I’m quite keen on rockabilly/vintage events, which you may have picked up from some of the style and events posts so far under the Fork My Life section of this site, so I was excited to see a new monthly event pop onto the scene in the form of The 2 Rs thanks to the Freddies of Pinewood team.
Ted’s Grooming Room – The Tommy ‘n’ Turkish
Orangina for Summer 2017
“Is Summer over?” is the question the UK has been asking since…well… February nearly! However we do still get the odd sunny day and Orangina has you sorted for when the sun is out, or if you want to imagine a bit of Summer is with you.
Their 2017 bottle range is super cute featuring two beach outfits for their bottles. I even have a bit of outfit envy from these babes. How is that possible? They’re bottles, ffs!
Pegasus’ Gods and Monsters Show – Kings Cross, London
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.
HP Instant Ink – Tattoo or Printer Giveaway – Brick Lane, London
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!
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.
Vans vs Peanuts Collection
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!
