Happy Valentine's Day! May your day be filled with love, hugs, kisses... and thousands of flowers (#lowmaintenance). I couldn't resist stopping by The Ivy Chelsea Garden last night for a glass of champagne and a quick snap in front of the prettiest doorway in London.  Anything for the 'gram.

Volt, Berlin

Berlin is one of my favourite cities in the world: it's edgy, modern, creative and inexpensive, with a vibrant arts and thriving gastro scene.  I went twice last year, and a couple of times in 2006/ 2007, and I don't think I've eaten a bad meal there.  In December, after a chilly day outside visiting the Christmas markets, we hopped in an uber and headed southeast to the hipster Kreuzberg district for dinner at Restaurant VOLT.

I've wanted one of Bella Freud's iconic 1970 sweaters for ages.  I've admired them on Alexa ChungKate Moss, Poppy Delevingne and the rest of the British fashion set, and toyed with the idea of the black, red - the two original colours - the baby blue, grey, pastel pink, or festive editions in metallic silver or gold.  My boyfriend put an end to my indecisiveness with an excellent Christmas present: the classic, versatile black version, in the softest fine knit merino.  I love it!
