Ace Hotel London – Shoreditch Stopover

Luther hits Shoreditch and The Ace Hotel London A few weeks ago we stayed over in London. Luther had two days modelling work in East London so we made the Ace Hotel London in Shoreditch our base. I have to say, I really enjoyed staying in London, particularly as a non- resident. I lived in London…

The Bonnie Mobster goes on Holiday

I’ve got a new post up on The Bonnie Mob blog…. It’s been a busy time in the Frankie and the Lamb household. Luther turned one, started walking, and swiftly turned into a toddler… We hit the shores of Tenerife last month. Luther got to go in an outdoor pool, eat calamari for the first…

Boden Casting at Worx Studios

H A L L O W E E N

Dartmoor Delights at Bovey Castle

Our trip into Dartmoor National Park was bathed in sunshine. We stopped for a quick lunch in Mortonhampstead and bought a paper bag of sweets from a jar at the newsagents.

Pregnancy and the Wedding Dress – Gilly Woo Couture 

My wedding dress was not something I had ever given much thought to. I think i’d always imagined running off and getting married on a beach so looking at styles for a proper dress was daunting. I had no doubts on where to go to get my dress made. Gill Cockwell, who runs Gilly Woo,…

A Somerset Girl Becomes Mrs – Our Wedding 

It’s been a year since our wedding, and it was a truly glorious day! We got engaged in January last year and neither of us wanted to wait over a year to get married, so picked 26th September as the latest Saturday that might offer up some late Summer weather – so nine months to…
