A New Video for Canada Day & Canadian Fashion Flashbacks

A new video was released today featuring the Duke and Duchess marking Canada Day.  The video features the royals speaking with frontline medical workers at Fraser Health’s Surrey Memorial Hospital in British Columbia. It is the second-largest hospital in British Columbia.  There is a light moment off the top when William asks, “Can you see us?” In unison, the response came back, “No, we cannot.” Once the video connection was established everyone cheered and waved.  Here is a brief portion of the video.  🇨🇦 On Canada Day we say thank you to frontline workers across the country for your amazing work protecting and supporting your communities.#CanadaDay | @FraserHealth pic.twitter.com/IYoWdw2yTd — The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge (@KensingtonRoyal) July 1, 2020 The video was recorded l...

The 15 Best Things to Do in Santa Monica & Venice Beach in a Weekend

You’ve probably seen photos the fun ferris wheel on the pier and thought I can’t wait to visit Santa Monica in California! Or videos of muscle beach and palm tree-lined walkways in Venice beach and wondered if you could maybe visit both beach towns on the same weekend. Well, you’re in luck because these are the best things to do in Santa Monica and Venice beach over a weekend or better yet a 3-day weekend.Both Santa Monica and Venice Beach are west of downtown Los Angeles and just north of Los Angeles International Airport, along the Pacific Ocean. If you are driving from Northern California or San Diego County, they are easily accessible via the 5 and 405. If you are from out of state, you are just a hop, skip, and a jump from LAX.Because we drove, we had a car at our disposal, but one i...

What to Wear on a Road TripWhen traveling for long distances in a car it can be a little difficult to decide what would be the best outfit to wear on a road trip.

Harriet Walter on authenticity & ageing

Photo: Independent   Glorious, glorious Harriet Walter. One of the finest British actors appeared on our screens this week in Alan Bennett’s updated Talking Heads series. This is not binge-watching material –  some episodes ( particularly the one with Imelda Staunton) are excruciating – so I’m taking it slowly, one monologue at a time. In Soldiering On, Walter is magnificent as Muriel, a woman whose life starts to unravel after the death of her husband. The always brilliant actor also stars in the latest series of Killing Eve, playing Dasha the former Russian gymnast who taught Villanelle how to be an assassin. And frankly she’s the best thing about it. Can’t help thinking the BBC should’ve killed this off after season one. In 2011, Harriet Walter published a short book Facing It: Reflect...

Pink Top & Black Jeans

These photos were taken around August last year, on a blistering hot day and I actually ended up regretting wearing jeans, ha ha. I hadn’t gotten around to sharing the pictures yet as I had other ones to edit, then Autumn took over and these got left behind, however with the Covid issue, this has actually worked out better as I have a Summer look to share with you! My outfit was a Pink Knitted Mango Tank Top, which I styled with my L’AGENCE Margot Skinny Jeans in Graphite (I do still live in these!), my B-Low The Belt, my Alexander McQueen Oversized Sneakers, and my Saint Laurent White Sunglasses, finished off with a Mango Shell Necklace. I wasn’t completely sure if I loved the outfit when I put it together because of the sunglasses, but I went with it. Sometimes it’s all abo...

A Brand New Q&A With Me!

It’s been quite a few years since I did a Q&A and answered some of the standard questions, as well as some of yours, so I thought I would update you with one!

I will be 32 on August 3rd! What’s your height and weight and clothes size? I’m 5ft 4″ tall (I used to think I was 5ft 5″ and it turns out I measured wrong, ha ha!). I weigh approximately 145 pounds. My clothes size varies between a UK 8-10 (US 4-6) with a jeans size of around a 28 in premium denim. My shoe size is a 39/40! What colour are your eyes and natural hair colour?
