The Lonely Garden Cake

The Lonely Garden Cake

I came up with the concept for this cake when fashion label Lonely Hearts and I decided to do a collaboration. The idea was to base a cake on one of their new season prints, and we ended up choosing an intricate floral design, which inspired this cake – aptly…

Obsession Du Jour: The Prism

A Mirror’s Edge

A Mirror’s Edge

Photographic projects have taken filmmaker Vincent van de Wijngaard to more than 70 countries, and 3.1 Phillip Lim‘s latest campaign, ‘A Mirror’s Edge’, saw a creative team wandering barefoot into the ethereal sandscapes and scrambling in covetable Lim sandals across the otherworldly oasis of South Africa. We love how the…

Françoise Sagan

Françoise Sagan

Who wasn’t that girl that, at 17, dreamt of a summer romance like Cecile from Bonjour Tristesse? He would be older and wiser, you would be in Breton stripes with freckles on your nose, and you’d roll around in the sand near a discarded dinghy. And now, who isn’t that…

Pistachio, Basil & Mint Pesto

Pistachio, Basil & Mint Pesto

I adore pesto. It so perfectly captures the bright flavour of herbs. Not much grew in my garden this summer but I have had a nice crop of basil and mint. A pretty pesto seemed like delicious way to enjoy my little bounty. Not wanting to keep it totally traditional,…

To The Wonder

To The Wonder

“Although I pass through it often and always admire how beautiful it is, there was a particular quality that struck me on this day. It took my breath away. The colours – incredible, the sky all different greys and a faint lilac. The textures – the snow falling and the…

Breaky Stack With Carrot Hash & Poached Eggs

Oh breakfast time… how I newly lust over you each and every morning I wake up ravenous, looking forward to an hour languishing about in the kitchen, devouring my eggs and taking a moment before diving into the day. The best time. Sometimes I’ll even get a little fancy with…

Let Them Eat Cake

A lot of things caught our attention about the new Georgia Alice collection and campaign. There was that perfect shade of pink, the slouchy black suit pants, the flared skirts, the frayed edges, the sheeny shiny shorts and those baggy/tapered jean cuts that march to nobody else’s beat… and then…
