– Astie with his Rebel-Kitchen favourites –
There must come a time when you have to give in to little one’s requests for a treat, something chocolatey, a smooth banana milkshake, treats that I have held off showing Astor until I had to (i.e. until his friends had said treats and I would feel like a mean mummy if I denied him…)
Finding a ‘healthy’ treat is quite a task, so discovering Rebel-Kitchen’s smooth coconut milk drinks with all natural ingredients was a very welcome addition to our lives. The wonderful thing about Rebel-Kitchen is that Astor certainly feels as though he’s having a complete treat (which he is), while I am not sitting back watching in horror thinking of all of the additives and nasties that are heading into my little guy’s body – Rebel Kitchen pride themselves on being the most healthy option there is, while still allowing for naturally sourced no-additive ingredients such as chocolate
Perfectly sized portions for little ones and slightly larger options for when you need a treat too – my personal favourite being the delicious Matcha creation
– With beautiful Olga Vilshenko –
On Friday evening I co-hosted an exquisite event with Olga Vilsenko at the recently revamped Cafe Royal
Olga Vilshenko is one of the most talented, humble designers and this was an opportunity for London’s fashion elite to meet the visionary behind her label, Vilshenko
– With Paula Goldstein, DJ for the night, and Bianca Fincham, Director of Rainbowwave PR –
With collections inspired by her Russian heritage, I cannot think of another designer who is creating collections with her aesthetic, you truly have to experience the peices first hand to realise the work behind the designs and the expertly chosen fabrics
Vilshenko is a name that will be a major force in the industry in the very near future…
A heavenly honeymoon called for heavenly swimwear and Mara Hoffman was my first call… The colours! The shapes! The effects!
While searching for a little something to thank a friend for something wonderful that she did for me this week, I came across these darling bracelets by Goodey2ShoesLondon
There are a number of these fun brands around, but there’s something a little special about these ones, especially when stacked with so many variations…
I bought these at Salt on Walton Street in London’s Knightsbridge, the brand can be found under their name on Instagram
Last night I hosted a super chic event at London’s revamped Café Royal (more on this next week), without question wearing divine Vilshenko and of course needing to ensure my hair was as flawless as my surroundings
I was late to Blo by Real Hair, not ideal, but the team made me feel utterly at ease and the genius stylist Bobby who blowdried my hair stayed late on a Friday in order for me to be ready to host my beautiful event – I still cannot believe his kindness in changing his plans at such short notice! But you can tell that the entire team at Blo are genuinely sweet and the family atmosphere can be seen just by watching how they all interact
Apart from the wonderful, relaxing, sleek salon surroundings, in just over half and hour, my hair had been blown out, rollered and let loose in a cascade of soft waves; exactly what I had asked for
I was late, I was almost late for my event, but due to how relaxed the team made me feel and how professional the entire experience was, I didn’t feel at all stressed when leaving and actually made it to my event with minutes to spare…the power of stress being removed from the body!

I am back from the most blissful honeymoon and next week shall be sharing all news and images…
Please excuse me for not posting in over two weeks, but a honeymoon is a honeymoon and I wanted to give every moment to my new husband – and Astor, he was of course with us and had the most wonderful time!
Very much looking forward to a full return next week.
Much love, Pippa x
