A pretty recipe for Wild Apricity
A pretty recipe for Wild Apricity

I’ve genuinely had a craving for an upside-down cake for months now but lacked the inspiration (and time) to actually get the cake tins out of the cupboard and bake one. It was something to do with eating pineapples towards the end of pregnancy to bring on labour (it didn’t work) and me obviously associating…

Wild Apricity – The new collection
Wild Apricity – The new collection

For winter 2018 we head back towards a more traditional style design with our new Wild Apricity collection, whose delicate colour palette is reflective of the changing seasons. As well as the usual inspiration from vintage artwork, Wild Apricity is also inspired by wandering through the market of my beautiful hometown on chilly Friday mornings…

If you follow me on Instagram or Facebook, you may have noticed that over that past few months, my belly has swollen and stretched to maximum capacity. Matt and I have a big life change just around the corner with arrival of our first baby expected any day now! So this is me signing off for a short…

We are 3!
We are 3!

It’s our birthday! Our little online shop is three years old today and we can’t quite believe it!­ Although I started the Katie Alice brand over 6 years ago, launching the online shop really felt like the business finally had a proper face. Somewhere to connect directly with our customers and provide a place for…

Welcome to Eastern Flora
Welcome to Eastern Flora

New for Spring 2018, The Eastern Flora Collection reflects my love of travelling in Asia, where I have been lucky enough to visit many times both for work and holiday. With a brother in Thailand for almost 20 years and a sister who has only recently left Hong Kong where she has lived for the past 3…

A Blooming Fancy Party Cake

To celebrate the launch of the lovely new Blooming Fancy collection I decided to make a pretty pink party cake topped with a giraffe in a party hat, of course. This would be just the recipe if you are looking for something fun and summery to bake for the big royal wedding at the weekend! I…

Easter weekend new product launches!
Easter weekend new product launches!

Happy Easter weekend! Ignoring the fact that we just had another amber weather warning for snow (come on guys, really?!), it’s kind of starting to feel like winter is on the way out! The clocks have changed and the extra hour of daylight feels like the perfect gift! The blossom is finally starting to burst…

Food Tour of New York
Food Tour of New York

When you go to New York for a week you kind of expect to come back carrying a few extra pounds (especially if you have a rapidly growing baby in your tummy), and last week we certainly embraced the New York food scene as best we could. While out there for work and visiting family,…

Monthly Instagram Competition
Monthly Instagram Competition

Our new monthly Instagram competition has launched! I’ve been an on-and-off Instagram addict for about 5 years now. It’s changed an awful lot in that time but it’s still my favourite social media platform, a wonderful source of inspiration, photos of Italian Greyhounds doing ridiculous things, all round lolz, general life advice and most importantly…

Easy fruit loaf
Easy fruit loaf

A craving for cake and a distinct lack of butter… Sunday evening at around 4:15 – just late enough for the shops to be shut and just early enough for me know that the sudden urge to bake that I’ve just had is not going away in a hurry. What cakes can I bake without…

English Winter Minestrone Soup
English Winter Minestrone Soup

Minestrone soup is one of those glorious dishes that can be completely different depending on what time of year you make it and so which vegetables are in season. Along with carrots, pretty much a given whatever the season, this version includes English potatoes, leeks and onions, beautiful Fenland celery which has a short season…

Christmas Gift Guide 2017
Christmas Gift Guide 2017

Here we are again then! The twinkly lights are flickering faster than false eyelashes at the works Christmas do, the Christmas emails are flooding in thick and fast and the supermarket aisles are stacked high with plastic tubs full of shiny wrapped chocolates (oh how I mourn the disappearance of a proper tin)… Ah yes,…

Pear and Blackberry pie
Pear and Blackberry pie

As winter arrives with its faithful companions; grey skies, muddy fields and icy windscreens, I find myself turning to the comfort of cosy food to get the feeling of warmth that I miss so much outside of summer. There’s nothing ground-breaking about this recipe (apart from the super easy pastry from Call-me-Cupcake), it’s more just a…

Free bags this November!
Free bags this November!

This isn’t really a blog post about Christmas. Because after all it is only the first of November, and although there are them that count down the days to Christmas from as grotesquely early as the 26th of December; for the majority, I believe November is still too premature for tinsel and jingle bells. I do…

Off to Japan…

In just over two weeks I’ll be boarding a flight on my way back to wonderful, wonderful Japan. I’m honoured to have been invited back by Hankyu department store in Osaka to exhibit at their bustling British Fair event, which I first attended back in 2015. The upcoming trip has also provided me with the…

End of summer playlist
End of summer playlist

I don’t know why I’m so surprised about the arrival of Autumn every year. Actually, I suppose it’s not Autumn’s arrival, but rather Summer’s departure that catches me off guard.  As much as I can totally get on board with the chunky knits, hearty bowls of root vegetable stew and roaring log fires, I largely…

Birthday Parties and Cauliflower salads
Birthday Parties and Cauliflower salads

Cooking is still proving somewhat tricky in our current state of non-kitcheness. We’ve now been without basic household appliances such as a kitchen sink, oven, hob, washing machine and worktops for 5 months and a full year has passed since we saw most of our kitchenware. Our favourite bowls, our pour-over coffee maker, our spiralizer,…

Back to school

Learning is important, she says. I only wish I had respected that piece of information a little more when I was at school. Matt and I moved into our first house in Stamford during October 2013 – we obviously made it a priority to test the route to the local pub; exploring a little along…
