Most inspiring artworks and collages we have recently seen. Do you know that feeling, when you see a piece of art work that you immediately fall in love with; it pulls you in, makes you smile or makes you stare at it for a while and you try to figure out why you like it so much but at the same time it makes you angry and jealous because you feel talentless and inadequate when you look at it? Well we get that feeling whenever we look at FROM BRAZIL, WITH LOVE‘s website. The collages and photographs are very strong, carefully put together but they also look loose and carelessly done, as if all those photographs came together by coincidence and created a whole new story within themselves. Have a look!
“You’re a young girl, you should be at home. You should be dressed up, going out with boys, going to school, you know, that kind of stuff” Taxi Driver (1976)

All collages copyright from Brazil, With Love and respective artists and photographers.
Abigail Reynolds might be seen as a contemporary artist, a modern painter, a graphic designer or even a story teller. It’s difficult to label things nowadays, but who cares about that. She lives in London, graduated from Goldsmiths College and Chelsea College of Art, took part in more than 30 exhibitions around the world. Above all, she has something new to offer. She takes the art of cutting paper to whole new levels, forming geometry, shape and inter-dimensionality. Mixing old and new imagery in a new perspective; such a simple idea but a highly interesting concept.
Check out other artists who also a similar technic: Bovey Lee, Peter Callesen, Chris Natrop.
East End Film Festival. From the 27th of April ( today!! ) until the 2nd of May
At the beginning, the festival was routed in its support for local filmmakers and provided a platform for their work; this remains as a key objective. In addition to the festival, LB Tower Hamlets has supported a large number of new short films through it’s Film Fund and many of these films have gone on to win awards at Festivals around the world.
You can see the full programme here
Since we’re both away and won’t be in London until Sunday we will only be able to attend the last day of the festival. Sad.
MOVIE MAYDAY, a FREE day of short and feature film screenings, live music, cinema trails, virtual tours, filmmaking competitions, quizzes and talks. From documentaries to animatons; music videos to experimental visuals. We’ll have the chance to watch the best local and international films.
We can’t wait! See you there folks!
Black Milk is an Australian company, founded by James Lillis. The brand is famous for it’s insane shiny leggings, but we also had a look at the swimwear collection. It’s not for everyone’s taste, but it’s new, it’s fresh, it’s creative. IT’S POP! that’s why it needs some attention.
Have you seen the popsicle print? This is what James Lillis said about that style: This was my attempt at doing ‘cute’. I thought I would use popsicles as my medium. The original name of this piece was ‘The Emotional Range of Popsicles’. And yes, pirate is an emotion.
Favourite: The Leg Bones. Very slimming.
Least favourite: The models and the photo shoot. The girls and the style of the brand don’t match. The designer should have chosen more down to earth models. Don’t you think?
It’s one of those days. One of those days when you wake up crying. When you need silence. When you’re sensitive about everything.When you walk in the streets alone and don’t know where you’re going. You think about your life in general, think about your friends, the one you love, the ‘moments’ in life. And then, you start questioning everything; anything. Your brain starts to hurt a bit because you think about so many things at the same time. And it makes you want silence a bit more.When you feel like watching old movies the whole day.When you turn off your phone and don’t want to talk to anyone because they just won’t understand your mood.
It’s a good day, a bit melancholic but still good. It makes you alive, inspired and most importantly, it makes you feel.
Three videos to watch and listen when you feel this way

I’m working on my new project. I need to make a TRIBUTE to something or someone. I chose to make a video about ‘all the things we can’t say’. The video needs to be a silent movie that lasts for 1 or 2 minutes.
Since we went to Brick Lane today I wanted to take the advantage and ask this question to a few people ( although the video won’t be up until May ) .
Seriously, why can’t we say what we really think to someone we care about ( or don’t care about ).
We envied people who said to us today ’Oh I say everything to everyone, I never hold it back!’
Life is too short. Time doesn’t stay still. So SAY WHAT YOU THINK and don’t regret later. ( we know…it’s easy to say! If you manage to do that, tell us how)
We both hate Sundays. But spending the day in Brick Lane has helped us like Sundays a bit more.
There you go!
Who said London weather is horrible? (okay probably everyone, including us) but the weather these days has been SO good. When it’s that hot it means we have to make the most of it.
Let’s enjoy our drinks in the clouds.
The Boundary Rooftop includes a large bar with seating arranged around an open fireplace, a 48-seat grill restaurant and a garden designed by Nicola Lesbirel. The rooftop is accessible by a direct lift and is served by its own kitchen. Panoramic views range 360 degrees from Canary Wharf, round to the City’s Gherkin and Barbican, and back again to the rooftops and spires of East London. The space is replete with a large sail-like canopy, heating, festoon lighting and Welsh blankets.
Location : Boundary Street runs parallel to Shoreditch High Street and is located at the corner of Redchurch Street and Boundary Street, behind the Tea Building. Bishopsgate in the City, Hoxton Square, Spitalfields, Brick Lane and Columbia Road are each approximately 3 minutes’ walk from Boundary.
Queen of Hoxton
Queen of Hoxton‘s roof garden, which holds up to 200 is fully decked, with a Rum shack serving up summer cocktails and Briska ‘slush-puppy’ cider, palm trees, giant bean-bags, festoon lights, plenty of seating, and the famous Queens BBQ ‘fit for a Royal banquet’.
For summer the bar will host a Rooftop Film Club, showing classic and cult films in the open air. Scheduled to launch on June 1st, watch this space for more details!
Location : 1-5 Curtain road , EC2A 3JX
Proud‘s new outdoor terraced café also means Proud guests can now escape indoor gig madness to relax and enjoy the sun with drinks and food served all day. Originally an abandoned and dilapidated market shop, the glass-walled space has been redecorated to do justice to the café’s epic views of the notorious Camden streets.
Location : The Horse Hospital ,Stables Market, Chalk Farm Road, Camden Town NW1 8AH
Our favorite? We’ll tell you once we go !
A couple of days ago we decided to post something on shoes, and everything went down hill from that moment on. We like shoes, as much as any girl does, but we’ve never really been a true addict. So it was quite innocent at the beginning; researching for key trends, looking at other blogs, having meaningless conversations on the subject. But then we went ‘shoe crazy’. Have you ever looked at websites for shoes? Have you? There are SO many of them! That’s why rather than pulling out the styles that we liked, we thought we’d pick some key trends and put the whole thing into a story. Have a look. You wouldn’t want to be in those brown shoes, while the whole world is wearing a tuxedo.
