Shopping, hunting, gathering and cooking.

As promised photos of our 'loot' from Singapore.

A striped Tee shirt top (I cannot resist stripes) and this one is lovely quality. From Muji.

Best buy was this beautiful dress above. Daughter modelling her LBD with a bit of detailing and difference. She fell in love with it and it had to be hers.

She also bought (at a night market in Changi village), a jade ring like the one above.

And I found a GORGEOUS ring - as the one above (top one - the moonstone orb ring but in silver). I have had to order it as they did not have my size left in stock. It is a range by a Singaporean designer called Carrie K. Absolutely loved her designs... Check her website out HERE. I may have to wait a couple of months for my ring but I am willing to do that.

And just to carry on the shopping theme when we returned to UK this lovely package was waiting for me from a few weeks back. I had ordered a cosy cashmere classic. In the sale. Remember what I say about Brora - the best cashmere in the world in my humble opinion.

Know that I will get a lot of wear out of it so it will be a good value item in the end on a cost per wear basis!

On Saturday the sun shone (you did know that for a while I had brought some very warm sunshine back with me from Australia, didn't you?!!)

We walked along beside the canal keeping our eyes peeled...

For these.......

Gathered many and took them home - into a pan with some chopped apples and later on -

A very tasty blackberry and apple crumble was produced!

Delish. Got to love an English Autumn.......

  14. I love your daughter's dress and she is a real stunner. Look at her heels wow!

    Those berries look delicious and your dessert must have been a hit. It's so pretty over in England across the great pond.
    I received my new cashmere from Land's End and I am very happy with the fit and quality. There is something so sensual about wearing cashmere, it feels so luxe.
    I hope that you will get a lot of enjoyment wearing yours.
