Late London: Sonic City

Late London: Sonic City

You’ll usually find me tucked away in a cocktail bar come Friday evening, or at least sat in front of a film whilst tucking into a Dominos. One particular Friday a few weeks ago however, we decided to try something a bit different. As a Sound Engineer I think it’s fair to say that Oliver is(…)

The House of Peroni returns this October

The House of Peroni returns this October

 The house is back for another stint in Holborn this October, and this time the team at Peroni are bringing modern Rome to Central London for a month of food, drink, design and film. If you’ve come across any of my previous posts covering The House you’ll know I’m a bit of a fan – from my first experience of(…)

Joining the hat brigade

Joining the hat brigade

I’ve never been a ‘hat person’. In the past I’ve always felt self-conscious with something balancing precariously on my head, and would look longingly at those who could pull off a fedora with ease.  When I spotted this burgundy bowler in Topshop I must have been feeling adventurous (or maybe it was the £7 price tag) because(…)

Pumped up kicks

Pumped up kicks

If there’s one thing that can cheer up a drab autumn day, it’s a spangly pair of silver kicks. Nothing better than seeing everything you pass reflected in your own footwear, hey? Even better if they cost you less than the price of a glass of pinot. In another outfit that may as well be sponsored by Primark, it’s all(…)

During the crossover, transitional dressing can be tricky to master. Is it too early to break out next season’s jacket? Do you sweat on the tube in your autumn gear(…)

Brooklyn Coffee

Living in East London, I appreciate how spoilt for choice I am when it comes to amazing places to eat and drink. Whether it’s breakfast burritos, gargantuan burgers or the big daddy of all rice paper rolls that takes your fancy, chances are there’s a pop up nearby serving just the thing you crave. In an area(…)

Workwear hero: the kimono

Workwear hero: the kimono

2014 has officially been the summer of the kimono. Silk, floral, tasselled, long-sleeved, short-sleeved, boho, sleek – you name it, there’s a high street store selling it. Not content with a single season of kimono-love, it also looks like they’re here to stay for AW14 too. I’ve spied a couple of brands working them into their(…)

The other side

The other side

I know, I know, it’s been six months. No writing, no photography – hell, not even a tweet plugging an old post. Does it help if I say that I missed it? That not writing and not posting made me feel like I was neglecting an old friend, an acute feeling in the back of my(…)
