About / Contact Me




I am a UK based blogger, I started this blog at the end of December 2012. I wanted to enter the New Year with a blog, a place to share my love of all things fabulous. 

I wanted to use this space to share my cupcakes, I bake from home, a small home business I call Appleton Bakery. I am also a huge fan of burlesque and wanted to share this passion and since then I have shared a whole host of interviews with top international stars such as Immodesty Blaize, Catherine D'Lish, Perle Noire, Bettsie Bon Bon, Gwendoline Lamour, Khandie Khisses and many more. My first burlesque interview was with the lovely Lena Mae and ever since the interviews have proved to be a big hit, even being shared on Facebook by the legendary Dita Von Teese and top model Bernie Dexter. 

I also wanted to use this blog to share my love of pin up style and 40's and 50's fashion. I am a curvy girl myself and thought this would be a great way to introduce people to companies they may not have come across, my own fashion choices, accessories etc. I have managed to interview some great people in this area including Cameron Silver, vintage fashion expert. He is the owner of Decades store and the man behind many A-List Hollywood Celebs red carpet looks. Lydia Rose Bright celebrity fashion designer, owner of Bella Sorella store and TOWIE star. Laura Byrnes, designer, professional photographer and owner of Pinup Girl Clothing. Betty Hobcraft from Betty Blues Loungerie. She is the designer and director of UK produced luxury lounge wear company. Not to mention some fabulous pin up models including Cherry Dollface and Romanie Smith. I also document my own experiences modelling throughout my blog.

I really wanted my blog to be versatile, I have many things I enjoy and wanted to share with the world and hope to continue bringing new things for all my followers.

I hope that you enjoy my blog, my reviews, interviews, style tips, guest stars, and everything else it has to offer. I have a huge passion for my blog; it gives me many sleepless nights but so much enjoyment.
