Print presence

I think Kate Moss has print presence the way some actors have screen presence. Some people like her and some people don't, but I think it's undeniable that she has a presence that can hold the page. To me, that's pretty important in a model and I think a lot of the newer girls these days lack that.

Discoveries that make me hungry

I'm discovering so many photos on and some of them are making me want to eat all the food on the planet.

Yves is part of Yves Saint Laurent

Yves Saint Laurent is Yves Saint Laurent. You can change the name on the label but it is what it is.

Thinking about London

I've been really missing London, England these past days. It's been a few years since I last travelled there and the recent Jubilee excitement has made me think about it again. I distinctly remember that small and casual Italian restaurant near St. Paul's Cathedral that served amazing pasta and apple juice that tasted like real apples. I miss being able to walk into all those great museums for free. I miss being impressed by everyone's style. I miss the witty remarks from super-friendly tour guides. Maybe exams are getting to me and I just need a vacation.

It wasn't so long ago...

I miss seeing John Galliano's work filling runways and magazine spreads. This dress (and the entire collection, really) was amazing on so many levels. What he did was wrong, but he's been given his lesson and I believe in second chances. He'll be back, I'm sure of it.

Vanilla is forever

Plain vanilla ice cream has got to be one of my favourite things in the world. I bought a tub of French vanilla the other day but it just isn't the same.
