Everything’s Coming Up Roses

SEEN recently had the great pleasure of meeting the founder of Roses Only, Danielle Gubbay, and hearing all about her luxury enterprise. It’s said that roses and works of art are beautiful in themselves; there’s definitely something ‘ultimate’ about a rose. It is this quality that Roses Only have enhanced to create their gorgeous brand.

SEEN recently had the great pleasure of meeting the founder of Roses Only, Danielle Gubbay, and hearing all about her luxury enterprise. It’s said that roses and works of art are beautiful in themselves; there’s definitely something ‘ultimate’ about a rose. It is this quality that Roses Only have enhanced to create their gorgeous brand.

The company recently launched in the UK after twenty years of success in Australia, New Zealand and Singapore, sourcing and delivering the world’s finest long-stemmed roses. But what makes Roses Only special is that their roses are grown high up in the Andes Mountains in Ecuador, and are carefully selected by experts to meet very exacting standards – all of their roses are at least 65cm in length.

Browsing the website, SEEN is struck by the vividness and quality of the roses. We feel sure you will be too. There is a huge variety of bouquets for all occasions, many with luxury champagnes, and a refreshing absence of extraneous foliage (except, perhaps, for a few equally exquisite lilies). When Danielle says Roses Only, that’s exactly what she means.

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?
