Fun stuff and giveaways

Hey y’all. To tide you all over until I have some nice outfit shots to post (no idea when that will be… but at least I can do summer clothes now, thanks sunshine!), I have some competitions and events to write about. First up – I was emailed by the fab LoveurLook, who are a…

Bella Venezia – Part 2

So continuing my holiday snaps, we actually spent most of the holiday in a town about an hour north of Venice, called Sacile. It’s where a lot of my boyfriend’s Italian family live. Italian relatives aren’t like English ones – when you tell them not to come over, they come anyway and shower you with…

A right Royal carriage

Hello! Last weekend, I went to see the Queen again! Unfortunately, not only was she out for the day, but she had taken some of the things I had gone to look at. But being the Queen, she can do as she darn well pleases, of course. After writing only recently about King Edward VII’s…

#tbt – to Fleurs gone by

It’s been a whopping FOUR years this month since I started collaborating with lovely Shona Heyday on our vintage reproduction wrap dresses that she kindly decided to name the Fleur dress. (This isn’t intended to be a salesy piece, but if you do want to check them out, go here) As an addict of vintage…

Bella Venezia – part 1

Greetings from Venice! Well, not actually from Venice, I came back two weeks ago. Feels like longer though – post-holiday blues is well in effect! Thought I’d show off some of my holiday snaps… not boring ones, hopefully… outfitty ones. It wasn’t really that warm in Italy, where we were, about an hour outside Venice….

Luminous skin revisited!

Hello lovelies! Without meaning to sound boastful or big headed, I often get compliments on my skin. Lots of makeup artists have said nice things about it (though the cynic in me thinks they probably say this to everyone) and people often profess amazement about my age. They may just be being polite, but it…

The King’s Laureate

It’s that time again! I enjoy writing these posts for the King’s Ginger so much – digging through the history of fascinating people and places that had some association with King Edward VII give me much pleasure. I hope you enjoy reading them as much! With that, it’s time to delve into the life and…

Breezy steez

Hello! I’m currently mid-flow in my newest King’s Ginger blog, but as I don’t really think it fits the format to do full on outfit shots for said posts, I thought I’d share a couple as a kind of sneak peek. They were taken at what may be one of the loveliest spots in southern…

Schoolday chic

Hello from slightly more spring-like London! I occasionally get offered things to review through my blog and I hardly accept anything these days (I have too much stuff, not enough space and no wish to be a greedy git). But when a very kind and helpful young man from The Leather Satchel Co. got in…

#ThrowbackThursday!

Every month, when I do my King’s Ginger posts, I have to search through the image archives on my blog to find the KGL logo. Since my blog has now been going for six years this May, there’s a lot of old pictures from way back that I have to scroll past. And, since my…
