here in the Torygraph

Do these people actually get PAID to namedrop their business and their friends' businesses? Is there any POINT to this article?

Or am I just jealous?

Have never looked at The Telegraph before - is it always that bad, Activate?

Put laptop down after the 'leafier part' of London and Farrow & Ball references, so I could vomit more easily.

Yes, it's lazy journalism, even more rubbish than the average.

Yy to 'the leafier part' - what's that then, Saint James' Park? Highgate Cemetery?

When I opened the article, it was plastered over with a big advert for some Dior perfume. It took ages for me to get rid of, and really got me in the mood for her to slip up and mention room scent! grin

I was ROFL laughing at her disdain for Christmas tree and traditional decorations, juxtaposed with the massively cliche'd use of "concoct". Ahem, who's being unoriginal here?

She also doesn't like: "the idea of smoked salmon, or worse still champagne, for breakfast."

A lot she doesn't like! It's a pity she failed to notice the one thing she really ought not to like: "I pull it all together on the day." What's your husband and supposed business partner doing, sweetie?

'I pull it all together on the day' - wtf is that supposed to even mean?

She just happens to find some big poncey flowers and some expensive wrapping paper lying around?

And that green rug is revolting!

At least she didn't say anything was "to die for"!
