I still haven’t worked out who I want to be or what I want to do when I grow up, so on this blog please join me while I try and work it out while keeping child-like creativity alive!  Find home and fashion inspiration; travel and days out; photography, writing and more. Have fun looking around 🙂

Fahrenheit 9/11

Produced, Driected and Starring Michael Moore. Shown on Channel 4, 27th January.
Well I had to watch this didn’t I. I watched Bowling for Columbine and I was shocked by it, and I was expecting to be shocked by this film too. But I wasn’t really – probably because the war was heavily covered by the media already, much of it was already known. The most interesting thing was Bush’s business connections and how much that influenced the running of America. The investigation into that was more compelling than the second half of the film.
Some of it was unnecessary – I felt a lot of time was wasted with things like the OAP who had FBI on his doorstep for talking about the war. (Interesting, yes, but not that important) The sort of things that would go on the Extras on a dvd, but not in the actual film.
The coverage of the soldiers serving in Iraq and the grieving family who lost a son made me angry and sad; but again, nothing I didn’t understand already. However this film is likely to be watched by those in power in America, and if they had chosen to ignore scenes like those in the past, it would hopefully get their attention with this.
It showed most profoundly what a complete idiot President George W Bush is, and it really makes you wonder why anyone at all in America could choose to vote for him again.

Cath Kidston gift ideas for Mothers’ Day
February 28, 2018
I was given this beautiful set of Cath Kidston hand creams and some beautiful Gift Baskets for Women for my birthday last year, and it occurred to me what a lovely gift anything by Cath Kidston would be for Mothering Sunday. Now, oddly enough, this gift also has been listed as one of the best gifts for tattoo artists, which quite left me flummoxed. Either way, her products combine the two things that make the perfect present – something pretty and something practical….
review of things are what you make of them by adam j. kurtz
A review of ‘Things are what you make of them’ – Life advice for Creatives by Adam J. Kurtz
March 21, 2018
Rain kindly bought this book for me for Mothers’ Day, and I’ve since managed to fit in the odd five minutes here and there to read it. That’s one good thing about Things Are What You Make Of Them – it doesn’t take long to read! Oh that makes me sound like I don’t like it, which isn’t true. It’s a book for the current generation who take their entertainment and information in snippets; in bite-size chunks of Instagram stories. There are even perforated edges so you can choose your favourite little pages of words of wisdom to put up on your copper magnet board next to the foiled print that says Eat Sleep Create….
Adagio teas
Tea for people who don’t like tea! (And for those who do.)
October 3, 2018
When Adagio Teas asked if I’d like to work with them, I had to be honest in my reply; that I don’t actually like tea. On my trips to America, this is like saying I’m not actually British, but my main disgruntle is that I couldn’t join in with all the beautiful Instagrams of cups of tea! I do, however like fruit infusions, and the mango flavoured tea I had at the Jane Austen Centre a couple of weeks ago was very nice, so I asked if I could try their flavoured tea….
