Sometimes I feel like we live in an endless sea of black, white, beige and grey - the minimal uniform. The language of slick, chic and safe. Make no mistake, I wish I could be minimal. I wish I was... Continue reading

Dust I'm kinda liking here in the coal cellar. It's too dark to look in a mirror and my pesky family haven't figured out I'm in here yet... Queen Marie x

The those little collars are just fab. Avenue 32 has a gorgeous orange dress from the label and it had a detachable collar. I am so tempted!

Theodore Roosevelt once said - "Comparison is the thief of joy" Boy was he right. Comparing your "gifts" to those of others is one sure way to have you hiding under the duvet. But when the Isabel Marant Resort look... Continue reading

Hi Missy Payne. It was actually a lookbook sample they gave me. The dress itself never went into production, this one was the only one

Even at my girliest, I'm never particularly feminine. However, I do find myself often craving a more 60's take on the ultra-femme. The shapes are always a bit more interesting than your basic tight-from-top-to-bottom. Show me a cocoon shaped dress... Continue reading

Thank you Dust. You always manage to find the silver lining, you wonderfully positive creature that you are x Jen - I know, they look so sad there... x QMichelle - Sad to say, I think they probably jumped and ran under the bed to hide in shame x *sigh* Queen Marie xxx
Not at all. It was yummy! You just always set yourself such high standards. Hell, you could give Marry Berry a run for her money if you decide you are going to start making up your own cakes. And let's be honest, you could NEVER make too many practice cakes. Queen Marie x

I can't even talk about the cake. It was just wrong. It was the food colouring that ruined it because it gave the buttercream icing a weird, horrible flavour. I shouldn't have tried to make up my own cake. I'm a cake amateur. It was too soon.

As Tanja said, Queen Michelle is indeed a lady of many talents!!! I was completely blown away by this little guy, he is so perfect in every way. I was actually rendered speechless ( which doesn't happen very often), there were also tears ( which happens much more often) I honestly can't imagine how she was able to even start doing this. His little bell and ribbon just make him even more adorable. Thank you again Queenie and for my delicious cake too Queen Marie xxxx

Gucci? Oooh that's a funny one. If I was to put my hand on my heart and be honest, I have to say, I don't always feel the love for them. Which is funny as when it comes to fashion... Continue reading

I highly recommend it Susan. It's really enjoyable. I'm just decided what to create next!

As Queen Marie mentioned on Saturday, she decided she wanted us to make each other our birthday gifts this year. When she suggested it, I was a little perplexed as, bless her heart, Queen Marie is not entirely good with... Continue reading

Actually, they fell off the bed jacket, lost to the maze that is my bedroom floor, never to be seen again. Well, either they fell or jumped! Poor, sad little pom poms.
I have a date this afternoon. A date with a cake! Queen Michelle is making me a birthday cake and I am heading South Side for some tea and delicious cake... Last year, we made a birthday pact, to make... Continue reading

Do let me know what you wish to do. I can honestly meet you and take you with me and it won't be as scary. Just as well you didn't come over and say hi though - it might have been a bit awkward as it wasn't me! I've not left my seat all day!
I love a lassie, a bonnie, bonnie lassie She's as pure as the lily in the dell She's as sweet as the heather The bonnie purple heather Mary, ma Scotch bluebell It's funny, but until the Scottish Independence Referendum I... Continue reading

PLEASE do not too feel fat or unfit for these classes! We get all shapes, ages and sizes in class. It's honestly for everyone. You are allowed to take class at entirely your own pace. The more flexible among us get different exercises, or slightly modified versions. Believe me, I know how much courage it takes to start a new class, but I'm there and I can chum you! Please do it, because you'll really enjoy it once you get going. Honestly, they are not intimidating at all. You'll get lots out of it. Please come and try once at least? I can meet you first and you can come with me if it makes you feel better?
Thank you all for your kind birthday wishes yesterday x As Queen Michelle pointed out The Kingdom is approaching it's 8th birthday!!! Holy Moly, where has the time gone? Even if we had had the gift of second sight, I... Continue reading

Short ballet skirts really come to life in poses like this. They look like petals
Yours came off too??? Oh no. Balenciaga never replied to my email so I ended up having to phone them and verbally complain. I've sent them back and they are refunding me so I can just buy a new pair. I most definitely should expect it to happen again then. Pretty crap considering their cost.

So Monday night was the first ballet classes back after the summer break. I have never felt every minute of my 41 years as much as I did then. I was exceptionally lazy and hadn't done anything for the 2... Continue reading

Jumpsuits are the answer to our muscled legs! This one obviously gapes a little at the bust, because of the camisole style top, but most jumpsuits have more of a shirt or tshirt-style top half so that wouldn't be so much of a problem.
