Laura Ashley SS16 Press Show

Earlier in the week on Wednesday my sister Becky and myself were invited up to London to attend the Laura Ashley Spring/Summer Press Show. We’d both previously attended the Autumn/Winter 2015 event back in June. We had a great time visiting the Laura Ashley headquarters to preview the new Spring/Summer collection. Here are some snapshots from the day!

There is a nautical seaside theme to the collection. I love that the spring/summer collection captures and brings back memories of summer on the beach accompanied by a picnic or barbecue.

I can definitely see myself buying this picnic hamper! BBQ fans will really enjoy this barbecue – grill up meat, fish or veggies for an al fresco dinner in your garden or by the sea.

We both loved these adorable coloured jars. They would be a brilliant portable way to stay hydrated in the summer sun! And they are super cute and fun!

There’s nothing quite like traditional British seaside treats! Rock, whippy ice creams and candy floss always remind me good times at the seaside!

I love the kitchenware, especially these mugs and tea towels. The designs are pretty and sophisticated, and will look perfect in any kitchen.

The Laura Ashley team had a little competition going on, on the day. You had to think of a cool and imaginative name for the boat. Me and my sister came up with “Aboat Time” – I was very impressed with that play on words! But I did also like some of the other entries, such as “Laura Splashley” being one of my favourites!

As you will all know, I have a big love for cupcakes! How cute and yummy do these red velvet cupcakes look?!

A big thank you to the Laura Ashley team for inviting us! We had a brilliant time!

Snapshots from Laura Ashley AW15 Press Day

I was recently invited along to the Laura Ashley A/W15 Press Day up in London. The event took place at the Music Rooms in Mayfair and I had the chance to look around at Laura Ashley’s brand new home and fashion collections. It was great fun to be invited along with journalists and other bloggers, I brought my sister Becky along with me and we enjoyed some time looking at the lovely bakeware and collections along with biscuits, cupcakes and some tasty mocktails!

Our day started with an early wakeup call, ready to catch the train down to London. A short hour journey and we arrived in London ready to find the venue. It was lovely to finally meet some members from the Laura Ashley team who I’ve been talking with for some time and to have a warm welcome.

I’ve always been a big fan of Laura Ashley products. The collections are always chic, pretty and perfect for all seasons. So I was ecstatic to be invited along to the event for a first look at the collection.

If you read my blog regularly then you may know that I’ve been working with the Laura Ashley over the last year sharing some of my favourite recipes over on their blog. You may even like to try this delicious Eton Mess Cheesecake I posted over on their site! It’s perfect for summer and is brilliant fun to make and decorate.

As we walked round we actually got to the chance to step into Christmas! Christmas in June – yes, it got me excited for those cold, cozy winter nights again! I loved how magical and christmassy the collection is this year.

I love this glittery cocktail set. It would be perfect for the Xmas party season!

Now for the beautiful bakeware! Definitely the highlight of the visit. I really like the adorable bakeware, the floral designs are my favourite and I pretty much love all things vintage. This flour shaker is seriously cute and I really love the rolling pin for making pastry.

Pretty little cupcake cases and toppers. And how cute are those dress biscuits?! Almost too beautiful to eat!
