With their vintage threads, vinyl records and penchant for independent coffee shops, hipsters are well known for their discerning tastes. But thanks to the global popularity of this exclusive subculture, hipsters no longer need to settle for a mainstream chain - they can now unpack their skinny jeans in the boutique hotel of their dreams.
The summer break, especially for university students, is a time to travel and to tick off a few things on your bucket list. Obviously though, as students, our budgets are tight and often in-disposable so an affordable holiday to Zante is usually the only obtainable option. But there is no harm in dreaming of many possibilities right?...
I'm not a Mum who treats sugar as the devil. I have a very sensible (well I think so) theory that by saying something's off limits you create all kinds of both negative and exciting connotations.

With the exception of the (pretty miserable) weather here in the UK, summer seems to be well and truly on it's way. We've got the festival season starting, the BBQ aisle in the supermarket stocked up and ready to go - and even the deck chairs in London parks are out there for people to enjoy (if you're brave enough in this weather).

London is staking its claim as the home of the UK music festival scene. The capital continues to attract the biggest names to play huge shows on star studded bills throughout the summer. From indoor arenas, to the cities many parks, London will be alive with the sound of music and after a day of partying it's only a tube ride back to a warm shower and a comfy bed.
No need to wait till your summer hols to indulge in a good read. On your staycation, you have the luxury of time to sit back, relax, and immerse yourself in a fab book. Whether that's a good old trashy novel, educational text or a self-help title, your staycation is your chance to lose yourself in a good book.
The sun has arrived, and a new light is cast into our homes, calling for a fresh look at our interiors. Similar to fashion, it's unlikely that many of us can get a whole new wardrobe each season, so it is all about ways of updating our spaces with small accessories - and perhaps a few big splurges along the way!
