Best from Boden Summer 2011–10 of the top picks.


Boden is one of those companies that really sparkles when the sun comes out – so much use of colour everywhere with huge temptation to pick up something pretty, girly and flirty to pack in your suitcase.  Of course there are the sales (everywhere right now) but it’s hard not to take a look at the new collection from Boden for summer and go for a brighter than bright.  Even if you’re not off somewhere hot just yet grab these right now – inevitably from Boden they won’t be around for very long.  Some are already packed up and ready to go and they won’t be replaced.

Just back from a trip to Paris and the south coast of England which, despite the coolness and rain did nothing do dampen a superb performance of Die Meistersinger at Glyndebourne.  This one is well worth seeing if you can catch it and ignore the anti-Wagnerites who may try and put you off.  This is magical stuff.  I would go again today if I could………….see you there next year perhaps.  Look out for me – I’ll be the one with the best picnic………………………..
