Secret Garden

Coverflow-18

One of the things I love most about London is the many secrets it keeps in plain sight… These hidden gems are scattered all over the place, just waiting to be unearthed. A few rainy days ago, Grayson, Stefan and I set off for our usual morning stroll (aka mission to wear our toddler out), only to find ourselves in the ... Read More »

Cigarette trousers

Coverflow-3

Well helloooo there, floral cigarette trousers… Now there’s a sentence I never expected to type! Cami | Trousers | Sunglasses – old from Topshop – similar here  Okay, so my old beloved pair of floral trousers split. In public. Yup, that really embarrassing kind where they split right up the bum – wonderful. They were a pretty sentimental pair, too; ... Read More »

A Morning at Market

Coverflow-10

Buried somewhere between huge imposing glass buildings, hiding behind all the chains, franchises and all too familiar shops, restaurants and cafes, lies a small reminder of what London once was, Borough Market. This bustling little corner of London, harmonising with the occasional train rumbling overhead, is not only a great way to support small family businesses who have long been priced out ...

The toddler days…

toddlergracie

I had every intention of this blog post being a beauty one, I promise. I have my divine Charlotte Tilbury Sculpting Duo perched next to me, sparkling, perfectly poised to be photographed (and raved about for that matter). But after sitting here for fifteen precious nap-time minutes with my fingers lingering over the keys, while my tea slowly becomes undrinkable, I just can’t muster the motivation ... Read More »

Magsy’s smashed coconut and marshmallow cookies

IMG_1736

I haven’t gone over a week without blogging in so long now; I’m not sure what happened over the last couple of weeks, but I just had a bit of a creativity slump, a total lack of motivation. It happens sometimes and I just had to ride it out. So, in true lady style, I decided to eat my feelings. ... Read More »

Raising a baby and building a business

0V6A0013

Make no mistake, keeping a baby alive is a full time job, the only difference being you don’t get paid, you don’t get any time off and, if you want to complain about your terrible working conditions then your HR department are a bunch of muppets… literally. Since having my son, Grayson, I’ve been trying to spin a lot of plates –  vlogging, blogging, my ... Read More »

Super Skin Booster Smoothie

Peonies are in season, which means I have no excuse to feel sad any more…  Not only are they a visual Prozac, but they’re also a wonderful prop to make my kitchen look a little more feminine and less like a German operating theatre. Beautiful and versatile, what more could a girl ask for…? Oh yeah, chocolate cake. Oh well, you can’t have ... Read More »

Gracie’s bedroom…

0V6A0003

Creating a playroom for Grayson to house all his toys, trinkets and teddies has been an utterly enchanting experience.  I wanted to keep the design eclectic; after all, it is a room for him, not for me, and I didn’t want an eggshell colour scheme that would then dictate what colour toys I could buy him.  I also want the room to grow with him, so I ...

Almost another era…

0V6A0276

The sun was out to play, it was our two year wedding anniversary and our baby Grayson was having his first full day in nursery. What better way to spend this baby-free special day than to head to Richmond and pretend I was a carefree lady from the 1940s. London to me feels a bit like a great bottle of red wine; when you first ... Read More »

The Perfect Trench

0V6A0077

Spring is something a lot of us hormone-wracked ladies can relate to; one moment we’re seductively cradled by the sun’s warm embrace, and the next dark shadows crawl over our heads and cast everything in a sort of gloomy, wistful hue. Spring is certainly the most hormonal of all the seasons. It’s also the season when you need to choose exactly the right coat; nothing too ... Read More »
