Send & Receive


This week was quite a hectic one with not one but two interviews to prepare for. Cue lots of running around London, ransacking my wardrobe in search of a good outfit and just visualising the large glass of wine waiting for me at the end of it. So it was a nice surprise when I saw a little handwritten envelope waiting for me on the doormat postmarked Nashville, TN. My Dad shouted up, ‘Kate- there’s something from America for you here!’

Makeover Time – Laura Mercier


On Friday I decided I was stuck in a rut makeup-wise and hot-footed it to the beauty counter at Liberty. As part of their Brushes with Greatness event they are  holding makeover sessions with a whole host of talented makeup artists this month, so I booked in with  Chris Howells from  Laura Mercier for a day-look overhaul.

I usually have about three books on the go– one in my handbag for the train, one for weekends, and one to read in the bath. Some of the latter have been known to get covered in bubbles but it’s worth it. Here’s what’s been in my book pile this month:

Late to the Party: Girls


Since getting back to the UK after 7 months away I’ve been pretty out of the loop on most things. I only just got Twitter. I only saw one and a half episodes of Broadchurch.

Food Lover: a diet-sceptic’s trial of the 5:2


First of all, let’s be clear: I am anti-diet and proud of it. The words ‘life’s too short and diets are for losers’ have been known to come out of my mouth. Too many of my naturally beautiful female contemporaries are listening when the media dictates women’s shape. I despise calorie counting and denying oneself life’s pleasures: live for the moment! Be proud of how you are! These are my mantras.

However, last week I realised I could no longer fit into my work trousers.

Summer Fitness: the Killer Hill Challenge


Around where I live we’re lucky enough to have miles and miles of rolling hills which, on sunny days like these at least, rival the South of France. So instead of joining the gym this Summer (this unpaid intern’s putting the money saved towards treats like these) I’m dusting off my neglected road bike and hitting the pedals. Continue reading
