So, I’ve FINALLY reached 500 followers on Twitter… I along with a good majority of the nation this evening watched the UK Leaders Debate on ITV. I thought I was pretty certain I would vote Labour in the May 2010 General Election… Well, it was a toss up between the Lib Dems and Labour to be fair. Anyway, after watching only 15 mins of the Leaders Debate I was convinced on the Lib Dems. Everything about Nick Cleggs demeanour and his policies was spot on. He’s honest and fair. He’s got his head screwed on; which makes for a breath of fresh air to be honest!
So, I said the below on Twitter.
AND BOOM! I then get the below…
@LibDems you get my vote! TWICE!
Who’re you going to vote for then? And what did you make of the big debate?
A little bit about the Briston Cardigan then! It’s a Cotton, Silk and Cashmere mix making it luxuriously soft and it’s really quite thin – so perfect for this Summer! I for one will be wearing one – despite it being a Menswear style, it’s actually a really nice piece. Which is a bonus really! ;o
SO, what do you think of the Briston Cardigan?
This morning, like all mornings, I turned the TV on in the bedroom to watch/listen to BBC Breakfast as I got ready for work. I thought I was listening to the local BBC news when I heard Sian mention Shoreditch… this however was the national news!
There had been a massive fire ripping through a restaurant, office block and residential building since 4:30am just beside us in Shoreditch.
As we left for work we could smell the smoke outside our apartment, then I looked down our street and saw the thick smoke where the Gherkin Building usually stands tall and proud. (NB: Not the best picture in the world, but I’ve highlighted the smoke in the below!)
We first became aware of the infamous Shepherdess Cafe when we bought the NFT Guide To London 2008. Before we moved down to London we made a list of all the places that were MUST SEE/MUST VISIT to eat, drink and be generally merry.
The Shepherdess Cafe was on our list of eateries. We’ve lived in London for two years now and as a matter of pure coincidence, when we moved last summer, we moved to the same street that the Shepherdess Cafe resides on. Strange, but true. We commute past the cafe every day on our routes to work; about 2 weeks ago we were at the traffic lights and saw Mr Jamie Oliver sat in the window of the cafe (the windows are a sight to behold in themselves!).
We’ve never had a chance to get down to the cafe. We’re too lazy to get up ‘early’ for work and it closes at 4pm. However, recently, I’m rubbish at sleeping in on a weekend… So when I woke up at 8am yesterday and couldn’t get back to sleep we decided to actually do something this weekend – “Let’s treat ourselves to the Shepherdess CAFFFF!”. And my god, what a treat!
I ate about a quarter – they give you the biggest portions EVER! All the above and a huge mug of (really nice!) tea came to £12. CHEAP CHEAP.
I have to say though, the sausages just weren’t to the standard of Rossi’s (RIP). But aside from that, it was well ‘lush’.
The Shepherdess Cafe is located on City Road, 5 mins from Old Street tube.

I absolutely love the new AllSaints Spring/Summer 2010 campaign graphics. The shoot is a mixture of Las Vegas desert and the recent GQ/AllSaints collaboration featuring Will Lewis and the dashingly handsome, Andre Van Noord. It all works so well and frankly, I CANNOT WAIT for summer!
I will keep updating this post as and when I receive product details for the shots…
Let me know what your thoughts are.
