Orange: Inspired by Fendi

My brief: Orange.

What better place to find inspiration for orange than Fendi's AW11 collection? Those beautiful orange tights with blue and khaki combo looks better than black for Autumn.

This knitted necklace is for a good friend, enjoy! xx

Spring Cycling!

Now that it is officially spirng, I have finally got back on my bicycle after a cold winter.
Along with my wardrobe I also want to update my bike. I have been eyeing the Carrie Bicycle basket from Design House Stockholm ever since I saw a cute girl in Sweden riding along with one on her bike. I like the green in concept but I think I will go with black.

Design House Stockholm also have other great accesories for the home like Block Lamp and Whale Tong. The flagship store in London is on King's Road but you can also stop by the bottom floor of Selfridges for their concession.

For Japan with Love

I have wanted to go to Tokyo for as long as I can remember dreaming about the places I would travel one day. My boyfriend and I decided 3 months ago that we would finally book the trip of a lifetime and go for my 30th birthday on April 4 this year. We have now regrettably cancelled our trip.

I have not been able to look away from the Live BBC news feed since the earthquake and feel helpless as things get worse and worse. 

Two bloggers EverOurs and UtterlyEngaged started this charity and have already surpassed their goal by over 500%!

Every penny counts:

Versailles by Robert Polidori at Galleria Carla Sozzani

The photographs by Montreal born Robert Polidori at Galleria Carla Sozzani in Milan were stunning.
His photographs capture the Palace of Versailles over the span of 25 years in beautiful detail and and eerie feeling of emptiness. My favourite photographs were of the ones focused in on details like unraveling wallpaper, the rich colour on the walls or close ups of the frames, instead of the paintings in them. Very inspiring.

Back from Milan

I have just returned from a business trip in Milan, tired and full of pasta and wine.

We had a few hours on Saturday to do touristy things, this is the marble flooring in the Duomo in Milan. More Milan photos to come and back to regular posting.

GRAZE-Snacks delivered to your desk!

I was walking through my office and saw a whole group of girls eating snacks out of cute cardboard boxes at their desk. I am a sucker for cute packaging and I found out that these snacks were actually delivered to the office!

From these snack boxes are tailored to your tastes and sent to your office in time for tea. You choose your day and you choose your likes from a list of mixed nuts, seeds, dried fruits and even olives and a box is put together for you. Oooh, and some of the nut mixes include little naughty chocolates too!

I really like the idea that instead of reaching for the biscuit tin I will now reach into my graze box and take out something healthy each day. They even provide you with the nutritional information of each section of your personalized box.

In my box above from top left to right:
mayan mocha, americas nut mix, wasapea, little figgy went to the market.
