Just got back…

.. from a flying visit to Paris. I popped along for 24hours to the LONDON show ROOMS to say hi to the designers and the BFC team and to check all was going well.

I am completely in love with the designers’ collections. All three were truly outstanding. Seeing their work up close again – phwoar, mama! Lulu sure knows how to pick em. (Tash & I are gagging for a personal orders night as between us we basically want the lot.)

After set up I stomped around Paris for a bit. It was great being able to wander the streets and navigate myself to two iconic outposts of Parisienne style and taste: Colette and Laduree. I felt pretty smug not getting lost (for once). I accidentally bought some presents for friends & myself in Colette, including an extortionately priced bottle of Bernard Wilhelm for USLU airlines nail varnish, that’s a delightful murky green, named ‘Birmingham’.

If I were the kind of girl who liked to match I’d say it’d go perfectly with Claire’s hand illustrated devore top (must be mine).

On my travels round town I was stopped in my tracks by Maison E.Goyard where I couldn’t help but gawp at the monogrammed luggage. Dreams of chic Darjeeling Limited style matching suitcases and trunks ensued. Trouble.

Later, I teamed up with Claire and her team for a spot of dinner – superbly yum plats du jour of smoked sausage & lentils at Cafe de L’Industrie.

We all fell in love with this lady:

Buoyed by vin we stomped off in the direction of Saint Paul for a nightcap. Golly, the French love a bit of romance & drama don’t they!

See ya next time Bastille!

Instagram

I’ve been admiring the campaigns and editorials in my stalwart glossies Vogue, ELLE and the like for as long as I can remember. When I was a teenager I used to rip my favourite images from the magazines I would buy with my pocket money and plaster my bedroom walls from floor to ceiling. Nowadays the idea of even folding down a corner of the page distresses me so, thanks to technology, I have found another way of recording my favourite images – Instagram.

I’ve just started taking pics on the app (recently brought to Android and just bought by Facebook) under the headings Ads I love and Editorials I love. Find me on Instagram under katie_jane_rose.


Disclaimer: I also post a hell of a lot of bird’s eye view dinners and cats.

Instagram in Berlin

I’ve just gotten back from my five days in Berlin.  The city hasn’t changed much since I lived there two years ago.  I would still wholeheartedly recommend Tucholskystraße for galleries – the Pool Gallery in particular where the Mercedes Helnwein exhibition Temptation to Be Good is showing until 4th June – and for eats head to La Foccacia on the corner of Fehrbelliner Str. and Veteranstr. for a €3,90 lasagne and foccacia bread treat.

This time round I discovered the joy of Instagram – below are a few shots that I took using the iPhone app.  Everything looks so much more ‘professional’ and ‘cool’.  I’m officially obsessed.
