SHOP THE LOOK: Jacket - DVF (available at ANNA), Cami - Mes Demoiselles, Trousers - By Second Female, Bag - DVF
It's that time of year again and with it comes party season!

I love fur anytime but especially during the festive season, this jacket by DVF is perfect to glam up most outfits and to keep out the cold on winter evenings. Velvet is everywhere at the moment and is fab for the party season! My fave velvet number is Second Female's wide leg trousers, they're a great cut (I'll also wear them in the day styled with white trainers and a tee). I've teamed them with Mes Demoiselles silk cami... I always find a silk cami so handy for evening wear styling. Finish the look with this chain strapped silk pouch bag by DVF.
SHOP THE LOOK: Clothing as before, SHOES - Lucy Choi

SHOP THE LOOK: DRESS - Rixo (available at ANNA)
This Rixo dress is one of my favourites, the fit is amazing and I love the open back. The black is broken up by colourful embroidery... very on trend. I've teamed it with Isabel Marant Etoile Dyna boots, but it equally looks fab with a stiletto heel for dresser occasions, try Lucy Choi's Bouvier heel.

Crazy time to do a party wear photoshoot, just as storm Angus is building momentum... excuse the flurry of leaves and windswept hair!

Petersham Nurseries

Last weekend was perfect... The sun was shining so RP and I decided on a little jaunt to Richmond for a walk and then shopping and lunch at Petersham Nurseries.  We are doing some work on our house so I'm on the lookout for interesting pieces... and there are plenty of yummy things at Petersham.

RP doesn't like shopping AT ALL so the lure of Petersham Cafe and the promise of a wonderful meal was exactly what I needed to keep him interested in all the 'bric a brac' (his words not mine!)

It's the perfect place for wishing and dreaming... You just need quite a full wallet (for the one-off furniture pieces) and an empty stomach (for the wonderful food)!
Enjoy Lunch.......

Well worth a visit.

Super fast food by Jason Vale

What can I say ....... My favourite and the only 'Juice Master' has written a COOKBOOK!! 
Jason is not only one of the funniest guys I've ever met, he's a walking (jumping) juice bean and now also a brilliant healthy chef.  Just when we were all thinking of going back to Nigella and full fat, good old Jas comes up with an absolute gem!
I've tried a few of the recipes and they were all super tasty. I urge you all to have a go.....oh but word of warning, Jas has been a bit tight on the prep time...this mint 'n' rocket hummous, 2 mins prep time!! Do me a favour, took me 2 mins to open the butter beans tin!!

Mint 'n' rocket hummous. Great anytime with anyone!  My family get through boxes of these Kale crackers now they have a healthy dip to go with.
Whizz it up in the Nutri Bullet, I added a little bit of water to loosen it, go steady though.
Prawn Thai green curry.....really really quick, easy, healthy supper.  Serve with brown rice
Pecan Power Granola Balls... OK so these are meant to be bars but I decided they worked better for me as balls. Quite frankly just eat these whenever you feel like a energy boost or just as a sweet treat.
Also, I did all this in my temporary kitchen, and it was quick and easy!

Styling Primrose Park AW16

SHOP MY OUTFIT: Top - Primrose Park, Gilet - Gushlow and Cole, Jeans - Frame, Boots - Isabel Marant (available at ANNA)
Primrose Park is my own label that I wholesale to other stores and of course I sell it in ANNA.  I thought I'd take this opportunity to share a few of my favourite styling ideas and how I'll be wearing the collection this Autumn.
I love shearling so this fab pale pink gilet will be in my wardrobe and it compliments my 'Falling Leaves' print button shirt. Team with skinny jeans and Isabel Marant Dicker boots... perfect!
SHOP MY OUTFIT: Top - Primrose Park, Shirt - Current Elliott, Jeans - Frame
I've styled the Primrose Park Mandy top with a camo jacket/shirt, a client of mine informed me that this is a 'shacket'!  Well whatever it looks great with this top!
SHOP MY OUTFIT: Dress - Primrose Park, Gilet - Gushlow and Cole (available at ANNA), Hat - Rag and Bone
Another Gushlow and Cole gilet teamed up with this very easy day dress... I don't usually wear hats but I can't resist this one by Rag and Bone.
SHOP MY OUTFIT: Top - Primrose Park, Jeans - Frame
This is my favourite print from the collection and this shirt is our best selling shape, also a snip at £99!

Buyers Diary

I've been buying again in Paris, the seasons seem to be getting closer and closer... I remember when I used to take the summer off!  
I'm buying collections for SS17 and yet again I'm excited about what lovely things we will have coming in.
Below is the Joseph collection, sold in my Burnham Market and Saffron Walden stores. 
One of my absolute favourites, Sophie Anderson... everyone should own at least one of these yummy bags... stand out on the beach!
Rag and Bone's collection was cool and directional, love these colours together.
We always sell the boots from Rag and Bone

These bags are Elizabeth and James – fabulous colours, textures and shapes.
New to ANNA, E&J sunglasses, I love these!
Uber cool LA label WATER, This is a sneaky look at their campaign images...
