June 23, 2015 LLG Plays & Stays

After the wonderful day I had at Royal Ascot with Brig on the Wednesday, my second day at Royal Ascot, as a guest of official timekeepers Longines in their finishing post box, saw me taking the train from Waterloo with the other hundreds of racegoers. I was again dressed by Suzannah, this time in her […]

Cars: Test Driving with Aston Martin at Millbrook Proving Ground, Bedfordshire

June 21, 2015 Cars

If I had to come up with a candidate for Best Day Out, then being invited by Aston Martin to drive their cars, including the Vanquish, around Millbrook, the British automotive industry’s proving ground in Bedfordshire would have to be in the top ten.

I arrived in London on the red eye from New York at 0630hrs on Wednesday morning, and by 1035 I was sitting in a train carriage at Waterloo with Brig, who I took as my guest, en route to day two of the annual Royal Ascot race meeting. First port of call, as always, was […]

Innocent Unplugged

June 15, 2015 LLG Plays & Stays

Lettice, Rachel and I had the most wonderful time at the Innocent Unplugged Festival in Kent a few weeks back. Held in the middle of a huge wood, surrounded by bluebells, and hemmed in by rhododendrons, the idea of the festival was to switch off for the weekend. No wifi, no 3G, no traditional electricity. Any power […]

Opening Day at the Cheltenham Festival 2015

March 16, 2015 LLG Plays & Stays

This is Jo. We’ve been best friends for over twenty-five years. We went to the same school and the same university. She’s the person I bought books with at Shakespeare & Co. in Paris after our A-Levels, for whom I cooked an Indian meal for thirty for her 21st, who shared my love of The Wonderstuff, […]

Visiting Crufts 2015…

March 13, 2015 Dogs

(My sister with two Standard Wire Haired Dachshunds and Lettice’s nose peeking out from her lap.) Unless we are counting the village fete, and the Dog with the Waggiest Tail competition, I had never attended a dog show until last weekend. It’s a world I knew next to nothing about but I love dogs, my sister […]

A Week in LLG from The BRITS to SHOWstudio

March 2, 2015 LLG Plays & Stays

As London Fashion Week rolled to a close on Tuesday, I started to think of early nights and the possibility of a little light napping. That is, of course, before I had checked my diary, which Remy had been so diligently filling up for me.

February 27, 2015 LLG Plays & Stays
