Fashion On Friday: I’m In Love

I know that I promised you part two of my Parisian wardrobe adventure… that is coming, I promise. I wanted to take a brief interlude as I was so excited to receive my latest slogan jumper from Joanie Clothing. To be honest, this may be the start of a growing addiction. When Joanie Clothing reached their second birthday earlier this … Read More

Fashion on Friday: Parisian Wardrobe

I’ve been delayed in sharing these pictures with you in the aftermath of my wonderful Parisian getaway in September – as is so often the case, I came back to loads of things that needed doing, cakes that needed baking, etc. However, I have been asked so will share with you my version of a capsule wardrobe fit for exploring … Read More

I Would Love to Bake a Cake for… Absolute Bowie

I think about David Bowie a lot. I talk about David Bowie more than I probably should. I don’t think I write about David Bowie enough. This can be partly explained by his death – an event that I am still able in many ways to pretend never happened – and partly by a feeling of complete inadequacy. Far clevererer … Read More

I Would Love to Bake a Cake for… Louis XIV

Today’s post will be a brief one as I am currently on holiday… my first proper getaway in many many years. I have spent the past few days exploring the city and Palace of Versailles with Chris. How could I not want to bake a cake for King Louis XIV of France and Navarre (1643 – 1715), a Monarch who … Read More

Fashion on Friday: London Edge A/W 2018

Autumn and Winter are my favourite seasons sartorially speaking. I’m longing for gloves, hats, and capes. Woolen vintage finds and my ever-expanding collection of tartan and check prints are all carefully stored away in anticipation of their necessity. OK so I’ve been a little down on this incredible summer – it really has been incredible – but that is only … Read More

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

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

If you are lucky enough to live in a town or city that makes the effort to put on great foodie events for you, you go, right? The people of beautiful Bedford turned up en masse last weekend for the second annual Taste Bedford food festival. I cannot thank the team at Taste and BedPop for asking me to host … Read More
