I Would Love to Bake a Cake for… Bianca Del Rio

Boloney! Feeling bereft after devouring the most recent season (9) of RuPaul’s Drag Race, I found myself revisiting old friends. I basked in the comforting warmth of season 6 and reacquainted myself with Adore Delano, BenDeLaCreme, Courtney Act, and my all-time favourite queen, Bianca Del Rio. Apologies if you did not know that Bianca was crowned the winner of season … Read More

Rock Me, Amadeus

Of the many things that I get passionate about, music was probably my first love. I was fortunate because my Father is a musician and ran a music shop for the first 16 years of my life – there was always music to listen to and always instruments to play music on. My first documented live performance was at the … Read More

Foodies Festival Tatton Park PICTURES

Foodies Festival Blackheath PICTURES

What a weekend. I think these pictures speak for themselves and how much fun we all had at Foodies Blackheath. Day One came with a Wimbledon theme brought by Lorna Robertson and Nicola Milbank. We ate strawberries and Pimms and a lot of Eton Mess. My cute rainbow and pompom dress is from Voodoo Vixen. It was perfect on a … Read More

I Would Love to Bake a Cake for… Rick Wakeman (Reprise)
