Fashion for a good cause? Yes please. Tusk Trust's British Designers Charity Sale gave me reason to smile yesterday. I stumbled across sexy scarves ala animal prints, and my newest favourite hand candy, a stringray bracelet! Fabulous. Also, I picked up a fuschia pink dog collar for my hound. Pictures currently being negotiated...

A Book Launch for An Indian Portia, Selected writings of Cornelia Sorabji (1866-1954) Cornelia Sorabji was the first Indian woman to practice law in Britain, and the first woman in the world to read law at Oxford. This book is a collection of selected writings by Cornelia, there are extracts from letters that she wrote home to her family. I was fortunate enough to hear several on Wednesday evening, one told of her attendance at Lord Tennyson's funeral, another,-a letter to a Viceroy in India, and one, of her interview with Gandhi. All very honest and quite delightful to read. I bought the book, of course.

Devils on Horseback anyone? Polo in the Park is on this weekend in London, and if I'm very disciplined with my writing, I shall be popping along with friends and a picnic. It was exhilarating last year so I'm giddy with anticipation!
A/N: Well that's my week so far. I shall report back on the Polo next week! How's your week coming along? Talei x
