Everyday Beauty (January ’15 edition)

February 13, 2015

“The wonder of life is often most easily recognizable through habits and routines.” – Anne Lamott These days I’m more inspired by everyday moments with friends and loved ones than I am by grandiose landscapes and exotic places. I don’t know if it’s the Leica that I’m shooting with now or because my perspective is […]

El arte de la sobre mesa | The art of the long table

June 6, 2014

I love Europe for its museums and castles, Asia for its food and beaches, and North America for the countless things that make it a great place to call home.  But South America I love for its sobre mesa –  the art of the long, drawn out table where friends and families loiter together for […]

‘Twas the best night of our lives

January 5, 2014

Three weeks later and I’m still so high from our amazing holiday. I’m buzzing with nostalgia. What to do with all this energy? Wish I could bottle it up and save for days when life feels more routine than it ever ought to.

The slow burn: Time and the realization of truth and dreams

September 24, 2010

A few months ago, on a fresh London evening, a girl friend and I were sitting at a pub catching up about the year away.  We talked travel and work and friendship.  Under the buzz of after-office revelry, we opened up about pain and history and the men in our lives.  She asked me about […]

September 2, 2010

We just finished an incredible two weeks in Greece – eating, beaching, swimming, dancing and overall indulging in such ridiculous languid pleasures that I feel guilty writing about it all here.  The sun, the sea, the music, the company, the scenery, the food.  Death by pure pleasure. In addition to the beautiful Greek breakfasts that […]

Lunatic thoughts: Imaginative escapism

August 12, 2010

We had some dear friends over for dinner last night and honestly, one of my favourite things about small, intimate dinners is the quirky conversation that is bound to come up about none-sense things.  It’s amusing to listen to it all flow from architecture in Canary Wharf, to suicide in one of the large towers, […]

Tell all the women to stop! The superfluous art of girl talk

August 4, 2010

If you’ve ever been at a Starbucks long enough to eavesdrop on two women chatting over coffee, you’ll realize quickly (especially if you’re a man) just how crazy the world of girl talk can be.  Scratch that.  It’s not crazy, it’s … ridiculous.  We women are ridiculous.  Even though I participate in said girl talk […]

A wedding in Germany

July 12, 2010

We’re back from a wonderful few days in Baden-Baden Germany, after spending time with friends at one of the most beautiful weddings I’ve attended. In the middle of a heatwave, we congratulated Scott and Sonya as they declared their vows atop a vineyard in Germany’s Black Forest region. There were tears, champagne, strawberries, blazing heat, […]
