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

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.

Olivia Palermo: Steal Her Style

Olivia Palermo: Steal Her Style

Olivia Palermo has a style I appreciate.

She is much younger than me and can wear pieces well relegated to my memory bank and yet there are so many outfits she wears that I can replicate or take inspiration from.


Her signature style is one I would describe as ‘classic with a twist’.

It’s her mix, the way she edits pieces, I like best.

All That Glitters: Gold And Silver

All That Glitters: Gold And Silver

All that glitters is especially gold and silver this year.

Which had me thinking about metallic and my feelings towards the bright and shiny.

I remember back when gold and silver accents, let alone full metal fabrics, were considered not so chic; now in fashion, anything goes. As seasons come and go tastes change although I do believe there aren’t many surprises in fashion.

If you love fashion long enough you see most trends re-appear.

Gold and silver, what do you think?

Better Not Younger: A Game Of Challenge

Better Not Younger: A Game Of Challenge

Better, not younger.

The more I say it, the more I like it.

This is a game of challenge.
It is a challenge not to want to look younger, feel younger, act younger and “be” younger.

We know in all honesty we can’t but it doesn’t stop us trying.
Even the more confident of us must waiver slightly from time to time.

Awareness of what is right, the knowledge of good sense and the wisdom to follow through are not always by our side.

6 Ways To Clear Bright Eyes

6 Ways To Clear Bright Eyes

Clear bright eyes?

As much as holidays are about rest and relaxation they can also mean a little extra “fun” and lack of sleep. Before I left for our Greek getaway I asked Lily for some easy ways to keep eyes shiny and bright.

Eye health is something I am aware of, my mother has suffered from macular degeneration for many years and truthfully it’s one of those senses we need to be vigilant over.

It never hurts to be reminded of the natural ways we can look after ourselves. As well informed as we are, it is easy to lose track sometimes.


Here are the top 6 foods to keep eyes healthy and vision sharp.

Raspberry: With A “P”

Raspberry: With A “P”

Raspberry, with a “p”.

I have always found raspberry to be one of those very lovely words.

Albeit a word with a strange spelling.

What is the “p” all about?
There is nothing “rasping” about raspberry.  

Raspberry denotes everything luscious and delicious.
A word to conjure up goodness and pleasure in every which way. Whether raspberry is a taste, a touch or a vision, all in all raspberry is one potent word.
