I have been lucky to be invited to Ascot a few times- the first time I went I hadn’t a clue of what to wear. Also, once you have been there you realize how much you are on your feet. The weather is also extreme; I was either passing out with heat or shivering! It […]

I love the jogger and it has replaced jeans as my go-to weekend throw on. I wear them casually with slides but I think this look is hard to pull off, so if in doubt keep joggers for when you can pair it with a heel. A heel is so much more flattering with a […]

Read Nuzy Sayani’s review of JINJUU. I recently enjoyed a return visit to Jinjuu, Judy Joo’s Korean restaurant that is sandwiched between Regent Street and Carnaby Street. When people think of Korea, kimchi, soju (Korea’s version of vodka) and Gangnam Style come to mind, but there is a lot more to discover. Jinjuu’s street level […]

Every year there is something I wish I had bought, as when I see it on others I realize how useful it would have  been. Not the case this year- thanks to a tip off from the glorious Hannah I snapped up this  Cecile Copenhagen set. All based on one pattern in different colours, Cecile […]

I really don’t look after my bags, and when I discovered the Handbag Clinic I was so delighted to be able to send off my most abused Celine for some tender loving care. There were pen marks and stains from kids snacks on the inside and lots of scuff marks and food stains on the outside. […]

The denim skirt is everywhere and I had decided, like the lace up flat, that this was a trend too far . I also think that denim skirts can be so unflattering- certainly over 40. Leave the shorter versions to the young, skinny ones … (Jane Simons) that means  you. Then I saw this picture […]

I was just starting to feel like I had enough of Isabel Marant  with a sea of Dicker boots and white blouses popping up at the school gates.  Then my super stylist friend Deborah recommended this trenchcoat called the Garnet. “Wow” is all I can say!  It is one of those pieces you know you will have […]

Bread is my thing. Maybe it’s because I’m Irish, but I love it and I have become obsessed by learning to bake my own. It is very helpful when people share great businesses  or people they have used, so thank you Antonia for sharing Bake with Maria with us. It was exactly what I was looking for. Cooking has not […]

I met the team of SET when I popped into the  Scoop tradeshow after Christmas. They really stood out in a sea of designers- I loved the quality and style but most of all the reasonable prices. It is all about wearable clothes, with a bit of an understated edge. The collection from SET will take you […]
