You might dress like a fabulous diva but do you dine like one? The trendy hotel W London has launched a Fashion Power Tea in collaboration with London’s Design Museum for Women Fashion Power, an exhibition that celebrates female fashion as a form of self-expression through the ages.

A Secret Mexican Party…

When you think of Coyote Ugly, what probably comes to mind is a hot, scantily-clad Piper Parabo giving it her all dancing atop a bar, right? And when you think of Mexico, it’s all margaritas, mezcal and moustaches, yes? So if some (very wise) guy decided to combine the two that’d be pretty darn awesome, huh? Step forward Peyote Ugly. Feeling revitalised having spent a few weeks dancing around campfires, playing the banjo and generally soul-searching in the Chihuahuan Desert, Peyote Ugly is returning to Mayfair’s naughtiest Mexican joint on 24th February for a second instalment of tequila-fuelled mayhem. Sombreros […]

You heard us, the White Isle’s most exclusive party is jetting into the capital in time for LFW, the BAFTAs and the Brit Awards with an all-day extravaganza in the 1000-capacity Banking Hall, decked out by La Maison Des Artistes.

With that in mind, we have put together a list of our favourite celebrity […]

Pillow Cinema

During January it’s very tempting to stay in, to not surface from under the duvet and to devote all your spare time to Netflix, but what if there was another way? What if we told you, that you could get out, be sociable (well sort of) and still be as comfortable as if you were lying on your sofa?  Let us present the Pillow Cinema, brought to London by the same team as the Hot Tub Cinema, it takes place in Shoreditch Underground and as the name suggests it’s pretty darn cosy.  Snuggle down on a Fatboy bean bag which […]
