One of the great things about having a blog is that you get to big up your friends when they launch a new business venture. Here’s a very cheeki enterprise from my friend Emma.

Cheeki Limited is a “tongue in cheeki” new business venture from Tom Lakeman (artist) and Emma Woolrych (fashion photographer). The business ethos of Cheeki Limited is simple but spicy: create elegant and playful gift collections that appeal to the savvy fashion consumer with a wicked sense of humour.

Their first product line is Cheeki Hangers–a premium coat hanger with a twist–a model’s legs, styled in racy lingerie sporting stilettos, photographed by the artistic duo and fabricated to a clear acrylic base. [click to continue…]

The Sunborn Yacht Hotel is something of a floating gin palace, a 420ft motorless yacht, with 135 rooms moored in the docks near ExCel, a mere 15-minute taxi ride from London City Airport. A spa on a moored yacht sounds impossibly glamorous, so I was happy to drag myself out into the freezing cold weather [...]

Hello all! I previously wrote about Avéne’s new acne product, Cleanance Expert. It promised lots of exciting things.
