Blogger Feature

Meet Florence! The fairy-like blogger living in - we are totally obsessed with this little cutie's style and her amazing photos! We caught up with Florence to chat about her influences, beauty secrets and the inspirations behind the styles Florence has selected from the Madia & Matilda Summer 17 collection.

Can you tell us a little bit about yourself? 

I'm Flo, I'm a student, fashion addict and a total dessert-lover. I also have an adorable dog who's 10 years old so he's practically an old man.

How long have you been Blogging for? 

I started in 2010, so it has been over 7 years since I've started blogging. It's one of my passions because it helped me make friends when I'm down and lonely. Also it has brought me closer to many other bloggers out there. I've also learned a lot about fashion trends and what's good and bad. 

Is there anything specific that inspired your Madia & Matilda photoshoot?

I always take my shots against a white background, which fits the Madia & Matilda brand very well. Your style is simplistic, elegant and minimal, with a feminine, gentle twist. I tried to get this feeling across in my photos. 

Which is your favourite Madia & Matilda piece of our Summer 17 collection? 

I adore the Rache Denim Dress- it's so pretty and simplistic. It just screams "classy"! 

Beauty secrets... 

Sleep well, eat well and exercise! I also use lots of moisturizer as I have dry skin. Sunscreen helps! 

If you can take us to your hometown for a day, where will you take us to? 

I'd take you to the street markets down in the busiest parts of town, near Mong Kok. It has got the best street food you'll ever eat!

AREA CODE - Curious in Cardiff

Today we want to celebrate the lovely city that is Cardiff, which is where our showcase is taking us next! Why not join us on the 10th and take the time to enjoy some of these awesome opportunities at the same time?

1)    Cardiff Bay

Cardiff’s waterfront offers loads to do for all ages and interests. Not only is it home to various eateries, boat trips and cultural attractions, but it is enough to keep you occupied all day, and night. The Cardiff Bay barrage holds a wicked kids’ playground to entertain any little ones you might have with you, and boat trips are available if you prefer to see the Bay from a little closer up. Our particular favourite has to be Mermaid Quay bars and amusements though, so keep an eye out for those!

2)    National Museum Cardiff and St Fagans National History Museum

The National Museum Cardiff is one that’s fun for all the family, as it is home to the likes of Impressionist paintings and dinosaurs and the world’s largest Leatherback Turtle and a skeleton of a Humpback Whale! They even offer a Guided Tour daily from 12.30pm that last approximately 35 minutes.

St Fagans Museum is also another top 10. Not only is it one of Europe's leading open–air museums and Wales's most popular heritage attraction, but admission is also free! The Museum has been open since 1948 and is still going strong, with various events taking place on site throughout the year. Check out what they have to offer here.

3)    Cardiff Castle

A must-see for any history buff you are bringing along with you! Explore the stunning blast-to-the-past and history within the castles walls.
4)    Farmers Market

This is perhaps our number one on our list of Cardiff to-dos! Not only is the food all locally sourced, something we here at Madia and Matilda are very passionate about, but they also support local businesses. The Market is celebrating its 19th year this year and is sure to be another incredible year. Check it out here.

5)    The Cardiff Story

The Cardiff Story is a good way to start your own Cardiff story of explorations! It is housed in the beautiful Old Library Building in the middle of the city and, quite literally, tells the story of Cardiff! This includes the transformation of Cardiff from a small market town to the cosmopolitan city we know and love nowadays. Find out more here.
Don’t just listen to me, take a sneak peek at what these Cardiff bloggers have to say about the EPIC city here.
Have a great trip!

Sincerely Madia & Matilda

AREA CODE - Dreaming of Durham

Following the success of our little excursion to Chelsea last month, we will be heading to the lovely town of Durham shortly and wanted to give you guys some ideas of what you can get up to in Durham when the shows finished!

Go Stargazing at Hamsterley Forest

Why not join local amateur astronomer Neill Sanders, former volunteer at Kielder Observatory and member of the Go Stargazing team, between 28th March until 30th March for an evening of fun for all the family stargazing at Hamsterley Forest through large telescopes.

Open Treasure - Beasts

Who needs a trip to The Wizarding World of Harry Potter when Open Treasure at Durham Cathedral exists?! This is an exhibition of the weird and wonderful beasts and monsters which have fascinated people from earliest times and is sure to amaze any HP fans in your life, big or small!

Available now until 10th June with various opening times (see website for more details).

Durham Castle: Family Fun Tour

Bring the whole family to Durham Castle Tours on 31st March and enjoy a family-focused tour around Durham Castle, with activities for children throughout the tour.

Please note that charges do apply for this.

Bishop Auckland Food Festival

For the foodie's, Bishop Auckland Food Festival taking place 1st April to 2nd April is the obvious choice. Not only is it the region’s biggest food event, growing year on year hosting a whole programme of events and activities including celebrity chefs, cookery demo’s, street entertainment and a demonstration kitchen, it is also hosted in Auckland Castle - stunning food, stunning venue, what more could you possibly want?!

For something a little more romantic, join experienced astronomer Graham Relf on 7th April (Open 19:00 - 22:00) at North Pennines Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB), Ireshopeburn where he will lead a talk about the planet Jupiter, and if the skies are clear you may be lucky enough to see it yourself through a telescope!

After a giggle? Why not hit The Gala Theatre on Friday 14th April for their Funny Bones Comedy Club! A monthly dose of funnies with a mix of seasoned stand-ups and new comedic talents ready to have you laughing your socks off.

Beamish Museum

Throughout the year, Beamish hosts lots of interesting events for all the family to enjoy, including The Great North Festival of Transport, a Georgian Fair, The Great North Festival of Agriculture and much more. They even host a whole season of events just for Christmas!

Experience a real sense of your past at Beamish, and discover what life was like in North East England in the 1820s,1910s and 1940s .

Why we love it at Madia & Matilda: Beamish is a living, working museum, set in 300 acres of beautiful Durham countryside. Costumed folk bring to life the Town, Pit Village, Home Farm and Pockerley Old Hall.

You are also able to experience first-hand how the Industrial Revolution transformed agricultural life in the region as the buildings you see at Beamish are not replicas, but have been brought, brick by brick, from around the region and rebuilt to give visitors a real sense of history.

Also note: Tickets to Beamish are valid for 12 months from the date of purchase for an unlimited number of daytime visits to the Museum. Visit the website for full details.

Events at Beamish Museum March-April:

Great North Festival of Transport

This hugely popular festival gets bigger and better every year. Therefore, we think it is a must for enthusiasts and  a fantastic family activity for all to get involved in!

29th March – 23rd April (Open 10:00 - 17:00).

Old Kind Coal

This five-day celebration of the rich mining heritage of North East England is a definite must-have for any history buffs you may have joining you. Not only can you join in in the banner parades, but also have the chance to enjoy performances by local brass bands.

29 March to 2 April (Open 10:00 - 17:00).

Great North Steam Fair

This is an annual steam fair with an amazing line-up of visiting vehicles and Beamish Transport, in action and on view for all to see! Please the little ones or the boys that refuse to grow up with the likes of motorcycles, lorries and much more.

6th – 9th April (Open 10:00 - 17:00).

Horses at Work
