- Fashion: Taking a leap
You might wander past The Great Frog on the end of Newburgh Street, but you may not know that the brand has actually been around for over 30 years. The patron saint of Rock & Roll jewellery, you’ll find a huge collection with everything from skull rings to nautical pendants and all the pieces in between.
A family run business, the brand have catered to a hold of celebrities as well as rock & roll royalty. Not only do they have their store in Soho but they also have stores in New York and Los Angeles. Mark made a purchase in the store after lusting through the shop window many times. This anchor pendant is made of sterling silver and features a tiny, detailed skull on its cross.
- Interiors: Into the light for a good cause
Out of the Dark is a charitable social enterprise that recycles, restores and revamps salvaged furniture as a means to train, educate and employ young people from disadvantaged backrounds. We’re avid fans of Out of the Dark and they are always a friendly addition to see at any interiors show.
Most recently, we spied that Out of the Dark had asked several interiors journalists and bloggers to create bespoke chairs, with colourful and vibrant fabrics at May Design Series. If its for a good cause and can create fun and funky designs, we can definitely get on board!
- Food: Little piggies
We love brunch. Who doesn’t? We heard about Blackfoot and have had it on the ‘to go’ list for a while. Sunday we woke up, bounced out of bed and trotted off to North London. Blackfoot is located in Islington and is the ideal place for a lazy bite to eat. Mark went for the buttermilk pancakes with melon and natural yogurt and David went for the Sobrasada on toast with coddled eggs (below) and it was delicious. On top of that they serve Monmouth coffee which went down a treat. We’re definitely planning on heading back for dinner soon…
- Places to go: Fools
If you have a spare couple of hundred pound (slight exaggeration) then why not head to the cinema? Last week we went to see Maleficent and would recommend. Beware that you will want to don a pair of horns afterwards…
- Just because: Post-apocalyptic dreams
Put that working week to bed and lose yourself in this official slow motion animated video for Berlin composer, Nils Frahm‘s “Re”.
