Sneaky Holiday - Dubrovnik, Croatia

I kept this one quiet but I went on holiday to Dubrovnik, Croatia last week and it so happened that the first ever Dubrovnik Fashion Week was happening at the same time.

Dubrovnik stole my heart and I can't wait to come back there in a few years time. The Old Town is surrounded by the beautiful sea and has a harbor, quirky little side streets that lead off the main road where you find cute little cafes and small hand made jewellery boutiques (I got a beautiful vintage style silver ring as a souvenir with a large turquoise stone in the middle, surrounded by tiny coral stones all around for about £48). The food is fresh, especially the sea food and cooked to perfection. Not everyone can afford to eat at Gil's, it's pretty pricey a Mojito set me back about £10 but I recommend at least popping in for a drink for the amazing view and service.

I also came across FAAR Magazine whilst picking up my passes at the DFW Press Office. Had a quick flick through and liked what I saw - check out the site.

And whilst I'm on the subject of magazines, also check out PUSH IT Magazine. The magazine is Croatia, Serbia and Bosnia-Herzegovina's 1st International style magazine mixing the best of the Balkan's with the rest of the world. I've been following their progress for a while and like the look of their photoshoots. Check it.


The Michael Jackson Memorial Post

I've always thought it a bit bizarre how people overreact over a famous person's death and take it so personally, especially when they have never even met the person but I have been deeply saddened by MJ's death as I grew up on his music and still can't believe that we won't be seeing him moonwalk for the last time. Not only was he a musical genius, a revolutionary dancer but a style icon in his own right (I didn't even realize how much people jacked his style until I saw the video for "Bad" on TV again. Two words - Russell Brand). As my own tribute, I was going to create MJ inspired looks on Polyvore but it doesn't seem to be working today (I might try again tomorrow). So I leave you with a photo of his changing style and recomend you watch the live coverage of the Memorial Service right now.
