London blogs of the week
It’s sometimes easy to get swamped by the sheer volume of stuff on the web and we find there’s often not enough hours in the day to digest all the great blog content around London.
That said, London Living are going back to bringing you the best of London’s blogosphere, right here, saving you the trouble of digging them out yourselves. So, rest assured you can get all the top headlines right here, at the click of a button.
First up, is a chuckle-inducing piece from Now. Here. This blog – the trusty mouthpiece for Time Out‘s London fans. They’ve taken it upon themselves to put the record straight in answering the most frequent (and sometimes rather odd) queries about London on Google…yes, we’re sure you’ve all wondered if London zoo has a panda before!
So from pandas to hosepipes, flags to skyscrapers, put your mind at ease with this thorough dispelling of London’s urban myths!
Our second pick comes courtesy of the cool Huck Magazine who drew our eyes to HelloHead, “an exhibition featuring sixty illustrators and designers (including Gemma Correll, Jack Teagle and Kate Copeland) who have paired up and done each other’s portraits”, happening later this month.
August 22 will see Cargo host the exhibition for one night only and all the works will be auctioned on the night with all the money raised going towards the National Autistic Society. Expect live portrait drawing and a pop-up shop as well as an exhibition from the NAS; we think this looks like a wonderful occasion for an even worthier cause: one for the diary.
Lastly, we look at something a bit closer to home – Australian steeplechaser, 22 year old Genevieve LaCaze‘s wonderful, diary-like blog post on life at the Village so far for athlete’s forum, Flo Track.
“This place is unreal”.
Never far from her camera, you can take a tour around East Village, meet the other athletes and share the electric atmosphere of the Opening Ceremony with Genevieve, as she takes you through her experience of the Games and the Village thus far, with some insightful words and telling images.
