My name is Geraldine Tan, @littlebigbell. I’m a doctor, mother, and design blogger based in London, England. I love to photograph, style, and blog about all things colourful and bright. The photos I have included feature some of my favourite places to shop, eat, and relax in London.

@AlbionLondon: The Albion cafe in Shoreditch is a favourite for classic dishes like shepherd’s pie and fish pie. Their delicious bakery makes all their breads and cakes from scratch and on site. You can pop in to grab a takeaway coffee and pastry before going on one of the cool local graffiti walking tours.

Smug, @ifeelsmug. One of my favourite independent homewares store in North London. The collections on sale are beautifully curated, including numerous exclusive only to the shop collaborations with talented makers.

The breakfast club in Angel, North London @thebrekkyclub is my favourite place for brunch. Stacks of freshly made pancakes with berries, syrup, and sides of bacon and avocado.

Afternoon Sunday walks in the park of Primrose Hill with the family, is my way to unwind. I love photographing the colourful houses there for Instagram too.

Dirty Burger @dirtyburgerldn is part of the Soho group of restaurants, in various in London. This is the one in Shoreditch.They do the best cheeseburgers in town, along with red onion rings, skin-on fries, and milk shakes.

@presentandcorrect: You could spend a very long time browsing in this quirky cool stationery shop in Islington, North London. It stocks and sells a wonderfully curated collection of new and vintage office sundries from designers around the world.
