Easter Trivia

"Better days will return,” Queen Elizabeth II said, echoing the beloved World War II-era song “We’ll Meet Again” that offered hope to many on the front lines. “We will be with our friends again; we will be with our families again; we will meet again.”

British Heritage, Peaky Blinder Style

The Roaring Twenties was a time when many people defied prohibition, indulged in new styles of dancing and dressing, and rejected many traditional moral standards. It was a period when society was returning to normal after the First World War and the general mood was positive. This decade was a time when fashion took a turn from the conservative, old styles into a new era of fashion.

100 years on and many of the most popular men’s dress styles today are still modeled from the fashion of that decade. Heavy wool dark coats, vintage tweed suits, newsboy flat caps, tweed waistcoats, and penny collar shirts are some of the timeless garments that are becoming super trendy in the UK thanks to the Peaky Blinders drama. It’s the British drama series based on a gangster family after the First World war lead by Tommy Shelby (Cillian Murphy) as they try to run the city with their corrupt activity. The programme hasn’t only taken over our TV screens though, it’s also influenced our fashion sense and inspired many themed bars and restaurants.

Summer has finally arrived and although the thermometer generally stays under 20 degrees with the habitual day of rain and clouds we can look forward to our summer holidays with anticipation.  When the sun comes out, there's no better place to be than London. The parks are full of sunbathers, picnickers and musicians and there's an optimistic buzz around the shops, galleries, theatres and sights as tourists and locals alike chill out and relax and make the most of the weather.

Leap into February

This year we celebrate a leap year with 29 days in February. It's the shortest month of the year and in my opinion, it's the most optimistic, signifying the start of spring with snow drops and daffodils starting to show their faces.

There are many events to celebrate this month but the most notorious has to be Valentine's Day on Sunday 14th February. It feels like we only have one day to show our loved ones how much we care, with a few loving words and the gift they've always dreamed of – no pressure then!
