As a Bristol based journalist and blogger, I must give a well deserved nod to one of the best up and coming blogs on the fashion circuit: Bristol Fashionista – not only is it sharp, witty and on the nail when it comes to fashion know-how, it is THE place to go to get a good dose of style, Bristol fashion.
If you are local to the Bris, or even if you’re not, check ee out.
I just bought a set of these white Matryoshka measuring cups for £9.99 at Bristol’s coolest gift-shop-type -emporium ‘Iota’ – it doesn’t have a website, but does have a Facebook page. Now I can bake my cakes in style! But while I was browsing for an online supplier, I came across Fred & Friends – a rather quirky little shop that stocks unsual and humorous products to make your home look good and put a smile on your chops.
I particularly like the ‘Foot in the door’ door stop (frustratingly prices are not listed next to the product – i believe you have to purchase through their outlets including Amazon and Fredflare.com) but well worth a browse.
I also found some other Matryoshka measuring cups in technicolour, but for quite a bit more (£28) at Antropologie:
I am totally in love with their bedding section too…have a look (if you dare!) Also in their sale section, they have this exquisite tea set, plucked from the very depths of the ocean! Feel like a mermaid while having a brew…only £7!
One last Matryoshka inspired bit of loveliness: How about this bunting? Cute eh? It costs £22 and can be found in Hunky Dory Home.
And their beautiful cushion too…(£22) Now that’s enough 🙂
Well, our little shoot has been making the headlines – this time in Venue magazine. It’s great to see the images in print even though our other feature has not yet been published – Elsie Riley’s owner, Katie was so pleased with the pix that she is using then as her own promotional images now – praise indeed!
Here are a few sneaky pix from last weekend’s photoshoot at Elsie Riley. We sweltered in the heat down in the basement and I feared the make-up I’d so carefully applied was going to melt off, but the models, Katrina and Rhea were just brilliant, helped of course by the excellent photographer of Elena Goodrum. I hope you enjoy them!

I just spotted this super-cute egg cup over on The Secret Shopping blog and want one. It’s called Sir Randolf and is part of a collection by Camila Prada. I will be heading over to the Clifton Arcade in Bristol to grab one of these (only £9 from Soma.) It will make a welcome edition to my breakfast table and imagine how cute Sir Randolf will look nestled amongst some toast soldiers!
