Last month I colored my hair for the very first time. I wanted a few blonde highlights but ended up with a whole new look that was aimed at the coupe worn by Alexa Chung. Very cool. Well, until the sun started turning my brunette whisks into reddish strands. Last week a colleague ( you know who you are) called me a little red kettle. Definitely time to visit the hair salon.

I’ve written this before. I have this annoying habit of always showing up 5 minutes late, or 10 for that matter. For a long time I blamed my dodgy personality but all my friends suffer from this trait one way or another. But why? It’s because of the following reasons. So next time a man (it’s usually a man) starts whining about you being late you can explain that it’s not your fault, you were born that way. Read more.
It happens to be a sunny day today but this may be over by tomorrow. Enter: this trend: tophalf winter, bottom half summer, excellent. Read more.
You don’t need a Doutzen-body to join the parade of bare navels, bottoms and boobs. But tread carefully; even if it’s wicked hot out there, where fashion’s concerned, there are ethical boundaries as to how much skin you should reveal. Read more.
Justin Timberlake must have been in a very good mood yesterday; the privacy-appreciating singer surprised his followers by treating them to the first picture of his newborn son. Read more.
Meet Desi. One of the cutest interns in the country. She went straight for the top and now holds an internship at Vogue. When she pinned me down for an interview for her final essay assignment I set her apart for a look. Read more.
Excusez-moi, two shades of lipstick on one mouth? Yes, we can. It is definitely something I’m going to try. What’s life without risks? Read more.
Claire Rose has officially been named it-girl, she has an it-style and is now walking the it-stage in New York. So yes, this blonde beauty was at the top of my list for a New York Look of the Day. I can scroll through her Instagram account for hours, everything is beautiful, hip and chic and has that signature edgy Claire Rose vibe. Read more.
No, I don’t have a big announcement to make. I am still very happily unmarried to the love of my life and have been for 13 years. But as a style whisperer I know a thing or two about advising on the right dress. Read more.
Look at them go: the green, pink and orange. Being carried around by hasty New Yorkers in tight fitting sporty outfits. Juices. One is cold pressed, the other with extra chai and coconut water or just ordain blender muck. Whatever it is, juices are part of street culture. Most definitely on Sunday morning. One would think it’s the national day of sports. Read more.
Nooooooo, it can’t be true! There are two great loves in my life. My blonde man and my black Chanel. Read more.
Don’t ask me why but at our weekly editorial meeting we ended up on the subject of people and their fetishes. There quite a few people out there that have strange preferences between the sheets. Squeals of laughter filled the room. That was my cue; this was feed for my Sexy Friday. May I introduce four bizarre fetishes. Every man (or woman) to his taste. Read more.
Platforms. There not for everybody. But for the shorter women among us it’s a great way to grow a few inches without the pain of towering heels. Stella McCartney’s platform shoes are our current favorite. Will you be adding inches with platforms this season? Read more.
Last week an exciting package was delivered. It contained a slow juicer from Philips. Which had me (just me) do a little dance of joy on my desk. I already can’t live without it. Why I don’t have one in my own kitchen beats me, but the office is fine because as of now I am ‘Chief of Juices’ at Amayzine. I always did do the necessary amount of noisy blending, but no more. This new buddy of mine can soundlessly juice the juiciest juices. Read more.
The Texan tuxedo is still very hip this spring. When I first set my eyes on it I thought: mmmm. But after bringing together denim pants with a denim top numerous times I’m over the denim threshold. Read more.
Delightful those weekends away. It costs next to nothing to get you to Ibiza or Milan and even less if you manage to stuff your entire wardrobe and cosmetics drawer into your miniscule hand luggage. If that bag doesn’t happen to fit into one of those silly measuring racks you have to check in and your trip will be more expensive. So especially for you, the best space saving items in a row. Read more.
Yesterday my schedule was blocked for four hours. Our friends at H&M had invited us for a lunch and lecture. For dessert… we got to be the first to shop their H&M Conscious collection The cherry? A 20% discount. Read more.
Stripes, stripes, stripes ask anyone on our team of editors how many striped sweaters, shirts, skirts and shorts she has in her closet and the number will be around twenty. I’m guessing the same is true for these vippies… Read more.
My friend M’s ultimate dream? A phone call from her father saying: “ Honey don’t worry. I’ll take care of it. From now on you have an unlimited account on Net-A-Porter.” This will remain a dream for my friend, for me, for all of us probably. Of course we shop during sale (sorry) at H&M and Zara, but ooh, the kick you get out of buying a designer piece…. Read more.
