STEP LIGHTS AND BOLTS


I recently posted this on my Instagram asking who knew about this Bonnie and Clyde team? I've never seen this collaboration done before on a staircase, maybe I have but I've never noticed until now. As I left the basement toilets, I had to snap these step lights and the industrial feel over head skirting  all stained and finished alongside the wooden banister in similar shades of ebony to meet the warm tones you are usually greeted with in your local Nandos. Different, but it works!

Location: Nandos, Spitalfields.

THROWBACK TRACK 05 - 'HIGH' BY LIGHTHOUSE FAMILY


I'm back with a Tuesday Throwback Track!

I heard this on the radio recently and it immediately took me back to the yesteryears of the late 90's. I remember every song by Lighthouse Family being so uplifting and just easy listening (lifted, ocean drive, you name it!). I honestly cannot believe this was released 20 years ago. Where are Lighthouse Family today?

Enjoy this blast from the past!



Enjoy Tuesday's Throwback Track #5

Band: Lighthouse Family
Song: High
Year:1997

AUGUST '17 GAME CHANGERS


How are we into the month of September already? We are the first few days into a new month, better late than never – here are last month’s game changers.


1.     Post Truth by Matthew d’Ancona

I started reading this book near the end of August therefore I am still reading it. British journalist Matthew d’Ancona analyses the current era we live in which he refers to as the ‘post truth era.’ He focuses on how most of today’s news worthy subject matters is heavily based on feelings rather than facts. Interesting read so far.

2.     Earrings by Espirit Afrik

Everyone has a forgotten buy right? I bought these earrings at a fair in Dakar, Senegal last year. But I only re-discovered them a couple of days ago. I love all the techniques used to create this gem. Check out her Facebook page.

3.     Glow by Topshop

This little pot here is the bomb! – and I’m not even a make up fanatic! I love how you can rub the slightest bit of glow on your eyelids or cheekbones as a highlight and it does exactly that. No false advertisement here! I prefer to use it as eye shadow.
