Last week whilst watching the news about the on goings in Ferguson Missouri, someone asked me why I cared about any of it. Her reasons; I don’t live in America, I am not American, so why should I care about what is going on there. How she walked away unscathed I don’t know, but my retort wasn’t pretty or PG enough to print.

On August 9 2014, Michael Brown Jr. and a friend, Dorian Johnson were…

When it comes to make up I am a novice, and pretty boring, so by no means should you place any authority on what I say, except of course I say it so convincingly… lol. And when it comes to lip glosses, I am a woman who sticks to a formulae, rarely walk on the wild side, that wild side being a different shade. I am a pink woman through and through, in thousands of shades but in the same family,…

Chef, The Movie

Good food. Passion. Ambition. Screwing up and picking up to have another go. Courage of conviction. This is what feel good is all about and this is what Chef serves up. 

That is all of it.

Since I saw John Leguizamo’s interview on Wendy, I decided I had to see chef, its been a long time since I saw a comedy that was both meaningful,…

Amazing Grace

Apologies for the blog silence the world has me a little bit disenfranchised and angry with it’s goings on, and when I’m angry I cannot write objectively. Too many curse words you see. But we’re here now.

In church this morning this was a part of the hymn sequence. I’d forgotten how much I love this song. It really is the best of…

The World Is A Mess

The World Is A Mess

It’s not often that I agree with Donald Trump, actually I never do, but he tweeted something poignant the other day that summed up our feelings on the global situation right now.

“We are now at a time perhaps more than ever when the world needs GREAT leadership”

Truer words have never been tweeted.

A couple weeks ago, I was scouting locations for an event and had the privilege of touring round Strawberry Hill House and what a magical place it is. We ended up passing on using the space, but it left me with a lasting impression.

Strawberry Hill House was transformed from a couple of cottages to a gothic castle by Horace Walpole right in the heart of Twickenham. The castle became and remains a place to visit. It’s out of the way for the touristy traveller, so chances are you’ll still enjoy visiting as you won’t be besieged with the Harrods crowd. It’s a unique space for events be it school days out, corporate away days, weddings, etc. The grounds outside are beautiful, but its the inside that takes your breath away, filled with character and wonder. The ceilings, the carvings, the hallways, halls, stained windows…its Wonderland meets Hogwarths and I might have found the perfect red room from Fifty Shades of Grey…lol.

Its simply stunning, and that stained window is right where the promo for The Gentle Woman was shot. As you wander along the corridors, bends, and rounds, look up at the ceilings and be bowled over by the detail.

If you’re getting married I’d look here first and then no further. Its perfect.

Processed with VSCOcam with c1 preset She’s here and I am no where near ready for her. This happens most every summer; I make plans during the winter months to get my butt in gear, body tight and  right, even make a good start on it but never really seem to be channelling Beyonce- yes its always Beyonce pre BEYONCÉ, when her curves gave me major envy, that original Bey Body- come May-June. I mean, one day I may get there but clearly…
