We are a lucky bunch over at Rumour towers as we’re pleased to announce another bit of good news…we are now representing Betty & Walter, the new brand from the lovely British designer Lisa Levis!

Lisa is known for her unique, modern and illustrative prints. Which she shares wonderfully with the Betty & Water collection of homeware, bags and toiletries, all products of good value and quality.

With its twist of vintage retro B&W accessories are feminine, practical and easy to use, complete with well thought out functionality and attention to detail. Just our cup of tea!

We’re grinning from ear to ear learning the retro pudding and sweets inspired names for the B&W collection (I’m planning to try cooking them *all*, anyone tried making an Almond Hardbake before?! Very excited to try it!).

While fighting over who’s going to buy which bag and scrapping over which is the very best cup design (it’s Criss Cross – by the way if you ask me).

We’ll soon have our mitts on the new SS14 collection and can’t wait to share it. Watch this space for B&W news and maybe even our attempts to cook B&W inspired puds. Lemon Whip anyone?

Baking with Tala

September 23, 2013

Now that the GBBO is back on our screens, us girls at Rumour PR have dusted off our mixing bowls and thrown on our aprons to give this baking malarkey a go. Being that a hen party was on the cards we decided to use the new Letterpress Cookie Cutters from Tala to make some personalised goodies for the hen. Plus some red velvet cupcakes using the new polka dot cupcake cases – complete with topless men to decorate.

Here’s the shortbread recipe that we used for the biscuits and the red velvet cupcake recipe can be found here

250g Butter Softened

140g Icing Sugar, sifted

1tsp Vanilla extract

1 Large egg yolk

375g Plain flour (plus extra for dusting)

Instructions:

  1. Beat the butter and sugar together in a large bowl until very pale and fluffy. Add the vanilla and egg yolk and mix well.
  2. Sift in the flour and mix until it forms a dough. Preheat oven to 190c
  3. While the oven is preheating, roll out the dough on a sheet of baking paper dusting the paper and rolling pin with flour. Roll to about 1cm thickness and chill on the paper for at least 30 minutes.
  4. Remove from the refrigerator and lightly dust both sides of the rolled dough with flour.
  5. To stamp cookies, dip the cutter into flour and tap off any excess. Press the cutter through the dough first then depress the stamp to push the message into the cookie. Cut out all the cookies and then remove the dough from around the sides and transfer the parchment paper with cookies to a baking tray.
  6. Bake for 10-12 minutes until pale golden and leave to fully cool.

Christmas always comes early at Rumour PR

August 27, 2013

Every year we start thinking about Christmas ridiculously early. And this year was no exception as we held our annual Christmas in July event back on the 11th July. Obviously it’s been keeping us busy since(!) so here, at last, is a little overview on our take on yuletide and some pics to give you a peek into our festive summer day and so you can see what expect from our lovely clients for Christmas 2013.

Summer Festivals

June 11, 2013

It’s almost festival season and we’re very excited. A couple of us are off to Glasto and this is what we’ll be packing in our survival kit. We’ve also heard that a heatwave is forecast so sun cream, sunglasses and a big floppy hat are also in the rucksack. Bring it on.

Picnic weather

June 7, 2013

Ever the optimists we are hoping for a bit of picnic weather this weekend! So we’ve put together perfect picnic picks from our brands. We can’t promise sun, but we can guarantee that even a soggy picnic will look spiffing with this lot…

Tube Line Colours launch from London Transport Museum

June 4, 2013

We are really excited to be launching this collection for London Transport Museum – not least because Ruth is a massive transport geek and a bit of a closet trainspotter. It’s a really clever range, drawing inspiration from the iconic colours of the underground map and is available now from London Transport Museum.
