HMDG girls' favourite magazine The Stylist has a sister site, which has produced a list of the 20 Books You Must Read. Favourites like To Kill a Mockingbird are featured, along with a few surprises. Sign up to emeraldstreet to receive the list, or choose one from our own favourites.

The church next door often has second hand book sales too, for those who love a bargain.

The art world's smallest canvas

You may never have considered your fingertips much. Clean, hopefully, trimmed, perhaps polished or painted occasionally. That may be about to change..

This September, Nailphilia is showcasing an exhibition which looks at the fingertips as a habitat for art. Stunning, thought-provoking and outlandish designs are displayed at's execution room on Vyner St in Hackney... well worth a look.
