Yesterday evening, I arrived in Paris and celebrated with a bowl of home-made Pop-Corn!
Last week-end I finally found Borough Market. I had been looking for it for quite a while when I finally asked a British friend to draw me a map (sometimes, it is better to just sit on your pride and ask for a drawing). I can not tell you how precious this little sketch was: the market is at a lower level than the road which means that if you don't know where to look for it, you can easily miss it. But I made it, and it was worth it!
"Borough Market is London’s most renowned food market; a source of exceptional British and international produce.
More pictures to come, stay tuned...

Who said Fashion and Cooking did not get along? Miss Appollina from Washington DC made this amazing Cake inspired by Stella Mc Cartney's Spring/Summer 2011 Collection. I love the idea of a Delia meets Chanel kind of Cake!
As much as I like digital Photographs, they make everything easier, I miss the old cameras. The Diana, the Polaroid... I love watching Photographs and being able to touch them and take them with me when I travel.
Here is The Philosophy of Lomography:
Did you ever try to send an After Eight right from your Forehead into your Mouth? Well I did yesterday evening. The game goes like that: after a lovely Roast Dinner, ask your Friends to put an After Eight on their Forehead. The first one who can eat his Chocolate without it falling on the ground and, of course, without using his hands wins.
Tip: temperature can be an issue as we discovered yesterday...
Lime Tree Café. So far, my favourite Café/Restaurant in Dubai!
I just had Breakfast there but I will definitively be back for some more. The Lime Tree Cafés were created in 2001 as "a haven to escape the hustle and bustle of busy city life". Well, the goal has successfully been achieved: the space is big, the interior design is minimalist which is so refreshing in Dubai (did I tell you it took me 2 hours and 4 shops to find a simple plain white cotton tableclothe? Dubai does not do simplicity...), I can not remember any music, and the food is all fresh and organic. Which means that you actually know what is in your plate. They offer veg or English Breakfast, Salads, Quiches, and various kinds of Pastries. They are particularly famous for their Carrot Cake which I have not tasted yet: perfect excuse to go back!

When I arrived in Dubai, I had prepared myself not to see a vintage Item for months so you can imagine how curious and excited I got when I heard there actually was a Vintage Shop in Desertland. I could not resist visiting that little Treasure. I did not know what to expect and I have to admit I was pleasantly surprised by the selection. There are items from the 1930's to the 1980's, lots of colours and you can find a whole outfit: Dress, Shoes, Hats, Gloves... The prices are expensive compared to London or Paris but it is real Eye Candy!
