The June Issue of One Magazine, the South West regional lifestyle magazine which I edit is out now. I thought I’d share a piece I wrote on Dingles Fairground Heritage Centre, which I simply can’t recommend highly enough.
I love independently published magazines, so I was really happy to contribute to the launch issue of Miss Ivy’s Journal, which is brought to you by Jo Macaskie of Miss Ivy Events. The magazine is being marketed as ‘Vintage Vision for modern Lives’ and does just that – providing vintage aficionados with a healthy does of fashion, culture and lifestyle pieces. I contributed a guide to the delightful and picturesque market town of Totnes, in Devon, which offers an abundance of delectable vintage shopping opportunities and delved into the wardrobes of The Vintage Cream’s Emma Quick, who has a eclectic era-mixing style and delicious dress collection… To find out more, visit the magazine’s Facebook page here.
This month I’ve contributed to Vintage Life – the glossy super glam magazine, full of vintage style. My feature sees me write about my Fiancé, Tom, and I making our own wedding rings, which we did with Nicola Hurst Design Jewellery, Plymouth, who offers wedding ring workshops. It was a brilliant experience, which I’d highly recommend. Take a look at my feature below and pick up a copy of Vintage Life in WHSmith.
In this tutorial for Dogs Monthly Magazine, I show readers how to turn a used crate into a chic feeding station – it’s easier than you might think! What do you think? My pooch seems to like it!
Planning on crowning your wedding gown with a covetable treasure from a beautiful bygone age? Good choice: there is something wonderful about wearing a piece of jewellery with a story – and shaping its next chapter.
This month I had the enviable task of writing a complete guide to vintage wedding jewellery for WED magazine – it was the most enjoyable wedding-realated feature I’ve written to date, and not just because it involved looking at lots of lovely sparkly jewes! In the feature I explain the difference between vintage, antique, estate and heirloom jewellery, as well as how to age rings, provide questions to ask when buying vintage and teach all about the hidden meanings of vintage jewellery. Did you know diamonds symbolise consistency, hence there use for engagement rings, coral was said to protect against evil, rubies mean passion, amethyst’s signify devotion, emeralds show hope and pearls symbolise tears? Fascinating!
