Stuart Weitzman: All About The Boot

Stuart Weitzman: All About The Boot

Stuart Weitzman is all about the boot.

Like the faux, I was a little resistant with the idea of super long boots. What was I thinking?

Like most fashion statements, it is about finding the right pair and adapting the trend to suit.

No, I won’t be styling the over the knees like Gigi Hadid but I will be wearing them my way; not with shorts and legs that go forever, but with simple dresses.

Q & A: The 3 Top Serums?

Q & A: The 3 Top Serums?

If you ask, I will answer.

Today in a new series of Q&A, serums are the talk.

I have been asked recently which serums I prefer and why.

Serum is one of the key ingredients in my very simple beauty routine. Serum is the one product I regularly use and never leave home without.

It works for me.

Turmeric: The Wonder Spice

Turmeric: The Wonder Spice

Turmeric is a wonder spice.

I asked Lily all about why the hype for turmeric is so great.

Before I hand over to her, there is one element I will warn you about; the colour.

My first experience with turmeric was somewhat challenging. All I can say is the orange/yellow teeth stain which took forever to remove, was not a pretty look. Fortunately 3 toothbrushes later, it wasn’t permanent.

I must have become over excited and added to much of this wonder spice to the mix ;)

Inspired By #62: Linda Rodin

“I think one does feel more liberated and independent when one gets older.

More honest and open with yourself and others. But you still have insecurities—they’re different, but they don’t totally go away. But you reach a point and say ‘That’s OK.’ In the end, nobody’s perfect, and we’re all doing the best we can.” – Linda Rodin, Into The Gloss

Current Mood:”Garconne”

Current Mood:”Garconne”

This week’s mood has been in tune with, Garconne.

I have mentioned before my daughter Venetia has started a beauty booking app in London, a concierge service for beauty treatments both at home and in salons.

Ruuby makes it so easy to arrange all things beauty and as the mother I am very lucky to be spoilt.

No complaints from me.

Hotel Du Cap-Eden-Roc: Plus ça Change, Plus c’est la Même Chose

Hotel du Cap-Eden-Rock; it really is true to say the more things change, the more they stay the same.

I am slow today, still luxuriating in the most wonderful weekend we enjoyed at Hotel du Cap-Eden-Roc.

If you follow on Instagram you will know we were there to celebrate David’s birthday.

It was a big one and deserved attention, as does he. He is one amazing and fabulous guy.

The Simple Way To Detox

The Simple Way To Detox

The simple way to detox?

Is there such a thing? I mean, has detoxing ever been simple?


Lily tells me there are certain foods to aid detox and they are easy and delicious to incorporate in our diets. The more I learn from Lily, the more I see a pattern emerging. There are some foods we can’t avoid and we shouldn’t. 


After the summer and a little vacation time I need to up my intake of these foods.


What about you? Do you have any others we should include in our detox regime?

Over to Lily,

The Finishing Touch: Ready, Set And Puff

The Finishing Touch: Ready, Set And Puff

There is a finishing touch I can’t do without.

Can you guess? It’s powder.

I need a puff to not only feel made-up and ready to go but also to maintain my make-up during the day and evening.

Powder in the most part is essential but finding the right one can be downright hazardous.

Powder can be perilous.
