Colour Me Happy


I was having one of those mornings… You know those mornings where it’s hard to get out of bed, the coffee hasn’t kicked in and there’s something wrong with your emails?

And then I stumbled upon the work of Starla Michelle…. And it just made me smile. Happiness on canvas I say!

From the Apothecary


Having trouble containing my excitement at the introduction of Fig + Yarrow on Sage and Clare. Rare that I get this excited about skin and body care, but in this case it really is worthy of all the fuss. Made in Colorado in a small artisan apothecary, every product is handcrafted from organic, raw and natural ingredients. And I don’t mean “natural”, I mean NATURAL… if you catch my drift.

The perfect Christmas gifts for both men and women, I’m considering gifting one of everything to myself! Don’t mind if I do… x

After a particularly hellish week involving all nighters, house-painting, my other half ending up in hospital for five days, and moving house (phew I cannot even believe all this happened in one week!), Bali welcomed us with the peace and time out we so desperately needed. More or less collapsing on arrival, after a full night’s sleep we dove into the spiritualism, hedonism, and rejuvenation that this island so wonderfully offers. Returning home only made bearable by the launch of Sage and Clare and that we’ll be returning next year to get hitched! x

After literally scanning the world map for potential destinations, we’ve decided upon the Greek islands – a place that I’ve been hoping to get to since about the age of 5!

Looking for a mixture of activity and total relaxation, Onar seems to fit the bill for the relaxation component. Located on the island of Andros, in secluded and hard-to-get-to Achla beach, this is the place that will begin our Cyclades island-hopping adventure. Rustic, peaceful, and in the middle of nowhere – we could not wish for anything more…

Now, where should we go from here?

I’m really not sure how I convinced my other-half to book spur of the moment tickets to Bali but I did! It is the design, architecture, peace, natural beauty, and creativity that continue to draw me there. November could not come fast enough x
