Dolce & Gabbana x Smeg “Sicily is My Love”

For as long as I can remember, I’ve been obsessed with all things interior related and fantasised about decorating my dream home. I mean, hasn’t everyone? While my overall aesthetic tastes have changed from year to year, sometimes even from day to day, the inclusion of multiple Smeg appliances in my fantasy kitchen has been a constant. As has the ideally-ever-growing roster of Dolce & Gabbana delights in my imaginary walk in wardrobe, which would obviously be Kardashian level extravagant and roughly the same size as my current apartment… Nothing…

It’s been a fair while since my last wining & dining post so I’m very happy to be sharing my recent rendez vous to Blakes London with you! Perhaps not quite the same level of pure jubilation that I felt after checking out the menu online in advance (who doesn’t do that) and seeing tuna tartare there, but it’s a close call. Writing that sentence just made me extremely hungry, which is very annoying because obviously my fridge is empty except for half a tin of sweetcorn and definitely less…

And so, mes amies, it’s time for the final instalment of my Bucharest travel diaries. What an adventure it’s been! Most people in my position would probably have condensed the whole thing into a couple of posts but you know that’s never going to be the case with me. Believe it or not I did actually try to keep things succinct, yet here we are on number three… Of the travel element at least. There’s a fair bit of fashion and beauty stuff from our Romanian excursion still to come. For now, I’m going…

Time for the second instalment of my Romanian adventures, mes amies! Aaaaaand once again I’m overwhelmed by the urge to get away ASAP; purely for work oriented, non personal lols motivated purposes of course. Anyway, as I mentioned in my previous travel diary there is a lot to do, see and enjoy in the city and we tried our damnedest to make the most of that. So, Bucharest Pt.2 let’s go…

Writing this post is making me absolutely desperate to get my next adventure booked in… It was THE MOST FUN! While Romania wouldn’t have been the first place one might think of when planning a vaycay but I strongly recommend getting yourself to Bucharest. I’ll definitely be going back asap…

As I may have mentioned perhaps a few too many times in my previous post, shooting something I feel excited about, preferably featuring wonderful clothes in a fantastic location, is one of my favourite ways to spend a day. But of course, six plus hours of styling, changing, posing, werking (not “twerking” as my autocorrect repeatedly insists I mean), running around and trying to realise the sometimes overly ambitious ideas you hoped to achieve is bloody exhausting work. It also works up one hell of an appetite! So where better for me and…

I know I’ve started SO many of my recent posts with a comment about how “British summertime is finally here, yay!” so I really want to not do that yet again this time. However, never could that kind of comment be more appropriate than in relation to this particular project. As discussed in many a previous post, weather isn’t really a factor in determining British summertime because frankly, it’s completely unreliable. Instead, it’s an array of long running, annual sporting events that mark the course of our supposedly sunniest season and…

Dining At: Beach Blanket Babylon

Did you happen to see the pink fluff and sheer chiffon REDValentino tastic shoot I posted a few weeks ago? If so, then you may well remember that our location was Beach Blanket Babylon in Westbourne Grove, Notting Hill. As I said probably fifteen different times within that piece, Beach Blanket is a place I have a deep and long running love for. I had my 21st birthday dinner there as well as my graduation dinner. I’ve indulged in one five too many cocktails sitting on the flower strewn terrace more times than I can remember (quelle…

Fun fact, I love cars. I’ve always loved cars. One youthful Christmas I even demanded my parents buy me “What Not To Drive” – the Top Gear equivalent of Trinny and Susannah’s iconic “What Not To Wear” tv series and spin off tome – as a present. This is not to say, however, I’m an expert on cars or even particularly knowledgeable for that matter. However, that has begun to change (a tiny bit) thanks to having been lucky enough to work with the one and only Maserati…
