NedaFetcham031

As you have probably noticed, I do loads of styled bridal shoots – I love collaborating with fellow creatives in the wedding industry, and it’s loads of fun pushing my creative boundaries to create pieces to go with a particular style, theme or colour scheme. You can see some of my previous styled shoots here ,…

A Surprise in My Marriage

Polkadot onepiece

My husband blindsided me the other day. The conversation went something like this: “You know we’re off to Portugal next month, and I’d kind of like to get a new swimsuit for the trip. I’ve seen these really lovely ones at j.crew that are one-pieces, but you know, really sexy one-pieces not like frumpy one-pieces….

Wise Words: Douglas Adams

“Everything that’s already in the world when you’re born is just normal, suggested Adams. Anything created between birth and the age of 30 is incredibly exciting and creative and with any luck you can make a career out of it. But whatever is invented after you’ve turned 30 is against the natural order of things…

Me at the Eastbourne Half Marathon last year   As you may have read in my New Year’s post on dieting earlier this year, I love to run. I have been running on a reasonably serious basis for about 6 years now, and have run the London Marathon every year in that period. I run…

A Lesson in Scheduling from Henry Miller

Tropic of Cancer

A friend posted a copy of Henry Miller’s work schedule from 1932-1933 on Facebook the other day, and it struck me how little has changed in 80-odd years. We think our lives are so different with everything the noughties has brought us – twitter, Facebook, pinterest and all the rest. Turns out things aren’t so very…

Some Thoughts on Date Night

  Earlier this week, my husband and I were mooting the idea of going out together once a week. On a date, if you will. You see, with the huge amount of time, focus and effort that goes into growing a business (as well as working a dayjob), we were starting to see less and…

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I spent Saturday morning this weekend surrounded by Ikea chaos. Bolts, allen keys, boards, screws, those weird things that go on the other end of screws that Ikea seems to have invented to enable us to put together shelves with zero carpentry experience (hurrah Ikea!)… but at the end of the morning, I had a…
