All things black & beautiful!

This fab patent leather chesterfield is my new muse after seeing one very similar on the Brit Awards the other evening - i just has to search one out! I want one so badly, but at around £2,000 i think i might need to find a new love of upholstery & recreate my own! (eBay here i come)  or you can splash the cash check out -

Pirate pug'wash ahoy'

Valentines Pie

My very first attempt to make a steak & ale pie as a very heart felt gift! A loved it & I o'so very proud of my pastry skills!

Pug bag - lol words can't describe!

Aztec Spa with a ticklish twist!

I thought as I hate that feeling when you get into the sea & something mysterious brushes past your feet! What better therapy that to plunge my naked feet into a tank of toe sucking fish? ...needless to say I laughed & squealed to the shock of onlookers at first - but as the lil critters went to work I found myself really enjoying it & my feet feel fab!!

What lies beneath... FLESH EATING FISHES

I'm so excited & positively frightened i've just booked my first encounter with the Garra Rufa fishes. Tiny little karp that munch all the dead skin off your feet. For 15mins in the pool its £10 - bargain. I'll post my video at the end of the week.  I found this image on the Daily Express website.

Senorio de jaen - the most fabulous & indulgent looking olive oil i've ever come across all the way from Spain. I was first certain it was vodka when i spied this at the Speciality Fine food Fair in London! how wrong you can be - still beautiful tho.

I've fallen from black to white...

Now as its day four of this New Year 2011, i've decided i'll be putting  a bit of thought to a few resolutions - Watch this space for my list!! lets hope i can stick to them.

All things bright, bold & beautiful!

As i mentioned before the Festive season was upon us i've been indulging in theme gift wrapping & for 2010 we have "All Things BOLD & Beautiful". 

To sum it up we have jingle bells, red parcel tape, red, white & silver gift wrap & SWALK swing tags for that personal touch! The kraft card tags from Paperchase were a great find too - "don't open until the 25th"

My gift @ Christmas

I've been o'so proud of myself this Christmas as i've made peppermint bark as cute little gifts. Who would have known choccie & candy canes where such a great mix!! God bless America!
