Weathering the storm: St Jude, mass hysteria and zombie apocalypses


Twister Storm

The Great British obsession with the weather reached new heights today. Predicted to be the worst storm since the ill-fated Michael Fish forecast of ’87, we locked our windows and doors, battened down the hatches and settled down for a night and morning of mad howling winds and Armageddon skies with the storm dubbed ‘St […]

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. Luckily, I have a few ‘industry’ friends who hook me up with freebies from time to time: club memberships, free fashion shows, miniature-sized food (somehow tastes better), goodie bags – that sort of thing.

On board with naval networking: Social Media Week


Social Media Week, London

Established for writers, bloggers, editors, videographers, designers, producers, PRs and any other content creator ‘meedya’ types, the CCC is basically just a place for people exactly like me.

It’s 9.57pm on Friday 27th July 2012, and we’re about to be watched by an expected […]

Wake me from my politi-coma


Boris Johnson

I guess you could say I’m politically apathetic. I care enough to watch the news, but not enough to vote. Yes, I’ll admit it: I don’t vote. I clearly remember the mid-90s ad campaign that zipped up the electorate’s mouths with the words: “If you don’t vote, you don’t have a say”. I disagree. My […]

A not-so public service announcement


Public Service Announcement

I’ve been massively absent on the old blogging front recently. Mainly because some bugger / robot hacked through some holes and decided to have a content-mushing party. All my link juice, likes, comments and SEO had effectively been wiped by these blog demons, leaving The Edible Editor looking more than a little worse for wear.
