A neighbourhood guide to Notting Hill: Cooks, Books, Florals, Food and the right footwear

posted on: Wednesday, 14 November 2018

I don't take you guys on enough tours through my neck of the woods in West London. For that, I'm truly sorry. But, I'm making it up to you slowly, but surely, starting with a little stroll through Notting Hill, in partnership with FitFlop. From the best doughnuts to the most beautiful blooms, here's a mini tour of what I got up to this weekend on a Saturday stroll, featuring my favourite little lesser known spots in the neighbourhood.

Style Update: Jason Wu for Eloquii

Here's the God's honest truth. I've worshipped Jason Wu since his name first made its way onto the fashion scene. That is no exaggeration. I have followed his career with great interest, knowing this man would be the missing link in the fashion world. Low and behold, he's moved mountains in fashion, and his reign is no where near its end. In fact, Wu is taking a stand in a new direction that will allow his designs to be worn by hundreds of thousands more women as he has collaborated with Eloquii on an evening wear collection. Now just imagine my surprise when Eloquii got in touch and told me that Jason Wu himself had picked me to showcase the collection. I'm still pinching myself. I had to read the email three times over. And I think you'll see my excitement showcased in the pictures I took to share each and every piece I was sent. 

FFG Travels: The Scarlet Hotel, Newquay, Cornwall

posted on: Tuesday, 13 November 2018

Cornwall has always been a rather mysterious place for me. For years, I've heard friends talk about their summers in Newquay, while I flew back to the USA to enjoy the warmer months, with guaranteed sunshine, alongside my family. Then, two years ago I was handed a book that, well, changed everything. Written by Milly Kenny-Ryder, The Weekend Journals Guide to Cornwall shone a light on a world I could have only ever imagined. Serene beaches, picturesque hotels, seafood extravaganzas and more were outlined on the pages, all photographed in a way that made this look like another universe entirely. After countless conversations with Milly about visiting the area, a trip was finally organised and it kicked off with a location that is probably the most photographed in the region - The Scarlet Hotel.

Style Update: Rosie's Cashmere-ical

posted on: Monday, 12 November 2018

When I think autumn winter, I think cozy cashmere. I can't help myself. It's the one area of my wardrobe where I absolutely splurge. The idea of spending a day on the couch, wrapped in cashmere, from head to toe, with a roaring fire, a cup of a tea and a good book.... well, are there any better days out there? So, I'm going to let you in on my ultimate cozy secret for this season.
