WI Workshops and the WI Fair

I love visiting WI groups; the Women’s Institute is now as much of a force to be reckoned with as it ever was, with new groups springing up all over the country and membership numbers on the up. On Friday, I visited a fabulous group at WI House in Northampton. We spent the morning decorating chocolate cupcakes with sugarpaste roses … Read More

Squires Kitchen Exhibition 2017

IMG_8703

What a wonderful weekend I had at the 31st annual Squires Kitchen Exhibition. Though it is far from the largest cake show of the year, held in the labyrinthine Farnham Maltings, it is one of the most inspiring. Squires Kitchen have been innovating with their sugarcraft products since the late 80s. Founded by a genuine sugarcrafter, the company works closely … Read More

Work in Progress Wednesday: Catch Me Live on Facebook

Cheeky phone preview pic from my latest photo shoot!

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
