Self-confessed ‘crush-addict’ Isabelle O’Carroll had our audience in fits of laughter discussing her theory on crushes. “Some people say that their crushes are so strong it prevents them from eating or even sleeping! But crushes can be such a powerful motivator making you change your life or a strong comforter in times of depression.”Other highlights during our third quarter included Alex Lambert’s gripping topic on creativity, ideas and technology, Inua Ellams’ insightful talk on mental health issues in men and Sabah Choudrey’s moving story on being a transgendered Muslim.
We chose the theme because we believe this embodies what Brixton really is. We don’t believe in melting pots, we believe in salad bowls, mosaics and kaleidoscopes – things that allow individual elements to be part of a whole.

Cabinet and drawer spaceIdeas for an Impressive Half Bathroom
Bathrooms are one of the most significant rooms in your house because it's a place where you begin and end your activity within the day. There are different types of bathrooms and one of which is called "Half Bathroom/Half Bath" that is considered as the smallest type of them all. Half bathrooms are also identified as "powder rooms", "guest bathrooms" or "2-piece bathrooms" that usually has a sink and a toilet but no bathtub and shower.

Hardscaping doesn't stop there, however many hardscape design professionals will also readily draw up plans for a patio, a barbeque pit, a deck, walkways, decorative retaining walls, exotic fences and gains, and even artistic sculptures as well! The applications of hardscape design are as varied and beautiful as any live garden -- just more permanent. But don't think that hard means large -- hardscapers will just as readily put together small details in an otherwise 'soft' environment. For example, having a Japanese-style concrete lantern or a copper Foo dog set up to grace your backyard is right up a hardscapers alley.
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.

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.
Ensure your bedstead is a smart tailored affair

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!Make Your Graduation Party One of a Kind!

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..Goody Bags are Good Party Fun
Parties generate a lot of take home items and goodie bags are reasonable party expenditures because of this. The variety available allows for just the right goodie bags to match with just the right occasion.
