Radio Rooftop Bar
Nine Storey Atrium
I love a rooftop bar! Over the weekend I came across a new hotel (only opened in January) with the most impressive interior I have ever seen! The lobby opened out into the Marconi Lounge which is a cool almost space age looking bar. On the first floor is the Nine Storey Atrium, a stunning 80ft high skylight where hotel guests can enjoy a complimentary welcome drink at the champagne bar and the incredible projected moving images against the huge slanted glossy walls. At the top where the skylight meets the roof is the Radio Rooftop Bar and Restaurant. The views over London are impressive but especially when you can look down into the skylight from the 10th floor down to the 1st floor! Open until 3am, this just may be my new favourite bar!

I personally think that the digital age of photography let’s us take our photographic moments for granted and therefore we never think to print them anymore. I have so many empty photo frames and wall space that I have now decided to be more diligent and display the photos I love at home, not just on Facebook where they’ll be forgotten. StickyGrams are fun ingenious ways to bring to life some of the Instagrams you love (or ones you thought were so artsy!). They are cute little magnets about 5cm x 5cm and are printed in sheets of 9 with your choice of your Instagrams. $14.99 (about £10) and shipped within 24hrs for free worldwide, can’t be simpler!
If like me you want to start printing your favourite iPhone or Instagram photos, i use Pixum who offer a huge range of printing needs. There are many online photo printers but I find Pixum so easy to use, fast and more importantly they print square pictures!
