Betty Magazine Launch.

Hooray for Betty Magazine! Issue 2 was launched at the Lomography Store in Spitalfields last week, and we were spoilt with endless Pick'n'Mix and cake pops and delightful Malibu cocktails...not only were we visually treated by the lovely surroundings, but we were played a little set by Peter and Kerry

The magazine itself is full of lovely features, great work from Calico Melton as lead illustrator... Broadway Market has its own double page and the crafty Dalston Darlings have their say too. I have even already tried out some of the tasty recipes and recommendations....

Thank you to Charlotte, hostess with the mostess and editor...

Make sure you get your copy here.

Once Wed Magazine.

 Hooray for Once Wed Magazine! After a wonderfully inspiring blog, it has finally transitioned into print, and I was fortunate enough to be asked to contribute with my wedding stationery. It is filled with stunning photography, framed only by white space and minimal text. It makes even my cynical self want to start making colour schemes and start back combing my hair for my imaginary big day....

Happy Menocal's beautiful illustrations were also featured, I recommend a visit to her website here.

The Diamond Jubilee.

Well it's been a long time since my last post, but things have been very busy running up to the Jubilee! My Royal candles have been selling quicker than I can make them at Broadway Market, and to mark the wondrous occasion I was asked to have a stall at the Diamond Jubilee Festival at Battersea Park. 
The atmosphere was still marvellous despite the rain, and I would like to say thank you to all the lovely customers and friends who kept me going throughout the day, I was stuffed with cucumber sandwiches and cheese and pineapple sticks, and the candles were still selling even when they were eventually sat in puddles on my stall! I loved seeing so many of my favourite sellers there, including Hunted and Stuffed and many others in the excellently curated Vintage Village, Elle and the Pocket Belles, and my favourite Brass Roots kept me moving around with their jazzy music.
Hemingway and team did an incredible job putting on such an amazing event for 90, 000 people, I'm very sad that I cant make it to their Vintage Festival this year...
