Negril, Caribbean Food -Brixton

Wednesday 2 March 2011

It's Wednesday, which means we're over the hump. Time to think about the weekend, and what you might get up to. Westie gives you the low down on a wonderful Caribbean Cafe near Brixton. Ideal for that 'morning after' restoration or a catch up with friends.

The scents are original, bold and elegant; it’s one of the few houses to offer Eau de Parfums for men; and everything is made in their London laboratory. What’s more, the business...

The bandwagon for all things 60s and Mad Men-ish rolls on. But I have a clear conscience promoting such a look. I highlighted London based Adam of London and his bang on 60s Mod suits years before Mad Men was a twinkle in a writer's eye.

I’m a lover of check suits and have always had one in the wardrobe, but with the current trend for slim clean lines and bold checks you now have license to let...
