REGENT’S PARK MOMENT

I never know what the 10-12 hour day at the studio has in store for me. I might spend most of the day with my feet up on the little red couch making a laser cut pattern, practically hanging upside down trying to build something or getting very very messy in the etching, letterpress, screen print or mound making studio. In other words, what I wear needs to comfortable, allow me to do some serious acrobatics and be easily washable. Cotton is my go-to fabric for this, and a light leather jacket to keep out the cold and the wet if I need to make a dash across the street on my lunch break.

These photos were shot by Regent’s Park. I love all the quiet little corners Regents Park has and it’s such a welcome break at the end of a long day.

Here is another post from the amazing St Paul’s location in London. It is such an amazing place to visit and explore. I love every bit of it. In my previous post I was exploring the architecture and the amazing stonework, and today I took a trip to their rose garden which is in full bloom mid summer.

WANDERLUST AT ST PAUL’S

I love the beauty and the magnificence of the architecture at London’s St Paul’s cathedral. This is where my travel journey really began. I used to work literally around the corner from here for years but have never been inside. Absurd, isn’t it. This was the moment I realised I needed to follow my dreams, travel and see the world. And although I started my journey with far-flung places around the world like Asia and remote islands in the Indian Ocean, I came back to London to visit St Paul’s after all. And because it was here, during a lunch break at work when my travel journey started, I am wearing my favourite, which is comfortable and versatile, easily wearable for an office day in or a good night out.

COSY COMFORTS

I love this super cosy and relaxing honeysuckle scent I picked up from Jo Malone. It’s sweet but subtle, and the perfect thing to go with all the other little things around the house that cheer me up and gel me to relax. Co-starring in this post: flowers, because there can never be enough flowers and some M&S chocolates, with packaging so well designed that I prefer to display rather than eat them.

TASTE OF SYRUP

Here is my new lip colour love by MAC in a shade called Syrup. It’s the perfect shade for day or night, and my new absolute must-have companion when smartening up a work look. Oh and please excuse the slightly terrible lighting, this was one of those shot-in-winter pictures when any decent light goes by midday.

COLOUR, LOUDER!

I have been taking a lot of walks around London recently. And although it’s summer it can get a bit grey and dreary a lot. To remedy this, here is a round-up of my favourite places that are a very welcome pop of colour on the London landscape. Starring in this post are Laduree in the Burlington Arcade and Snog in soho.

LOOK UP

After a long day of exploring and sightseeing Kuala Lumpur, I was right back at the Petronas towers in the evening to see the shimmering lights of KL laid out over the landscape. I was off to Marini’s, the famous 57th floor restaurant and bar, and the highest place you can grab a bite and a drink in KL. The views were breathtaking, and so completely worth it, despite me battling the urge to start holding onto the nearest wall, chair or person to fight off my fear of heights. Meanwhile, my Malaysia expert and unofficial tour guide gave me a tour of all of KL by night from the lounge window to wrap up my visit around Malaysia.

While in Kuala Lumpur, another gem on my trail of cultural highlights was the visit to the Islamic arts museum. I got a private tour round the entire collection courtesy of a very good friend who was working there over the summer. I immediately fell in love with the colours and the patterns of Islamic art. And getting all the historical background behind the culture and the history of specific pieces made my visit that much more special. And the best part for me personally was seeing little bits oh home throughout the exhibition. A long long time ago I used to live in Eastern Europe and seeing familiar items form these shores really reminded of all the Islamic heritage I grew up with when travelling around places like Crimea.
