9 Things you definitely haven’t done in Paris yet

Hey Guys,

I was recently contacted  by a cool Travel/Food company "BonAppetour" (keep reading for more about the them!). They wanted to collaborate on some guest posts for their website and my blog. As you may already know, I love to travel and I love writing about travel! For the BonAppetour website, I crafted a unique blog post; "Spotlight On: Marotta-Mondolfo, Italy" which you can check out here. And the lovely Abby (who is the BonApp. Paris Community Manager) created this special post for Eboni + Ivory! 

Primark A/W Press Launch (Sneek Peek!)

Hey Guys, 

So last Thursday I was invited to Primark's Autumn/Winter Press Launch in London. It was a really cool event and I managed to take lots of pics to share with you guys! Think of this as a cheeky sneek peek and "To Buy" list for your Autumn/Winter shopping! 





What's been your favourite? Let me know in the comments or via Twitter @ebonidixon

Update: Check out my YouTube video with a lowdown of this event and a little Primark haul afterwards!

The Night Jar | Cocktail Heaven

 Hey Guys,

This hidden, underground cocktail and jazz bar is almost impossible to find! With just a door in the wall between a couple of cafes, The Night Jar bar feels like a secret to be uncovered...
I had never heard of this place before, but I love jazz and cocktails, so The Night Jar seemed like a cool place for a first date. It was his choice, not mine, after our original Jazz place seemed to have closed down! But I am so glad we ended up here because it was the perfect setting.

We arrived at 7pm on a Wednesday and were seated in a quiet corner opposite the bar. Our position meant the additional element of being able to watch the flamboyant mixologists create the wonderfully spectacular drinks (but more about those later!)  

Yayoi Kusama: Sculptures, Paintings & Mirror Rooms

Hey Guys,

So last Friday I took a trip to North London to visit the Victoria Miro Gallery with my best friend Naomi. 
From the website:

"Victoria Miro is delighted to present a major new exhibition by Yayoi Kusama. Spanning the gallery’s three locations and waterside garden, the exhibition features new paintings – including her important, ongoing My Eternal Soul series and signature Infinity Nets – iconic pumpkin sculptures, and immersive mirror rooms, all conceived specially for this presentation.

These new works reflect her lifelong preoccupation with the infinite and sublime, as well as the twin themes of cosmic infinity and personal obsession, as found in pattern and repetition."

It was extremely busy as it is free admission so the queues were almost around the block! But I asked a member of staff and they recommended the best time to attend would be a weekday morning. Coming at a quiet time means getting more time in the rooms as the time you get is dictated by how busy it is! We got 20 seconds in each room. 
Here are some photos of some of the exhibits. However, I would recommend seeing them in person as they are a lot more impressive than my snaps make out!
