INTRODUCING FINLAY & CO


I'm addicted to sunglasses, there I said it. I have 11 pairs at home, 2 in my bag for driving and 1 pair at work. I very rarely spend a lot of money on sunglasses, just because I'm useless at not losing or scratching them, but I can always appreciate a gorgeous design. So when I discovered British eyewear label, Finlay & Co, I wanted to share their latest lookbook with you. You all know I love a well-shot lookbook.

RECIPE: RASPBERRY LIMONCELLO FIZZ


With the weather being as beautiful as it is in the UK right now, what better time than to put together a little cocktail recipe which you can serve up to friends on a gorgeous sun-filled weekend. 

As you can guess from the title, my recipe today is for a raspberry and limoncello fizz. I decided to put "fizz" because you can use prosecco, wine or champagne - as long as it's got bubbles then you're on to a winner.

TILE DESIGNING WITH TOPPS TILES


I'd like to think of myself as a creative bean. When I was younger, I was always the one making something, or drawing something on a weekend whilst my sister was out playing army with the boys. Even when it was sunny, I'd be inside trying to master the latest Art Attack project.

So when Topps Tiles got in touch about the brand new Victorian inspired Henley Cool tile and asked if I'd like to have a go at creating my own, I thought why not...it can't be that hard. I was wrong.

AFTERNOON TEA, BABIES AND LOTS OF LOVE


Last Sunday I had the honour of hosting a baby shower for my older sister. Expecting her first child in just over a month, I can't even explain how excited I am to be an Auntie. It's been a long, hard struggle for herself and her husband, but in the end a little miracle occurred and this summer, our family will have a brand new addition. 

With that said, I wanted to give my sister a really nice send off into motherhood if you like. She is literally one of the most kind hearted people you will meet - if, and when, you need her, she's there without a doubt. So last Sunday myself, and 14 of her closest friends and family met for afternoon tea at Browns Restaurant in Leeds. But before then, it started with an invite...

PITTI UOMO FLORENCE: SNAPS FROM THE STREET


For those that have read my blog from year dot will know that I'm lucky enough to travel to Florence twice a year for premium menswear tradeshow Pitti Uomo - which for those who don't know is where buyers from around the world go see what designers and brands have created for them to buy in store for s/s 16. 

This year I travelled alone which gave me a lot more time to get my work done, but also go and snap some sights. And those sights included a lot of well dressed gents. Click below to see what I got up to during my three days in Italy and expect normal blogging to resume pretty soon.
