Christmas Market at The Roundhouse Derby

October 20th, 2014 § 0

With under a month to go until the doors open at The Roundhouse in Derby for the fifth Christmas Market, it’s time to start the big promotion!

I absolutely love managing the Christmas Market, it’s full of fabulous food and gifts and marks the beginning of the festive season for me.  This year the event is open later on the Saturday… I very excited to turn on the festoon lights and welcome the evening’s festivities!

Here’s what you can expect to find at this year’s Christmas Market:

Over 100 hand selected food & gift exhibitors
Pop-up Vintage Tea Room
Festive Workshops
Prosecco Bar
Hot Food & Drink
VIP Tickets

For full information about the Christmas Market please click here.

We recommend travelling to the Christmas Market by train.  Derby Train Station couldn’t be closer and means you can skip the queue at the car park and enjoy a glass of prosecco.

See you at the Market!

Lucy Sheeran for Chatsworth House

September 15th, 2014 § 0

When I heard that the fabulous Lucy Sheeran illustrations were available at Chatsworth House I was delighted.  So, today I took a special trip over to Chatsworth to see them for myself and I was over the moon to find a full display of cups, cushions, tea towels and tote bags with Lucy’s fabulous illustration of Chatsworth House!

I am now at home drinking a cup of tea from my Lucy Sheeran cup and I couldn’t be more happy for Lucy!  To find out more about Lucy and her work you can visit her website www.lucysheeran.co.uk.

Celebrating 6 years of Fabulous Places

For the first few years I would invite everyone together and celebrate the birthday of Fabulous Places, then life took over and I didn’t quite get around to organising a get together, so this year a celebration was long overdue!

A big thank you to Butterworth Photography for letting me take over their gorgeous studio, it really was a wonderful space that worked so well for the event.  A special thank you to Klara from Birds in the Attic who helped me transform the space into a Pinterest inspired party room!  I absolutely loved working with Klara researching and deciding on the decor and even making paper flowers from a tutorial on Pinterest… great fun!

a trip to No.8 at Bow Boutique

I couldn’t make the launch, so I made sure I took the trip up to Matlock as soon as possible to see the fab new addition to Bow Boutique.  No. 8, located on the first floor, showcases a collection of interiors products, furniture, lighting and styling ideas.

I took some photos during my visit to give you a feel for the space.  If you haven’t popped in for a look see, pop it in your diary for this weekend!  I spotted lots of lovely pieces including some rather gorgeous Orla Kiely plates, amazing wallpaper and a dog with a lamp on its head!

With The Cosy Cup is too difficult to resist, so my visit started with a coffee…
