Barrus X Rolls Royce – London Fashion Week

Be your date for the Barrus X Rolls Royce London Fashion Week afterparty in Mayfair? Baby, you had me at Rolls Royce, screw the rest! (where’s that laughing/crying emoji when you need it?) I mean, we can cut the rest of the Zoolander crap, and I’ll turn up to a party for a sexy beast…

Get Ugly – Jason Derulo at the O2

Hey beautiful people, it’s been way too long, I know! As they all say, I’ve been busy. I’m working on getting the first draft of my current novel finished by end of February, so it’s all hands on deck with regard to the creatives in my mind! I can offer a small highlight of my…

Seven days already?

That new job I started? Well, it’s going great! But my God I had no idea until this morning that it has been well and truly more than seven days since I promised a return to our latest story! My sincerest apologies for that…. It will be here shortly, perhaps give me the weekend? In…

Once upon a time…

Once upon a time in midwinter, when the snowflakes were falling like feathers from heaven, a queen sat sewing at her window, which had a frame of black ebony wood. As she sewed she looked up at the snow and pricked her finger with her needle. Three drops of blood fell into the snow. The…

After midnight

Stephanie gave me some great observations, and the excellent topic of stereotypes after being obliged to endure the evening at an awkward house party. Having found a neat little way to utilise such a topic, I now need to pop out at 11pm and jump on a bus to snap the cover photo for this one……

For Sale

For day eighteen I have had to wrangle with the rather devious topic of sex. Thank you for dropping me in a real challenge, Miss Abi Rose, I know you loved it. I’ve decided to use it to highlight a topic I feel quite passionately about, the plight of Human Trafficking and the use of…

And the world around her was utterly silent

I heard that Will woke up on New Years day in Berlin, after the carnage of the night before, and suddenly realised which theme he would give me for day fourteen, the sound of silence. (If you are joining Emmeline’s story today, welcome! It might help for you to begin here.) And the world around her…

The Lightning and the Tree

If at first you don’t succeed, -well you know the rest! I had this post ready to go well before midnight on day nine, however, when it came time to share I realised I just wasn’t happy with it. Sometimes good things do need to take time, especially a good topic like the lightning tree,…

The eye of the storm

Strange and ridiculous sounding words are somehow always fun to work into a sentence. It can take weeks or even months from the moment you discover an epic word, to the moment when you find the perfect sentence in which to place it. However, in a similar situation the pressure to fit a particularly strange word into…

His lifeline (I’ll miss you). Part 1

This little tale is here for you to zone out and escape while you are still digesting you Christmas meal on a hopefully relaxed boxing day afternoon! And if I haven’t said it already, Merry Christmas beautiful people! His lifeline. J R Manawa. ‘Just keep driving. Please.’ It wasn’t a request. It was simply, “do…

Welcome to my new home.

Welcome! This is it, I have a new place to call home and my own ‘dot com’–exciting times! Fingers crossed this new layout is designed to be easier to read, easier to connect, and easier to follow. To the beautiful people who are keen readers and already follow me, I hope you enjoy the new…
