Kitchen bombIf your apartment in the city is bigger than the average 610 square feet the average apartment in NY seems to be, you might as well go somewhere else, all others read on, here’s a solution for your kitchen.

Sound familiar? You try to turn on the light and instead launch the blender? Or do you store your 2 pots and 1 pan in the oven? Or do you not even own an oven but a Kitchen Aid table grill? And let me guess, the overall styling is more reminiscent of your mom’s den than your Charles and Ray Eames’ Lounge Chair?

Knife Sonoma
MMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMThe samurai in me is still battling the engineer (see a couple posts further down) with a fairly uncertain outcome… but as a I was raving about the knives all evening long on Monday, I was given a little present today: another knive. Stop, don’t klick away, it’s not AVP here, different knives. VERY different knives:

Sugar coated knives. Well not really, but at first I thought I got a toy knife - did I bore everybody with my knife stories? Or was it the blood on the floor from my wounds?

Home
My oh my… I told you that traveling between the coasts basically means always missing out on the fun stuff because you are on the wrong side at the right time… Well this week was a particular case of bad luck.

Firstly I missed Valerie Garral spinning the discs at Glass on Wednesday - she does that every two weeks and it is always fabulous… So if you are tired of waiting in line at Marquee, because you don’t seem to be the high roller you’d want to be, don’t worry, go next door, enjoy a fun night without the drag… But this Wednesday was also the opening night for Home.

Endorfin
Endorfin is a German bicycle-manufacturer - but in a manner of speaking every piece is custom-made. Convoying this years Tour de France they began to deliver a limited edition of 101 cycles dedicated to this years 101st Tour.
The highlight is their frame - it is laminated with newspaper-reports about past Tours. A special lacquer coat ensures a long lasting durability. A carbon-saddle and handlebars, light-weight impellers, Dura-Ace,…every part complies highest standard.

Kleinekissen-Hamburg Gross
This is a story about our hometown “Hamburg” where Marcus and I met quite a few years ago, when we were still young so to speak!?

What attracted my attention today is the online-shop

www.shopfuerfrottier.de

that is all about terry cloth. If you thought in towels till this day - like I did - you’re wrong! Just some more examples - you know I love pics - what they do with terry cloth…

Lady LuckI told you on Monday, that I’ve accompanied the fashionista’s for a while.

For the moment and due to summer the only shoes you have to wear are all variations of sandals, havaianas, flipflops, espadrille and mule.

But what will be this autumn’s “Lady Luck”? Here is my answer…

Go for the coolest boots in the world…but only think in the category of a custom made item!

“Back at the ranch” might become your resource. For all your custom-made questions you’ll find them in Santa Fe, New Mexico but you also can shop online… I recommend a new belt for your sweet love!

The battle for space

Smartspaceny
“The battle for space” is obviously a tender subject… simply due to the mass of architectural discussion about that. Smart - even moveable - houses are in the thread.

Here comes a project from the city, where all this must have been invented - NYC.

What I like about “smartspaceny” is the fact, that it doesn’t look that “super-duper-everything-is-new-invented-style”! The interior design & furniture is quite conventional and the intelligence of the project is distilled to moving walls and floor-levels and things like the good old foldaway-bed.

Mask Flight 001Rule numero uno in transatlantic flight: Unless you fly first class, bring your own food!!!

And as I will be heading over to good old europe come the end of the week, I wanted to stock up on goods to bring on board. You know: Fiji water, Evian brumatisateur, Bliss Lemon and Sage hand lotion, PSP, etc… Especially those wonderful eye masks I saw at
Flight 001 the other day. I know they’ve been around for a while, but I finally remembered to buy them in advance (I usually remembered ON the airplane, duh…), so they came in today and they are so sweeeeet… Silent communication with the flight attendants… So, no more worries about getting an abrupt ‘excuse me sir, dinner?’ - ahem let me think… NO! As you can clearly indicate what your preference is… I for my part know which one I’ll be wearing…

Sayonara, zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz…

Shun knife
Traveling from the east coast to the west coast on a regular basis not just implies that you’ve got a pretty long commute, but also results in usually being on the wrong side for the fun events all the time… So coming back to the bay area for an extended time (granted a week is not usually considered extended but for me it is) required some serious indemnification cooking from my side to keep the crowd pleased…

So, make a list, check it twice, head out to the ferry building, fresh produce, great meat, wonderful bread - sorry no Ciao Bella today (still had some phenomenal dolcé from e-creamery, see below) and why not buy some little kichen utensils? You know, they can be considered gadgets…

I was entertaining the thought of having my Wüsthoff go head to head in ‘THE BATTLE OF THE BLADES’ with a japanese knife for a while now, but never got around buying one, so today was the day: Shun Pro Deba, VG10 Stainless steel, Pekka wood grip was the weapon of choice. And what a weapon it is…

Bell&RossHey man…are you really that rugged individualist that you claim to be?
You bear exceptional temperatures, undergo violent accelerations or withstand dangerous pressures? Probably you are - or sometimes just want to feel like - a jet pilot, an extreme diver, astronaut or a bomb disposal expert.

Here is my suggestion for your newest must-have to underline your mission - and I personally would love it on ladies wrists too…
