  • Ahhh hooray!

    Think I’ll have to go for the online workshop this time round but that’s brilliant because I’ve been looking for an online course to cover more or less these topics. Very glad that you’re addressing light and camera settings – both areas that I definitely need to learn about and work on. Hope to take an in person course with you next time!

    Oh, by the way…I’m off to the Thorisson’s again in October!!!

    And also, I thought I’d signed up to receive emails re course from you but didn’t receive one. Only saying in case there’s an issue with your mailing list provider that you’re unaware of. Alternatively.., it’ll turn out that I never did sign up – doh!

    All the best

I can’t believe April is over, that we are a third of the way through 2016?!

It’s been a crammed one over here, we had a short trip, taking our first ‘holiday’ in 4 years, celebrating our 10th wedding anniversary (!) and sprinkling it with a little work just because if you have 72 hours away from your children you really, really need to make the most of it. We had a brilliant time in Berlin, somewhere that came highly recommended and although I can’t hail this as a typically pretty or beautiful city we loved it for it’s grit and rawness and it really does have great food. I will be posting a series of travel stories from our trip very soon.berlin_373


We joined the National Trust this month, visiting Osterley Park, Ham House & Fenton House throughout April, Eden & Haven, just love wild open spaces, exploring gardens, sitting in deck chairs and declaring ‘this it the life’ before running off into a blue bell patch. Eden had a lovely chat with the ladies planting potatoes in Ham House’s kitchen garden and loves the neat rows of vegetables growing. Whilst it’s a bit of an investment, I’m loving the access into these new and interesting worlds and I think it’s definitely going to be worth it.


Osterley_046 copyOsterley_078 copyWork has been really busy, isn’t it always? There’s a review of the Farm Girl Cafe over on Betty Magazine, definitely add this to your brunch list if you are in the Notting Hill area


I’m also collaborating with JORD watches, they make the most beautiful wooden watches and if you fancy a discount code to get your own visit this link here


I’ve shot so much this month but most of it I can’t quite share with you yet. Soon I hope!

I hope your April has been wonderful and you are looking forward to May and much more sunshine and less hail (!), we have our first family holiday coming up – wish us luck!! See you on the other side xx

p.s the first image is of a rose and pomegranate crème pot, recipe soon!



If you are looking to add to your indoor plant collection, or start one, like we did, then I can’t really recommend a more beautiful or inspiring place to shop than The Conservatory Archives.

Newly opened on the Hackney Road in London, the space is charming, captivating and filled with not only beautiful botanicals but envy inducing vintage furniture. Every wall, shelf and surface is home to something exquisite and whilst I normally take the back seat when it comes to gardening and growing, Michael would you believe has a real love of gardening and floral knowledge. I felt truly excited about creating an indoor garden. Perfect for us at the moment as we have no outdoor space.

I came away with a small start, a string of pearls succulent which owner Jin, assured me was pretty resilient and preferred to be under-watered, a task I’m sure I can achieve!

I loved this place, if you are passing do visit and give a home to a plant or two.

I already know I will be back.


we got this little guy, Eden named him Sabriseah. (I know…)
