About Me

Hi there,

Thanks for stopping by. My name is Lola, I love to eat and I am always looking forward to my next holiday!

I started The Reet Petite(TRP) in 2014 when I moved to London to start my first Job. I use my blog as an opportunity to eat really, and I chronicle my food and travel experiences because I believe food should be enjoyed and the world should be seen.

Now on to the question I get 9 times out of 10, “What does The Reet Petite mean?”

– The Reet Petite is the title of a song by Jackie Wilson. It describes “the sweetest girl you’re ever gonna meet”, which is completely true (haha, I kid)

The song doesn’t really have much to it but I fell in love with it the first time I heard it and the name has stuck. Music, much like food, is a very instrumental part of my life (pun fully intended).

I originally intended to be an anonymous blogger, but I slowly realised the importance of telling a story and more importantly that people connect with people. It also made for some AWKWARD holiday pictures trying to be anonymous, ha! I do like my privacy but there’s nothing wrong with sharing some personal stories once in a while I feel.

Thank you for stopping by the site today, I do hope you stay a while and see some of the things I have been up to. I also hope you’ll join TRP Brunch Club if you live in or pass by London. It would be great to see you at one of the brunch events which I host once a month for young professionals and creatives.
