Tired but happy

This weekend was an adventure alright! Up at dark o’clock and on the train to Wales, where it was raining cats, dogs and elephants all day. But Rebecca Parker was an absolutely perfect hostess and I had a simply wonderful day in her studio. Back to my B&B and I discovered the pub it’s attached…

In the swing of things

I really love swing dancing. Love it, love it, love it. I wish with all my heart I had started learning it five years ago as I could be so good at it by now! However, my best friend Gemma and I are apparently doing extremely well for people who’ve only been learning for a…

Weddings, part a gazillion

Finally, my wedding season is over! I had a super busy day yesterday. I got up at 7, was in London at 10 for a photoshoot and then went back home and back up to London at 5pm for my aunt’s wedding reception! The photoshoot went fantastically well. The photographer, Stephen Thorne had come over…

More tea!

Site update!

I can’t actually believe how slack I have been on the site updating malarky. I’ve now given myself a kick and done a new gallery featuring all the pictures from the beach shoot that I did a while back. I posted some of the results of the shoot in this blog, but if you want…

Move over Rita!

I have a new idol. And, in fact, a huge girl crush. On the stunningly beautiful and downright awesome Virginia O’Brien, whose nicknames included “Miss Deadpan” and “Frozen Face” due to her unique and unusual singing style. Now I won’t regale you with any more facts, because everything I know about her has been gleaned…

Two very different visual treats

Hands up, who reads comics? I know I do. I have written in this blog before about being a not-so-secret nerd. I’ve even been to San Diego Comic-Con, twice! I haven’t been since 2006 though, boo. Last time, I met Jonathan Ross and Dita von Teese! (Prepare yourself for old and unflattering pictures! (I’m not…

A most civilised afternoon. And weddings, part 2!

Last Sunday, for my best friend Gemma’s birthday, she, I and her sister Sonia went off up to London to take Afternoon Tea at Fortnum and Mason. I have only ever been past this iconic London department store, and have never been inside, let alone bought anything. I have to say that Gemma did want…
