Urban Junkies London
04. 12. 20 ISSUE 1
Happy Friday. We hope everyone had an okay lockdown; we know we’re collectively all hoping that was the last one, but things – either way – are well and truly looking up.

In today’s back-to-school-pre-holidays-catch-up-almost-happy-new-year newsletter, we’re bringing you news of what we got up to in lockdown(s) – the launch of our new platform, UJ Select.
Still part of UJ, we’re seeing UJ Select as an extension of our editorial. A place where we’re going to have experiences, services and products from people and brands we love, for sale.

The launch selection is really to give you a taste of the categories we will have: wellbeing, food and drink, bespoke products, limited-edition pieces, pre-loved collector’s items, collaborations, exclusive services, Ibiza finds, music, and some charitable initiatives, too. We’ll be adding more travel and events in the new year as well.
A real focus for this marketplace is also going to be the people behind each thing listed – everyone has been hand selected, and are truly people and products we believe in. We hope you get a chance to read their stories.

We also of course want to do our part to support local and independents. If you see any big brands in here, it’s because they’re part of a smaller initiave, too. And have supported us, for years. And we like them.

Our aim is to always have things you can’t find anywhere else here. If you think you have something relevant, or would like to collaborate, please do get in touch. We can’t wait to see what we can do together.
Now, without further ado – it would be great if you could look through UJ Select. We’d love to know what you think.

We’re feeling quite sentimental about being able to launch something new right now – what an absolute privilege – and we couldn’t do it without your support. So thank you, as always, for reading UJ. Here’s to new beginnings. For all of us.


Taryn and Team UJ/UJ Select
Barrafina Mariscos
Ts and hoodies you need in your life
You know we love Barrafina! So to celebrate the launch of Barrafina Mariscos, the new seafood restaurant in their Drury Lane location, we partnered with Bristolian graffiti artist Inkie to make some merch. Drinking prawn = good times.  
Mickey Mouse
 A collector’s item. This one is in the UK (most are in the States so it’s a hassle importing them), works here, and is in great condition too. We love him.
Daniel Reynolds
Instant room elevation
Daniel is a CSM MA grad (Fashion Design), who’s been living in NY for the past 18 years and has had quite the career. Art has always played an important part in his practice, and lockdown allowed him to focus on creating these large, moving pieces. They’re incredible!  
Joe Goddard
Bespoke Playlists
 We need a dance! Even if it’s just in our living room. Yes, Joe’s a busy man – Hot Chip, 2 Bears, Greco-Roman, to name a few – but as a UJ exclusive, he can also make a bespoke playlist, just for you. Give us a few details and he’ll come up with the goods. And if you’ve ever heard him DJ, you’ll know he’s a whizz at creating a sound that truly suits the crowd.
Mexican Bag, Curated by Bad Sports
Happiness in a bag
This bag is so great! Liam Davy from the brilliant brand Bad Sports (ex-Hackney Mexican restaurant, now does pop ups all over; we love his branding) has put together a bag for us with some of his Mexican faves and essentials, and we’ve added in some of our favourites too – like edible glitter for tacos from Snackbar and salsa macha from Tacos Padre.  
Passione Vino x UJ Magnum Boxes
Best of the boxes
 When we saw Luca’s boxes (the colours! The contents!), we knew we had to make one with him. And you know what we came up with? Magnum boxes! (The wines of course.) Three different boxes: red, white and sparkling, with cheeses and other fun things, too. We’d like one under the tree please.
Jade Jagger Jewellery
Classic unisex rosaries
These are classics. They are heavy, premium, unisex, and look good with everything. Part of Jade’s signature collection, we’d kind of forgotten how much we love skulls; we remember now. These are pieces you’ll have forever.  
Hampers for the Oldies
We need your help!
Age UK Westminster have said it’s going to be a very tough Christmas for the elderly. Which is why their annual Gifting Hampers to Seniors Initiative is more important than ever. It’s a program they run purely on contributions, so please help us donate to raise funds for this amazing cause. ‘Cause no one deserves to be alone, without a bit of joy, over the holidays. And if you’re a brand that might have product to donate, or anything else, we’d love to hear from you too.


Thank you.
