One-Line Bio

Been things & seen places.


I am a serious lover of pre-code films especially those starring Kay Francis & Loretta Young.
Sometimes I miss the dirty South & stay up late poring over a good old cookbook whilst watching Twin Peaks episodes.
I am a believer in the ennervating power of a long tub soak- my all time favorite is Lush's violet leaf, jasmine & clove Bathos bubble bar. Fun time for me includes recipes, oil blending, rereading Maugham & watching Battlestar Galactica.
My blogs are Tarnished Lady aka Vivlish and Tarnished's baby sister food blog Bonne Bouche (everything food related, recipes, experimentations + local picks).


showgirls, sheiks, theatre, costumes, Fitzgerald, Maugham, Parker, Bowles, cooking, hiking, sleeping under the stars.
