Christmas is upon us!

Yes, only 2 weeks until Christmas! Can you believe it?! Gosh, it’s come round quick hasn’t it?

I’ve been crazy busy of late: what with exhibiting at Brick Lane Market aswell as working, organising my boyfriends 40th birthday (which is next weekend), moving house, making and distributing lots of Christmas orders, aswell as preparing and buying Christmas gifts. In addition, I’m contributing to a cookery competition, in which I’m baking a raspberry and rose sponge cake to commemorate my late Aunt Cynthia who died this time last year. She was an amazing chef, who taught and nurtured all of us into loving, and cooking good food.

Treasury Feature 11/11/13

Hi All!

I hope that whatever you did this weekend, it was a memorable one.
I had a nice relaxing weekend at home with my boyfriend. We watched loads of episodes of Breaking Bad (love it!) and my sister stayed over on Friday night and brought her freshly baked banana and walnut loaf with her. Mmmmm!

I spent at least 4 hours on Sunday morning working on product photography but in the end I wasn’t happy with any of the images as they all had a blue tint to them (probably something to do with the camera settings), alas I will have to do them all again – what fun! (not).

I am in 4 Treasurys this week! The first one is entitled “I’m not always a pink kind of girl” – which I can vouch for as I’m not a particularly pinky girl either, however I do like blood red, ox red, burgundy (all very similar I know, hehe) and blush pink and they all feature in this lovely treasury. My blush pink candle “Anniversary” is featured here.

Homegrown

The Sunday Markets in Brick Lane Market have a wonderful collection of original, antique, handmade, vintage, wonderfully creative finds, a lot of which you won’t find anywhere else in London. Or why not commission a bespoke creation from a local independent artist/designer-maker? – Take a stroll down to the infamous Columbia Road flower market to pick up some beautiful, fragrant flowers? Or to the food market to taste some tasty food from faraway exotic climes?

I love Brick Lane Market for it’s ability to infuse the uber-cool, with originality and sophistication so effortlessly. The Secret Societe’ fuses art and science to create handmade fragrance, beauty and skincare products and we think that the Homegrown Market in particular, which showcases a collection from independent designer-makers in the UK, is the perfect place for us to begin our journey!

So, if your struggling to decide what to buy for your best friend, your Mum, your sister, your brother, your Dad, your husband (phew!), then come and see us at the HomeGrown Market this Sunday 20th October – we just might have the perfect gift!

The HomeGrown Market is situated in Elys Yard, which is on the corner of Hanbury Street and Brick Lane. Walk through UpMarket – another interesting market with a huge variety of food, lifestyle, accessories and fashion – and you will see the HomeGrown Market just up the small ramp. There is also a sitting down area if you need to rest your feet after a hard days shop!

We’ll be there from 10:00 am until 5:00 pm.

I’m baaaaaack!

Hi Bloggee’s and Bloggettes,

How the heck are you?!

I’ve just returned from the beautiful white isles of Ibiza, and I had a truly a-mazing time there. The restuarants, the nightlife, the beaches, all coupled with the beautiful scenery and lovely weather left me feeling very pampered and relaxed indeed.

Alas, I am back in London Town now and getting prepped for my foray into the Crafty Fox Market in Brixton on Sunday 6th October. It will be my first time exhibiting with the Crafty Fox team and I’m really excited as they always have a varied selection of some of the best designer-makers in London, with a great DJ spinning tracks allday and even a Tea Room. And best of all: It’s free!

Yes, it’s FREE!

So come on down (children are welcome too) on Sunday 6th October at the Dogstar in Brixton to smell my wonderfully fragrant wares and see some of the other amazing handmade items that will be sold there too. It’s going to be a blast!!
