Sister Snog loves : Rainbows in the Penthouse

By |July 10th, 2015|

f you have a dream, make it so humungous if you say it out loud people will think you’re a little crazy. Particularly if it’s as big, bold and bodacious as buying a warehouse in an up-&-coming part of London, turning it into a museum that focuses on your passion, getting a South American architect to design it and inviting a Princess to be guest of honour at the opening ceremony. That’s exactly what Dame Zandra Rhodes did. In May 2003 HRH Princess Michael of Kent opened the Fashion and Textile Museum (FTM) which had been designed (with heaps of […]

Sister Snog loves : Bitter-sweet-sweet-spots

Cappuccino commerce
The love affair between coffee-&-commerce can be traced to way-back. Take Lloyd’s of London, which started life as a modest coffee shop and very quickly became the hub-&-hangout for merchants, ship owners and insurance brokers. Movers-&-groovers of the mercantile world. Trade was never off the menu and this little café off Tower Street developed into the world’s leading market in marine insurance.

Piped coffee
Interestingly the background sounds of cafés-&-coffee shops are so conducive to work, they are even being piped into offices. It seems they have just the right amount of noise-&-movement to inspire creativity. If you [...]

Sister Snog loves : Double Acts

By |May 15th, 2015|

Two to Tango
The world loves a good double act and partnerships enhance the good life. We’re conditioned to strive for successful, long-lasting marriages. Celebrating milestone anniversaries – silver, gold, diamonds & rubies. The same is true in the world of business. Life is said to be better with someone alongside you. And being in business with a partner is better than going at it alone. Nothing in business is more rewarding. Speaking from personal experience.

Two heads are better than one
Strong-solid-soulful partnerships make people happier than they’d be if they worked alone. There’s always someone else to experience [...]

Sister Snog loves : Hats off to Hilary Alexander

By |April 23rd, 2015|

The First Lady of Fashion
If Zandra Rhodes is the Doyenne of British fashion then Hilary Alexander is the Doyenne of British fashionistas. Born in New Zealand she’s made London her home for over 30 years. And journalism her career. She was the Fashion Director of The Telegraph until she hit ‘retirement age’. And announced her semi-retirement on Twitter on 17th February 2011 to her national-&-international #tweetmates-&-followers (and what a following!). Seems that the ‘Hilary Effect’ is contagious and over her amazing career she’s clearly gained utter respect from the people she’s worked closely with. And has been recognised [...]

Sister Snog Loves : Dame-&-doyenne of British Fashion

By |April 10th, 2015|

The Princess of Punk becomes a Dame
In 1977 she pioneered the pink and black jersey collection with holes and beaded safety pins that earned her the name of “Princess of Punk”. Imagine being instrumental in making safety pins a fashion statement. Her famous punk garments have been an example for other designers to follow. She has been designated as a “punk hero” by the Metropolitan Museum of Art in their recent (May, 2013) exhibition “PUNK: Chaos to Couture”. Quite an accolade for someone who’ll is in her sumptuous 70s. Not to mention her recent trip to Buckingham Palace [...]

Sister Snog loves : Polka dot power

By |March 20th, 2015|

Spot-on
Things get even more interesting when two dots become four, four become eight, eight become sixteen and sixteen become thirty two. That’s when dots become polka dots and a lone symbol turns into a sea of spots. The term Polka goes way back to the mid 19th century. It started life as a simple-yet-lively spin around the floor and became a dance craze that swept the world in a whirl. It was such a sensation that the word (which meant ‘Polish woman’ in Bohemian) became a buzz word. Spots hit the limelight and made it into the spotlight.

A fashionable sweet [...]

Sister Snog loves : All the colours of the rainbow

By |January 23rd, 2015|

Loomin’ fantastic!
Rainbows are one of Mother Nature’s wonders. They create a multi coloured riot. They also crop up again-&-again in the world of the savvy entrepreneur. Who’d have thought rubber bands could lead to a global phenomenon worth millions. ‘Rainbow Looms’ is the rags-to-riches story of the decade. A blockbuster starring Cheong Cheon. If neccesity is the mother of invention, his kids were the catalyst to the jackpot as today the ‘Loom band craze’ has gone crazy. Even celebrities including Kate Midleton & Pope Francis have been spotted wearing a loom bracelet in public.

Rainbow-a-logo!
Rainbows owe their beauty [...]
