EXTREME IRONING

Extreme ironing is an extreme sport in which people take ironing boards to remote locations and iron items of clothing. Proudly announcing this to the office on Monday could elicit some giggles but success in this sport (officially recognized in 1999) demands skill, strength and more than a little bit of moxie. Pinned as combining the danger and excitement of an ‘extreme’ sport with the satisfaction of a well pressed shirt, extreme ironing takes work-life balance to the next level. Also brilliant for a team under stress; grab your whole accounts squad and take on the Guinness World Record for most people extreme ironing underwater—currently 173.

Where: Anywhere you like – from your own backyard to the bottom of the ocean.

High Top Pop Up

I am almost incapable of suppressing my sheer excitement when looking at the week ahead.

Sure, I’ll be fighting for #FROW and anxiously schmoozing with fashionistas at many a soirée, but, my joy comes some kicks.

This weekend, Converse are staging a takeover. The high top paradise that is the ‘One Star Hotel’ marks the start of a two day party promising the freshest sounds, styles and the MASSIVELY anticipated drop of Converse’s new collection, One Star.

The Converse One Star Hotel will contain five floors of exclusive sneaker drops and rooms curated by the likes of A$AP Nast, Yung Lean and MadeMe. The hotel – open on February 16th and 17th – requires no reservation and will host gigs, workshops and conversations with some of the most exciting creators in the world today.

Flying in the face of what we’d expect from a five-star hotel, the Converse One Star Hotel promises “shoebox rooms, staff with attitude, loud neighbours and zero sleep”.

Chuck Taylor, I salute you!
