July 7, 2014 My Life in England

It’s hard to believe that it is only a month until this year’s Wilderness Festival, when the memories of last year’s seem so fresh (links to all my stories are at the bottom of this post). I think it’s fair to say that Rachel and I explored every corner of Wilderness 2013. We arrived on [...]

July 7, 2014 LLG Beauty

It’s no big secret that I am naturally the colour of skimmed milk – white with a hint of blue. In the winter I am content to give snow blindness to anyone glancing at my bare legs, but in summer I prefer a more bronzed glow. If I can be arsed. Which is why I [...]

July 2, 2014 LLG Fashion

I know I don’t normally run fashion news, but I’m interested in how Vivienne Westwood has redesigned Virgin Atlantic’s iconic cabin crew uniforms for their 30th anniversary uniform rebrand.
