The Greatness of Rugs

The Greatness of Rugs

I live in rented accommodation, which means I absolutely begrudge paying money on doing up my house properly, as in, with new carpets and wallpaper etcetera. I don’t see the point as I could be kicked out at any time (not that I’m admitting to be the Tenant from Hell or anything!), and I can’t…

Ski special: Snow patrol

Party on: Verbier Attention all party people! This season, just like last, you need to get yourself down to Verbier. Not only has the resort gone and got itself a stonking new W hotel (which promises to be fun central), it has also redirected the main piste to come out on the newly created Place…

Glam on the Run

So, party make-up. I’m assuming the partying is going to happen straight from work and that most people don’t have time to go home to redo their face first.

Calvin’s Pocket Rocket

Do you own anything by Calvin Klein? If there isn’t a 1990s slip dress or a pair of trousers from your first big job interview hanging in your wardrobe, chances are you’ve spritzed your neck with CK One, or at the very least pulled down a pair of Calvin boxers. Rare is the First World…

Inside Hair: Rock It

Inside Hair: Rock It

I was doing hair backstage at the Mercury awards recently when Jake Bugg rolled in. “Do you want your hair doing?” I asked him. “Nah,” he said, running his fingers through his scruffy do. Bugg knows that it’s not rock’n’roll to have hair that looks too done, and that goes for the girls too. Haim…

Slow-motion wedding booth is the new hotness!

Offbeat newlyweds, Adrienne and Chris, had a kick-ass wedding in Los Angeles. They also added a kick-ass twist to everyone’s favorite photo booth… by making it a slow motion booth. Or as booth operators (and Offbeat Vendors) The Adventures Of call it, “the SlowMo Booth.” Check it out all the glitter bombing, goofy faces, and slow-motion wedding joy…
