I noticed that Londoners have a certain way of communicating with each other on the tube - a form of communication that I am not unfamiliar with, as I've used it many times myself with other Londoners around the city. What is this communication tactic, you might ask? The eye contact, eye-roll and shrug all muddled into one look. It's almost a silent language, but quite entertaining to notice once you've picked up on it.
What do Nat King Cole, Etta James and Louis Armstrong have in common? Perhaps it's the sweet chorus of Dream a Little Dream of Me or the lilting melody of La Vie En Rose that pulls on your heart strings. Maybe it could be the bittersweet tenderness in nearly all of their lyrics. In my mind, jazz music bears the soul and the mind of those not afraid to love, even in the face of rejection.

The sultry smoke that gripped me was present on runways like Prada, Dolce & Gabbana and Giorgio Armani. Each designer put their own spin on a classic, sexy look and made it wearable for nearly any occasion.
