Chinese New Year Plans?
Dinner Ladies present a totally vegetarian Chinese New Year Supper Club in the beautiful Greenhouse space in Newington. Treat yourself to their immersive evening and step into The New Year with the feeling of energy and fulfilment.
'2020 marks the year of the Rat and is considered a year of new beginnings. The year is looked upon as a new gift, a clean fresh start with no mistakes or regrets. The year of the rat is also said to bring us creative energy and fulfilment.
With these strong new motivations in mind, Dinner Ladies are looking to a greener Lunar new year and will be using their creativity to explore some of their favourite vegetarian Chinese feasting dishes. The evening will be full of exciting undiscovered flavours bringing a fresh & delicious start to the year. As ever there will be inspired cocktails, musical entertainment & the yearly traditional dumpling making!'

Looking for something a little more unique for your home?
You've probable been hearing a lot about buying second hand recently. With over consumption out of control it's about time we all ditched the bad name behind buying second hand and jumped on board. This could be a real game changer to show big businesses how we really want to shop, creating a circular economy and reduce the need for new, new, new!
Zero-Living has just launched its first VINTAGE HOMEWEAR collection and we have made sure that we have some exciting pieces on offer for you! Buying second hand means only one thing... something unique and nine times out of ten these days, much better quality! The problem we have been getting into over the last few decades is cheaply produced, poorly sourced and quick to make products that DONT last a life time. When sourcing our second hand collection here at Zero-Living we have made sure that the pieces are of the highest quality and material, they have a unique design or colour that could fit perfectly into any lifestyle.
Its all about taking a risk on buying something because you love it! These pieces will stand out in your home and get your friends asking questions about how to get their hands on one the same.. unfortunately most of the time it will be pretty hard to find the same one again. Which is exactly why it makes them extra special.
We source all our vintage homeware pieces from local markets, second hand and charity shops, giving back to the local community and supporting the circular ecomony we all need to embrace.

Heading to Liverpool anytime soon? Well you should even if its just for the coffee!
The boys at Wylde Collective have been busy over the last few months curating their own lifestyle space in Heswall, Wirral. The beautifully renovated shop is a great place to stop and embrace the atmosphere of what this brand has worked hard to create. With its mix of adventure, lifestyle and speciality coffee you will never want to leave.
Working closely with the community they offer a place for local bakers to sell their produce and they host a number of event evenings where people can come and enjoy a film or an exhibition by a local artist. If you are heading their way then the last two weeks of January they will be showcasing Scott Woolley's photographs of coastal life.
'Inspired by natural locations, both local and further afield; we started to deeply understand the benefits of allowing ourselves time away from the frenzy of daily life. These benefits are clear to see and we want to be part of protecting that precious escape.
To us, there’s no better place to enjoy these moments than the great outdoors. We rely so much on environment but can often forget to take care of it.
Global conservation for us begins at home, on your doorstep. Join us in preserving our environments, and those moments of quiet reflection in the #wylde.'
