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.

The Daily Beauty: Suncream Saviours from La Roche-Posay Anthelios XL SPF

January 6, 2015 LLG Beauty

(Photographed at Sri Panwa on Phuket, Thailand.) I have that most annoying of English skin: milky white, with a delightful blue tinge, that only needs to have a sunray glint in its direction to turn the most lobster shade of scarlet. Throw in a tendency to rosacea, eczema and dehydration and it’s just really all the […]

Review: The Infinity Pool Villa at Sri Panwa, Phuket, Thailand

January 4, 2015 LLG Fashion

Walking down the steps and into the shadowed courtyard of our private pool villa at Sri Panwa gave us not hint of what to expect as we opened the door into the house – it’s certainly big enough to qualify as one.

Beachwear shopping in the winter: Part Two

January 3, 2015 LLG Fashion

(Navy Accessorize crochet swimsuit £29) I mentioned last week that I had had some issues finding beach clothes for my holiday in the middle of January, because I needed what amounted to an entire new wardrobe, having not been on an extended beach holiday for years and years. (What I did have looked distinctly ropey/was […]

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.

At Home with LibertyLondonGirl for House & Garden magazine

December 29, 2014 Friends Food Family

(My kitchen in London.) One of the most enjoyable interviews that I’ve done around the launch of my cookbook Friends, Food, Family was at my London apartment for House & Garden magazine. I cooked a brunch menu, using recipes from the book, and we all sat down to eat together afterwards. It was part of their Breakfast […]

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 […]

RECIPE: Turkey in a creamy cheese sauce au gratin from Friends, Food, Family

December 25, 2014 LLG Fashion

I may be in Thailand for Christmas this year, but that hasn’t stopped me thinking about my traditional Christmases back in England – this is only the second time ever that I have been abroad for the holidays. (The first was when my sister worked in Miami and we all went out en masse to […]
