I went out with my lovely friend Natalie yesterday of 'of tea, lace and sailboats (and other lovely things)'. We studied together in my first year at university at Glyndwr University, which at the time was referred to as NEWI. We have since then both carried on to become part time (hoping to be full time) jewellers and freelance creatives.
I am moving back up north so leaving Natalie and yesterday she gave me one of her lovely brooches as a leaving present it's my favourite one, which she remembered, you can see and buy her work here. I'll miss you Nat's xxo

During my brief time living here in Hove/Brighton, I have had the pleasure of working in Ethel's kitchen. Yesterday was my last day, as I move back up North in two weeks I decided to explore during the last few weeks of being here. If I ever open a cafe, Ethel's Kitchen would definitely be a large part of my inspiration. Thank you to everyone I have worked with over the months for making my time lovely and to all the regulars that welcomed me to Hove xxo

I watched this film the other day by Czech film director Jaromil Jireš and the film is based on the book by surrealist writer Vítězslav Nezval .
I first became aware of the existence of the film through listening to a broadcast song 'Valerie' which you can watch in the blog post above, inspired by 'Valerie and her week of wonder'. The sound track to the film is amazingly surreal and fantastical, the film captures what I feel is a confusing time in a girls adolescence and projects it through imagery that boarders between fairy tale and dark fantasy. Definitely worth watching xxo

I am currently building my own website which is a great experience, I am hoping to have it finished by the end of the month. I'll keep you posted.
Whilst out driving the other day I drove past someone selling their 'hedge veg' for 50p. Bought a marrow and tonight I'm going to make marrow and blue cheese soup xxo
