7 Thursday Thoughts

Hello darlings,

On this beautiful, sunny Thursday, I have had quite a few ideas and revelations. Not only that, but also I have heard about a ton of great upcoming events that I’d like to share with you.

1. I am SO excited for Twitter Day in Paris tomorrow! Check out this link for more information on Jour de Tweets à Paris, happening Friday, April 20.

2. I was devastated by the news of the Boston Marathon bombing, and my heart goes out to everyone who was affected by this tragedy. As a runner, I can only imagine the contrast of elatedness with terror. As a way to support Boston, Bryan Pirolli has created the event #BostonStrongParis. This 5 km will be this coming Monday, April 22. Meeting time is at 7 p.m. at Bastille in front of the Opera House, and the run will finish up at Concorde. Hope to see you there!

Classic Burberry Trench Redefined at London Fashion Week 2013

Who can resist a perfect Burberry piece?

London Fashion Week has just wrapped up, and browsing through the collections, I was mesmerized by the twists that Burberry has put on their trademark item, the trench. The varieties of color, fabric, and texture really made the collection stand out. I would absolutely love to stop by the Regent Street store and pick up any one of these classic models!

Tomorrow, I’ll be writing about London’s hottest new concept bar. Hint: it’s fast!
