Guernsey

Posted in There's {a} Way

Hi lovelies! Happy Friday! Today I have jetted out of London again for another wedding… the fourth one in the past two months!! This one takes me to a quaint little port town on the UK Channel Island Guernsey, which is right off the coast of France. I am so excited to head out and explore and get a feel for the place.  I opted for something comfortable for the flight over with loose fitting cotton trousers and a simple white t-shirt.  An easy way to smarten up a casual ensemble is to add a blazer, something every woman should have in her closet. It is one of the most versatile pieces that I always reach for when going for a “borrowed from the boys” meets classic and tailored lady.  A great pair of heels and a few accessories help to personalise the look. Hope you have a great weekend!  Looking forward to sharing my outfit for the wedding next week! I will be channeling my inner Kate Middleton.  Cheers!

Bob Bob Ricard

Posted in Restaurants & Bars

Bob Bob Ricard is one of my absolute favourite places to dine in London.  Where do I even begin?  When you walk through the door it is like stepping into the glamorous and elegant world of 1950′s Mad Men.  All I want to utter is “Hello dahhhlings…. mommy’s home.”  The menu boasts a variety of options at a range of price points.  The food is tasty, some dishes more memorable than others, but they are all helped by the surrounding decor.  They have caviar, Russian vodka, afternoon tea, an express lunch, a pre-theatre menu, and best of all…. a champagne button. Yes, an actual button that when pressed delivers champagne to your table (for a price).  This is something I need installed by my bedside table.  Then all I would need is a little monkey (wearing a hot pink waistcoat of course…. and matching hat) that I could train to fetch the chilled bottle and pop the cork but I digress….  If you are in town visiting go here, if you live here add this place to the rotation. It is divine indulgence.  It is the perfect setting for any fabulous occasion, or just going to dine will be occasion enough.

Evening Stroll

Posted in There's {a} Way

Hi lovelies! Hope you had a grand weekend! I had a wonderful weekend back in London with my little lady friend Charlie as the Mr was in Italy for a stag do……. rough life.  So I spent my time vintage jewellery shopping at Camden Passage, hat shopping (I have my first British wedding to attend!!) walking Charlie in the park, meeting a lovely friend at The London Cocktail Club for a drink that turned into us closing the bar down six hours later, and rounding it out on Sunday with an opera in Holland Park with my ever so cultured British friends.  Sometimes it is so lovely to have a weekend to yourself all foot loose and fancy free! Have a wonderful Monday and enjoy! Cheers!

Southern Belle

Posted in There's {a} Way

Happy Friday y’all! I am wrapping up my time in the glorious South today with a little bit of Scarlett O’hara meets Annie Oakley.  A lady must always be prepared so when the boys began a friendly game of skeet shooting I just had to oblige.  I think they were more than surprised seeing me walk up to the line locked and loaded.  Also on a side note I have an updated feature for the website! You are now able to click on the images in posts to enlarge them for up close and personal perusal.  (Note: check out that sweet tan line that is only on the front of my body….)  I hope you all have a fabulous weekend!! Cheers!

Showing the boys how it’s done.
