(Ralph Lauren Black Label Leather Trim Merril party dress for my cookbook launch party.)

There is a lot of travelling in my near future. On Wednesday I’m off to Seoul as a guest of Omega to attend what promises to be an extraordinary gala dinner hosted by Nicole Kidman on Thursday night. (I’ll be back on Saturday.) Next up is another whistlestop trip, this time to Shanghai with Vertu and the British Fashion Council, to check out Shanghai Fashion Week.

And then, at the end of the month, I’ll be back in the USA. In between I am doing book things, including cookery demonstrations of recipes from Friends, Food, Family at Le Creuset stores in Belfast, Leeds and Muswell Hill (more details of these coming shortly.) So not busy at all.

great boden diaries

I’m excited to let you all know that I am embarking upon a fantastic collaboration with my long term friends over at Boden: I’ll be appearing on their  Great Boden Diaries project, a new digital platform, which will host content written by Boden’s in-house editor, interviews with creatives (Lovely Lauren Laverne is first up) and content from me and other digital faces.

I’ll be creating stories and photographs about my life in England. There will be travel, based around my favourite destinations, food and entertaining – to tie in with the launch of Friends, Food, Family, several of my adorable godchildren in Boden bouncing around my bit of London, stories about people, design and more. I can’t wait!

I extremely pleased that the latest inspirational woman to take us through a day in her life is the brilliant Fanny Moizant, Co-Founder and Head of UK for Vestiaire Collective, the chic consignment store, that is full of things I want in my wardrobe. (I’ve just succumbed to the most amazing Dries faux fur jacket.)
Over to you Fanny:

A post about New York, for Jackie Dixon, with love.

September 18, 2014 LLG Fashion

(Me in the now-closed Life Cafe in Manhattan’s East Village in October 2006) One of the wonderful things about writing a blog is that you have an all-singing, all-dancing record of your life. No lines of indecipherable script in a dog-eared, hard-backed diary, but instead megabytes of easily searchable posts, complete with photographs to make [...]

London: Visiting the ArcelorMittal Orbit in Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park

September 13, 2014 LLG Fashion

If I was working on an enjoyment + unexpected pleasure measure, then our trip up the The ArcelorMittal Orbit in Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park two weeks back was one of the best things I did all summer. (The whole day was perfect – from hiring bikes to cycle the entire breadth of the park, to hanging out [...]
