My Little Black Book – London Edition

_DSC7967My favourite shops, hotels, bars and restaurants, in the city where I live and work.

This is a great little spot from breakfast right through until dinner and I often come here when I have a day of back to back meetings.

As my favourite department store in London and the leader in fashion and beauty, Harvey Nichols was the natural choice when it came to launching our make up range and sculpting bar. It’s such a beautiful store and I love to visit before an event or dinner to have my make-up done by one of our amazing counter staff. For a free consultation call 02072355000 and book in with one of our very own sculpting and skincare experts!

A relatively new addition, The Ivy in Chelsea is the perfect summer spot and  a stones throw from Rodial HQ. You can’t beat a breakfast here when the sun is shining.

Everything about Josh Wood’s Lansdowne Atelier is perfect, from the hairdressers and stylists, down to the lighting. I like to get a cut with Josh every six weeks and see Miguel Martin Perez for a Gloss Treatment.

It’s an obvious one for London, but Shoreditch House is always a great location to meet up with friends, whether it’s hanging out by the pool by day, or sharing a club steak by night in the rooftop restaurant.

My good friend and jean queen Donna Ida now has three London boutiques, but her flagship store is still my favourite. Each shop features a denim clinic where customers can book in for a one-to-one appointment with a style advisor to find their perfect jeans , which is a great idea when there is so much choice!

The Five Alls, Cotswolds                                                 www.thefiveallsfilkins.co.uk

Not technically London, but this Cotswolds pub is the perfect hideaway after a hectic week in the city. I have a home nearby and love to head here on a sunday with my husband and two sons for a long lunch, they do the best steamed cod with bok choi, ginger and glass noodles.
