Outlander: Ultimate Autumn TV

Hailed ‘the feminist Game of Thrones’ I’ve had my eye on fantasy period drama Outlander since it came out in 2014. Based on the bestselling historic novels by author Diana Gabaldon it’s been nominated for several Emmy’s and a Golden Globe but since it was only available on Amazon Video and I didn’t have a subscription I never really got […] Read more…

Things To Do This Bank Holiday

If you are like me you probably have plans for the bank holiday ( wedding + a family day at a country fair) but the bonus of an extra day means you are feeling breezy about them, they feel like ‘loose plans’ and the weekend still has that feeling of possibility. Maybe you can fit […] Read more…

Period Inspiration: Netflix’s ‘Anne With An E’

There’s nothing that states ‘required viewing’ for me than when a new TV series is accompanied by swoon-worthy interiors and new Netflix show ‘Anne with an E’ (a re-boot of the iconic Anne of Green Gables) is a living breathing evocation of everyones favourite modern crafted brands – it’s basically Restoration Hardware meets Farrow and Ball by way […] Read more…

This season you can find elegant linocut floral accessories and embroidered cushions amongst other beauties – take a look at their homeware here. Best of all Sainsbury’s do Halloween really well.

Must Watch New TV : The Living and The Dead

Last week I began watching a fairly under the radar spooky new BBC show The Living and The Dead – and by watching I mean hiding behind my summer blanket in a cold sweat. I happened upon a double page in a weekend magazine at my in-laws on Sunday in which an eccentric looking Victorian cast […] Read more…

Based on life in the French Court during Louis XIV’s reign and his strategy for strengthening his hold on the country by the moving of political stronghold from Paris to the then tiny village of Versailles. The show’s luscious production reportedly cost 20 million, was partly shot in shot in the staterooms, bedrooms and gardens […] Read more…

A Weekend in the Hamptons!

Exactly one month ago, my little family and I set sail for our first big summer holiday to New York and the Hamptons! Visiting the Hamptons has always been a dream of mine [even before the Kardashian’s graced it with their presence]. Historically the summer playgrounds for many American presidents and first ladies – Jackie […] Read more…

Must Watch: Vikings

I have just finished watching a marathon of Love Film’s first exclusive acquisition, the gripping Vikings, a historical action drama from the US History Channel. All nine episodes were released at once – in keeping with other streaming services like Netflix who are tapping into the advantages of simultaneous release to keep viewers engaged. I for one know I […] Read more…
