Life is a Cabaret

Multi-tasking is where it’s at folks. With i-phones doubling up as all singing all dancing entertainment centres housing everything from our social diaries to music collections, it stands to sense that our choice of night life venue should also tick all the boxes that constitute a great evening. Located in the historic Old Truman Brewery on hip Brick Lane, The Brickhouse lies on the original site of the street's old music hall – a serendipitous home as the venue recaptures the spirit of the original 1930's supper clubs while remaining on the cutting edge of East London cool. The dynamic […]

Gisele Ganne

Freshly out of The Royal College of Art, Gisele Ganne is already dazzling the macrocosm of the jewellery world.  Her Oxymoronic style unites the macabre and the beautiful and in her first collection, her pieces are inspired by Victorian mourning jewellery.  Gisele explains,”Mourning is not just about dead people; it is also about dead relationships and decaying marriages and the divorce jewellery refers to old and contemporary wedding customs.”  Yet, before you’re put off by the sombre style, it is the paradox in Ganne’s work that makes it stand out.  Along with a slightly grave undertone, her jewellery is vibrant, abundant in bright colours and […]

500 Days of Summer

Does the anti-love story look set finally to surpass the fairy tale love story? With Twilight’s implausible success, followed by a Hollywood latch-on to anti heroes, this September Marc Webb is about to join the bandwagon with his 500 Days of Summer. Openly admitting ‘this is not a love story,’ the film centres around Tom Hansen (Joseph Gordon Levitt) and Summer Finn’s (Zooey Deschanel) off beat and tumultuous so-called relationship. While for Tom it is love at first sight when meeting Summer, she on the other hand, is a part-time misanthropist, who refuses to believe in relationships, boyfriends, disparaging that […]

Planes & Trains

Let’s face it, we’re pretty spoiled for choice with London’s eateries but unless you turn left when you board a flight, commandeer and entire train like the queen complete with private chef or make your annual pilgrimage to the West Country in a stretch limo, it’s unlikely you’ll get on-board sustenance to send a postcard home about. However, London’s finest are now venturing into territories previously unknown – airport terminals, stations and even motorway service stations – so there’s no excuse not to start you holiday in style and stave off the munchies before you depart or even en route.

Bikini ready

It is bikini time and as normal us girls, and a few of the boys, have been doing the old ‘bikini blitz regime’. This consists of us storming to the gym everyday, sweating blood on the cross trainer, beginning some stupid unrealistic cayenne-maple-dont-eat-anything-for-five-days diet (which results in us binging on chocolate at 3am on day 6) just to shed those few pounds before the dreaded unveiling of the bikini body that first day of the holiday. This is exhausting and normally very unsuccessful. Want something a little easier? Bliss has the answer. The world renown beauty spa that was founded […]

  Fancy spending some time on the beach but haven’t got the time to leave London? No worries, one nightclub has solved your problem. For the month of August one of London’s hottest venues Mahiki has decided to turn into a beach to celebrate the summer. Sand has been shipped in, literally, to create a beach in this A-list hangout. And because English sand or even European sand is just not quite good enough the 10 tonnes of sand has been imported from Hawaii. Paddling pools are rumoured to be making an appearance so if you happen to feel you […]
