&WHAT | SATURDAY.

Zero plans make for the best days.

Spent Saturday walking around East with a solid crew. My friend Michelle from Toronto stayed over on Friday after a night of bar hopping. Woke up at 6:45AM (stupid body clock). After trying to get back to sleep we decide to get up and make the most the sunshine.

Walking through Brick Lane to Beyond Retro – their original shop with racks on racks of vintage clothes. Walked past the curry houses and dumplings which would have made the perfect cure for the hangover not so much for the beach bod.

Ended up in Shoreditch as per usual. First stop was House of Hackney where I spotted the sink of dreams. Everything in HOH would fit perfectly in my future home, already planning out each room.

Second stop: Artworks Bookshop on Rivington Street. With every obscure magazine and coffee table book you could imagine, this is a place you could spend hours in. Eyed up even more things for the future home.

More home planning at the third stop, a new space that opening on Charlotte Street. W.A.Green. They had Cire Trudon candles that are said to be the ones they made for the Palace of Versailles. A candle fit for a queen? I’ll take that any day.

Only one more day to the weekend now!

&what | The Shelfie.

I like to surround myself with pretty things. Not just any pretty things, the ones that I have collected over time, with special memories behind each.

Living in London, space is a luxury. However, there is enough space for this shelf. And here, I present to you my #shelfie.

Dipped into some DIY activity for this beaut. Went to the hardware store, picked up some paint to refresh a simple cork board, got a box of nails and voila!

So many memories here. My favourite illustrator – Garance Dore, a hand painted watercolour note from the talented Candice Kaye, Picasso, a few too many photobooth pics, Ganesha statue for prosperity, Buddah for wisdom, Elon Musk because he is epic, Grace because she is elegantly amazing, Jo Malone to always smell like roses (or Mimosa and Cardamom), Alexander McQueen’s Savage Beauty and my camera – right there, ready to go.

A little space that’s all mine.
