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: 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 […]

The post where we head to Wilderness Festival 2014

August 9, 2014 My Life in England

I’ve left London for five days to sleep in a tent in a field, eat five meals a day, listen to lectures in a marquee, and dance with wild abandon under the stars. Yup, it’s Wilderness again: a festival for the arts in the parkland of Cornbury House in north Oxfordshire. My sister and I […]

LLG Travels: The Caledonian Sleeper train from London to Scotland – and back

August 4, 2014 My Life in England

When I posted my teaser from the Caledonian Sleeper, I was quite surprised at the interest shown: I do like a good train journey, but I wasn’t expecting quite so many of you to be fascinated by it too. Then again – a bed on a train! That’s pretty cool. I’ve just got in from a four and […]

July 23, 2014 My Life in England

The Port Eliot Festival, held in the grounds of the home of the Earl of St Germans, in Cornwall, was on hiatus last year, but returns with a bang this Thursday – Sunday. It’s quite lovely – only 5000 or so people, with flower shows, spelling bees (2012’s was hosted by Dominic West – I […]
