Mrs Marengo’s

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

Istanbul at Night

Istanbul is beautiful at night! The cafes are full and children are playing in the square. It reminds me a little bit of Barcelona. It's relentlessly hot & muggy....

Cafes & Karen Brost

I spotted designer Karen Brost on her scooter! 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 go for drinks at The Botanist on Sloane Square - it's only been open for a short while but it seems quite popular & trendy. How nice to pass the time away chatting about Karen's new Spring/ Summer 09...

Appointments and Book Shopping

Models go on castings on a daily basis, the rest of us make up artists, hair stylists, photographers and stylists go on appointments. It's hard to make the time when you're busy shooting but it's important to meet new people and show your work. You're basically going on mini interviews all day. What's great and not so great is that you might be running all over the city while going to appointments. So I generally use this opportunity to check out any cool shops or cafes. Near Dalston...

Tokyo’s Cat Cafe Calico

I've always liked pets and animals. I think it's an important trait that as a human being, we like to look after other species. So when I heard about the Cat Cafe Calico, I thought what could be better! In Toyko there are now 3 cafes were you can rent a cat for about £3 for an hour or £9 for 3 hours. Takafumi Fukui is the founder of the first and very popular Tokyo's Cat Cafe Calico. There are 14 very clean cats to pet - they are shampooed and brushed regularly and you must have a...

Coffee and Cake

Some mornings it's good to go out and just relax, enjoy the day and think about what a good week it's...

Paris Fashion Week and Rue Cambon

I love hotels. I know I mention this all the time but it's only because it's true. Hotel rooms are so tidy and I guess I just need to be free of my clutter and debris. I also like a hotel that gives you your own little coffee pot at breakfast (I drink tea in the morning at home but when I'm out I always have coffee). When I was a student and in between flats I once shared my friend's chambre de bonne (tiny single room flat usually on the top floor) across from Chanel on Rue Cambon,...

Balenciaga & Browns

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 that money can't buy style? But honestly, with the team at Browns, it doesn't matter if you have no style at all, you just have to have enough money and you'll come out looking so good - just ask for...

Cafes

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...

“Slim Fit 20″ Caffeine Tights

I love Tights Please. I love their over the knee socks with bows and wear them all the time. And now they are offering "Caffeine Tights"! Now, I am a big coffee lover. I love the smell of coffee, coffee beans covered in chocolate and just hanging out in cafes. But tights? I'm a bit skeptic?! HmmmHow do they work? Body temperature causes the release of caffeine microcapsules into the skin increasing the metabolic rate and the burning of fat. This can reduce the circumference of...
