JFK & Jackie Kennedy’s Wedding in 1953

I love the effortless style of these photos. But also, on a more personal level, the giddy, care-free excitement clearly emanating from the young couple and their happy guests.

Ashton Kutcher

Incredibly cheesy, but also something in Kutcher’s breathless enthusiasm definitely rings true (albeit lost on the hysterical Teen Choice 2013 audience).

Present

Refusing to let go of past events, whether negative or positive, means throwing away some part of your daily energy budget. If you start losing evergy and don’t do antyhing about it, you will inevitably develop a weakness in your physical body. Accept the stage of life that you are in now, live for today, and let go of the past and future.

Foxxy Squirrel

Penelope Sacorafou founded Fox & Squirrel three years ago, an innovative business which creates lifestyle walks covering London’s eclectic fashion, vintage, art, architecture and food scenes. All their bespoke walks are led by creative professional experts, someone who is fully merged into London, just like foxes and squirrels. The business celebrates local communities, businesses and culture; it promotes young entrepreneurs and it supports upcoming talent.

Earlier this year, I’m proud to say that I joined Penelope’s team as Beauty Editor and I’ve even created my own foxy Chelsea walk with talented actress Olivia Grant.  I’ve recently got together with Penelope to ask some questions about her and then business:

Tell me the ways in which the business is eco-friendly, green minded and community spirited.

We aim for our work to be carbon neutral and digitally based. The designers and artists which feature on our walks are involved in sustainable causes, whether upcycling fashion or using sustainable materials. The merchandise bought on the walks are always one off pieces, combatting the ‘fast fashion’ so often seen on the High Street. Most of the artists we work together with feature environmental, sustainable and socially aware subject matter. Our walks are usually on foot or we use public transport if necessary. We want to encourage people to enjoy the city in an alternative way, celebrate local community and appreciate London’s eclectic cultural landscape.

Tell us about your foxy team

I love the fact that Fox & Squirrel hosts a community of young, talented people, each of whom are passionate about their individual fields and industry. And it really shows in the unique content which they each provide in our newsletters, for the website and as guides for walks. In particular, Natasha Hoare has done fabulously on her Art Walks and was recently voted as London’s Best Guided Walk by the Guardian newspaper.

You recently did a seriously exciting collaboration with Guts and Garters. The shop, which you curated in Covent Garden, celebrated art and design, exploring the recurring relationship between the two universally shared concepts, Sex and Death. Have you any new exciting projects in the pipeline?

We have arranged an exciting collaboration with Cass Art, London’s Favourite Art Material Distributors – who are sponsoring a series of art and photography walks using Lomography Cameras. We also have a collaboration coming up with St Morgan’s Hotels, where we’ve redesigned the electric room keys for the Sanderson and St Martin’s Place and arranged for London illustrators to create guided walks, starting from each hotel location.

Do you see the walks as the centre of your business or do you see the business evolving into more of a promoter of culture and the arts?

Since we started two years ago there has been a massive rise in published walks in London and we were real pioneers. We could indeed become, in the future, a hub and focus more upon collaborations and events but the walks will always be a great love of all of ours: it’s physical, it’s visual and it’s FUN!

I love your unique walks. Any exciting ones coming up in the near future?

We’re planning a series of one to one educational walks, meeting all the clever people who work behind the scenes. I’m also really excited about a food walk we have in the pipeline Simon Wroe in Brixton, tracing the African and Jamaican roots of the market, positioning the produce within their historical origins.

F&S feature guest walks on your bi-weekly newsletters. So, Penelope, I’m interested to know, screw the guests, what’s your dream walk?

Ha! I really want to hiking in the North Pole. But, I suppose more realistically, I love Paris, which combines an iconic architectural landscape with a villagey, local feel. Being Greek, I also love the diverse and historical city of Athens; on one corner you’ll discover a monument which is 1000 years old but on the next you’ll find something contemporary.

I always think this can say a lot about someone: what’s your favourite band, designer and restaurant?

Designer: Corrine Nielsen

Restaurant: A toss up between St John’s and Barrafina

Band: Band of Buriers, a contemporary twist on Leonard Cohen and Bob Dylan
