Foodie Rich European Tour Part 2

Here it is! Part two of my European tour! Lou and I are in Italy, Rome to be precise, and what a chic place it is. I’m sure we all have that preconception of Italians; whatever the occasion they just look extremely stylish. Gents wearing razor sharp suits, ladies in glamorous outfits, smart shoes, oh and always wearing sunglasses.

All or Nothing Review

East London, 1965. The explosion of pills, thrills and high-collared shirts that was the mod scene is just about to begin, and at the centre of it are four young cockney lads, keen on continental clothing, US-imported blues and getting out of the button-down scene of the generation before them.
