Adventure | Culture | Artisanal | Beauty | Tranquility
“I’ve always adored going on adventures to faraway places in search of one off treasures to fill my home. It brings me so much happiness to own a house full of unique pieces which all have their own story to tell, each made in parts of the world with wonderfully rich culture and skilled craftsmanship.”
Founder, Hattie Stock
Meet Hattie: Founder & Creative Director of Bardot Living, she’s a beautiful blonde fellow bohemian with a passion for Modern Boho Interiors.
Every item is handmade by skilled artisans using traditional methods unique to the area they come from.
No two pieces are the same due to the artisanal way they are made, giving each item its own unique beauty which cannot be replicated.
Tranquility is created throughout the brand and products by using a neutral and earthy colour palette which brings calm to your home.
From tableware to cushions and throws Bardot Living gives your home a Bohemian edge either with one off pieces or why not indulge and buy a whole collection of tableware for your next dinner party.
“We source our stock from cooperatives set up to look after the artisans who make these beautiful items. Most live in extremely rural, mountainous areas, making it hard for them to sell their products and make a living. These cooperatives provide a market place and a consistent salary for the artisans. “

The Quarter Life Crisis Poet: a collection of poems on pain heartbreak and defiance by a twenty-something
What we have here is a Romantic, a Dreamer who got overthrown by the people around her. Whispers of deep hurts overlay the pages. This is a soul trying to climb out of the well of despair. Cursed with unfulfilled love, filled with longing. Nobody to turn to. So she writes, she satisfies her need to be understood through poetic emblems. She reflects on what could have been and comforts old wounds of a past undeclared. After Crisis comes the Calm. There is Hope in these Poems after all Catherine Vaughan is a Romantic with Hopes that True Love will return. After all the delay of romance is not a denial of it…

Elixir Pursuits is a new documentary series created by Hooty a Vintage clothes shop owner where she films and interviews local talents in Herefordshire who are pursuing their dreams. The aim of her series is to uncover the elixir found in these creative careers and share guidance for creative and entrepreneurial souls.
This episode features me in depth behind and behind the scenes of the Poetry Slam I organized, hosted and performed in. There is an interview of me before the show and after.
Here’s some background into the series and you can hear more about Hooty watch the video on Youtube.

I show up to this Punk gig as a Poster Girl for “Square.” All white shirt collar poking through black sweater and casual trousers. It’s freezing and I’ve got a chunky winter coat on and a cute chic red bag from Hooty’s vintage store. The weather dictated my semi-preppy and rather dull attire. I accidentally encounter the star of the night Claire Perkins and huddle around as the first band Pablo Alto plays. I attempt to dance though it’s more like arm flapping. Claire is lovely, quiet and does not appear to be dancing along. She has pink dreadlocks very Gwen Stefani in “Ex-Girlfriend” music video. Unbeknownst to me she would be performing as lead singer in her band “A Hundred Suns”….
Pablo Alto are great with Hendrix-esque guitar pieces. I would see them again. The set is colourful and enthralls you into a psychedelic euphoria of guitar blazing. I’m feeling it, head swaying side to side and yes the arms just flapping around wildly and so not as chic as I imagine but I don’t care because I’m here to let loose….
Then came A Hundred Suns and Claire’s performance blew my mind. Screaming, full force and contagious! It was simply E-P-I-C! It’s a Perkins Punk Takeover!!!! The crowd lets go with wild abandon and guys at the front were in mosh pit mode there was even a pyramid of boys arising….. Literally on top of each other….
Read more about the band here. Like them on Facebook. Listen to their songs here.
All in all a fantastic night out on the ground floor of The Booth Hall.
When the weather gets warmer I’ll endeavor to attend in full Faith Lehane ensemble, red lips and cleavage gotta unleash the Punk Princess somehow. I may not be badass…
But I can look it. *Winks*
Notably being the homebody that I am I did not stay the entire night so missed out on “Teddy’s Leg.” Bonus review of this event found including the final band “Teddy’s leg” here.
A taste of Teddy’s Leg for you…
