Five things we love

I don’t know what it is, but I have been drawn to pastel pinks, deep and light blues and rich purples recently. Also: GOLD! (If you have ordered a copy of Lionheart recently, you will see they now arrive in gold envelopes!). The combination can be seen in design, interiors, nature… issue six… Love it! […]

Launch at The Forge

On April 23rd Lionheart Magazine launched at the magnificent, The Forge. Down a small cobbled street in the arts quarter of Bristol, the beautiful industrial warehouse style building has such a fresh, clean and impressive aesthetic.

Five links we love #3

“San Francisco is a single room in the front of an apartment where bay windows overlook the steep slope of the second-to-last block of Green Street. It’s a room where a boy seven years older than I am hasn’t finished moving in yet – or so he claimed, and I believed him then. It’s a […]

Sundays in a hotel lobby

My best friend K and I used to go to cafes around noon on Sundays, but it wasn’t really working. I mean, the company was fine – excellent, even. But is there anything worse than meeting someone around lunchtime in a place that doesn’t serve food? Cafes have cake stuff of course, but a muffin […]
