Lady’s Sneak Peek at the Georgia O’Keeffe Exhibition at Tate Modern

In most cities, summer is a time get outdoors. Then there’s London. While elsewhere people make plans for picnics in parks, we prepare for indoor activities. Which is one reason why it’s worth heading to the new Georgia O’Keeffe exhibition at Tate Modern when it opens tomorrow. It’s going to be this summer’s hottest ticket, and I just got a sneak peek…

Lady’s 8 Food Tours that will Make You Want to Travel the World

I will travel for food. For me there’s no better way to get to know a city than through its cuisine. Hot and spicy or rich and buttery, the dishes of a destination tell the story of a place through their aromas and textures. I was recently in The Hague on assignment with Lonely Planet, and while there I took a food tour of the city. It got me thinking about similar experiences I’ve had, and today I bring you 8 of the world’s best food tours.

Lady’s 7 Restaurants You Have to Try for Weekday Breakfast in London

I have a confession to make. I’ve been starting work later than I used to. Not because I’m sleeping in or slacking off, though. It’s because I’ve been on a bit of a morning mission. I would love to say I wake up early to go to the gym, but that would be a lie (and I wouldn’t do that to you!). The real reason might appeal more: I’ve been making my way around the city to find the best weekday breakfast in London. Here’s what getting an early start has shown me…

The London Coffee Festival starts today! Coffee aficionados across the city are buzzing with excitement over the annual caffeine fest.

Lady’s 8 Wanderlust-Inducing International Pubs in London

I love a good pub. One of the most exciting things about moving to London was discovering all the great pubs in the city, from the famous boozers to the local secrets. But over the years I’ve discovered that the English don’t have the pub market cornered in London. Given the city’s amazing diversity, there are pubs here from all over the world. And given a Swedish pub in Marylebone just launched last week, I figured now’s a good time to share 8 international pubs in London that are perfect for homesick expats, adventurous locals, and curious visitors.
