London: A Week in LLG, from Primrose Hill to Columbia Road to Fairground and Busaba Eathai

April 16, 2014 LLG Fashion

(For style notes, see end of post) So last week was a bit of a bugger on the getting things done front, hence lack of blogging. Juggling of multiple balls has never been my strong point, (I tend to run around in circles, not knowing where to start, and consequently getting nothing done) and, when [...]

London: The Olivier Awards 2014 with MasterCard UK

April 15, 2014 My Life in England

However many times one gets to trot up a red carpet, the experience never, ever pales. The sense of anticipation, the sheer enjoyment of the situation, the grade A people watching and rubber necking, the frocks, the hysteria… Goodness the hysteria: Nothing, nothing prepares you for the high decibel shrieking that happens along the red [...]

Blast from the Past…

April 6, 2014 My Life in England

A few months back I spent about four hours in my mother’s attic, searching though an enormous 1930s leather suitcase, which had been co-opted as the family photo archive. I needed some pics for an upcoming project, but I turned up some gems from my past, which I thought I’d put up on here. At [...]

A Week in LLG: London to Paris

April 4, 2014 LLG Fashion

Bonjour from Paris! I’ve made a lightning trip over here for an event with Van Cleef & Arpels in Place Vendome last night. (I’m writing this at 0735 in the breakfast salon of the Hotel Mansart, propping my eyes open with matchsticks.)

Mothering Sunday 2014

March 31, 2014 My Life in England

As I am actually in England at the moment, I was able to spend Mothering Sunday with my mother, for a change. I flew up to Gloucestershire on Sunday morning, roof down, Posetta Baddog co-piloting, to meet her, my sister and Billy the Whippet for lunch at The Fox at Oddington, a dog-friendly pub restaurant [...]

A Week in London: From AW14 to I Can’t Sing to The Boat Race…

March 30, 2014 My Life in England

(SUNO AW14) Last week was a mixed bag. I have never, ever had jet lag that bad before. Sure, I’ve dropped off into a cat nap mid-afternoon in Los Angeles, or woken up every morning for a week at 6am in New York, but waking up every day for a week at 3am, and then [...]

Food: Parkway Greens Greengrocers Opens in Camden, London

February 20, 2014 My Life in England

Imagine my glee when I realised that the building works that have been taking place for the last four and a half months, not far from my front door in the old Parkway tanning salon, were on behalf of a greengrocers. Yes, that’s right, a proper, old fashion greengrocers, with brown paper bags and everything.

One Weekend in February: Columbia Road Flower Market

February 14, 2014 My Life in England

  I’ll be at London Fashion Week shows on Sunday, and then off to the BAFTAS, but if you are in London, then I highly recommend heading down to Columbia Road in E2. The spring flowers are in with a vengeance, and there are even clouds of fluffy mimosa. I headed over last Sunday to [...]

A Weekend in London: From the V&A to Poached Eggs on Toast…

February 10, 2014 My Life in England

(Market, Camden) oh goodness this post has been drafted to go for two weeks, but it’s just been overwhelming at LLG Towers. I had a mahoosive work deadline for the 31st, tax accounts to file, VAT to wrestle with (erk), a large photo project to complete, mice to combat, a broken oven, a story commission, [...]

London: From The Connaught to IKEA…(with some mice thrown in)

January 21, 2014 My Life in England

I am surprised that anyone who comes near me at the moment isn’t keeling over at the smell of bleach which emanates from my person, and everything that I touch: I’ve spent the last forty-eight hours on my hands and knees, scouring everything in the kitchen, after the sighting of a mouse scurrying away behind [...]
