I love mood evoking fragrances like these ones from Industria. Created in conjunction with one of the oldest 
perfumer and candle makers in Tuscany, Cereria Migone (Est.1886) 

Bergamotto has a really fresh smell - perfect for the day with notes of citrus and bergamot, while Cardinalis is a more moody fragrance with notes of coconut and cardamom.

Available at Nola Boutique

Summer days

Thursday, 18 June 2015

At last the sun has decided to make an extended appearance and we can safely say that summer is here. 

I'm really pleased to finally be wearing some of the spring summer pieces I bought back in April, and enjoying having my hands free now that I've got this beautiful Loxley England rucksack to put all my things in. I've been wanting a rucksack for a while but couldn't decide on one until this beaut caught my eye. It's made from a lovely glossy full grain leather, lined with Liberty print fabric and it's the perfect size to take to work with me. 

Also loving these Laurence Dolige leather slides which, after a traumatic start (had to break these bad boys in) are now my go to sandal.

White lace ups

Wednesday, 10 June 2015

White lace up shoes remind me of those stylish 1930's women in episodes of Poirot. I've always wanted some but never found the right pair until now. These Hobbs 'Ardie Derby' lace ups are handmade in their Italian shoe factory using the softest leather. I wore them for the first time this week and they're SO comfortable. No breaking in necessary!

WATG // Part 2

Tuesday, 19 May 2015

Next up these Wool & The Gang accessories. So lush! I wanted to keep them all. And apparently really easy to make. Have you heard about the WATG knitting parties? Both the chokers and clutch are the perfect beginner pieces to try out if you're new to knitting or a bit rusty (like me). More info here.

WATG // Part 1

Sunday, 10 May 2015

Now that spring is breaking through (kind of) I thought it was the perfect opportunity to share some pictures from the shoot I did with Wool & The Gang. This first post wearing the Freya dress and Vivienne cardigan. Perfect spring time attire!

Shu Uemura and Kiehl's Brighton kindly asked me back for another VIP evening— an invite I swiftly accepted! This time I got to share the experience with a larger group of friends and I think it's safe to say we all had a fantastic time. We were treated to a demo of some of the iconic Shu Uemura products including my fave, the Shu Uemura Cleansing Oil. Plus of course we got to try out the gorgeous range of makeup for ourselves, all whilst sipping bubbly and scoffing posh chocolates. WIN.

Stay tuned for my purchases on the night!

I recently spent a fab day with Mint Velvet and fellow bloggers Alex Stedman of The Frugality, Freddie of igobyfrankie and Anneli of WhatIBoughtToday at the #MVStyleSeekers photoshoot.

After the long wait for spring to arrive it was a pleasure riffling through the Mint Velvet SS15 collections, picking out our favourite pieces for the shoot. As you can see from the shots above, mine included some great everyday items that I felt right at home in. 

Head over to the Mint Velvet blog to see Alex, Frankie and Anneli's picks, as well as an interview with me and more from behind the scenes.

My #MVStyleSeekers picks:
Khaki Relaxed Shirt
Baltimore Boyfriend Jeans
Leopard Zola Sandals
Ivory cotton knit
Black capri pants
