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 🙂

The Plough

A traditional pub/restaurant in Ivy Hatch, near Ightam, Kent.

It was a Thursday evening and there was only us and an elderly couple eating at The Plough throughout the whole evening. Perhaps it was more quiet than normal because it was election day. Anyway, it is a lovely looking pub and restaurant and we could have chosen to sit by the log fire or in the conservatory, so we went in the conservatory where we could see all the flowers outside. I loved the extra touches like the fact that the flowers in the vases were real, and there were burning candles all round the room; it was really pretty.
The menu had a good selection to choose from; though Chris’s steak portion was a bit small. I had duck in a plum sauce and it was delicious – I really enjoyed it. It is not a family restaurant though – there was no kid’s menu. Though they were given a generous portion of Sausages and mash from the lunch menu and only charged half price for it. There’s also no playground or garden to play in or anything like that.
It also turned out to be quite pricy. Although my duck was £10, which was quite reasonable, I had to pay an extra £1.50 for the vegetables (bit of a cheek I think) and the puddings were £4.50 each – not even a cheaper price for the ice-cream option. But if you’ve got the money to spend, for adults this would be a very nice place to eat.

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….
Making a floral display with vintage bottles
How to make an easy but impressive floral display for the whole year
October 9, 2017
I have a thing for old bottles. Whenever I see one in a flea market or boot sale, I always pick it up; wonder what it once held and who in its history has owned it; but end up putting it down again because I’ve never had a reason to buy it (aren’t I good?!). However, I’ve finally thought of a reason to buy a whole load of them! And because I was impatient, I bought a job lot of vintage clear glass bottles, but actually it would’ve been fun to build up the collection over time, picking one up here and there. I thought this would be a nice quick and easy blog post just sharing my flower arrangement idea, but I ended up being pulled into the time-draining vortex of the internet discovering all sorts of things about old bottles! Did you know there are collectors’ clubs and events all over the country? If I had time for another hobby, I can see that vintage bottle collecting could become one of them!…..
Tarte eyeshadow palette review
A review of the Tarte Tarteist Amazonian Clay eyeshadow palette
November 14, 2017
I am constantly on the hunt for a matte eyeshadow palette, and if I see one, I will probably buy it! I honestly don’t know why they aren’t more popular, because I just cannot get on with an ordinary eye shadow! I had a little splurge on make-up a couple of years ago and talked about my issues with the No7 eyeshadows and the Maybelline eyeshadows that I bought. They simply do not look good on me and the pigmentation is rubbish. I decided it was about time I stopped faffing about with mid-range High Street make-up and actually spend some money….
