My top 5 Message t-shirts of this season

My top 5 Message t-shirts of this season

Alice, who I photographed last week, wears the “Females of the future” t-shirt from Topshop I got for Mila last time I was in London. Mila is getting at the age where she is borrowing more and more from my wardrobe and personally, I don’t feel ready to hang out my Converse, Stan Smith or cool sweatshirts anytime soon so size (and stains!) permitting, we are starting to get a bit of crossover in the fashion department. Since I did a round-up of my favourite message sweatshirts last week, I thought I would treat you with my current favourite message t-shirts ;-)

From Muji, I got these soft washed duvets for all the single beds in our home. Five years ago, I had bought an organic white duvet cover from Muji for Mila’s bedroom and at the time, I wish I had bought more because the cotton had a really nice texture that felt like linen. I don’t think these are organic but they still have a really nice texture to them. Made.com has also some nice stonewashed linens. I recently bought this Brisa stonewashed linen bed set in pure white for our home in France but I haven’t unpacked it yet. For our bedroom and the bedroom in the loft conversion, I ordered the Savoy duvet cover in white. I had …

How to style your dining table for Easter

I’ve never really decorated a table for Easter before but then I saw these eggs in a vase on Pinterest and it inspired me to make my own ‘pastel’ version with left-over paint I had and use my beautiful tableware designed by Sophie Conran for Portmeirion. It was really easy to do and turned out to be very pretty too so I’m really pleased with the whole look of our Easter table. I also put together a super easy family menu which you will have no problem replicating. STARTER: AVOCADO ON TOAST, POACHED EGG & ASPARAGUS WRAPPED IN PARMA HAM Since I’m on my 5th week of #Iquitsugar (refined sugars) and I’m foodie at heart, it’s important I treat myself to food that feels hearty and tasty and I absolutely loved this “entrée” which I served on Sophie Conran for Portmeirion bistro plates.A couple of tips for you…Cooking your asparagus with a spoon of baking soda will keep them green and the best way to make poached eggs is to add white vinegar to your boiling …
