Brora Cashmere Blanket brora cashmere booties
Every time we have friends and family visiting us from the States I take them to Brora— the ‘shop-supreme’ for famous Scottish Cashmere. It is just one of those shops everyone loves. A v-neck jumper for my husband, a button-up cardigan for my aunt, their cozy cashmere blankets for my mom, gloves and scarf for my sister, hats for my brothers, baby blankets for new babies, etc. etc.

Brora’s aim is to give classic Scottish cashmere a contemporary twist. You can literally get any style of jumper in just about any color.

My favorite section in Brora? The baby and kid’s lines. (You’re never too young for a bit of cashmere)…

The stripy hooded jumpers for kids are the best; they’re cute, cozy and great-fitting. My son has worn the same jumper for the past 2 years (I just rolled the sleeves up a bit in the beginning), and the quality has remained — I can’t tell you how many times I have hand-washed that jumper and it always dries looking as good as new!

Brora also makes the most beautiful baby cardigans and leggings, hats and mittens and baby blankets. The entire range of baby and kids’ cashmere will make your heart melt, and will keep your kiddies cozy all year long. If you’ve experienced a British summer, you’ll know that cashmere isn’t just a winter necessity! 🙂

Paddington Street Gardens and Playground
The playground in Paddington Street Gardens is one of my favourites in Central London.  I love that it's tucked away off the beaten path in Marylebone, slightly hidden unless you know it's there. It means that it never usually gets too crowded, and you get the sense that all the kids there are from the ...

I just got back from a lunch date with a girlfriend... We drank wine, ate mussels and squid, felt very stylish and enjoyed ourselves immensely... even WITH the kids!  (That never happens). We went to Villandry, the gorgeous gourmet food-shop and restaurant on Great Portland Street in central London. Stylish décor, buzzing ambience, great food, ...
