Peek-a-look* – Winter Wardrobe

The leaves are slowly turning, the days are getting shorter and – worst of all – the temperature is beginning to plummet. Autumn is officially here. With winter chasing its heels (though there doesn’t seem to be much difference between the two these days!), [...]

Peek-a-look* – End of summer road trip

There’s nothing I love more than a summer road trip. Jumping in the car, with a boot crammed full of everything from walking boots to sun hats, and setting off to a playlist jammed full of sing-a-long tracks fills my heart with joy. Being prepared for (almost) every [...]

Peek-a-look* – Props from My Little French Kitchen plus Le Creuset giveaway

If the styling in my new book has caught your eye, a good place to start (if you’re looking at replicating the look in your own kitchen) is your local second-hand shop. I love a good vintage find, and living in France has enabled me to fiercely feed my love of secondhand kitchen bits and bobs.

Peek-a-look* – Picnic planning

My friends and family can attest that I am a true picnic lover. As soon as there’s even a hint of sunshine I’m already reaching for my picnic basket and dusting off the nearest picnic blanket.

Peek-a-look* – Window box gardening

In springtime, my little Paris kitchen takes a big sigh of relief, and comes alive with little signs of spring. Bunches of flowers, grocery bags full of fresh market goodies, and the odd tub of ice-cream all start making their way into my apartment :), as well as some new additions to my window box garden. Whilst we may not have heaps of space here in Paris, people make do with what they’ve got, and cultivate little green spaces in their homes – and at their windows.

Peek-a-look* – What’s in my bag?

Although recently it feels like my handbag has been stocked up with canelés from my trip to Bordeaux (where I’ve started shooting the photos for my new book) – usually I try and keep my handbag not too full (all the more room for treats!). Here’s a sneak peek into my (handbag) life:

Peek-a-look* – Getting into shape

I’m not naturally prone to sports. Growing up, I was more one to stay inside: doing creative stuff such as painting, drawing or playing my musical instruments – rather than be outside running around. So for me, doing exercise requires extra motivation. Sound familiar?
