DIARY 5


Reading: Just finished One Fifth Avenue by Candace Bushnell ( horribly bad..) and started Joan Didion's The Year of Magical Thinking ( think it will turn out to great!!). Vanity Fair and its September issue. The Secret.

Music: Arctic Monkeys, La Roux and Pixie Lott.

Downloading: Vixen ( rock girl group from the early 90's... LOVE)

Photography: Brigitte Bardot at James Hyman Gallery, Go See If in London.

Art: Waterhouse at The Royal Academy in London, Stunning!

TV: I am watching Season 1 of Gossip Girls (guilty pleasure for sure) and just finished watching Season 2 of Six Feet Under ( amazingly funny in its darkness).

Love This Week: The Orangery in Kensington Park.

Image Now: Anja Rubik as shot by Camilla Akrans for Numero.

And yes, if you'd like some inspiration, go to my COQUETTE for 90's Kate Moss and Italian Vogue...!!

Have good weekend.

I LOVE the orangery! It's one of my fave places in London.

Too bad about the Candace Bushnell novel...my fave one of hers is still Lipstick Jungle.

I love this photoshoot with Anja.The white lace dress is to die for.
I'm glad to hear you're enjoying Six Feet Under.It's pretty much the best tv series ever created. Candace Bushnell sucks. Have you ever read anything by Per Olov Enquist? "The Book About Blanche and Marie" is one of the most amazing things I've ever read.

The Orangery is so romantic and stunning plus full of delicious things!!I will look up Lipstick Jungle.

The complete shoot is amazing, I agree. Mustang Baby it's called...!!! Love it.

Someone at my local pub recommended Six Feet Under when he saw I had borrowed HEROES which I too enjoyed very much.

I must look up Per Olov Enquist, never heard of him, even though he must be Swedish right?

Thank You both for the recommendations on what to read, they will be on my list of books to buy.

Yes, Enquist is a Swedish writer.I read 2 of his books and recently bought 2 more. His writing style is very unique.
Thanks for the tip about Orangery. I going to London in the end of the month and I will definitely check it. Too bad I will miss J.W.Waterhouse exhibition though!
