Who Wears ALLSAINTS: Jacqui Ainsley.


So you may, or may not know, that Jacqui Ainsley is the new lady friend of filmmaker and former Mr Madonna, Guy Ritchie. Jacqui playfully said goodbye to Mr Ritchie yesterday lunchtime wearing the AllSaints Deimos Dress and Sand Heels; while he sported an Andy Pandy pair of PJ’s!

BAFTA TV Awards: The Red Carpet.


I went to the 2010 BAFTA TV Awards on Sunday as a reporter for AllSaints. I headed down to the red carpet ready for all the stars of the small screen to arrive. Here’s what happened….

Ah the lovely Brian Cox looked very dashing in a Paul Smith suit.

We got a bit of a shock when this lady turned up! Fashion faux-pas?

The Ivy Restaurant And Bar – Round Two.


It’s my birthday tomorrow and James took me to The Ivy at the weekend to celebrate. We went this time last year; so we’ve now decided to make it a bit of an annual event for my birthday. (This time it took 8 weeks of desperately trying to get dinner reservations! AND we booked 2 months in advance! CRAZY). We had the most amazing meal, I just had to share!

To start I had the Buffalo mozzarella with foccacia, crushed broad bean pesto and vine tomatoes. While James had the grilled squid, chorizo and parsley salad. For mains I had Cornish lamb with sweetbreads & broad bean fricassée. I have to say, the lamb is served pink – this is the most amazing lamb I’ve ever ever aten. Absolutely amazing. I might also add, until I went back onto The Ivy website, I believed my lamb was served on a bed of Fois Gras… I just googled ‘sweetbreads’ and found this definition on Wiki. MENTAL. James had a rib eye steak, which has to be the biggest steak I’ve ever seen! It was huuuuuge! And beyond tasty! This came with a side of fries.

We then had an espresso each before squaring up the bill… Then we moved into The Ivy bar and had a round of cocktails.

Absolutely 5 star food with 5 star service. Brilliant. I can’t wait to go again next year! See you then The Ivy!

SATC2 Is Coming.


…I think I’m actually about to burst. I’m so bored of tightly closing my eyes and sticking my fingers in my ears when anything slightly SATC related comes up on the TV, in conversation or in magazines. I’m DESPERATE to just see it now!

Best thing is, I haven’t got a clue what happens! Thanks to my dutiful and dedicated self of course. (Massive lie to self, I know they end up in the desert? And I know Aiden makes an appearance – SHOCK HORROR indeed. That’s definitely all I know though).

BEYOND EXCITED MUCH?

I Love You, Mulberry.


Look at this beautiful Mulberry (carrier) bag that landed on my desk on Friday afternoon. I was easily beyond ECSTATIC.

I, very quickly, unloaded all my junk from my thrifty AllSaints Kensington tote and carefully placed it all into the compartments in my new Mulberry Bayswater. I’ve never smelt leather like it – absolutely amazing!

So without further a-do, allow me to introduce… MULBERS.

Mulberry Bayswater, Oak Natural Leather, £595.
