Fashion on Friday: Fierce Tartan

tartan3

It was love at first sight; the moment that I saw this dress, I knew that it would have to be mine! That deep green plaid/tartan, the wiggle, the faux fur trim. Could this dress be any more perfect? The Rachel dress is a collaboration between Voodoo Vixen and Chicago Chic Blog. Whilst I was under no illusions that the … Read More

2016 Review: Part 2

img_1635.jpg

It’s been a big year. Lately, in discussions with friends, I’ve found myself saying “terrible globally, great professionally.” I’ve almost felt guilty for admitting to myself that it’s been a pretty good year – in spite of tears shed in front of the news channels on more than one occasion. It’s been such a big year that I had to … Read More

2016 Review: Part 1

img_1520.jpg

Too much happened this year for one review! Let’s split the year cleanly in half and try to review it logically. The year began in the way that so many of mine do; tipsy and watching music on the telly. I tweeted after midnight that, though happy with my lot in life, I would rather be David Bowie. Then he … Read More

Weekend Bakes: I’ve Been Having a Mini Moment!

img_1635.jpg

(Dress by The House of Foxy)  What a week! Yesterday, I was in my kitchen all day with my rather fabulous director, Emily, making our first video. There was probably far too much giggling to be proper serious grown-ups and we took a break to watch an episode of The Mighty Boosh. I think this is going to be the … Read More

Wedding Cake Wednesday: Here Comes 2017

The week between two shows is always a little weird. Kit is hardly even unpacked before it is being put back into the suitcase once again! As such, I am a little manic at present. Not being one for slowing down, I visited the wonderful Food Matters Live yesterday to get inspired by small producers, sustainable produce, free-from alternatives, and a … Read More

Good morning, you gorgeous lot! I had the best time at Foodies Festival Christmas in London at the weekend. I enlisted Jamie Laing from Made in Chelsea as my glamorous assistant once again… We baked up a Candy Kitten cascade cake together. He is so hired! I also had the chance to chat to GBBO winner, Candice Brown as she baked. … Read More
