The Breakdown of an Athlete: Not Dunn Yet

The Breakdown of an Athlete: Not Dunn Yet

The Simon you see online is the Simon I want you to see, may it be my pride or the influence of social media, but it’s not always as it seems. Life is a series of ups and downs, just remember - there’s always light at the end of the...

Rimini: Discovering another side of Italy

Rimini: Discovering another side of Italy

For most, Italy is pizza, pasta and rustic buildings that make for amazing selfie backdrops. At least that’s what I was going there for… Covering 301,338 km², it undoubtedly offers a number of hot spots we know, visit and love. However, with that being said, I was encouraged to ditch...

Man of the summer – Becoming the man

If any man (straight or gay) tells you that he doesn’t notice how other men look, he is lying. Don’t believe me? Just sit on any busy London street and people watch for 30 minutes. You’ll soon see what I mean. I’m not saying that men are checking out other...

Barefoot and fancy free in Soho’s House of Sole

Barefoot and fancy free in Soho’s House of Sole

A mid-week evening might usually be spent in the gym or dealing with life admin, but last Tuesday was refreshingly not as mundane as the norm. Celebs and wine lovers hit the bright lights of Soho, London, to go on a journey of self-discovery and bare their ‘soles.’ After 82...

Film Review:  Genius, Picasso

Film Review:  Genius, Picasso

“I’d rather starve than paint inside the box.” It’s rare that you get a chance to see such an amazing collection of art at the same time as watching a genius work, but last night in the Tate Modern, that happened. Pablo Picasso needs no introduction, his work has been...

The best headphones currently on the market

The best headphones currently on the market

We are a nation that have become permanently attached to our phones. Scrolling through Instagram, swiping on Tinder and listening to the much needed escapism of music. Barely surviving our dreary morning commutes in this ever changing Great British Weather, we constantly turn to the comfort of our handheld technology...

FAST LIVE: Review

FAST LIVE: Review

One submarine, a large truck and eight well-oiled cars crammed onto a small stage speeding at 100mph and barely missing each other, what could possibly go wrong? It’s a franchise that no one ever expected to last more than one movie and a self-made family that suffered a huge public...

Vegas: the perfect four night getaway

Vegas: the perfect four night getaway

It’s said to be a place where you can do whatever you want, no matter what time of day it is. A city of dreams sandwiched amongst the scorching, endless Nevada desert. But what is the ‘big-pull’ for a place that claims to ‘have it all?’ If someone asked you...

Three bags to make your co-workers coo

Three bags to make your co-workers coo

When I was younger the only thing I ever looked forward to about going back to school, was the fact that I’d have a brand new backpack across my scrawny shoulders. Every September a new bag was purchased and a huge grin beamed across my ‘innocent’ face. Alas, those care-free...

OnBlackheath Festival returns to London this Saturday

OnBlackheath Festival returns to London this Saturday

Any seasoned festival goer will know the yearly schedules like the back of their hand. Dusting off their well-worn wellies for every major festival that hits the UK and worldwide alike. But is your diary set for the 9th September 2017? OnBlackheath popped its festival cherry in 2014, and now...

The Kyle Jenner effect: Give her a break

The Kyle Jenner effect: Give her a break

Who influences you? Of course the obvious answer would be our parents, people in power and a handful of celebs that we follow on social media. But the reality is, we are influenced daily, hourly and most of the time, without even realising it. Adverts, music, colours and people in...

Is the date dead?

Is the date dead?

In a world of app dating and social media stalking, it’s hard to remember a time when we didn’t already know TMI about our date. We’ve taken window shopping to the extreme and along with it, we’ve thrown out the traditional date in favour of something far seedier. We know...

Britain’s distressing summer dress code

This season’s must have trainers

Like kids in a candy store, here at The London Economic HQ we’ve been let loose on some of this seasons must have trainers. And they are pretty spectacular. From the bold to the plain, they have our wallets twitching and the soles of our feet dancing happily. And since...

Moving to London: What you need to know

Moving to London: What you need to know

A city commuter will inevitably moan about travelling an hour to work. Complaining about navigating the tube routes, London bikers or having to dare the sweaty buses in the summer heat. And the ultimate two words you must never utter to a commuter are, “tube strike.” But no city commuter...

How I became the king of Lyon

How I became the king of Lyon

I'm about to tell you something that you 100 per cent already know, but probably didn't really realise or put much thought into. There is more than one city in France. Now I'm not going to tell you to stop visiting Paris, but maybe it's time to take a little...

Eat, Gay, Love – Adventures in Tuscany

Eat, Gay, Love – Adventures in Tuscany

There is something rather romanticised about the notion of travelling alone. So when I was invited to a wedding in Florence, I excitedly booked my flight and extended my trip for some solo ‘me’ time. If Julia Roberts could do it, then why the hell couldn’t I? But as the...

A New Dawn, A New Day, A New Face

A New Dawn, A New Day, A New Face

It's estimated that we touch our face around 3000 times a day. With that staggering figure in mind, it's no wonder that the first thing we obsess about is any irregularity in our boat race: blemish, bags, dry skin and those dreaded wrinkles. While our dirty mitts could be the...

Overcoming Your Gym Fears

Overcoming Your Gym Fears

We are all guilty of making gym excuses. Right now I’m sat at my desk dreaming up logical reasons why I can’t go this evening. And with the darker evenings and colder weather, it’s probable I’ll be making even more of them. But the excuses don’t just stop there. They...

HIPOJI is Bringing ‘Trendy’ Back to the Emoji Market

HIPOJI is Bringing ‘Trendy’ Back to the Emoji Market

Are Jeremy Corbyn, a Pug and an Avocado the new-age emoji’s we’ve been waiting for? It’s already hard to resist not ending every text message with an emoji. But now we have even more reason to get excited, with a fresh new batch of modern images ready to depict our everyday...

WhatsApp with that?

WhatsApp with that?

Do we really need yet another Facebook friend suggestion? With 71 per cent of us admitting that there’s at least one person in our friends list that we don’t know, surely the answer is no. Identity has never been more important to us, but in a world of social media...

Some Men Hug. Get Over It!

Some Men Hug. Get Over It!

Should two men sharing a hug, no matter the sexuality, really be considered a homosexual act? Of course the obvious answer is absolutely not. The term ‘Casual homophobia’ has been created as a response to a string of gentle nods of discrimination. Most recently displayed when the Daily Mail published...

Can We Really Be Just Friends?

Can We Really Be Just Friends?

For centuries men and women have pondered over whether a friendship can exist between them. Can you be friends without benefits and without one fancying the other? With some believing you can and others strongly believing there’s always an ulterior motive, the answer has the majority of the world split....

Looking… Forward

Looking… Forward

“Just because you don’t feel you should need something, doesn’t mean you don’t.” When HBO announced they would be making a movie version of Looking rainbow flags rejoiced around the world. With only two seasons under its belt, the San Francisco based dramedy following a group of gay men was...

The Rainbow Olympics – Is this our most diverse games yet?

The Rainbow Olympics – Is this our most diverse games yet?

It’s hard not to feel patriotic as the hysteria around the Olympics continues to grow. If you aren’t watching it, then you’re reading about it and if you’re lucky enough to have scored a ticket to Rio itself, then quite frankly I’m jealous. Since the opening ceremony on Friday 5th...

The Great City Escape

The Great City Escape

When the UK summer starts, after weeks of biting cold, you should be able to ditch the coat. But it’s August and I’m still donning a winter wardrobe. With that depressing thought in mind, it makes the time we spend away from our desks even more precious. The weekend getaway...
