It’s Granny’s birthday week so we arranged a special trip to London for dinner, The Dorchester and diamonds. Granny wanted to choose some new earrings as a birthday treat so we headed to Boodles to be seriously spoilt with champagne, chocolates and jewels. Granny tried on pretty much the entire Boodles earring collection and entertained us with tales of her previous jewellery acquisitions, whilst I piled on the rocks and adorned my wrist with the most stunning cuff. Once the special pair had been chosen, we headed off to 34 for the most divine lunch and more birthday toasts. With the sun shining, it was time to slowly wander back to The Dorchester to reluctantly send my parents and Granny on their merry way.

Pips is one of my oldest friends and a super clever, fun and talented girl. We both live in London but with busy schedules we generally meet for a hurried catch up in a big group. This week we decided to take a little step back. We both had a free afternoon and having just moved house, it was the perfect time to head over to Pips’ new pad for a cosy afternoon of catching up on boys, business and blogging. You know that I’m loving monochrome looks at the moment and this is just another variation - all navy, in cosy wool, chenille, velvet and suede.

Silver Grey

Smith Terrace, London

Equipment grey cashmere  sweater: style and steal
J Brand white skinny jeans: style and steal
Jimmy Choo silver patent leather wedges: style and steal

The cold air may have swept over London but luckily the sun continues to shine. On a cool, crisp autumn afternoon we wandered through the pastel coloured streets of Chelsea and soaked up the sunlight. I’m loving monochrome outfits at the moment - varying shades of one colour palette in a multitude of fabrics - the cosiest grey cashmere, high shine silver patent leather and this fabulous ombre boiled wool cocooning coat to cosy up inside.

Housekeeping One Embankment

Giuseppe Zanotti black leather high tops: style and steal

After a busy summer residency at Blue Marlin in Ibiza, Housekeeping were back in London and their sold out party was not to be missed! We rallied the crew and headed over to One Embankment to be wowed by lasers, lights, beautiful dancers and of course the very best in deep and tech house. We headed up to our table on the galleried mezzanine to be plied with gallons of Belvedere vodka and the most amazing view, before bumping into friends, and even Carl’s parents made an appearance all the way from Sweden. Heading down to the DJ booth was quite an experience - bright lights, camera flashes, confetti, and I even got to push the button for a blast of CO2 when the baseline dropped. The boys just keep managing to outdo themselves. OK, so I might be slightly biased, but we all can’t wait for the next party!
