christmas cheer

SIMPLE AND CHIC With so much on at this time of year, I love having a dress that can go from coffee to afternoon drinks to dinner with friends. This shoestring slip dress from Bassike ticks all the boxes – elegant and comfy, it looks just as good with my favourite sneakers as it does with beautiful heels or even barefoot! It’s great for a sunset walk on the beach, then all I need is my light Turkish beach towel to dry my feet.

festive treats

FEEL THE BEAT Smart and comfortable, the wireless Beoplay H9 Headphones are my new best friend when travelling – they were brilliant on the flights for my recent European book tour! The BeoplayA2 Active speakers were also great for listening to music in the hotel room, and the iPhone 8 Plus (in gold, of course) meant that I could stay connected and take beautiful pictures, wherever I was. GOT THE EDGE I really take pride in working with the best – the best ingredients, the best people and the best tools. For Christmas this year I’m treating myself to this gorgeous handmade leather knife roll and adding a couple of special new hand-forged knives to my collection.
