Time 4 Sleep

When I first moved to London, my first job was working on interiors magazines.  I still have the first issues with my name in the masthead: first in advertising, then marketing and editorial.  Over the years I've accumulated many ripped pages (and of course Pinterest inspo) for when the time came to furnish my own place.  We moved into an unfurnished flat in a 19th century house on a leafy residential street in Camden this March, and we've been slowly furnishing it over the past six months. First and foremost, we needed a bed.

Puno, Peru

After begrudgingly leaving the beautiful Amantica Lodge, we sailed across Lake Titicaca in southern Peru for four hours, stopping off at Uros Islands - incredible floating islands built entirely from interwoven reeds grown in the shallows of the lake, housing locals and Andean birds swimming through the grasses - and arrived at Puno.

Lalique L'Amour

I'm somewhat of a perfume addict.  I've always loved adding the finishing touches to an outfit with my favourite jewellery and a few spritzes before heading out the door to face the day - I don't feel dressed without it.  I currently have ten beautiful bottles on the go, choosing whichever one suits my mood and look each day.  The latest addition to my fragrance family is L’Amour from luxury French house Lalique, and it's lovely.

Kew Gardens in Spring

Cast your mind back to when spring had sprung, England was in full bloom, your Instagram feed was filled with cherry blossom, and we rejoiced at the novel return of crisp, sunny, longer days...  Spring is my favourite season, and one of my favourite days out in London - all year round (it's fun at Christmas) but especially in spring - is spending a few hours wandering around Kew Gardens on a bright, lovely day.
