Patisserie review

-La Perle-

Best for Lunch Breaks and Cakes


As someone who works in a nearby office, I had already heard a lot of positive things about this little gem of a patisserie before going there for lunch with colleagues and friends, or sampling some of their cakes to take away.

La Pearle is an airy and light establishment with friendly staff and Wi-Fi access. This corner café is easy walking distance for a n...

Battle of The Seasons (Part II) Spring's Tale

Spring's Tale

That morning Dawid's eyelids flinched before gradually opening as he felt the warmth of a new sun creep its way through the open barn door and up his bare back until the cloud was completely gone and he was bathed in soft morning light. His eyes stung from the previous night and he could not lift his head, heavy as it was from the all too familiar excesses of yesterday. Still though, it weighed less upon him than the sorrow...

A Day Out in Sheffield for Under a Tenner

Street Art tour

This month I was asked to write about what I would choose to do in Sheffield for the day for under a tenner. Easy I thought; if you are new to the city then a fun thing to do is spend a day with your camera phone, checking out and documenting the amazing street art this city now has to offer. Berlin gets much kudos for its political angst and graffiti ridden streets and buildings but this year I have been comparing the artwork here to...

Play Ball - by Toby Newton for Sync City Magazine

With this month's general theme revolving around health and wellbeing in Sheffield, what better time to look at the SBL. Sheffield's Basketball League is going from strength to strength with new teams from across Sheffield and around joining to compete over three divisions and opportunities for new players to get involved or get back into basketball at special sessions and chances to get i...

Film Review - The Full Monty


Ok, so I had the misfortune of sitting through the whole of the Hollywood Jock-fest, 'Magic Mike' recently, albeit with my amazing girlfriend for company. It was about male strippers-cum-dancers and the script was about as good as you may have already guessed it wasn't! However, around about the same period, I also had the pleasure of watching 'The Full Monty' for the first time since moving to Sheffield yea...

Django Unchained Film Review

Django Unchained


Tarantino's latest offering is set in the southern US, before the Civil War, and the movie is essentially about a slave becoming a 'kick-ass cowboy' and riding out for revenge. Well, he actually sets out to rescue and be reunited with his wife, but it's hardly a spoiler to say there's going to be some revenge involved...come on, this is Tarantino. For whatever reason, he seems slightly obsessed with the sub...

Seven Psychopaths Film Review

Film Review - Seven Psychopaths


This picture stars Collin Farrell as a down on his luck screenwriter but you soon realise there are plenty of other stars. There were more than a few occasions throughout where I sensed the dog was going to steal the show but I should have trusted my instincts.


From the moment Christopher Walken first appears you almost can’t help but smile to yourself in the knowledge that he is...

Battle of The Seasons (Part I) - Winter's Tale

Winter's Tale

The luscious green of the fields and forests had long since been replaced by the pale and weary image of a land stricken by Winter's frosty breath: the soil hardened by her icy chill; the trees lonely and lifeless, bereft of leaves, berries and bird song. Both were longing for the protection a blanket of snow would surely bring, but it was too cold to snow. Instead they remained exposed, lamenting the loss of the sun, as if awaiting th...
