Hello!

Welcome! This is my space to ramble about books, travel, tea and everything in between. 

The books on my Christmas list

The books on my Christmas list

Yes that time is fast approaching and I thought I would share the books on my list that might provide a little inspiration if you are like me being badgered for said list... 

  • 99 Glimpses of Princess Margaret, Craig Brown - I absolutely adore The Crown and Vanessa Kirby's portrayal of the party Princess. This takes a look at one of the most glamorous yet unhappy lady and her stylish life. 
  • The Modern Cook’s Year, Anna Jones -  this is a seriously large cookbook. Divided into six seasons, the recipes mentioned on the blurb had me drooling in the bookshop. If you want to re-tune into what's seasonal this is a very good place to start. I'm hoping to have a very tasty year. 

  • The Talented Mr Ripley, Patricia Highsmith - a classic that I haven't had the pleasure of reading and I've seen majority of the film so I thought why not go for the glamorous cover. The VMC designer collection has a real breadth of books and I'm attempting to collect the lot. 

  • The Dud Avocado, Elaine Dundy - Another in the VMC designer collection and another story I've been waiting to get my hands on. 

  • The Cottage Kitchen, Marte Marie Forsberg - I've followed Marte for such a long time on Instagram and her photo taking abilities are spectacular so I just know this book is going to be beautifully shot and will have me wanting to lick the pages. 

Let's just hope I've been good this year...
