Blame a really spectacular two-day migraine, which is still threatening to return, like a distant stormy cloud, on this late edition of Sundries. I haven’t just been lying down in a darkened room this week though, on no! See a sneak preview [...]
I’ve just been having a discussion this morning about heating, when you’re freelance and in the house all day do you put the heating on? I usually don’t and bravely suffer the cold until the evening when I need something super hot and cosy to warm me up.
This four greens risotto is the perfect [...]
Over the years I’ve gone all out for Hallowe’en, dressing as Lara Croft Womb Raider, Dot Cotton (twice), Columbo, a mustard packet, a cosplay fan and Piggy from Lord of the Flies, but this year I don’t think I’ll be dressing up. I still love the idea of going all-out with a ridiculous Hallowe’en [...]
Super-cute video on the making of Mulberry’s LFW invites, cute little Wedgewood cup and saucer sets.
As you read this I am in sunny Venice, most likely drinking a negroni and enjoying Jeremy Deller‘s exhibition at the Biennale. Two of my favourite things! Check my Instagram for smugadicci updatatorrini.
This week I got some new shoes c/o [...]
If you haven’t already seen this, naughty Jimmy Kimmel tricks NYFW-goers into spouting nonsense about made up designers. George Costanza? Yeah, really great fabric manipulation, love him.

Antoni and Alison were one of the first brands that I became aware of as a teen, spotting their witty slogan t-shirts in Just Seventeen’s fashion pages, so it was a real treat to be invited to their Rosebery Avenue tearoom in Farringdon. Ahead of their London Fashion Week presentation Antoni Burakowski – one half [...]
Despite some lovely sun I definitely have that back to school vibe, fashion week season has kicked off and I’m digging out the chunky jumpers. This week I came back from France and slowly re-adjusted to normal life, mainly by eating French cheese. Another treat from France was an amazing leather and wool American Retro [...]
Rowley Leigh talks about the origins of ratatouille in the FT, saying it comes from ‘rata’ which is army slang for food and ‘touiller’ which mearns to stir. When I asked my grandmother how she made ratatouille she scoffed and said: ‘well I get it frozen from Carrefour now!’ After more than 50 years of [...]
Back in the motherland having a break, been mostly eating, sleeping, working (bien sur) and sneaking internet breaks. Oh and getting a TAN. Obvs. I’m ‘gramming the days away if you need more of me, but here are some slightly sun-dried, not quite fresh links from my last two weeks..
“The closest I ever felt [...]
