Good-bye to DailyCandy London…



To check a daily newsletter from DailyCandy is one of the first thing I do every morning and what is new in town (see my past entry). However, just the day before yesterday on a leap day, I received the last one, saying good-bye from DailyCandy without a reason or explanation, all of a sudden. I have no clue what happened to DailyCandy – no information I found on the internet. However, the website of DailyCandy London edition is still working, and there are some up-to-date online articles of March 1 & 2, though these are not London-specific info, but about a film and US online shops.

DailyCandy gave me a lot of useful information about London, such as opening of chic restaurants and cool shops, fun events and some cute stuffs to buy. Very sad. Thank you DailyCandy, you helped me a lot to know London better, and made me adore this city!


SMUG Lifestyle Store @ Camden Passage

SMUGは、エンジェルの有名なアンティーク・ストリート、カムデン・パッセージにある小さなお店。前は通ったことがあるのだけれど、今日、Daily Candyのメールマガジンで紹介されたのを機に、行ってみた。センス良く飾られた、白やパステルカラーのレトロな家具が並ぶ2フロアの店内には、手作りのぬいぐるみ、クッション、ティータオル(洗い物を拭く布巾)、そしてミッドセンチュリーの食器類やグラス等、オーナーで、インテリア/グラフィック・デザイナーのLizzie EvansがデザインしたSMUGブランドや、自身がセレクトした、女性が好きそうなものが所狭しと並んでいる。今日は取りあえず、素敵なデザインのオリジナルカード(1枚£2.50)を2枚買った。自分用にはちょっと値段が高いかな、と思うものもあるけれど、ちょっと気の利いたプレゼントを探すのに使えそう。

ちなみにDaily Candyは、お店やレストラン、イベント、セールなど、タウン情報を発信するウェブサービスで、ニューヨークやロス等アメリカの主要11都市の他、ロンドン版がある。サイトに登録、好きな都市を選ぶと、月曜から金曜日まで毎日メールマガジンが届く。ロンドン情報を手に入れるのにとても便利なサイト。

SMUG is a cosy lifestyle store on Camden Passage, a famous antique street in Angel. I passed by some times, but I went inside for the first time, as Daily Candy talked about the store today. Inside of 2-floor store, chicly decorated with retro furniture in white or pastel colors, is full of goodies that women love – handmade soft animals, cushions, tea towels, mid-century glassware and kitchenware etc – designed or carefully selected by the owner and interior/graphic designer Lizzie Evans. I bought two cute cards today (£2.50@). Though some of the products are bit pricy for myself, it is a great place to find an unique and sophisticated present for your loved ones.

Daily Candy is a web service, delivering what’s going on in the city of your choice – restaurants, stores, services, events, sale and everything– via daily e-mail newsletter and its website. Currently the service covers 11 major US cities such as New York and LA, as well as London, the only city outside USA. Daily Candy is very useful for me o get an idea for my blog, as well as to look for a nice place to hang out.
