in their courtyard. Definitely don’t miss out on it!
  • Di Fontaines – A New York Deli kinda place where I can never not stop by after a night out.
  • Manifesto – SO DELICIOUS.
  • Skinflint – So good that I’ve already written an article about it here.

Favourite Bar

  • No Name Bar – This bar just has a super cool vibe, cool crowd and an even cooler smoking area.
  • Chelsea Drug Store – Delicious cocktails and later at night you can even dance to a pretty cool DJ downstairs.
  • Bernard Shaw – Yes, the second mention here, but it’s just a pretty cool pub full of art and creative people.

Favourite Place to Dance

  • Workmans – I just love it there, even though I can’t really explain to you what it is about this place. But it’s great.

Favourite Café

  • Kaph – This is the place where I fell in love with Matcha. And apparently their coffee is pretty good as well. 
  • Queen of Tarts – Definitely don’t go there if you only want a quick coffee. Their choice of cakes is enormous and I’m sure none of you would be able to go out there without trying one!
Oh, the beauty of Kaph's Matcha!

Favourite Dinner Spot

This is really hard because there are many cool places. Obviously the pizza places are all part of it but there are a few more.

  • Musashi – Really delicious Sushi in an authentic surrounding.
  • Yamamori – Another, maybe slighty fancier, Sushi place that I love.
  • Wow Burger – It started off as a Burger Place in Workman’s, but now they have different shops around town. Check it out, their fries and burgers are delicious!
  • Neon – A thai inspired restaurant that serves free ice cream with every dish!

Favourite Sweets

  • Marks&Spencers Cookies – This is not really particularly Dublin-ish but whenever I’m there I NEED to get Cookies from M&S because they are just the best things ever.
  • Brownies from Camerino – I am madly into Brownies, which is why I’d recommend the ones from Camerino to you, but I’m pretty sure the rest if their baked goods are just as delicious!

Favourite Breakfast/Lunch/Brunch

FAVOURITE BRUNCH EVER at Taco Taco

Favourite Place to calm down and relax

  • Botanic Gardens – As I’ve said on my Instagram before, I need to spend more time at Botanic Gardens because they are just so soothing and relaxing, especially when you’re in a big city.
