The beautiful Suffolk coast

Just got back from the beautiful Suffolk coast which is about 2 1/2 hours by car from London so a great seaside weekend getaway! We stayed at the Brudenell Hotel in Aldeburgh, a nice hotel right on the sea front with a very good restaurant ( They have a sister hotel, the White Lion (, a couple of meters further down the seaside promenade, which is maybe more cozy but has smaller rooms so not so great if you have to share the room with a baby...

I have always been a big fan of black cabs (which I tend to refer to jokingly as the "black bus") but have become even more so since having a baby with pram in tow. There is no need for a car seat. You can simply push the pram into the cab, fix the break and off it goes. The only problem until recently was that very often when I wanted a black cab there was none to be found. This was until I had downloaded the Hailo app.

Christian Louboutin at the London Design Museum

The Baby and I went to the Christian Louboutin exhibition at the London Design Museum today. After some queueing in the rain (unfortunately others had the same idea on this rainy bank holiday), we finally made it into the exhibition. The exhibition is set up like a big Louboutin boutique with a main centre stage display of Louboutin's beautiful theatrical red-soled designs. My favourite shoe was "Black Tie", a black sandal with a Swarovski-studded black tie down the instep of the foot. The exhibition tells Louboutin's journey from an actor to a garden landscape designer and finally to a world famous shoe designer and explores Louboutin's inspiration (mainly through his travels), the design process and the construction and production of the shoe. Apparently Louboutin's fascination with high heels was awoken when he saw in a museum a sign of a red crossed-out stiletto, forbidding access in high heels.
