I was lucky enough to go to New York last week for a work trip, it was my first time and I loved it! It was a short but amazing trip with the highlights being a stolen afternoon away from the office wondering around Soho, brunch at Le Pain Quotidien and the high rises glinting in the gorgeous sunshine .

Photos: Elizabeth St boutiques, a rather disappointing red velvet cupcake from Magnolia Bakery, catching a cab on 5th Ave, a basement restaurant in Soho, the New Museum, amazing waffles at Le Pain Quotidien.
Madrid based fashion line Kling is the absolutely adorable E-com we’re loving right now. Just the right balance of cutesy pie charm and studied feminine allure. I love the soft imagery of the site and the humble realistic photos with interesting models, it’s a breath of fresh air in an overly forced and plastic E-com world. Check it out on http://www.Kling.es and tell me what you think! Baci xxx
Some snap shots of what I’v been up to. I’v been really busy with our new apartment and my new job! Milan Design Week finished with an intimate acoustic performance by Bastille which was amazing. Baci xxx
I came across these pics of the Mumtaz Mahal and I wanted to show you this luxurious boutique hotel in Essaouira, Morocco. We had an absolutely amazing time at this gorgeous hotel, the personnel were lovely and the rooftop breakfast was one of the best I’v ever had, the view over the bay and the morning sun was just spectacular.
It’s been extremely busy lately (you can tell by the lack of posts!), I’v been moving house and I’m just about to start an awesome new job! This year has been all about change and progress, how are you finding 2013? Baci xxx
These are my fav beauty essentials right now, I’v got them in mini version for easy traveling!
Face: Kielh’s Ultra Facial cream & cleanser, so hydrating and soothing perfect for winter dryness and stressed skin.
Eyes: Apart from the seriously chic packaging the new Burberry beauty line is full of great products the mascara gives a lot of length to lashes.
Lips: YSL rouge pur couture, pucker-up for full throttle color with out drying out lips and it has some serious staying power as well.
Hair: I love all of REN’s products, they’re %100 natural and smell amazing, their hair products leave your hair shiny and full with out a silicon build up.
I love following the fashion shows voyage from New York – London – Milan – Paris, it’s a full immersion of ‘instant’ show coverage and street style stars. The Marc Jacobs show didn’t have extremely innovative concepts and it wasn’t pushing boundaries, what it did have was some serious attitude that oozed out of every single look and I can’t stop thinking about it. Slinky satins, sequins and metallic glamour in pajama’s, loose fitting coats, dresses, mini shorts and tailored skirts. Apart from the ‘I forgot my pants’ situation, who wouldn’t want to be this sexed-up, pixie haircut babe. She’s a Rolling Stones girlfriend, she prefers dry martini’s over cosmopolitans and has cigarette’s, black coffee and toy boys for breakfast, she’s a Marc Jacobs kinda gal. Baci xxx
This is the gorgeous boutique hotel I stayed in when I was in London last weekend for a work trip. The old world charm of the Rookery was lavish! I was in London for the BAFTA’s and it was a great night, I spotted Quentin Tarantino and Samuel L. Jackson at the after-party which was unreal. Baci xxx
