Remember our blog post about visiting SCOOP: A Wonderful Ice Cream World last Summer, where we learnt how to make parmesan cheese-flavoured ice cream, sniffed sorbet off wallpaper and inhaled a soft scoop? Well the brilliant and bonkers creators of that exhibition have a new plant-based project that's caught our attention.
London studio Bompas & Parr has designed the world's first vegan hotel suite, in the Hilton London Bankside hotel, where everything from the cushions and carpets, to the paper and pens, and of course food, has been designed and sourced according to vegan standards, and approved by The Vegan Society.

Once we've boxed up the baubles and finished the festive food, our homes can seem a little lacklustre post Christmas. But instead of feeling like there is a joy-shaped hole where your Christmas Tree once stood, embrace the blank canvas that January brings and use this time to make a change or two around the home that hits refresh and welcomes in the new year.
You don't need a tree to set the seasonal scene in your home this Christmas, we're planning to get creative with branches and ferns for an alternative look that brings all the traditional festive feels, with a bit of a wild Winter Wonderland twist.

It was World Mental Health Day on 10th October 2018, and it felt fitting to mark the event by going to see the new Yayoi Kusama exhibition 'The Moving Moment When I Went to the Universe' at Victoria Miro gallery in Wharf London.
Kusama once told The Observer: "Long ago, I decided that all I could do was express my thoughts through my art and that I would continue to do this until I died, even if no one was ever to see my work. Today, I never forget that my art works have moved millions of people all around the world."
