• Fashion: time to wrap up warm

“It’s a little chilly isn’t it?”, a common comment we’ve been hearing all week. To us, however, it means it’s new Winter coat time – yippee!

Mark has had his beady eye on this little Dr Denim pea coat navy number from Urban Outfitters for a while now and now that the temperature has dropped it’s the ideal opportunity to spend some pennies!


  • Interiors: art attack

We’ve mentioned previously how we have quite a few shelves and walls in our house which are in need of some fun pieces of artwork and where better to find something not only good but also at a reasonable price than The Affordable Art Fair.

The fair started yesterday in Battersea and continues until Sunday and is a great place to discover art by a host of artists all in the same place. Prices of art are between £100 and £5,000 – potentially still a little out of our price range but this isn’t a snobby art fair, browsing is welcomed too (phew!).

Tickets can be purchased here.

  • Food: all about the bass…

This recipe came highly recommended by one of David’s colleagues and when we knew we had a friend staying we thought what’s more perfect then a roast chicken?

This is so easy to do, although if like Mark your a bit squeamish when it comes to handling a chicken then best to get another pair of hands on board.

First, mix up some spices with some oil to make a paste (hotter the better we say), next rub it EVERYWHERE, finally grab yourself a can of lager and pop it up the bum(!), leave it in the oven to cook and ~ hey presto ~ you have dinner.

Find a much more detailed recipe here and if you end up cooking this then let us know how it goes by tweeting us!

  • Places to go: Who Are You?

You may have seen the first episode for Grayson Perry’s new TV documentry, Who Are You? on Channel 4. It’s a look in to who we feel we are and how we feel we’re perceived. Perry spends time with a range of individuals looking in to their identity and from there creates a portrait, whether statue, tapestry or illustration, of his impression of that person. These works are going to be on display at the National Portrait Gallery for all to see and to sit alongside the 3-part documentary.

The exhibition starts tomorrow (Saturday 25th Oct) and continues until March next year – details can be found here.
