The English Rose Bakery

I always like to hear of new ventures and businesses opening up in my surroundings, so when I spotted these lovely colourful delights I thought I would give it a mention.
I have yet to try the sweet tasting English Rose Bakery Macaroons, but I intend to soon (Manchester's Piccadilly Real Food Market this Friday, 25th Feb).
The website is so pretty with it's pastel colours and delicious looking delicacies. Mmmm
Now I just need to organize a party so I can buy up some of their treats and pass them around to friends!

Animal magnetism

I am somewhat drawn to articles of clothing, prints and wallpapers with animals upon them. The boldness, colours, shapes and textures that these images give off seems to be what appeals to me. I am not usually a fan of Henry Hollands clothing range, however, this little zebra blouse popped up (below) and I loved it. I am also continuing my love for leopard's spots and currently have on sale a little birdy dress that we picked up in Hong Kong (unfortunately it doesn't fit me so I selling it on). The connotations of animals on clothing also makes me giggle. It's fun and appealing to all. People can often relate to it as it's instantly recognizable.

Here are a few of my favs out there...
