LONDON. As I mentioned last week, I just got back from a short trip to London with Kenzo parfums and thought I’d share some pictures with you so here we go!

during our stay in London me & my boyfriend celebrated our 5th anniversary and found this delicious cake in our room with a note from the lovely people at Browns Hotel wishing us a happy anniversary, such a sweet gesture!

Did a quick (ok, probably not so quick) stop at Kenzo and tried on some of my fall favorites, fell in love with pretty much every single piece

Later that afternoon I had the pleasure of meeting the famous industrial designer/architect Ron Arad at his studio to talk a bit about the perfume bottle he created for Kenzo’s new perfume Madly Kenzo.
