Literary Style: Smilla’s Sense Of Snow

Literary Style: Smilla’s Sense Of Snow

“After breakfast I put on a long suede coat and the Jane Eberlein fur hat. The coat has deep inside pockets. Into them I put the last, folded clipping, a bundle of krone notes, Isaiah’s tape, and the letter to my father. Then I leave. The day has begun.” Peter…

State Of Undone

State Of Undone

It’s that time of the week when words like ‘deadline’, ‘time’, and the phrase “yes, no problem”, start to compete for importance with words like ‘release’, ‘simplicity’ and ‘just the necessity’. The need to uncoil after a long week starts when I arrives home: bag down, jeans off, hair out….

Elvira Hancock

Elvira Hancock

We love a good cinematic backstory, so had a little swoon about Moochi’s AW14 range, purportedly inspired by ‘lady tiger’ Elvira Hancock from the 1983 cult flick Scarface, played by an immaculate, ethereal, honey-dipped Michelle Pfeiffer. Refined to a cool edit of 18 separates, Moochi’s newest collection is a covetable…

Agyness Deyn: Title A

Agyness Deyn: Title A

Cool chameleon Agyness Deyn, former English superdoopermodel and the face of the late noughties (for a while there her face was splashed on literally every magazine cover and every major campaign) has seemingly been laying very low of late, possibly, and understandably, just taking a breather from the intensity of…

Homemade Raw Snickers Bars

Homemade Raw Snickers Bars

These extremely decadent, deliciously chewy, caramelly, nutty raw sweet treats were stumbled upon in my kitchen as a happy consequence of raw cheesecake unbaking gone wrong. I ended up with cashew butter instead of the filling I was attempting to make… but I’m not upset about this in the slightest…

Espresso Martini For Two

Espresso Martini For Two

Whether you’re celebrating with your lover, or another, there’s nothing quite like a stiff drink to end the week/kick off your weekend.

The Face: Amber

Artist notes: Skin is left fresh and clear without sculpting or blush powders. Eyes are contoured with two vivid shades of orange – the lighter tone is matte, the contour is iridescent. Lips are lined and filled with a pencil for a flat, graphic shape. Lipstick is lightly painted on…

Miu Miu Meow

Miu Miu Meow

I’ve always been a big fan of Miu Miu’s playfully glamorous aesthetic and fun pushing of fashion boundaries, and the new SS14 collection is hands down one of my favourites ever. Not least because I got a kitten just a few weeks before the SS14 show and called her Miu…
