Quirky Music Videos for Chet Faker

I first learned about Australian musician Chet Faker in reference to his soulful remake of Blackstreet’s “No Diggity.” The original is one of my favourite songs of all time (I knew all the lyrics in 6th grade) and thus the thought of anyone trying to come out with a better rendition seemed as promising as my karaoke performance of… Read More

Our Pregnancy Photos in SW9

When I entered my third trimester, I knew I wanted to have pregnancy photos taken. Up until then, my bump was quite small. Most people struggled to differentiate it’s appearance from just another English beer belly (…totally understandable – I’ve hesitated myself in the past). Unfortunately, unless I was simultaneously carrying around a jar of pickles and complaining… Read More

SMOOCH Films: Simon + Georgina Wedding Highlight Trailer

This wedding had me inspired. The giant light bulb “Love” sign. The waterfront warehouse setting. The funky flower pattern on the inside of the groom’s jacket. I knew instantly what soundtrack I wanted to use for their highlight trailer, a mix of old Hollywood glamour in the form of Duke Ellington with the edginess of 7Horse’s… Read More

Liquid Gold: The Beauty Benefits of Argan Oil

I first learned about this beauty must-have while studying abroad in Morocco during college.  I remember visiting an argan oil shop in the Atlas mountains and noticing how every local woman there had the most incredible, plump, wrinkle-free skin. Now this is out in the middle of nowhere where SPF50 is hard to find…the sun is… Read More

Movie Review: Chef

Tonight I saw Chef at the Ritzy. Written, directed and starring Jon Favreau, I would classify this film as the ultimate summer feel good movie. It had me leaving the theatre with that warm and fuzzy American feeling that anything is possible, and so despite the predictable bow of an ending, I humbly give it two… Read More

Q & A: Exclusive London Art Tours with Pujan Gandhi

I was first introduced to the art world by my good friend Pujan Gandhi. His enthusiasm, intellect and guidance drew me into this other beautiful dimension I knew nothing about, or rather, was too intimidated to appreciate. As a filmmaker and artist myself you would think this wouldn’t be the case, but let’s be honest, the… Read More

Victoria Beckham Proves 40 is a Year to Celebrate

I thought about titling this post “Victoria Beckham Proves 40 is the new 30,” but as I get older (and hopefully wiser), I don’t see how this is actually a compliment – which is what I was intending. In two years I’ll be thirty and the last thing I want is for people to compare my… Read More

Q & A with Bicyclette’s Californian Patisserie Chefs

When I learned about Katie’s Californian patisserie, Bicyclette, over in San Francisco, I desperately wished an ocean and the entire United States didn’t separate my mouth from her creations. Take a look at her website, and tell me, Londoners, that you don’t feel the same! Fresh Californian ingredients, French technique, drool-worthy flavour combinations and two amazing chefs….I had… Read More

Video: The 6 Best TV Series Opening Credits

  There are so many great TV shows out there, but few opening credits have caught my eye like these have.  Now, having a snazzy intro isn’t necessarily indicative of a great show, and vice versa. I still cringe watching the uber-cheesy opening of the The Newsroom for example, but thoroughly enjoy the newsroom drama and “let’s… Read More
