Miss me? Don’t fret my darlings, the seven day hang-over from cheap champagne was just a rumor and I certainly have not been attacked by the cheetah being taxadermied for the living room (though he was not happy).

I am simply taking some time off ~ a holiday of sorts to find inspiration, drink from coconuts and have a love affair with a certain somebody.

I will be back in April with a deep golden tan and delicious tips on how to live everyday like a vacation…

Ta ta for now!

 
 

This tub reminds me of that fabulous weekend last Spring when the girls and I took a seemingly relaxingly weekend jaunt to the English countryside for Cordelia’s hen’s party and discovered the most delightful hotel in Lucknam Park. (Of course upon arrival, what really ensued were copious amounts of champagne consumption and curious whispers from the hotel staff). Regardless of our reputation in Lucknam, I wish I were there now soaking in the hotel’s decadent bathtubs. This beautiful, freestanding, footed one from Drummonds transports me right there, and I must say, I would relive that awful, bubbly-induced hangover all over again to take just one more indulgent dip.

Darlings, staying warm and chic is imperative at this time of year but don’t you just abhor the added bulk that layering and knits can incur? That is why I am so ecstatic to discover that my most adored British cashmere line Crumpet is now available here in the US via netaporter. Their casual luxe aesthetic is sure to please the most spoiled fashionista; think a grunge-chic cropped cardigan in a soft camel or a divine cashmere biker jacket. Trust me when I tell you that Crumpets’ pieces keep the chill factor at bay and are slimline enough to keep you looking sleek and chic.
