My happenings while in The Land of the Fat!

Monday night Macau

image

Last day with Alastair and the team.  He tells me to keep him posted on my return… I have a feeling he’ll regret saying that out loud!! I’m already fearful for the state of his inbox from my incessant updating… But i’ll be back!! 

image

Meet up with Shirl’s, Mikala and Husband after work for wining and dining at Macao!! 

image

image

New favourite restaurant. With my favourite crew.  Almost the perfect end to the evening… 

image

Until Husband presents me with the ring!! Thanks Mikala!  You did good!! (P.s.  I’m totally claiming you as mine in the pre-nup…so Dom will have to find a new bestie…) xx

particulieres asked: Hi! I was wondering where your iphone cover was from? thank you:)

hey.  i got it done in HK! in a mall called Apple Mall.

Studio times and a full week with Alastair and Zara in lead up to Vogue China shoot.

Errands.  Emails.  Couriers.  Check ins and a hell of a lot of clothing for the shoot at 20 Exchange Place this weekend.

Clothes.  Production crew.  Catering.  More clothes and road closures on Wall Street for filming of the new Batman!  The end of a long, but more then memorable week.  

The night is young!! Time to meet Mikala and her friend for some drinks and disco… (and what turned out to be a proposal!! Yay!  I can stay!! )

Family reunion!  2 and a half months without family around mean’s i’ve been neglecting my Asian banquets.  Pau’s have just arrived! Welcome dinner involving a private room, lots of food, lots of wine and some pretty old school Karaoke playing in the background.  Nice to see their faces.  

It’s still early.  Take Evelyn and Jacklyn out for a drink at the Bowery Hotel before heading back to their hotel in midtown.  The Ronson sisters are chillin with a Madden in the corner.  First celebrity sighting for the gang… 

Get back to the UN Millenium hotel!  The entire foyer is mirrored to an inch of its life.  The view from the room is glorious… Get up early next morning for Woodbury Common shopping trip!  It’s rather rushed.  Rather underwhelming.  Until Balenciaga happens. Family trips are funny!! Rush back by 5pm to make dinner at Bouley by 6pm. 

Bouley is AMAZING! I love being waited on. Bouley has a specific waiter for everything.   My favourite is the bread one (he has 7 offerings! I only got through 3). Carb cravings filled and then some. (hor’derves, pre pre pre dessert, dessert, post dessert…)  Venture out to watch some of the Halloween parade.  Walk home.  

Go to meet Mereki and Kate at Kenmare.  Surprise run in to Jesse.  We have a dance.  Its late.  Time to call it a day!  Quite a glorious day!  Happy Halloween indeed!

Birthday Fun!

Birthday festivities & Halloween times to wrap up a memorable birthday in NYC!

Big Week.  Early call times, fittings, shoots and rain.  Start the week with a Nom D shoot.  Run into Shirley at OC.  Leads to wine times.  Birthday treat to myself.  It’s getting cold out.  Feeling the onset of another cold.  Make Kim Chi soup.  Manage to stay in most of the week.  Finally try Ruby’s Cafe.  The barista is friendly.  On location at the Thompson Hotel for DKNY shoot.  Long day.  It’s cold out.  Even colder on the rooftop.  Dinner at Mercer Kitchen.  They don’t understand the meaning of Medium rare… twice.  Head to The Bowery Hotel.  Have some drinks.  Meet some people.  Head home with a heavy head.  I feel like I could sleep for a few days….

Ink. Missions & Francophile sunday

image

Saturday.  Appointment at New York Adorned for my last Initial.

image

A day of missions.  Beginning with a visit Uptown to Dylan’s Candy store after seeing Celine’s instagram of luscious candy…

image

Stopped into Macy’s to check out some backpacks.  Bag full-a-sweets i’m determined…

image

End the weekend with a spontaneous night of all things french!! See Woody Allen’s Midnight in Paris, followed by Nicoise and Creme Brulee at Balthazaar.

It’s been a productive weekend.  Ticking lots of boxes, and ready for the full working week ahead! 

Sample Sales.  Last minute sourcing.  Date night with Philipp.  Shoot at Coney Island.  It’s cold and foggy.  7am Call time takes its toll!  Get back to the city.  Do returns.  Get home.  Unwind.  Get a bad phone call.  Late dinner at Cafe select.  Drink lots of wine.  Eat some steak.  Drink lots of campari.  The room spins.  The long day just caught up to me.  Send myself home.  Inhale a tub of Ben & Jerry’s.  The spinning has subsided … and quite possibly been replaced with diabetes… 

Name Dropping.

I didn’t know this happened.  But a nice little bit of press never goes astray…
