Pink Onesie Convo

Pink Onesie Convo - Paul Conneally, New Parks, Leicester 2016

Today I spotted three different people wearing onesies and a woman in a dressing gown around the Aikman Avenue shops in New Parks. It's an interesting cultural shift in what's acceptable or not to leave the house in - maybe it's better - a more relaxed approach to indoor outdoor home not home distinctions. Each to their own - live and let live! Mind you I don't think it's a style I'll be sporting in public anytime soon - the world's not ready for that yet!

Bertie at The Blue Army Craft Group

Bertie at The Blue Army Craft Group, New Parks, Leicester, UK

I was at the Blue Army Craft Group meeting to talk through and invite the members to take part in a new sound art piece with I-mitri CounterAction and Soft Touch Arts.

The group is pretty much self-organising and they work together on crochet, knitting and other craft and making skills. Many of the group, including Bertie, have worked with me on other works and projects such as Involuntary Painting New Parks : New York alongside my collaborator and friend New York artist Millree Hughes. They are a great bunch!

Marta Oliviera-Child - Head Chef at the Bom Bom Patisserie

Marta Oliviera-Child is the head chef and co-owner of the Bom Bom Patisserie in Loughborough, Leicestershire, right in the heart of England.

Bom Bom Patisserie has been operating a few years but only opened the café part of the business in May 2016. It has proved to be a tasty, stylish and instant hit.

Marta comes from Brazil where her mother runs a restaurant. She came to Loughborough in 2006, like so many young people do, to study at Loughborough University. She always had a dream to open a patisserie and luckily for the people of Loughborough she has and what a patisserie it is!
