Lady WordsmithDSC01734

Hello my lovelies! I am a transatlantic entertainment industry veteran who’s met the great and good of stage and screen (no I won’t spill any secrets…….. well maybe the odd one now and again). I adore being in a theatre, particularly the moment the house lights dim, anticipating the start of whatever performance is about to commence.

Lady Sky

Good Day, my name is Lady Sky, you can often find me six miles high and smiling. I love to travel and explore new places. Some call it curiosity, others nosiness. Either way I want to know what’s around the next corner, over the wall or behind the door marked private. I love all things luxurious (hence my passion for Art Deco design) but I’m not afraid of getting my hands dirty either.

Lady Metal

Lady Convivial (aka – Lady Viv)

I’m Lady Convivial, as the name suggests, I’m fond of feasting and the pleasures of jovial company. I love adventures and exploring off the beaten track, but I also like a little luxury so the untrodden path should have a nice hotel nearby!
