Considering that I’m obsessed with an extremely wide variety of things – books, skincare, impractical dresses, strange perfumes, stews, Persia, stickers, biathlon and Tallinn sea views, to name a few – it’s a small miracle that I don’t really care about ling..
I love elaborate dishes – as you may have guessed from this post, for example – but elaborate dishes are a bit like statement gowns: you love them, you admire them, you may even wear them quite often, but for most of us, they aren’t an option for everyday. M..
People often say that when it comes to skincare, you can save on cleansers, as they are on your skin for such a short time that spending a lot of money on amazing ingredients doesn’t make sense. In theory, I agree. In practice, I still want my cleansers to b..
I’m writing this with a medium-level hangover, which makes the thesis of the post particularly unlikely. Essentially, I’m going to say that I’m OK with people – me included – getting drunk once in a while: I’m warning you right now so that you can stop readi..

I had no idea that I’d been in love with India Mahdavi’s work since 2014. As soon as Gallery at Sketch London reopened after renovation that year, I knew this was a place I wanted to visit: full of rose pink velvet and chairs that looked like they were made ..
