Last week as some may have noticed, I spent a couple of days in London. They were some very busy couple of days, seeing friends, having meetings and hanging around. I am currently on the lookout for a new job and hopefully I’ll be able to relocate too!

I only took a few photos because to be honest, it was a crazy run around for two days. The costumes, clothes and the beautiful William Blake painting were taken at the V&A Museum, which is probably one of my favourite places in the world. I also got to see the wedding gown and Italian fashion exhibitions, courtesy of my friend Alex. Unfortunately photography is not allowed in these, but I can assure you that they are well worth seeing. I also got to see the Matisse Cut Outs exhibition at the Tate with my friend Sonia, and once again I recommend it. I had colourful shapes dancing in front of my eyes for days!

The little cute robots are from Paperchase, aren’t they adorable? Everything else was taken out and about, the last one being a detail of Carmen Miranda’s face, at this new Brazilian bar I went to. This place is called Barzinho and I went to the opening with my friend Lili. It will only stay open until November in a basement in Archer Street, so if you fancy a little bit of samba and tropicalia, head there soon. The cocktails we tried were nice but they didn’t seem to have caipirinha, which was somewhat disappointing. Speaking of Carmen Miranda, here’s a factoid that most people are probably unaware of: she as born in Portugal! It’s true, see for yourself on Wikipedia. Don’t say you never learn anything new from me.
