White Chocolate and Spiced Pumpkin Blondies for Halloween 🎃

It’s the final of The Great British Bake Off tonight and what better way to celebrate than with a tray of delicious blondies! Actually I’ve been craving blondies all month – it’s just a happy accident that I’ve finally made them today! Always good to sneak a bit of veg into your bakes too, although…

Cardamom Easter biscuits with blood orange icing
Cardamom Easter biscuits with blood orange icing

I can’t remember the last time I made biscuits at home! When you’re struggling to find enough hours in the day anyway, it doesn’t really seem like an appropriate use of my time. But actually making these last week reminded me that not only are they extremely quick and easy to make, but it’s also…

Festive Sugar Plums
Festive Sugar Plums

With the very festive new adaption of The Nutcracker out at the cinema this Christmas, I got thinking about The Sugar Plum Fairy and wondering what sugar plums actually are. It was always one of my favourite stories as a child but it’s only been this year that I’ve actually questioned it. The answer, according…

Christmas Gift Guide 2018
Christmas Gift Guide 2018

I can’t quite believe it’s Christmas gift guide time again already! It honestly feels like just a couple of weeks ago I was writing last year’s blog post! This time last year I secretly had a tiny little baby growing in my tummy and this year, as I’m writing this she is snoring away in…

🎃 Pumpkin soup for Halloween 🎃
🎃 Pumpkin soup for Halloween 🎃

…and other winter days. Let’s assume that between changing nappies and feeding a baby (that seems to be in the midst of a rather serious growth spurt) that I’m not going to carve a pumpkin for Halloween this year. Instead I’m sharing one of my favourite soup recipes with you 🎃 It’s another one of…

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…

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…

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…

Back to school
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…

Pimm’s and an Ode to Wimbledon
Pimm’s and an Ode to Wimbledon

Can you believe it’s almost July? Mid-summer really is my favourite time of year; festival season, BBQ season, pretty dresses and no socks season. I’d take all the wasps in Lincolnshire over the cold and wet winter months any day of the year. July also means another one of my favorite summer events – Wimbledon.…

A calm Easter weekend?
A calm Easter weekend?

We are deep in the middle of a huge house makeover and kitchen extension project at the moment. This poor Victorian semi doesn’t quite know what’s hit it and as a result all of our stuff has been completely misplaced. The studio at the bottom of the garden is just a broken window away from…

Pink Rhubarb, Pink Everything
Pink Rhubarb, Pink Everything

Pink Rhubarb, Pink Everything My current obsession with pink shows no sign of slowing down; if anything, it’s got mildly worse. And while I try to come up with new ways to convince Matt that it’s a good idea to paint at least one of the walls in the kitchen a rosy hue, I’ve had…

Goodbye 2016 and hello 2017
Goodbye 2016 and hello 2017

Wishing all our wonderful customers a happy, healthy and prosperous 2017 The tinsel and baubles are boxed up and awaiting their journey to the loft, the wreath is propped up stubbornly by the back door and only Bounty’s remain in the tub of Celebration’s. This of course means the very dregs of Christmas are almost…

Pinch punch first of the BEST MONTH OF THE YEAR! Would you believe we’re at December again? Now begins the rapid decent to the most over-indulgent day of the year and in case you haven’t tied up all those loose ends of Christmas shopping yet (or like me haven’t started), we’re going to be running…

Halloween cake
Halloween cake

It has been so long since I last baked a cake. So, so long. I guess it’s something to do with trying to eat healthy as I’m definitely one of those bakers that needs multiple tasters throughout the whole cooking process – raw eggs do not intimidate me as much as they perhaps should. And…

Autumn Edit
Autumn Edit

Is anyone else starting to get really excited about wearing big fluffy jumpers, eating over-sized game pie’s and not worrying about whether or not you remembered to shave your legs? Don’t get me wrong, I’m definitely a summer girl but there is something enchanting about Autumn and all the wonderful richness that comes along with…

A new season and a new home
A new season and a new home

Bar the odd day or two and the freak heatwave we’re due this week, the past few weeks have begun to feel decidedly more Autumnal. The blazing sunny days we admire through the window carry a surprising nip in the wind and nights are becoming darker at their inevitable yet terrifying speed. And as England…
