Forza Win: First Sundays with Flock & Herd

It's so long since I last wrote a blog post that you'd be forgiven for wondering if I've forgotten what one even is! Well I haven't, don't worry. And, what's more, I've written one! It's a very special one too, because a few Sundays ago Tom and I witnessed the beautiful union of two beings that were absolutely made for each other.

Secret Cinema presents Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back (no spoilers, promise!)

A short time ago, we visited a galaxy far far away when we took part in Secret Cinema's incredible production of Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back. I'm not going to say too much because the less you know the better (the key is in the name), but if you've also got a ticket/are thinking of getting one, I've got a few tips that will hopefully assist you on your journey to new worlds.

Street Feast at Dalston Yard

This is going to sound weird but, as much as I love street food markets, I also fear them. So it was with a mixture of excitement and trepidation that I recently went to Dalston Yard Street Feast...

The Line: London's new art walk

You can all stop panicking now people, I'm back!

Sooo I haven't blogged for quite a while, but I promise I have good reasons. I mentioned a few months ago that I was doing a diploma at the Institute of Art and Law. Well, we were assigned our final two essays at the beginning of April, to be handed in at the end of June. Naturally, I kept telling myself that I had looooaaaads of time, and then all of a sudden there was only a month left and I had to spend every spare minute frantically writing about the nationalisation of artefacts and whatnot. I put blogging, running and fun of any kind on hold.

And, err, once I'd handed them, for a while the last thing I wanted to do was write, so I've spent a few weeks just overdosing on life and making up for all FOMO. It's time to get back to it now though, and I thought it was only apt that I write about something arty such as The Line, London's first ever modern and contemporary art walk.

Teatime treats and time travel

We got up to a bit of travelling recently, both geographically and temporally, when we went for brunch at Blackbird Tea Rooms in Brighton.

The finer things

I've always thought that being an art dealer would be my ideal career. Imagine spending your days immersed in the world's creative history, seeking out beautiful paintings, prints and drawings and buying priceless objects with other people's money! Yep, that's the role for me. Unfortunately, I lack the background (went and studied law instead of history of art), the contacts (all the people I know and love can just about stretch to posters from Ikea) and, crucially, the massive stash of dollar required to get on the art dealership ladder.

I've been wondering if the world needs another review of Shackfuyu, since everyone and their dog has already blogged about it. But I had a bloody good time when I went there recently, so I'm writing about it anyway.
