A Monday Movie #5 – Making a film

Day 4003 in lockdown (or so it seems). Despite not being able to leave the house other than for groceries, I have found myself spinning many a plate. It’s strange to be so busy when nothing is happening – I feel like I have been working so much, but not actually doing anything. Today, I… Continue reading →

A Decadent Pe

A Decadent Pea

After my experience with my at home speakeasy, I decided to head out for the evening. I walk across the town for a while and find myself at a club I used to know all too well. Nobody knew it was a club, you had to go round the back way. I was hardly dressed… Continue reading →

A Random Ramble

Oh look, I blinked and now it’s 2021. Hello peas, I missed you and I briefly forgot about you after I said I wouldn’t; but that’s only because of lots of Christmas Dinner and board games, and martini’s (obviously). But, if you are reading this then it means you are still here, so thank you and hello again. … Continue reading →

A Monday Movie #4

I imagine my blog today to be a lot like an abandoned cinema, or movie theater (whatever floats your boat). Why is it dark? Where is everyone? Why isn’t the movie playing? Is that an untouched candy? No, it’s just a ticket stub from times gone… I’m sorry for abandoning you, peas. It’s a fun… Continue reading →

A Monday Movie #3

It’s raining, and has been raining for some time. I think that possibly it will rain forever. Also, it’s really cold. As I write this, I am sat with my back against the radiator, wearing a roll neck jumper and a blazer, and I’m quite tempted to stick on my head wrap and find my… Continue reading →


“Happiness is not in money, but in shopping.” – Marilyn Monroe Today is a good day, as it is the first time I went outside in about 4 days. Where I am in the UK, things are either closed due to the lockdown tier system, or things are extremely busy because they are open during… Continue reading →

A Small Business Christmas with Be Designer

Hello peas, today I want to talk about shopping. As a vintage lover, when I’m shopping I look for the quirky, the different, the decadent – and my means are often thrift shopping, charity shops, or independent sellers. Basically, I like to avoid the high street where I can, so when I come across somewhere… Continue reading →

An Old Fashioned, Reely Good Boyfriend

This time last week I uploaded my first Reel to Instagram, and then wrote a blog post about it – and that is my plan once a week until further notice, and with that comes the challenge of finding something original to Reel about every time. Fortunately, I live with my partner Jack who is… Continue reading →

A Monday Movie #2

I write this post tonight as I am sandwiched between two zoom webinars, so it may be a quick one…although, it may not. I am a filmmaker and talent agent day to day, and it goes without saying that films are incredibly important to me. I could write endless lists of films that I love… Continue reading →

A Decoupage Coffee Table (and how to make yours)

Before I start this post I would like to mention the obvious in that, I can’t help you make a coffee table (I didn’t study woodwork, and if I did, I probably wouldn’t be very good) but rather, how to decorate a decoupage table in a decadent way (try saying that three times fast). This… Continue reading →

A Jewellery Box (and how to fill yours)

Gold or Silver? Costume or High End? Layering or Just One? There are so many things to think about when you are choosing your jewellery for the day. If you are like me, you might have one piece that you never take off, or maybe, you change your look every day depending on how you… Continue reading →
