Fashion on Friday: Lorelei Lee

There are a few items in my wardrobe that I come back to again and again with all the enthusiasm of the first time I tried them on. I try not to have favourites amongst my beloved frocks but I do… this is my favourite dress. The Lorelei Dress from Glamour Bunny is a pretty faithful replica of one of … 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

I Would Love to Bake a Cake for… Madonna

Long time, no type! I’ve missed you all and hope that you have not missed your Monday fix of weirdness from me too much. I’ve been super busy and also super tired – in the days before I flew up to Edinburgh for Foodies Festival I picked up an eye infection which knocked me for six. I’m not sure whether … 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

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

I Would Love to Bake a Cake for… Gareth Southgate

I mean, who wouldn’t right now? I am not a football fan, though I was very much raised to be. My baby photos show me snuggled up on a knitted claret and blue baby mat, its soft woolen fronds luring me into a false sense of security; as the fifth generation Aston Villa supporter in my family, the year of … Read More

Fashion on Friday: Lipstick All Over

I’m a sucker for anything with a lipstick print motif! It’s perhaps unsurprising that I was drawn to Silly Old Sea Dog’s Luscious Lipstick Dress like a moth to a flame. This was a little present from me to me at The Festival of Vintage in York back in April, at which I splashed the cash on a few beautiful … Read More

I Would Love to Bake a Cake for… All the Marx Bros Blondes

On Saturday, Chris and I visited a 1940s event in the town of Newport Pagnell. This small Buckinghamshire town really enters into the spirit of this new annual event, the high street shops taping up their windows and 1940s entertainment available in most of the town’s pubs and hotels. It was a great excuse to get dressed up. I wore … Read More

Fashion on Friday: Lemon Sherbet

There is something about wearing yellow that makes me instantly happy. I think that it is an intrinsic link to my childhood, in which my memory has me mostly dressed in yellow. I’ve avoiding yellow in my adulthood as I was convinced I could not get away with wearing it, being so very pale and so very blonde. My latest … Read More

Foodies Festival 2018 Syon Park

Well, it only took me a full week and a bit to recover from Foodies Festival Syon Park. I’d say that is a pretty swift recovery! Looking through the pictures on my phone, I cannot believe that this show was over a week ago and I cannot quite believe the show that we put on. I’m passionate about showcasing new … Read More
