If you need to escape on a rainy day, nip into Said, the new branch of a long-established Rome chocolate shop at 41 Broadwick Street in the heart of Soho. It’s small and cosy, there are tiled floors and the wall to ceiling is decorated with beautiful chromed brass, iron and steel chocolate moulds shaped as stars, shells, rabbits,Continue reading


Is toast back, has it become popular again? You can get cheese on toast at Rough Trade and even Dishoom offers a Chilli Cheese Toast – Cheddar melt on white bloomer. I keep meeting people who are so anti toast and anti carbs – it’s become so fashionable and almost a bit of a status symbol toContinue reading


Today I was up at 4:30am to go to Bath to style and art director a shoot for Bath in Fashion.  We were shooting real people who all had their own style and were representative of Bath from a music artist to a rugby player! One of my interns was so cute and stylish thatContinue reading


I love a tea party unfortunately it was raining for the Wedgewood Tea Party in Spitalfields which doesn’t seem ideal, but really a cup tea on a rainy is really quite a good thing!


To be a wedding dress designer you have to be quite a special person. Brides are not your average consumers! The White Gallery, one of the UK’s largest wedding shows for buyers, was held in London last week and during this time it was the perfect opportunity for smaller designers to showcase their collections asContinue reading

Bath is famous for it’s architecture but one must not over look the abundance of cafes and place to have tea. Just around the corner from the Abbey Hotel (where I stayed for part of my stay in Bath) I came aross Sally Lunn’s house – the oldest house in Bath – it’s a uniqueContinue reading

Most of us can’t really afford to own a piece of Dior so the alternative idea of a Dior cupcake might just be what you’re looking for. If you’d like something delectable for a fashion friend these Dior Limited edition Cupcakes at Harrods for £19 might be the perfect gift!


During London Fashion Week I always seem to be snacking and there is always an abundance of things to eat but after a week of cupcakes and cocktails I’m looking forward to a proper meal that includes vegetables!


I’ve celebrated American Thanksgiving in Paris, Toronto and London but this is my first real Thanksgiving in the US and it just feels so wonderful to celebrate with friends. Loving New York!


I met up with makeup artist Rachel Wood (you can see her on Plain Jane) for some pre-Thanks Giving preparations and we baked a Deepest Darkest Chocolate Cheesecake.


I love pops of colours. I think it’s because I’m hoping for warmer weather. I was never allowed sugary cereals when I was little and don’t eat them as an adult but I love the packaging – it’s just so happy and fun!

A Jubilee party with friends is the perfect way to celebrate ‘The Jubilee Street Party‘. We partied indoors to avoid the rain but the spirt of the street party and our love of picnics prevailed indoors! We lunched on traditional home made British foods like: Piggies in a Blanket and a ploughman’s lunch, with pimms.Continue reading


So many of my meetings seem to take place over cake with a glass of something bubbly. For the most part working in fashion is never as glamorous as it looks – but, every now and then it really is! Just as you feel one fashion week is over I’m already having meetings planning theContinue reading


Today I received two calls from my office "Are you coming in – you have presents!" I was going to go to the Phoenix office today anyways but now I was a bit more excited! Who could not be delighted to find a thank-you card, red velvet cupcakes from the Hummerbird Bakery (so delicious!) andContinue reading

It’s really important to take time out and it doesn’t have to be days or even hours. It’s the season of tea and cake – the perfect way to spend a bit time enjoying Christmas cheer!
