I Would Love to Bake a Cake for… Michael Barbaro

I am addicted to American politics. I put this down to two contributing factors; firstly, I was very impressionable at the age of 17/18 when I studied for my History A Level. My course included a year spent studying American History, they took us out to Boston, I tried Reese’s Pieces for the first time, I was hooked. Incidentally, at … Read More

I Would Love to Bake a Cake for… Elle Woods

My public service announcement for the week is that Legally Blonde (Robert Luketic, 2001) is available to stream on Netflix. For many years now, this has been my ‘comfort movie’ and been there like a cinematic cuddle from a warm cup of cocoa as the world whirls around me. I love this film so much that it was my go-to … 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

I Would Love to Bake a Cake for… Steve Lamacq

I do rather love music. Had you figured that out yet? Last week, this music lover got an early Christmas present when she scored tickets to the BBC 6 Music Christmas Party at Maida Vale. Let’s backtrack a little here… I have been a 6 Music listener for many years now and this station makes up a large portion of … Read More

I Would Love to Bake a Cake for… Courtney Act

I have written about my love of drag before in a Monday post dedicated to Bianca Del Rio, the Queen of Queens. I love everything about drag and I think that I always have; from a childhood spent watching Tony Curtis and Jack Lemmon disguising themselves as women in Some Like It HotĀ (Billy Wilder, 1959), to the gay club hostesses … Read More

I Would Love to Bake a Cake for… She-Ra

Or ‘Sheila’ as a younger version of myself originally misheard. Yes, you can imagine my Mother’s amusement as her young daughter ran around the living room squeaking about how she was now SHEEEEEIIILAAAAAA, the Princess of Power. The 1980s really was a golden age of overblown children’s television and I am so glad that I grew up with it. Hopefully, … 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
