Travel: Malaysia Airlines Business Class from London to KL, & the Golden Lounge

April 15, 2015 My Travels

Space on an aeroplane? Well, that’s the traveller’s Holy Grail, isn’t it? And I am pleased to report that when I flew Business Class on Malaysia Airlines to Kuala Lumpur and back last year, there was so much space that an entire family of cats could have been swung around the cabin and come to […]

April 14, 2015 My Travels

(The bags I travelled with around Thailand during the Christmas holidays) When Rachel and I started planning our trip to Thailand and to Hong Kong over Christmas and the New Year, we immediately realised that we would have an issue with our luggage.

Style: The Topshop Navy Loose Trench Duster Coat

April 10, 2015 LLG Fashion

The day before London Fashion Week in February I popped into Topshop to pick up some pieces to round out my wardrobe for the new season. I’m terrible at putting together my outfits in advance and, without fail, each season sees me running around the West End the day before LFW throwing clothes in baskets, […]

Food I love to loathe…

April 7, 2015 LLG Fashion

Having marked March and April as my months for kickstarting my health and fitness regime, I’m pretty pleased with how things are going so far. Thanks to my week at Viva Mayr (of which more later), I am down 8lbs already, and next week I’m heading to my first ever bootcamp, in the New Forest.

What’s In My Handbag: Everyday essentials from lip balm to sunglasses

April 4, 2015 Accessories

On my hall table there is a lovely old wooden box in which I keep handbag-sized things so that each time I change my bag (which is at least every two days, and usually more as I have a breakfast meeting, a dog walk and a smart evening do most days, all of which require a different bag) […]

Easter Sunday Lunch: Roast Leg of Lamb and all the fixings & Quinoa Cauliflower Cakes

April 4, 2015 LLG Food

My cookbook Friends, Food, Family has an entire Weekend Entertaining section because it’s one of my favourite ways to bring people together. My suggestions for Easter lunch are all taken from recipes in the book, with one twist. That being said, these are all fairly simple ideas, even if you don’t have a copy – perish […]

Style: Air & Grace’s Coachella Tan Leather Ankle Boots

April 3, 2015 LLG Fashion

For years and years I’ve suffered from horribly achy legs when I’ve been walking about for more than an hour or so. My feet hurt, and the pain radiates up and down from hip to toes, making the bath my best friend at the end of the day. It doesn’t matter whether I am in […]

Designing an Easter Tabletop at Home: Eggs, chicks, bunnies and more!

April 2, 2015 LLG Home

It really does feel as though spring is just around the corner: I’ve filled my home with narcissi from the Scilly Isles, the clocks have gone forward and the days are light, and sometimes sunny. Easter falls early this year, and decorating my house for the festival is all part of my spring celebrations. When Holly and […]

March 31, 2015 LLG Fashion

(My legs in DL Jeans, Valentino Rockstud heels & Falke Cotton Touch Socks) I love Fenwick of Bond Street. It is a small but perfectly formed department store, stocking a wonderful and considered edit of fashion, beauty, millinery and accessories. I worked just around the corner at Vogue House for five or so years in my twenties, […]
