I love Paris in the winter...

...which is fortunate, because if it's anything like it is here at the moment it will be very wintry indeed. Last night I slept with the following:

1. pyjamas
2. socks
3. a cardi
4. 3 duvets
5. 2 quilts
6. an eiderdown
7. a hot water bottle
8. the heating on

And I STILL woke up feeling cold.

Anyway enough of this complaining: I'M GOING TO PARIS!!! This is the apartment we are renting:

I picked it for the two big windows, those oh-so-French hexagonal floor tiles (what is the name for these?) and the pretty wooden sideboard...

...oh, and for the location, location, location, bien sur: slap-bang in the middle of the Marais, the chic-yet-bohemian district that is home to the gay quarter and the Jewish quarter (the Rue des Rosiers, packed with falafel shops, is particularly handy for us vegans).

We'll be on the tres jolie Rue des Blancs Manteaux:

In other news, plans for the Lewes swish at Pelham House are continuing apace. We can now confirm that we will have a gorgeous 'Pamper Zone', where you can have a manicure, pedicure or massage when you've swapped till you've dropped! As an early Christmas present to all our customers, we've also got a 3 for 2 offer on tickets - why not book now at and make it a girly day out?

My Swish continues to garner media attention: yesterday I was interviewed by a lovely lady from the Daily Mirror. She will be featuring My Swish, along with's Lucy Shea, in an article in Monday's paper! Don't forget to buy your copy...


  1. I have read so many articles or reviews on the topic of the blogger lovers but this article is
    actually a good paragraph, keep it up.

  2. I know this if off topic but I'm looking into starting my own blog and was wondering what all is needed to get set up? I'm
    assuming having a blog like yours would cost a pretty penny?
    I'm not very web smart so I'm not 100% sure. Any recommendations or advice would be greatly appreciated. Many thanks
