London’s hidden gems: Covent Garden’s Seven Dials

Posted in Happenings by Nneoma Ulu on April 19, 2012

I’m a Londoner through and through and I genuinely love my city (overlooking London Transport, the weather and… London Transport. But sometimes, I take some of the amazing things London has to offer for granted. Covent Garden’s Seven Dials is one of those things. Home to everything from independent fashion boutiques to trusted faithfuls like Urban Outfitters and MAC, eateries including my favourite Hawksmoor (hello yummy steak) and also to The Cambridge Theatre currently showing the Olivier award winning musical Matilda (which I’m going to see next week). There is such a charm about the area, you can spend hours getting lost amongst all it has to offer.

If you fancy taking a trip to Seven Dials, you should consider checking it out on Thursday 26th April when over 120 stores in Seven Dials and neighbouring  St Martin’s Courtyard, including beauty and grooming salons, cafes, restaurants and bars will be offering an exclusive 20% off their collections, services and menus. You will  need a ‘Seven Dials and St Martin’s Courtyard Shopping Voucher’ which can be downloaded in advance of the event at Sevendials.co.uk along with a list of participating stores and venues. I’ll be taking a trip down there and cashing in on this post pay day treat!

Currently coveting… Nike x Liberty trainers

Posted in Collaborations by Nneoma Ulu on April 19, 2012

These trainers don’t really require many words. The high top Dunks with concealed wedge are from the latest Nike collection for Liberty and have been remixed with the Lagos Laurel Liberty Print, a 21st century take on Liberty’s trademark traditional paisley prints. The print first appeared in the 1940s but has been refreshed for Nike with the addition of a laurel wreath motif. Move over Isabel Marant, this is how us Brits do it.

I want these now.

Hello sunshine. I’m taking inspiration from (unlikely source) Jessica Alba – those sunglasses, the shiny jacket with pastel jenas and Alexander Wang boots are doing it for me. I want that jacket now.
