STYLE CRUSH: KATE MOSS

Kate2In case you missed it, Kate Moss turned the big 4-0 this month. And my God, does that woman age well!! How is it possible that I have given up smoking, don’t drink a drop of alcohol, don’t do drugs and eat quite healthily, and I look the way I do (not fabulous, no matter how much coverup I apply) and she can live a hard-partying, rockstar lifestyle for more than half her life and look as fabulous as she does? It blows my mind! Continue reading

It’s a precious metal that has had people charging across countries in search of a few nuggets and it has become a color that recalls luxury and natural beauty in all its glory.

HAPPY IN AMSTERDAM

Well, the weekend is finally upon us and that’s reason enough for celebration. You have to check out this video I came across, which put a great, big grin on my tired face! Did you know that women in Holland are supposed to be the happiest in the world? I certainly didn’t, especially not after the week I’ve been having!! Love the kids, but sometimes they are just too much! But all is well with the world after I saw this video to the perfect beat of Pharrell Williams’ “Happy”.

Get your groove on while you watch this!

STYLE CRUSH: TAMARA MELLON

 

TamaraThe story of how Tamara Mellon, née Yeardye, went from a hard-partying It-girl on the London club scene to founding one of the world’s most coveted shoe brands, Jimmy Choo, is the stuff of legends. The whole saga reads like a cross between a Jackie Collins drug-fuelled sex and power romp and a “How to succeed in business” handbook.

STRANGE BEAUTY: JAR

JAR3Joel Arthur Rosenthal, aka JAR, is shrouded in mystery. Rumors and outrageous anecdotes about the reclusive Paris-based American jeweler abound. Some say he is rude and abrasive, others say he’s a genius. Whatever the truth may be – and from what I’ve gathered from the very rare interviews he has given, the truth lies somewhere in the middle – JAR’s pieces are veritable works of art created from precious gems, diamonds and titanium, platinum, steel and white gold.  Continue reading
