Remembering: how amazing Kate Moss looked and how young we were when the late, great Corinne Day shot this iconic story for The Face’s Summer of Love issue. Memories!
Wishing: we were going to the Vogue Festival this weekend. There are still tickets available so if you’d like to see the likes of Victoria Beckham in coversation with Vogue Editor Alexandra Shulman, Natalie Massanet, Tamara Beckworth and Christopher Kane (to name but a few), book now.
Booking: tickets to see Othello at The National starring Adrian Lester and Rory Kinnear, and directed by the genius Nicholas Hytner. The reviews are amazing and new tickets have just gone on sale. But they won’t be there for long….
Heading: to the Garden Museum‘s annual plant fair where you can talk to experts from 20 nurseries, gain inspiration for your garden, buy plants and see the fantastic exhibition Floriculture: Flowers, Love and Money about the art of floristry. Just lovely. Sunday 28th April 10.30am – 5pm
Drinking: coffee at the London Coffee Festival (25-28 April, Old Truman Brewery, Brick Lane). If you are anything like either half of W&W, you probably need a shot of the black stuff to get going in the morning. And we could’t be keener to sample the best London’s ever-increasing independent coffee scene has to offer. Including – this excites us – the ‘Make decent coffee lounge’.
Coveting: A ‘Book a Month’ subscription to the wonderful Persephone Books, who reprint (in beautiful, dove-grey covered editions) neglected fiction and non-fiction by neglected women writers. Quite possibly the best present ever. (From £60 for six months.)
