In The Kitchen

I am learning how to cook but am famously bad at it which is crazy as I love food so much and love nothing more than to decorate a pretty table! I just bought Athena Calderon’s book and I am taking some masterclasses, I suppose you will know if I am getting better because I will probably start posting and gloating!

Watching

I have been watching Unorthodox and The Killing but also plunging back into the oldies. Singing in the Rain, The Philadelphia Story and Some like it Hot have been on my list.

On The Wishlist

Lusting over jewellery designer Irene Neuwirth's tropical anything really. They are so beautiful and just want to make you escape.

Reading

I am reading Writers & Lovers by Lily King and The Book You Wish Your Parents Had Read (and your children will be glad that you did) by Philippa Perry. Fun, light and easy.

Feel Good Moment

I am very excited about my 'rattan bonbons' that just launched and my trellis cotton dress. I cannot wait to wear them this summer even if it is just for a quick stroll around the block.

Beauty Must

Minois dry oil smells so delicious and clean. I stole it from the baby’s room and have been using it myself.

Nesting

I am expecting a baby in a few weeks and am having a slight bunny obsession. This bunny hop blanket is making my heart melt.

Feeling Inspired

I am hugely inspired by Inside Tangier, Houses and Gardens by Nicolo Castellini Baldissera. I want to jump into every page. Betty Catroux, Yves Saint Laurent: Feminin Singular makes me want to go back to a time where fashion was effortless and timeless.
