I know what you’re thinking – MORE neon!? I’m like a magpie to anything neon, so any excuse to visit the Sprüth Magers gallery to support my housemate Lucy’s neon project. She’s on a mission to photograph every piece of neon in London, so feel free to help her out by sharing any neon that you’ve spotted with me in the comments or via twitter! I’d read about the Kosuth exhibition in Time Out and with...

Last February I was lucky enough to discover a world of neon tucked away in a warehouse in Walthamstow – God’s Own Junkyard. A year on and Lights Of Soho is celebrating 40 years of neon by the GOJ owner Chris Bracey (who sadly passed away in November 2014) and one of the largest collections of neon signs outside the US. I’m a bit late to the party on this one, sorry! The exhibition has...

On Thursday night I was invited to the private view of this year’s Moniker Art Fair and The Other Art Fair. After work I made my way to The Old Truman Brewery and it was buzzing – it was so busy! I couldn’t stay for long but what I did see was great and made me want to go back again at the weekend when I had more time (and space) to look. So with...

After exploring Platform on Wednesday evening, I decided to pop into another Clerkenwell Design Week venue to see what else was happening: I stumbled on this installation (also part of the festival) on the way to the Design Factory.. . Housed inside St John’s Gate, the Tile Mile is a collaboration between Turkish Ceramics and creatives russ + henshaw using tiles and mirrors to create an illusion: It was quite busy so a bit hard to get...

It’s been a whirlwind of a week so I’ve only just got around to posting about this, but on Sunday I was back at Somerset House for Pick Me Up 2014. It’s becoming a bit of a tradition now that Jack & I meet Emma & Alex to explore the creative work of illustrators, graphic designers and artists. Wearing a cat print top, would Pick Me Up 2014 score a purrrfect 10 in my eyes?: Before...

After falling in love with a vintage circus style N in Selfridges in December 2013, God’s Own Junkyard has had a place in my heart. I’ve been back to the Selfridges pop up shop and to Scream Gallery to see more of his work, but after seeing Nikki’s post about the warehouse in Walthamstow I decided I just HAD to go. So last weekend I googled the location and set off to find it with...

After a jam packed first week, week 2 seems to have flown by so quickly. At the weekend Ben & I went to IKEA. This was only the second time I’ve been (first time was back in July 2013) and the novelty still hasn’t worn off – does it ever? I can’t wait to have my own place so I can run around IKEA like a headless chicken and buy lots of cool stuff. It...
