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

THE STORY OF A CERTAIN PAINTING

THE STORY OF A CERTAIN PAINTING

I was scrolling through my Instagram feed when an image suddenly caught my attention. It was an image of a painting by Norbert Goeneutte “The Boulevard de Clichy under Snow”. Under a moody Parisian sky dark figures in Belle Epoque clothes were wandering down a snowy street. Przegladajac zdjecia na Instagramie zauwzylam jedno, ktore natychmiastContinue Reading

UME NO YADO, YUZU SAKE – A REMEDY FOR WINTER BLUES

UME NO YADO, YUZU SAKE – A REMEDY FOR WINTER BLUES

Every morning for the last couple of weeks I have stood by my kitchen window with a mug of coffee, watching the rain or snow falling from the sky and counting the days until south-east Asia trip. I can’t wait to leave rainy London behind and spend some time in Thailand enjoying the sun andContinue 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

FAB TAIWANESE FOOD IN PECKHAM – THE AMAZING MR BAO

FAB TAIWANESE FOOD IN PECKHAM – THE AMAZING MR BAO

Mr Bao opened only last year but it’s already famous, and that’s not surprising because the food is absolutely fabulous. Located in Rye Lane, Peckham – an area just few years ago considered one of the worst in London and now rapidly turning into a new Shoreditch with an amazing food scene – this littleContinue Reading

CONSUMER CULTURE

CONSUMER CULTURE

“Have you bought anything in the sales?- asked a friend recently. I haven’t. This year’s sales came and went without me buying a single item. Kupilas cos na wyprzedazach?- zapytala ostatnio przyjaciolka. Nic. W tym roku wyprzedaze zdarzyly sie beze mnie.  Normally, a self-confessed shopaholic, I would be in and out of Selfridges, trying to snap upContinue 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!

THE END OF 2016

THE END OF 2016

So 2016 is coming to and end. In just over a week we will start a new chapter with new hopes and dreams, and perhaps some new year resolutions. Do you feel relieved 2016 is almost over? This has been the most unsettling year I remember. I was born during a huge political upheaval inContinue Reading

MEET SASHENKA

MEET SASHENKA

If you ask any successful entrepreneur why did they start their own business, there’s really only one answer. It’s not the money (although of course ultimately we are all in business to make money) or fame or even hating your boss. The answer is this- because if I didn’t do it, I would regret itContinue Reading

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

I WANT TO BE A SAINT LAUREN GIRL

I WANT TO BE A SAINT LAUREN GIRL

Marching into Zara on Friday lunchtime (working in central London is shaping to be deadly to my wallet) I had only one thing on my mind- vinyl trousers. I have fallen hard and fast for a a pair I saw on a Polish website maare.eu. But as I’m currently between sizes (I’m trying to getContinue Reading

BUBBLES FOR CHRISTMAS BREAKFAST

BUBBLES FOR CHRISTMAS BREAKFAST

Every year, every December, I slowly get my Christmas Booze Case collection together. This year I started with sparkles, one of the first additions to my collection being Ridgeview Blanc de Noir sparkling wine from Sussex. I first tasted this at the end of August during my visit to the Estate (here) and completely fellContinue Reading

OFF THE SHOULDER JUMPER

OFF THE SHOULDER JUMPER

Just in case you aren’t yet bored with photos in my flat, here’s a few more 🙂 London has been uncharacteristically freezing for the past two week, which, coupled with long hours I’ve been doing in the office, made taking photos a bit problematic. Tak na wszelki wypadek, jest jeszcze nie znudzily Wam sie zdjecia w mom mieszkaniu,Continue Reading

THE RETURN OF LEOPARD PRINT COAT

THE RETURN OF LEOPARD PRINT COAT

There aren’t many things in my wardrobe that The French hates more than this leopard print coat (maybe my Isabel Marant military jacket. Maybe). “Oh but darling- I said- you’ve never even seen me wearing this coat without irony. Wait until your office Christmas party…”. Niewiele jest rzeczy w mojej szafie, ktorych The French tak nie znosi jak plaszcza, ktoryContinue Reading

It’s time to get ready – the party season is just round the corner! No need to panic just yet but the last bell has rung to start planning your Christmas party calendar. So go get your tux dry cleaned, root through your wardrobe for those sparkling heels you can dance in the whole night,Continue Reading

DOUBLE TAP

DOUBLE TAP

Do you remember what was your first photo on Instagram? I posted a picture of a pair of sandals and was super happy with five likes it got. But what’s the fuss, I kept wandering when I couldn’t find anything or anyone on the app. Czy  pamietasz swoje pierwsze zdjecie na Instagramie? Ja wrzucilam pareContinue Reading

OVERSEIZED KNIT

OVERSEIZED KNIT

Between Halloween and Christmas everybody in London runs on “crazy time”. Champagne fuelled Christmas lunches and parties have already started. Work is getting hectic as everybody want to get things done before putting their feet up. Shopping extravaganza is already in motion. I’m guilty on all counts, Your Honour. Pomiedzy Halloween a Swietami Bozego Narodzenia LondynczycyContinue Reading

CHANNELING ALT

CHANNELING ALT

I’ve had many style crushes over the years, from Kate Moss to Charlotte Gainsbourg, and most recently Maja Wyh. But no matter how far I wander, I always come back to the same sets of photos of Emmanuelle Alt. Alt in Milan, Alt after a fashion, Alt in Paris; always looking super simple yet utterly epic.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
