Happy Birthday Charles Dickens!

Happy Birthday Charles Dickens
Today marks Rochester’s most famous novelists Charles Dickens 200th Birthday!
Rochester, Kent played a large part in Charles Dickens life and many of his novels feature places and landmarks from this quaint little town. The recent BBC rendition of Edwin Drude, Charles Dickens final novel, was filmed in Rochester and featured the Cathedral on many occasions.  
Most of the restaurants and shops in Rochester play homage to this World famous novelist by using names and quotations in the name chosen for their business, ‘Sweet Expectations’ ‘Pips Of Rochester’ ‘Oliver’s Wine Bar’ to name a few.
Charles Dickens wrote the likes of Oliver Twist, A Christmas Carol, Little Dorrit, Great Expectations, The Mystery Of Edwin Drude he liked to write in weekly chapters, some like to refer to him as the modern day soap writer. He kept people intrigued and wanting more, a good talent to have when you’re a novelist in the 1800’s. It’s probably this same talent that’s kept him as much alive today as he was back then, as a fascinating and loveable character.
Charles Dickens sadly died in his home Gads Hill Place aged just 58 years old, he was found unconscious in the kitchen of Gads Hill and was pronounced dead at the scene. He wanted nothing more than to be buried in Rochester Cathedral in an inexpensive ceremony but his wishes were never met, he was laid to rest in the Poets corner of Westminster Abby.
To find out more about the Life of Charles Dickens take a trip to Rochester where you’ll find all the history you need, ask the locals and find out what life is like now in such a historical town and are there any strange noises or goings on when the lights go out, maybe Charles Dickens is still roaming the streets!
From all at Pink Flamingo Boutique, Rochester we wish Charles Dickens a very Happy Birthday and feel honoured to be part of such a cultural and historical town!

Well who thought the UK had managed to get away with a coating of the white stuff this winter? We were hoping, but I think it was inevitable! Both our shops in Whitstable and Rochester woke up to a picturesque (but chilly) scene on Sunday morning after most of the South East went through a huge snow storm on Saturday night. Thankfully our wonderful Pink Featherettes were ready to open the doors to all our fabulous customers so you could still keep warm and shop for pretty things in our boutiques in Kent.
Here at Pink Flamingo we’ve been discussing ways to which we love to cosy up and keep warm on snowy wintery evenings like Saturday and here’s a few:
-          Mug of hot chocolate, biccies, fashion magazines, and a good film like ‘Confessions of a Shopaholic’ oh and don’t forget the Duvet Duck Slippers!
-          Cup of tea, BIG bar of chocolate, shopping online for all your fav fashion goodies (preferably at Pink Flamingo Boutique)
-          A big bubble bath, a good book, total pamper evening, followed by a manicure with a pretty Cath Kidston Manicure Set.
-          Or if you do decide to venture out to a nice pub with a roasting fire don’t forget your snow boots! The ultimate accessories in these wintery conditions.
Enjoy the snow everyone! Love the Pink Featherettes J x
