The V&A is one of my favorite museums in London. I missed it so much and was happy to visit it again last week during my short trip to London. I had the chance to see an amazing exposition devoted to the never forgotten and always admired beautiful and elegant Grace Kelly.
If you are interested in timeless style icons, fabulous vintage dresses (50s-70s), Hitchcock films, classic looks and incredibly voguish dress senses – please head off to the V&A and see the
“Grace Kelly – Style Icon” exhibit that runs till September 26, 2010.

The Kelly bag is there! Her countless Dior sunglasses are there! Her Yves Saint Laurent “Mondrian” dress and her  black frock from the ‘Rear Window’ film are there! Her stunning emerald green Givenchy dress is there along many many other incredible masterpiece dresses.

Don’t miss that exposition!

Mango smoothie-mania

I have always loved berry smoothies but since the beginning of this week I’ve developed some sort of a mango smoothie-mania.

I would often use mango as a salad ingredient or occasionally for a fool dessert but not so much as a base for a fruit shake … well, not anymore :)

I found out that MANGO blends perfectly with yogurts (plain or vanilla). Try it and you will end up with a superb, smooth and delicate pulp … that feels like a soft cloud in your mouth ….

Add a bit of muesli and whirl it all for a thick drinkable breakfast. Add a bit of crunchy cereals and enjoy a healthy dessert. Add a bit of honey and a few drops of lemon and simply drink it on its own.

These mango smoothies are super healthy: no additional sugar, no full fat milk or full yogurt, no ice-creams added!

My next smoothie adventure? I’m thinking: green and soy milk.

… with love to all smoothie lovers … Asia Jo

Yesterday I had dinner in a very cool place called MOMO. MOMO is attached to the busy and fancy Park Hotel in Amsterdam. The food was fine, the company great but what really caught my attention was a selection of fabulous photographs by the artist: Flore Zoé in the Gallery Zone.

The pictures inspired me enormously and I would love to recreate a similar fashion photo shoot one day. Zoé’s pictures are full of emotions, meanings, interpretations and concepts. She uses fabulous contrasts of colors, textures, forms and takes her viewers to an amazing world of storytelling.
