The Well

Out and about doing a little fabric shopping to re-search fabrics available for some of the lovely new styles we're working on in Bristol the other day. We stopped for tea and cake, mid afternoon at the beginning of Gloucester road (where it's actually Cheltenham road), in this lovely little cafe, called @The Well. Which is also a laundrette and internet cafe! The menu includes deals and prices for self service washes with lunch or breakfast while your wait for your load, and the whole place is decorated in the sweetest way. If only we lived in Bristol......sigh......

Swimin' With Solene

Anyone who's a fan on our facebook page will have seen a lot of these already. Frankly I think they're fantastic and well worth looking at time and time again. I'd wanted to work with Solene for ages. She lives in Norwich where I went to uni and out paths had met a few times towards the end of my final year there. I LOVED my time in that fine city......
Anyway, she's a beauty, and a sweetheart and finally the right chance came up to get her modelling for Lady K Loves. Sadly I didn't go to Norwich for the day of the shoot, I haven't been back for years but another shoot with this lil' lady might be the prefect excuse for a visit.

Solene's wearing our Sindy swimsuit in Hawaiian print and brown and Double Cutie Bikini in emerald.

Carters Steam Fair.

The other day I went to Weston-Super-Mare. It's the beach we went to a child on day trips, and it's tacky, run down but I love it. It's full of fond memories going with my dad and sister, with my grandparents, and even later on at art school day trips while I was studying photography, and when friends first learnt to drive, day trips and I pretty sure I remember people losing shoes in the mud whilst we played Frisbee! It's pretty much the same place. As wonderfully tacky and beautiful as ever. The new pier is sadly no where near as nice though.

But there was this......Caters Steam Fair. A wonderful world on the sea front gardens with full restored and working rides. I feel in love. As did the friend I was there with, who is a steam engine enthusiast shall we say.....otherwise know as a super geek engineer who loves trains.

After riding the Octopus Paul turned green and felt sick becuase it span around too much, I on the other hand not only loved that it span, but worked out how to make it spin more and didn't even realise the ride had finished becuase I was still going!

So I have until 2nd September to go back there....i sort of love the idea of lots of people meeting there for a rockin day out by the sea!
