We spend at least one weekend a year at Soho House‘s Babington House(and it’s probably where we will be tying the knot on our 20th anniversary!) Just found out about their new project Soho Farmhouse in Oxfordshire. Looks gorgeous, can’t wait to visit!

I have literally just heard about James Rhodes, and I am actually crying tears. He was my introduction into contemporary piano music (and a fair bit of classical too), and I listen to his work, I kid you not, at least twenty minutes a day.What happened to him is horrific to put it lightly, I can’t even begin to fathom the agony. It feels so awful in a way because I have this intimacy with his music. He has my full support at this time, and I believe it is his right to have his story told. I mean, MULTIPLE SURGERIES. So so fucked up.

We visited the Marlene Dumas exhibition at the Tate Modern, we can’t recommend it enough. The depth of soul in every portrait as well as the breadth of political commentary is spell binding.
The exhibition is arranged roughly in chronological order and it is such a joy to follow her evolution from the ‘Rejects’, art school days to her latest works.
Go, if you can.

I’ve been having a gasp-athon since seeing the full runway pictures of Rick Owens’ latest women’s collection. It’s artistry personified.
It’s funny, when you worship someone like Rick as much as I do, being presented with a seminal piece like this collection is like being handed scripture or tablets from God. Totally. Blown. Away… Again.
