Destination Dubai

Destination Dubai

This Bloggerati Getaway is proudly sponsored by Dubai Tourism. Last night, I had a desert dream. It was a vivid experience where I was consciously trying to live in the moment. I was standing on a sand dune, wriggling my toes so I could feel the sand on my feet, my face was turned towardsContinue Reading

How Cool Is This?

How Cool Is This?

    I have just over one week to go before I head off to Dubai. So while I am preparing for my auction next weekend, arranging furniture installs for real estate listings in the week that I get back, taking phone calls from family members about Christmas presents for nieces and nephews (Christmas? what?Continue Reading

Dreaming Of Cold Places

Dreaming Of Cold Places

It’s about this time of year, when the weather starts to get really hot (and the upcoming weekend forecast is 42 degrees celsius in the shade), that I start to think about snow covered mountains, ice bars, ski lifts and egg nog. Stumbling upon this ‘Alpine Lodge’ Lifestyle Collection, by Ralph Lauren, doesn’t help either.Continue Reading

A Highlight Reel, If Ever There Was One

A Highlight Reel, If Ever There Was One

Such an exciting week around these parts! Firstly, my beauty at 46 Park Terrace Sherwood went under contract, after 3 days on the market. My delighted sellers and buyers put me on such a high to start the week. Next, my sweet boy not only took out the subject prizes for IB (International Baccalaureate) FrenchContinue Reading

This Week. The Best Bits.

This Week. The Best Bits.

Hanging out with great people in the homes I am selling. iTunes Radio! My new balcony fairy lights. The paintings in a beautiful home I visited this week. My Friday Haloumi at Justine’s …. … and my coffee shop ‘counsel’, who always set me on the right track for the next week. It takes a village!Continue Reading

Bastille Day 2014

Bastille Day 2014

I made a bit of an effort last night, for our Bastille Day celebrations. I cooked a nice meal and ensured that the French music was on high rotation, especially Les Mis. I have a very special affinity to that musical, as I met my husband when we were both performing in the 1995 QMTCContinue Reading

Hamptons Monthly

Hamptons Monthly

Now I know if you follow me on Instagram you would have already seen this beauty but I just had to record it for posterity, here on my beloved blog. My photo of the Ralph Lauren store in Southampton, that I took when I was in the Hamptons in 2012, made the cover of theContinue Reading

A Sunday Jaunt To The Hamptons

A Sunday Jaunt To The Hamptons

It’s been a very eventful week. My boys have finished the school term, after putting in a huge effort. Eldest is now as sick as a dog. It’s always the way, isn’t it? The body holds on just enough to get through the stress of exams and then collapses. Poor thing. He always spends hisContinue Reading

Monday Nook

Monday Nook

A little Swiss window nook. Switzerland = nook central. The exterior window nooks were heartstopping … and it amazed me that people didn’t vandalise or steal any of the pretties that were openly on display on pretty much every window sill. It’s all in the details, as they say! Happy Monday! A-M xx  

Zermatt In Pictures

Zermatt In Pictures

We headed to Zermatt for Christmas. They say ‘a picture paints a thousand words’ … so I will let my pictures tell our story … A-M xx

The Lauterbrunnen Valley

The Lauterbrunnen Valley

As promised yesterday, a view that I love and will never forget. Unfortunately it never does look like the best view in the world when it is a photo! That cliff face was heartstopping. Big son and I sat on a bench, near the church, in the little pedestrian-only village of Wengen (in the JungfrauContinue Reading

Oh Zurich!

Oh Zurich!

Ok, so I am blogging. My Mother said she’d kill me if I didn’t. We’re in Zurich! Can you believe it? One week ago I was hanging out the washing, with not an inkling that we would be wandering the streets of this heavenly city, on the other side of the world, a week later.Continue Reading
