New York I Love You. Day. 2

The first full day we spent in New York was a Saturday, we woke up extremely early  due to jet lag (apparently it's a real thing...) and headed from Williamsburg to Manhattan Lower East Side for breakfast. 

New York I Love You. Day. 1

I finally got around to organise the pictures from my New York trip in September. It was my first time in the city and I can say I was in love! 

Mademoiselle Privé: Inside the world of Gabrielle Chanel

The Saatchi Gallery is currently showing Chanel's Mademoiselle Privé, an exhibition about the life and legacy of Gabrielle Coco Chanel. A journey through the origins of CHANEL's creations capturing the personality and irreverent spirit of Mademoiselle Chanel (played by Geraldine Chaplin) and Karl Lagerfeld. The exhibition begins with a reconstruction of the mirrored staircase above Chanel’s salon which leads us to several rooms linked by white passageways edged by black trim at the floor and ceiling. An exhibition light on historical detail and big on brand experience, it takes up the entire three floors of the Saatchi gallery, beginning with a garden designed to represent key influences in Coco’s life.

Sunrise, Sunset: King Krule

Sunrise, Sunset is a NOWNESS series of dawn and dusk performances by rising and established musicians created by music filmmaking collective Yours Truly. The above video is a performance of one of my favourite british artists, King Krulefilmed at the closing of a dusty Los Angeles day“Cementality” is a highlight of the 19-year-old artist's acclaimed debut album, 6 Feet Beneath The Moon. Look out for NOWNESS' bespoke dusk and dawn collaborations with Yours Truly during the coming months on their website here.

Louis Vuitton Series 3

Louis Vuitton: Series 3 exhibition is a multi-sensorial experience that allows us to explore and understand the creative process of the mind behind the brand - Nicolas Ghesquière. The exhibition uses technology to get you inside Ghesquière's mind and show you different steps of creative process, and it's so impactful that sometimes it's almost impossible to understand what's real and what's a projection of reality.


This October the 2nd, was the launch of Uniqlo and Lemaire collaboration. The former Hermès designer and the Japanese brand have come together to create a capsule collection of timeless elegance for everyday essentials. The French label brings Parisian cool to Uniqlo.

Above you can see some of my favourite pieces from the collection, mainly the knitwear pieces (nothing like getting cozy in cashmere when it’s cold outside). You can still find some of the pieces available online and in store at Uniqlo Regent St.

Dream House #12

When decorating I've always been inspired by a minimalistic style with very edited displays. Although I love that particular style I find those sort of decors a bit un-livable and lacking of personality. So lately I've been loving spaces where through the decor you can find some details of the people who live in those spaces. And I found this flat truly inspiring! 

Modern Details

Finding a new pair of reading glasses has been on my 'to-do' list for months. I suffer from farsightedness from a very young age and therefore glasses have been on my face for most of my of my life. Luckily for the past few years my sight has improved considerably which means I now only need glasses for reading/tv/computer. I already owned a pair of black frames that I usually leave at work so they don't get damaged (or worse, lost) but lately I felt I should get a second pair to have at home for when I'm working at the blog on my laptop or watching a movie in the evenings. I was very happy when Firmoo got in touch with me and asked me to review their glasses and very kindly sent me a pair of my choice.
