From Up North




I have two passions in life; The first one is obviously design and the other one is cooking. So when I'm not behind the computer I'm most probably behind the stove experimenting with various flavours and textures.

Pillar Box Post




One of the (many) reasons behind starting a blog was to be able to share my life in London with my friends and family back in the US. I love mail, but life got in the way of correspondence and a blog seemed dual purpose to 'sending letters'. A pillar box is a British mailbox and is iconic for design, so it mixes my two loves and has a fabulous link to the 'posting' of daily letters–aka blogging. And now that I've moved to New York City, the blog allows all the people I left behind in the UK to see what I'm up to! So it's come full circle.

Good Copy, Bad Copy




It’s about corporatese – that awful jargon-rich, clichéd and verbose form of language people use at work because they think it impresses. I poke fun at this corp speak and show business people how to ditch it in favour of talking like human beings. I started the blog because I saw clients making the same writing mistakes over and over again, and I’ve kept it going because it’s still fun to point out the ridiculous things people say at work.

Beautiful Crime
