What's Hot Recently

Rain should never stop play! Cartier Polo fun.

What about the weather? I don’t know what you’re talking about! Tis the season to put on a frock and picnic in the rain.  A little bit of water never harmed anyone. In true British style I had a fabulous picnic of champagne and pasta (I was with Italians) and a cherry tart in the pouring rain under an umbrella along with the entire car park B3 at Guards for The Cartier Queen’s Cup Polo.

My perfect rose bouquet: lots of Jo Malone over layers of Korres

If I had ten pounds for everytime a cabbie told me I smelt nice after a “what are you wearing luv?” I would be in Grasse by now with my own acres and cares of roses trying to figure out how to instapost-and-scratch-and-sniff so you could virtually be with me there too. But I don’t. Instead there are now a lot of London cabbie’s wives or girlfriends who either smell equally delectable in their partner’s eyes or are wondering why hubbie’s gone ra-ra for roses. Scent’s a personal thing.

In which my hair goes to Rome and New York too

I’m a firm believer in not only having The One but A Quickie too for when The One is not availaible. What? I’m talking about hairdressers ofcourse.  A few sunny (hard to believe I know) weeks ago I was reminded – thanks to Instagram – of DryBy a salon created by two sisters inspired by the blow dry bars and nail studios of New York. I had an event and was in need of A Quickie fix. DryBy on Mortimer Street in the heart of London is a few streets down from my office and I just decided to drop in one day for a hair spruce.  Read the rest of this entry »

Cashmere, Champagne and Cornflake Milkshakes At Boden

If you’ve never been to England and somehow maybe via the force you end up at a Boden press day then you’ll have the pleasure of indulging in those quintessentially Great British experiences all rolled into one. Think Swallows and Amazons meets Carry On meets Mary Quant and the Beatles at the seaside or the local chippie. For AW16 founder Johnnie Boden transported us to his Johnnie’s Milk Bar in the heart of Soho.  Read the rest of this entry »

My 5 ‘And-Repeat’ Beauty Buys

I came late to the make-up game in life, but in the absence of a large pair of sunglasses or an Instagram filter, everyone can do with a little clever artistry to enhance one’s natural fabulousness.  I used to simply be all about the finger tips and the lips, but hundreds of fashion shoots later, lots of new and exciting make-up trends, not to mention things I seein instagram accounts…these are the five beauty products I use daily – and buy – on repeat. Ahhh that little trip to the Harrods beauty hall, or Fenwicks not to forget duty free shops, to restock my supplies is a sacred endorphin-rush of a ritual all in itself.

Paris, the pint-sized day and a half, one night visit version

Paris. Paris. Paris and croissants. Buttery, bite-sized deliciousness. Paris. Paris. Paris. Chanel. Oh là là tweeds, pearls and well dressed girls. I found myself on the brand spanking new Eurostar one afternoon two weeks ago swooshing off to Paris slap bang during fashion week on a last minute ‘voulez-vouz’ mission. No, not an illicit rendez-vous but an exciting interview for Vogue China – a young media mogul and street style icon. I can’t tell you who until the magazine comes out. Shhh.
