The Month of July

Cooked: Gazpacho a la Hairy Bikers, Cheese and Pickled Onion Tart (Grazia) for Warmth's birthday, Lemon and Poppy Seed Cake (Hummingbird) without the popy seed - damn you Tesco's. Warmth made Delia's Gazpacho - we'll be sticking to that one in future..

Read: That Mad Ache Francoise Sagan, Mrs Harris Goes to Paris Paul Gallico, Vagabond Colette

Summer Exhibition at Royal Academy with dear print making frineds. My favourite artist Farah Sayed had a painting in again.

Discovered two new pubs - The Leather Market - good cocktails and The Garrison - feminine perfection for a pub. I shall be returning...

Porn Star Martinis at The Electric - oh they are wonderful. Two is the perfect number.

Birthday drinks at The Gherkin (Gherkin Fizz not a good choice of cocktail)

A BBQ, visiting dear friends new home, Cricket - again one time too many this year. Celebrating a dear dear friend's birthday with fizz, friendship and flowers.

Toe nails - Essie Watermelon, Opi 'Show down at the ok coral' -a little too much pink and shimmer. Essie Material Girl on toes a little too dark for summer. Trying out 'Flawless' Essie a pink for next Saturday's wedding. Quite like it. Actually wore Opi 'Jade is the new black' which surprisingly went well with my blue dress, and was inspired by walking past the police station and seeing green and blue on a poster and realising it did work.


  1. A very full and eclectic July!

  2. Is that the Garrison next to the Fashion Museum? Definitely a girly pub, I love it.
