World Food Day 2014 - TrueView Top Picks

image

Happy World Food Day 2014! To celebrate this year’s theme of “Feeding the world, caring for the earth,” we’ve picked a handful of London’s sustainable, environmentally friendly and charitable outlets, which are also great spots for a date. 

Fairly Square - 

Fairly Square is London’s first Fair Trade Bar & Cafe which was setup with one mission: to provide a space in London for people who care about economic, social and environmental justice to hang out, get together and drink great quality ethical produce! By day, Fairly Square is a café and by night, it’s a bar. They also host regular events, so head on down and enjoy their ethical goods! 

Fika - 

This delightful Swedish Cafe/Restaurant in the heart of East London London plays host to a monthly ‘Pay What You Want' night on the 3rd Monday of every month. All food donations will go directly to Headway East London which supports survivors of brain injury across 14 London boroughs. Up for grabs is a fusion of traditional Swedish elements, with touches of flavour from sunnier climes. 

Hackney City Farm (Frizzante) - 

For over 20 years, Hackney City Farm has been giving the local community the opportunity to experience farming right in the heart of the city. Frizzante - the farm’s resident restaurant - provides freshly cooked food using seasonal ingredients often sourced from local farms in Kent, and are also known to use ingredients from the Farms’ own vegetable gardens. Their aim is to provide a local venue unique to East London and educate children with a positive experience of fresh, simple, and rustic foods. 

Jamie Oliver’s Fifteen

In 2002, Jamie Oliver opened Fifteen in London and recruited 15 young apprentices to train alongside a team of 25 professional chefs and mentors. He also set up a charity that would receive all the funds from the restaurant, in order to fund the programme. Twelve years on, Fifteen continues to have the Apprentice Programme at the heart of its busy restaurant operations and serves up a range of British ingredients with a global influence. 

The Hornbeam Centre - 

Named after the locally renowned hornbeam tree, The Hornbeam Centre in Walthamstow aims to empower local residents by encouraging them to live more sustainable lifestyles, and develop local projects focusing on healthy, affordable, sustainable food, waste reduction and conserving resources. Their café serves up a menu of vegetarian-only treats, made from local, organic and fairly traded ingredients. With a friendly and relaxed environment, The Hornbeam Centre is truly a gem to the community.

One Shirt, 4 Dates

Its date night, you have no idea what to wear and he thinks it will be fun to let you know what your dating adventure will entail as close to pick up time as possible. No problem though because this guide will show you how to use one shirt and style it for four different dates: the fancy dinner date, the adorable café date, the fun and flirty outdoor date, and the classic night at the cinema date.

On trend and perfect for Autumn, your staple piece will be the checked shirt (£30, Zara). The most important thing to remember is that you want to be comfortable on your date but look good and feel confident to let your radiant personality shine through so that you can score a second date.

The Dinner Date -

For the fancy dinner date I would suggest going somewhere that has a great vibe and great food. This outfit would be perfect for somewhere like Meat Mission in Hoxton. Dress up the checked shirt with a black leather pencil skirt (£300, Karen Millen), standout earrings (£160, Ek Thongprasert), killer heels (£90, Jeffrey Campbell), and bring some humour to your outfit with this “I Do/I Don’t” clutch (£340, Sophia Webster).

The Coffee Date -

Going to learn about each other over a cup of tea and a croissant? I recommend dressing stylish yet laidback for this type of date. The checked shirt is the perfect companion to ripped denim (£35, River Island) and jewelled necklace (£13, New Look), and cut-out booties (£46, Topshop). Try somewhere like Fernandez & Wells or Milk Bar.

The Outdoor Date -

For those craving adventure in the great outdoors, you can easily rent bikes and ride around London or explore one of the amazing parks in this comfortable outfit. Slip on some trainers (£50, Superga), kick it up a notch with stretch-jersey leggings (£40, Nike) that are easy to move around in, and complete the look with a practical yet fashionable backpack (£20, New Look).

The Cinema Date -

London is full of pop-up cinemas and gigs, such a fun way to learn about one another’s interests by seeing a favourite band play or watch an old favourite film. Feel free to have fun with this outfit and bring your personality into it. I would suggest wearing a skirt (£90, J.Crew) with your checked shirt, prettying up the look with a crystal necklace (£95, J.Crew), and pull it all together with burgundy heels (£50, Zara).

So remember, you always have something to wear, it is how you style your outfit that turns it from a wardrobe panic into a perfect match. Good luck in love!

Top 10 Online Dating Photo Faux-Pas

At TrueView we are here to help and if that means telling you off once in a while, then that is exactly what we will do… all in the name of helping you get more dating success! Today we will be tackling profile pictures. We all know how important our profile picture is, as it’s the first thing that is encountered on our profiles. Our research shows that choosing the right kind of image gives a higher success, and we also see a huge misconception about what people believe to be an attractive image. So listen up, it is time to get real, ditch the topless toilet shot, whip off that wedding dress, and check out our ultimate guide on getting your profile picture library up to scratch!

Boys - 

The topless selfie: Discussing exercise on your dating profile can get you 21 per cent more messages, but stripping off in a desperate attempt to show off your buff body won’t! Ditch the ego and show your good looks with a bit more personality.

The alcoholic: We all enjoy a drink from time to time, but downing a pint in order to show off your Friday fun side makes you look a little to eager for the alcohol.

The ladies man: Being surrounded by bikini-clad hotties on an exotic island really doesn’t class you as popular, it makes you look more like a womanising sex pest.

The mugshot: A smile goes a long way. It’s better than looking like you’re wanted by crime watch.

Ex-girlfriends: A recent study found that mentioning words like ‘divorce’ and ‘separate’ gets men 52 per cent more messages, but little can be said about posing with your arm around your ex. They’re out of your life, move on! 

The sneaky peak: You wouldn’t buy a house just by looking at one picture of its front door, so back-up a little and show your full selfie, snap your fun side and maybe a lifestyle side, but forget showing the downstairs just to make sure you don’t scare away any more viewings.

image

Girls - 

The wedding dress: You haven’t even met yet, so let’s not set off the sirens by posing in the wedding dress that you have already picked out. Big no.

Inspirational quotes: Show off those pearly whites, not just an inspirational quote!

The friends: You might have lots of good-looking and eligible friends, but lets focus on you shall we. At least then we can work out which one is you!

The online bride: The same picture in five different poses makes you look like you’re a bride for sale 

Animals: Cats in love hearts. Animal pictures might seem cute but it reduces your popularity by 53 per cent. Show off your pearly whites, not your kitty’s claws.

image

It’s time to delete those sad selfies, six pack toilet shots, and go au natural! Also, don’t forget to smile, it makes all the difference! And remember: it isn’t about judging a book by its cover, It is about showing the true you. Give TrueView a go. It is 100% FREE. TrueView is here to introduce you to people and help you to start a conversation around mutual interest. Be yourself, and TrueView will do the rest.
