Sir John Soanes Museum

13 Lincoln’s Inn Fields, London, WC2A 3BP

How many people have heard of Sir John Soane or know who he is? An architect born in the 16th century the son of a brick layer established himself as one of the greats of British architecture. He went on to collect many paintings, various pieces of architecture, different types of curious objects and even managed to acquire the sarcophagus of Seti I when the British Museum couldn’t afford it.

The museum is his old London home next to a nice little park in Holburn. It’s free to visit and I would recommend it is well worth it.

Claudia Winkleman has no style


The Sunday Time have made Winkleman a columnist for their style section. Have they gone mad? If anyone has watched any episodes of Strickly Come Dancing and seen the way she dresses you will see she has no style what-so-ever. Wearing dresses that don’t suit her, that give her a funny shape, or the dresses just look hideous. 

In her very first published column she sounds aggressive and annoyed with anyone wearing flats that show your toes.   I am afraid she just won’t offer any insight or interest in real fashion.
