My Life in England

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 […]

Returning to London…

January 23, 2015 My Life in England

It’s now just over a week since I arrived back in London from Hong Kong. We arrived very early on Wednesday morning, aghast at the sharp wind and zero temperatures as we exited into the bathetic surrounding of Heathrow’s concrete car park.

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 & […]

A rather delayed kind-of Christmas Post…

January 6, 2015 LLG Plays & Stays

It does feel strange, not having a country Christmas post on the blog, for the first time in eight years. So, when I was going back through my photographs from December this morning I thought instead that I would talk about the lovely Christmas-y things that I did in the week before Christmas instead.

A Week (or two) In LLG: The VERY Festive Edition

December 10, 2014 LLG Fashion

I am starting to feel EXTREMELY Christmas-y. I don’t normally throw myself into the festive season with *quite* such alacrity, but as I am spending Christmas in Asia this year, I am trying to pack in as much sparkly activity as is humanly possible before I leave on the 22nd.

Sasha’s Birthday Party

December 9, 2014 My Life in England

I think it is fair to say that, whilst I love helping others to celebrate their birthdays, of late I have been very curmudgeonly where my own is concerned. It’s hard to believe that I am the same girl who did this (it involved dancing, poles, boys, snow and a lot of fun) on her birthday in Manhattan […]

London: Walking the dogs in Primrose Hill & Regent’s Park

December 6, 2014 LLG Fashion

Apologies for the lack of posting: we had a backend issue on the blog, and I got locked out of the blog for a few days. Anyway, we are all up and running again. I’ve got a LOT of posts that have been waiting to go up, and first up are a few photographs I […]

London: Bicycling the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park in Stratford

September 3, 2014 Bicycling & sport

(Our reflection in one of the large signs outside the Copper Box Arena in the Park.) Last Saturday Hannah, Rach and I spent the day biking around the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, which opened fully to the pubic in the spring. It still feels like one of London’s hidden secrets: it’s one of the best […]

London: Rowing on The Serpentine & Brunch at The Serpentine Bar & Kitchen in London’s Hyde Park

August 20, 2014 LLG Fashion

(The view across the Serpentine, from The Serpentine Bar and Kitchen in London’s Hyde Park) As a north Londoner, it’s easy to overlook  the myriad attractions of Hyde Park for the more bucolic delights of Hampstead Heath, or the local pleasures of The Regent’s Park, where I walk the dog, and occasionally train. For, after all, if I […]

The XXth Commonwealth Games Athletics Final & Closing Ceremony, Glasgow with Longines

August 19, 2014 My Life in England

Glasgow, it transpires, can be wet. Very, very wet indeed. I had been invited up to Scotland for the final weekend of the 20th Commonwealth Games by my friends at Longines, the official timekeepers of the Games,  taking the sleeper train up overnight from London Euston on the Friday night. London was bordering on heatwave […]
