The fairs are in full swing in London, The Olympia Fine Art and Antiques Fair opens on the 18th June and Masterpiece opens a few days later on the 24th. Like industrious worker bees everyone is madly working away.
We need a Mayor with a proven track record in tackling inequalities, so a child's life chances are not decided just by accident of birth.We need a mayor who can make sure that every child in our capital has every chance. That's why we need Tessa, and that's why I'm backing her.
One really interesting point that was raised was today's reliance of technology in the design community. I'm all for networks like Instagram and Pinterest and I can see the value and convenience, but there's something to be said for seeing things with our own eyes.
Well here's a shocker for you: your company looks sexist and I'm not using your app. Perhaps instead of spending your budget on splashing your offensively degrading posters all over the London transport lines you could use it on replacing your copywriters.
Ahead of their free entry gig at London's Southbank Centre this Friday, London Afrobeat Collective spill the beans on their latest release Food Chain.
We don't want the next generation to think our beloved city was made exclusively for travellers and rich investors. We need to ensure London's heritage is preserved. But let's embrace life in the suburbs and take the best of London with it.
Fighting against growing levels of precarity, unemployment, poverty and homelessness - in Spain and, contrary to what our government claims, in the UK - also requires us to reclaim what should belong to the state and its citizens, to us.
Ahmen's only offense is that she acted a bit carelessly in the quest to build her brand. The unforgiving coverage and backlash she's received since, I believe, has taken away from the real cause for concern here, which is news distributors and reporters believing that picking up tweets from journalists somehow absolves them from their own duty to double-check facts before running a story.
To all my fellow Londoners who are draining their phone battery at work today by opening and refreshing their weather app, I can safely (well, as safely as you can cross the road at Oxford Circus) say that the sun has got his hat on and he is (hopefully) coming out to stay this weekend.
My campaign is built on two platforms. Firstly, it is a grassroots campaign. My vision and policies are directly shaped by grassroots Labour members with added expert knowledge from specialists to make sure they are viable. Secondly, and related to this, it is built on the idea that London needs to be more affordable, more liveable and more sustainable. But what does that mean in practice?
Weirdly when I mention step drinking to anyone other than my band of reprobate friends, it's generally been frowned upon. But I say screw society! Keep your rammed pub garden benches at the merest hint of a heat wave. When the mercury hits its 20 plus height, you will find me, boyf in tow, swilling somewhere you can always get a seat...
In a city where millions are reported to be only one payday away from losing their homes, I don't believe criminalising homelessness is right. We need to convince Hackney Council to reconsider the terms of its PSPO and remove the references to rough sleeping from it.
The garden spanning the Thames in central London will act as a unique pedestrian pathway which places nature at the heart of the city. The bridge, clad with copper-nickel, is designed to look as if growing out of the river in two fluted piers which support the planted promenade.
The thing is with London finally getting some sun, is that most spas are all very inside-y. We wanted to enjoy the sun and not be kept in whilst still swimming in the heat. Unless you are prepared to go abroad, this is a big ask. Luckily, the spa we chose was perfect for those sunny days.
Allowing your kids screen time is a bit like formula feeding, or putting your kids in daycare. A very persuasive part of our culture practically forbids it. And if you ignore this advice your child will suffer emotionally from the impact, and probably grow up behind bars.
Despite London being home to thousands of millionaires, over a 100 billionaires and the business centre of Europe, poverty is a big problem here... with all the prosperity going on in our capital, almost 65,000 people are using food banks to survive.
