She has one of the coolest names around, hails from Bedford (New York, is blessed with beautiful features (I have cheekbone/jawline envy) and stars in one of the most anticipated films of the year (alongside hottie, Daniel Craig). It's no wonder why Rooney Mara is one of the most sought after actresses at the moment! x.
A few days ago, Aunt Elaine (yes, my groovy Aunt!) showed me, 'Here' a beautiful short film starring British model, Agyness Deyn. Featuring music by Jason Schwartzman and Woody Jackson, the project derived from the creative minds of Waris Ahluwalia, Luca Guadagnino, Sandra Kopp and Tilda Swinton for The Luxury Collection. If you have time, sit down and enjoy the romantic sights and sounds. x.
I CAN'T WAIT TO SEE THE WHITEST BOY ALIVE perform at the Keystone Festival Bar tomorrow night! They are one of my favourite bands of all time! (I'm a big fan of Erlend's other group, Kings of Convenience) Steph and I saw them in concert when we traveled to New York a couple of years ago... They were AMAZING! So, so, so excited! Hope you have a fantastic weekend :) x.
Last Sunday, Deb arrived in Sydney (yay!) on business for three days. Nic and I jumped at every opportunity we had to spend time with her that in the end, we moved into her hotel suite. It was so good to see Deb, we picked up where we left off (two and a half years ago) - eating until our belly buttons popped, chatting until the wee hours of the morning (slight exaggeration), laughing so hard our cheeks hurt... Ohhhh, how I miss that girl! x.
I love Taylor Tomasi Hill. I love Lane Crawford. Put the two together (Sarah Rutson you're a genius!) and you got a whole lotta LOVIN'! There has been talk that a few items from Taylor's line for Lane Crawford bears close resemblance to the work of Marc Jacobs and Commes des Garcons. I remain neutral in this conversation... I wonder what the designers think? x.

Oh goodness what a week it has been! I have been busy catching up with one of my dearest friends from London. I will fill you in when I have more time but for now, here are a few photos of the lovely Karine Vanesse who plays Colette in Pan Am... How cool is she? I want to be just like her! Hehe. Hope you're well. x.
Stella McCartney's latest perfume, L.I.L.Y is an acronym for Linda I Love You - a tribute to the designer's late mother. I wonder what is smells like... Is it reminiscent of what Linda McCartney used to wear? Or is it simply a scent that Stella created, liked and named after her mother?
Wishing you a happy and very healthy 2012 - I can't wait to see what the year has install for all of us! I thought I'd share a few photos of my New Year's Eve celebrations at Cafe Sydney with Uncle Ervan, Uncle Marcus and their friends from Germany :) How did you welcome 2012? Do you have a New Year's resolution(s)? If so, what is it/are they? Do you have any tips on how to keep it/them? I'm absolutely hopeless at it! x.
