THIS IS NOT A GOOD BYE

THIS IS NOT A GOOD BYE

Recently I wrote a post about how blogging felt a little stale lately. Trish and I have been blogging for 2 years and felt like it was time to do something a little different, explore a bit and go beyond our current format. We started with changing our website and decided it was time to take aContinue Reading

A WEEK OF GREAT NEWS!

A WEEK OF GREAT NEWS!

A week of fantastic news! This was, and still is a very a good week for me. Of course, there was the 8th of March, International Woman’s Day, and just this one was a good reason to celebrate and take the day off, which I did, and spent the whole day chilling out. But that’sContinue Reading

WHAT ARE FRENCH MEN REALLY LIKE? 3 THINGS YOU’VE ALWAYS WANTED TO KNOW

WHAT ARE FRENCH MEN REALLY LIKE? 3 THINGS YOU’VE ALWAYS WANTED TO KNOW

It amazes me how many of you read daily my posts about dating and marrying a Frenchman. Does it mean that we place some sort of premium on being of French origins? Or is it because you are simply curious about the likes of Martineeeez, Ulieeel (apologies for my bad French accent here :). InContinue Reading

THE CASE OF BARE LEGS & WINTER COAT

THE CASE OF BARE LEGS & WINTER COAT

Fed up with black tights and ever present trousers, I decided that +10C was just enough to bare my legs. It is March after all, isn’t it? London is usually quite mild (famous last words) so we can get away with no socks much longer into the Autumn than perhaps the rest of Europe andContinue Reading

PARADISE

PARADISE

Beach, endless beach, sunshine and warm sea… There is a place like that far, far away in south-east Asia where western “civilization” hasn’t caught on yet, where instead of crowds of semi drunk westerners, clubs, and sky reaching towers of glitzy but impersonal hotels there are only two or three bungalow resorts, fishing villages andContinue Reading

WOULD YOU WEAR WHITE LEATHER?

WOULD YOU WEAR WHITE LEATHER?

Have I told you yet  that I’m obsessed with leather trousers? I guess I did. What I haven’t told you is that I’m equally obsessed with St Lauren. Oh, hang on, I have told you that, too. Well, I guess when lather and one of my favourite brands collide like yesterday at Paris Fashion Week,Continue Reading

A WEEKEND OF PAMPERING

A WEEKEND OF PAMPERING

Three weeks spent at home in leggins can be very bad for a girl’s morale. Whilst wearing them for running and such makes me feel positively sporty, wearing them for comfort just made me feel a bit of a slob. Couple it with three weeks on a sofa, no sport and no sun, and youContinue Reading

ONE STYLE I NEVER THOUGHT I’D WEAR

ONE STYLE I NEVER THOUGHT I’D WEAR

When these nice folks from Na-Kd sent me a bunch of clothes, this jacket was the only one item I wasn’t sure how to style.  I didn’t think it was “me”.  Kiedy firma Na-Kd wyslala mi paczke z ciuchami, jedyna rzecza, na kora nie mialam pomyslu byla ta kurtka. Nie czulam sie w niej soba.  Then I saw photographs from January VetementsContinue Reading

TOMATOES AND DOMAINE DE L’HORTUS LOVELY RED

TOMATOES AND DOMAINE DE L’HORTUS LOVELY RED

Since last week I’ve been crazy about tomatoes. It started when I was passing my local fishmongers and saw their display of crates of Heritage multi-coloured tomatoes. I really don’t know what happened to me then, and where this craze for umami came from. I picked one of those colourfully filled boxes and managed toContinue Reading

CURRENT MOOD

CURRENT MOOD

This week for the first time I found myself stuck for images for a post. Stuck at home with a fractured ankle and growing fat on the sofa, I’ve had no chance to go and take photos outside. By this point I’ve grown sick of constant photos in my living room and I’m sure youContinue Reading

VALENTINE’S DAY

VALENTINE’S DAY

“What would you like for Valentine’s day?” – ask The French last night, mentally getting ready to visit shops in town, something he hasn’t done for yonks. “Nothing”- I said. “Is this a trap?”- he replied, anxious. “Co chcialabys distal na Walentynki” zapytal The French wczoraj wieczorem, przygotowujac sie na wyprawe “na sklepy”, cos, czego nie robil cale lata.Continue Reading

RUINART ROSÈ – CHAMPAGNE TO SHARE ON VALENTINE’S DAY

RUINART ROSÈ – CHAMPAGNE TO SHARE ON VALENTINE’S DAY

Most of you will be celebrating Valentine’s Day in some way, perhaps dinner in a restaurant or a quiet evening at home for just you two. If you are thinking about what to drink at that occasion I have a suggestion for this year below – but go ahead and have a look on myContinue Reading

STYLE IS REFUSAL

STYLE IS REFUSAL

Coco Chanel once famously said that elegance is refusal and it always puzzled me. Only recently I finally understood what it meant. Or so I think. Coco Chanel powiedziala kiedys ze elegacja oznacza odmowe. Zawsze mnie to zdanie zastanawialo i nigdy nie bylam pewna co tak naprawde ono oznacza. Do niedawna.  Purging my closet at the endContinue Reading

HOW TO STYLE VINYL TROUSERS

HOW TO STYLE VINYL TROUSERS

Whoa, that’s a bit…kinky!- exclaimed Trish when I came to pick her up (little did I know I was walking around with fractured ankle) on Friday. We were going to Mr Bao for a dinner and a round of cocktails. Which is a perfectly appropriate venue for PVC trousers, non? “Wow, nie za bardzo perwersyjne?-zapytala Trish kiedy przyszlamContinue Reading

BYREDO MOJAVE GHOST, MY NEW SCENT…

BYREDO MOJAVE GHOST, MY NEW SCENT…

Some time ago I wrote (link) that I am a woman of one scent who has been using Tom Ford’s White Patchouli fragrance for years – and that’s because of my issues with changing a perfume brand. Well I’m delighted to announce that I am now a woman of two scents! :-), thanks to myContinue Reading

LOU DOILLON- THE ULTIMATE PARISIENNE

LOU DOILLON- THE ULTIMATE PARISIENNE

The end of January usually marks a time when I’m lacking inspiration on the fashion front. It’s when I really, really, really want to be in a bikini and denim shorts yet work commitments mean that I won’t go near it for some time.  So it’s in the dead of winter when I turn intoContinue Reading

I DIDN’T BUY CLOTHES FOR A MONTH

I DIDN’T BUY CLOTHES FOR A MONTH

At the beginning of January I embarked on a “frugal month challenge”. It meant no new clothes, no unnecessary purchases and Deliveroo app deleted from my phone. The aim was not so much to save money (although that was a nice byproduct of the challenge) but to get off a consumer merry-go-around. Na pocztaku stycznia podjelamContinue Reading

BIKINIS AND RUM

BIKINIS AND RUM

It feels so surreal shopping for a bikini and shorts when the weather outside suggests a snowmagedon rather than sunbathing at a lido. But it’s a must because with a beach holiday just around the corner I desperately need new summer outfits. So I’m sitting in my warm house (with my back to the rainyContinue Reading

WHERE TO BUY AFFORDABLE CASHMERE

WHERE TO BUY AFFORDABLE CASHMERE

Trish told me once that she’d rather drink white wine than cheap champagne. I’m a polar opposite. I don’t care if I’m drinking Pol Roger or Heidsieck, I enjoy them both, equally. As much as I love sophistication of expensive champagne, I love its cheaper sibling, too. Well, cashmere it’s pretty much in the sameContinue Reading

ONE DAY IN WINTER-  DIARY OF A LONDONER

ONE DAY IN WINTER- DIARY OF A LONDONER

It’s 8pm on Sunday and the Met Office just issued a weather warnings. Blizzard is on the way to London. Well, I do hope my boss is watching this because I’ve got a feeling that I’m not going to the office tomorrow. Niedziela, godzina dwudziesta. Synoptycy wlasnie zapowiedzieli, ze sniezyce sa w drodze na Londyn.Continue Reading

CHAMPAGNE SPRING-CLEANING!

CHAMPAGNE SPRING-CLEANING!

January is a financially tough months. Most of us find ourselves a bit broke after Christmas spending bonanza. Some decide to do a “dry January” to give our bodies a change to recover (hello liver, still holding up?). I was a good girl in December and didn’t went overboard on partying & drinking front soContinue Reading
