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!
Have a look at my listing on AirBnb and let me know if you have any questions!
Hope to see you here soon!

I think most people who know me, know I am a sucker for Acne, always have been, always will. I love their contemporary yet minimal take on style whiteout trying to hard and losing their brand feel.
Their Spring/Summer 2014 is no exception and might even be one of my favourite collections of them so far. I tried to select only a few of the looks I like the most, but literally like ALL of them this year.
Below is my attempt to a (not so short) shortlist:
all from acnestudios.com
What’s your fave look?

A little preview of my first tattoo.
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.

I was so happy to receive this beautiful gift today from the incredibly talented Paul-John Titterton, who dedicated the first piece of his collection to me.
Paul-John is a London based designer with experience in graphic design as well as retail and fashion (working for brands such as The Kooples). I love how both these talents show through in his minimal, clean cut but very strong design. Futuristic minimalism with a hint of rock’n roll, it couldn’t suit me better
Can’t wait to wear this black kimono-style, cotton canvas jacket with a nice clean shaped silky dress or dressed down with some straight boyfriend jeans.
For inquiries about the brand Lé or other work by the talented Paul-John Titterton please contact: email@example.com

Nothing wrong with dreaming away with some good indian summer memories. One of my favourite ones lately is the first weekends of September. We went to the Dalston Roof Park , just around the corner of our new place, and enjoyed an amazing Southern American syle lazy lunch, organised by The Art of Dining, a young company that combines food, set design and art (anybody who knows me even a little bit would know I am a sucker for a combination like that!)
It definitely felt like the laziest lunch in London town that Sunday, with five courses, picnic baskets filled with treasures, old romantic novels and slightly Southern American style music in the background. This all combined with cocktails, East-London views and a good, after summer sun made it an incredible, chilled day. Exactly how a Sunday should be.
On the menu:
–Baked beans slow cooked bean and molasses soup served in an American biscuit bowl
–Corn on the cob served Mexican style, with sour cream, parmesan, cumin, chilli and lime- Wilted bacon and shrimphot salad–Ribs’n’slaw, lamb ribs with Moroccan style slaw and pickles
– Sweet potato ice cream with a ginger bread flake
(Definitely check out their website for some more pop-up culinair fests to come: www.theartofdining.co.uk)
Went for a coffee at Beyond Retro on the way.

After the lazy lunch, we decided to do some low effort activities as we where too full to move. We went to check out some galleries at the Hackney Wicked Festival and just enjoyed coffee, drinks and art.
Let’s all hope for more sunny weekends to come, or just dream away with the ones we had.

I have to admit, while I used to post very frequent, the previous months of my live have been a mystery for my blog followers. It might seem that I have been lazy, and yes, as a personal blogger, that might be a correct presumption. But I haven’t been lazy in general, believe me. From trips all over Europe, to meeting the Kills, freelancing as reporter at London Fashion Week, hot festivals, cold showers, magazine parties, big sample sales, and enjoying the London (Indian) Summer in general, I have been busy.
The next weeks I will update you and reveal some of these mysteries again. Not all verry accurate or big, but notthing wrong with re-living some good old memories.
But for now, I will leave you with one other mystery that will give you sweet dreams until mine will be revealed…
