    Blogmas | Martha's 2015

    Well, in all honesty, it's not been my favourite year. In passing, within posts, Nikki and I may have mentioned that 2015 has been rather harsh for both of us, but as it draws to a close, you've got to search for that silver lining.
    Yes, the majority of 2015 was truly awful. However, this year I found a new appreciation for my family's support, I feel closer to my best friends than ever before, I got to travel to Paris with my soulmate (Nikki), and I met my wonderful boyfriend.
     I'm willing to thank the bad things in 2015, without them I wouldn't be strutting into 2016, the confident, strong woman I am.
    Here are my highlights:

    Blogmas | Elf the Musical ★★


    Yesterday evening it was Date Night, so we headed to the Dominion Theatre to watch Elf the Musical.  I certainly had high hopes and perhaps they were too high. Being in love with the film and Will Ferrell I knew the musical had a lot to live up to but did it?

    Blogmas | Martha in Winter Wonderland

    Other than blogmas I've had a distinct lack of festive factors in my December; I've been too busy getting ready for Christmas, that I haven't actually had time to FEEL Chritsmassy....leave it to Winter Wonderland to sort that out!

    Blogmas | Girls Christmas Evening

    Cheers to the weekend everyone! Hope it’s been a good one so far. This weekend, Martha (my bestie/other of Split the City) and Emma (my bestest friend) decided to have our very own Christmas celebrations together. And obviously it was all worthy of sharing with our lovely readers.

    Blogmas | Being Veggie at Christmas

    I've been veggie since birth, so it's very natural to me, however I can appreciate Christmas is a time when some vegetarians will feel a little back-benched. IT'S ALL ABOUT MEAT.
    But don't get stuck with eating the side dishes, there are plenty of good, filling veggie meals.

    Blogmas | Random Act of Kindness


    Hello there and welcome back to our Blogmas and it is now officially 1 week until Christmas day. How scary/exciting/really scary. I really hope that you have been enjoying our Blogmas as much as we have enjoyed thinking of fun and interesting posts to share with you. We have still found it hard writing and thinking of 12 posts each across the 24 days due to our jam packed schedules so we are feeling for those bloggers who have written 24! Hats off to you all.

    Blogmas | Ekcovision, Brixton

    Ekcovision, a 1920s speakeasy-styled bar, is the newest jewel in Brixton's 'up-and-coming' crown. You'll find it under the train arches along Atlantic Road; there's been a few things popping up along there ever since Brixton Market began to get the sort of recognition it deserves, but I have to say, so far, Ekcovision is certainly my favourite.
    We went during the evening and experienced the place as a bar, but it is open, and serving, what looks like a beautiful, brunch during the day.

    Blogmas | Christmas Party Spread

    Happy Blogmas Day 16. With only 8 days of Blogmas to go, that means Christmas is less than two weeks away and oh my, I need to get Christmas shopping finished. With already a few bits purchased I still need to get the final few bits and cards! In my family, cards are very important. I think it is so nice to receive Christmas Cards and it is nice to not loose the tradition of hand written cards - in my opinion.

    Blogmas | A Christmas Escape

    London at Christmas is sheer magic, there's no two-ways about it, it just is. 
    However, there's something special as well about sneaking away with your boyf, or your bestie, for a little Christmas escape. It makes it feel like your life is The Holiday (included in N's last post).

    Blogmas | Favourite Christmas Posts (Not Ours)

    I am extremely proud of what we've achieved this year; to think that it wasn't until late Spring that Nikki and I started blogging together baffles me. And if I look at the milestones we've accomplished together, in that time, I beam with pride.
    But it's time to give a little something back to the blogging community, that's been so overwhelmingly generous, and welcoming to us.

    Blogmas | Best Christmas Jumpers

    This is a post I have been so excited to share with you. I'm a very festive kinda person so wearing a Christmas jumper is a must this time of year and especially on Christmas Jumper Day which is matched with 'Text Santa' on Friday 18th December. To donate £5 text SANTA5 to 70760 or donate £10 by texting SANTA10 to 70760. This is a very great cause and the money raised is donated to Macmillan, Make a Wish and Save the Children. So far they have raised more than £21 million which is phenomenal.




    Now onto some wonderful Christmas jumpers on the market this year, in no particular order:

    Blogmas | The Hope, Peckham

    I think Christmas is a time to be at home. There's little that beats that feeling of seeing the 'Welcome to Sleaford' (where I grew up) sign on Christmas Eve. 
    But over the past four years my home has shifted slightly; I'll always love Lincolnshire, and the warmth of seeing my family and friends back there. But South East London is my home; it's where I spend every night, and it's where people smile at each other in the street. It's home.
    So what better way to celebrate, with friends, at somewhere with that beautiful homely, local vibe. Enter The Hope, in Peckham.


    The Hope's neon signage had been long calling to me, so to be invited there was a dream come true. Nikki's first foray into Peckham had only actually happened a week earlier, for my birthday, and I threw her in the deep end by bullying her into attending a reggae night at Canavans Pool Club. I think The Hope redeemed me!

    Blogmas | Be A Friend Campaign

    Coca Cola can step aside, because the real advert that signals Christmas now (at least for me) is John Lewis. It's not Christmas until some ethereal girl is singing a slowed down cover, of an old indie song, over some heart-wrenching acting. This year it's all about The Man on the Moon.
    This years advert is carrying such a strong message too; loneliness in old people is far too common, and what a devastating way to spend your Christmas! A tiny act of kindness can go a long way, and the campaign 'Be A Friend' is championing that.

    Hope you enjoyed day 1 of Blogmas, which was Martha's 'What I got for my birthday'. I am kicking it off with a slightly festive Christmas Wishlist.

    I'm one of those people who is non stop and I don't like saying no to things.

    Cycle Revolution | Design Museum

    On Saturday morning, The Design Museum in Bermondsey, kindly invited us for a bloggers breakfast and the opportunity to be shown around their newest exhibition; Cycle Revolution.
    The exhibition is pitched as a celebration of the diversity of contemporary cycling in Britain.
    Reviewing a museum is new to Split the City, but because cycling culture is very much on the rise in London (who can go a day without seeing a Boris bike?) it made sense for us to go see it. Also, we were very excited to visit the Design Museum, because as an establishment it's prestigious and famous for its devotion to design, in every form; something we definitely appreciate. 
    It's also interesting to our blog concept as the museums current location is in South East (I throw my confetti), but come 2016 will be moving to Kensington (Nikki maniacally laughs).

    As I Approach 22...

    As the older half of Split the City, I have the scary delight of turning 22 this month. As much as I'm excited to legitimately sing THAT Taylor Swift song all year round, 22 seemed a scary age to me for a while;
    It's not 21, where you've just reached official adulthood and can still be excused for mishaps....it's not 20, where you're not 21 yet...and it's certainly not 19, where you're still a teenager. 22 is a grown age.
    However, for what may be the first time ever, I'm somewhat prepared for this age. I've had the most difficult year of my life, and I've learnt a few difficult lessons, but they've all brought me to a place in my life where I feel confident and prepared.
    As I approach 22, here is what I know:

    Travel to... | Oxford

    Living in London is awesome and I love it so much. I never feel like there is nothing to do, it's the opposite, too much to do, busy and non - stop which can make you feel a bit dizzy and tends to lead to me heading to the countryside to see my lovely parents. It's nice to have the break from the big smoke but this weekend was different rather than heading home I headed for the wonderful city that is Oxford. My sister studied at Brookes University so I visited her during that period but now around 4 years has passed since then and it was a delight to go back.

    The Importance of Am Dram

    Something people may not know is that Nikki and I have both worked professionally as actors; it's a big dream of both of ours, and a huge passion. We spent one Saturday trawling through the shelves in the NT Bookshop, and it just hammered home to me how much I adore devouring a character and a plot. There is however, a slight depression that comes with not being able to fulfill your dream day after day; having the talent but having no luck. Both me and Nikki champion Fringe venues wherever we can, having performed at The Yard, Hackney and Soho Theatre. 
    Yes, acting, like other jobs, is down to damn hard work, but a part of it is just luck; luck you fit the right casting, luck you know the right person, etc... Hence why amateur dramatic societies are so important; they're filled with people who love to create, and just do it!
    The company I work for has their own amateur dramatic society; The Carat Players, and I recently went to see their production of Death by Design at the New Diorama Theatre
    The play was a hoot - a farcical murder mystery with an endearingly abusive couple at its centre, surrounded by an abundance of eccentrics. Each actor/colleague never once stumbled or corpsed, even when there was some 1930s twerking going on. 
    What shone through was how much love there was in the production, everyone - director, lighting, cast - was so thrilled to be part of something special, and importantly, FUN. 
    There was true talent on display and the same level of dedication that you'd find in professional theatre companies. The show was executed without a glitch, and the pride of the participants, when taking their bows to well-earned, rapturous applause, was infectious. 
    I'd actually never been to the New Diorama Theatre but with such bargain ticket prices it's going to become a regular haunt. With 80 seats, it's intimate yet professional, and has such dedication to establishing emerging theatre companies.
    I suppose the point of this post, is go see the fringe stuff; the plays that don't have massive celebrity names on the poster, or X-Factor runners up on the cast list. Fringe venues, am dram societies, and professional companies working on a tight budget, have so much to give and are doing things purely because the want to be doing them. There are plays that provoke discussion and evoke emotion, new writing that's desperate to be seen; go see it, you won't regret that decision.
    I went to see Carat Players and I loved it, a good job all round!

    I Went West | El Patron, Putney

    Yep, you did read that correctly. I - Martha - PURPOSELY ventured over to West London as I heard there was some damn good Mexican food in that direction. As a vegetarian, and a complete foodie, I am open to travelling anywhere for a decent taco, but I always think that East London's food scene is so good, this usually means not travelling too far from my own door. 
    However, I went to Putney purely to visit El Patron - the much raved about Mexican kitchen and bar.

But I'm breaking tradition in this post, an ode to The Diner.

    So today I want to share with you another great find, Mas Q Menos. We were in a car driving through Holborn and Dejon pointed it out. We wanted to go to Soho so we carried on but in got out my little book of restaurants and scribbled the name down. Mas Q Menos translate as More than Less. After getting out of the car we walked down Wardour Street to see what would take our fancy. We stumbled across another branch of Mas Q Menos. Perfect.

    Collection 2000

    I have to admit, although I don't always wear make-up, I am a little bit of a beauty snob. I'm immediately drawn to the more expensive brands because I think that, they have to be good to warrant their prices. However, I have been let down by this assumption a fair few times.
    Then I realised I could be really missing a trick! Do the beauty bargains do the same job as those luxury cosmetics?
    The two beauty items that are necessities to me, is a damn good, gothic lipstick, and nail polish. My usual uses are the lipsticks from & Other Stories, and the classic Chanel red nail polish. 
    I went into Superdrug to see which was the most affordable brand going, and I stumbled across Collection 2000. So I invested in Lasting Colour Lipstick Shade 20 Plum Sensation and Seven Day Wear Nail Polish Dark Blue. For both items I only had to spend £4.98 from Superdrug. Now did I pay less for less quality, or did I pay less because I've been a mug for the last few years? Well...

    May Favourites

    Another month gone, and May really was a great one! 
    One half of Split the City was in London sampling Spa London, London Fields Fitness Studio and other great places, whilst our other half was off sunning herself in Bermuda, then strutting around New York City like a modern day Carrie Bradshaw.
    So here they are, our May favourites...

    3 Favourite Pinterest Boards

    Pinterest is a wonderful place. It has beauty, it has memes, it has really cool interior decor which is next to impossible to recreate... It's a pretty fun place to hang out. So here's a quick little post of my top 3 Pinterest boards!
    To start as off, a picture from one of my own boards...

    Holiday Essentials

    Hello there readers! I hope you are all doing great. As you are reading this post, I am lying on a beach with pink sand, clear blue water and the hot sun shining – sorry, not sorry. I have flown to Bermuda for a well-needed holiday with Dejon. I wanted to share with you my holiday essentials. I am generally a very organised person so when it comes to packing my bag for holiday, I like to be prepared and know where everything is. I think I got this from growing up, my mum, dad, sister and I used to make checklists and tick things off once we had put them in our suitcases. I didn’t do that this time, but thinking about it, I might do for my next holiday!?

    Split The City Meets London Fields Fitness Studio

    You can find London Fields Fitness Studio in one of the railway arches by London Fields Station, which is also just a short walk from Hackney Central overground. Take a look at their website and class timetable. As much as Hackney will always be Hackney, it does have a very 'up-and-coming' feel to the area now.
    Early one Sunday we had a go at Bootycamp.

    What's in my Bag?

    Hey there guys, Martha here. This is a quick little post, as a follow on from Nikki's fantastic 'What's my bag' which you can read in here.
    I'm going to talk you through all the pieces that are with me at all times, and are usually carted around in my Marc B handbag (other times it's a Muji backpack).

    Eelbrook | New Kings Road

    Hello there!

    Here is a lovely hidden gem I wish I knew about sooner. Eelbrook. This beautiful restaurant is in the heart of Fulham on the New Kings Road. I headed here one evening with my lovely friend Tom. We wanted to try somewhere new and we were super happy when we stumbled upon Eelbrook. For those of you that know Fulham Eelbrook is on corner of Eel Brook Common close to Parsons Green Station. They also have a heated outside area for those who enjoy al fresco dining and perfect all year round!
