Autumn and I tend to bump heads. It always comes a bit too early and unpleasantly fast. Snatching away the last bits of warmth, it strips the trees of their leaves and slowly sucks away my tan. But, I suppose it’s not so bad. When it’s cold meals tend to get longer, drinks warmer, and bellies a little pudgier. I’ve already started spending my evenings on the couch with hot chocolate and Christmas movies… hah, I know I’m a bit early but what the heck – it’s hard to resist.
When I was last in London I spent an afternoon with Charlie and Lexxie at the Albion. It’s one of my favourite places to go whenever I’m in town. Despite there being a big selection of delicious sounding things on the menu I always always order the breakfast bap. It totally sums up English breakfast for me and you can’t get anything like it in Switzerland.
p.s. I’ve been trying to make some changes to the blog (font/slider etc) if you have any thoughts (positive or negative) please let me know.
It was a chilly afternoon a few weeks ago in London and the perfect opportunity to try out a bit of levitation. It’s a tricky thing to do. You’ve got to concentrate really hard, think light thoughts, imagine yourself floating above the ground… but most importantly jump high, be still, and try to snap the photo while you’re headed up rather than when you’re crashing back towards the ground.
It was Shini that introduced me to the wonderful world of Natsumi Hayashi and her levitating antics. Seriously, how does she get so high? Does she have an invisible trampoline underneath her? Is she actually a life sized puppet held up by strings? I’m not sure but I’m hooked and I have a long way to go in learning how to levitate.
I wish I could actually give you an exact recipe on how to make monkey bread…
But, the truth is, I don’t know how because I’ve always cheated. There are a gazillion recipes around but none of them sound quit right. I know it would be super simple to make from scratch. Basically it just involves little round dough balls that are covered in cinnamon and sugar then baked in a pool of buttery goodness. When they come out of the oven you flip the pan upside down and voilà you’ve got the most magical breakfast known to man. Seriously this stuff is amazing – it’s like it has all the goodness of America in one single little bite.
These days, plastic jewelry is where it’s at.
I’m a real sucker for anything Swedish. The Scandinavians just tend to do everything better and their take on acrylic jewelry is no exception. Last week I was introduced to the wonderful world of Cooee Designs, where psychedelic surreal items come to life in the form of wearable art. Why yes, that is a green translucent cog sitting on my wrist. It’s oh-so-chic if you wear just one piece or a real statement if you layer on a whole arm full. I was very kindly gifted this two finger black ring but sadly it’s a bit too big on my fingers. Lucky for you though, eh, because I’m giving it away…

Lately I’ve felt really drawn to the idea of wearing winter whites. It’s way too easy to get sucked into the appeal of dark colours at this time of year – I think I wore the combination of dark skinny jeans and a grey jumper for about two weeks straight at the end of October. Buying this jumper made me want to wear soft milky colours. Luckily, Lexxie let me raid her closet and I found this skirt. It wraps around and has a slit at the front and back. Thank God for 100 denier tights – I’m sure I accidentally flashed the world a couple of times when the wind blew. Wearing this made me realize I have a huge gaping hole in my wardrobe when it comes to bottoms – all I really ever wear are jeans. Currently have my eye on this T by Alexander Wang skirt – ooooh, it’s so good.
