I see the trend for 90's rebellion has well and truly spoken. The era of 'I simply don't give a shit'! So come as you are, wear a babydoll dress and don't bother to wash your hair, play your guitar terribly, 'eat my shorts' because you are a 'wannabe'.

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas....

Soo my fellow bloggers how was your Christmas? What did you get? I had a wonderful time, just me and my partner this year and we started the day with Champers, Smoked Salmon and Scrambled Eggs...I made these even more luxurious by adding double cream. Delicious and a fantastic start to the day.  


My new camera for blogging! Yes I know most professionals use a Cannon but I need something that is good and not too bulky for everyday use. Plus the benefits of having a professional cameraman as a boyfriend, I have access to the best cameras whenever I like.

All the Clarins. In desperate need of the beauty balm after the cold weather and indulgences this winter. 

Spent most of yesterday playing XBOX games...this was soo much fun! Especially after a few glasses of fizz.

Anyone who is a frequent visitor of our house knows what fun we have at mini torments! And now season two has arrived!

My cat Inca going crazy over the Smoked Salmon.

These books are amazing..., I am feeling so inspired. Next year my blogging posts are going to be 'out there'.  

I made a ginger glazed ham this year thanks to a recipe from Nigella it was truly divine accompanied by  maple syrup parsnips and minty peas. The following hours were spent in a a haze of merriment and  the predictable family calls (always a pleasure of course). I'm so looking forward to an amazing 2013!

Have a great Christmas guys!!!!

Who doesn't like a comedy? In England, specifically the North of the UK we like our humour a little darker and a little bit more local. I recently started re watching  'Psychoville' as first shown on our shores in 2009. How do I describe this show?  Here is a brief description:

'The series revolves around five different characters from different parts of England: David Sowerbutts (played by Pemberton), a serial killer-obsessed man-child who still lives with his mother Maureen (Shearsmith); Mr. Jelly (Shearsmith), an embittered one-handed children's entertainer; Oscar Lomax (Pemberton), a blind millionaire who collects stuffed toy animals; Joy Aston (French), a midwife who treats a practice doll as if it is her real child; and Robert Greenspan (Tompkins), a panto dwarf in love with his Snow White who believes he has the power of telekinesis. All five are connected by a mysterious blackmailer who has sent them a letter each with the message: "I know what you did". The series is named after the title given to The League of Gentlemenwhen the series was sold to Japan and Korea.[3]'

On second viewing...(this is a show you can always watch more than once) the characters have become my new style icons. 

Maureen Sowerbutts: The Pastel Queen. Mix shades of peppermint and salmon with winter florals and the odd broach or two.

Mr Jelly: Alice in Wonderland rip off and I'm sure the inspiration behind Meadham Kirchhoff's fantasy inspired designs. Polka dots, face painting kit, stars and stripes and lashings of tartan. 

Oscar Lomax: Millionaire Fashion Extraordinaire! Velvet Blazers, Large Sunglasses, Masculine Tailoring.  

I don't know who to choose....but I do know I have my makeup kit at the ready.
