London loves RED

Red is definitely a british color. The busses are red, the mailboxes and the phone boxes are as well and the union jack has also red in it. You see that red is a dominant color in the english capital. The doors in London are also very colorful and red is very popular as seen on this door. This is a typical London entrance - isn't it beautiful?

It's Christmas at Selfridges

Crazy! It is not even November and the christmas decorations have already begun. Actually I don't mind because I love the lights and the christmassy stuff but what I don't like is that I have to wait two month for the presents. Well I will get over it, in the meantime I'll get into the christmas mood and enjoy London's decorations on the streets and in the windows such as this at Selfridges. A golden taxi brings all the presents. I like that.

LOVE is on the streets

Shortly after the Frieze Art Fair I discovered the famous red LOVE Sculpture in front of the 45 Park Lane Hotel in London. I always wanted to see it live. I have seen so many pictures when this iconic pop art piece was displayed in New York and since then I was keen on seeing it. So if somebody feels the same way, go to 45 Park Lane and check out the Love Sculptures of Robert Indiana.

Me and my Mint Tea

The weather in London could not be better. In fact, I am still sitting outside and have breakfast. It is lovely. Me and my mint tea are enjoying it. This vintage china has so much history and is so cute. Everytime I come to Cocomaya I'll get a different design. Such a cute idea and it is always a surprise which one I get. I especially like their Chelsea branch on Pavillion Road, close to Sloane Square. For sugar addicts this is definitely the place to go.

Shopping in Bling Bling Heaven

If you have a soft spot for jewellery, I promise you that you'll go crazy in this Chelsea Boutique. Butler & Wilson celebrate their 45th anniversary this year, so they have been in the vintage and jewellery business long enough to know what's good. This store will blow your mind.

EAT OUT London : OPSO, Marylebone

I love Greek Food - there I said it. Tzatziki, Dakos, Feta or Baklava - these mediterranean dishes can be amazing, when you have the right ingredients. They are simple to make but hard to accomplish. If Opso is a real greek?

I saw RAW...

As I passed the new Victoria Beckham Store in Mayfair the other day, I spotted a new green eating place called Raw Press in the basement of Wolf & Badger on Dover Street. Raw, detox, organic and healthy are the keywords of modern society, so guess what this deli serves?

A cinderella carriage in London

That's what I love about London, it is full of surprises and there is are limits, there is no No. You can do and have everything, if you pay for it of course. What an awesome lifestyle if you get picked up by this carriage?

Gone but not forgotten - a true inspiration

Oscar de la Renta was 82 when his life came to an end yesterday. I am sure he will not be forgotten since he was such an amazing designer and he was an enormous inspiration for the the fashion world. He will live on in his designs. Have a look at his wonderful Gowns . Even if we don't need a dress like this, it is divine to look at them.

#Tea4choo - The Jimmy Choo High Tea

The Brits love their afternoon tea, but what everyone loves even more is a fashionable high tea which you can find at the Berkeley Hotel in Knightsbridge. Usually they have designer runway inspired cakes and sweets which they change depending on the fashion seasons spring summer or fall winter. But currently the luxurious shoe brand Jimmy Choo collaborates with the Knightsbridge based Hotel. So get your iphones and hashtag #tea4choo and #sweettooth.

NEWS // L'Eto Caffe on Brompton Road

I am very excited to announce that there will soon be a L'Eto Caffe in my Neighbourhood. They will open their sixth outlet on Brompton Road in early November. As you may know I am a L'Eto Fan, read my Eat Out Post if you like to know what in particular I like about the Café.

Jewellery Trend : "The Ocean"

The summer is almost over (Oh no), but you can bring it back by wearing ocean inspired jewellery. Clams, Shells and the colours Turquoise and Coral were dominant in this jewellery trend. So let the summer return and wear these...

Monday Morning just got better !

For many many people mondays are a nightmare! The weekend is over (of course it was way to short) and the whole week is ahead of us. Time for a monday morning treat. Does't have to be Chanel, but it's nice if it is. Right?

Celebrating the LV Monogram

This year is the 160th founding anniversary of the brand Louis Vuitton which they are celebrating by a wonderful collaboration with six fellow designers. All of them including Karl Lagerfeld & Christian Louboutin designed an accessoire and used the famous monogram LV print to celebrate the brand's signature element.

My Weekend Favourite

If you share the love of Cinnamon Buns with me, you should head out to the Scandinavian Kitchen in Marylebone. Believe me I tried many, but the Scandinavian know to to bake them to perfection. See for yourself...

NEWS // Frieze Art Fair London 2014

Today is the last day of the Frieze Art Fair in London. The tickets were limited (and quite expensive) but don't be sad if you did not buy one. 20 art pieces are open to the public, take the closest entrance to Regent's Park if you come from Great Portland Street Station and have a look at the "Sculpture Park".

Portugal Travel Diary // Cocktail o'clock

I am not really into alcoholic drinks but on vacation I enjoy going to the hotel bar if it's nice. At the Conrad Algarve there were two bars, I preferred the Gusto by Heinz Beck Bar which is also a Michelin Star Restaurant. The Cocktails were as exiting as the food.

My Portugal "Mitbringsel"

Buying things on vacation is fun because at home you will always remember where you bought it and also have great memories. With these Love Bangles I created some Algarve memories, since I bought it I did not take them off. The neon colors are so bright, they make my skin look even more tanned. And I kind of love everything with "Love" written on it. I am a hopeless romantic when it gets to Love.

#OOTD : Accessories Selfie

Rrrrrrrrrrhhhh - it is "Animal Season". Especially when fall comes along I love to wear leopard accessoires. The brown and beige tones are the perfect for fall. Today I completed my look with a long grey cashmere cardigan and a leopard scarf (you cannot see it in the picture). What you see here?

Shoes // Dune
Boyfriend Jeans // Adriano Goldschmied
Bag // Zara studded crossbody bag
Iphone Case // Lulu Guinness

A Day at the Beach !

A vacation without seeing any kind of water is no vacation for me. After two days of golfing and relaxing on the pool, I had to go to the beach to Praia Quinta do Lago.

Portugal Travel Diary // The Food

You know that I am a Foodie, so it is no secret that I like to enjoy great food even when on vacation. Food is actually even more important when away because you can discover amazing dishes and ingredients if you try local food. For me the Portuguese Pastel de Nata are not to be missed. 

What I found in the Minibar!

Look at that... Cocktails in Tubes, how practical and stylish. With only 60ml it is more like a shot but still a very stylish and fashionable one. I saw them in the minibar and immediately opened the Cosmopolitan like Carry in Sex & the City. It is always Cocktail Hour, when you have these guys in your fridge. Right?

Portugal Travel Diary // Part 2 - The Accomodation

A hotel can turn your holiday into a nightmare or it can be paradise which in my case was created by the Conrad Algarve. The five star hotel is a getaway that you do not want to get away from.

Breakfast Time at Louro...

Breakfast is a very important meal, even more important when on vacation. I could sit there for hours, drink half a dozen coffees as well as juices and enjoy the view. Starting the Day with "the best orange juice of the world" - that's what the Portuguese people say. I have to admit the orange juice is very fruity, sweet and delicious.

Confessions of a Workaholic

It is Thursday afternoon, time for coffee and a book. The book bored me after only 3 pages, so I opened my macbook and started to work. Weird ?! I have been on holidays for 4 days and I told myself to take a break from the blog. You see how that worked out...

Spotted : Victoria Beckham Store in Mayfair

Today I have something really special for you. I went to the new Flagship Store of Victoria Beckham. Precisely one week after the store opening in Mayfair and I thought I would maybe meet the designer in store. Since she could not attend her own opening, I thought she has to turn up eventually but I was wrong. 

Shoe Emergency - Help...

First of all - I hate packing! Everytime I have to pack a suitcase I start early but still end up with rubbish decisions. Somehow my packing sucks. Maybe because I detest it so much? Well it has to be done, but what shoes should go with me?

Eat Out London : E&O Notting Hill

After a long pause in the Eat Out London Ressort I have a very special restaurant for you. The E&O in Notting Hill is not only known for their delicious asian cuisine, it is the place to be for fashionable Food People on sunny weekends. So if you love yummy asian fusion food in a lovely athmosphere and a nice sunny outside sitting area, you should definitely visit E&O.

Breakfast in Bed on a Wednesday

Yes you heard correct. I had my breakfast in bed today and it is not sunday. Some of you may think that's weird but I don't care. The weather is pretty bad out there so I will stay home all day and will blog, blog, blog and eat. I am currently working on a post about the E&O Restaurant in Notting Hill, where I had a wonderful and yummy lunch last weekend. So stay tuned and spoil yourself in the meantime. My fresh squeezed orange juice reminded me of my last holidays on the beach. #throwbackwednesday
