One year more, one year less...

A Time for Everything

1 There is a time for everything,
and a season for every activity under heaven:

2 a time to be born and a time to die,
a time to plant and a time to uproot,

3 a time to kill and a time to heal,
a time to tear down and a time to build,

4 a time to weep and a time to laugh,
a time to mourn and a time to dance,

5 a time to scatter stones and a time to gather them,
a time to embrace and a time to refrain,

6 a time to search and a time to give up,
a time to keep and a time to throw away,

7 a time to tear and a time to mend,
a time to be silent and a time to speak,

8 a time to love and a time to hate,
a time for war and a time for peace.

9 What does the worker gain from his toil? 10 I have seen the burden God has laid on men. 11 He has made everything beautiful in its time. He has also set eternity in the hearts of men; yet they cannot fathom what God has done from beginning to end. 12 I know that there is nothing better for men than to be happy and do good while they live. 13 That everyone may eat and drink, and find satisfaction in all his toil—this is the gift of God. 14 I know that everything God does will endure forever; nothing can be added to it and nothing taken from it. God does it so that men will revere him.

- Ecclesiastes 3:1-14 (New International Version)

Mercedes-Benz Mixed Tape 15

Mixed Tape 15 now online – the latest urban sounds on the move!

Among the latest crop of international newcomers, it is the youngest that cause the biggest splash: While headliner Ben Westbeech enjoys the unanimous respect of London’s radio scene, the not-so-secret future queen of UK garage and dubstep, 21-year-old Lady Destiny, juggles music with journalism, college studies and her own radio show. Not to forget California’s sassy hip-hop duo Diva’s Harmony, whose younger half still attends high school. Compared to these hyper-talented youngsters, British duo My Toys Like Me and Norwegian singer Kristin Hild might seem almost grown-up, yet their uniquely infectious soul and pop gems are equally ahead of their peers.

I acknowledge mine”

A fragrance with a strong personality and a contrasting golden sweetness.

The olfactory pyramid has been "deconstructed" to reveal three facets of INSOLENT femininity that suit everyone's taste and mood... sparkling violets, glints of red berries and rays of iris

Without models we're just a pile of washing


1. They look good in and out of clothes

2. They don't cost much to feed

3. They don't take up a lot of room on the lounge

4. They read books with pictures

5. They know other models

6. They don't hurt when they fall out of a window and land on top of you

KenzoAmour, a unique voyage with the new women’s fragrance by Kenzo…

Everything begins with a bird. A colorful imaginary bird gliding gracefully from one side of the box to the other. Then, the bottles, in three colors, depending on the size—fuchsia, soft white and orange. Sensually elongated bottles that evoke a bird, symbolizing a voyage of love taking flight…

And last but not least, the fragrance. Enchanting.
The perfume evokes a succession of lovely places with vibrant colors and scents, melding frangipani blossoms from Bali or Borobudur, cherry blossoms from Japan, thanaka wood (worn by women and children in Myanmar), incense and rice, vanilla and white tea from China…

KenzoAmour, the new women’s perfume by Kenzo, is both an evocation and the fruit of a languid voyage of love in Asia, punctuated by encounters, soft sensations and perfumes bursting with life. Olfactory souvenirs brought back from a journey through India, Indonesia, Japan, Myanmar and Thailand.

KenzoAmour…a voyage of love…

The Pirates of Penzance

Lock up your daughters, the pirates are coming to town! Peppered with unforgettable melodies and tongue-twisting songs, The Pirates of Penzance is one of the most popular operettas ever written. So it's high time for a new production from the top-notch team headed by director Stuart Maunder. It promises to be a riot the moment the ship reaches shore.

In spite of being apprenticed to a Pirate King as a child, Frederic has led a very sheltered life. So when he arrives in Penzance with his boisterous shipmates, there are a few surprises in store for him! It all ends happily, but not before he's dodged the Old Bill, fallen in love and made some rather inconvenient discoveries. Anthony Warlow stars as the soft-centred Pirate King.

Deep within a forest, at the summit of a volcano, exists an extraordinary world—a world where something else is possible. A world called Varekai.

From the sky falls a solitary young man, and the story of Varekai begins. Parachuted into the shadows of a magical forest, a kaleidoscopic world populated by fantastical creatures, this young man sets off on an adventure both absurd and extraordinary. On this day at the edge of time, in this place of all possibilities, begins an inspired incantation to life rediscovered.

The word varekai means "wherever" in the Romany language of the gypsies the universal wanderers. This production pays tribute to the nomadic soul, to the spirit and art of the circus tradition, and to the infinite passion of those whose quest takes them along the path that leads to Varekai.
