London: Rowing on The Serpentine & Brunch at The Serpentine Bar & Kitchen in London’s Hyde Park

August 20, 2014 LLG Fashion

(The view across the Serpentine, from The Serpentine Bar and Kitchen in London’s Hyde Park) As a north Londoner, it’s easy to overlook  the myriad attractions of Hyde Park for the more bucolic delights of Hampstead Heath, or the local pleasures of The Regent’s Park, where I walk the dog, and occasionally train. For, after all, if I [...]

May 17, 2014 LLG Food

(Pea shoots, burrata, roasted cherry tomatoes, asparagus, artichokes at Bibendum) I know that as one gets older that time is supposed to speed up, but it really does feel like the weeks go by on roller skates at the moment. I just looked at my diary to see what I had done this week and [...]

Hotel: The Greyhound on the Test, Stockbridge, Hampshire, UK

March 27, 2014 LLG Plays & Stays

The lovely thing about living in London is how easy it is to escape from: in under an hour you can be in the countryside, and by ninety minutes you are far from the madding crowds. I had a long-standing invitation from The Greyhound on the Test in Hampshire, a 600year old pub, which promises [...]

March 23, 2014 LLG Fashion

(Leather flip flops by Aspiga. Lancome Vernis in Love in Lovered) Oh I did pack badly for my six night stay at The Farm at San Benito in the Philippines. Never knowingly under-provisioned, I took full advantage of Malaysia Airlines’ stonkingly generous 30kg allowance for Economy. *  Tumi Vapor International Carry On. M&S  Scorpius Large Rollercase – [...]

March 23, 2014 LLG Plays & Stays

On Friday afternoon I very sadly said goodbye to The Farm at San Benito, and headed off on the 1hr30 transfer to Manila Airport. Sadly I didn’t have time to explore the city – above on the freeway is the nearest I got. The drive through the countryside was interesting to me – this has [...]

Travels: Dispatch from The Farm at San Benito

March 19, 2014 LLG Plays & Stays

I’m just over half way through my stay at The Farm holistic retreat, and already I feel calmer, happier – and a little more streamlined. I’ve shed a few kilos and am looking forward to a healthier approach to my lifestyle on my return to England next week. Sadly I haven’t managed to hit the [...]
