Dear Fellow Bloggers: Thanks For Being Awesome! #community #inspiration #goals

Fresh of the back of a twitter chat and still reading through the transcript to find any missed tweets (those things can get pretty fast), I just had to put fingers to keyboard for an impromptu blog post.  Though I have a tonne of project posts I am working on, this will be my first non-photo publish since we got married on the 16th August.  Okay, so ideally I’d have been soaking up the sun on a tropical island and not getting work done, but such is life.  I don’t need to tell that to any parent bloggers reading who […]

London College of Fashion: 2014 Show at The Yard – Fresh Young Talent – Part 1

  I am more than a little bit in love with LCF London and all it does.  Right off Oxford Street, this hallowed institution shapes eager young men and women into the fashion designers of tomorrow, moulding raw talent and passion for fashion as an art form into practical yet expressive and fresh skills ready to create the sort of sumptuous collections of clothing fit to grace a catwalk.   This year, I was lucky enough to attend an event that showcased the fresh young talent doing just that.  Here are some of the amazing creations that were lovingly draped over stunning […]

Houseplant hotel with Charlie Dimmock: The Joy of Plants – Summertime and Holiday Tips

Before I go on holiday I make sure that we have everything we will need for our stay, that the fridge has no perishables left in it and that the house and cats are taken care of.  My mother-in-law asks that her plants are watered, though the person tasked with this often forgets as soon as the door closes behind her.  For both of us this has made for many dead houseplants, bought or gifted once and nurtured with the best of intentions, only to end up on the compost heap.  And we are not alone.  According to a study […]

Orange is the New Black: Class issues, Education, Addiction, Alcoholism, LGBT issues and more – tune in wise up

Okay, so before we start I have to profess a bias.  I total and unending love for this series that anyone who doesn’t care for it will be sick of by now.  Not that I’ve actually met anyone that doesn’t like it.  After a serious buzz was created, I just had to watch.  I can’t bare to be left out of anything and I watched the Twilight films and read the Fifty Shades trilogy for the same reasons but boy did I regret both of those decisions.  Kristen Stewarts dead eyes still haunt my dreams.   ***Contains minor spoilers***   As the […]
