30.09.2015- On the Menu: La Farola, Upper Street

Whilst I'm sure I'm not the only one who is delighted that the sun is making (somewhat uncharacteristically!) regular appearances at the moment, my inner pessimist still can't help but dread the prospect of the weather turning in the space of a second and being faced with living in the…

28.09.2015- Beauty Buys: Kiehl's Creme de Corps

If I'm being completely honest, I don't really tend to believe the hype as far as cult beauty products are concerned. As a self confessed creature of habit, it takes a lot to get me to switch up my spending, particularly as I've not got unlimited pennies to splash out on the latest mus…

25.09.2015- What I Wore Today #232

Although it's a well documented fact that I'm by no means the biggest fan of the colder weather, the arrival of autumn does present the perfect opportunity to pep up a wardrobe with some new statement purchases, and somehow it always feels refreshing as a selection of new shades, prints an…

23.09.2015- Beauty Buys: In the Pink

With the prospect of winter looming large, I'm sure I'm not the only one already looking for ways to hang on to some summertime energy. Whether it be having a rummage through my wardrobe to dig out some brightly coloured basics which I can make the most of during the chillier weather, begi…

21.09.2015- On the Menu: Nordic Bakery

If you're a regular visitor to these pages, then you'll no doubt be well aware of the fact that I'm a firm devotee of all things concerning cake. Whether it's tuning in to The Great British Bake Off week after week, sharing my own kitchen adventures with you, or seeking out new plac…

18.09.2015- What I Wore Today #231

For me, there are few things which induce a complete retreat into relaxation quite like going for a nice long walk. I'm so lucky that I live only a hop, skip and a jump away from a nature reserve and fields which go on for ages, and always find myself so grateful for the peace, quiet and fresh…

16.09.2015- A Royal Welcome at Buckingham Palace

A few weeks ago, I was lucky enough to be invited along to Buckingham Palace for a very special, curator-led tour of the special exhibition which is occupying the State Rooms this summer. A Royal Welcome focuses on the preparations and planning for the various visits which take place at the palace…

14.09.2015- Fashion Week Favourites

With London Fashion Week kicking off at the end of this week, I'm sure I'm not the only one looking forward to seeing what next season has in store in the style stakes, and, as ever, I'm eagerly anticipating the presentations of some of my favourites- especially as London always tends …

11.09.2015- Denim Dreams

There are few fashion items which have become more ubiquitous or which have served to cement their enduring appeal in the same way that denim has. Whether it's the humble pair of jeans, or those cut offs which you pack in your suitcase year after year, it's fair to say that denim is an ever…

09.09.2015- What I Wore Today #230

Although there's a part of me which is itching to snap up lots of new autumn pieces (much like the 60s inspired ones which I featured last week), I'm still desperately clinging on to the last weeks of summer- particularly as the downpours which punctuated August seem to have robbed us of a…

07.09.2015- On the Menu: The Black Penny

As I've mentioned once or twice before, day to day my choice of lunch spot doesn't tend to vary all that much, which is why it's always lovely to have an excuse to try somewhere different and explore some alternative eating. A few weeks ago, I caught up with Lily one lunchtime, and we b…

06.09.2015- My Month in Pictures: August

It feels like barely five minutes have flashed by since I last pressed 'publish' one of these posts, and as I sit here looking out of the window at what can only be described as a downpour of Biblical proportions, I can't help but wonder where on earth summer has disappeared to. The la…

04.09.2015- Style Spotlight: 60s Chic

Although the 1970s are definitely having something of a style resurgence, 60s chic is also making areal impression on the trend radar- and I'm delighted to see some of my favourite vintage inspired shapes making a comeback to the shops. Now that the new season is well and truly underway, there…

02.09.2015- Adventures in Baking: Lemon Drizzle Cake

It feels like an absolute eternity since I last shared a baking post with you, but with the return of Bake Off to our television screens, I've been well and truly inspired to get back into the kitchen and try out some new recipes. One bake which has been on my 'to try' list for an abso…
