Brow Pal

I’m constantly searching for what I like to call: ‘minimal effort make up tips’.  Some people love makeup and the ritual of re-applying it throughout the day – but that is not something I subscribe to. For me, applying make up once in the morning is more than enough; unless I’m heading out that evening to … Continue Reading

Home Grown Fun.

Growing up spending Sunday lunches at my grandparent’s house feasting on roast potatoes, lamb, and stuffing with all the trimmings, are fond memories I reminisce on to this day.  Those memories are intrinsically linked to helping my grandfather in his vegetable patch in the garden – where picking, trimming and then cooking our haul of vegetables … Continue Reading

Is Mama Cool Again?

Now that my pre-children life of everyday castings, jetting around the world, and working alongside the crème de la crème of the fashion world is over – the majority of my wardrobe is now useless and underused when faced with the daily rigmarole of being a mum.  Goodbye high heels and dry clean only clothes, … Continue Reading

Home from Home Holiday Heaven.

Since moving to Barcelona, and living in what feels like a constant Summer holiday; we decided that this summer it would be fun to take a holiday into our previous lives: in Primrose Hill, London.  Some may think this strange and slightly left-field, perhaps even an odd choice to holiday in our old, normal life … Continue Reading

Unfry My Brain

Having children fries your brain in a way that no amount of partying in your previous life can account for. Sleepless nights, 4:45am wake up calls, weaning issues, getting to work on time, the constant worry about the kids…all this leaves little room in the cerebellum for anything else except a quick browse of dailymail.co.uk … Continue Reading

Away from Las Ramblas

Since moving to Barcelona, I have been lucky enough to cross paths with some interesting and knowledegable people who seem to know a thing or two about the cool, hidden-away places in Barcelona to eat, drink and, maybe, be merry.

Runaway Weekend

The great thing about living somewhere new, is that there is so much yet to discover… especially when the internal sense of adventure is burning strong. Now we live so close to an amazing beach, and with the beauty of the Spanish seaside landscape all around, it is easy to become complacent and not venture … Continue Reading

You’ve Got to Run With It!

On the spur of the moment (a mad moment in hindsight) both Jess and I decided to participate in the Tough Mudder race.  Our dear friend Shona @themodeladvocate asked if we would like to participate to help support her cause.  Not thinking much of it, we agreed, and subsequently firmly pushed the decision to the … Continue Reading

Bicycle Blues

I longingly look at my wardrobe full of fantastic finds I have accrued over the years of living in different countries and given to me from shoots, trying to find events, outings, evenings out… anything, where I can dust off the Joseph or Celine pieces I have stashed away from my past life pre-children, desperately … Continue Reading

Throwing in the Towel

Having Sunday lunch with my other half, Simon and my two children on a day when Simon’s favourite football team – Tottenham Hotspur – are playing, always involves a laptop sitting pride of place at the table.  This Sunday at Porta Gnesta just outside Barcelona, at the new Russian themed pizzeria Madrelievito, was no exception. … Continue Reading
