A Colourful Dinner Party





Last night I was invited to dinner by the Rainbow Club at a pop up restaurant called The Art Of Dining in Marylebone.
The Rainbow Club whose customers include Kate Middleton and Poppy Delevinge hand dye their bespoke satin shoes .
The menu was styled by colours – and the lights, tablecloths, music all changed according to what we were eating.
It got a little dicey during the ‘black’ course when in the darkness, guests started grabbing the white wine bottle instead of the water.

Rug Shopping




You have to love what you live with but I’m currently locked in a bitter love-hate ( more hate than love it has to be said) relationship with our large living room rug.
It was expensive and some would still look upon it fondly but some days it makes me want to roll it up and throw it out the window.
So, this week when we had some free time, we set off on an expedition around London, to see what other options rug world had to offer us.
Two famous places we visited were Liberty, full to the rafters with more traditional sorts.
They were also filming their Channel 4 documentary again and I got very excited when I saw the older Indian lady from the cushion department trying to sell her wares.
Second stop was The Rug Company in Notting Hill, and as a consequence are now sending us a few to sit with at home to see how they feel ..

Shades Of Grey

Move over moody black, grey is taking over this Autumn-Winter. I don’t know about you but I personally love a little grey. It’s cool and it doesn’t have to try to be chic. If it had a nationality it would be French.
The right grey cashmere jumper can make me stop still in a store while making strange noises like – ‘aggh, sooo nice, all while rubbing it to my face like some crazy person.
My sister is visiting today and we are spending the day entertaining my toddler who doesn’t give a hoot about grey or any other colour at the moment. His favourite words that he repeats often are ‘ Daddy’s car’, ‘car’, ‘stinky’ ‘cat’ and ‘itzz stuck’, and ‘mummy’s shoes’


My look today



Layer with chunky scarves. Grey on Grey can look amazing. Zara, have some fantastic scarves in at the moment.

How a rainy day can be completely NEAT


Yesterday, as the heavens opened and it poured and poured, I looked down at my open toed heels and thought okay, British weather you’ve finally beaten me.
It was time to start packing away things like my white lace dress, and my light print trousers in order to make room in my wardrobe for Autumn-Winter warmers.
However, despite my heavy heart as I folded away summer – this NEATstorage range developed by TV presenter Anthea Turner who asked Ballet Pumps And Roses to review her collection made my task a whole lot easier and tidier.
I also love its pretty uplifting light blue colour which the storage boxes, and hanging shelf organiser all are designed in.
I fitted everything in very easily and these are all stored away safely now until next year’s sunnier days.
