Today I was fabric shopping on Brick Lane and I noticed this scissor plaque on the pavement in front of 104 Brick Lane. It’s called a rondel and they were designed by Keith Bowler in 1995 to celebrate East London’s history.

 This is a great clothes shop in the heart of Soho – it’s packed with a lot of clothes, but the edit is so clear (and cool!) – it’s great to see a shop with such clear branding, because a lot of shops try to cater to a variety of customers and end up wateringContinue reading

When a bra campaign uses the phrase #banishthebounce for their twitter you just hope it’s true. I love going for a run but my sports bra was driving me insane. Ten minutes into my run I could feel the straps cutting into my shoulders. After complaining about my bad experience on twitter quite a fewContinue reading

Two ounces of wheat grass is the equivalent to four pounds of fresh green vegtables and contains a high concentration of vitamins, minerals and live enzymes.

I used to have two teddy bears when I was little. I loved them and they seemed to travel everywhere with me, to Paris, to Canada and back to London. My mother even crocheted matching dresses for me and my panda bear. It’s hard to say why, but we just love teddy bears, and nowContinue reading

Model Victoria Keon-Cohen @Profile PhotographyContinue reading
