"Nothing has really happened until  it has been recorded" - V.W. The human mind is weak. We need to write things down to remember them. "If you don’t have a to do list, you are more likely not to get something done" - my friend said. We also need to write them down to analyze them and understand them. Some write journals to focus their minds. How we write things, and what we write, invariably influences how we perceive things. The victors write history. Any occurrence is fleeting in time, and generally not experienced by many. So you have to write it down to give it greater relevance. Go on - #record, #write, take pictures, #share. #thoughtoftheday #london #bloomsburygroup

Amongst rows of #dutyfree plastic bags, screaming children, an ocean of #Adidas trainers (fake or not, who knows), waiting for a cheap airline, crammed like a cattle, direction East, I’m trying to forget myself in pages of #thebigfashionissue #September #Vogue. Such grotesque contrast between the airbrushed pages and the stuffy waiting room, I’m not sure whether it’s an #escapism, #torture or pure #art. #nofilter on life. #nolounge #connecting #travel #lietuva  #holiday  (at London Luton Airport (LTN))
Virginia Woolf exhibition at the National Portrait Gallery reveals more about the arts and visions of the London based Bloomsbury Group of intellectuals in the first half of the 20th century than about the writer herself.
Virginia Woolf was at the epicentre of post-impressionist movement in London. An intellectual explorer, a bisexual fighter for women’s rights, a pacifist and social activist - “Thinking is my fighting” - she said. Still, through numerous photographs and paintings exhibited, as an influencer Woolf is apparent but as a human being and a person, she escaped me completely but for one curious fact. When Virginia met Sigmund Freud, he ceremoniously gave her narcissus. 
Going to exhibition was filling the gap in my knowledge. When I think first half of the 20th century I don’t think only #Paris or #NewYork anymore. Now I think #London too. #VirginiaWoolf #Bloomsburygroup #museum #review #Portraitgallery @nationalportraitgallery #women

The most amazing random #moments in London. After a drink at a local pub, we popped into the local hat shop that has been around for 49 years! Unable to sell me a hat, Morris asked Tom for his advice on bonds. So chaps continued on shares and hedge funds. Locals connect. #london #hat #panamahat  (at Le Monde)
#Tuesday morning #inspiration. Jacqueline #Kennedy Onassis commonly known as “Jackie” - a #styleicon, a photographer, a book editor, the #president’s wife. And I love this #pinkdress she is wearing. Does anyone know who the dress is by or who took the photo and when? @vintage_vogue  @fashionhistory @americanfashion
We went to see #God’sPocket as, frankly, the Welcome to New York was sold out. But trust me – one of the better films this year and one of the last one with Philip Seymour #Hoffman. No man is a hero in this crime drama. At moments Tarantinesque, the #film portrays the complexity of simple lives in an impoverished mob run neighbourhood. Contrary to what some critics say, I thought the balance between humour and drama is perfectly struck here to a potent grotesque effect. And it is beautifully shot: the picture has a tint of an analogue video camera hue of yellows and browns. Finally, I think it has more dimensions than the American Hustler – the more famous brother of this sort of drama. Really recommend. #cinema #filmreview
