Post-it for the week-end: April 01-03, 2011

The week-end to come is a special one for me. Sunday will be filled with hugs, bunches of daisies, sweet words made with sparkly Crayolas, homemade cakes covered in colourful sugary stars. Sunday is my day, you see, mothers’ day.

How will you enjoy yours? Here are a few ideas:

- Enjoy the first splash of the season! The Brockwell Lido reopens and it’s free for the celebration day!

- Look for glimpses of Elisabeth Taylor’s life through the city

- Smile with those anecdotes

- Have a surreal break… or a contemporary art hunt

- Have tea at Lily Vanilli’s cake club -  it takes place in Hackney this time in a very wonderland atmosphere… Go for the champagne donuts!

- Circus are in -  whether they offer a contemporary show or host a nomad cinema

- Get your camera out – come and join me at this photowalk!

- Revisit King’s Rd rock’n’roll style in black & white pics…

- London puts its dancing shoes on…

- Gasp at this amazing collection of theater costumes

- Did you know the London Eye now has a beauty capsule?

- Selfridge’s and Oxfam open a top sale with clothes given by celebs – fancy wearing kate Moss’ dress?

- Sing a nursery rhyme with Eine…

- Discover a poetic sculpture made entirely of bird feathers

- Are you a mum? Then get a free cocktail at Hendrick’s on Sunday!

- Add a spoonful of a royal desert – specially created by the famous Heston Blumenthal.

- Get some fresh air!

Post-it for the week-end Nov 05-07, 2010

Hi everyone! Temperatures will be dropping over the week-end (15 today to… 08 on Sunday, brrrr). Only one solution: move, visit, rush from one fun place to another!

- Start your Xmas shopping (Think it is too early? Harrods holds their Xmas parade on Saturday and Regent st lights will be switched on next Tuesday!): the Spirit of Xmas fair is a real treasure chest.

- Or shop vintage @ Lily Allen’s shop or @ the Vintage Fair.

- Learn more about fashion through drawings

- How good are you @ hula-hooping?

- Was Titanic your favourite movie? Lucky you: an exhibition opens @ the O2 on Friday depicting life on board of the famour ship.

- Have a look at the Egyptian death exhibition @ the British Museum -  the illustrations of the Book of the dead are just amazing.

- Add a pinch of Dali

- It’s bonfire season, time for fireworks! Why not those @ the London Museum?

- Wake up early on Sunday to see this rally – cars pre-XXth century! Too tired? They will be on display on Regent St on Saturday, with the drivers wearing period costumes…

- Discover or re-discover Rob Ryan’s paper lace

- The Thames plays the contemporary card with artworks… on the water!

- Celebrate Diwali in a Hindu temple…

- A new concept: 3D graffitis

- Put your skating shoes on @ the Natural History Museum…

- This tree will not lose its leaves…

- Even frozen yogurts put on their winter tops…

- It is time to hunt Innocent Drinks’ knitted hat. Will you find those?

- Don’t forget to hum London on the way… or to see London with a different eye with this bubbly tube map!
