I went for afternoon tea with some family for my Mum's birthday to a local manor house. What more appropriate dress to wear than the Yumi bunting, buses, and teapots dress? The print also features umbrellas, but the less said about those the better - we were lucky that the sun came out after our tea, so we had a little stroll around the pretty grounds and I enlisted my Mum as photographer. She did a super job, and was very patient, thanks Mum!

I love a good crime book, particularly one set in a charming English setting - a much beloved genre all of its own these days - so I was keen to review the third book by author D S Nelson in her Blake Hetherington crime series. I ran through my checklist. Small village? Check. Retirement-age investigator? Check. Dropping like flies? Check. Milliner? Ooh, that's a new one! As a lover of vintage fashion I do like hats, so I was very excited to read about a detective-milliner. Here's the blurb about the book:
When a serial killer strikes at the heart of Tuesbury, Blake is soon on the case. Aided by enthusiastic archaeologist Delilah Delibes, and her Jack Russell Bertie, Blake is one more on the path of a murderer. In this tale of voodoo, paganism and deep-rooted traditions, fact and myth merge to blur the line between what is real and what is fiction. Can Blake solve the case or will he become the next victim?

I love French beauty products, and I love natural beauty products. Nuxe always have fantastic offers online, from voucher codes to free gifts, and I shop from them every couple of months. One of my all-time favourite beauty products is the Huile Prodigieuse, by Nuxe. I know people often talk about a must-have, take-to-a-desert-island product, but this one is really it, I promise you!
