An Indian Summer Picnic

Late summer in London often brings with it the chance of just a few more hazy days. What better excuse, then, for a leisurely Indian Summer picnic, complete with boating lake, bandstand, and bunting?

Wedding Guest Beauty Look

As a guest, getting your make-up look right for a wedding may pale in comparison to the bride, but there is a good chance you’ll still find yourself snapped and filmed throughout the day.

Interior | Styling Silk Flowers

The show gardens of Chelsea Flower Show have all but wrapped for another year, but you can still bring the outside in with some beautiful hand arranged silk flowers. Of course, nothing quite matches the scent (and sentiment) of fresh blooms, but faux petals have never looked more realistic. Unlike their fresh-cut equivalents, these arrangements… Continue reading Interior | Styling Silk Flowers
