Buying Flowers at New Covent Garden Flower Market at Nine Elms

March 15, 2015 Flowers

I’ve been going to New Covent Garden for years to buy flowers wholesale: my mother used to arrange flowers for weddings, and she would often drive down from Northamptonshire the night before to stay with me, so that I could give her a hand at 5am at the market. We’d buy a carload of flowers, […]

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 […]

London Fashion Week AW15: Part Two

March 4, 2015 LLG Fashion

So that’s one day’s post, about a fifth, maybe less, of the post we get at LLG HQ for London Fashion Week. When you consider that on the Sunday there were twenty-one shows and presentations on the official schedule, starting at 0900hrs in King’s Cross and finishing around 2100hrs at Tate Britain in Pimlico, not to […]

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.

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.

Appearing on Hoxton Radio on Sam & Helen’s Ladies What Brunch show (with Lettice)

February 21, 2015 Dogs

I had ALL the fun with comedians Sam and Helen on their Saturday morning radio show, Ladies What Brunch on Hoxton Radio. It was the business. I wasn’t sure if they’d be scary or not, so I took arrived with reinforcements: Lettice under one arm, and a plate of just-out-of-the-oven chocolate chunk cookies from Friends, […]

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 […]

An evening en famille in Paris

February 2, 2015 My Life in England

Goodness, a new baby is such a joy. I was in Thailand when M gave birth to her third, Molly, so she was just over a month old when I finally got to hold and sniff her last Tuesday night in Paris. (Don’t new babies smell divine?)

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 […]
