I also lead the content team for TEDxBrixton.claire (1)What’s your favourite thing to do in Brixton? Eating and drinking! Without a doubt. We’re spoilt for choice here – so many amazing places. There are too many to list all my recommendations, but some of my favourites are Bukowski, Made of Dough, Mama Lan, and Chicken Liquor. Outside of The Village and Pop Brixton, I also like ThreeEightFour and Effra Social (they do a good pub quiz on a Tuesday).What’s your interpretation of this year’s theme ‘Kaleidoscopes’? For me it’s about constant evolution. About retaining beauty, despite an always changing form.What book(s) are you currently reading? What’s it about? Thrive by Arianna Huffington. She wrote the book after collapsing from exhaustion and severely injuring herself. It caused her to dramatically rethink her life, revaluating the choices she was making.

One of my personal favourites is How Sampling Transformed Music by Mark Ronson.

So once you've chosen a color you like, what do you do with it? Try painting the front door. The front door can serve as a focal point or it can be used to telegraph your decorating color scheme for the rest of the porch. So your first step is to go out on your porch or yard and determine a great color for your front door. Depending on the overall statement you want, that is, bold, trendy, subtle, or somewhere in between, choose a color that will complement that look. Then you might choose another complementary or contrasting color to go with that.

Retractable Patio Awning - The retractable version of patio awnings is more posh and pricier. But they are usually easier to be used and installed compared to the fixed type of patio awning. These patio awnings use mechanical systems for rolling up their canvas overhang and for protecting that canvas from getting faded and torn when not being used. There are many choices regarding covered patio designs, you can choose the one you like.

Here are a few quick tips before you get started on your own unique ornaments. Instead of making a pattern you can also use cookie cutters to get your desired shape to. These ornaments can be a little messy especially if your little ones are helping, so you will want to have Que tips on hand in case you squeeze out to much puffy paint on your ornament. Que tips are always great for those quick fixes. You can also use other materials instead of cork board to make your ornaments for example: felt, cardboard or even scraps of wood, no need to run out and buy some cork board if you don't have any on hand. Get creative and see what you have lying around the house you will be surprised at what you can find to make fabulous ornaments.
