London: Visiting the ArcelorMittal Orbit in Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park

September 13, 2014 LLG Fashion

If I was working on an enjoyment + unexpected pleasure measure, then our trip up the The ArcelorMittal Orbit in Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park two weeks back was one of the best things I did all summer.

Philosykos Eau de Parfum by Diptyque, & a Fig, Feta & Honey Salad

September 12, 2014 LLG Beauty

It’s most definitely autumn outside. Although it’s just warm enough to wear shorts in the afternoon, and I automatically still  pick up my sunglasses when I leave the house, there is that underlying nip in the air that says that summer is over.

Five things I have noted this week…

September 10, 2014 LLG Fashion

The 100 Years of Maserati Garden Party at Wormsley, Buckinghamshire

September 10, 2014 LLG Plays & Stays

It’s no secret that I like driving. A lot. I drive a sports car as my regular London wheels, and I grew up with  a confirmed petrol head as a father, who takes me on track days, and whose mantra is ‘can you go a bit faster?’ So when HR Owen asked me if I would [...]

Recipe: A Mexican Pizza (sort of). By way of Highbury and Camden.

September 8, 2014 LLG Food

Given how much time I spend in the kitchen, there is little that I like more than eating out in someone else’s house. And when that house is the home of my dear friend Miss P, I am practically kicking up my heels with anticipatory glee. She is a phenomenally good cook, the best that [...]

Travel: The No 1 Lounge at Gatwick South Terminal

September 8, 2014 LLG Fashion

You may remember that back in June I took the world’s shortest press trip: a planned 36 hours in Menorca to visit the HQ of one of my favourite shoe brands ended up as a day hanging out at Gatwick’s South Terminal, thanks to French air traffic control strikes, before we turned around and came [...]
