A Warm Hello to Our Readers!
Have you heard, the universe is telling us that winter is long gone, and spring is here to stay – this can only be a good thing, right? As we welcome springtime with open arms, we’re also starting to notice the perks of lighter evenings, blossoming flowers… and leaving the house without wearing a fur-hooded coat is always a bonus.
For your reading pleasure, every issue we like to keep a finger firmly on the pulse of what’s happening in and around South London. We also like to give you a taste of international waters by including scintillating reads about the likes of wine and travel, just in case you fancy holidaying any time soon.
In the spirit of spring, we’ve been busy rounding up the best topics for you to enjoy with your morning coffee, or a cheeky glass of fizz – whatever floats your boat. From the history of Easter and sweet dessert wines to pair with your favourite dishes, to the hidden museums of South London and the skinny on which events and exhibitions to go see now; there’s lots of exciting features to keep you entertained.
Turn to page 12 if you’re in the mood to book a budget-friendly spring break anytime soon, and page 34 where you’ll discover the quirky ‘Robot Zoo’ exhibition every Londoner is talking about.
From ethical fashion and trendy London day spas, to productivity apps that’ll help you stay organised… oh, and spring-cleaning hacks that actually work, you’ll find it all here amongst the glossy pages of Word of Mouth Magazine.
Enjoy the issue… Dawn Wood Editor-in-Chief Word of Mouth Magazine
