Posh Picnics: 15 Places Whacking Out The Wicker

Let’s face it, the jubilant thoughts surrounding a picnic after often quashed by the fact that you have to pack it yourself. The sandwiches always end up soggy, the ice always melts out of its packet – probably the reason the sandwiches get soggy – and a juice carton always bursts at some point or another. So, why not have a posh picnic? Let someone else do it for you (for the tune of £1000 if you’re Corrigan’s in Mayfair). And embrace the sunnier climes whilst they last! So, treat yourself! Pop some fizz open at one of London’s various […]

Veggies, Listen Up! There’s A New Bottomless Brunch In Town

When you get to spend one of the summer’s warmest Sunday afternoons (this year!) sipping on unlimited Bellini’s, you know you’re in for a good’un. Which is exactly how I spent last Sunday, piling up my plate with over 40 veggie dishes, and briskly knocking back as many Bellini’s as possible without a care in the world… And, oh boy, was it a treat! Thanks to tibits’ new bottomless brunch marking itself a permanent fixture on the weekend menu, Londoner’s too can dive head first into the Bellini’s and Prosecco, yippee!

My Milkshake Brings All The Vegans To The Yard

The creamy froth, the prized layer of foam that resides on the inside of the lid, the sweet, condensed goodness at the end of the cup. Lets’ face it, milkshakes really are the business but (clue’s in the name) they’re not usually ideal for vegans. But don’t worry, vegans out...

Where Can I Go To Play Tennis On Grass?

Lots of things make Wimbledon special. The strawberries and cream, Henman Hill or Murray Mount (delete depending how old you are), the fact that it’s in London, we could go on. But for the players, the  big distinction besides the prestige is that the courts are grass. Most of us only play tennis on hard courts, they’re cheap to build and maintain and they’re the most widely available to rank amateurs like me and, probably, you. Fewer of us have the opportunity to regularly play on grass courts, a type of tennis that’s a lot faster, less predictable and, let’s […]
