Travels: Taking my mama to Paris…from the Palais Royal to the Costes

April 22, 2014 My Travels

I have been promising my mama a trip to Paris since the last time we hung out together in the city of lights in, erm, 2008. That’s quite a long wait. Back then it was easy: I would come to Europe from New York for the Milan and Paris shows and, in the weekend between [...]

Hotel: The Greyhound on the Test, Stockbridge, Hampshire, UK

March 27, 2014 LLG Plays & Stays

The lovely thing about living in London is how easy it is to escape from: in under an hour you can be in the countryside, and by ninety minutes you are far from the madding crowds. I had a long-standing invitation from The Greyhound on the Test in Hampshire, a 600year old pub, which promises [...]

Travel: Excellent Lightweight Luggage from Tumi, Marks & Spencer, & Plia Designs

March 26, 2014 Accessories

After years of lugging around terrible bags, bought from street vendors, and those sell-everything stores on 14th Street, I am now the very happy possessor of proper, streamlined luggage – cases that don’t ping open when thrown around by baggage handlers, or duffels that tear when or l throw them down the five floors of [...]

March 23, 2014 LLG Fashion

(Leather flip flops by Aspiga. Lancome Vernis in Love in Lovered) Oh I did pack badly for my six night stay at The Farm at San Benito in the Philippines. Never knowingly under-provisioned, I took full advantage of Malaysia Airlines’ stonkingly generous 30kg allowance for Economy. *  Tumi Vapor International Carry On. M&S  Scorpius Large Rollercase – [...]

Travels: From Manila to Kuala Lumpur

March 23, 2014 LLG Plays & Stays

On Friday afternoon I very sadly said goodbye to The Farm at San Benito, and headed off on the 1hr30 transfer to Manila Airport. Sadly I didn’t have time to explore the city – above on the freeway is the nearest I got. The drive through the countryside was interesting to me – this has [...]

Travels: My Healing Sanctuary Treatments at The Farm at San Benito

March 23, 2014 LLG Plays & Stays

I’m going to write a full round up of my time at The Farm, along with my personal results shortly, but I’ve had a few queries about the treatments I had, and I thought I would do a round up here. The Healing Sanctuary is one of the main planks of The Farm’s philosophy: what [...]

Travels: Dispatch from The Farm at San Benito

March 19, 2014 LLG Plays & Stays

I’m just over half way through my stay at The Farm holistic retreat, and already I feel calmer, happier – and a little more streamlined. I’ve shed a few kilos and am looking forward to a healthier approach to my lifestyle on my return to England next week. Sadly I haven’t managed to hit the [...]

Travels: Day Two at The Farm at San Benito

March 17, 2014 LLG Plays & Stays

It’s not every day that one comes across a peacock so perfectly positioned. (As I watched it fluff out its tail feathers underneath the canopy, I imagined the effort that would be required to make that shot happen by a photographic crew.) I came across it, as I was epxloring the grounds here at the [...]
