Long time, no see. LGHQ took a small break for summer. We took a trip to the West Coast of England for some surfing and went to Paris for some art and shopping. It’s been a good few weeks! We’re still mooching around London desperately trying to avoid the Olympic mayhem and taking refuge at the National to see London Road and the Tate for the Munch. We’ve been given a glimpse of an Indian summer today but Autumn is definitely descending. Check out Kim’s beautiful autumnal-like photos of a recent masked ball style party.We’ll be battling with the wind and rain in no time….
We know we’ve been unusually quiet this month, we’ve been busy bees (and the site had a few minor technical errors that put us out of action for a while) but we have lots coming up. We’ve been to the Bold Tendencies launch party in Peckham (which was, without a doubt, the busiest launch we have ever been to) and have been knee deep in mud at Latitude Festival. Reviews of both coming up shortly. There has also been a graduation, a trip to Stockholm and a new job so THAT is why we’ve been quiet. Lots coming up in July. Check back soon you lovely people. Thanks again. x
SUMMER HAS ARRIVED. Or at least we thought it had when hours of sunburning, ice-cream eating and drinking overpriced Pimms filled our days. It was glorious. Whereas we at LG HQ spent most of our time on the rooftop garden above Queen Elizabeth Hall, Kim took these gorgeous pictures of our friends Sarah and Tasha frolicking in the West Midland countryside after their finals. June is going to be a good’n. Lots of exclusives and hopefully some decent snaps of our forthcoming trips to Florence and Morocco.
Hope the Jubilee weekend and bank holiday have been great for y’all. Here’s one of our favourite overheard quotes of the weekend: “So, is Jubilee like….a King?”
It’s been a busy few weeks with Birthdays popping up left, right and centre. As much as we would love every single post to be a tribute to our nearest and dearest, it might lack the culture (unless birthday culture is a thing…maybe it IS a thing?)
However, this one is a big one and as such it’s a big must! It’s Kim’s Birthday TODAY. Not only has she been quite simply the driving force behind the Little Ghost design and creative structure, including lots of our fashion pieces, she’s also been a bloody marvelous girl to know these past few years. AND she does all this while being the size of a Candyfloss bubble.
The sun is out. THANK GOD. London was absolutely beautiful today with lots of frozen yoghurts and frappuccinos to be had. We’ve already got a vino-on-the-common plan forming for tomorrow.
Check out these snaps. They’re taken from a recent trip to Arthur’s Seat in Edinburgh that Kim took with some friends. Look at that blue sky! That’s what we’re talking about. Enjoy the sun Ghostlings.x
March was a funny month. Sometimes hot, sometimes cold. We spent it in central going to gigs and exhibitions and then back home on the common and in pubs in Brixton. The city is beautiful in good weather. Having said that, the weekend we spent at the seaside drinking tea and whiskey (separately) in Scott’s VW van was one of the best ever. Never underestimate the importance of the countryside.
It’s 16 degrees here in London. The first signs of warm weather and we’re acting like it’s summer. We’ve got friends visiting from the midlands this weekend and so have planned lots of city activities for the weekend including a trip to Portobello market, Kensington gardens and a night out in Brick Lane. Can’t wait! What are you all up to?
