Saturday was International Women's Day and to mark the occasion a couple of ladies from RunDemCrew organised a run around landmarks of London. Muireann Carey-Campbell and Elle Hankinson devised this event for our own city but their idea went viral and inspired international running groups to do the same! Check out the Tumblr to see the feed of images from all 37 countries who took part across the globe!! Here are a few pics of our journey from Green Park via a safari of Blue plaque houses accredited to power ladies from the past ......... ending at original suffragette founder Emmeline Pankhurst's place in Holland Park.

Sunday 9th March: "Instructional Objects under the Silver Moonlight" by Russell Maurice at The Depot Clapton
Saturday, 8 March 2014
Now I'm back from Paris and straight into London life, loving all my favourite things here - such as accessories / home interior boutique Darkroom who regularly collaborate with artists on their window installations. The latest graphic style to grace their newly striped tile plinth is the work of set designer Gemma Tickle who has created these over-size angular balloon sculptures "POP!". They are props but also for sale at £300 each for houses that could make a good home for these colourful wonders of joy.
Show runs 5th-25th March 2014.
52 Lamb’s Conduit Street
On our last evening in Paris we joined Kim Howells (HUNGER MAG) to view the launch exhibition for Rankin's new book and collection of un-published works. Here are a few of the images in A Gallery and guest Diane Pernet who I had a mutual double "blogging me, blogging you" moment. Read an interview and watch an interview with Rankin on Diane's blog here and here.

Colette is always a first destination for me if I ever find myself in Paris. I love it for the vibe, smell, sounds, garms, gadgets and the exhibition space. The latest show in the gallery is new painted canvas works by “Pop Abstract Surrealist” Kenny Scharf and then a couple of site specific graffiti pieces, spray-painted directly onto the stores wall (outside and in). To 2nd the excitement of this legend made accessible, is the wearable equivalent in the form of a collaboration with Jeremy Scott................ YUM!!!!
Shop the collection here.
