Our friend Mandy at Swingletree China shares her gorgeous Vintage china gallery with us. Like us she is as busy as ever, not only because we're bang in the middle of this year's Wedding Season, but also because Vintage is such a fun way to have a party for brides and hens alike.
Our friends over at Simply Bridal share their tips and tricks for comfortable yet sexy wedding lingerie. Can anyone cram their face with wedding cake whilst wearing a corset? Is it acceptable to wear Spanx on the Big Night?
If anyone has ever had the urge to strip off completely, mount a Boris Bike and fly through the streets of London like a bat out of hell, then now is your chance!

Such a huge amount of Chocolate Making Workshops has meant that Oli and Coral have both grabbed a golden ticket straight to the top of our Teacher of the Month listing!

Last weekend saw our first Cupcake Decorating and Vintage Afternoon Tea party of the season. I delight in anything involving a spot of sugar-craft so became rather over-excited when pictures of these sweet treats popped into my inbox on a bleak Monday morning.
What happens when a hen party company (obviously not Polestars) organises a Life Drawing session with just one man doubling as the tutor and the model? Chaos, bad hen-management and things dangling all over the shop, that’s what!
