The Apprentice 2017 – Ross Fretten

Hello all! A slightly strange post from me today as although I mentioned the female casting made in Doctor Who, I’m not looking to cover TV in a big way on here. But then it is my blog so I can make special exceptions! And here is one of them…this year’s season of The Apprentice (UK).

Why? Why is this special and being posted about? Well, a long time friend of mine, Ross Fretten, is a candidate so I will be definitely tuning in every Wednesday and rooting for him!

Victoria Park Market – East London

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.

The 13th Doctor – Jodie Whittaker

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.

It’s a Saturday in London, we’re in Brick Lane so of course there’s something random afoot!

Barsmith Tiki Pop Up – Farringdon, London

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.
