Anyone that follows Ever Fly Ms Q on Facebook or Twitter, knows that I'm a big fan of independent musical artists, and selectors (DJs). Yes, I can enjoy a mainstream club anthem as much as the next grrl, but I'm moved by artists pushing through to present dope music with creativity and passion.One of my fave soul singers in the musical firmament also happens to be a selector supreme, Kim Hill. She formerly added the soupçon of hotness that helped to differentiate the OG Black Eyed Pea [..]

The LIBERTINE event "La Dolce Vita" on 1 Feb 2012 was close to my heart: the iconic Fellini movie playing in the background, Martini/Ultra-lounge mood music on the hi-fi, Phuket's bon vivant, libertine-set in a convivial state of mind and Chef Vincent's delicious interpretation of Italian & Roman classics.MenuVia Veneto Aperitivofresh mandarin & basil vodka martini*Melanzane Parmigianaan eggplant slice pan-fried in extra virgin olive oil, topped with homemade tomato sauce & mozzarella di bu [..]

May I speak frankly? I am stating a fact when I say that I have been to many a fabulous event and soirée - in many of the world's most desirable locations. However, I clearly had not seen fabulousity (© KLS) on a Russian scale - which seems to be equal to jurassic, baller-ific proportions...and I remain humbled.My initial review of the Beyond Party event website immediately raised the bar and I realized that we may not be in Kansas anymore: popstar performances? celebrity deejay?

One of my fave wine haunts in bella Roma, Trimani il Wine Bar, is always one of the first spots I visit upon arrival. It's also one of my last stops before departure - can't resist filling my suitcase with litres of their artisanal olive oil, grown and produced just outside of the city.Trimani marries the best of both worlds:Trimani, a stylish, yet casual, enoteca (wine bar and restaurant) in the vicinity of the Termini train station, is one of my favourite places for sampling rich Itali [..]

I have a confession to make - I've become a bit frustrated living in my tropical paradise of Phuket. As much as I adore eating at hidden Thai gems, from market stalls to noodle shops, my "grand" side needs to be fed occasionally (or f

Smash hit - perfect sunset cocktail for sipping in the garden. Since my fave French fille brought me the fragrant, sweet (& organic) pineapples that I used in this cocktail, I decided to name it in honor of her place of birth - the island of

I was recently invited to a cocktail party for a "small yet special group of Phuket's most interesting people". Hmm, was this shameless bit of flattery the high-end version of spam? But then my interest was piqued when I saw that it

My riff on the classic Kir Royale. I don't like to use bottled syrups and/or flavored liqueurs in cocktails. I much prefer to create the fruit flavors using...wait for it...fruit. Oh yeah, and I also don't love blackberries, so wanted to switch it up

'All roads lead to Rome' is a refrain constantly repeated in my mind whenever I am away from Rome. It is a gorgeous, modern city that seems only one step removed from its ancient roots; filled with high-spirited people who celebrate life with th

One of the most delicately fragrant cakes I've ever made - full of lemon juice and lemon zest. Super moist from crème fraîche (and a little rum), this was the perfect accompaniment to a lovely illy espresso.

Of all of the genres that make up my musical lexicon, hip hop still expresses best who I was (as a baby b-girl) and who I am now - passionately outspoken and fly! lol
