Here's first of a series that I shall be showing you in the coming days. It's hit me once again, how connected we all are: we might not be able to travel to Japan, or to Libya, for example, but we're not powerless to help. We can donate amounts of money that don't detract from our lives in...

Dot keeps trying to get me to watch Wimbledon with him, and my attention was diverted with tweets about Christopher Kane's 2011 resort collection, which got me so freakin' inspired I started playing around in photoshop some MORE. I'm grabbing the opportunity of him talking on the phone to...

SnappyLifeStyle - and I were moving through the crowds of Covent Garden, Trafalgar Square, at a pretty, well, snappy pace, on our way to Snap some Pics at the Mall, the day before the Royal Wedding. I'm not sure who spotted Loli first, sitting on the wall, smoking and smoldering. But we both...

Thinking about how Truman Capote wrote the Holly Golightly character for his sad tragic friend Marilyn Monroe, and how differently the character became when inhabited by Audrey Hepburn. Which got me started thinking, before I went to sleep last night, about that difference between the Good...

Dot about it and he's like, Jill, you told me already. 'But I didn't tell you about the pork bellies.' 'You told me about the pork bellies.' But they way they paired them with those amazing langoustines, the saltiness of the seafood against the meltingly sweet pork, and that crackling on top...

" I did go, it turns out, with the Big Dot: he's such a mercurial creature, after denouncing the whole thing as being for girls, he couldn't resist the urge - since we live in South Ken - to go walkabout. I have so many more images to share but yesterday I did such a blitz that if you're here...

Not just the person, the oh so Coco (who I keep picturing as Audrey Tautou: it's making me want to see the film again). The brand. As a concept. The clothes. The colours of the nail varnish, for goodness sake! Even the taste and texture of those little crab canapes.. or the beautiful jackets...

I wish I could show you the whole look: I loved the dotted white top with tan shorts. That is so what I wish I could wear if it would just ACT LIKE JUNE. 'It's raining again!' Mr. Do just said. 'Not much of a summer, is it, little cat?' (he is literally talking to the cat). Then a lovely...

Dot: and from a great distance, at that. Probably somewhere in the Carribean.. not sure). Weird coincidence, tho: just as I found the photo, I also found in my inbox, an invite from my lovely friends Lucy (Snippets of Shiny Thoughts) and Carrie (WishWishWish) - they're doing a wonderful Uni...

And I always say Audrey Hepburn, and Jackie Kennedy (in no particular order) but I've realised, that often my strongest influences are my friends. So I started going back thru my archives: I don't shoot Nat every time we meet (that day last week, for example, I didn't have my camera with...
