Grammy-winning singer Adele hasn't been going out in public much lately, but on Monday she and her baby bump made a rare appearance on the streets of London beside her boyfriend, former investment banker Simon Konecki. She wore a body-hugging gray dress, a long blue sweater and flats as photographers snapped shots of her and Konecki leaving the hospital and getting into a car. According to the New York Daily News, the pair appeared quite happy, with Konecki being extra solicitous in his actions towards his pregnant girlfriend.

For years, my husband and I had wanted to take our children to London before the magic of "Peter Pan" and "Mary Poppins" wore off, before the older two became too jaded for the Changing of the Guard and double-decker buses, before they would rather hang out with their friends than go anywhere with their family. But the pound, at $2 a pop, was just too strong. Then last year the pound fell, our frequent-flier miles covered three of our five tickets, and we could proudly announce to our kids that we were going to London for Christmas.

True Religion Apparel Inc., the Southern California purveyor of pricey designer denim, may have gotten too small for its britches. More than half a year after putting itself up for sale amid growth struggles and fluctuating stock, the high-end-jeans seller said its board unanimously accepted an $835-million takeover offer from investment firm TowerBrook Capital Partners. The $32-a-share deal for the Vernon label represents an 8.7% premium on Thursday's $29.44-a-share closing price and a 52% increase from the stock price Oct. 9, the day before True Religion said it would explore strategic alternatives.

Let the games begin. Oh, you thought we meant the Olympic Games ? No, we meant the travel games - the ones we sometimes discover we're not as good at as we thought we were. Usually we don't discover that until we're strangers in a strange land - at least, I don't. Visitors to London , whether they're there for the Olympics or they're going after the crowds die down, may not experience the kind of culture shock as when they travel to, say, a country where English isn't the first language and the customs are totally different.

If you thought flying business class to London was way out of reach, take a look at this summer sale from British Airways. It lets you fly round trip between Los Angeles and the British capital in the Club World business cabin starting at about $3,000, including taxes and fees. With Club World , you sleep onboard in seats-turned-beds. On the ground, you get access to airport lounges with free snacks, drinks, WiFi and more. Plus other goodies. While still not cheap, the upgrade to business could be worth it if you value the perks, considering that even coach-class transatlantic tickets can set you back about $2,000 on some summer dates.
