Katie Alice
Berry Full Smoothie
Berry Full Smoothie

I know we’re supposed to be stuffing our smoothies with as much spinach, kale and spirulina powder as possible these days, and I do usually opt for a greener smoothie when I make them. But, let’s be honest; no matter how much we try to convince ourselves that they “taste quite nice actually” they are…

Boozy banana and salt chocolate pancakes
Boozy banana and salt chocolate pancakes

Boozy poached banana and salted chocolate pancakes Some grown up pancakes for Shrove Tuesday. These are especially good if you’re giving up either alcohol or chocolate for lent. Or if your not giving anything up but just really like chocolate and banana pancakes. And rum. I’d never really thought about poaching a banana before until…

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…

Festival Folk is coming…
Festival Folk is coming…

I’m a terrible decision maker. I worry in an unreasonable manor that I’ll make the wrong choice, and this can really apply to just about anything. “Should I go for an all-white colour scheme in the hallway or should I go for dark and moody?” “Should I invest savings into property or into my business?”…

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…

Christmas Mixtape
Christmas Mixtape

Are you feeling Christmas-y yet? There’s nothing quite like a festive melody to really get you in the Christmas spirit. I find that no matter how scrooge-like I might be feeling at any particular time, just the very opening drumroll of ‘Stop the Cavalry’ by Jona Lewie is enough to get me reaching for the…

Christmas Countdown
Christmas Countdown

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…

Homemade hot chocolate and spiced banana bread
Homemade hot chocolate and spiced banana bread

Cheering up the chills of winter It’s November 29th. The winter sun is trying it’s damned hardest to warm us all up but there’s only so high a sun can reach during these months and it seems it’s barely lifted a leg over the gate post before it’s time to climb back down to the…

Pumpkin bread
Pumpkin bread

I think I can speak for most amatuer bakers when I say that pulling a beautiful loaf of homemade bread out the oven is one of the most satisfying feelings in baking life. Seeing that welcome crack of the crust along the top, then tapping its floury bottom and hearing the hollow thud of a…

Halloween cake
Halloween cake

Pumpkin and dulche de leche cream cheese 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…

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…

Pretty English Garden
Pretty English Garden

The late spring flowers are just starting to retire for the year with the clematis montana no longer at its best and the lilac’s ruffles turning weary and brown. Not that I’m complaining – far from it because all this means that summer is right on our doorstep. Wonderful, wonderful summer who I miss so…

I finally made the trip to Hastings last weekend to visit one of my best friends who bought a house down there two and half years ago. I know – two and half years – waaaaaay overdue. She had as she put it “a free house” (her beau was in Italy) although I’m not sure…

Laid back Spring music
Laid back Spring music

I can’t imagine life without music. If I’m not belting out old favourites from iTunes in my car I’m sneakily scouring Spotify for new music when I should really be finishing my latest blog post. It’s on when I’m cooking, it’s on when I’m working and going to gigs and festivals is just about one…

Vintage Indigo is coming
Vintage Indigo is coming

I get so excited when we’re about to launch a new collection. Well, excited and nervous/self-conscious in equal parts really. It can be quite a lengthy process developing new products and new collections – at the moment for example I’m working in ideas for Autumn/Winter 2017 already! So it’s always lovely to finally get to…
