This month the Victoria & Albert Museum will be showing "Undressed:  A Brief History of Underwear".   This exhibition details underwear design from the 18th century up to today.  Over 200 objects will be displayed alongside advertising material, photography and film.    I can't wait to see this.

Off to see the Waves


With Storm Kate subsiding early this morning, we thought we would take a trip to Portland to watch the waves followed by a delicious crab sandwich at the Lobster Pot and then off to Chessil Beach for more wave watching.

Isabella Rossellini Returns to Lancome


So pleased to hear that one of all-time favourites, Isabella Rossellini, is returning to Lancome at the age of 63.   Isabella first joined the brand in 1983 and worked with them for 14 years and was the "first-ever face" of the Company.

Tried to walk the excess chocolate off this afternoon.   A tad blustery but at least it was sunny.
