Have you ever been in a town on fashion week without any tickets? More precisely Milan, whose charms are evident but finite? Yeah, it’s definitely my fault but last minute niggles over tour plans meant I applied for tickets about half an hour before Milan Fashion Week started, then some work stuff got cancelled so [...]
Paris, just over the channel, I speak the language and one of my best friends lives there. So it’s kind of foreign but not, it still marked the first stop on the European leg of the journey. After dumping my stuff in our hotel, we walked a little while to Mum In Her Little Kitchen, [...]
Every Christmas there’s always a winning dish, it’s usually something unassuming that didn’t seem like it would take centre stage. Last year it was the super easy red wine braised lentils that blew everyone away and this year I’m happy to say it was once again a vegetable dish that trumped the meat fest.

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 [...]
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.

Don’t get me wrong, I love dirty food with an unashamed passion, – hi embarrassing Chicken Selects addiction – but really, I truly love eating healthy, homecooked food. That feeling of tucking into loads of delicious veg leaves you feeling lovely inside and out, I also get a real kick from cooking. Daks’ designer Sheila [...]
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 [...]
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 [...]
