Treehouse sleepover

Remember the prickly excitement you used to feel as a child over an impending sleepover? How you’d lock sleep out of the room and spend as long as you could discussing how much you hated Mrs Bloomer, your evil, sharp-tonged science teacher with a death gaze and rather impressive mustache, or planning how your friend was going to tell Jamie Hammersley that ...

Red Vixen.

I don’t do a red lip daily, which may well be to do with the upsetting fact that they don’t tend to mix too well with my 2-year-old son… but I do love the transformative power that a red lipstick holds. There really is no better way to instantly add some glamour to your look than painting your lips red. I ... Read More »

Out of the Grey.

IMG_4356

I drew the curtains to be greeted by another grey, drizzly January day in London. I decided, if you can’t beat them, join them, so I dressed in grey attire, and my mood? Well, that’s been kind of grey too. I’ve been feeling a little unmotivated and somewhat insular, sort of like I’m inside a bubble that I just can’t seem to pop. I ... Read More »

Turning into my Mother

IMG_0136

When I spotted this cute little brown velvet skirt in the window of a shop on the King’s Road, it reminded me so much of something my mother would have worn in the 70s, I knew I just had to get it. I suppose in a way it’s sort of like a little nod to her – if she had lived ... Read More »

We’re ready for you, terrible two.

They call it the terrible twos, they say it’s lasts around year and if you do manage survive it you’ll drag your broken body out the other side a different person. Tantrums and mayhem can strike at any moment. They say if you want to survive it with a scrap of your sanity intact you’ll have to ‘pick your battles’, and just come to ... Read More »

Let’s talk magic!

When I first decided I wanted to be a make-up artist and enrolled on a make-up course I wondered if it would actually teach me anything I didn’t already know. However, after just the first hour I had realised just how much I had to learn. After finishing the course I did a few magazine photoshoots assisting some established make-up artists. I felt ...

For little me.

IMG_9475

When I spotted this ’70s-esque burgundy corduroy dress as I scrolled through my Wantfeed one evening, it sort of reignited the little five-year-old in me. You see, when I was five all I wanted in the whole world (apart from my primary school crush, Jay Standing, to notice me) was to wear a grey pinafore dress to school. You know, the one all ...

Christmas Red velvet Cupcakes

IMG_8828

A few years ago, an upcoming seasonal holiday was all the excuse I needed to have me reaching for the nearest bottle of Prosecco. Now that I’m a mum with a daily 6am wakeup call, I find myself reaching into the baking cupboard instead; this time it was to whip up some holiday themed red velvet cupcakes. We were having some friends over for a ... Read More »

A misty morning

IMG_7735

We woke up a few days ago to a city engulfed in a thick, majestic fog, The sort of fog that creeps in unannounced and carries with it a heavy scent that invokes so much emotion with each breath. So, the boys and I grabbed our winter coats and all wandered into the thick murk that enveloped Battersea Park. This simple walk in the park felt ... Read More »
