There’s something alien about stepping foot in a casino at 7pm. First of all being ID’d and bag searched by burly bouncers that had just stepped of the Lock Stock and Two Smoking Barrels movie set, or so it seemed. And, secondly, watching a sea of suits tossing down more money on tables than I’d made that day in the office, or seen in my life, come to think of it! The Hippodrome is the jaunt of the elite, who don’t cast a care towards black or red. It’s also the stomping ground of the Leicester Square massive, who’ve dabbled […]

Thanks to South Place Hotel, you’ll be able to tickle both yours and your pup’s tummies with the launch of their new luxury afternoon tea, er, doggie-style… Pawfect! South Place Hotel have a pawsome new partnership with accessories brand, Radley (the […]
Knock, knock! Who’s there? Only Europe’s first ever pop-up Shakespearean theatre arriving at Blenheim Palace! While nothing will beat how dreamy Leo looked as Romeo back in the film remake, we’re certainly excited to be transported back to the Elizabethan period at the Rose Theatre, even if for a few hours. We’ve got a pack of tissues ready ‘cos we’re gonna be weeping by the end of Romeo and Juliet! Love him or hate him, we’ve all been captivated in a three hour production of one of Shakespeare’s plays. Whether it was the Baz Luhrmann remake, or a dodgy school reenactment […]
Moving house is always a huge hassle; wrapping every single breakable in newspaper, taking the front door off its hinges to get the fridge-freezer through, forgetting which box you put the kettle in… But what if you weren’t moving to Islington, but to Mars? Okay, I live in Wandsworth so Upper Street and the red planet are basically the same thing to me, but a new exhibition from the Design Museum will be exploring the idea of actually leaving the earth’s orbit and heading into the inky blackness for a new life on Mars. And believe me, it’s peak Tim […]
Roaring ‘eck, can you believe there’s about to be a brand spanking new Lion King movie? The first single ‘Spirit’ by Bey has been released, and I for one have had it stuck in my head for longer than it took to create this remake! In fact, hysteria has spread like wild fire across the plains of London, what with the release date being TOMORROW! And the mane event was undeniably that whopping great premiere which took place in the city this week, and witnessed all sorts of random celebs having DMC’s, including Pharrell Williams chatting to Prince Harry about […]
‘Ah, but what about when the oil runs out?’ finger-wags the dining table diplomat, and the answer is, simply, Dubai. Rather than sitting on an ever diminishing supply of black gold, the emirate has invested wisely, making their little patch of sand an international transportation hub, a...
Oh hey weekend! We’re giving you the silent treatment because it’s been four days now and we still haven’t heard a word from you. And yet now here you are, promising all sorts of fun events out of the blue and, well, we just don’t have the time to pack them all in. That...
Gosh, we’ve had our fair share of hide-behind-the-sofa moments on this year’s Love Island haven’t we? From Anton giving his digits to the infamous shopkeeper, to Tom speaking far too truthfully in front of Maura before heading to the hideaway, this long hot summer has been quite...
‘Tea for two, and two for tea, just me for you and’ – HOW MUCH? ‘Tap water for two, and two for tap water…’ as the song didn’t quite go. As a nation we’re obsessed with tea, we consume it by the gallon, we even built an entire empire on it (well, that and subjugation of native peoples, exploitation of natural resources, overcoming malaria with gins and tonic and playing too much cricket – so all the good stuff). But how far would you go for the perfect cuppa? And do you have £500 spare? If so then order an […]
