  1. ........Unusual shopping events!

    Hard to believe we can take a day off from Nude towers at the moment what with all our lovely customer orders but when we heard about Circus at the tramshed in shoreditch we couldn't resist!  An eclectic mix of fashion, jewellery, art, taxidermy etc all under one roof and each styled with their own concept stall made for an alternative Christmas shopping event.  

    Boring christmas gifts no more - lampshades made from jewellery, smoked ice cream and pretty little dead things - what more do you need!  We enjoyed the steam session with Fridja - boycott ironing - steaming is the way forward!  Also very impressed with Noemi Klein jewellery - I want every piece!  Managed to pick up some very unusual christmas gifts from taxidermist Polly Morgan whose work breathes life back into the animals she uses by placing them in situations you wouldn't normally find them in - we loved the tea cups, not for the faint hearted though!!!! 

    Our visit - which lasted a few hours - was topped off by visiting the Lily Vanilli cafe upstairs, mulled cider and red velvet cake - defintely worth dropping in for.

  2. .....Pop-up bars!

    Here today, gone tomorrow, pop-up bars are taking over.  Tired of going 'where everybody knows your name?'  Each pop up bar will open for a number of weeks and disappear as though it never exsisted.  Usually sporting fantastic interiors, beautiful people and unusual entertainment these bars make nipping out for a quick drink an exciting, never to be repeated experience!

    We sampled our own glamorous pop-up experience on Saturday evening at Cointreau Prive hosted at Piccadilly Circus and styled by Dita Von Teese.  Themed as a 1920's speak easy bar there were a number of private salons styled on Dita's home in LA, comfortable but luxurious loungers, lots of velvetine coverings and some of Dita's prize posessions in cabinets displayed around the bar.  A small wooden stage is the place for fantastic entertainment and the cocktails on offer were just as devine as the surroundings - we recommend the Cointreau Teese!

    Open for two more weeks, guest list only - just register online put on your flapper dress and enjoy!
