DIY WEDDING | Make up lesson plus what I wore

When you're planning a wedding at quite short notice (in our case because my lovely stepson James was moving abroad for two years), most of the top suppliers will inevitably be booked up already. I spent ages trying to find a make-up artist who wasn't but to no avail. The other complication was that our wedding ceremony and the reception were on subsequent days, so I would've had to pick one - do I want professional make up for the formal pics or would I rather look my best for the party?

DIY WEDDING | How to make your own wedding rings in Bristol

With just two days to go until our wedding, I should definitely be panicking now and not writing a blog post. Let's just say this is a cathartic and soothing distraction from the mayhem around us, as I talk you through the absolutely brilliant experience we had a few weeks back making our own wedding rings.

Swallows' Flight | A slice of summer in Devon's South Hams

Now that we're past midsummer and the nights will begin to get longer again (thanks winter-loving friend who reminded me of this on Friday!), the possibility of a super summer like last year is fast slipping through our fingers. This month has been wall-to-wall rain, which has made me extra grateful for that sun-soaked Easter weekend we enjoyed in Devon a few months back.

A summer garden update

When you have pale English rose skin like mine, finding shade in the summer is a necessity. We've spent the past few weekends waking the garden up from its wintry slumber - chopping back dead branches, clearing leaves, and planting.

Community Business Weekend part three | Wild Outdoors Day at Windmill Hill City Farm

As any right-minded Bristolian will know, Windmill Hill City Farm is an institution. Whether you want an allotment or a nursery place, a place to hang with your toddler or a game of five-a-side, City Farm does it all.

Community Business Weekend part two | Bristol Ferry Boats

Those of us who are Bristolians of a certain age remember the Harbourside before it was trendy (and still use the word trendy). When I was a kid, the area was a working dock and certainly not somewhere you’d head to for a cheeky post-work Aperol Spritz. The area has changed so much and is now our home - I’m happy every day that I look out over the water and see boats chugging by.
