"Whilst I will be heading up the interiors and travel content of the blog, I have called in a crack team of foodies, cocktail creators, culture vultures and style queens to teach me how to wear slipper mules, craft buttercream based unicorns, and muddle a mint julep. "

  Busola Evans   As the Malmo & Moss foodie, Busola will be helping us to minimise our muffin tops without maximising our intake of quinoa, pomegranate molasses and spirulina. In her own words, Busola is a healthy-ish eater who enjoys making super-quick, nutritious food but is also friends with chips and loves a red-lip as much as an avocado. Her Instagram feed is full of quick, easy, colourful dishes that you actually want to cook rather than feed to the guinea pig. A Nigerian South London girl currently living north of the river with her husband, six year old daughter and cat Charlie, when she is not flat laying her breakfast, Busola is a freelance journalist. Having worked as a features writer on a Sunday tabloid, edited a celebrity magazine and written for publications such as OK and Grazia, she has discussed baby bumps with Katie Price, been complimented by Simon Cowell (apparently Captain High Waist is a sucker for a lady in a tight red dress) and danced on a table with Mel B.

 The Redgirl and Cocktail Chap  Sorting us out with impeccably styled cracking cocktail combinations will be Redgirl and the Cocktail Chap aka Matt and Lisa Looker. I need some guidance in this department as left alone with a selection of spirits I have a terrible tendency to discover combinations of drinks that should never be put together in the same glass such as the Vomit Petrol Bomb aka Sambuca and Baileys. Married (to each other) and living in South London with their two year old son Teddy, when they are not crushing ice, dabbling in daiquiris and muddling mulberries, Matt is a digital editor and part-time film/TV reviewer and Lisa runs her own Etsy shop selling personalised party decorations. So whilst Lisa is making making cool Scandi inspired bunting Matt is dreaming up questions to ask Brad Pitt. I am guessing he doesn’t lead with my top question for Brad which would be “will you grow your hair long again like it was in Legends of the Fall and let me call you Tristian whilst I lick ice-cream off your naked body.” Having grown up browsing the junk yards and independent shops of Hastings old town, Lisa describes her interiors style as colourful Scandi with a vintage industrial monochrome edge. So our Malmo & Moss Drinks segments will have a Mono-Industrial Candi-Scandi look to them.

 Dan Hull  Providing us with a monthly shot of culture is Dan. I thought I would delegate this one to him because, as the mother of three kids under six, my own cultural round would be limited to the best things to come out of Mr Tumble’s Spotty Bag that week. Dan lives in my home city of Newcastle, which he describes as having pretty much everything you could want from a place bar a COS (because you can have vibrant nightlife, burgeoning café culture, friendly people and soaring architecture but what use is it if you cannot easily purchase Japanese-inspired minimalist utility clothing?). He started his career in womenswear design for Karen Millen but now works in marketing for a digital agency, which sounds infinitely cooler than Rebecca-works-in-environmental-law-tracking-down-rogue-dischargers-of-sewage. He enjoys weekends spent by the coast in Tynemouth, browsing the weekend markets for interiors treasures and stopping in at Rileys Fish Shack for dinner on the beach.

 Emma J  As our resident fashion expert, Emma will be helping us to spot so hot culottes and providing us with flat lays to see us through the seasons without Gok Wan popping out of a bush to stage a fashion intervention on us. She is a North London Italian girl married to possibly the only Stoke City fan to own a Vivienne Westwood pirate coat. She is also the only person I know who can pull off pink velvet loafers with diamante lobsters on without looking like Donatella Versace has been sick on her feet. Growing up as a child of the 80s/90s, Emma’s early fashion influences spanned the two quite opposite extremes of Banarama and Nirvana. Around the Millenium she suffered a nasty case of the All Saints aka the embroidered cargo pant (we all went there, the Appleton sisters have much khaki blood on their hands). Her current style is inspired by classic 70s icons such as Ali MacGaw , Jane Birkin and Diane Keaton .
