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

FASHION JUSTICE

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

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

IN SEARCH OF PERFECT DENIM

IN SEARCH OF PERFECT DENIM

For all that noise about 90’s revival, I still haven’t found anything resembling denim I used to wear as a teenager. Cigarette leg, stiff, strictly no stretch and very boyish- Wranglers were my favourite. I used to wear it with branded tees and sneakers (ahem). Przy calym tym halasie zwiastujacym powrot mody do lat dziewiecdziesiatych,Continue Reading

JANUARY MORNING MAKE UP ROUTINE

JANUARY MORNING MAKE UP ROUTINE

The alarm goes off at 7:30. Then at 7:35. Then at 7:40…you get the picture. Those cold, dark January mornings are the most difficult on the getting up front. For five blissful years as a freelance, I’d get up with The French at 8:00am, have a breakfast and a coffee with him and after aContinue Reading

SO HERE IT IS, MERRY CHRISTMAS

SO HERE IT IS, MERRY CHRISTMAS

Happy Christmas girls! I hope you will have a wonderful time filled with love, light and laughter with your family and friends. PS. I’m taking a little time off so there won’t be new posts next week. I’ll be back on 3 January 2017. See you next year!

BREAKFAST BURRITO AT SATURDAY MARKET

BREAKFAST BURRITO AT SATURDAY MARKET

This is my Saturday routine: wake up, have a shower, drink a really quick cup of coffee, grab my shopping bag, husband/bag carrier/photographer and I’m off to the market. It usually works like this:  first breakfast! Thus my first steps go towards the Route 66 van for their absolutely wonderful breakfast burrito. It’s been myContinue Reading

DOES BLOGGING FEEL STALE LATELY?

DOES BLOGGING FEEL STALE LATELY?

I’ve been asking myself this question quite a lot, recently. Maybe because of the imminent arrival of Christmas and hundreds of gift guides on virtually every blog out there? Is is the onslaught of Gucci loafers (guilty) or Gucci belts (guilty) being sported by almost every blogger out there? Czy bloging ostatnio nie wydaje sie nieco “zwietrzale”?Continue Reading

OWNING IT

OWNING IT

Is there anything more effortless than a grey sweatshirt and a pair jeans? It’s a rhetorical question yet for about a year since Trish and I started this site, I struggled with showing you my real style. Czy jest cos bardziej swobodnego i stylowego niz szara bluza i para jeansow? Z oczywistych powodow bylo toContinue Reading

HOW DO YOU DEFINE SUCCESS?

HOW DO YOU DEFINE SUCCESS?

We took these photos near my new office. I still can’t believe we’ve moved there. I step out for lunch and don’t know where to look for all the beautiful corners of Covent Garden. Zdjecia z dzisiejszej sesji zrobilismy niedaleko mojego nowego biura. Wychodze na lunch i nie wiem w ktora strone mam dzis pojsc-Continue Reading

LOCKED MEMORIES

LOCKED MEMORIES

You only begin to appreciate the true value of things when you are in danger of losing them. I recently learnt this the hard way when my grandmother caught pneumonia and nearly died. She is fine now, thank goodness, but the important thing to me is that it was only then that I understood howContinue Reading

BRIXTON KIDS

BRIXTON KIDS

When I was living in Poland I used to fantasize about living in Brooklyn, NY.  But not the gentrified Brooklyn of today. An eternal thrill seeker, I found manicured front gardens and pretty streets a tad boring. When at the age of 20 I moved to London without telling anyone of my plan (my parentsContinue Reading

EMBRACING FLAWS

EMBRACING FLAWS

There’s a great scene in Breakfast at Tiffany’s book when Fred is invited to a party at Holly’s apartment.  One of the guests is Meg Wildwood, Holly’s friend, a socialite and a model. Jest taka scena w “Sniadaniu u Tiffanego” kiedy Fred zostaje zaproszony do mieszkania Holly. Jedna z gosci jest Meg Wildwood, przyjaciolka Holly,Continue Reading

JOIN THE (FASHION) ARMY

JOIN THE (FASHION) ARMY

I seriously have no idea how it happened but I’ve just added another coat to my collection (Ze French: I know how it happened. The Outnet Sunday sale happened). Naprawde nie wiem jak to sie stalo ale wlasnie dodalam kolejny plaszcz do mojej kolekcji (Ze French: ja tam wiem. Niedzielna wyprzedaz na The Outnet sieContinue Reading

THE SHORT STORY OF BALLET AND I

THE SHORT STORY OF BALLET AND I

One of the greatest perks of moving to Covent Garden (I still can’t believe it) is that we’ll be just around the corner from Pineapple Studios. Jedna z atrakcji pracowania w Covent Garden (wciaz nie moze uwierzyc, ze sie przeprowadzamy) jest fakt, ze zaraz za rogiem znajduje sie Pineapple Studios.  Anyone in London who hasContinue Reading

CLASSIC GREY COAT

CLASSIC GREY COAT

Sitting down to write this post, my head suddenly became empty. I wanted to tell you so much- about Warsaw and meeting a new friend there, and about an immense changes I’m experiencing lately (both to my shock and delight). Yet, maybe because thoughts make my head spin, I’m struggling to tell you a coherentContinue Reading

COVENT GARDEN

COVENT GARDEN

It was perfect. Right in the middle of Covent Garden (or shall I say, almost on the steps of Royal Opera House), with a large meeting room, in a lovely period house- I fell in love with what could be our new office. My team loved it, too. I started on the paperwork. But theContinue Reading

JUST ROLLED OUT OF BED

JUST ROLLED OUT OF BED

Until very recently I’ve been torn between wanting that glossy, bouncy mane a la Kim Sears at Wimbledon and matte, texturised beachy waves a la Californian surfer girl. Jeszcze go niedawna nie moglam sie zdecydowac czy moja fryzura ma przypominac Kim Sears podczas turnieju Wimbledon czy tez surferke z Kaliforni z jej falami ulozonymi przezContinue Reading

INSPIRED BY SEPTEMBER VOGUE

INSPIRED BY SEPTEMBER VOGUE

September Vogue, british edition features Victoria Beckham wearing a beautiful belted coat. She looks like she is wearing the coat as a dress; pushed up sleeves and a hint of summer tan complete the picture. I fell in love with her coat the minute I saw it. Na okladce brytyjskiego, wrzesniowego Vogue Victoria Beckham maContinue Reading

A GIRL FROM INSTAGRAM

A GIRL FROM INSTAGRAM

Somewhere, in an Insta land, lives a girl with caramel tan and pronounced collarbones. Gdzies w krainie Instagramu mieszka sobie dziewczyna, posiadaczka karmelowej opalenizny i wystajacych obojczykow. Nosi glebokie dekolty w serek i delikatna, zlota bizuterie.   She wears deep v necklines and delicate gold jewellery. She always looks chic and effortless. On gloomy MondaysContinue Reading

STYLE MANTRA

STYLE MANTRA

“Simplicity and consistency” is my mother’s mantra when it comes to style. Do I wish I had listened to her earlier? I do! I’d have avoided many costly mistakes when my true style was all that time within my reach. “Prostota i konsekwencja” to mantra mojej mamy zawsze kiedy rozmawiamy o stylu. Czy zaluje, zeContinue Reading

MY LONDON FASHION WEEK

MY LONDON FASHION WEEK

When beautiful Rita from Lily Ravas Agency (we met in Paris in March, it sounds rather romantic but we actually met at the fashion show :)) messaged me to ask if I wanted to go with her to Fridays and Saturdays shows during London Fashion Week, I jumped at the chance. Who wouldn’t? I didn’tContinue Reading

WHITE SHIRT

WHITE SHIRT

Today’s post is a little different as not only I’m writing it from my command centre (aka my phone) between numerous of tasks for today but the photo is less than professional having been taken quickly this morning. Dzisiejszy post jest nieco innych od pozostalych. Nie tylko pisze go na moim centrum dowodzenia (czytaj- telefonie)Continue Reading

MEET CÉLINE

MEET CÉLINE

I’m useless at buying “it” bags. Drews and Fayes of this world pass me by. Dionysus and I aren’t intimately acquainted and probably never will be. Nie umiem kupowac modnych toreb. Drew i Faye tego swiata omijaja mnie szerokim lukiem.  Z Dionysusem jeszcze sie nie poznalismy i pewnie sie to juz nie zdarzy.  Of course,Continue Reading
