Weekend update

A day in the east.

Hey guys! Thought I would update you on how the weekend has been. So far, 3 words can sum it up: party, work, and shopping. Friday night my friend from Paris got in and I have to admit reuniting with her was such a great feeling. We ended up going for drinks with some people in Shoreditch at two places, one called Kalu Kaley which was basically an underground cocktail bar where the couches were made of bathtubs cut in half. The cocktails were very unique, and there were so many to choose from! Even their names were something you wouldn’t find at any regular bar… like Fizz Fizz Bang Bang, All that Jazz, Thunderbolt Peach, etc. Next, we went to this place called the Hoxton Pony, which was more of a hipster club scene but also very fun. We had a post dance party at my friends flat which I think was the best part of the night. Can never have enough dance parties!

Yesterday I worked for most of the day because we had a bunch of invites to get ready for the shows next weekend. We did the invites for Jonathan Saunders and Marios Schwab. Working on a Saturday isn’t something I would normally have to do, but there is so much preparation that goes into fashion week, so it was necessary. I still managed to get Jordy to some shops around Regent Street in between making the invites so it ended up being a productive day!

Last night was my friend Scott’s birthday party and we drank at his place (starting at 8pm.. sooo early!) and then went to Proud in Camden where we had a booth/stable reserved for us. What an amazing night! What I loved most about this place was that it used to be a stable, so all of the booths were themed differently and still had the horses names. I horseback ride myself, so I loved this. Our stable was named Sea Biscuit.

Today we are going to spend a day in the east (central-east) in some of the markets I have been raving about. We are also going to try going to a new area in Islington called Camden Passage.
