This may well be my favourite Boden Diaries story so far. My father and I and Lettice spent the day zooming around the glorious Goodwood Estate in his vintage Jaguar ZK120, before hunkering down for the evening with my sister, Remy and Posetta Baddog in the Goodwood Hotel. I love Goodwood: my father and I have driven on the historic motor circuit there plenty of times, most recently in the MGA (story here), and it was great to be able to return with him for this story.
The whole story is over here on the Boden site.
Meanwhile, here on LLG, I have some of the behind the scenes photographs and outs from the story that Remy and I shot on the day. We are wearing Boden in all the photos and, at the bottom of this post is a clickable carousel featuring all the pieces.

I’ve been baking the, frankly epic, chocolate brownies from Friends, Food, Family all afternoon to put in the gift bags for a very lovely dinner that I am hosting tonight at the Dodo store in Sloane Square. (These are bite-size, as they are going in the American cardboard Chinese food pails that I like to use for food presents.)
You may remember that I threw a dinner party here at my apartment in London for a few of my friends on behalf of Dodo almost this time last year, and I was thrilled when Dodo said they would like to celebrate the launch of my cookbook with a dinner actually in their Sloane Square store.
We’ll be eating recipes from the book, catered by the wonderful people at Cellar Society, with my friends at Scarlet & Violet doing the flowers. It promises to be a wonderful evening and, of course, we’ll be reporting back here afterwards!
You can read more about Dodo and their beautiful charms here.
So you know that golden rule that says NO CELLPHONE USE AT THE TABLE? Well, I’ve found the exception: a VIP dinner hosted by a very chic luxury phone company. Then you are practically encouraged to whip out your devices onto the tablecloth.

I couldn’t be happier about this! I shot quite a lot of the book using Le Creuset bake and cookware, so it makes perfect sense to team up with the LC UK team for my first mini book tour.
Entrance will be free and there will be Prosecco and book signings! It would be amazing to meet those of you who aren’t in London too. I’ve never been to Northern Ireland, so that’s particularly exciting – especially as my cousin and his family live just outside Belfast, and are coming to the event *happy dance*.
