Okay, my friends, we’re diving across the pond to paradise today, but maybe not the palm-fringed beaches you might be imagining. instead we actually go to beautiful, old Londontown – and another surprise, we don’t eat traditional English food. instead, we’ve got Sri Lankan cooking with contemporary ingredient-focused dishes, topped with a fiery island accent at Paradijs soho . the dishes here made my mouth water and are based on family recipes influenced by portuguese, malaysian, south indian and dutch cuisine and served in a very brutalist inspired interior – think spare steel and concrete but somehow still cozy and charming. we’re going casual and feminine today, with a sweet printsummery cardigan worn over a matching black crop top and gathered skirt . add some cool but comfy to that woven black flats my favorite bucket hat a really chic shoulder bag and a whole bunch of baubles . before flying to London, or on the flight over, I recommend reading a classic – Mrs. dallowayby Virginia Wolfe. the novel is set over the course of a single day in the life of a woman in 1920s London. There are flowers to buy, outfits to choose from, as well as a visit from a former lover and the tragic fate of a young war veteran unable to adjust to life in post-war London. Ms Woolf’s enchanting account of this ordinary day takes us into the minds, perceptions and emotions of an amazingly diverse and vibrant cast of characters. brilliant!
