I can officially state that the best madeleine I've ever had was at the Ritz Paris – a little buttery cake of pure heaven and the lemon cake was by far my favourite. Champagne (thank you dearest Ashleigh!), lemon cake and wonderful company – yes please! Top marks for serving clotted cream...

I opted for the champagne Afternoon Tea which consisted of the chicest finger sandwiches known to Milla: smoked salmon, chicken and fois gras (evil but oh so delicious), an array of anti-bikini desserts, a pot of tea (sencha, of course) and a glass of Laurent Perrier Brut. I actually...

Bar 8 is also pretty cool. Definitely one of my favourite spots in Paris. If you like good living and beautiful aesthetics, the Mandarin Oriental will not disappoint. Now I just need to stay there. Yes, the eternal optimist! Camélia Mandarin Oriental 251 Rue Saint-Honoré 75001...

Milla in Shropshire? I think not. The last time I was at the Shangri-La was back in October and I thought the décor was nice but they have pulled out all the stops for Christmas. 153 photographs in one afternoon – I'll add some additional images to my Facebook page at some point. I feel...

My then-fiancé-now-husband went look at the hotel and meet with the sales team whilst on a business trip in Paris, as we were still living in London at the time. He called me immediately after and raved that I would love it. As I walked through the gates a few months later with the fountain...

the things I like most about my life in Paris is that I'm constantly discovering. Of course I have my favourite place for tea, lunch and so on, but I'm keen to discover more about the city I call home. When a friend suggested the Mini Palais for lunch, I have to admit I had to Google it....

I'm not a big fan of Emmanuelle Alt's style or her leadership of Vogue Paris, but until I saw her in the flesh last night, I never realised just how beautiful she is. There we were, two girls en route to Ralph Lauren, when who should appear but Madame Alt surrounded by Mademoiselle Agnès,...

Now that summer has finally arrived in Paris, my husband and I decided to head to Versailles. My husband hadn't been there for over 30 years and for me, it had been about 6 years. I packed water and some fresh fruit for our road-trip, only to discover that the drive was only 26 minutes long....

A trip to ultra sleek Un Dimanche à Paris in the fabulous Saint Germain district further cements my view that people who dislike chocolate are complete weirdos. Hidden in a little courtyard, it would be easy to miss this shop-bar-resto combination, which would be a major failing on your part....

This spring Ritz Paris's Bar Hemingway is taking up residency at The Connaught Bar in Mayfair, London from April 7-13, 2014. Top mixologists, Colin Field of Bar Heminway (twice voted best barman by Forbes magazine) and Agostino Perrone will create a specialized drink menus in each of their own...
