Very stylish boys
Steve Marriott in his own words ... "The term 'Face' was a top mod, a face about town, a respected chap! The name 'Small Faces' came from a girl called Annabelle I knew from Chelsea. I didn't know many from Chelsea but I knew this one! Anyway, she signed the hire purchase agreement for my amplifier. We were trying to think of a name and she said call yourselves the Small Faces 'coz she said we were all little and had little boat races. It was great for us because it fitted in with wanting to be faces anyway."

Now personally I really don't like the artwork i.e the lady or the colours as it doesn't look mod or 60s to me in the slightest all a little gawdy - but don't let that put you off what looks set to be an amazing weekender!
Look here for more info!

My lovely flatmate the other day whilst we sat having a lovely spanish meal with our friends, told me she thought I was obsessed with food....hmmm I like to think passionate about food! Yup I am a complete foodie, bit of a food snob really if Im honest!
Here's a recipe I did last night gluten free healthy pizza base yum, yum, fast easy and two main ingredients - easy peasy, my kind of food!
I highly recommend this recipe!
Gluten free, healthy pizza base!
Flour300g Butternut Squash
Sprinkle of Italian Herbs especially basil mf favourite!
1. Bake a Butternut Squash for 1 hour at 200c. Allow to cool then peel, de-seed and mash2. Weigh out 300g of Buckwheat Flour and combine with 300g of the Squash and the Garlic and Herbs - this should give you a dough like consistency, add more flour if necessary3. Sprinkle flour over your work surface and then roll the dough into a circle4. Part bake the pizza base for 20 mins at 200c
Prepare your topping, take the base out spread your topping on drizzle with a little olive oil, bake for another 10mins. Take it out sprinkle some rocket and balsamic vinegar on it and ta-dah!
Im taking home made pizza to a friends house tonight mmm,mmm!
If music be the food of love, play on!

And then we also have a photoshoot coming up! Yup I say 'We' me and my flatmate Tania are hobbyist DJs who dabble do the occassional night and friends party but have decided to take it a little more seriously...we now have a name 'The Beat Girls' * subject to change should we decide it's a rubbish name!
So at the end of the month we are going to a photography studio in Lincoln to have promotional photos taken by the wonderful Nottingham based photographer, Gemma Hughes.
Also I am the curator for the vintage and record fair at BlastOff Festival very excited about this!
The festival was a great success last year, and this year will be even bigger and better! The festival will be taking place next summer, giving me plenty of time to work on my little project! Please get in touch should you wish to be considered for a stall whether you are a maker, musician, record seller, fashion designer, vintage seller, artist, hairdresser, DJ, Make up Artist etc we want to hear from Nottinghams local talent!
And last but by no means least - I'm taking another hobby a little further my love for food - Im experimenting a little more in the kitchen with the idea of selling the goodies I make! But it won't be the usual fashiony cupcakes that are all around at the moment - Im making hippy food stylish! hehe. Yup I'm making raw choclate cake with all natural ingredients, and other natural whole food sweets and cakes! Yum, yum - food can be yummy and healthy! More YumYum Cakes coming soon!
