Femmes de Virunga 55%

Original Beans have launched 4 new bars, including a rather special chocolate bar that not only has a rich flavour but also helps protect women’s groups in the Eastern Congo providing seedlings, training and a local radio program by women, for women. Each bar plants one tree in the buffer zone of Virunga National Park in Eastern Congo.

Anthropologie Spitalfields

My favourite homeware shop is opening a new branch in Spitalfields, with products tailored to this vibrant area of London. To celebrate the launch, students from Central St. Martins are running a pop up art shop on the 9th and 10th May.


Spring at Zuma

To celebrate the wonderful weather, Zuma has launched a new seasonal menu with zesty spring cocktails and wonderfully light dishes like miso marinated chicken with white truffle, pumpkin tempura and grilled courgettes with tarragon and miso sauce.


Vintage Salt at Selfridges

I can’t wait for this new summer rooftop residency to start on friday, with a dreamy Cornish seaside vibes, colourful beach huts and deckchairs to lounge in. The rose will be chilled, the G and T’s perfect and a light summer menu on hand for a long lazy evening. Click here for details.
