A lunch less ordinary

Ryvita

Everyone has a go-to Ryvita topping. It might be cream cheese, maybe it’s marmite (me) or  cheese and pickle… but it wasn’t until I was challenged to come up with an exciting topping, that I realised I was in a Ryvita Rut. An RR.

Is it a phone box? No. It’s a salad bar.

Spiers Salads

I love this.

I love love love this.

London’s iconic pillar box red phone boxes are being given a new lease of life by the Red Kiosk Company, who are renting them out to new start ups all over the land… They design and create ‘retail pods’ for fantastic folk with big ideas, like Ben Spier.

9 ways to get cultured in May

Maureen Lipman in My Mother Said I Never Should

Maureen Lipman in My Mother Said I Never Should

Oh well hello there.

We’ve popped out at the end of the Bank Holiday and have just 4 days left before it’s Saturday again and we can watch Thundercats in our pyjamas. (Is Thundercats even on any more?)

I’ve been away in Brighton these past few days with LM… holing up in a gorgeous airbnb flat, strolling down to the sea, eating ice cream and recharging our batteries.

Getting my Summer on…

Fat Face

Summer is so very nearly here… it’s twinkling on the horizon and the weather is just trying to catch up with itself… we’re in a kind of in-betweeny stage, with showers, wind, sun and clouds all making an appearance…

Slow tea and biscuits

Le Creuset Kettle

I use energy all the time. And I don’t mean my own personal energy (as I use A LOT of that) but more the energy of electrical appliances. My phone, my laptop, the TV, my hairdryer… and straighteners… and curling tong things that I still can’t work out how to use…

My St James’s: Stepping back in time…

Berry-Bros

Berry Bros & Rudd Ltd

The area of St James, is London with its top hat, white tie and tails on. It’s London wearing its best bow tie, while it enjoys the most delicious whiskey and puffs on its favourite cigar…while it buys its organic sourdough, wears the newest trends and sips the most delightful coffees and cocktails…

It’s London from another era, colliding with the new and the modern…and creating something even more magical than those architects in the 17th century ever thought possible….

Weekend Escape: Puente Romano, Marbella

Do you see that sunshine? Yep. That sunshine right there is the overriding memory of my gorgeous few days at Puente Romano Beach Resort & Spa in Marbella last month…

Short weekend breaks to grab a little bit of sunshine,  before Spring kicks in here in London, are such a treat… and this luxurious resort was the perfect place to relax, feel the sun on my skin and begin my dreams of Summer…

Liberty London X Paperless Post

Liberty London for Paperless Post

On Tuesday I found myself at the most gorgeous breakfast in the Heritage Suite at Liberty, to celebrate their new collaboration with Paperless Post – the American website that has completely revolutionised online and REAL LIFE paper invitations. And whom I have loved dearly ever since one of their invitations pinged into my inbox a few years ago…

Sundae Best

Haagen Dazs and Liberty

I love ice cream. And when I say I love ice cream, I mean I really REALLY love ice cream. I love it like you might love clocking off on a Friday. Or finding a £20 note in your jeans. (Never has happened to me but I live in hope). I REALLY love ice cream.

So when I heard that Häagen-Dazs  were launching two new, limited edition, floral inspired flavours… I had to try them. The Little Garden range will be available exclusively at Liberty London from 11th April for a very short time… so it might be worth getting in the queue now, because they are absolutely GORGEOUS and stocks are limited…
