Grassington Festival

Grassington Festival fashion: New Look paisley print kimono

After a couple of days in London, we jumped back in the car and headed back up north for our annual festival weekend. Although on the same weekend as the world’s most famous festival at Worthy Farm, we were going to Grassington, not Glastonbury. Still, there were fields and live music, and with my wristband on I ...

Summer wish list

Summer 2014 wish list - Topshop, Marc Jacobs, Whistles, Zara, Asos, Stuart Weitzman, Alphabet Bags

So summer is being pretty kind to us Brits this year, no? How have you been spending these sunny days? As you know, I've been away camping and we've been busy making progress with the house renovation. I've been going out more than usual after work, the snatched hours of evening sun making up for all the time ...

What I wore: floral trousers

Floral trousers at Eltham Palace London

After just a handful of days in Norfolk, several weeks of solid toil at work and at home were forgotten and we were completely relaxed. Unfortunately, our zen-like state was about to change. Our next stop was London and driving into the capital would send our stress levels soaring - albeit for a very good reason. My brother ...

A boy, a girl and a bike

A boy, a girl and a bike 1940s photo shoot in Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire

Bike fever has well and truly taken over in Yorkshire, with the Tour de France being here this week. So I thought it fitting to share this lovely 1940s-style fashion shoot, visualised by West Yorkshire designers and photographed by Shelly of Toast of Leeds around Hebden Bridge, where the Tour will pass through on Sunday. The shoot was ...

It's that time again - this month's gift ideas from the Ask Her Friends blogger panel is live! If you remember from last time I've recently joined a host of my favourite bloggers on this panel, and each month we choose a selection of gifts. And the best bit is if you hop on over to the June blogger ...

Joules summer festival style

Joules summer festival wish list

I've said before that I love how the number and range of festivals has grown in the last few years. When I was a student in the late 90s, it seemed like it was all - Glastonbury, parting with £200 for a weekend in a cramped tent, braving a mud bath and revolting portaloos - or ...

What I wore: printed jumpsuit

What I wore: black and white print casual jumpsuit, denim jacket, Ray Ban Wayfarers, tribal print backpack

This could be the world's comfiest jumpsuit. Perfect for summer days, it has a boho black and white print and is cool and light making it good to travel in while fitting for hanging out at camp, in the pub or at a garden party or gig. I wore it for our family's recent gathering at Cloughton Station and ...

Eclectic home store: RE

RE eclectic home accessories store in Corbridge, Northumberland | www.angelinthenorth.com

At the beginning of our recent few days in Northumberland we stopped off in the small town of Corbridge. "We're here," I said, as we parked up in front of a rather uninspiring rural petrol station. My husband shot me one of his familiar "where have you brought us now?" looks. But wonderful things are yet more rewarding when ...

Ask Her Friends blogger panel

Ask Her Friends May blogger panel picks

A couple of weeks ago, I was asked to join the bloggers panel at Ask Her Friends. (Even better that my name was put forward by one of my favourite bloggers Lisa). The idea is that, each month, AHF asks their bloggers to choose gift ideas on a particular theme. So May is my first month ...

What I wore: New trainers

What I wore: New Balance trainers | www.angelinthenorth.com

My great day in Manchester last week might have been a lot less enjoyable if I hadn't had these bouncy, comfy, sweet things on my feet. At the beginning of the year, I told myself 2014 would be the year I bought a good pair of (fashion) trainers. I knew I wanted New Balance or Nike ...
