While I've been away a tent has been erected in the living room. Made from sheets, towels and string it's housed Phin and mini complete with soft furnishings and a makeshift bed. These two are very proud of their new residence. It's something my brothers and I did when our parents went away and I love that my kids get the same enjoyment from doing there's.

But we also fell in love with the homewares available. And only wished they shipped to the Uk. One of these was Serena & Lily who have an easy beach vibe that would be perfect for Ibiza.

Jenny had her two dresses designed personally by Fransisco Costa from Calvin Klein. A blush pink three quarter hour glass silhouette for the ceremony and an apricot slip dress for the lunch. It was definitely high fashion but at the same time low key - I was seated with the gorgeous Rag and Bone boys to one side and the charming Kenneth Cole on the other we were entertained by a jazz band in the woods and an al fresco barbecue.

It was the first time there for both of us and we had a blast.
We stayed at a gorgeous hotel called the Baker House 1660 in East Hampton.
And we spent a lot of time driving between South and East Hampton (great for shopping) as well as our favourite Amagansett and the more rustic Montauk.
Two places that we would highly recommend to eat were The Crow's Nest in Montauk - where you sit outside overlooking a lake under twinkle lights and eating kale chips and risotto. While the Hampton's Chutney company is one of the best take out Dosa's we've had the pleasure of eating. And not just the normal potato style but also with goats cheese, tomatoes and kalamata olives. Thanks to my dear friend Kate for those two fantastic recommendations!
