Fabulous Fontaine’s

Recently, my dear friend and former events partner Emerald Fontaine did something rather amazing. She’s opened what is definitely the most amazing Art Deco bar in all of London town.  Best of all, my London readers will get a special offer this week/end… read on! Fontaine’s is in Dalston, in the trendy East End and…

Socks and sandals (and kittens)

As any regular readers will know, I love Swedish Hasbeens a lot. I have many pairs and practically live in them in the summer. I also have a pair of winter boots I snagged at a too-good-to-resist sale price a couple of years ago, but, apart from those, my clog collection doesn’t get worn in…

Small business love – Hengelo, Haslemere

Do you ever go and try on things that are completely not your style, just for fun? I did a few weeks go (OK a month ago now), when I was visiting my lovely parents where they live in Haslemere. My mum loves clothes and had told me about a new(ish) shop in the town…

Turkey Part 1 – the Bodrum bit

Well, it’s only been nearly two months since I came back, but I thought I’d do some posts about my summer holiday… now that the sun is completely gone. It might work to remind me about when it was hot and my lovely summer clothes weren’t vacuum-packed into cotton bricks! I had the most amazing…

Trust in the Ginger

Today I’m going to tell you a little story about the formation of what might be the most quintessentially British thing ever… mainly because it’s been ensuring that large swathes of our precious countryside and many of our historical stately homes remained preserved for generations to come. It also has a little to do with…

Typical a-Typical

Hooray, huzzah, hoorah! The access to my Flickr account has been restored! While I get on with editing and uploading photos for my very overdue King’s Ginger blog, here are some I didn’t take earlier. The very gorgeous Miss Turnstiles, aka Simone of the perfect hair and amazing wardrobe, has been busy in the last…

Halloween-ish.

This was meant to be a post for The King’s Ginger, but  I have managed to somehow lock myself out of my Flickr account until later today, and if you’re a regular reader you will know that those posts are very picture heavy. So I have made myself a free Photobucket account in order to…

Subculture Clash

Clash… get it? 😉 I hardly ever model any more, through choice rather than because I never get asked. Sometimes I feel a little long in the tooth, which I know is rubbish, but also because I quite often get weirdly self-conscious if anyone sees me posing in public. That said, it is fun, on…

Bonus Boomstick Outfit Post!

Good afternoon. As is so often the way when I do photos for big articles like my last King’s Ginger one, I take a few extra photos for a super lazy outfit post. Because I *still* haven’t processed my holiday snaps, here is something of a holding post, featuring the outfit I wore to Purdey…

The King’s Boomstick

(That is boomstick, and not broomstick, though we are getting towards Halloween! Evil Dead fans will know…) Greetings from an autumnal London! For my latest King’s Ginger investigation, I am going to write about a slightly controversial subject – shooting. Or, more specifically, guns. Disclaimer: I’ve done clay pigeon shooting before, but I could never…
