LIFE BEFORE LOCKDOWN, WITH FOOTBALLER MEMPHIS DEPAY FOR SCHON! MAG

No Comments Culture, lifestyle, sara darling, schon magazine

I’ll be the first to admit, I don’t know much about football. Especially Dutch football! So after being commissioned to interview Dutch legend, Memphis Depay, for the cover story of Schon! magazine, I got my head down to do some research.

Thankfully, there was lots to find out! Not only known for his skills on the pitch, Depay has a huge following as a rapper- just check out his Insta to see his antics.

But even more relevant, for the “Giving Back” issue of Schon! magazine, he funds an orphanage in Africa.

HOW YOU CAN BUY SHARES IN A BANKSY

Comments Off on HOW YOU CAN BUY SHARES IN A BANKSY art, Culture, lifestyle, my words, news, review, sara darling

There are art lovers, and art investors, but not many people can do both. However, thanks to the owner of the HOFA Gallery in Mayfair, investors can buy shares in selected artwork from the “XXI” collection, and part-own a slice of history.

This revolutionary scheme is the first of its kind in the UK, and is offering some very intriguing pieces of art. So if you have a spare $500, why not get in touch with A R T C E L S at HOFA.

MASCULINITY THROUGH THE LENS AT THE BARBICAN

Comments Off on MASCULINITY THROUGH THE LENS AT THE BARBICAN Culture, flush magazine, lifestyle, my words, review

The theory behind the show is that men are more than their parts. In a world where men are seemingly less liberated, with TV showing peacocking males with hairless, chiseled bodies on Love Island and ‘reality TV’, the truth is, men throughout history have been portrayed in many different forms.?

Read my review for Flush magazine. There’s lots to look at, so make sure you have a free afternoon!

WINTER LIGHTS FESTIVAL

Comments Off on WINTER LIGHTS FESTIVAL Culture, lifestyle, my words, news, SoEdited, travel

I was lucky enough to visit the Winter Lights Festival in Portland, Oregon earlier this year, and wowee! It was impressive.

It’s no wonder that the fifth anniversary in 2020 is getting bigger and better, with even more artists, installations and immersive events taking place around the self confessed “Weird” city.

If that’s what makes it weird, that’s why I like it!

I DREAM OF A KING: ONE MAN SHOW

Comments Off on I DREAM OF A KING: ONE MAN SHOW Culture, lifestyle, my words, review, sara darling

Although you may know Martin Luther King as a pioneer and civil rights revolutionary, this one man play explores his flaws.

Written and performed by Christopher Tajah. Directed by Bernie C.Byrnes, this show is mesmerising, thought-provoking and heart-wrenching. A must see for anyone who enjoys being wowed.
