Here’s a bit of Fork My Life, all up in your face. In June (yes I know, I’m late) I had the pleasure of walking in the fashion show at the Rockabilly Rave, splendidly organised by Bettina Scarlett Presents. As well as taking part in the fashion show, I got to experience my first Rockabilly Rave weekender and I had a BALL!
Glory praise, be! A ‘farmers market’ has landed in Victoria Park!
Being a local to the area, I thought this was great – bop along every Sunday and pick up some produce but my, my I was so surprised when I visited! There is SO much more than just produce on offer. There was a band, tons of street food stands to grab lunch or brekkie while you’re there…donuts, cookies, cured meats… this market literally has it all if you’re after something edible.
I know, this isn’t a physical event…but it is an event for the WORLD!! Or maybe not, but if you’re a Doctor Who fan then yesterday will have been a big day for you, as the successor to Peter Capaldi’s Doctor was revealed. Unhelpfully timed as an announcement for after the men’s Wimbledon final (just give us a bloomin’ time on the clock not some mystical “oh when the tennis is done” malarky), Whovians were glued to their TVs anticipating the reveal.
I’d like to take this opportunity to promote one of my favourite urban artists, Camden based Pegasus. Fear not, non Londoners, he is frequently in LA and does travel around the world from time to time. This talented gentleman regularly produces brilliant street art based on public figures and it was a pleasure to go along to his gallery party last year near King’s Cross.
Welcome to the Koko Kanu Frequent Flyer’s Cocktail Club! Inspired by the era of jet-set travel, this Summer we have Koko Kanu inviting Londoners and travel fans on a delicious journey to 6 wonderous bars throughout July. If you aren’t sure who Koko Kanu are… well, they’re the UK’s leading white rum blended with coconut flavour (a nice 37.5%) so really you should know who these guys are. Nip down to your local supermarket and peruse their wares.
So what is this Frequent Flyer’s Cocktail Club? What does it all mean? Well keep on reading and you’ll find out!
It’s a Saturday in London, we’re in Brick Lane so of course there’s something random afoot! This week I saw from London on the Inside that there was a free giveaway, giving people the chance to win either a free Instant Ink printer or a free tattoo. I love a freebie, so headed down with companion Anna who happens to have a birthday that very same day! What a treat!
Good day to you all! Some of you may know that I’m a fan of 50s style, including Tiki fashion, so when I saw there was an exciting looking Tiki pop up at Barsmith in Farringdon it set my joy alarm off!
So what is it? Well Barsmith have decked out their establishment as a Tiki bar, with carved Tiki heads imported from the South Pacific, a bamboo bar set up, tropical flowers all over the place and a new Tiki styled menu. They’ve brought in some cocktails such as the classic Zombie and Navy Grog to name a couple to sip on while admiring the authentic décor.
Last weekend I was wandering with my pal Goldy Loxx in Covent Garden, on our way to get a Unicorn Freakshake, when we twigged a pretty shop window….Goldy is a Vans lover so we were drawn over and somehow I didn’t immediately register the glory that was in front of me. This glory was the Vans x Peanuts collection, beautifully displayed and it made me SWOON HARD. Good grief!
“Happy Christmas!” I said to my chap, as he unwrapped a witty card that told him I’d bought us two tickets to see David Tennant in Patrick Marber’s Don Juan of Soho. Admittedly, this was also a present for me, as David Tennant is one of our relationship celebrity loves and I’d timed it for the day after my 30th birthday – to soften the blow of aging somewhat.
A backdated post for you! I loved this so needed to feature it – sorry if you missed out and well done for catching it if you were ‘on it’ last year!
In 2016, Forbidden Planet and Sony Pictures UK teamed up for the launch of the 2016 Ghostbusters and transformed London’s Waterloo station with a fabulous ghostly, slimy, marshmallowy PR stunt.
