Travel: Drinks at Baba’s Nest Rooftop Bar at Sri Panwa, Phuket

January 26, 2015 My Travels

Now we are back from our Thailand trip it seems like we created so many memories that it’s hard to even know where to start when thinking about it all. We did so many things, at so many levels, from luxe-ing it up in our own infinity pool to learning how to cook pad Thai […]

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 & […]

Travel Review: The Casa Blanca Boutique Hotel, Phuket Old Town Thailand

January 9, 2015 Hotels

It was quite a last minute decision to spend a night in Phuket Old Town after we left Paresa Resort. Rachel had brought the Lonely Planet Thailand Islands & Beaches guidebook with her, and I was flicking through some local magazines which all said it was worth visiting. (My photos of the architecture of the […]

Travel: Phuket Old Town, Thailand

January 8, 2015 LLG Food

I’m skipping a few days, and will return to them, but the internet here on Koh Yao Noi is intermittently lightning fast and powered-by-a-hamster-in-a-wheel slow, so my photos won’t upload. When deciding where to spend the next week after luxe-ing it up on Phuket, we had realised that jumping on and off small boats in […]

Travel: Hanging out at Sri Panwa, Phuket with Rachel

January 7, 2015 LLG Food

(The highly acceptable breakfast at Sri Panwa.) I’d be lying if I said we did much at Sri Panwa, beyond lolling in the pool villa. When your hotel room house is so heavenly it does rather reduce the desire to do anything AT ALL.

Hanging out at The Racha, off Phuket, Thailand

January 2, 2015 LLG Plays & Stays

So my last update was on Christmas Eve morning, as we sat on Chalong Pier, awaiting the speedboat that would whisk us to Koh Racha for three nights, where we would be staying at The Racha, a rather glorious beachside island resort. (The Anumba Spa at The Racha.) Our activities on Racha can be neatly […]

Travel: Review. The Racha resort hotel, off Phuket, Thailand

December 30, 2014 LLG Plays & Stays

oh what a blissful three days we had at The Racha, a resort hotel on a tiny island twelve nautical miles off the southernmost point of Phuket. We arrived after nearly thirty hours of travel from London on Christmas Eve, hot, a little bit sweaty, and very, very happy to be in one place.

Summer Holiday Shopping in the middle of the English Winter

December 28, 2014 LLG Fashion

(My Boden Tie Front swimsuit, photographed today at our pool villa at Sri Panwa on Phuket.) No one wants to spend a fortune on new clothes for a sunny holiday, but it’s amazing how ropey last summer’s swimsuits, kaftans and sundresses can look when you pull them out of storage. A couple of week’s worth […]

November 17, 2014 My Travels

Oh frabjous day! I have just booked a proper holiday over both Christmas and New Year. I CANNOT WAIT. I have longed for a trip to Thailand over the Christmas holidays for a Very Long Time, but events have always conspired against me. We will be flying direct to Hong Kong on Virgin Atlantic, then […]

Paris in Autumn: From the Palais Royal to Place Saint Michel

November 10, 2014 My Travels

Paris in the springtime might be the romantic ideal, but last Friday made a good case for Paris in Autumn. I was in the city for a lunch with Ines de la Fressange, who was launching her third collection for Uniqlo and afterwards I walked from the studio, just north of the Palais Royal, twenty-five […]
