Homeware Shopping Trip at Ocean Retail Park

If there’s one thing I can’t resist buying it’s homeware. I’m moving house in a couple of weeks and thought I could do with a few new pieces to spruce up my new home (as if I needed an excuse). I headed to Ocean Retail Park* and boy did I find some gems!

Ocean Retail Park is the perfect place to shop for homeware, furniture and DIY supplies if you’re in the Portsmouth area. With shops such as Currys PC World, Oak Furniture Village and Wren Kitchens, you’re bound to find some bang for your buck.

Two Different Worlds | Disney Fan Art Series

Briar Rose

If you follow me on social media you'll have seen that I've been getting back into illustration a lot lately. Being the Disney fanatic that I am, it wasn't long before I delved into some Disney fan art and I couldn't wait to share some with you . These pieces reimagine iconic Disney scenes in locations around Portsmouth. The images combine my photographic backgrounds, with my own digital illustrations of Disney characters. 

As an avid daydreamer, I often find myself wondering what it'd be like if my surroundings became enchanted and I wanted to bring that to life -  magic exists in the most unlikely of places, if only you choose to see it. I still have lots of characters I want to draw up but I hope you all enjoy these for now.

House of Wonderland Jewellery Club

As someone who is obsessed with cute, pastel things and illustration you can imagine how thrilled I was to receive this month’s House of Wonderland Jewellery Club* box. Each month HOW send out themed boxes filled with exclusively designed, handmade items.

The first thing I noticed about this box was how beautifully everything was packaged. Every detail was spot on from the washi tape on the front, to the pastel confetti and twine inside - I couldn’t wait to dive in.

The Olde Young Teahouse | Middlesbrough

Last week I took a trip up North to pay my friends and family a visit. I met up with Abby and Shelley, my friends from art college, for cake and a catch up at The Olde Young Tea House.

The Olde Young Tea House is a charming, local business offering home brewed teas in every flavour imaginable from Japanese sencha to China gunpowder, peach, ‘Sleeping Beauty’ and popcorn. If you’re not much of a tea drinker, fear not because they serve up the most uh-mazing freshly baked cakes and goodies everyday. Past creations have included: strawberry milkshake cake, Wagon Wheel cake, vegan Biscoff cupcakes, Red Velvet rose water cake and gluten free morella cherry bakewell cake.

Building a Bear at Build-a-Bear Workshop

Ever since I was a kid I wanted my own build-a-bear and at the grand age of 22 I finally got my wish. As a birthday treat my friend Amy and I headed to the Build-a-Bear Workshop in Southampton and I cannot tell you how excited I was to finally make my own bear.
