A family brand passed down through the generations, Angelus Shoe Polish Company was founded in 1907 by young Greek immigrant Paul T Angelos. Commencing in Chicago, Paul started out shining shoes to save enough money to move to Los Angeles, where he secured a job with a large shoe-shine stand.

Get out your green thumb – it’s time to garden

With the weather all sunshine and cool breezes at the moment, there’s no better time to get into the garden.

And while the garden might be a dirty place (literally), there’s no reason to use scruffy tubs and tools in your green thumb quests. more

Pair boots and jeans to cover cold ankles

Standing at the train station first thing in the morning in the freezing misty air, wearing cuffed jeans and oxfords with a bare ankle is not the most cosy dress option for winter. As you stand chilled to the bone, not even socks could save your toes from numbness. more
