L’Hotel – The best luxury boutique hotel in Paris.


Monday, February 22, 2016

Oscar Wilde, perhaps my favourite author, famously once said, “Anyone who lives within their means suffers from a lack of imagination.” Taking his own words to heart, poverty stricken and in Paris, dear Oscar, nearing the end of his days, moved into a hotel above his means and stayed there until his death in November ...

Once a year, on the day of my birth, I like to indulge my senses, in a way, an act of regenerating, of reminding myself of who and what I am. On one of these occasions, I was taken to Versailles by Mr de Merteuil, waking on the morning in a hotel that used to ...

Monday, April 8, 2013

Such was the case with my discovery in a very fashionable yet, hidden away from the tourists, part of Warsaw. L’AURA boutique is a serendipitous ...

My trip to Warsaw has transformed from what was supposed to be a search for fashion in Eastern Europe into a cultural serendipity.

I’ve often preached to my friends about choosing quality clothes over quantity and investing in key pieces that will serve them for years and won’t go out of style for a long, long time. I’m a big admirer of Parisian women who always seem so effortlessly chic and I follow their philosophy of investing in ...

The Art Of Packing AKA travel Fever!


Thursday, September 13, 2012

In a perfect world I would travel with nothing more than a credit card and my YSL red lipstick, which I simply couldn't survive without. In fact, I’d even take it with me when camping. Alright, that’s a lie, you’d never see me camping, I simply wanted to stress the importance of red lipstick in ...
