Went to Falmouth for a little 'staycation' over Bank Holiday. It was beautiful there, but things were a little on the pricy side. My friend Olivia and I hiked and rode (on both bike and horse) around the Cornish countryside. Here are the pics I took!

Yes, I tried the fried Creme Egg (only because it was Easter). Strangely, it was easier to consume; less sweet, somehow!

Mmm the best fish and chips of my life was enjoyed in the same plaice (haha, geddit?)


Posing on a rock comes as standard

Stitched Vogue Covers = Amazingness by Inge Jackson

Seriously, Vogue should hire this girl to do a real cover, they could do a craft-inspired issue. Makes me want to rediscover cross-stitching!

Great Graffiti on New Bond Street - Shocker!

How great is this? It was on the side of temporary scaffolding on New Bond Street. Naughty Queen!

Derek Lawlor's Cruise Scarf Collection

I went along to see designer Derek Lawlor’s autumn/winter collection at the Milk Concept Boutique in Shoreditch. Derek’s clothing pieces are mainly structural knitwear. His style has translated beautifully into a printed ‘cruise scarf collection.’ I want a big sarong to swan about in!

I had often passed the Milk Concept Boutique on my way to Liverpool Street but had felt slightly intimidated by the beauty I had seen through the window. Do NOT be scared – the people that work there are all lovely and their interesting wares are definitely worth viewing close up. Be sure to pop in if you’re ever east. Be warned: they also sell Repetto pumps which are ridiculously expensive but ever so tempting.

The Royal Crescent Hotel, Bath

I went to Bath with my Dad a few weeks ago. We stayed in the rather lovely Royal Crescent Hotel ( and I enjoyed the most delicious dinner of my life in the hotel’s restaurant, The Dower House. The setting was stunning, the service was exquisite, and the spa was gorgeous too, all stone and candles. It was my first time visiting Bath and I found it to be a beautiful place with lots of interesting shops and nooks and crannies!

Bad Wildbad, the Black Forest

I went to visit my poorly Omama (German Granny) in a rehab centre in Bad Wildbad, the Black Forest. The place was so beautiful, all fresh air and babbling brooks. When we weren’t visiting Omama, it was lovely to walk around and see the pretty churches during the day and eat lots of traditional German fare in the evenings. Rennie, anyone?

We saw people made of pasta, creepy mannequins in the windows of hairdressers and lots of cool statues. Enjoy the pics!

New Wellies!

Haven't got round to booking any holidays/festivals yet but by gads I have started planning my holiday/festival wardrobe. Number one on my wishlist is a funky new pair of wellies (chucked mine away after Glastonbury). I want Hunters, and I want them now. Check out their new high-tops (above), they are sooo cool.
