A Hidden Neighborhood in London’s City Center

By Adam Groffman Seven Dials, London In a city as sprawling as London, many people might be tempted to avoid the city center. It might at first seem like an area over-crowded, noisy, congested and expensive, but if you know what the locals know, it’s far from frightening. And in fact, it’s probably one of the best spots to discover London—especially for weekend tourists. The Covent Garden area can be especially daunting for tourists—it’s full of vendors, tourists and the London...

Ruffians – Shoreditch

Fran Lebowitz once said “you’re only as good as your last haircut” and really, who am I to argue with Fran Lebowitz? Finding a good barber is difficult, in fact it’s almost like dating. How many bad dates/haircuts have you had in your time? Sadly there’s no Tinder for barbers, well not yet anyway. But don’t worry, I’ve got you covered. My barber works at Ruffians and I can’t recommend him (or them) highly enough. Ruffians, hailing originally from Scotland, opened their first London shop a few...

Inside A Mega-Famous Beauty Blogger's Massive Makeup Closet

I thought I knew beauty until I moved to the Middle East. Even though I have more than 10 years of experience writing about products, ingredients, trends, and covering backstage at Fashion Week in NYC, beauty in the Middle East feels like it's in a league of its own. I quickly learned that if you want to really know beauty in this region, you would be amiss not to get to know Dubai-based beauty expert Huda Kattan, more commonly known by her IG handle @hudabeauty.The American-born Iraqi makeup a...

Why picky eaters are the new normal

From fear of anchovies to loathing of beetroot, robust tastes seem to be on the way out. It’s time to fight back Puntarelle is a variety of chicory that is much loved in Rome, and pretty hard to come by everywhere else. I’ve only ever seen it on one menu in this country – you used sometimes to be able to order it at Orso in Covent Garden – and I’ve never spotted it piled beside the purslane and peppergrass at a farmers’ market.
