Love To All of You

I would like to start this week off by reminding myself, and you, that all the tools for being the happiest, healthiest and most loving version of ourselves are readily available to each and everyone of us. Continue reading

I must have posed for over 40 works of art for Him; films, photos, paintings, sculptures… The man is nothing if not multi faceted. Especial attention was given to the short film Dans ma Chambre/Dans ma Cherie. As is indicative by the name, it was a rather explicit encounter of me, and our sex life. But you know, all in the name of art…

Kung Fu Courthouse

DSC_0943 (2)

I did  Kung Fu in an old courthouse. Correction; an old, haunted, courthouse. A friend of mine has bought this historic building, Old Sessions House, in Farringdon, and it’s about to become a wine bar, restaurant, roof top pool terrace, food court; place I wanna be! I got a grand tour of the building on Saturday, and seeing as my friend is a bit of a Kung Fu aficionado, we busted some moves (I still have bruises on my legs) in the area where the judges used to eat, feast, gossip. We also meditated, sang some country songs and talked about Tantra camps in India (how is this not on everyone’s travel itinerary?) Continue reading

My friend Aleksa recently asked me to join her and her brand House of Summer in a new project called Fashion Revolution. It is a global incentive to shed light on aspects of the fashion industry that are otherwise easily overlooked. Where do my clothes actually come from? Continue reading

KTZ Afterparty at Sanderson

P1070619I like to consider myself a bit of a show off, but last night, I found I had met my equals, in terms of peacocking. Super cool brand Kokon To Zai (KTZ) had their post-show after party at the Sanderson hotel on Berner Street, and the fashion crowd gathered in all its glory. KTZ makes possibly the coolest street clothes you’re likely to see in a while- I’m a particular fan of the bomber jackets. It all started with DJ Sasko Bezovski opening up the retail stores “Kokontozai” in Paris and London, and these creative superstores later grew into a collaboration with Marjan Pejovski, thus birthing the label KTZ. The show earlier that day at Somerset House was a big success and now, after a strenuous fashion week, the peeps wanted to party. Continue reading

#Dontbeacoward No. 1

Fotor0204132433Regret. A word full of negative connotations, anxiety and lost opportunities. A word that has no place in my vocabulary. It was subjected to a swift and sudden Tarantino- style execution when I realized that regret was in fact, a thing for cowards. Regretting something means that you Continue reading

David Bailey at NPG

P1060788I was on my way to Shoreditch House for lunch with Nicky, one of my oldest friends in London, when she called and told me we’d been invited last minute for a private press view for the new David Bailey exhibition at The National Portrait Gallery. Did I wanna go? Hellz yeah! Nicky runs the hugely successful It’s Rude to Stare website, which always offers fun and cool tips about what to do and see in London, so I always trust her recommendations !

The exhibition, which opens tomorrow the 6th of February and runs until the 1st of June, is called Bailey’s Stardust. And Stardust there is… There are over 300 portraits (making this the biggest David Bailey exhibition ever) and the majority of photos are of celebs. Stars everywhere! Kings and Queens of glamour and decadence such as The Rolling Stones, Jerry Hall, Kate Moss, Jack Nicholson, Catherine Bailey, Jean Shrimpton… to name but a few. What strikes me about this exhibition is the extreme variety and width of his photography. Yes, in one room you see the glamorous celebrities, but in the next you are transported to the other side of the spectrum: pictures from the extreme 80’s famine in Africa made me shiver.

We took our time and wandered about talking and musing over the wonderful photography. Other members of the press took advantage of the fact that I gladly posed for pictures in front of the actual pictures… yep, you guessed it, it turned into a pose-a-ton. Afterwards, we headed over to Hotel Chocolat in Covent Garden for coffee… but who can say no to their delicious chocolate? We’re only human, after all!
