Paris is in the thick of Fashion Week. All the big fashion names are strutting their fall '11 designs...Karl Lagerfeld, Galliano, Chanel...etc.

Unfortunately, I'm too busy with classes and schoolwork to even notice the glamorous people galavanting all over Paris. So, my access to Paris fashion week consists of quick glances on style.com.

So far, the best i've seen is from Sonia Rykiel - she's bringing the pompom back...well, i'm not sure if it was ever IN, but it sure as hell should be now!!


Human pompoms!!

Ottolenghi. A difficult name to remember, but once you've had their vanilla rose cupcake, impossible to forget.

The London cafe/kitchen owned by two Middle Eastern-born chefs is full of mouthwatering culinary delights.

Seated at a communal table (at the Notting Hill location), we were served a beautiful beet salad, root veggies, delicious fish cakes and other yummy meets and sides. The desserts looked amazing - especially the oversized black currant meringues.

If you can't make it to London - next best thing is their cook book...which, by the way, would look great on my kitchen shelf...hint, hint ;)
