Travel: Visiting Carré Cointreau, Angers, France

February 27, 2015 LLG Plays & Stays

  There has always been one of the distinctive square bottles of Cointreau in the drinks cabinet at home, slightly sticky around the neck, and used not only as a liqueur but in the kitchen in my mother’s delicious creations.

Review: The May Fair Hotel for London Fashion Week

February 26, 2015 Hotels

I’m slowly coming back down to earth after London Fashion Week. The laundry is sorted, the overnight bags wiped and put away, the invitations and show releases recycled or filed, piles of shoes are shoe-treed and back on their shelves and I’ve re-stocked the fridge.

London: Queen Mary’s Gardens, Regent’s Park

February 26, 2015 LLG Plays & Stays

I’ve been feeling a little bereft this past week. No Tiny Dog turning somersaults down the hallway when I come home, no Tiny Dog hot water bottle action on my tum at night, no Tiny Dog sitting on her kitchen bed beadily watching me test recipes.

Hanging out at The May Fair Hotel for London Fashion Week

February 24, 2015 LLG Fashion

(I wore my pink Raf Simons x Adidas sneakers every day of LFW. Am now too addicted to comfort.) I think it’s fair to say that packing light, when I am travelling by car, is a skill that has always eluded me.  I was en route to stay at The May Fair Hotel, official hotel […]

A Week in LLG: Running around London…

February 18, 2015 Digest

For London editors the first half of February always feels as though a month’s worth of events has been squeezed into a week or so. No one wants to clash with fashion week (month), and guests don’t particularly want to leave the house in January. The moment the 1st of Feb rolls around it’s perfectly possible to be […]

Behind the Scenes with Cirque du Soleil’s Kooza (at The Royal Albert Hall)

February 17, 2015 LLG Plays & Stays

One of the most fascinating – and exciting – things I’ve done recently was seeing behind the scenes of Cirque de Soleil’s newest production, KOOZA which is at the Royal Albert Hall at present, and soon to be presented in Bern, Switzerland from February 28th. Presented as a return to the origins of Cirque du […]

A Day Out with Chivas Regal 18 & Pininfarina

January 28, 2015 LLG Plays & Stays

I cannot pretend that being picked up in a Ferrari at my London flat at 0630hrs, being helicoptered to Farnborough to board a private jet to Aberdeen, to take a private tour and lunch at the Chivas Regal distillery, before reversing the journey back home, with a Ferrari lift from Battersea Heliport to The Connaught, before dinner […]

Travel: The Mappin Festive Express on the Belmont Pullman

January 10, 2015 LLG Plays & Stays

I am renowned amongst my friends for being a birthday avoider: I always used to throw a party, but the novelty rather wore off as the number each year increased and now I prefer to take the sticking-my-head-in-the-sand route. So when I was asked to spend the day on the Orient Express by Mappin & […]

Travel Review: The Casa Blanca Boutique Hotel, Phuket Old Town Thailand

January 9, 2015 Hotels

It was quite a last minute decision to spend a night in Phuket Old Town after we left Paresa Resort. Rachel had brought the Lonely Planet Thailand Islands & Beaches guidebook with her, and I was flicking through some local magazines which all said it was worth visiting. (My photos of the architecture of the […]

Travel: Hanging out at Sri Panwa, Phuket with Rachel

January 7, 2015 LLG Food

(The highly acceptable breakfast at Sri Panwa.) I’d be lying if I said we did much at Sri Panwa, beyond lolling in the pool villa. When your hotel room house is so heavenly it does rather reduce the desire to do anything AT ALL.
