Currently reading.....

After mentioning in yesterday's post that I like to curl up in fresh bedding with a good book, I had a few requests asking for my current reading list. Truth be told, I don't have one. I have books. Piles and piles of books. They're generally broken into a few categories - namely, murder, music, people, photography and self-help. And cooking. Always the cooking.

The 700 Nimes Road in the picture above is the photographic account of Elizabeth Taylor's house during her last days (taken with her full permission - this is not TMZ). I love nosying in people's houses and this is no exception. There are some peeks inside on this week's vlog.

Haven't read all of the above yet, but I've picked through most of them. I've moved Grace and Amy to my bedside to make sure I get properly into those ones.

Betty Halbreich was the personal shopper at Bergdorf's for years. Her memoirs are a great insight into the high-end lifestyle of shoppers and the industry in general. This article is a great intro to her if you weren't aware of her previously: vanityfair.com/betty-halbreich

The rock biographies I read just for the laughs. The Dirt by Motley Crue and Tommyland take some beating for the depravity and filth content though.  If that's your thing... ;)

People in business are always a good bet for hints and tips if running your own business is what you do/want to do. The Arianna Huffington one is a tad slow for me, the Aliza Licht one a little 'young' - all worth a quick browse though.

Hidden at the top of this pile is the Marie Kondo Tidying book. It thrills me that one of the best selling books in the UK is a book on tidying. Now all we need is a Dettol candle and I'll be all set.

Annnd a little murder to finish things off. After all, if you can't read murder curled up in bed all cosy, when can you??


  1. Thanks for sharing Caroline. Marie Kondo's book lives up to it's title & will change your life!! x

  2. I'll fight you for your skin care products, but not your books, lol. Marie Kondo is crap I prefer the Iris Apfel and Linda Rodin method.

  3. Hi Caroline.. Can you pls do a TOP10 Beauty products post?? And your top recommends for skin brightening. Thanks­čśś

  4. A dettol candle - roaring with laughter!

  5. I have piles of books waiting to be read, but somehow they just keep growing, no matter how much I read!

    Linda, Libra, Loca: Beauty, Baby and Backpacking

  6. Ooh...a Dettol candle. Genius idea. We need to start a campaign.

  7. Yes please is honestly one of the funniest things I've read written on paper in a long time! I try to hold in my giggles whilst my boyfriend sleeps, but then wake him with a roaring laughter when I can't contain it anymore! Best book of 2015 for me! I hope you enjoy X

  8. Crime thrillers are my absolute thing, I love Peter James, Karin Slaughter, Mel Sherratt & Stuart McBride best. I've a kindle full of books but I keep buying more! All my cash goes on my skin & Kindle! Must do some reading this afternoon ;) Too many great books and not enough time!

  9. I looked up the Elizabeth Taylor book on amazon and was astonished to learn that Catherine Opie is the photographer. Brilliant! I will be ordering it (along with Lisa Eldridge's new book) tomorrow. Thanks for the recommendation.

  10. Thoughts on Scar Tissue ? Anthony Kiedis biography easily my fave for the whole sex drugs and rock n roll story
