Introducing Sage

Screen Shot 2013-04-24 at 12.18.03 AM

I’m not sure if any of you have ever wondered where the name ‘sage x clare‘ comes from? Well, along with some exciting news, you are about to find out.

I have a twin sister and her middle name is ‘Sage’ and mine, you guessed it, ‘Clare’.

Whilst this blog to date has been entirely made up of my own sources of inspiration and musings, I am about to introduce Jemma ‘Sage’ as a regular guest blogger.

Living on the opposite side of the world to me (sad face), we’ve more or less got both hemispheres covered. Plus, Jemmi is pretty much everything I’m not – cool, a great cook, artistic, naturally blonde, a handmade card giver (causing me great embarrassment when I hand over my store-bought card), an expat, a no-fuss kinda girl, a music festival goer, a graphic and textile designer, a risk-taker, and an adventurer.

Gosh, if we were the same person, we’d be pretty well balanced!

Not only is she my best friend,  but she’s also constantly feeding me with super cool findings that have slipped through my radar. So it seems kind of silly not to have her sharing these inspirations with you too. From here on in, Jemmi will be guest blogging weekly with her latest and greatest findings.

So, introducing…. Jemmi!!!! I hope you enjoy having her around…

Love P x

Sea Change


It is pretty rare that a whole week goes by without me posting a thing. Is moving house a good enough excuse? After a pretty hectic week, we’ve finally moved into our new apartment, which we’ve waited 3 years to be built since apprehensively signing on the dotted line. Coming from a 3 bedroom house in the burbs, it feels like a novelty to be living back in the city. Something to be said for minimal living…

I have my lovely London-based sister to thank for this latest post. With a finger firmly on the pulse, she excitedly told me about the launch of & Other StoriesH&M’s latest endeavour. With interesting silhouettes, clean lines, and a design edge that is rare among retailers of this size, I can see this becoming an exciting and different mainstay on the retail front. And the real triumph – the shoes!! What are your thoughts? x

P.s. Thanks to all of you for your lovely comments recently. It makes blogging so rewarding!

Things I {actually} Love

A couple of months ago, following the release of Megan Morton’s latest book ‘Things I Love‘, I very nearly blogged about it. But having not seen the newly published book myself, I resisted, expecting it to be yet another interiors book that leaves you feeling underwhelmed.

So why am I blogging about it now? Well, on a shoot last week, I finally got my hands on this book as it sat pile high with other titles ready for propping. Stalking this book all day and awaiting a spare moment to flick through its pages, I was amazed when I found it to be so much more than a simple coffee table book. Bursting with hands-on tips, super cute postcards, uplifting images, and just that little extra Megan Morton magic, this book will be a sure favourite on my bookshelf.

If you’re feeling at all lacklustre right now, get yours here. It will leave you with feelings of cheer and light. Promise x
