Band Review - Silent Republic


So on Friday I went to a gig of a mutual friends in Hoxton at the Underbelly... I will admit I wasn't overly impressed with the venue, but that might be because it didn't really suit the style of music... and the band were on early so there wasn't a huge crowd!

But the band themselves - Silent Republic were very good, great stage presence from a couple of the band members...and some very talented musicians!

I would say they are definitely influenced by Kasabian, and have a very rock n roll vintage feel... listening to their Myspace page as I type, I also believe they are better live.

So if you are around London and fancy checking out a new band they usually do gigs once a week - LIKE them on Facebook under Silent Republic!  http://www.myspace.com/wearesilentrepublic  Or check out our fav song Black Magic on Spotify...

GET THE LOOK - Sweet Like Chocolate (Browns) Wedding Theme

Sitting at my computer in my new winter outfit of muted colours, and the greying sky's outside have inspired me to consider autumn wedding colour schemes... and brown is not one we have look at yet!

Fro dark chocolate brown through to the caramel golden browns!  Add another colour for that splash of bright (good choice's are pink and orange, but try a light blue for something different).

Wedding Anniversary!

We all love to remember the found memories of special occasions, birthdays, anniversary - all sort and especially Wedding Anniversary's... we should celebrate the time you have dedicate to each other!

According to Wiki, my source of all knowledge:

In the Commonwealth realms, one can receive a message from the monarch for 60th, 65th, and 70th wedding anniversaries, and any wedding anniversary after that.[1] This is done by applying to Buckingham Palace in the United Kingdom, or to the Governor-General's office in the other Commonwealth realms.[2]
In Canada, one can also receive a message from the Governor General for the 50th anniversary, and every 5th anniversary after that.[3]
The situation is similar in Australia, where one can receive a letter of congratulations from the Governor-General on the 50th and all subsequent wedding anniversaries; the Prime Minister, the federal Opposition leader, local members of parliament (both state and federal), and state Governors may also send salutations for the same anniversaries.[4]
In the United States, one can receive a greeting from the President for any wedding anniversary on or after the 50th.[5]
Roman Catholics may apply for a Papal blessing through their local diocese for wedding anniversaries of a special nature (25th, 50th, 60th, etc.).[6]

Traditional and modern anniversary gifts
Lists of wedding anniversary gifts vary by country. The traditional and modern U.S. versions were compiled by librarians at the Chicago Public Library.[7][8][9][10]

London Riots 2011

I know it's not wedding related but as I live in Bow, close to the riots (in Hackney) and work in central London the 2011 August riots have affected me and will be remember by future generations.  So it is only right that we document these moments and learn from them...

Really this behaviour is only being created by small groups of people and yes they started off with a meaning, but now it is just yobs taking advantage of the broken state of our government and police force!!

The Coalition need to a get a grip, use what force of law the Great British people do have left to bring back common sense to the people, even if that means bring out the Army.

Also the people on the street should take a good look at themselves, if you are out there looting, smashing and starting fires why?  What respect do you deserve?  Who are you?  How did you grow up to think this behaviour is acceptable?  What is next if you can't follow the rules?  What if it is not you on the street but someone else?  And they are breaking into your shop/house, no one is there to help you...

Peckham - South East London (where I lived before)

Croyden - South London


Last night Monday 8th August, as my housemate and myself sat in our flat doing as we were told, not to go out into the streets, we watched as groups of youths walked hoods up to the riots and scrolled through pages of Facebook updates from friends and tweets on Twitter.  One friend of my housemate was locked into a Tesco to stop people breaking into loot, a friend in Peckham watch as people smashed shops, looted good and shot fireworks at police!  In the middle of the night when things seemed to have died off my ex MOH text to say her part of town was now on fire and another friend had been evacuated!
