Still alive

I know, I haven’t shown my face for a long time, but that doesn’t mean I haven’t been busy. I’m currently working on a lot of different projects both at my job as Senior Designer at Liberty and within my freelance presence, Studio Lé.

Also, I am know offering a lovely room in my own ran Bed & Breakfast, in the cool East-London area. So always welcome if you want to experience a bit of real London life!

Keep aiming

A little preview of my first tattoo.

Arrow Tattoo on Snakeskin Jacket, by Vagabond Studio in Hockney, London

I got this little arrow hand-poked last week to remind me to keep aiming forward. As last year has been a very heavy one (losing somebody very near to me etc) I wanted something that reminds me to keep my head up and focus on the future, whilst not let me forget this year. An arrow can only be shot by pulling it backward. So when life is dragging you back with difficulties & shit, it means that it’s going to launch you into something great. So just focus, and keep aiming.

I decided to get it hand-poked as well, to make the experience as personal as possible. The lovely Andy at Vaganbond tattoo studio in Hackney, East London, just around the corner of our place, did a wonderful job.

Song Saa Private Island

This is my last post about my trip to Cambodia a few weeks ago. I decided to dedicate a whole post to Song Saa, as this place has made an enormous impression on me.

I was a bit sceptical when I heard we where going to a private, luxurious resort at the end of our trip. Cambodia is an amazing country, but it is still in full development. A lot of people are still living on the streets or getting under paid. So when I heard about our last place of residence of our trip, I didn’t know this would be very ethical correct after traveling through the country and seeing some amazing, but also worrying things

But all my prejudices disappeared when I arrived at the beautiful Song Saa Island. Not only does everything look part of the nature and blends in perfect with the Island flora, the idea of the island, besides being a resort, is research and the owners are protecting the whole area.

They have a team of 4 people working with government and non-government organisations, conservation authorities and community leaders to ensure Song Saa Island never loses the things that make it so special. (including a marine reserve covering one million square metres, where it’s forbidden to fish and is used for research)

To ensure their guests realize the value of what they see when they visit, they currently have two researchers, linked to Australia’s James Cook University, working on a field guide to Song Saa’s marine life. (read more about its sustainability here)

Besides  all of this, another thing I noticed is how beautifully every little detail on the island is designed. When I talked to the staff about how much I loved all the materials used and that I clearly saw there was thinking behind the interior of our villa, they told me Malita, one of the owners is actually a Interior Designer. She clearly has an amazing eye for detail and material and I really admire how she created not only a luxurious resort, but a whole experience  with these pure, natural materials, without losing any of the islands features.

As you can tell ,I could talk about Song Saa for ages, (and I didn’t start about the amazing food yet!) but I recommend to go to their website to read more (and definitely check out the resort photos, as I feel I didn’t capture enough of its beauty on mine)

We had our own jungle villa, with private infinity pool, sea view, outside and inside showers, an amazing kitchen and much more:

Comptoir London

I had an amazing night last night, having diner at East-London based converted warehouse restaurant Bistrotheque, and going to the Dash Magazine Launch and after party. More about all of this later, as I am still recovering now ( = having to much cake and coffee at work).

So I thought I’d share one of my favorite central London get-away places now, love to go there on days like these (think: hungover working days)

Comptoir has a couple of branches in London including Wigmore Street, just around my corner. They serve well priced Lebanese food in a beautiful and colorful atmosphere.  I agree with Time Out, as they called this one of the best places in London to have a meal under £10 . (BEST humus in town!)

Hows your morning?

Oh Sunny London

It might be freezing like crazy outside, but suprisingly enough this morning I got woken up by the sun. Notthing feels better then waking up, in the middle of London, in white fresh sheets, with the sun in your eyes.

Some might say spring is far away, but I know better…
