Since moving to HK I've been to more high teas than I can count on both hands, and they're always a delicious mix of the quintessentially British (scones, carrot cake and cucumber sandwiches) and oriental deliciousness (egg tarts, pork bbq buns and green tea). I recently had the pleasure of...

So yesterday I had a fun afternoon attempting to make my favourite dessert, carrot cake, into a version of cupcakes. Again like the brownies from last week, I'm not the best at making cupcakes. They are probably one of my favourite treats but the idea is always better then the outcome. These...

His delicate, detailed and desirable designs all have that 'princess' factor, which even the most harden androgynous dresser would find near impossible to resist. The collection shown in Paris this week is no exception. A natural colour palette of blush, moss green, soft grey and lavender was...

Here are my stand-out favourites from Armani Privé's 70s meets sci-fi, Christian Dior's big and bold nod to old school couture house glamour, and Chanel's ice-cool, jazz baby collection. Cx Images: Style.com Posted by carina100

Following on from the new 'Carina Covets Cooking' feature on the blog, (we started with carrot cake cupcakes with cream cheese frosting) I'm now doing one of my favourite savoury dishes, Warm Cheese & Chorizo Tarts. These tarts are so quick and easy to make, and the best bit is you can add or...

Or when you suddenly realise that there may still be another slice of that carrot cake in the tin?.... Yeah, that is exactly the feeling I got when I went to re-visit the website of London based design label, Draw in Light. Having not been back to drool over their website since their...

I bake cupcakes and muffins all the time, sometimes chocolate, occasionally carrot cake, and lots of blueberry ones, but no matter what I love to have a recipe to follow, it is kind of like a safety net that reassures me along the way. I have tried the cookbook stand, it never really stays...

If we don't see some of these drop-dead-gorgeous gowns at the Oscars this year I'll eat my new Mulberry bag. I can't remember the last time we saw such a red carpet ready collection. Staring with pretty pastels and elegant creams, the beautiful and delicate collections moves to show stopping...
