“Mathematics, rightly viewed, possesses not only truth, but supreme beauty — a beauty cold and austere, without the gorgeous trappings of painting or music." | Betrand Russell "Beauty of Mathematics" by Yann Pineill & Nicolas Lefaucheux
HAVING type 2 diabetes may mean you are already on the path to Alzheimer’s. This startling claim comes from a study linking the two diseases more intimately than ever before. There is some good news: the same research also offers a way to reverse memory problems associated with diabetes – albeit in rats – which may hint at a new treatment for Alzheimer’s.

I may be a bit bias (my brother worked on the special effects) but I thought Gravity was incredible. To be honest the first time I heard it only had two people in I thought it wouldn’t be my thing at all - I have such short attention span and love thrillers but I was captivated. Its in cinemas in the UK now and recommended : )

'Perfectly tailored comfort' - that is how I would describe Oliver Spencer's Autumn/Winter 2013 WW collection. A big fan of his menswear I was delighted to be invited for the #bloggersbreakfast and a muse around his first womenswear collection. The collection is petit and well thought out with a good range; from loungey tailored trackybottoms and oversized cardigans to androgynous silhouetted trousers fitting close to the body offset by feminine designed detail in the rounded collars on the coats and shirts. Oliver took the time to take me personally through his collection and from the start it was abundantly clear was this was an exceptional designer who was inspired by life - each collection he has an artist or architecture in mind - this time it was influential 20th Century German artist, Joseph Beuys and his association with 1960's Fluxus movement. Spencer is here for the long game and so our his clothes, his first womenswear collection is a triumph. Available instore now here or in real life Oliver Spencer, 62 Lambs Conduit Street, London, WC1N 3LW.
