With spring in the air, we're ready to explore what's new in the city! So, although it is tempting (and totally acceptable!) to spend your time in the nearest pub garden, we're here to provide a few more options that we think you'll love.
Taking inspiration from light, nature and fashion, Inès Longevial's paintings are a constant inspiration for us. Inès paints mostly humans, flowers and nudes, using a beautiful mixture of colours that we adore and perfectly embody our latest Spring collection! Whilst Inès has no current exhibitions planned in the UK, we're keeping up with her work via her beautiful Instagram page!
Forty Hall House and Vineyard
If a trip to an Italian vineyard unfortunately isn't on the agenda this year, we've luckily found this hidden gem in North London! Producing both still and sparkling English wines, the 10-acre organic vineyard is the first commercial vineyard operating in London since medieval times. You can also check out the wonderful 17th-century Forty Hall and beautiful landscape gardens. Chin-chin!
Hey! Cool Life Podcast & Emergency Contact Novel by Mary H.K Choi
Mary Choi first caught our eye when we fell in love with her book 'Emergency Contact.' Which is a smart and funny novel that's characters feel very relatable and real. Choi has now started a 15 minute podcast where she records herself every morning having an honest and unscripted conversation about things we all struggle with. And, as pretty much everyone knows: The struggle is real. Whilst it seems we are stuck in a toss between people talking about how to be as productive as possible whilst also ensuring we find ways to take better care of ourselves, Choi simply reminds us that we are all feeling the same pressure - we'd suggest giving this a listen on the way to work!
Regent's Park Open Air Theatre
Regents Park is always a spring go-to as the many trees and flowers within the park come to life! However, if you're looking for something else to really make the most of your weekend, we would highly recommend watching a performance of 'Our Town', which is a play that celebrates what it means to be human and the everyday things that bring us all together. Playing until 8th June, it feels all the more magical watching it whilst soaking up the sun!
As a thank you for all of your support we wanted to give you the opportunity to experience to see this play with the chance to win 2 FREE tickets. Interested? Click the GIF below for more information on how to enter!
Now we know we said we wouldn't mention a pub garden, but rooftop terraces are different, right!? We simply couldn't resist telling you about this buzzing warehouse style cocktail bar nuzzled away in the heart of Hackney! If the earthy aesthetics aren't already enough to get you and your pals down there, they also do exceptionally tasty, seasonal cocktails, that you can sip on the rooftop terrace whilst looking over the capitals skyline.
