    Talking about the new look

    I removed the white padding around the page to give it a tighter look. Do you like it? Some of you, may have noticed the new logo, I’ve done away with the 960px by 240px banner and replaced it with a slim line 140px version. I’m going for the slicker look – hope its working out. I was mulling over this last ...

    Review: Da Aldo, Soho

    Scoop! For all ice cream lovers

    The sun came out last weekend after grim forecasts that it was suppose to be a wash-out. Life, often strange and unpredictable, always seeks to surprise doesnt it? Hot weather can mean only one thing after spending hours pounding the streets of London, ice cream. ...

    Review: Sakura, Oxford Circus
