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.

My intent was to build a coffee table for my living room, as my current coffee table had a lovely 70's flair to it that I wasn't exactly fond of. The first task at hand was to decide what I would use for the table legs. I noticed that the 3 stringers (the pieces of wood that support the deck boards) had arches cut in them, this were used to accommodate the forklift in its previous life. I found these stringers to be perfect for the legs as they are sturdy and the arch cut into them would provide a decorative look. I cut the stringers right down the middle of the arches and was able to get 4 identical pieces that I could use for the legs.

Bedroom Design Ideas for Men
The final bedroom design idea that we would suggest is metro style. The highlight in this design is its clean, modern and sleek look. If this is the style you choose then you will want low profile furniture without any ornaments. The best is to choose dark color furniture like espresso or black. Platform beds are the best option that fits with this design. The color patterns for this design are black, gray and white. For bedding material, it is best to use white linen. Choose lighting made from glossy materials like porcelain or glass; alternatively you can also select lighting made from bright metals like nickel or chrome. As for the artwork, you may want to choose an abstract painting or glass statue. To complete the metro style in your bedroom design, throw thick shag on the floor.

So classic, and traditional, a nursery filled with welcoming teddy bears is perfect for any baby. You can include teddy bear pictures, teddy bear blankets, and an array of bears that are small and large placed throughout the room.

Goodie bags are perfectly sensible for scout meetings and other group activities in which games generate prizes or other accomplishments are rewarded with patches or certificates which will need to be carried home. These can be sadly lost in the confusion of large rambunctious occasions. Issuing everyone a goodie bag with a few items inside will eliminate some of this problem. Writing names on the goodie bags will also help.

5. Pick a house design. If this is your first gingerbread house party, I suggest you keep to only 1 house design and make it a simple one. Use either an A-Frame design or a basic house design. Don't attempt anything with a second story. That's something to work up to.
