I think I speak for the whole country when I say thank the Lord for the sun this week. After a devastating start to the week with events in Manchester, I think everyone spent the beginning of the week feeling sad and slightly down. I suffer from anxiety and any sort of sad news can work as a trigger.
I relax by watching gardening programs (I know!) I have a particular soft spot for Monty Don, unfortunately, I didn’t make it to the Royal Chelsea Flower Show this year but I did watch it on catch up and its given me some great ideas for a little garden redesign.
I spent some time in London at press days this week mostly looking ahead to Autumn Winter launches. As a sneak peak of what’s to come for Autumn check this beautiful burgundy clutch from Jigsaw and silk scarf from Marks and Spencer.
Friday was a scorcher of a day in Brighton, I spent the morning meeting with fellow Brighton influencers Style Memos, Hunt Continues, and Natalie Courtois we ate brunch in Mange Tout which was so lip-smackingly good I’m surprised I was able to hold a conversation.
I also walked by the sea and popped into The Grand Brighton to check out its event rooms. Have you been to the newly refurbished Victoria Terrace recently? It’s a beautiful Victorian conservatory overlooking the sea, such a beautiful place, I think I will be back very soon.
