Whilst details are thin on the ground, we do know the original cast are M.I.A, and newbies will be in place for this 2020-set, 10 episode revamp, as ordered by HBO Max. To be honest, Serena has about three kids now and Blair, well, the last we checked she’d dyed her hair blonde and married Adam Brody. So, what’s the verdict? Well, fans ain’t happy. Neither is The Telegraph who’ve commented that: “Gossip Girl was one of […]

Celebrity Tattoo Parlours That Are Ink-Credible

Tattoos are a rite of passage, an inky coming-of-age that’ll last a lot longer than the car you’re given when you pass your driving test at 17, the referendum result you vote for when you reach 18 or the STD you contract when you pass 16. They’re also incredibly fashionable. In an...

The Oblique Life: London’s Boundary Breaking Members’ Club

Double acts to one side, there are some pretty impressive trios on our planet. From Harry, Ron and Hermione who have achieved some pretty spellbinding stuff together – you know, fighting dementors, three-headed dogs and he who can’t be named – to Alvin And The Chipmunks, Charlie’s Angels and no forgetting The Powerpuff Girls!

Well, started by three brothers – and, as a result, another very […]

Have We Got Summer Terraces For You?

As much as we adore London’s cosy, traditional pubs seeped in history, there comes a time when an al-fresco Aperol spritz triumphs, which is why we’ve rounded up some of our favourite London terraces, for a classier night of inebriation. Summer, we’re ready! The Perrier-Jouët Champagne Terrace at Harrod’s Harrod’s, the quintessential British shop, if you’re a tourist at least (if you’re a local, Sainsbury’s is probably more quintessentially British), and now they’ve got in on the terrace action, launching The Perrier-Jouët Champagne Terrace. The outdoor terrace, set on the fourth floor of the iconic building, facing South West to maximise […]
