Soneva Fushi in the Glorious Maldives

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on January 15, 2014 by deroemer

We were lucky enough to spend some of our Christmas holidays in the Maldives at the most amazing Soneva Fushi Resort, truly the most impressive hotel we have ever stayed at.  They follow a SLOW LIFE philosophy which permeates everywhere you look on the resort and they take environmental issues and responsibilities very seriously.  Something very close to our hearts at De Roemer.

“What fun”, the only form of transport on the island!

Whilst we were there we overlapped with some very interesting guests.   Justin was delighted to meet Buzz Aldrin, the second man on the moon and to dive on the beautiful coral reef with him more than once! Buzz at the grand age of 83 was diving twice a day! We were very impressed.

There was also a rather arty group of about 15, the ‘Gathering’ as they became known.  Artists, musicians, directors, creatives and actors.  Tilda Swinton and her man, artist, Sandro Kopp were amongst them along with Michael Stipe of REM fame, to name just 3.  All terribly nice and keen to make a difference to the world as a collective and as individuals.  Known voices can travel quite a distance so we hope that their influence can have some sort of impact on our environmental issues.

It was so lovely to spend time with Sonu and Eva, the visionaries and owners of Soneva.  They really are wonderful people and they care so much about everything and all the small details as well as being hugely loved by all their staff, family and friends.

What a truly beautiful island and how fabulous to be able to spend some time on it, we would like to go again and again and again….

HP Connected

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on July 11, 2013 by deroemer

Being part of HP’s Influencers Advisory Board has many advantages and one of them is getting to see some fantastic musicians perform small and intimate concerts, through HP’s collaboration with Universal Music ‘Connected Music’ is the strap line. This week had the De Roemer A team heading off to Fabric to see Iggy Azalea. Great night. We love HP and we are excited about De Roemer’s upcoming collaboration with them.


Cannes Film Festival

Cannes 4 2013

The HP Influencers Advisers Board

What a blast Cannes was this year! I feel incredibly privileged to be part of HP’s Influencers Advisors Board which has met at the Film Festival for the last two years for four days of brainstorming, tech smoozing, red carpeting and generally being spoiled by the giant that is HP.


Tony Hughes, Miggy Gibbs and Justin Packshaw

HP are one of the principle sponsors of the whole event so we get to have a very lucky insight into it all. All the glitz is great fun and we managed to see the showing of La Vie D’Adele, which went on to win the Palme d’Or – a truly extraordinary film for no other reason than the sublime and brave acting from the two leads which is quite breath-taking.



Justin Packshaw, Tony Hughes and Chris Mclennan

However for me, the icing on the cake, is hanging out, listening and learning from the other Board members, all of whom bring an amazing spin and insight to the technological table. What a bright, colourful and impressive lot they are.


Yasmin Mills, Callum Best, Melissa Odabash

Thank you to the gorgeous Melissa O’Malley for pulling it all together, to Page, Randall, Irv, Jean-Pierre for opening our eyes as to where this technological revolution is taking us and to the rest of the HP team for helping to make it an inspirational few days. Thanks also to the lovely Yasmin Mills for including me in more of the glamorous Film Festival craziness.

Watch this space as De Roemer is about to do something incredibly exciting with HP …….

We had a very civilised party which we co-hosted with Yasmin Mills, girl about town and all round beauty!  She came along with her gorgeous girls, Maddy and Laurie plus a number of their pretty girl friends.  Beautiful people came and went throughout the evening along with a few of our very own fabulous and extraordinarily beautiful friends.  We took a few pictures but not too many!!

      Love Interest!?…

Whether you like it or not Valentine’s Day generally strikes a cord of some kind, maybe below the belt or deep in your big old heart.

as a Valentines treat we are offering, 50% off Cashmere when you buy a piece of Jewellery.

For Better or Worse..

“When he saw her, he was struck by the arrows of love. Nor could he save himself by shutting his eyes: For he was a young man of an enquiring and philosophical turn of mind. And so he was forced to examine the problem in greater detail of how the creator had come to make a figure like hers.”

Poems from Sankskrit

We thought that we would highlight some love stories and match them with some of our precious jewellery.brad and angelinaBrad Pitt & Angelina Jolie

Khaki in Fashion

Impressed by the wild beauty and peace at the riverside on our recent trip to Scotland… I have to add also much hilarity!! We thought we would share a couple of pictures of the trip.

The fishing party!

Plus a khaki inspired fashion comment and a picture that should enlighten us all to the enthrallingly exceptional beauty derived from nature. Isn’t he one of the most beautiful little people that you have ever seen?

Khaki is a great colour choice because of its versatility and obvious benefits when blending with nature. It is also so easy to work into your wardrobe. Khaki is such a neutral colour and looks great in so many styles and you can always find a piece to fit your own personal taste. You can’t go wrong!
