Petra, Jordan - February 2014

I travelled to Petra in Jordan in February 2014. I like this photo for its sense of mystery, design and graduated colours.

New York

I travelled to New York for just under a week in May 2015.  New York is certainly a place with its individual areas, think cultural and ethnic focused areas and a melting pot of ambition and activity.

Everyone there seems to walk a lot everywhere so if you have never been I recommend you travel there with at least a pair of comfortable flat shoes.  And yes honestly you will gaze in awe in midst of Manhattan at the skyscrapers.

I'll take Manhattan! May, 2015

Dear blog, I neglected you and a few other aspects of my life. I have had what I call a turbulent period recently which has slowly come to an end like a fabric which was rough and garish now faded to a soft colour and smoothed by the elements.

I hope to update you with some of my recent travels and discoveries.

Ana Kras- Shy gestures video on Vimeo

Dear blog and my blog readers,

Sorry for not writing for a while, there were some upheavals in my life and I am now feeling in a better position to write, read and discover more.

& Other Stories yellow silk shirt
As some of you know I have an obsession with silk shirts, elegant and timeless my sartorial dream is to possess in all shades. I revisited a video about Ana Kras which at that time had me wanting that silk shirt she is wearing in the image above. I came across this one in London at the & Other Stories shop and thought about it before making the decision, it  not as muted as Ana's one, however it is not too bright, and is a perfect pop of colour.

Apricot and almond cake
Thinking of sunny things I made this cake recently with medlars instead of apricots (as apricots are not in season) an it went down well. You can find this recipe on Diana Henry's website.

It is a beautifully sunny day in Surrey in the UK. Enjoy the rest of your Sunday.
