Things We Love for Spring | 27.02.16

“You deserve a love who wants you disheveled, with everything and all the reasons that wake you up in a haste and the demons that won’t let you sleep.

You deserve a love who makes you feel safe, who can consume this world whole if he walks hand in hand with you; someone who believes that his embraces are a perfect match with your skin.

You deserve a love who wants to dance with you, who goes to paradise every time he looks into your eyes and never gets tired of studying your expressions.

You deserve a love who listens when you sing, who supports you when you feel shame and respects your freedom; who flies with you and isn’t afraid to fall.

You deserve a love who takes away the lies and brings you hope, coffee, and poetry” —Frida Kahlo

The Saint-Tropez Zip & the new issue of Vogue Paris, pretty, pretty underthings and golden Guccis, here are a few things we love this week for Springtime . . .

Paywalls are justified, even though they are annoying. It costs money to produce good writing, to run a website, to license photographs. A lot of money, if you want quality. Asking people for a fee to access content is therefore very reasonable. You don’t expect to get a print subscription to the newspaper gratis, why would a website be different?

Notes from the Weekend & a Few Lovely Links

THERE IS AN URGENCY to life here in the UK, that we didn’t find in Spain and it seems to be directly dependent on the weather. It’s an urgency that’s not only sensible, but necessary to help manage the disappointment that will inevitably come during the course of a British summer …
