Cool Britannia


I love the Queen. Yeah, I said it.

I'm not a royalist but there is something about the Diamond Jubilee that has me all fired up & its not just because of the extra day off!

This year Britain & the rest of the world gets to celebrate Elizabeth II being on the throne for 60 years & I for one cannot wait to celebrate!

Now my street may not be having a street party, but I will be hanging out the bunting, firing up the BBQ, making several jugs of Pimms & hanging out my union jack flag.

For those of you not quite inspired by my rabble rousing take a look below, be inspired & celebrate all things British!

Afternoon tea at Claridges, London
Simply Gorgeous!
First of all nothing says British more than afternoon tea at Claridges.

Prices start at a mere £38 for afternoon tea. But of course I would opt for the Champagne Tea at £49.

Utterly divine Lahlink...

Limited Edition Jubilee/Team GB Lanson Champage
Mhhmm bubbles!

Now, of course since I've had one glass of Champagne at tea I will now be needing a bottle of two to help my scones go down.....

Champagne may not British but ....Verser un verre de Champagne ou deux & apprécie le jubilé de diamant !

Limited edition Lanson available from 20th May

Hunter Union Jack Wellington Boots
Hunter Wellies £125

Hunter wellies.. Are there any other kind? Perfect for walking the Corgi's, enjoying a showery BBQ or maybe a bit of glamping?


Team GB Beach Towel
Team GB Beach Towel £24

Whilst it's not exactly royal I simply can't resist this Team GB Towel.

Take this towel on holiday & show pride in Britain, sportsmanship & also beat the German's at their own game if you seen a sun lounger free!

I've always appreciated the queen's headgear & some of my past boyfriends have described me as a little 'princessy'.....

They should be so lucky!

I'm a queen & I deserve this fabulous tiara or 'off with their heads!'

Butler & Wilson Jubilee Tiara
Butler & Wilson Jubilee Tiara £168
