After five days in Hanoi, we hopped on a rather bleak overnight train to Sapa in northwestern Vietnam for a day of hiking through terraced rice paddies, past fields of wild animals, small villages and the local black Hmong and red Dao tribes before catching the sleeper back to the capital.

I'm much more of a silver girl than gold - with blue eyes, quite fair skin and dark hair, I've always gravitated towards cool colours over warm colours, so the majority of my wardrobe is black, greys and blues (have I mentioned I like blue dresses?) paired with silver jewellery.  But every now and then, gold jewellery catches my eye and these star pieces from Newbridge Silverware did just that.

Last week I received a parcel with 'Why send flowers when you can send Biscuiteers?' written on the outside.  Well, quite.  I love Biscuiteers - there are always squeals of delight at press days or when we're sent some at the office and I've featured the Easter egg tin before - but I also love gardening, always have fresh flowers at home, and my phone and camera are 80% full of flower photos (especially cherry blossom, magnolia and wisteria right now).  Put the two together and you have a very nice afternoon tea break indeed...

I love fashion editorials which tell stories and create characters, like this chic, sunny Harper's Bazaar shoot.  Featured in the May 2017 issue, Puerto Rican supermodel Joan Smalls plays happy families as a luxe vacationer with a mid-century vibe - prim pearls, preppy hairbands, pastel colourblocks and bold prints - complete with a hot husband (Justice Joslin), cute kids and awesome poodle.  Shot by Peruvian photographer Mariano Vivanco, styled by Jaime Kay Waxman.
