Lights | Nights | Beauty.


So aptly I entitle this Blog entry with thanks to the surrounded beauty in London and Paris.  An evening out for dinner at Oxford Circus was very memorable. Walking the London or Paris streets with ones you love – is just AH!

We’ve had so much inspiration last year that we are just bursting at the seams to tell you all about our 2014 inspirations.  I cannot wait to share it all. Meanwhile, keep yourself glued to this station.

I have been off coffee now for one month and when travelling through Europe I thought I was going to break my streak but I did not. I have been enjoying good teas and adding milk to the cup where applicable.  A good find here and here.  Everywhere we walked we drooled over these vests and this one too.

This dress compliments our Jan/Feb 2014 cover well. Dont you think?


Europe Highlights

Coming back from Paris and London was quite heartbreaking.  Not only was I leaving beautiful cities, but also leaving behind my family.  There were some great highlights to my trip and I could not have enjoyed such a rich experience without the time spent with my family.  I laughed in conversation over Tattingers Champagne while reading Paris versus New York. It is an illustrative book that compares New York to Paris in a very obvious way.  It was quite entertaining. A cold cold New Years Day was spent walking around Versailles.  I was quite amazed at how many people after New Years Eve were roaming the outdoor grounds. Even in the frigid weather, the beauty of Versailles still took my breath away.  It was beautiful. Tea was sipped and enjoyed at Mariage-Freres within the Louvre.  Paris is human and it breathes and I think this is why it draws us so much.

While in London we made sure to eat Dim Sum at Ping Pong in Oxford Circus, Indian at Kiplings (Highgate N6). Navigated the sea of people shopping the incredible sales at Zara’s, Selfridge’s and Harrods. Several warm cups of mulled wine was enjoyed while walking down Portbello Road and Sacre-Coeur (Montmarte). There was one evening we stayed at the Hotel Armstrong before we stayed with family in Paris and I have to say I was thoroughly disappointed.  The rooms were tight, dingy and there area had nothing around.  I would not recommend a half hour there.  The walls were paper thin and while initially we just needed a place to lie our heads, it was ever more uncomfortable when in fact I was sick and just desperately needed to good nights sleep.


Being with Family

How are your Family Dance Gatherings?



Well I am officially in London (WaHoo) for a week with my family then off to Paris for a few days.  First London stops will be made here and here.

Tea would be enjoyed here. Gifts and Antiques will be bought here. To enjoy a full spa experience in the City of Bath here.

If time it would be neat to go to Selfridge’s (as on the PBS program entitled, Mr. Selfridge). There are 18 restaurants to choose from in Selfridge’s.  I cant decide between the Ice Cream  at Oddono’s or fine dining at The  Corner .

London UK

Looking forward to my European Break!

Time will be spent with my family in North London with loads of dinners but also fun time outdoors.  I am looking forward to hitting up Tower of London and Somerset Ice Skating rinks:


Arriving 15 December 2013?

Take advantage of Magical Ice Kingdom, go on the rides, and watch the circus.
