From the blog...
We didn’t manage a traditional summer holiday this year. You know, the type that your hairdresser asks you about the minute you get in the chair. There was no exotic faraway destinations, no new areas to scratch off our travel map and no sipping cocktails by the pool in 30 degree heat. And you know... Read more »Read this post

A lifestyle blogWith honesty at its core
What started as an online diary back in 2009 (!), this lifestyle blog has developed into honest space to document my daily life and loves, from fashion to food to family.

The Baking Club
Love of a good slice of cake (either baking it or eating it)? Who doesn’t right? The Flaky Bakers Club was started as a way to find and connect fellow cake lovers and create a community of baking enthusiasts of all levels. A friendly cake community, open to everyone and aimed at those of us who have a passion for baking but admittedly aren’t always Pinterest perfect. With a monthly theme, a friendly gang of bakers ready to discuss biscuit vs cake, and lots of support, we celebrate the fails as much as the wins. Whether you want to sign up and share your bakes or simply get some recipe inspiration, take a browse…Join the Club
October's Baking Club Theme
The baking club took a break while I disappeared to have a baby and do the Mum thing for a while and is now relaunching with a new name, this fab new page dedicated to all the latest news and (hopefully soon) some new members.
I’m currently working away behind the scenes to get everything set up but will be back in October with our first monthly baking theme! Sign up below to make sure you get the memo when it’s time to say ready, steady, bake!
