Coffee paradise in Shanghai

For this whole week I have no coffee at home. I ordered a huge pack of my favourite coffee beans on Internet and I was waiting…So imagine this feeling when you wake up in the morning and, oh God, there is NOT even one coffee bean in the entire apartment. Then you, with your hands shaking and heart beating unevenly, start to think about the nearest decent place to buy coffee. And in Shanghai, with population of more than 20 million people, there is a huge amount of great places to drink coffee. And “Cafe del Volcan” is definitely one of them. It is a teeny tiny place on Yonkang road with just couple of tables but great GREAT coffee. I went there in the afternoon and there were almost no people there, so it was a perfect time to enjoy a cup of cappuccino and a chocolate cake outside.

So for great coffee head to  80 Yongkang Lu.

Bucket bags!

No satchels, no clutches, no totes or hobos!!! Bucket bags are a definite winner of this season. In different sizes and different colours, bucket bags are perfect for almost all occasions. I love them for the excellent shape, when you can fit your container with lunch or even workout uniform. I’ve got bucket bags in large, medium and small:)) The biggest is for everyday errands, medium size is for weekend brunches and gallery visits and the smallest are for parties! Super convenient and chic. What is your favourite bag?

From Shanghai with love. XOXO

Liu Wen for Numero China

Again and again I proclaim my love for black and white photos. They make us focus on emotions of the photos. I truly love this editorial from the September issue of Numero China. Styled by Tim Lim, this photo shoot reminds me of detective movies from 50’s or 60’s – the same atmosphere… I love Liu Wen’s huge lashes and natural hair. What do you say?

From Shanghai with love. XOXO
