Why I quit my job to learn German

I had become part of a corporate rat-race and got attached to position, a nice salary and 5-star travel in Europe.

My favorite fall/winter coat from Karen Millen

Karen Millen is one of my favorite fashion labels for tailored styles in coats and jackets. Every time I am in London, I try to pick up at least one outfit from the local KM store to add to my wardrobe. It is even better if I can make a trip to the KM outlet store in Bicester Village.
