Highlighted this month in Elle Decoration’s hot 100 for 2012 and a Time Out top London attraction.
‘Held in the beautiful and very appropriate Christison building designed by Wates in the Sixties, this show is stuffed with all the recognisable classics of Scandinavian, American and British heroes of 20C design’.
I visited this show last year and bought, probably my best purchase…ever. A mid century sofa, which has pride of place in my house.

Venue : Dulwich College, London SE21 7LD

South East London Mumpreneurs Networking Group
SE London Mumpreneurs Network Group is a networking group for mumpreneurs who would like to get together on a regular monthly basis to support and inspire eachother, while finding new business. The next meeting will be held on Thursday 22nd March 2012 at Chapters in Blackheath between 10am -12noon. The group will run for two hours over coffee and cake.
Find out more here and get in contact with Clare Oliver to book a slot. I can personally vouch for these events as I attended one when I first opened the shop and was lucky enough to have the founder of Yoga Bugs as a guest speaker. Her determination and tips on how to succeed in business were invaluable!
Dizzy’s Diner – Michael Buble Tribute Night
Ok, so Dizzy’s Diner in Beckenham isn’t exactly local but it’s not too far and it just happens to be owned by my soon to be brother in law. Their tribute nights are fantastic! Coming up on 23rd March is the very popular Michael Buble Tribute night. Coupled with a three course meal and amazing atmosphere, what’s not to look forward to? Unless you don’t like Michael Buble that is, in which case you may like their regular motwown nights which are also brilliant. I’ve been to both and I have to say I had the best time! Contact them to book.
Venue : Dizzy’s Diner, 256-258 High Street, Beckenham, Kent BR3 1DZ
Price : £25.00 per head

Seasonal and organic food is used as much as possible with previous menus including custard creams, cupcakes, pizzas and baked vegetable risotto. Makes me feel hungry just writing this!
