Hollywood Focus

Contemporary fashion photographer Terry Richardson might be recognised for his controversial actions both behind and in front of the camera, but a new exhibition is hoping to shed a different light on the talented artist. Terrywood is a love letter to Richardson's hometown of Hollywood, and features a selection of images ranging from beautiful to kitsch: neon lights to cheeseburgers, words taken out of the context to the requisite nudes, the exhibition of 25 photographs will take place at the Ohwow Gallery in Los Angeles and is running through March 31. oh-wow.com

Watch the Birdie

Golf enthusiasts can take advantage of the spring weather at the luxurious One&Only Palmilla resort in Los Cabos, Mexico, which recently decked their offerings out with a PGA Tour Academy. Modelled after Ponte Vedra Beach's flagship academy, it features state-of-the-art equipment including high-speed cameras and video analysis to improve swing and short games. A variety of programmes are on offer for all levels, while guests can practice on one of the resort's three, nine-hole courses. palmilla.oneandonlyresorts.com

Pages of punk

The legacy of '70s punk band The Ramones has only strengthened over the years, their pop sensibilities and rebellious attitude acting as a blueprint to many a modern rock group's aesthetic. Unfortunately, part of the music community's respect is due to the band's careless nature, which in the past decade or so, has claimed the lives of three of its four founding members. Guitarist Johnny Ramone defined their breakneck sound, and eight years after his death, the late musician's autobiography is finally being released next month. Commando: The Autobiography of Johnny Ramone is slapdash affair of musings, anecdotes and photos selected by his widow Linda, offering a rare insight into musician's influential method. johnnyramone.com

Steps ahead

Luxury brand Tod's has always been known for its creative collaborations, but its latest might be the brand's most inspired yet. The No_Code collection sees the Italian label working closely with Dazed & Confused founding editor Jefferson Hack, whose longstanding desire to create the perfect shoe has resulted in pairs that are suitable for both men and women, and for both formal and casual occasions. Available in four styles, each based on a seasonal colour palette, the shoes are modern yet timeless. tods.com

Walking Tall

Johnnie Walker Scotch whisky might not hold the prestige it once did, but the brand's history can't be forgotten. Awarded a Royal Warrant in 1934 by King George V, Walker is keeping the regal connection alive by issuing a Diamond Jubilee bottle under its original name, John Walker & Sons. Celebrating Queen Elizabeth's 60th year since her ascension, the limited-edition blend is a made up of rare malt and grain Scotch whiskies from the year 1952. Bottled in a Baccarat crystal diamond-shaped decanter and housed in a cabinet crafted with wood from two of the Queen's estates, only 60 editions will be produced, with each retailing for GBP100,000. johnniewalker.com
