Saturday: meetings with Rachel Galley & packing for Crufts


Vans hoody here.

Hello folks! What a miserable weekend it's been so far... I can't wait to get away for a few days, even if it's only to Birmingham for work. I've just started packing my new Rab duffle bag for our 4 nights away. It was reduced by 50% last weekend and I happened to stumble across the last black one so I bought it because I don't actually have a suitcase for Thailand. I was unsure whether to go for a bag or an actual suitcase with wheels but for £55 I decided to go for it as I knew it was good quality and a brand I trusted. If you're interested, you can view it here. I'll let you know how it goes though, as I'm just so used to using a suitcase and I'm hoping it doesn't annoy me that everything will be in one big compartment, rather than split into two...

This morning I met with Rachel Galley for coffee, or shall I say a hot chocolate. I'm doing a photoshoot with her in a few weeks time, which I am super excited about. Her jewellery pieces are simply stunning and I cannot wait to wear it all - what a talent, I feel so honoured to be working with her on her new collection. I will most definitely be sharing the photos with you guys because of course I will want to remember such an amazing experience but for now you will have to wait, as the shoot isn't for another week yet! Anyway, tonight I think I will make Jamie Oliver's speedy spinach curry with paneer cheese. We haven't had it in so long and I just fancied it, even though we had a delicious Indian takeaway from the British Raj last night. At the moment I am obsessed with roasted cauliflower, drizzled in olive oil and sprinkle with paprika. It's delicious, filling and healthy! What's not to love? I'll probably make a little portion of that to go on the side rather than having rice. What are your plans? I feel like the best thing to do on days like today is put some comfy clothes on and stick a good film on. Enjoy the weekend and I will probably speak with you tomorrow, L.
