spa packing list

For someone who travels as much as I do, I remain a terrible packer. I am only capable of  putting together tiny amounts of hand luggage or vast over-stuffed suitcases.

The perfect capsule wardrobe eludes me still.

There was the time I smugly turned up at the airport for a two week long trip to Malaysia and Cambodia with a hand luggage-sized backpack, containing a few T shirts, shorts and one sundress.

Alice Walsh

I met the designer and entrepreneur Alice Walsh of Alice Made This when we were sat next to each other at a lunch in London and was immediately struck by both her focus and her passion for her company.

One of the things that really resonated was our conversation about making the space to be creative when you have a business to run. It’s something I worry about frequently: Writing requires headspace, and it can be hard to find that amongst the daily pressure of meetings, overflowing inboxes, pitches, family and the rest.

I was impressed by Alice’s solution and of course immediately asked her to write her Day in the Life for LLG.

Over to you Alice…

I arrived at Salzburg in Austria on Saturday afternoon, after the usual bunfight at Gatwick and delayed EasyJet flight, longing for my bed and a week of restorative cleansing at the new Viva Mayr clinic in Altausee.

London: Dog Friendly Restaurant, Pub & Place Guide

March 24, 2015 Dogs

(Lettice, observing my lunch – mushroom gnocchi – at Market, Camden.) Darling Posetta Baddog RIP was most definitely not a dog who went places. She wasn’t interested in socialising: her main focus was her family, food and tennis balls, and we hung out on Hampstead Heath and in the Regent’s Park. Not so with Princess Lettice. […]

Thomas Sabo at London Fashion Week

March 18, 2015 Jewellery & watches

With ‘jewellery editor’ as part of my job description in New York  I was in seventh heaven. I was able to spend hours in archives, talking to designers and gemologists and developing my eye. Sadly I don’t get to write about jewellery so much these days (although I was very proud of this piece I wrote for […]
