Twenty8Twelve Fall Lookbook

September 3, 2011

Fall is undoubtedly my favorite season to shop, and I’m anxious to get my hands on a few new items: black leather boots, wine colored cords, a cream skirt and a few soft sweaters to name a few. The Miller sisters’ Twenty8Twelve Fall collection is enticing; I can already see a few of the pieces fitting in nicely with my current Fall wardrobe! And yes, mine is also filled with black clothes – the story of any TV/film producer’s wardrobe.

Afternoon Tea with the Queen?

December 2, 2010

You won’t be surprised to hear of my new found love for 3 o’clock tea since I’ve left London (one milk and a teaspoon of sugar, cubed,) so when I saw this hilarious advent calendar I couldn’t resist buying one! Donkey Products is full of great stocking stuffers too -I love their colourful journals.

Forecast: Rain.

I’ve just discovered my neighborhood pub, the Havelock Tavern! A close friend stressed the importance of finding a local, as the Brits call it. Fortunately, mine is right down the street and features an excellent menu and drink selection. I’ve got every intention of spending a big part of this weekend curled up in a booth reading a book! My colleague Abbie has kindly lent me Wolf Hall, a lengthy account of Thomas Cromwell’s rise and fall (I’m a sucker for anything from the Tudor dynasty!) Now if only I could be wearing that pair of boots below…

London Showers.

July 23, 2010

Surprisingly, the weather in London has been absolutely gorgeous this year -A far cry from my visit last Summer! Even so, my sister wisely recommended I purchase a trench coat, and how could I refuse an occasion to shop!? I’m on the hunt for a pretty, mid-length (I’m petite!) version of the gorgeous yet oh-so-very pricey Burberry trench. I think I’ve found a good contender at Westfield, Europe’s largest shopping mall, which coincidentally is a mere 7 minute walk from my new digs!

Where Am I?

July 23, 2010

[Okay, so maybe Big Ben gives it away!]

It’s been a whirlwind few weeks, and I’m excitedly calling London home for the next few months! I was offered a wonderful opportunity to work alongside two very talented documentary filmmakers -And so I’ve packed my belongings, left my home, and crossed the pond for a new experience.

As Helen Keller once said, life is either a daring adventure or nothing. So here I am… And I’m taking you with me.

De Retour!
