If you need a little break from all your Christmas shopping, London is full of wonderful cafes. 53 Lexington Street, Soho, London W1F 9AN

I love girls on scooters – maybe because it’s something I rarely saw in Toronto, but when I moved to London you see loads of scooters and even more in Barcelona. A girl with a dress, heels and zooming around London – so cool. We decided to…Continue reading

Models go on castings on a daily basis, the rest of us make up artists, hair stylists, photographers and stylists go on appointments.

I went to see the Balenciaga Spring 2008 preview at Browns. It’s so fun to drink champagne and eat rose petal flavour macaroons from La Durée. Who says fashion isn’t a nice life – well actually nobody does! Anyway fashion is great, of course it’s greater if you have more money, but don’t we say…Continue reading

Saw this cafe while on my way to meet some friends in Soho. It looked quite cute inside, you could smell the coffee and they had lots of pin up girl postcards!
