Bill’s, Bill’s, Bill’s


Bill's, Bill's Restaurant

Nope, I haven’t just bastardised my blog with excessive punctuation. I’m not even referring to the first ever CD single I bought by Destiny’s Child (really), or the things that come through your letterbox (oops, just went a bit ‘accidental Partridge’ there).

Event envy: Sony Xperia Z launch party


Sony Xperia Z Launch Party

Jealous of the endless parties and events that the Made in Chelsea set seem to solely exist to decorate? Me too.

Ghost Stories


Ghost Stories

It must come as little surprise to anyone who’s seen any of the following that Jeremy Dyson, writer of Roald Dahl’s Twisted Tales at the Lyric and The League of Gentlemen, also co-wrote the West End thriller Ghost Stories (which also began life at the Lyric). His writing partner? Andy Nyman, director of Derren Brown’s […]
