Restaurant-style guacamole

July 04, 2014

0 Comments


If I had my way, I’d eat guacamole every day. With a big bag of salty, lime-drizzled chips. While laying on a beach with a tropical drink next to me. It’s certainly one of the better dips, with creamy, flesh avocados taking the lead. A simple, flavorful guac doesn’t need much: just a quick drizzle of lime, some red onion and a little cilantro are more than enough.



• 1 ripe avocado
• juice of 1 lime
• ½ small red onion, diced finely
• 1 Tbsp. cilantro, diced
•salt to taste

• Slice the avocado in half. Place the blade of your knife into the pit and press, then twist, removing the pit. Slice the avocado flesh long ways then side ways to create scores.
• Twist the avocado halves inside out to release the scores into a bowl. Use a fork and smush the avocado pieces until the reach the consistency you want.
• Stir the red onion and cilantro into the avocado. Sprinkle the lime juice and salt on top and stir to combine.

The Invasion of the Brit Tabloid

October 22, 2020

I just read an article that sounded – to me at least – like “a canary in a coal mine” or an early warning of danger. This piece, written by Joe Pompeo, appeared in the May 2020 issue of Vanity Fair magazine with the title “The British Tabloid Invasion” and a subtitle that read, “How the Daily Mail is conquering American gossip.”

Magical Hermès

October 06, 2020

I think we’re all taken by the incredible mystique of the famous French fashion house, Hermès that has been with us for two centuries and is still owned and operated by the same family. From its beginnings in fine equestrian leather goods, they are – in the tumultuous year 2020 – best known for their handbags and many other items.

My image of Hermès has always been rarified products at equally rarified prices so imagine my surprise when I recently received a very stylish publication of theirs in the mail.

We use Italian lingerie sizing  for our bodywear and items tend to run small.

Because of the body-hugging nature of the fabric and our body conscious fit most women prefer to wear our layering tops as under-layers. If you are inclined to wear them on their own we suggest you size up. Please contact us. We're happy to help you get it right.
