Blogger Shoot with Makes It Simple | Coral Room

Last month Monika from Makes It Simple and I did a shoot at the Coral Room. It's a beautiful (coral) art deco bar and restaurant in Bloomsbury. Designed by the acclaimed Martin Brudnizki, the vibrant grand salon bar is definitely worth a visit. It's a great place to meet up for breakfast/brunch or just to enjoy a nice cup of coffee while working on your next blog post.

Blogger Shoot with In High Fashion Laune | Notting Hill

I absolutely love this set of photos from my shoot with In High Fashion Laune a few weeks ago. We met in Notting Hill one morning, trying to catch the golden hour. It's probably on of my top 3 shoots from the last 12 months.

What do you think?

Take care. x

Wedding Top Tips - Cake | Claire's Sweet Temptations

Claire's Sweet Temptations - Wedding Top Tips

This is the 5th installment of my blog series "Wedding Top Tips". It's all about cake this time as I'm interviewing Claire from Claire's Sweet Temptations. 

Tell us a bit more about your company and how it came about?

I make bespoke cakes for all occasions, predominantly weddings. I've baked all my life, but decided to turn my passion into a business 5 years ago. Now I'm an award winning cake artist providing wedding cakes all over the UK. Everything is done in my studio in a pink house by the sea in Cornwall, and everything is made by me, for you.

What has been the best or most memorable wedding you've worked on so far?

Probably a Death Star! That was fun. Although my favourite to make is sugar flowers, I love cakes dripping in flowers, they are so romantic. Saying that you can do almost anything in sugar, and it's nice to make the cake reflect you as a couple.

What are your 2 top tips for brides and grooms to be?

Book early! Don't listen to the advice that 4 months is the lead time on cakes. I've got 2019 bookings already. Even if you're not sure what you want, still get a deposit down to secure the your chosen cake maker. Have what you want, even if it's a bit out there. The cake is a great way to have fun and really personalise your wedding.

Rome Trip | September 2017

So this ha been a long time coming, 4 months to be precise. I've only now had a the chance to go through the photos from my Rome trip back in September.

My friend Tamara and I went mid September for 4 nights and neither of us has been to Rome before. We were so lucky with the weather with a high of 27 degrees (Celsius). We even got a little sunburned! 

The first full day we went to see the Vatican Museum and St. Peters Basilica. It's breathtaking, despite it being a super busy place. We booked a guided tour to get lots of background information and little stories, which was way better than just walking around aimlessly and not know what you are actually looking at. The Sistine Chapel with paintings of Michelangelo was also part of the tour, though taking pictures was not allowed. We stared at it for about 30 min and it just amazed me how someone can create something so beautiful and with so much attention to detail so many centuries ago and we are still able to admire their art today.

On that day I also had the pleasure to eat the best Spaghetti Carbonara I've ever had in my life! We found the little restaurant with about 8 tables just a short walk away from the St. Peters Basilica in a more residential area. Sooooo good! 

The next day we did a round trip with a shop on and off bus tour and wandered through the city, visiting the Spanish Steps, the Pantheon and enjoying some gelato at the Trevi Fountain. Unfortunately my battery died early on, so I only have a few good photos and took the rest on my iPhone.

On our last full day in Rome we did another guided tour, seeing the Colosseum, Palatine Hill and the Roman Forum. It was such a beautiful day with blue sky and we ended the tour during sunset, which made for some awesome photos!

We basically spent the trip visiting all the major places and eating our body weight in Carbonara, Gelato and Tiramisu. All in all an awesome trip!!! :)
