weddingfest fun…


What happens when a fantastic couple throw a wedding party with a hot air balloon, an interactive circus performance for kiddies, an ice-cream van, hog roast, mini golf, football for certain ‘out of practice’ team members, bouncy castles, fantastic food, a brilliant band, dj, and a genius photobooth? THIS…this is what you get…. Thank you […]

one more step along the world I go….


Last Wednesday saw my little girl’s last day at their incredible Sandygate School before the Summer Holidays began. It was an already bonkers week with work, attending a fashion trade show AND a press show, and the added challenge of volunteering the teacher’s gift collection plus an illustration as part of the present (see above….why do […]

magical, musical madness…


There are no words to describe how much fun I had this weekend….’magical’ and ‘incredible’ are just two. It was my gorgeous friend Emma’s 40th – we met Emma and Dom via our NCT group when we lived in Battersea, and we knew at that first and slightly awkward meeting that we’d be good friends. […]

It had to be said, my hedges needed a damn good trimming and it was so time to call my trusty team from Jenks Wokingham, Nathan and Stuart – the most experienced, trustworthy and attractive Arboritists in the land. By a long shot. They pop over, have a little look and post me a quote for […]

a snowy New York Fashion Week…


Feb’s been a funny old month, namely due to the crazy amount of work which has seen some fantastic opportunities over the last few weeks – one of which I must mention here because it’s just a little too fabulous. I was recently invited to New York, to meet with a few people and attend […]

the contemporary, the kooky and the downright crazy…


It’s that lovely time of the year, while the snow softly drifts across the UK, wrapping up warm, making excuses that because it’s cold outside one must fatten up with hot chocolate, hearty roasts, soups and other gorgeous and naughty things (clearly I speak for myself here…I’ve been running though to burn off said indulgences…yes, […]
