Fashion: A fruity little number

Welcome in the autumn with the latest range from English perfumier Jo Malone. Blackberry & Bay is a tart but sweet scent redolent of afternoons spent gorging on fruit from the hedgerows and wiping your hands on your woollens.

3. "A little caviar and a peach" for breakfast. Bit far from the GCSES results, isn't it?

4. Still trying to get through me Chinese strong spare ribs prawn balls were a bit ropey but it's all about the curry sauce and chips for me
