I feel totally bad for saying this, but I've meant to have written this post for a good year so now. Heck, I think the place has been open for well over a year now, and I've wanted to write about this place as soon as it landed in Kingston so for that I am genuinely so...

Merry Christmas everyone! 

(hey, I'm going to keep on celebrating Christmas until the end of those 12 days - try and stop me). 

This won't be too long of a post, do not fear. I'm currently sat packing to go back home to London after what has been a well-deserved (an...
