I'm in town

I was featured in this week issue of isintown.com. It's a site created by photographer Martin Zähringer, who photographs one new model in London every week to be featured on the site.



This one was also special for me because I was asked to wear one of my own ear cuffs. (Black dangle feather ear cuff)

2x Céline

Yesterday at Dover Street Market

CCCP cosmic communist constructions photographed

Here in London I finally had a chance to take a look at the book CCCP Cosmic Communist Constructions Photographed. The book is made by french photographer Frédéric Chaubin,  who travelled in the former Soviet Union to photograph some of the most spetacular examples of Soviet architecture from the Brezhnev era.

Amazing! Some of these buildings look like something from outer space and the all seem to be located in the middle of nowhere.

You'll find the book from Taschen.

70s glory

Discovered the Barbican Estate in the middle of City of London yesterday, I really liked the atmosphere there. The residential estate was  built during the 1960s and the 1970s and  is a prominent example of British brutalist architecture.



Actually the main reason I went there was the Bauhaus: art as life exhibition at the Barbican Gallery.
 “Art as Life” focused on the entire development of the most famous art school of the last century: it’s influence in art, architecture, graphic design, interior & industrial design, and typography. Exemplar works from such Bauhaus Masters as Josef and Anni Albers, Marianne Brandt, Marcel Breuer, Wassily Kandinsky, Paul Klee, László Moholy-Nagy and Ludwig Mies van der Rohe were presented.
  I was truly impressed by the exhibition! I was thrilled to discover new and also see my old favourite works by Bauhaus masters. Definitely a go-go, open until August 12.

I have spent already almost a week in London. I haven't done much so far but I'm looking forward to check out some exhibitions very soon, Damien Hirst @ Tate Modern is definitely one of them.

giveaway with JOIK candles & spa

The most recent addition to my candle collection is again from JOIK, this time smelling sweet like crème brûlée.



I also had a chance to make a gift box with JOIK products to give away for my readers! 

As grapefruit is definitely my favorite fruit, it's no surprise that I picked everything with grapefruit. First the grapefruit and mandarin body-lotion with carrot oil, which will leave you a nice sun kissed glow, then a soap and a candle called Sweet temptation.

If you would like to win everything named above just leave a comment with your e-mail address. 
Open to all readers!
I will draw the winner next Monday (June 11)

If you are already fan of JOIK products, let me know you favorites! I would like to discover something new as well.
