This cocktail is inspired by the glamour and sophistication of the red carpet and the famous scarlet hue of Louboutin’s soles. The needle and thread represent the architecture and the exquisite French craftsmanship involved in his work. Devised to raise monies for the Elton John Aids Foundation. Drink it and enjoy!

Designer wear sales proliferate. A new location for Brick Lane designer sales is in Hamstead Town Hall this weekend with labels including Belstaff, Prada, Fendi & Miu Miu. Still our very favourite designer sales are The Designer Warehouse Sales which take place every six to ten weeks (check the calendar on the site - next Friday kicks off the forthcoming sale). Replenish wardrobes with accessible designer labels at affordable prices downstairs, or mosey upstairs to the designer floor for labels such as Celine, Galliano, Westwood and many more at 50% or less. Still expensive but these are definitely investment pieces and are bargains compared to the prices in Bond Street. If you're looking for a designer bargain the trek to North London is definitely worth it!

Off to the private view of the Gerhard Richter exhibition. Can't wait to see the variety of his genius from squeegy paintings to portraits of his euthanised German aunt alongside his Nazi uncle. A celebration of his 80th year and works spanning nearly five decades.

"No one wants to die. Even people who want to go to heaven don’t want to die to get there. And yet death is the destination we all share. No one has ever escaped it. And that is as it should be, because Death is very likely the single best invention of Life. It is Life’s change agent. It clears out the old to make way for the new. Right now the new is you, but someday not too long from now, you will gradually become the old and be cleared away. Sorry to be so dramatic, but it is quite true. Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma – which is living with the results of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of other’s opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary."

Not one of our favourite designers - though we are in the minority - Stella's Paris collection for SS12 demonstrated both skill and confidence and blew us away. Pyjama cool prints, flowing fabrics and sexy cut-outs. We want want want!
