Benetton Style: Oooo it’s getting a little chilly here

by Be-Blogger U.K. on: October 11th, 2012

It’s definitely starting to feel much colder with a hint of warm and humidity air, a warm coat and snuggly knitwear jumper are needed.  October and November are the most crucial time for shoppers and buyers to invest on outerwear for the Autumn Winter period.

Benetton has a fantastic range of coats and jackets to choose from, in different styles to suit your style and needs; vibrant colours, checks, quilt and downs, duffle, bomber and smart-work outerwear.  Be sure to check it out instore and online.

 Away from the heat and hanging out at Campania

by Be-Blogger U.K. on: October 9th, 2012

To commemorate the final few weeks of Summer, the heatwave we experienced back in August and the urge to drink and chill indoors were virtually impossible when you have burst crowds of people doing the same time.  Hanging out with friends whilst still sweating and fanning ourselves (a new workout for the arms), we had the opportunity to settle at a near deserted restaurant ‘Campania’ off Columbia Road, the beauty of this restaurant is its nostalgic interiors, old film polaroids stuck on the wall, rustic oak wooden tables and the signature Italian atmospheric feeling reminds me of my school trip to Florence.  A glass of fizzy orange juice and very late in the Sunday afternoon, the restaurant had to close, not enough moment to observe every single details of the lovely interior.  Enjoy the photos.

Campania, 95 Columbia Road, E2 7RG.

 Coloured doors

by Be-Blogger U.K. on: October 8th, 2012

Walking through to random parts of quiet neighbourhood areas of Notting Hill, Camden, Borough or Shoreditch, you hardly think once or twice about being admiring some-else’s front gardens and flash cars in front driveway.

This particular neighbourhood however, near the infamous Columbia Road Flower Market in East London has rows of 1940s houses with front doors painted variant shades from red to black, I used to call it the ‘colour palette neighbourhood’, very inspiring which attracts local photographers alike (like myself) or Pinterest pinners to add to their ideal mood boards.  It also reminds me of Benetton‘s colourful stairs in Oxford Circus.

 Eatery: Recipease

by Be-Blogger U.K. on: October 3rd, 2012

Another eatery post, I fear my stomach won’t hold much longer after visiting countless visits to food chain and independent cafes/restaurants, the joy of sampling food and snapping food and interiors often end up wanting more.

The other week whilst my friends were in town and rarely venture out to the West side of London, Notting Hill, totally forgotten the town still exist but less on my radar.  A close friend of mine suggested having coffee, tea and cakes at Jamie Oliver’s concept food and kitchen shop ”Recipease” opened this August, other branches include Brighton and Clapham Junction.

What’s so amazing about this concept development is that you can booked a cookery lesson at an open space and to eat after at a cost of £7o per head, pastry shop, buy herbs and other produce, food to go, cafe and restaurant all on two floors. It was fascinating to watch people eat whilst sipping coffee at the same time.  Wouldn’t it lovely if we had a Benetton cafe in store?

Recipease in Notting Hill: 92-94 Notting Hill Gate, W11 3QB.

Recipease in Clapham Junction: 48-50 St Johns Road, Battersea, SW11 1PR.

Recipease in Brighton: 72 Western Road, East Sussex, BN1 2HA.

by Be-Blogger U.K. on: October 2nd, 2012

London Fashion Week kicked off to a good start, catwalk shows and presentations being presented hour by hour or overlapped, the courtyard at the Somerset House venue was a perfect place for style hunters to snap fashionistas in interesting and bizarre attires, key statement accessories, catch up with friends and make new friends…of course with the perfect backdrop of the Regency architecture creates ‘the shot’.  Here are some of the snaps above.

 Unemployee of the year

by Be-Blogger U.K. on: September 24th, 2012

The economic crisis has aggravated the crisis in the world of work, leading to dramatic situations in many parts of the planet but especially in Europe.  Young people today are the hardest hit:  At present they are nearly 3 times more likely to be unemployed than their adult counterparts.

United Colors of Benetton launches Unemployee of the Year, a new global communication campaign to support non-employed youth.  To raise the awareness on youth non-employment issue, Benetton launches an online contest to sustain 100 projects, submitted by young non-employed people between the ages of 18 and 30, they are free to submit outlines of projects within the UNHATE Foundation mission that would create a social impact in their community.  The project is to be submitted to the UNHATE Foundation website and will be voted by the online community.

United Colors of Benetton wants to send a positive message of hope to celebrate the ability of young people to find new, intelligent and creative ways of facing the problem of unemployment and finding their own unique solution.

Today’s generation testifies that being non-employed doesn’t mean being useless, lazy or an anarchist.  It is a social problem; politic, recession, the rise of tuition fee and country’s debt problem.  A generation that is fighting for a less temporary future in a different way.  Contrary to common misconceptions about being young and non-employed, their smart, creative and inspiring working experiences do not compromise their dignity.

This communication project will run globally, in print and virally, through photographs and videos, using social media and an ironic approach to facilitate the involvement of young people who can help face the global problem of unemployment.

For further information, please visit www.unhatefoundation.org 

 

Please help the youth.

 Eatery: That amazing beef burger and chilli chips

by Be-Blogger U.K. on: September 19th, 2012

Don’t we just love a good lean, mean, meaty burger and chunky potato chips in the evening after a hard day at work?  Head over to Lucky Chip at The Sebright Arms pub located on Coate Street near Bethnal Green and Netil Market in London Fields, apparently they serve the best meaty and juicy burger in London, as a non-red-meat eater, a little bite won’t poison me.  I ordered a bacon and beef burger, topped with melted cheese, sliced pickle, crunchy lettuce and mustard-mayo sauce, clamped with a big softy bun, and a large chilli cheese potato chips – it tasted delicious, mouth-watering, the meat simply melted in my mouth gone within seconds like no other meat.  Oh go on, give it a try.

 Benetton: Vogue’s Fashion Night Out

by Be-Blogger U.K. on: September 17th, 2012

How was your fashion night out? Did you have a great time?  I heard it was buzzing, lively, busy and bigger than before.  At the flagship store on Oxford Circus, Benetton hosted a mini catwalk with models wearing the store’s latest Autumn Winter collection, there were yummy snacks gobbled up quickly by customers gone within seconds, sipping free drinks whilst being entertained by a live DJ set, shopping discount, and Queen of Hearts performed in front of customers and guests.  See you again next September!
