Try to talk normally, asian online dating as with any other person at your level. Be playful. Don't use a selfie as your profile photo! Listening to you talk about them can make him feel awkward, especially if you brag or bag them. And now, silence. Be complimentary. Aim to be polite and respectful of the other person, showing that you're keen to get to know him or her better. Focus on the other person. Make eye contact. Set time aside for exercise in the days before the date, whether it's yoga or push ups. Tell her she looks beautiful, lovely, gorgeous, or compliment her hair, her eyes, her lips or her outfit. It doesn't give him a chance to reject you on the spot, which makes things easier on you, obviously. Com and others. Introduce yourself. She will agree, and think to herself, He's boring me now. Getting to know her friends, especially if they like you, can really help you out here. Even slight lateness can set a miserable tone for the rest of the date. How to Find a Date at the Beach. And B. If you have made a mistake and you said sorry yet she keeps shouting at you that's fine!

Candy Florale

23.04.2014 | Beauty | BY:

Blended by perfumer Daniela Andrier, under the creative direction of Miuccia Prada, Candy Florale is the latest fragrance from the Italian Fashion House. The idea for the new scent stems from an imaginary flower, one created for Candy herself. The flower had to be wondrous and sophisticated, simply unique. Its lush blossom contains an uplifting mix of floral notes, embodying the many facets of Candy’s character, while the warmth and honey accents reflect Candy’s sensual essence.

Candy is Léa Seydoux. The beautiful French actor stars in the Prada Candy Florale’s advertising campaign, where we find her in both film and print visuals created for Prada by Steven Meisel. He captures Candy in a dreamlike state, where the frangrance is lifting her up, defying gravity.

Life_Isn_t_Good_It_s_Excellent_1987

The Yes No Quality of Dreams

22.04.2014 | Art | BY:

The ICA’s exhibition featuring London-based poet and artist David Robilliard’s paintings is now open. The selection of paintings being shown combine figurative elements with text taken directly from Robilliard’s own poems. The evocative prose alludes to intimate sexual encounters and passing infatuations that ultimately conjure an image of 1980s queer London.

The ICA plans to release a new 80 page book to coincide with the exhibition which will include an introduction by Gregor Muir (ICA Executive Director) and main text by Andrew Wilson (Curator of Modern & Contemporary British Art at Tate Britain), as well as host an event on May 2nd where Gregor Muir is joined by Louisa Buck (critic and contemporary art correspondent for The Art Newspaper), Toby Mott (The Mott Collection) and Charlie Porter (Men’s Fashion Critic for the Financial Times) to consider the paintings, drawings and poetry of London artist David Robilliard.

David Robilliard: The Yes No Quality of Dreams, exhibition, Upper Gallery: open until 15 June 2014

Record Store Day

18.04.2014 | Music | BY:

With Easter weekend upon us, Soho’s independent record stores and retailers have teamed up to bring us one hell of an event that’s guaranteed to make this bank holiday one to remember. On Saturday 19th April Record Store Day will descend onto Berwick Street; Central London’s largest concentration of independent record stores and go-to destination for vinyl collectors since the 80s, to bring us a day of live music, vinyl culture and festivity.

As the vinyl revival continues to escalate with a total of 780,000 vinyls sold in the UK alone in 2013, the highest number in over 16 years and Record Store Day now a worldwide phenomenon, expect Berwick Street to be brimming and bustling with music lovers and bands alike as seven artists including 80s pop sensation Adam Ant and Irish Band The September Girls take to the Main Stage to bring us a free outdoor gig alongside DJs, music quizzes, and parties in stores. For the vinyl lovers, Reckless Records, Sister Ray, The Music & Video Exchange, Sounds of The Universe, BH Soho and Phonica will open their doors to the public from 8 a.m. bringing us limited edition vinyl releases and copious amounts of vinyl records to browse through across the day.

For the fashion and retail lovers Oliver Spencer will be throwing a first-rate party in store with their very own DJ, drinks and vinyl fair followed by Weekend Offender offering a generous discount on clothing and a free haircut in store for customers who make a purchase. If that isn’t enough to get you off your feet and marching down to Berwick Street already, Nudie Jeans and Foot Patel’s flagship stores will also be participating in the event and thriving throughout the day.

Amongst the DJs and in-store parties, the world street food traders from Berwick Street’s fruit and vegetable market are also proud to participate in Record Store Day catering vinyl fans with pizza, sandwiches, falafel and fresh produce. As Berwick Street is also home to some of London’s most in demand restaurants you certainly won’t be heading home this Easter weekend with an empty stomach. Polpetto will be serving Venetian dishes from their open kitchen alongside Ember Yard, a tapas restaurant inspired by Spanish and Italian methods of cooking over charcoal, delivering a menu of artisan cheese, meats and vegetarian plates.

Offering free entry to all and a stellar line up to boot, round up friends and family and head down to Berwick Street, as this year’s Record Store Day is certainly not to be missed.

It's Taken Me All Of My Life To Find You

It’s Taken Me All of My Life to Find You

17.04.2014 | Art | BY:

Holy, holy women. That’s the phrase that rang repeatedly in my mind when I left Lazarides gallery’s latest exhibition. Artist Karim Zeriahen presents It’s Taken Me All of My Life to Find You, a small but valuable collection of multimedia works that were created to challenge our notion of individual identity, both humorously and poetically.

The collection begins with five odes to women who Zeriahen believes all share strength, originality and freedom as common traits. The acrylic and black flocking serve as a beautiful tribute to the first, Julia Peyton-Jones, all the way along to the fifth, Victoire De Pourtales. Each work presents a knowing and intimate depiction of the subject and establishes the artist’s preoccupation with influential women.

In hindsight, room two feels somewhat out of place amongst all the she pedestals. A series of colourful neon squiggles all entitled ‘Meaningless’ are vaguely provocative, though on some level feel like a nightclub prelude to what we know is about to come – original footage of Kate Moss played out in a purpose-built confessional. It is the clash between this nocturnal, sexy vibe and impending religious self-reflection that’s really interesting.

It was there, in front of the artist’s crescendo, kneeling in front of Kate as she faded in and out of the light, that Zeriahen’s message really crystallized. As the seconds turn into minutes and you’re staring at an indifferent yet judgemental Kate in pure wonder, you absolutely do wonder who you are. As well as wondering who she really is too. But that’s the thing about holy, holy women isn’t it.

Chanel x Monster

16.04.2014 | Fashion , Music | BY:

Over the last few weeks images of Karl Lagerfeld have been surfacing where we find the designer sporting some very cool headgear. It has now been confirmed that the collaboration between Chanel and Monster is going ahead and the first images have been released. The headphones are in keeping with the iconic Chanel aesthetic – quilted leather, double ‘C’ monogram and matching case. We are yet to know a release date, stockists or price, but hopefully we won’t be kept waiting too long.

No Rest For The Wicked

15.04.2014 | Music | BY:

Lykke Li is set to release her third studio album, I Never Learn, on May 5th. The latest single from the record, No Rest For The Wicked is a sorrowful tune, with an emotional video to boot. The album itself was written just after the Swedish singer/songwriter ended a relationship and this track was written as she was “packing up her shit,” and moving out.

If this song is anything to go by, we can expect the new album to be a darker shade of Swedish pop than it’s predecessors. No Rest For The Wicked is the second track to be released from I Never Learn and was directed by Tarik Saleh, who was also responsible for the intimate video Love Me Like I’m Not Made Of Stone released last month.

Pre-order the album on iTunes.

10.04.2014 | Fashion | BY:

Mount Street is quickly becoming one of the top shopping destinations in London with Celine opening it’s first UK flagship last month. Linda Farrow, the luxury British eyewear specialist has also opened shop on same road. The residence is the first first flagship boutique for the brand and acts as a gallery where you can find a selection of unisex eyewear from Linda Farrow and its celebrated international designer collaborations. Those of which include Dries Van Noten, The Row, Alexander Wang, KRISVANASSCHE, Oscar de la Renta, Erdem, Matthew Williamson, Prabal Gurung, Agent Provocateur, Jeremy Scott and Walter Van Beirendonck.

Highlights include Lena Dunham’s brilliantly quirky Best Friends (Rachel Antonoff Fall 2013); SHOWstudio Head of Fashion Film Marie Schuller’s exploration of Asian Couture; Kathryn Ferguson’s Irish fantasia Mathair, plus a selection of shorts by Miu Miu.
