Following the September 2016 runway show, for one week, Burberry transformed a former Foyle’s bookstore into a cafe and showroom to celebrate the launch of their new collection. The London show venue was opened to the public and made home to a different group of Britain’s finest makers each day, who could be seen practicing their craft. These ranged from sculpting and embroidery to caligraphy and miniature portraiture. Not only this, but there was the chance to see the collection up close.

We loved how interactive Makers House was, and it was so inspiring to see how the collection was brought to life. Even better was the joy of finishing off the experience with a coffee and some cake from the beautiful Thomas’s cafe cake table – and a trip into the studio photobooth before the line got too long!

I visited the Tate Modern’s new building, Switch House last weekend. It was only a flying visit where we did a quick overview of the new galleries, got a coffee at Albion and then onto brunch at the Mondrian down the road. I am definitley booking in to go back to see the Georgia O’Keefe exhibit that is currently on at the main gallery when I’m not preocupied with finding the best hangover cure possible – FYI the Mondrian’s breakfast burrito did the trick…

A couple of weeks ago I visited the James Turrell’s Lightscape exhibit at Houghton Hall in Norfolk. It’s a bit of a way away from London, but if you happen to be in the area it displays some really cool light scenes and the grounds of Houghton Hall are beautiful and relaxing, total city escape.

BATH

BATH HAY BATHSociety CafeIMG_9840

I visited Bath for the first time recently. I’m a huge Hay fan and Bath is where their first UK store is situated so we went on a bit of a pilgrimage. Between rain showers we proceeded to shop, enjoy the architecture and made a coffee stop at Society Cafe. I rate their cappuccino.  We also made a pit stop to see the Royal Crescent which was very impressive.

Sign me up to live in Bath.

Serpentine Pavilion ’15

This weekend my friend Katie and I decided to do culture and visited the Serpentine Pavilion, this year designed by Selgascano. We played for a bit, marvelled at it’s shiny insides and took some polaroids of us looking baffled then headed off to Sticks & Sushi for some chow. It’s really cool and colourful and we expect its great lit up at night.

SPRING

Birthday

Spring Birthday

I’ve been dying to go to Spring Restaurant at Somerset House for some time now and I finally went for my 23rd birthday last week. It was the most beautiful birthday setting. The interiors made me swoon, particularly the porcelain wall installation by artist Valeria Nascimento.

It was also a welcome chance to dress up – accessorised with my new scarf from & Other Stories that I’m obsessed with. Wearing H & M top, & Other Stories scarf and Charlotte Tilbury lipstick in Hepburn Honey.

I have to mention that the food was delicious too – I ate far too much, as per.

I’m older but definitely not wiser.
