Recently, I was given The Vintage Tea Party Book. Though I hadn’t heard of it before, I did the unthinkable (!) and judged a book by its beautifully illustrated cover. I knew I was going to love it.

Thankfully, I’m not eating my words! Written by vintage goddess Angel Adoree (of Dragon’s Den and Vintage Patisserie fame), this book covers everything from tea party recipes, to vintage styling, to invitations, to vintage hair – from brunch to dinner time. The book is a visual treat in itself. I have yet to try a recipe but – from what the internet has been telling me – all of the results are as delicious as the photos.

To share the love, I’ve got a copy of The Vintage Tea Party Book to give away to one lucky reader!

Good luck! xo

marks and spencers accessories

I was recently invited to preview Marks & Spencer’s Autumn/Winter 2011 accessories collection via a Mad Hatter’s Tea Party. We’re talking tea, cakes, Prosecco, and a room full of shoes, jewellery, handbags, hats, and more at ridiculously affordable price points.

With all of the accessories split into four categories – Boy Meets Girl (doctors bags galore!), Nordic Narnia (frosted yet cozy), Global Traveller (gorgeous, colourful items) and Wilderness (faux fur for all!) – you would expect there would be a category you didn’t favor as much. Not the case. All four were full of fashionable, quality items.

Set up in homage to Alice in Wonderland‘s ‘eat me‘ tags, everything was tagged and asking you to feel it. With reason. I urge you to go to an M&S now and stroke your way through the accessories department.
