v&a: Cult of Beauty

While in London over the weekend I made a visit to the V&A, and had a look at the Cult of Beauty exhibition, which follows the aesthetic movement of art and design from 1860 to 1890. It was such a beautiful exhibition, with pieces from Whistler, William Morris, Dante Gabriel Rossetti, and some amazing ceramics from William De Morgan. There is loads of gorgeous paintings and furniture, ceramics, fabrics, wallpapers the list goes on. It is definitely worth a visit and is on until 17th July so get down their quickly. Check it out on the v&a website.

New Liberty Watches!

On my trip to London at the weekend I popped into to Liberty to look at all the gorgeous things, and spied these amazing watches. I can't decide between the leather strap or the silk one, they are both sooooo lovely, but I will definitely have to have one of them.


This is my third attempt at baking from the hummingbird bakery book, and the most successful. Although the cake didn't rise as much as I would have liked I did have lots of fun decorating them (and eating the icing).

Next I'm going to attempt the carrot cake, fingers crossed!

Here are some pictures of her t-shirts which are available to buy from the shhh website

I really like the nice summery colours and the geo patterns, they also come as women's crop tops. Check out Lucy's website.

Beach Time!

I had a lovely trip to the beach yesterday, it was lovely and sunny but the north sea is still very, very cold.
