I’m a culture and lifestyle journalist based in London. I’ve written about style and people for Intelligent Life since 2010 and I have a monthly colour column in Elle Decoration. I’ve also written for the Economist, the Evening Standard and House & Garden. I was a judge at the 2013 International Chocolate Awards (yes, it was the best gig ever). You can see a selection of my published work in the portfolio section.

I’m fond of all sorts of things including, but most definitely not limited to, clothes and jewellery I can’t afford, historical style – my background is in 18th-century dress history – beautiful books, chocolate, spaghetti carbonara, old movies and stationery. At my blog you will find all these things and more. It’s about style, food, design and anything else that catches my magpie-like eye. I hope you enjoy it.

Everything on my blog is there because I love it. I always credit and/or link to the creator but if it’s yours and you’d like me to remove or alter a credit please let me know.
