Just before Christmas, a new florist Green Hands of Southsea opened on Castle Road which is when I first met Monika Wood. The outside was being painted green which has been a favourite colour of mine for about 3 years and I wanted to venture in when the doors opened to see what kind of style and focus this new florist had to offer.
Roo Abrook is a woman with a rarely seen creative depth. I think this is why her work is so unique and of course collectable! Her style and vision appeal to a very interesting audience, attracting buyers from all over the world.
What better way to gather content for a feature than to chat to a really lovely bloke while he makes you tea and pampers you for three hours? I visited the new, yet to officially open, Southsea Abode salon last week for looooong overdue highlights and a cut.
Towards the end of 2017 saw Bureau of Change move premises to Albert Road. It sits just as you start walking down towards the Kings Theatre.
