Enjoy summer

We’re off on our holibobs, as Jen would say. Hope you’re having an enjoyable summer and we’ll be back soon raring to go.

Image from Haco magazine, cool little fashion mag picked up in Hong Kong, man was I spoilt there – being a bit of a magazine and stationery fanatic. Really interesting layouts, photography, illustration and typography. The free stuff was absolutely amazing, Kate Spade purses, collapsible storage??? – very handy in our bus, but sadly I ran out of space in my suitcase.


Lovely packaging – Sarah Thorne for Topshop and Jack Wills

I couldn’t resist, I saw the beautifully simple illustrations, hand drawn and quirky, the products looked so wonderful together, a lovely coherent collection – really striking. I was hooked, I couldn’t help it and I may have bought a couple of items.

I loved the hand drawn text and illustrations, uncoated paper stock, small droplets used for the waterproof mascara and starry sprinkles for the highlighter. BeautifulWhat a clever lady Miss Thorne is, you can see more of her work here.


I didn’t realise Sarah had designed the packaging for Jack Wills fragrance too, saw it just the other week, I liked the soft pink on Kraft paper

5 more sleeps

Well, it’s only a few more days (5 more sleeps to be precise) before the big man arrives
& I really can’t wait. I’ve asked for snow, I’ve asked very nicely indeed, and I’m hoping
he’ll come up trumps. I believe in you Mr Claus, don’t let me down.

As of tomorrow we’re heading to our favourite place, where double rainbows happen and dreams come true. Merry Christmas everyone, hope you have a wonderful time & much love. xx
