101 London Date Ideas: The Ultimate Guide to Dating in the City

That time of year is fast approaching. By that time of year, I am alluding to V Day, the big Valentines. The one day of the year when everyone is expected to be on a date. If you’re not in a relationship / marriage / convent and haven’t started cuffing then you need to get on that ASAP in order to find the one (or someone) for V Day. Once they are well and truly cuffed, you then need to work out where you’re going to go. That’s where we come in. We have devised the ultimate guide of date […]

Fashion Power Tea Review

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. The afternoon tea begins with classic sandwich options like Cucumber & Greek yoghurt and Roast chicken & lemon butter, notably served on a ceramic cake stand that was designer themed shoes with a flat tray on top – our shoes were the classic black and white Chanel heels but I also spied […]

Our Guide To… Unusual Restaurants

La Bodega Negra If you’re feeling naughty and want to impress a date with your knowledge of underground London, this one’s for you. The gaudy neon sign outside reads ‘sex shop’ and you’re greeted at the door by a mannequin in a PVC gimp suit, casually lounging by a very adult toy cupboard. Descend into a heady Mexican underworld, a subterranean lair of tequila barrels, tacos and a weird deconstructed piano thing hanging off the wall. This is a place to see and be seen. Better make sure you’re there then (gimp suit optional). www.labodeganegra.com Dans Le Noir Dans le […]

Cinnamon Kitchen’s House of Holi

We all need a little bit more colour in our lives, there’s too much grey in London, from our suits, to the buildings to the sky.

The alps come to London

When you think of winter you think of white snow covered roof tops, children having snowball fights in the streets and roaring fires. When in reality if you’re lucky in London you might get some brown slush on the side of the road, you’re more likely to get a chunk of ice chucked at you and your central heating will probably pack in. Good thing then Home House is here to rectify that and transport you to an Alpine retreat without you having to even leave London, marvellous. A proper winter is coming to Zone 1 in the form of […]
