Kikki.K: Quirky London

MDAY 15 - Wrapping Paper-revised

Fans of Swedish Kikki.K’s stationery will already know that they have a delightful London range. All your iconic London symbols, which is to say Tower Bridge, the Tube, Big Ben, the Big Wheel, the fast-disappearing Red Telephone box, the London Bus… they’re all here in traditional red, white and blue, yet they seem fresh and light with none of the usual heaviness you associate with tourist tat.

With tote bags, wrapping paper, cards, pens and notebooks, Kikki.K boasts a small but eclectic selection ideal for the visitor to jot down notes in – go on, or you’ll forget – or to buy presents to take back home, or even to send. They’re very reasonably priced from £3 to £9; the perfect Summer purchase when you’re travelling light.

Cocktails at the General Store

SEEN is tireless in her cocktail research, and very much enjoyed travelling to Highbury last week to try The General Store’s new summer cocktail menu and to check out the new interior. She was delighted to sample a Honey Mimosa, very sweet and fruity and just the ticket after a hot journey. It was, as its name suggests, a Mimosa with just a touch of honey.

Canaletto: A Drawing Workshop with Alexandra Blum

SEEN has long been an admirer of Alexandra Blum’s liminal and apocalyptic renderings of London’s urban spaces, in which the capital seems ever-changing. It is the artist’s job to capture not only space but the passage of time itself.

Love Hunt at the British Museum

SEEN had the pleasure (pun intended) of being invited to a ‘Love Hunt’ at the British Museum. The museum, founded in 1753, is committed to preserving art, culture and history, and has collected around 8 million objects. These artefacts come from every corner of the world, revealing a fragment of many significant moments in time, from Mesopotamia to the Vikings; from the Inuits to the Indians. So, when one embarks on a visit to the world famous British Museum, where does one start?
