Autumn Pamper Time!



The nights are drawing in and that can mean only one thing, pamper and cosy time! I have a quick 10 day holiday to go on (brag alert) so will need to be dipping back into summer mode briefly but can't wait for coming out the other side when the candles, blankets and baths are a must! A few things I've made for my shop (and self) is my autumnal shower cap which I can't wait to use for my baths and when I stop washing my hair quite as frequently. 







Then there's the gorgeous hot water bottle cover which will keep me toasty on the cold nights and last but not least my eye mask to give me the best nights sleep so I wake up fresh and perky! (One can dream, which is what I will do as I am not a morning person). 






I'm really looking forward to kicking the crispy leaves underfoot and making butternut squash soup to take with me whilst I day dream on a cold walk. Every year I say I'll decorate the house outside with pumpkins and straw, maybe this is the year?? Does anybody else in the UK get involved in autumnal spirit? Besides the Halloween kind... which of course is when we all watch Hocus Pocus with hot chocolate, of course. 







Classic Becca Is Open For Business!

Hey everyone! 

After 9 months, just like a baby, my website has been born! I've never been pregnant but that was a long time to be working on something so well done to all my lady friends out there. Kudos. 

It's been a long time passion and dream of mine, making and creating and I am so proud that I have finally been able to launch my own website. This is only the beginning and I have a lot of work ahead of me! My brand and designs will continue to evolve and I will follow advice and trends making and creating for YOU! I hope you like, I would be very grateful if you could spread the word, the karma queens will visit you tenfold! 









Heres a peak at some of the things I've been making for you, take a look and let me know what you think, more and more textiles, greeting cards and jewellery will be added very soon and much much more! 

Rose Petal Shortbread & Tea!



Ingredients 

175g Plain Flour
125g Butter 
50g Caster sugar 
1 tsp Rose water
Rose petals 

Decoration 

Icing sugar 
Rose water 
Rose petals 

Equipment 

Scales

Method 

Preheat your oven to 180 (fan 160 or gas mark 4) 
1. Put in a bowl, flour, sugar and butter, adding the rose water and petals through mixing with your hands to form a dough.

2. Roll the dough out in one direction to the desired thickness and cut out hearts or other shape with the cutter, keep forming a new ball and rolling out the excess until you have none left, or very little. 

3. Flour a baking tray or line with parchment paper and lay the hearts on. 

4. Bake for 20 minutes, longer if you want a darker colour, but keep your eye on them! 

5. Take out of the oven and put on a cooling rack. Mix icing sugar with rose water and spoon onto the middle of the biscuits sprinkling with rose petals. 

Make a cup of tea and enjoy! I like to have a cup of lavender earl grey from my London Tea Club subscription! 




Enjoy!
