The Mummy Of All Shows Is Coming To London

Now this is pretty awesome stuff; King Tutankhamun’s treasures are travelling out of Egypt towards the end of this year to be showcased in London’s Saatchi Gallery for the final time. Yes, yes, he is real and is, in fact, the Egyptian pharaoh of the 18th dynasty (and the guy pictured most of the time you Google Egypt). The exhibition which will run from Saturday 2nd of November 2019, until 3rd of May 2020, will feature more than 150 original artefacts from Tutankhamun’s tomb, 60 of which will be taking their debut journey outside Egypt, which is Pharaoh enough… The Tutankhamun: Treasures of the Golden Pharaoh […]

Where To Stuff Your Dead Cat: Taxidermy Classes For Beginners

It can be difficult to know what to do with a loved one when they pop their clogs. You can have them frozen, in the hope that science may be able to revive them (a well-worn 1990s Hollywood trope, thinking Mel Gibson in Forever Young, or peak Stallone movie Demolition Man – Sly might have been best advised to go into cryogenesis himself at this point, it’s been downhill since). Alternatively you employ super-high pressure and turn them into precious stones, perfect for the diamond geezer in your life. Or you can go old-school, and have them stuffed, full-on Jeremy […]

Farzi Café Is The New Indian Spicing Up Our Lives

London’s latest Indian, Farzi Café, has the full ability to present first impressions of grandeur, over-priced food and flashiness but it is, in fact, quite the opposite. The Indian import has finally landed in London, with venues already present across India and Dubai. Sitting proudly amongst theatreland, next to the Only Fools And Horses Musical, it’s blatant that this restaurant has landed itself a real whopper of a spot in central London, turning heads with its golden hued signage amidst a sea of concrete buildings. The restaurant offers two levels of dining alongside opulent colours of luxurious gold and emerald […]

A Bunch Of Brunches

Brunch; it’s that time of day we rid ourselves of last night’s debauchery by downing Bloody Mary’s, and feast our appetites and Insta feeds on avocado on toast like it’s going out of fashion. Knowing that there’s a bunch of brunch addicts in every single one of us...

Better Sex And Where To Eat It

Before you drop the needle on the Ginuwine record, put the champagne on the rocks and spread the rose petals over the duvet, you’re going to need to grab a shucking knife and step over to the stove… because foreplay starts in the kitchen. Food as a route to sexual lust and pleasure is a...

5 Reasons To Stop Wasting Your Time With Energy Vampires

We are all surely guilty of having given too much of ourselves to another person in order to please them – and we may do this (or currently be doing this!) for a complicated variety of reasons. Saying no is something that many of us struggle with, and this is especially true when it comes to our relationships. It is a fact of life that we are occasionally going to form relationships with people who will turn out to not always have the best of intentions, or will not have a positive impact on our lives.
