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.

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.
Live tweets and updates being shared on the day included quotes from some of our most inspiring speakers -like Robyn Parker, Helen Wright and Hugh Lewis, Pete Bearder and Charlotte Knowles:We were treated to incredible performances from Lil Trubz, Brandon Bennet and The Voice UK finalist Brixton’s very own Lara Lee “TEDxBrixton to me is about people coming together sharing ideas and it’s about the energy of the area. Brixton has always had a massive energy in terms of creativity and the point of having an event like this is to improve as a community,” explained Lara.

You can hang two or three hanging outdoor planters from the roof of your deck to add a splash of color to your entire deck. One great way to use hanging planters is to match the color of flowers in the planters to the colors in your outdoor furniture cushions. This will make your entire deck seem brighter and alive with color. For those of you who want their deck to be a little more private then hanging several planters with long trailing plants along your deck roof with give you the sense of privacy that you long for while creating a wonderful and beautiful ambiance for you to enjoy. By choosing large colorful flowers to put into your hanging planters you can create the feeling of being in a tree house in the middle of a rain forest.
Outdoor planters are ideal for turning that city patio into a country garden especially if you are renting. Using planters means that you can create your own little garden without digging up the landlord's property. By using outdoor containers of different shapes, sizes, and materials you can easily turn that dull city patio into a beautiful country garden. Choose a variety of interesting plants both shrubs and flowers. Perhaps a rose bush, and a few daisies and black eyed Susan and use them to create your own private and intimate patio garden. Remember even a small city patio probably has room for a small planter holding a miniature rose bush. So simply use your imagination and draw up a plan so you know just how you want your patio to look.

Pallet Furniture IdeasHow I Made 100 Dollars in a Few Hours From a Free Wooden Pallet
Lately I've been dabbling in wood working. I'm certainly no expert at it but I actually find it relaxing and it brought out a creative side of me I didn't even know existed. A few weeks ago I purchased 70 bags of topsoil for what I hope turns out to be a garden at some point in the future. They were delivered on a standard 40 x 48 inch wooden pallet. From the look of it, this pallet has had its fair share of use. As I stood there in my garage looking at this worn and weathered pallet, I noticed a sense of beauty about its rusted nails and abused gray wood. I pondered what the story was behind it and how many adventures it had been on. So what did I do? I started to dismantle it with a pry bar and a hammer so I could use it to burn in the backyard fire pit I had recently finished. After I had finished taking it apart, it laid on my garage floor in pieces and I suddenly had an idea, I don't know why or what had prompted it, but for some reason I thought to myself "Hey, that would make a neat looking coffee table."
