Dear Loyal Readers
I really can’t stand how two-faced the weather in this country is. Each morning you wake up and you never know what to expect or even how to dress for it. Still, it makes for a great icebreaker. The weather seems to be the topic of interests for everyone and I reckon you should use that as your icebreaker when you decide to visit our lists of amazing bars that we have compiled for you in this issue.
If you are unable to go bar hoping this time because you have other pressing issues on your mind, such as ‘what am I going to do with my life now that I have finished my Fashion Degree…’, you can flip through and read our ‘Life Beyond The Glamorous Fashion Degree’ piece to see what your options are after your course. If you still have doubts we have some real-life advice from two experts who are already working in the industry, New York-based stylist duo Bryan Alexis and Miguel Carlos Martinez, sharing the pros and cons of their profession.
We take a more sombre tone as we discuss mental health in the music industry and what more can be done. Sticking with music and healing, we tell you why you should be splurging all your money on concerts. Ntangou Badila talks us through her art and which celebrity homes she would like to have her art pieces hanging up in. Finally, we take a look at what hard work, consistency and talent can produce.
I hope you enjoy this issue whether you are reading it in the sun or in a blizzard.
Until next time…
