This weekend saw us on another road trip to Cologne and in the car, we played an album by the remarkable Susheela Raman. I can highly recommend her music for long trips. The music is both intelligent and thought-provoking. As it is windy today (we are still feeling the aftermath of the storm that made its way across Europe over the last two days), this following video is smooth as honey to counteract the Monday blues...

With spring in full swing, it almost feels like a bit of a shame, posting snow-filled images, but then again, why not? This month I have a debut for Dashing George, as I have our first male Bombe du Mois from Switzerland…for the full editorial, click on the ‘Bombe du Mois’ button above.
Today I am only listening to Prince (or rather Jürgen's immense collection of his music)...and I am reminded of the genius. Fitting the mood is the above picture, of our good friend Annalysse (from San Francisco), who took purple to a new level with her hair...which is awesome, don't you all think?

Like a busy worker bee, I am finalising the last edit of our upcoming Bombe du Mois...this time a first for me...someone who is truly a neighbour. We allowed the landscape a bit of room, adding to the overall effect...till the full editorial, here is a teaser.
With summer on your doorstep (well, on this side of the equator, at least), there are a few fashion questions one must face, one of the most important being, what sunglasses will you be wearing this season? On my route through Munich, I came across Ace and Tate…and the gorgeous frames they had on offer. Thanks to Pauline for modelling two of my favourites…and by the way, those jeans rock…for more wonderful styles, you can look at the full collection at https://www.aceandtate.de/ so log on and see which frame you are in the mood for.
Over the last few days I have been very much aware of the importance of the sun...and rain. It seemed that Montpellier was waiting for us to arrive so that it could finally rain...and rain it did...but we did not allow this to damper our mood. Instead, like any wise tourist, we found our way through the mall, and then, when we had had enough of this plastic culture (which is definitely still frozen in the 90's), we upped the intellectual scale by spending a good few hours at the Musée Fabre (which I can highly recommend). With pit stops at various wonderful eateries (including Le Paresseur, Le Grillardin, L'Atelier Gourmand & L'Alliance des Plasirs) Montpellier showed us her culinary side with some excellent cuisine...so now I am on a diet, as I have to be swimsuit ready by July.
