In the Spotlight: Emerald

When colour authority Pantone declared 17-5641 Emerald the Colour of the Year for 2013, they made a bold choice – but isn’t bold exciting and invigorating? Survey your closet. How much black, grey, white and navy is in there? I like colour but I admit, the contents of my closet are comfortably, predictably dark. I […] Read more…

Shop: Eye Poetry

Not too long ago, as I wandered through my favourite bookstore, Indigo, I came across a set of three pretty journals, all featuring beautiful images of Paris on the cover. Paris is, hands down, my favourite city in the world, and the journals were the perfect combination of form and function – beautiful to look […] Read more…

I’m thinking about joining them but knowing me, I’ll fall into such a deep sleep I’ll miss my […] Read more…

Despite the cloudy skies and chilly air, the city looms grand and impressive at every turn. Our tour guide begins by taking us to Bahnhofstrasse, one of the world’s most […] Read more…

rodeo drive

As I mentioned yesterday, I was just in California (Beverly Hills, to be precise) and I was chilling at the Four Seasons Los Angeles at Beverly Hills. While I was quite content to amuse myself at the hotel (gym, spa, pool, not to mention my sweet suite), I was also looking forward to taking a […] Read more…

This isn’t the first time (and I don’t expect it to be the last) that I am bemoaning the difficulties of packing light. Everything about the idea of it appeals to me: It’s easier to haul around a small carry-on suitcase than one (or even two!) larger ones, carry-on only means your precious cargo won’t […] Read more…
