A visit to London












I have just returned from a visit to London, and have spent some very special time with my wonderful mom. We had a great few days, and managed to fit in some really great visits. The photo's are not so great but they are as follows.....the first 2 are of a Manon Gignoux exhibition at Egg,I just adore this ladys wonderful work, the second two are the windows of Cabbages and Roses, and last but not least Vivianne Westwoods creation for 'Sex in the City' Carrie's wedding dress. Thanks mom I had the most fantastic time, I love you so much xxx

2 of my all time favourites. Those Manon Gignoux pieces have my name all over them and Cabages and Roses windows are always THE BEST Christina Strutt is the best stylist I have ever met. I am due a visit to London and will be making a bee line for both these places.

Today is my birthday and you are cordially invited to my party down by the river. Wear loose fitting clothes and don't drive due to the excessive amounts of food and champagne that is on offer.
