2. What’s your favourite thing to do in Brixton? I spend pretty much every day in Brixton and still love just walking around and soaking up the atmosphere, mainly walking through Market Row, Granville Arcade and Electric Avenue.3. What’s your interpretation of this year’s theme ‘Kaleidoscopes’? My interpretation is very much a visual one. Kaleidoscopes are beautiful ever-changing patterns that develop and grow without knowing what you are going to see next. I think that hugely describes Brixton. It is such a diverse place that is constantly changing. Every day I see new developments and the way things change but still fit together and work alongside each other.4. What book(s) are you currently reading? What’s it about? I’m reading a few! One is “Lean in” by Sheryl Sandberg which is a hugely motivational read that I would recommend to anyone. I’m also working my way through the new Gizzi Erskine “Healthy Eating” cookbook which is brilliant. I’ve just finished Lena Dunham’s “Not That Kind of Girl” which had me in stitches throughout and gave a whole new perspective on being a woman in her twenties!5. What’s your favourite TED talk? That opinion changes daily, I have the app so constantly have a look as to what kind of talk I’d like to listen to. One that really sticks out is from this year’s TED in Vancouver by David Eagleman which we screened at the Impact Hub in Brixton. It really opens your eyes to what science can do6. What’s your biggest highlight from last year’s TEDxBrixton event? I put forward Simon Parkes as someone to approach as a speaker for 2014 and seeing him on stage after weeks of developing his talk and being such a huge fan of his story and book was a very special moment, one I will remember for a very long time.

However, not all families and houses have this type of bathroom since it's not the standard type that every family must have. On the other hand, despite being small in terms of space, you can easily make this small bathroom attractive and interesting through putting up unique designs, materials, and decor. So how can you decorate your half bath to make it comfortable and functional at the same time?
It is easier to experiment with various colors because of its size but make sure that the colors will complement your accessories and decorations. However, the best color choice would still be something that will make your half bathroom space look bigger.

Of course, any real project is going to have both hardscaping and 'softscaping' elements. Many hardscape design professionals started as traditional landscapers, so they can address both elements easily, but if you're working with a dedicated hardscaper, you may need to call in a more traditional landscape designer and have the two collaborate.Hardscape Design Professionals Make Short Work of Long Lasting Beauty
Hardscape design professionals generally do almost everything that a traditional landscaper does -- getting dirt under their fingernails on a daily basis -- but they add another element on top of the usual topiary, garden, and lawn details.

Make use of accessories to make the shocking contrasting colour you are using explode. You could have candles, flowers or even an alarm clock, to set off the look. Don't forget about using texture, as this will bring life to the masculine quality of the grey. By using soft fleeces or cashmere and wool for the cushions and the throws, it will give more depth to the design of your room.
The key with grey is to choose use it as you would for any other type of neutral colour, such as magnolia or cream. There is no need to be fearful of it, as it is neutral and will site well in any room of the house. Not only that, it is a very practical colour and if you follow the latest trends you will notice it is the 'in' colour to go with.

You can have it catered, you can cook or our family favorite for our barbeque theme is hamburgers, hot dogs and heroes. Add some salads, fruit platters and a graduation themed dessert and you have an easy, inexpensive menu. We set up a "stadium" food booth near the grill. My husband and his buddies were grilling to order, with the condiments and rolls set out at the booth. You make a poster and name your area. For example, at our party for our youngest who was going to DePaul University in Chicago.. we set up the "DePaul Dug Out" and decorated the table with the school colors. For our son, who was headed to Rutgers University, we had a "Knight Stand" as their school mascot is the Scarlet Knight. For another of our parties, I bought cases of bottled water, took off the store label and made my own personalized labels celebrating the graduates!
Once you have a budget and have decided on your venue, then settle on a date and do it early. You will be competing with lots of other parties this time of year and by getting yours on the calendar first you will avoid conflicts. Next decide on invitations. You can order them online or buy them in the stores. However to save money, you can make them yourself on the computer. There are numerous invitation products available in office supply stores that will give you templates to make your own. Be creative... add graduation clipart, a logo from the college or high school of your graduate or even inset a photo! Unless you have room in your house or are having it off site, ALWAYS plan a rain date. Also make sure you have an RSVP with a date deadline and add your email as well as your phone number. A 'regrets only" RSVP system makes for tricky planning. Recently, I have even seen people use free online invitation services.

Every color imaginable has its place at themed birthday parties or holiday get-togethers
Adult party guests often like to take home small items too. Sometimes these things don't include prizes as much as a sample of deserts for those at home. Goodie bags are a pretty good idea for cookie exchange parties. Each person brings a dozen cookies to a buffet table. They each collect one cookie from a dozen different plates. Plastic wrap and larger goodie bags are safe ways to transport these back home..

For others who don't have the natural ability but are open to follow simple DIY instructions, searching for stone fire pit ideas may allow you to turn your dream into reality. Try searching for video clips from YouTube before buying the products you need. There are lots of ready-made models that you can assemble yourselves. Just take note of the precautionary measures and fire safety features that you need to know in choosing the ideal location of your stone fire pit. Make sure the ideal location is away from your home, it's not near structures that could easily catch fire like branches of trees, chemicals, etc. You also need to take note of the materials that you need to buy that can withstand the fire. Fire bricks should be considered within the interior part of the fire pit.
The good thing about having this pit in your backyard is the variety of purpose it serves - people are always amazed at the fire it produces - the flame to cook your marshmallows and steak, the warmth it brings to the chilly nights and the light it spreads to its surroundings.
