A bit about me...

Most of my blog posts have been about the business and my plans, so I thought it would be a good idea to give you a bit of an insight into who I am, the woman behind Polka Dots and Pearls. I've included some basic information, a few photo's relevant to me and my life and I've added some answers to random questions that I found on Google.

Here goes.

My name is Rebecca Ebbitt, I am 23, 5ft 10 and I was born in Lancashire, North West of England and I have one sister who is younger than me.


After completing my A Levels I went on to get an office job and studied Interior Design in my spare time.

I got married in June 2011 to my wonderful husband Nick. We met when I was 17, he was 24 and we have been together ever since.

After getting married I decided I wanted to combine my love for design, organising and planning with my love for everything retro and vintage, this was the start of Polka Dots and Pearls.

We have recently bought a 1971 VW Camper van called 'Doris', she is currently being done up and I can't wait to get to drive her this year. I have plans to use her in my business so watch this space.

I love travelling and visiting new places, my favourite places so far have been Kenya (My Honeymoon) and Thailand.



I made no new year resolutions this year, however I do intend on learning how to do victory rolls in my own hair.

I drink tea, go to the gym about 4 times and week and have just started Pilate's. I also want to start Roller Skating lessons. I have a love for stupidly high heels even though I am 5ft 10 anyway.

My favourite meals are sausage and mash, closely followed by fish, chips and mushy peas.
My favourite desserts are apple crumble and custard and cheesecake.
I like scones with jam and clotted cream, Milky Way crispy rolls and Curly Wurly', but I will eat most stuff.
When I go out I drink Kopparberg Cider, Vodka and Lemonade or the odd shot of pink Sambuca.

My first car was a Citroen Saxo, now I drive a Golf  TDI sport, and soon a camper van as well.
I have no pets at my house, but I have dogs that I grew up with at my mum's, a Springer Spaniel and a Black Labrador.

I have no children yet but they are something I hope for in the future. My favourite names are Jake, Owen and Lucy.

I don't plan an instrument, I can't sing or dance, I can't bake and I can't even do Roley Poly's. But I can cook, I am creative and organised and I like to have fun.

I don't really have a favourite colour but I do like red, pink and purple the best.

A random selection of songs I like are:       

'The Foundations - Build me Up Buttercup'

'Elbow - One Day Like This'

'Candi Staton - You Got The Love' (First Dance at our wedding)

'Talizman - Only You'

'Yuck - Georgia'

I think it was Friendly Fires, or Yuck. They were in the same week.

No, just some snuggly slippers. Maybe I should be though as it's a bit chilly.
