Loving London

I just spent a few days in London at the gorgeous Berkeley Hotel.  I love seeing my friends and family there and always leave wanting more. 

First stop, Daniel Hersheson at Harvey Nichols to get my hair and nails done.  No, this is not me but isn't it gorgeous. One of my granddaughters always wears feathers in her hair so I know she will love this.

Drinks at the Blue Bar at the Berkeley Hotel is the way to start any evening.

Dinner at Sake No Hana for the best sushi ever.

I went to the V&A to see the current exhibitions which were just okay.   The one I am most looking forward to will be in April so I hope to come back to see the Italian Fashion exhibition.

Richard Burton once said that in the nine months Elizabeth Taylor spent in Rome filming Cleopatra, she learned just one word of Italian: "Bulgari", the jewellers.

Always on my mind is French Vintage Home so going to Portobello Road was in order. I love this painting from

A stop at Ottolenghi in Islington for some delicious takeaway for the plane ride back to France.

Thank you London, I had a wonderful time.

A Bientôt
