  • The definitive guide on how to find your friends at a festival

    Whilst the early May summer sunshine brings brighter days, warmer evenings and lush green landscapes to our every day, we’re most excited about the start of festival season. At the first sight of sun and in true British fashion, we’re all ready to start donning our flip-flips, shorts and not nearly enough factor 50 (and sunglasses indoors, if you’re as cool as Bert from Accounting). Although we’re pretty well prepared at serving up some barbecued burgers and a jug of Pimms at a weekend garden party, we’re less prepared at surviving our first festival (or second, or third for that matter).

    If you’re just as baffled at the thought of packing your two-man tent down in to a public transport-sized bag, you’re not sure where to plug your straighteners in and you can’t work out how you’ll ever find your friends at an already sold out (and therefore packed) Glastonbury festival, you’ve come to the right place. If, however, you’re Bear Grylls, ex-military or a serial Glamper, you can probably just click off this page and get back to the great outdoors.

  • The best British brands you've never heard of (but should have)

    April welcomes a healthy amount of national festivity, in the form of both St. George’s Day – commemorating the life of the patron saint of England, whose cross forms the national flag – and the Queen’s birthday.

    In the midst of drinking more than a few cups of tea, we thought we’d join in on the action and talk about the best of British with you too. Rather than ramble on about Yorkshire Tea (did you know we include a free cuppa with all orders?) or Eastenders, we thought we’d talk about the British brands we’re loving at the moment (don’t worry, not us). Here’s our round-up of the best brands you might not have heard of, but probably should have.

  • 3 Things To Do this Easter Weekend in Brighton & Hove

    Born and based in Brighton, we’re more than a little fond of this seaside city we call home. From the pebble-scattered beach to the iconic seafront pier, narrow, boutique-lined lanes and cluster of cafes and restaurants that sprawl out on to the streets, Brighton is just about as good as it gets. (We might have a weird British Airways structure and a run-down aquarium to boot too though.)
