Launching soon – your ultimate guide to Soho!
I’m really excited about my latest project – it’s one that’s close to my heart… And literally on my doorstep!
My Soho Times is a blog I created in 2012 (re-branded in 2015) to document my life as a young creative navigating through this dynamic part of London. I saw myself as a bit of a Carrie Bradshaw of Sex and the City – though I quickly came to realise sharing my personal business (and that of my friends – we all have a Samantha in the friends groups!) isn’t really my thing! So I opened it up as a blog to share reviews and stories of people I meet in Soho… Much more my thing!
Summer 2019 was when I got the ah-ha moment, inspired by a friend who created an online mag AKADi, to create a magazine. Then another friend suggested a print magazine. Made sense – Soho is yet to have a dedicated lifestyle publication.
And so it began…
My Soho Times is a FREE quarterly print magazine promoting local businesses, brands and the stories of residents directly to Londoners and tourists alike! My Soho Times will be distributed across the Soho and the W1 area, available at selected shops, restaurants, cafes and key establishments.
Our pilot is OUT NOW!
In less than a week I was able to source advertising, create content, and curate the whole pilot magazine – including design layout (a job I’d gladly outsource to a graphic designer for coming issues!) in time for meetings with local businesses. View the pilot online: http://anyflip.com/xmwmc/fvkn/
Soho is London’s most dynamic district and as a resident living in this thriving part of London which uniquely attracts both Londoners and tourists alike, I wanted to create a tangible guide bringing businesses and brands directly to the consumer. The My Soho Times theme is Live Work Play, and we’ll be providing great content to match!
Our new interactive website will host the online magazine version as well as a blog with daily content.
