Minute & Azimut: Bisham Capsule Collection

Minute & Azimut Bisham CollectionFor the past few weeks, I've been aware of an upcoming brand launch - and a rather exciting one at that.  Since this time last year, a London-based team has been hard at work creating and perfecting an elegant brand of retro-style watches, a journey that reaches an important milestone tomorrow, at which point they'll be launching their Kickstarter campaign! With total pleasure, I can say I've become part of their journey - cheering them on from the sidelines - as the brand has very kindly sent one of their first watches my way to share with you.  Introducing... Minute & Azimut!

Yumi by Lilah

Yumi by Lilah Capsule CollectionAs far as special occasions are concerned, the summertime seems to host the majority of them.  It's during the warmer months of the year that I find myself constantly searching for colourful day dresses, lightweight (and light coloured) outerwear and heels that won't disappear into grass fields!  Weddings, parties, dinners, events - each one prompts the search for a new, striking yet versatile outfit.  Funnily enough, just as wedding invitations began arriving in the post, this ever-so-pretty duo by Yumi entered my life...

The Chelsea Flower Show 2016

chelsea flower show 2016 blog reviewI'd been hearing about how wonderful The Chelsea Flower Show was for quite a few years and so when the opportunity arose to pop along this year, I was both curious and excited!  It was of particular interest as last year I visited the Hampton Court Palace Flower Show and so was keen to see how the two compared.  So, yesterday afternoon I set off under cloudy skies to Chelsea, and joined the flocks of people travelling in to the show, each ready to immerse themselves in a sea of flowers...

Unique Designs, Places of Mine...

Cabuxa medium sized portfolio bag gardenUnintentionally, I can see my life becoming more heavily inspired by nature than ever before.  It creeps its way in through garden walks, glasshouses filled with tropical plants, sugar crafted flowers on top of cakes and in this instance, a portfolio bag* by Cabuxa titled 'The Garden of the Dreams'.  As you may have cottoned on by now, I'm more than happy to dive into an abundance of green leaves and flowers.  So, with this in mind, I set off to one of my favourite glasshouses in the South to introduce this busy portfolio bag to the world of humidifiers and colourful orchids...

A Journey to Snowshill Manor

Snowshill Manor and Gardens review
After a quaint and cosy mid-week stay at Colwall Park Hotel last week, the long and winding roads were calling for an afternoon with the windows down.  Surprisingly, I've never before visited the picturesque area, and so the journey was packed full with 'oohs' and 'aahs'.  Colwall is a village on the west outskirts of the Malvern Hills and though I may not know what it looks like through a downpour, I can certainly vouch for its beauty on a warm, sunny day!  Juice stations and bluebell fields were on the cards before reaching Snowshill Manor, a Cotswold manor full with treasures collected over a lifetime by Charles Wade...
