Wintour is coming

Wintour is coming

Please excuse the lame pun, but it had to be done. I can’t believe that November is almost over…just a few more days and winter has officially arrived, and what better time to indulge in some all black everything than in winter? Despite the fact that Anna Wintour would never dress in all black, I can’t help but love the… Read more →

My Favourite Spot

My Favourite Spot

Back in March I used to love going down to the River Thames when the tide was low to take outfit pictures. It’s possibly one of the most peaceful spots in London. The only other person I’ve ever come across down there is an elderly lady, who plays catch with her dog. But other than that, I was always by… Read more →

Iconic luxury boutique Feathers recently celebrated 40 years in Knightsbridge, and I was there to celebrate with them.

The Snow Queen

The Snow Queen

One of my favourite stories as a child was that of the Snow Queen, a fairy tale written by Dutch poet Hans Christian Andersen. The tale represents the struggle between good and evil, with the beautiful and fierce Snow Queen as the villain, and sweet Gerda as the heroine, who frees Kai from the spell of the troll-mirror splinter with… Read more →

Disaronno Wears Versace

Disaronno Wears Versace

About one and a half weeks ago I was kindly invited to the exclusive launch party of the Disaronno limited edition bottle designed by Versace. Isn’t that so exciting? For those of you, who haven’t heard of Disaronno yet, it is an Italian liqueur flavoured with herbs and fruits soaked in apricot kernel oil. I hadn’t tried it before –… Read more →

Good Things Come In Pairs

Good Things Come In Pairs

Good things come in pairs; especially in the fashion industry. Kim and Kanye West (the king and queen of colour-coordinated outfits), Olivia Palermo and Johannes Huebel, and Victoria and David Beckham – each of them being influential style icons on their own. But the real magic happens when they make an appearance with their partners in crime. Together they become… Read more →

Blanchette

Blanchette

Who else is majorly annoyed by the no-bookings policy of some of London’s hippest culinary temples? Not cool restaurant managers…not cool. I’m not British, queuing is not part of my chemistry. In fact, I hate queuing with a passion, and outright refuse to queue for food. Now it all wouldn’t be such a big problem if my friends shared my… Read more →

Palm Trees And Green Spaces

Palm Trees And Green Spaces

When I think of London, I think skyscrapers, traffic, endless commutes, restaurants, nightlife…the list is endless. However, what I always seem to forget about London are its countless green spaces. In comparison to other cities of a similar size, London is the greenest of them all…worldwide! Green spaces in London cover nearly 40%, i.e. about 173km2 of greater London. Almost… Read more →
