Hazy days and rocking a face mask

By Monday, 21 September 2015 Brit Stuff, Health & Fitness

First off, what has been enveloping us here in Singapore shouldn’t be called haze. That makes it sound too friendly and unapologetic. How about smog? After all, that’s what this looks like (above).

I cling somewhat desperately to the notion that smog caused by land clearances fires must be less toxic than poisonous air belching out from factories in China, but I am not basing that on any solid facts. It does, however, make me feel better. If only a little. Read More

French pharmacy joy

By Thursday, 23 July 2015 Beauty, More Dash than Cash, My Edits, My Holidays, Travel

I am easily pleased when I am in France. The inaugural trip to the supermarket even elicits squeals of excitement: there is just something about mountains of fresh, local produce, espadrilles that only cost €5 and Marseille soap.

The excitement doesn’t end there though. I am equally well disposed towards a French pharmacy.

British Idyll: The Wild Rabbit, Kingham

By Saturday, 18 July 2015 Brit Stuff, Day Trips, Food & Drink, Hotels & Places to Stay, My Edits, My Holidays, Restaurant Reviews, Travel

Daylesford Organic has become an institution, first starting life as a farm shop in the sleepy Costwold village of Kingham before expanding well beyond the confines of London – to as far a field as Tokyo, in fact, where they have a franchise store.

The Wild Rabbit is Lady B’s latest project that I made it to for lunch, not so long ago, on a gorgeous and somewhat rare English summer’s day.

I have been utterly lame of late and blog posts have been horribly sporadic…I am, however, in possession of rather a good excuse. Namely that I am ‘book pregnant’. Stay tuned for more details. I am about 6 months away from publishing.

Original hat hire in London

By Tuesday, 9 June 2015 Brit Stuff, Fash, My Edits, My Holidays, Travel

Heading to the UK any time soon? I was loaned two insanely fabulous headpieces last year when I was back in Blighty for Royal Ascot as well as several weddings. The lovely London-based girls who run The Hat Club asked me to hold fire on posting about them until it was hat season again, which it certainly is now.

Last summer I had three weddings to go to and only so much space in my suitcase. Harriet and Lucy to the rescue, who appear to have set up The Hat Club for people just like me.

Essentially a fresh take on a hat hire company, these gals have done their research: they only seem to stock genuinely covetable creations. Everything I saw on their website I instantly want to jam on my head and wear. Milliners that they stock include Philip Treacy and Gina Foster as well as up and coming names such as Emily London and Rosie Olivia. Prices range from £45-120.
