ALONE THIS VALENTINE? TREAT YOURSELF!

February 14, 2011

I wrote a post for all of you in a commited relationship to find the best romantic spots to celebrate Valentine’s Day, but I forgot the single human beings – like myself. If nobody is treating you with love, cards or gifts, you have to buy yourself something very tempting. That is: a Diptyque Paris candle. Pictured is their Valentine’s edition, but you can only buy it in New York ($ 78). But they have a lot of other scents to choose from.

LIKE TO HAVE: AN ALLSAINTS WARDROBE

November 25, 2010

I fell in love with All Saints when I was in London a couple of years ago. I visited their flagshipstore in Spitalfields and loved the soft fabric and the twisted details. For a moment I thought of Rick Owens – but that’s impossible for that prices. It’s a bit rough – not for the girly, girly type of woman. On this wednesdaynight I did some online shopping and these are my favorites:

Clockwise, from left to right:

1. Jumper (cool with a leather legging): 295 euro
2. Scarf: 47 euro
3. Top: 55 euro
4. Denim short: 59 euro
5. The most beautiful purse ever: 59 euro
6. Leather skinny jeans: 177 euro

NEW SPOT: THE GOOD HOTEL SAN FRANCISCO

September 22, 2010


3 reasons to stay here:

  1. If you believe in doing good for the planet – so does this hotel.
  2. If you like to rent a bike (they’re complimentary with your stay).
  3. If you like to stay in the SOMA district (with a lot of hotspots around the corner).

Picture above is their photobooth picture wall. Everyone who stays here takes place in their photobooth and leaves their picture. Great idea isn’t?

LIKE TO HAVE: ORDER VALET STAND

August 18, 2010

The idea behind this design: an alternative ‘clothes chair’. You know the one chair you throw all your clothes on in your bedroom. And by doing that you create an instant messy look overthere. Not something I prefer. The design of this stand includes some alternative hangers so you can hang your shirts and jackets over it. I love it. Design House Stockholm sells all things design. But all with a minimalist Scandinavian touch. From clothes to tabletops and from vases to furniture.

Price 239 euro Check out: http://www.designhousestockholm.com 

TRIED & TESTED: SUPPERCLUB

May 3, 2010


Most striking feature:

Lounge. In a world where everyone uses the word ‘lounge’ to promote their beds and the lazy way of going out, there was a first. And that one goes to the Supperclub. Started in Amsterdam, where I visit some After Fashion Week party’s, followed by Singapore, Istanbul, San Fransisco and the recently opened one in London. Nowhere in the world are the beds so large, is the service so extremely good and the entertainment so, uhm, bizarre. Like the man with the didgeridoo I saw in 2004 on the Supperclub Cruise.
