The Christmas season is here and we are all short on money, so the Voice of London Lifestyle came up with a few festive ideas that you can do at home with friends without having to reach your pockets. Making mulled wine What is Christmas without a mulled wine? If you can’t afford to visit the Christmas markets, don’t worry- you can do it at home and it will be a fun day with friends, even if you succeed or fail. You can get recipes from the Internet and even get £5 bags from a fancy shop like Fortnum & Mason’s to put in your mulled wine recipe. Baking Christmas Cookies Nothing shouts Christmas louder than freshly baked Christmas cookies. The Internet is filled with recipes for everyone who can or cannot bake.

In celebration of opening three new KFC stores in the city of Manchester, two stores shall be, on Monday the 13th November giving away free meals and free limited edition t-shirts. Which, is great for KFC hungry students and even better for the bank. Totally finger lickin' good! However, this news is not so great for those who are living in London. In response to this, Milica has found some restaurants in Central London which are, if better than KFC both price wise and finger licking wise. The best burger (brown tag) and wing (orange tag) places in Central London. Make a trip which will not break the bank but will leave your stomachs full and wanting more!   Words: Milica Cosic | Subbing: Kate Kulniece

Nowadays, eating in restaurants has become more like a routine for convenience rather than a treat. I remember the time when fast food was a big festive, occasion for me and my family. Usually, we would go to restaurants to celebrate something important. Now what I find cool was to see my mother make her own bread or granola for us, or making our own butter even though that time I was sure fast food was much better and trendy than boring meals at home. But ever since my move to London, homemade food (especially my mom’s food) has become something that I crave for all the time. Eating fast food or going to restaurants used to be exciting but it is not anymore. Why is that so? Everyone knows that dining out has many advantages, especially for such a lazy person like me!

London Living Wage is set above £10 for the first time and Mayor calls for more inclusive actions from businesses in the capital. Mayor of London Sadiq Khan has announced early this Monday, a 4.6% increase in London Living Wage from £9.75 to £10.20 per hour. Choosing the living the wage is a voluntary move from companies. In London there has been an increase of almost 500 in the number of accredited employees who backed the living wage over the last year. This resulted in over 1,500 companies based in the capital paying employees with what is considered to be the right salary for people to make ends meet. National minimum wage, however, remains at £7.50 an hour for over-25s and £7.05 for 21 to 24 years old. The move is supported by Living Wage Foundation, who “believes a fa
