I WILL LOVE YOU TIL I DIE - VALENTINES SPECIAL !


It's hard to talk about Valentines day without feeling like it's all been done before.
As an alternative London couple your standard fare of flowers, chocolate, mushy movies and sloppy verse just isn't going to cut it. And as someone who's single and satisfied it's hard to know what you're supposed to be celebrating.
But we all have one thing in common, and that is that we're all London Lovers!
We've put together a list of five new ways to say I love you in London this Valentines day, and curated the perfect selection of edgy love themed prints from our collection.
Say it with a print!
1) I will love you till I die
A little intense, maybe. But what better way to show them you know them then choosing from our fantastic collection of music prints.
2) I love you, I know
Make them laugh with this classic cracker. Our film collection has more ways of saying I love you from the big screen!
3) Say it with food
As we all know, the way to a person's heart is through their stomach. So what better way to say you love them then getting them something for the kitchen. And no, we're not talking about a mircowave meal.
4) You are my universe
Take them on a romantic city break, or if your budget won't allow it, how about just a print to remind them that it doesn't matter where in the world you are, it's who you're with that's important.
5) We're all London Lovers
And whether you're buying this for a loved one or to treat yourself, remember that love extends beyond just that one special person in your life. Show some love for London!

MONEY-SAVING TIPS FOR DECORATING YOUR FIRST LONDON FLAT


Sure, graduation and your first job are huge steps towards adulthood, but what's the true sign that you've officially made it? When you get the keys to your very own apartment. Moving into your first (or second) place is a big deal, but we all know it can come at a high price. It is an urban jungle out there and It was a rude awakening the day we realized our Pinterest-fueled dreams didn't exactly fit our budget. But don't give up hope! Having an apartment that's chic and affordable is totally possible. The key is knowing the tricks and hacks that will help you save money without skimping on style. That way, you'll save your money for what's really important . . . the house warming party.
Buy Budget-Friendly Essentials
No adult should have to live with paper plates and sheets for curtains, but if you're worried about all the little things adding up, there are ways to get what you need while staying on budget. Shopping for affordable apartment essentials means that you can squeeze everything you need into your budget.
Add Something Old
Add character and save cash by buying your decor secondhand, a trick from former Bachelorette star Jillian Harris. Local thrift stores and flea markets (and don't forget Craigslist) are all full of fun and practical finds that won't cost a fortune.
Get Creative With Storage
Yes, your first apartment is probably pretty tiny, but use organization to your advantage. While you can keep big items tucked away in a box under the bed or in your closet, keep jewelry, makeup, and other small collectables stored out in the open.
Upgrading your wall art? Don't spend a fortune
Building up an art collection doesn't have to be crazy expensive. If you can't bare white walls, opt for affordable art.
Great news: We've got plenty of styles available from £20 on. Our London collection is looking amazing and we currently have a 10% off running on our For Students section until 31st October. So no excuse, get some art on those walls pronto! Check out was NEW here

Have your life and way to see the world been touched by the Art of Frida? Then this exhibition is one not to miss.
When we started to research our theme for the Women’s History Month event, we were moved by how many artists and friends the life and works of Frida Kahlo had reached. Therefore we decided to present the artworks to you in an exhibition showcasing the best that we have found.
Exhibiting works from all over the world, including artists Pam Glew, Villanaart, Orson Kartt, Cate Haplin, Studio Cockatoo, Lucy Schmidt, and our very own Jenny Camilleri, Chris Wharton, Tracie Andrews, Philip Sheffield, Fiona Watson, Kris Tate and London Fields Primary School and many more!

Considered one of the Mexico's greatest artist, Frida Kahlo was born on July 6, 1907 in Coyocoan, Mexico City, Mexico. She grew up in the family's home where was later referred as the Blue House or Casa Azul.Life experience is a common theme in Kahlo's approximately 200 paintings, sketches and drawings. Her physical and emotional pain are depicted starkly on canvases, as is her turbulent relationship with her husband, fellow artist Diego Rivera, who she married twice. Of her 143 paintings, 55 are self-portraits.
Frida Kahlo's fame has been growing after her death. Her Blue House was opened as a museum in the year of 1958. In 1970s the interest on her work and life are renewed due to the feminist movement, since she was viewed as an icon of female creativity.
