- Fashion: On our watch
We spotted May 28th at this years Pulse London design exhibition and now can’t get them out of our heads. This watch brands specialise in wonderfully design led pieces mixing patterns, texture and colour and are fantastically affordable (average £25). Here are a selection of our favourites, but the great thing is, if there isn’t a design which ticks the boxes then the customisation tool is the place for you!
- Interiors: Walls of wanderlust
We’ve been fans of Surface View since we came across their flamingo wall mural. Their newest seasonal trend ‘Intrepid Explorer’ collection, ideal for Spring/Summer, certainly doesn’t disappoint. Globes and maps, serene landscapes, vintage travel designs as well as ship blue prints from the National Maritime Museum make up this fantastic collection.
There’s several that we have our eye on, one of which is this fairground shot from the John Hinde Archive, however it’s this Orient Line Cruise canvas from the P&O Heritage Collection which we’re coveting.
- Food: Getting down and dirty
We write this, tummies full and grins on our faces, on the tube coming back from a much needed post Eurovision meat infusion. Hidden behind Pizza East in Kentish Town is Dirty Burger, a cosy corrugated iron shack whose menu comprises of a few burger choices, fries and milkshakes. We went for the classic cheeseburger with a side of crinkle cut fries as well as onion fries to seal the deal (highly recommended!). Reasonably priced at a total of £11.50 each, it’s the ideal spot for a quick afternoon bite.
- Places to go: Trainspotting
We did Parkland Walk over the Winter months so with coats and hats on we set off from Finsbury Park station and made our way across the disused railway that used to run to Alexandra Palace. This is London’s longest Local Nature Reserve, although at only four and a half miles it’s not exactly a trek and is perfect for an afternoon stroll. This is on our to-do list for the Summer months, it’s a lovely tranquil walk and great for Londoners who are looking for some greenery (not very well demonstrated in the image below!).
- Just because: The Golden Age of social media
