Back when I lived in Edinburgh, George Street was the boutique bar laden street to be seen on. And, sitting gracefully amongst its expanse was the gorgeous Eden Locke; a place where pastel colours boomed out amongst Scandi-style interiors. I was interviewing the adorable Amy Bell, or The Little Magpie to those who peruse her contagiously cool Instagram. We sat on wicker seats with coffee heating up our hands and traversed all sorts of topics, from her various upcoming press trips to exotic places and her wickedly beautiful fashion sense. At that moment, I fell totally in love with aparthotel […]
This dreary weather is becoming a bore. We’re itching to crack out the maxi-dresses, sandals and down a few cocktails without having the fear of a potential downpour at any moment. Alas, we’ve found somewhere that’s guaranteed to bring a splash of fun to our British summer and that’s the new botanical glasshouse opening at Searcys at The Gherkin. From July 15th, you can be immersed in this new natural haven. Decked out with exotic plants and flowers, The Glasshouse will become an oasis of greenery – despite being at the top of one of London’s most iconic skyscrapers. Created […]
Soho could have easily been named Tally Ho! The name Soho was apparently coined as it was the hunting cry of Duke of Monmouth, rather than the more common ‘tally ho’. We can’t decide which would have been better, but in any case ‘tally ho!’ to all these restaurant...

Jer’making me crazy! Let’s face it, nothing beats a recipe that’s been tried, tested and passed down from generation to generation, and your mama’s ol’ jerk marinade is one of those.

Sports fans, listen up! If there’s one place that sums up summer sport it’s not the crease at Lord’s, it’s not the goalmouth at Wembley or Centre Court at Wimbledon, it’s Shangri-La Hotel, At The Shard.

If you’re looking for the ultimate gift for a sports fan, look no further. In one stay at the iconic hotel you can bag Wimbledon Centre Court Wimbledon […]
Airline food is the worst, it really is. If you’re sat in economy or economy plus then you might as well be eating a 1970 microwave meal. Well not on Emirates, or at least, not on the Emirates Air Line. London’s most bizarre mode of transport, the cable car aimlessly taking you to where the Olympics once happened, has teamed up with one of our favourite restaurants, Jimmy Garcia’s to bring you ‘sky high dining’ (totally not sky high, but still a couple hundred feet in the air). Launching tomorrow, Jimmy Garcia’s Sky High Dining really puts the UP in pop-up […]
At school you have the sporty kids who play football, netball, basketball, tennis, and you have the non sporty ones who enjoy watching from the sidelines, dodging the ball. But by lunchtime, this all changed. Every kid on the playing field ran riot in the good ol’ game of tag. There’s now the chance to relive your childhood days by competing in a game of World Chase Tag and us lucky Londoners will be amongst the first non-pros globally to have a shot at testing the course for free. If only we knew you could plat tag competitively, right? Well, World Chase […]
