How to wear the tweed snood April 18 2019

 

Been gifted one of our tweed snoods? Need help on how to wear one? Well here’s a video showing you how to wear your new accessory...

 

Helpful tips.... 

  1. make sure you have the suede loop in your left hand
  2. your right hand needs to hold the parallel corner 
  3. place the snood behind your head so that the middle of the snood is inline with the middle of your neck
  4. take your right hand and place the snood on your left collarbone
  5. take your left hand to your right collarbone where you should be able to find the coconut wooden button to loop on to. 

Their is is only one button to loop onto  this is because the friction of the two materials hold the first corner up.

10 things you didn’t know about me February 25 2019

  

Hello, I am planning  on creating more blog posts about myself and the business to give you some insight into my history first of all with a quick 10 things you didn’t know about me. 

  1. I grew up on my parents bull beef farm where I loved being outdoors, mainly playing with the dogs 
  2. I nearly went to bishop burton agricultural college to study animal behavior, but I freaked out at the taster day when they got out the snakes and one went down someone’s top. 
  3. After that I was too late to get into college to do a levels i opted for a btec in art and design which I thoughley enjoyed and would love to do again.
  4. From the age of 13 until university at 18 I competed in dog agility with my border collie, misty
  5. After college I went onto university to study fashion design, even though I didn’t know what I wanted to do at the end of it  and I nearly quit half way through I knew I enjoyed making things. And managed to complete the 3year course with a 2:1
  6. I have never broken any bones nor do I have any allergies 
  7. I use to ride as a youngster but never really enjoyed it,i preferred being the spectator. And since watched many of my sisters riding lessons. 
  8. I started the business after university when I decided I didn’t want city life no more and moved back home to my parents farm in North Yorkshire. 
  9. In 2016 I decided I wanted to travel so jumped on a plane to New Zealand, luckily I had a friend already living there but my parents weren’t happy me traveling so far alone. I have done this every winter since to catch the New Zealand summer and harvest. My parents seem less worried now. 
  10. Favorite meal... my Mums Sunday roast especially if it’s roast beef, Yorkshire puddings  and for dessert...apple and bramble pudding and custard.

I hope you enjoyed reading,you can take the girl out of Yorkshire but not Yorkshire out of the girl 🙃 xx

Roy’s Peak Challenge January 03 2019

For The past two years every December I have travelled to New Zealand to escape the winter here and spend the summer time abroad. Also my partner, Jonny  has lived and worked in New Zealand for the past 6years.
This year I headed out 2days after my final winter show in December. Leaving Manchester airport on a cold Monday afternoon for a long 27hour flight touching down in Dubai and Sydney before arriving in sunny Christchurch where Jonny was waiting for me.
My goal this years was to achieve the iconic Roy’s peak walk in Wanaka having heard about it last year. So a few days after arriving I had booked us a trip down to wanaka
With an elevation of 1578m this 6.50kms walk is described as medium on the difficulty scale. Many glorious pictures have been taken of this scenic walk and I wanted to add  some to my collection. Luckily When we set off I still had jet lag so the half 4wake up call wasn’t all so bad and I’m rather glad we had an early start for the beautiful sunrise over the mountains. It took us four and a half sweaty hours to do the climb with plenty of scenic camera snapping along the way. Once we reached the top high cloud meant we weren’t able to view the bottom and we just missed out on the iconic shot of Roy’s peak however we were able to take many other shots which were just as beautiful to us. Not an easy walk however I would recommend to anyone who loves a challenge.
Back to wanaka in time for lunch it was a quick shower before our afternoon treat to cardrona hotel, one of New Zealand’s oldest and iconic hotels and they do the best grazing platter!  We soaked up the sunshine on our bean bags in the garden whilst our legs began to burn from our walk, nothing a pint couldn’t solve, or a G&T for me 😊 
After our amazing grazing platter we decided to head back to wanaka for a dip in the lake (soothe the tired muscles) and to see the famous wanaka tree... one of the most photographed trees in the world. And I have to admit this tree had quite the fan club and I can understand why with it’s unusual yet  tranquil setting. 
Our first adventure of New Zealand 2018/2019 complete and one to tick off my goal list . Xx
