30.10.2015- What I Wore Today #236

Whilst I tend to avoid letting my wardrobe be overly driven by trends, sometimes a definitive aesthetic appears on the radar which is just too tempting to resist. This season (and last, now I come to think of it), embracing a retro style has become rather de rigueur, and you can't move for 60s…

28.10.2015- Beauty Buys- Dahlia Noir, Givenchy

In my seemingly never ending quest for a perfume which bridges the gap between some of my more expensive scents and a fragrance which I can spritz away day to day, I've done a fair bit of testing- and have discovered that selecting a new favourite is something of a trial and error process. Whi…

26.10.2015- On the Menu: The Parlour, Fortnum & Mason

One of the brilliant things about living in (or just outside of!) a big city is that you're never short of things to do. Having said that, finding the time to tick everything off of your bucket list is pretty much impossible, and I've already resigned myself to the fact that no matter how …

23.10.2015- Most Wanted: Pepe Jeans AW15

Regular readers will be well aware that one of my favourite pastimes is discovering (or indeed, rediscovering) some new brands or names which I've not been too familiar with in the past. It's always a lovely to revisit some old favourites when they've got a seriously swoon-worthy drop …

21.10.2015- What I Wore Today #235

With a surfeit of 70s inspired styles hitting the shops at the moment, I'm sure I'm not the only one investing in some bold prints and patterns as a welcome antidote to darker winter hues. As someone who has always had a soft spot for retro designs (Del and Rodney's curtains in Only Fo…

19.10.2015- Adventures in Baking: Berry Drizzle Loaf Cake

If you, like me, are suffering from serious Bake Off withdrawal (it hasn't even been two weeks!), and find yourself with a strange empty feeling on Wednesday evenings (sob), I've come up with a solution and am convinced that the only logical way to fill the void is with cake. Predictable I …

16.10.2015- Beauty Buys: On My Bedside Table

Is it just me, or has this sudden drop in temperature taken anyone else by surprise??!! I can't quite believe that I've been leaving the house this week bundled up in thermals and a scarf, but there you have it- winter is indeed coming. Although the darker evenings already have me in serio…

14.10.2015- Interior Inspiration: Oliver Bonas

Although the change in seasons already has me chomping at the bit to snap up countless (predominantly wool based!) additions to my wardrobe, I'm also getting inspired to treat my interiors to a new season spruce up too. Perhaps it's got something to do with the prospect of cosying up indoo…

12.10.2015- What I Wore Today #234

At this time of the year, perhaps more than any other, I find myself keenly shopping around for new additions to my wardrobe. It's definitely got something to do with the shift in seasons, probably as the unpredictable changes in weather offer the perfect excuse to indulge in a spot of spendin…

09.10.2015- Autumn Essentials

I've always found that this time of the year is perfect for ringing the changes, and there's something about the transition between seasons which makes it the perfect opportunity for taking stock and treating yourself in anticipation of the winter to come. With that in mind, over the last …

07.10:2015- Adventures in Baking: Greengage and Pomegranate Pavlova

With the grand final of The Great British Bake Off airing tonight (!), I'm convinced that there couldn't be a better time to whisk up a celebratory feast in the kitchen. Whilst this series has been notably incident free (no 'bin-gate'...so far!!), I think it's been one of the b…

05.10.2015- On the Menu: The Modern Pantry, Finsbury Square

Contrary to popular thought, I'm firmly convinced that sometimes you can't have too much of a good thing. The Modern Pantry, which I posted about back in June has fast become one of my favourite foodie haunts, so you can only imagine how delighted I was to discover that they've just op…

04.10.2015- What I Wore Today #233

At this time of the year, knowing how to best dress for the tricky temperatures can be something of a fine art. Regardless of what's been forecast, over the last few weeks I've woken up to various combinations of fog, torrential rain and (however intermittently!) glorious sunshine. Such ch…

02.10.2015- My Month in Pictures: September

I know I start these posts with the same sentiment month after month, but once again I find myself slightly bewildered at how speedily the last four weeks have flown by. Sometimes when you've got lots of plans on the go, things can be a little bit of a hectic blur, so when I had some time off …
