I Would Love to Bake a Cake for… the Early Adopters

A quick thank you to start the week – and this can’t be a bad way to start any week – to those who have already subscribed to my new podcast, Fantasy Bakes. The idea to launch a podcast came in Edinburgh last November. I was in town for Foodies Festival and one of my amazing chefs in The Cake … Read More

2018: That Was The Year That Was

This post may be a little delayed. I had every intention of sharing this with you on New Year’s Eve as a way to wrap up the year but let’s be honest with each other, I was far too distracted by spending time with my family and friends, and you were probably off having fun too. Now that we are … Read More

I Would Love to Bake a Cake for… Captain Sensible

One day, Chris asked me if I had heard of The Damned before we met. I most certainly had. I think my knowledge and love of music that came out ‘before my time’ was one of the things that he loved about me! I reminded Chris that I had heard The Damned many years before we met… because my parents … Read More

Foodies Festival 2018: Oxford

Last week, I shared the penultimate show in the Foodies Festival summer season with you after quite a delay. What can I say? Life gets in the way but I did not want to leave these last shows without their proper round up. To say that our final show of the summer in Oxford was special would be an understatement. … Read More

Foodies Festival 2018: Edinburgh

The eagle-eyed amongst you may have noticed that there were a couple of posts missing from my blog this summer – there were never posts about Foodies Festival Edinburgh or Oxford, despite posts after every other show. The reasons for this were not malicious but rather the result of my workload and, after Edinburgh, a short period of feeling a … Read More

Fashion on Friday: Wisteria Hysteria

As we start to put Summer fashion to bed and dream of tartan prints, heavy fabrics, and gloves (oh, the gloves I have in waiting for Autumn/Winter!), there are still a few more sunny day dresses to be enjoyed. I wanted to share this beauty with you. Hysteria Floral Wisteria Print Dress from Joanie Clothing RRP £45 (click image for … Read More

Foodies Festival 2018 Tatton Park

I spent a solid three days laughing at Foodies Festival Tatton Park. How can I explain it to you if you missed it? I am going to do my utmost but you have to promise me that you will not miss our last two shows of the year – we have one in Edinburgh for our Scottish foodie friends from … Read More

I Would Love to Bake a Cake for… Poldark

Taking a ‘day off’ does not come easily to me – case in point, here I am tapping away at my laptop on said ‘day off’ – and it probably never will. Aside from the obvious of being my own boss and the fact that my work never really feels like work because I enjoy it, there is a sense … Read More

Foodies Festival 2018 Birmingham

Another sunny Foodies Festival? I really wasn’t far off the mark when I decided that 2018 was going to be the best season ever! It’s been amazing sharing sunny days and so much sweet stuff with you all. Today, I am sharing the pictures from Birmingham BUT we will be back on the road this weekend – you can come … Read More
