Last night we hosted a rollicking, whisky-fuelled Burns Supper in TriBeCa. As the nether regions of New York City appear to be particularly devoid of Haggis-es (yes, that’s the plural of “Haggis” in my book), we nominated one of my owner’s friends, yes indeed a human being, to represent the Haggis. Per tradition, the order of ceremonies was as follows: (1) A welcome speech from the host (2) the addressing of the haggis (we toasted the ‘honorary haggis’ with Glenmorangie 12) (3) A toast of the lassies and (4) a reply to the ‘toast of the lassies’. Fine, for you Gen Y-ers for whom none of this makes any sense, you can learn more about the Burns Supper tradition, here. The main point though, is that it was riotous fun.
Anyway, we slept off the whisky, but awoke to the above scene. Now we have to go to a wedding at the Brooklyn Botanic Gardens … it’s going to be very, beary, frigid. Promise we’ll bring back some pics. It’s 10am, but I for one, need a drink.

Today, my owner took me along to Bergdorf and we drooled over Californian design guru, Kelly Wearstler’s, home pieces. I don’t, for the most part go in for drooling, but this was exceptionally divine. What’s even more divine? Her blog, My Vibe, My Life.
Do take a look, you can thank me later.

A profusion of glorious objects. We bears LOVE profusions. Especially profusions of objects, but also profusions of anything and everything else.

A lacquer box and Kelly’s celebrated be-jewelled can opener.

A stunning, punky head. I wanted to take this home for my sculpture collection (remind me one day to blog about my art collection) but for today, at least, it wasn’t to be.

I snagged a copy of Indian Vogue at Delhi airport and now that my owner’s at work for the day, I can read it in peace. Some lovely Celine sweaters in here… do you think they come in my size?

It’s a new year and we’re back in NYC. As you can see I’m hanging with my homeboy (OK, while I am, like my owner, English to the core, when in New York, speak as the New Yorkers do) Max the pug. He’s a pretty sedentary chap - doesn’t seem to move much.
I am also sitting on one of my Christmas presents, an anthology by Chuck D (that’s Charles Dickens for all you British bears reading me on the world wide web from back home).

We were in Jodphur, India on Christmas day. During the day I was dragged around the dusty fort - though I must admit the views were spectacular. Then we caught a polo match. By the end I was worn and weary and ready for a G&T. However, when we got back to Umaid Bhavan Palace my owner one-upped even that. Mulled wine and a Christmas Tree. Perfect.

Hope you had a BEARY MERRY CHRISTMAS.

Today I was taken to look at Barney’s holiday window displays. The theme was Disney. How trite, I thought, as I traveled in my owner’s Falabella bag on the way there. By the way, she quite unceremoniously stuffed me into it. Anyway, with regards to the triteness, I couldn’t have been more wrong. The highlight / lynchpin was a specially made animated short featuring Minnie Mouse. For reasons altogether unknown, she is plunged headlong into a hallucinatory trip after viewing a Lanvin dress in a Parisian shop window. Trust me, it gets better.

There are ensembles by Balenciaga and Proenza Schouler and cameos from Alber Elbaz, Carinne Roitfeld, Anna Dello Russo, Lady Gaga and Captain Hook.

Goofy is modeling Balmain.

What more can I say?
