Patchwork

I’m now the lucky owner of this patchwork fur from Acne, it was gifted and I love it dearly, it’s in fact different pieces of sheep so how they made it is a complete mystery to me.

Harrods

Change of plans today, ended up hanging around Harrods and brunching there instead. The perfect place to get into Christmas spirit, the beautiful decorations and smells and the food hall is simply fantastic. If I wasn’t going back to Norway this Christmas I would have done all the grocery shopping there, delicatessen and temptations everywhere, that reminds me, I’m leaving in 2 days and have billions on things that need to be done and haven’t thought of packing yet. Will post more later today, now work!

Soft

What a great party yesterday night, danced into closing time at Maddox so I’ve got to admit I feel slightly reduced today. But there’s no time to sit still, have plenty of things that need to be done before I head over to a lovely Christmas brunch at some friend’s place.

I love the looks above, soft, especially beige socks in brogues, spring may you come soon please, I’m tempted to check in those silk tops, will pop into Cos later and see if they are in store. Happy Sunday noon everyone!

Not old but new, fur & blue

Fought my way through the snow today, something very special was waiting for me, a present that was worth struggling a bit for, cause on days like this in London it’s mostly chaos and you’re better off at home on the couch in front of a good movie.

After a huge brunch at Paul’s (their crepe’s are delicious), some hours of work and perhaps a party tonight, life is just great!

Snow protection

Saturday morning, there’s a snow storm going on out there and less than a week for Christmas, wonderful. I’m heading out in a sec to find the last few presents and then get my own that has been put aside for me. I’ll show you later…

Right now I wish I had a hat like above, such a cool way to keep your ears warm. Have a lovely noon everyone!

A man’s coat

Today I met up with my friend Kaz and spent some time around Bond Street, was hoping to shoot some people for Flingly but for some reason I didn’t see many of them, probably cause of the weather, the snow and cold is back in London.

I was happy my man left his new coat at home today so I could borrow it in the cold, yes it’s slightly big especially on the shoulders but it kind of worked with a belt and kept me warm.

New on my arm

I bought this bracelet at Whistles yesterday, never noticed their jewellery before but I loved this one.

Just heard roomers about a nomination, I would need to get it confirmed before I get all excited about it, I promise I’ll let you know.

Rainland

For a moment I was confused about which country I lived in, referring to last month’s cold but I remembered today, the rain is back and with that the light outside gone. I’m not complaining though, much better that freezing cold but ideally 0 degrees please.

As I felt very boring on my way out, blue jeans and white cotton jumper I grabbed my colorful bag and rolled up my jeans, a detail I like. Met up with Sarah in South Kensington for a late lunch and girly talk and Sarah acted as photographer again, thanks dear!

Hawksmoor

Vegetarians look away!

Last Friday I tried a new good address, Hawksmoor, a british steakhouse in Sevel Dials in Covent Garden and it was excellent. This is the place to go for people who fancy a high quality steak and it managed to get on my top 3 list for steak places in London. What can I say, the image speaks for itself and this lovely cut was only for 2 people.

The entrance of this place is so discrete, I walked down the stairs and started off with a drink in the bar, when we were told the table was ready we were guided into a big hall, completely fully seated, felt like I was given access to the underground secret society for meat lovers. The atmosphere and wine list excellent, my only complain though was that the service was a bit slow, took us 3 hours from start to finish, but hey, perhaps they just wanted their guest to enjoy the meal in piece, the meat codex.

As for all great addresses in London a booking is necessary, even weeks beforehand, in this place I would recommend you to even prebook your preferred cut of meat as well, otherwise you’re risking they’ve run out of it.

Today

Ok, finishing off some work now, feels like I’ve been running late the whole day and just missed a press event. Going for dinner atΒ  my turkish place Sofra later, grilled halloumi here I come!

A cute tourist I met in Covent Garden, Beiru from Singapore, snapped me today, thank you Beiru! I wore boyfriend’s white McQueen shirt, leather dress Zara, snood American Vintage, boots Acne, coat H&M, bag Mulberry

Block

Dree Hemingway for Harper’s Baazar US September 2010

I’m not over the red color yet even if it’s been a huge part of 2010. But I do prefer the orange red more than deep red and I’ve got the feeling I’ll gonna love it a whole lot longer cause the more I’ve stared at Jil Sander’s Spring Collection 2011 the last couple of months, the more sure I am that I’m gonna wear these eye catching block colors for next year. It’s like the mismatch of strong colors grows on you. I’ve mentioned my crawings for a green coat earlier but I’m also keeping my eyes open for a suit like above even more orange.

This last summer I had ambitions of pairing my red leather pants with a strong pink colored shirt, a color combo I love, but I ended up never sporting the look, will do again if I haven’t change my mind by then.

Leather

Today I’m wearing a new leather dress from Zara, will show you a proper image of it later. Now, going West!
