Tuesday 7th August: "True Colours" at Newport Street Gallery

"True Colours" is the new group show at Newport Street Gallery with three female artists exploring bold colour in painting including Boo Saville‘s gradients "Colour Fields" , Helen Beard and Sadie Laska.  Heaven for a colour hunter like me!  

Tuesday 7th August: Ibiza Holiday

Ive been to Ibiza on a yoga holiday for the second time but found a new side to the island I hadn't experienced before.  Since running the trails in Chamonix earlier this Summer I was now intrigued to  explore the hills via the tracks and coastal paths to find its flora & fauna and unexpected little forage.  This was made possible thanks to Kitty of "Outdoor People" for the idea, navigation and yoga chats along the way!  “Outdoor People” is a social enterprise, with a mission to make the outdoors easy for everyone, and in particular for families, kids and communities in London. Its also an equipment shop in Netil Market in Hackney which I look forward to checking out, especially for these colourful sustainable bags by Cotopaxi.

The other set of images here are from a hotel I discovered whilst looking up a hillside from swimming in the sea at a bay called Portinax.  I could see some interesting awnings so wandered up to have a look and found the most beautiful interior design EVER.  All the rooms from the reception to the bar, restaurant and shop are covered in colour and curiosities gathered from around the world with a bit of retro 1960's sprinkled inbetween.  It's literally my idea of heaven all in one location.  It's a hotel called Los Enamorados (The Lovers) so I would love to return to see inside the rooms too - apparently everything is for sale!  If any one reading this is visiting the island, this is my top tip!
