Its Raining its Pouring…

So its been raining – not a lot to do when it is raining, or at least I think thats the popular assumption. Could be really boring and go to the Cinema, Ice skating or bowling, but I’ve done all that a thousand times already!! Personally I think everyone goes to Westfeild when it rains. I [...]

Fire & Knives: Issue 4.

One of the advantages of having a very interesting boss, is that you tend to find interesting things lying around the office/warehouse. One of those recent things was Issue 3 of Fire & Knives, a lovely food quarterly that began publication in November last year. Issue 4 is slated for imminent release, while I understand that [...]

N.E.R.D. Album Preview @ Present, Shoreditch.

Last night an eager crowd – kept cool and loose by the bartenders of 69 Colebrook Row - crammed into the men’s clothing store Present on Shoreditch High Street, to hear a preview of N.E.R.D.’s latest record. Pharrell was on-hand to introduce each track, but not until after we as an audience had been sternly [...]


I am SO going to the V&A Lates on the 27th August, Its Retro Hollywood Glamour! I was just tucking myself up for bedtime, and having a quick flick through the Royal Borough, and there it was staring at me in the ‘events section’ – Now I’m wide awake trying to decide which of my favourite [...]

Detroit Bar -Covent Garden

Firstly – this is an AMAZING BAR, I fell really bad for them that on the night I visited, the toilets were exploding, literally. As myself and Jules came down the awesome formed staircase, terracotta in colour made of some material I didnt quite reconise, the first thing we saw was a very unimpressed member [...]

What’s this?

Myself and my friend Marlena noticed these pictures on the way to Portobello Market the other day. They are on the wall of The Parkside Clinic, W11. It strikes me as really weird because the clinic has always specialised in dealing with children’s counselling and these do not look like kid’s pictures – even if [...]

Let them eat Cake!!

I can’t remember if I’ve ever told you about the Hummingbird Bakery before…. So forgive me if this is a repeat, but the place is worth mentioning a hundred times – and I’ve never been exposed to quite so much before! A good friend of mine has recently got engaged to her Boyfriend of TEN years, [...]

A little love…

Wow its a bit quiet around here isn’t it? I guess that’s what happens in a big massive City with big massive problems, changes and responsibilities. Things get left till later, re-prioritised and eventually forgotten. :C Poor Metroblogging London. We – I forgot about you. Im sorry. I was supposed to look after you, [...]

Hamilton Gallery

ne of the more cool things about studying Architecture, is the constant demand to visit spaces in and around Central London, as well as exhibitions galleries and talks. For our latest project, we are using the Hamilton Gallery in Carlos Place. Currently showing ‘Something for Everyone’ a group exhibition of unseen work at the Gallery (ending [...]

NYE Sorted?

“Seductive Alchemy is back with another NYE party! Happy Noir Eve is a hark back to the old Victorian era, where Zeppelins hover across the London Skyline, and clockwork servants scuttle around in the basement.” This is another one of our concept events, and we’ve got an amazing line-up: Richard Stark – Opera singer Andrew Hubbard -Violinist Steph West [...]

End of the Month Line Up

Sorry for the Silence, I went back the Middlesex in September and its been a bit of a haul to get things bak on track. Of course getting on track has meant in terms of blogging – I’ve managed to keep up my social responsibilities (!) just not told anyone what’s happening! So what happening this [...]
