London: My Mama’s Christmas Treat!

December 18, 2014 LLG Fashion

I have come to the conclusion this year that, whilst things are always nice to receive, experiences are so much better. So I decided to plan Christmas treats for each of my parents: in exactly the same way as the treats we were taken on as children, but involving a lot more alcohol. Oh, and […]

Christmas Gift Guide: Kitchen Gadgets & Equipment Part Two.

December 18, 2014 LLG Fashion

A bumper post this morning: I’m talking about the Kenwood Chef Mixer, Instant Pot (the new wave of pressure cookers), Green Pans (eco-friendly non-stick pans and bakeware), and my beloved Magimix Nespresso Coffee Machine. I was given the Kenwood Chef Mixer as a review model about eighteen months ago by Kenwood, who knew I was a fervent fan of […]

Weekend Post: Hornsey Town Hall & Regent’s Park (again)

December 15, 2014 LLG Fashion

There’s so much to do work-wise before I leave for Thailand that I’m afraid I rather abdicated this weekend, eschewing festive parties and the suchlike in favour of family, friends and dogs. On Saturday I extracted my sister, after quite some effort, from her flat to drive up to Crouch End for the North London […]

Christmas Gift Guide: Beauty Kits

December 15, 2014 LLG Fashion

Before I worked in the industry I always asked for beauty products at Christmas, in my stocking and under the tree. It was a good opportunity to stock up for the coming year and to maybe upgrade my drugstore buys to something a little more luxe. One of the things I think are nice to receive are […]

Last weekend: Santas, sausage & onion rings

December 14, 2014 LLG Fashion

Well, that was a surprise! Although I live in the heart of Camden, my street is a a few blocks removed from tourist central, so there is very little noise pollution. Last Saturday I could hear all sorts of hustle and bustle=y noises floating up from the road. It was clearly not normal, so I ran […]

Christmas Tech Gift Guide: The Aether Cone Wireless Music Player & BeoPlay H6 Headphones

December 13, 2014 LLG Fashion

I do love a new tech toy/gadget/life organiser (delete as applicable). I’m always convinced that the new object of desire will change my life or, at the very least, enhance it enormously. In the case of these two objects we are looking at life enhancement: they are simply beautiful things that do their job extremely […]

Home: The Grey Towel Revolution…

December 12, 2014 LLG Fashion

(Yes, this is my bathroom.) Please tell me I am not the only one who manages, however throughly I clean my face morning and night, to still get smears of lipstick, or traces of panda makeup on my formerly pristine white towels? And let’s not even start with fake tan marks.

Pre-holiday purging…

December 12, 2014 LLG Fashion

(My freakishly tidy – for me – desk.) It’s odd planning to be away for three weeks over the Christmas and New Year holidays: it’ll be the longest I’ve spent away from base since I moved back to England from America nearly three years ago. Long-term readers will recall that in 2009 and 2010 I didn’t […]

Shooting for Boden at Grace & Thorn in London

December 11, 2014 LLG Fashion

My final post for The Great Boden Diaries is now up. We wanted a story that highlighted a great British business, as well as Boden’s lovely festive partywear. As British blooms are at the heart of Boden’s upcoming spring/summer 2015 collection, I decided we shoot in one of my favourite new London shops: Grace and […]

Style: Faux Fur Jackets for Arctic Temperatures

December 10, 2014 LLG Fashion

It is really *quite* cold outside. I, on the other hand, am snug as the proverbial bug, thanks to layering up Uniqlo’s marvellous Heat Tech camis or long sleeve undertops (on sale now), and then shoving a fake fur jacket over all. My current favourite is this vintage Dries Van Noten one (above) that I […]
