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 🙂

Ice Princess

Starring Joan Cusack, Kim Cattrall (Sex and the city), Michelle Trachtenberg (Buffy), Hayden Panettiere…
Ahh what a lovely film this is! Definitely a young girl’s chick flick – I would feel sorry for any boy made to sit through this film! Anyway, it is a lovely, straightforward film, though a little predictable.
A geeky physics student chooses to study ice-skaters and their movements for a project and ends up learning to skate herself. Using her own formulas she learns quickly and enters some big competitions. Obviously she has to choose between a Harvard scholarship and ice-skating; and comes up against her feminist Mum. Oh and there’s a little bit of romance as well.
You certainly don’t have to be interested in ice-skating to like this film. I was actually surprised at the lack of musical montages of skating routines. There’s no amazing cinematography or fantastic script either, but it’s a nice Sleepover and ice-cream type film. And my 9 year old loved it as it felt like a teenage film because the characters were 17, but there was nothing in it at all that would make it unsuitable for that age.

We have also had it in our minds to build a verandah at the back of the house, leaning against the kitchen wall. However, each spring has come along and we’ve ended up spending any spare money we’ve had on a holiday instead. So it hasn’t happened, but the idea was still there, and it made a choice on the garden furniture difficult to make…..
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….
