Signed, sealed, delivered

On a sunny Saturday morning, we went to the estate agents to sort some admin out for the new flat. On the way we had to make a pit stop at Tooting Bec’s new addition Imperial Durbar for a much needed iced latte and pastry following a rather boozy Friday night with friends. The Imperial…

Kloutin’ about #100aires

Klout as currency? What a genius idea – and one which the guys over at Nokia Lumia adopted in order to help young creatives raise awareness of their art and ultimately “sell” their pieces.
