SHE LOVES :

>> DARKSIDE – Nicolas Jaar and Dave Harrington somehow come together with different perspectives to make some kind of perfect progressive-techno, Cuban rock and roll masterpiece (that works)! Perfect listening for a mellow Summer evening with a glass of chilled wine.
>> PALAIS DE TOKYO – I love going to galleries and the raw, industrial grandeur of Palais de Tokyo, with its huge yet playful light installations and reverberating bass music, it’s the best gallery space I’ve ever visited.
>> Haw-lin.com – online mood board full of GREAT design and imagery.
>> FUMO – hands down the most heavenly combination of Italian cuisine and tapas, where the food is imported from the markets of Milan to my humble hometown of Birmingham.
>> FOAM MAGAZINE – my boyfriend just moved to Amsterdam to work for photography magazine ‘Foam’ – It’s a great looking publication providing a balance of authoritative imagery and interviews with amazingly progressive graphic design.
