Eating

For the best burger in town, head to MEATliquor behind Oxford Street or sister restaurant MEATmarket in Covent Garden and order the Dead Hippie—pair it with a delish cocktail.

Insider’s tip: Don’t leave without a visit to Monmouth for coffee—the queue is worth the wait.

Emma Stone: The Side-Part Poster Child

Photos: zimbio.com

Hat’s off to Emma Stone's stylist, whoever you are. The starlet hasn't stepped out looking anything less than extraordinary in any of her recent appearances. Just yesterday, at the London premiere of her new movie, The Amazing Spider-man, she stunned in a to-die-for deep-V Ellie Saab jumpsuit. It’s a sassy piece of clothing, and exaggerated hair and makeup would have distracted from its total brilliance. But Stone understands balance and went with a smoky eye, understated pink lip, and super-sleek hair.

Guest Blogger: Sniffapalooza Tours London

Afternoon tea at Fortnum & Mason

Linda Pilkington of Ormonde Jayne

This week we tapped Karen Adams, the executive operations manager of the event-based fragrance group Sniffapalooza, to guest blog about some of the best scents she’s discovered on her recent travels. Today’s jaunt: London.

The bustling city streets, chic fashion, the Underground, the West End Theatre District…there are so many parallels between London and New York, yet so many differences to explore. We loved the streets of well-kept row houses adorned with flower boxes. And it’s so easy to acclimate to the delightful daily custom of afternoon tea. (Especially when the tea is served at Fortnum & Mason and the host is Victoria Christian of Clive Christian Perfumes.) We spent our London days studying the history of fragrance with Roja Dove at the Haute Parfumerie in Harrods, and delighting in private tours of Liberty and Selfridges. One of London’s treasures, tucked away at 12 The Royal Arcade 28 Old Bond Street, is the Ormonde Jayne Boutique. Perfumer Linda Pilkington presented her luxurious niche line and did perfume portraits to help us choose a favorite scent. We fancied the Tolu Collection for its velvety resins of golden frankincense, tolu, and myrrh.
