March 26, 2015 LLG Plays & Stays

(The view from the restaurant at Viva Mayr) 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.

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

  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 […]

Presented as a return to the origins of Cirque du […]
