Eating…

Dirt

If you haven’t already visited Dirt on Chillingham Road, Heaton, it’s a must. A super stylish, clean eating hang out. I love good food, but even more so when its freshly prepared, natural and supports the local community. The mission of Dirt is simple…“We all have two homes – our planet and our body, nurture both to become healthier, stronger and more connected”. The owners believe in sustainability and are mindful of every choice they make. They think globally and act locally, from coffee roasters to farmers, working hard to build a community of local suppliers so you can be assured of quality. My favourite treat for a quick afternoon pick-me-up is the raw brownie. Vegan and absolutely delicious, it is sweetened purely with dates and is rich and indulgent. All cakes are handmade by Jessica (the founder) and you will most likely be greeted by her at the counter if you pop in.

Loving…

Clarins

At this time of year, I’m ready for a natural healthy glow and the perfect product for this is Clarins’ Golden Glow Booster. A magic formula that you can tailor to your desired level of colour, by adding 1 -3 drops to your favourite day or night cream. It creates a hydrating, anti-ageing and firming cream, with the added benefit of a natural looking, radiant glow. On counter, £27.

Drinking…

As the days get longer and the weeks get warmer, I love nothing more than to pull back the doors to the garden, entertain friends and bring a sense of summer to the menu. My favourite drink of the moment is a ‘Bonito’, a mix of champagne, watermelon liqueur and cucumber syrup with a dash of soda. Garnish with basil leaves, lemon juice, a cucumber slice and a water melon stick for the most refreshing summer cocktail.

Travelling…

la granja biza

My top pick for a summer getaway, whether it be a long weekend or a midweek break has to be ‘The Farmhouse’ in Ibiza. Effortlessly stylish, laid back but elegant. The dark but interesting interiors create an unusual atmosphere, and in contrast to the beautiful old stone buildings, are ideal for exploring. Soft, neutral linens and rustic but luxurious bathrooms create the perfect balance for an authentic Ibiza vibe. With only five rooms available, the feeling is intimate but relaxed, the service impeccable. The only problem is you don’t want to leave the hotel to explore the island!

Wearing…

Cos dress

I am always on the look out for that perfect outfit, that I can dress up or down. Not always an easy find, however I picked out this navy silk dress from Cos. Unexpected details such as the knitted neckline, elasticated grosgrain straps, subtle A line fit and discreet side-seam pockets, create a stylish but classic look. Dress up with nude killer heels, oversized clutch and layered jewellery for that special occasion, or throw on a pair of white sneakers and tie your hair back for a casual everyday look. £125, cos.com

Styling…

Cove vase

With new deliveries arriving at TUTTI this month, I can’t help but pick out my favourite pieces to take home and style. I’m a little obsessed with navy at the moment, an easy neutral colour, that looks great paired with light grey tones. So it had to be a few pieces from the Harbour collection. The navy dock leather table/stool, has so many uses and is ideal to swap between rooms when needed. The shore and cove vases look perfect styled alongside, and all you need to add is a pop of greenery from the garden for texture.
