Garlic and I are not necessarily the best of friends. I remember gorging dining at The Stinking Rose when visiting the US many years ago and lived to regret it. Not that the food wasn't very good, only that it... Continue »

Beetroot are sprouting forth from our garden at great speed – we are getting a decent crop every few weeks. They're reasonably priced at markets and greengrocers at this time of year too. This can only mean one thing – it’s beetroot season. This is cause for great celebration and... Continue »

This afternoon folks, we've got TWO weddings to share with you. Two. See, we have so many beautiful beautiful days waiting to be published to our pages that we've ramped things up a little this afternoon and are going all-out overload on the inspiration factor. Starting, with this lovely, relaxed and colourful celebration of Robin and Tara who tied the knot on 11 May this year in Edinburgh. "Although I grew up in the UK, I'm originally from India and Robin from Warwickshire and we decided quite early on that some kind cultural 'mash up' wasn’t really our thing. So... Continue »

If it weren't for bad luck, I'd have no luck at all. I love that saying because sometimes I feel like that's the case.

I realize some some of you may not have met a celebrity before. But since I lived in LA for 10+ years, it was bound to happen. And no matter how common the sightings, I was star struck every time. So here's my question for you... Do you have a favorite celebrity encounter story? My answer... The very first celebrity I met was P. Diddy, who went by Puff Daddy at the time. It was my freshman year of college at USC and the Shrine Auditorium was right across the street from my dorm. I spotted him chilling on the... Continue »

Swiss product designer, Qiyun Deng, created these beautiful disposable veggie utensils for a study on color, texture and casting. They're made from bioplastic PLA, a material usually derived from vegetable raw materials. Unfortunately, they're still a concept at this point, but I can see them selling really well, can't you? Except I'd never want to throw them away! {Images via THE Mag} Continue »

A tea dress is one of the most versatile pieces in any wardrobe and we love this version – the Navy floral v neck (£35). Navy looks gorgeous with pastel shades so pick up this summery pair of Coral perpex pointed courts (£42), make the most of the warm weather and keep your legs bare. Add a Black stud clutch (£22) and keep accessories simple with this Gold look bangle (£7.50). We think this outfit is perfect for an alfresco dinner date! For winter time dress it down with tights, ankle boots and a leather jacket! x Continue »

A lovely late afternoon addition to our collection of posts today with this wedding day bursting full of colour. Ally and Leah tied the knot on 6 May at Manchester Town Hall, followed by a reception at Room Restaurant. Their day was one full of bright, vibrant hues and a dress that smacked urban elegance... "I purchased my wedding dress from Ebay via a boutique shop in Sheffield that had closed down - they were selling their samples. Regrettably it didn't have it's designer label in, so I'm unable to share this with you, but I love that it's different... Continue »

I think I need to admit that I kind of love Kingston, NY. It's one of the great cities to visit in the Hudson Valley. It's not perfect, but it's got a lot of great stuff going on and I always enjoy my visits there. Plus I sell jewelry in two great stores in Kingston (Karmabee and Art Riot). I'm super duper excited to participate in the first ever Rock n Roll Flea Market. There's even a nice write up... Continue »
