We’re having trouble wiping the smile off our faces after finding a post about sage and clare on Rebecca Judd Loves! What a huge compliment!! Not only is she the most gorgeous Mum and weather presenter ever, but she’s always been a source of style and design inspiration…  Check out the post and her awesome blog. Thank you Bec!

Countdown-3

Have you ever taken a big leap of faith? Done something that has terrified the hell out of you? Followed your heart, no matter what sensibilities your head is thinking? Put yourself out there so wholeheartedly that you are completely laid bare? Dared to dream of the unthinkable?

Well you and me both… After dedicating the best part of two years to this project, I am one sleep away from taking a big deep breath and sending this out into the world for everyone to see. I am half part petrified and half part ridiculously excited. Wish us luck! x

P.s. Share your story – I’m sure you all have one. And if you don’t, start working on it!

Get Your Priorities Straight

Despite the fact that things are hectic on my end with last minute launch prep, nothing can distract me from the unveiling of Isabel Marant for H&M tomorrow. Fingers crossed H&M’s site doesn’t crash (as has been the case in the past), because this time around I don’t have a spare few hours to persevere!

Have you got your wish list finalised?

When my email popped up saying Merci had launched it’s online store, the hellish tube ride to work quickly vanished from my mind. Instead, memories of my last trip to Paris came flooding back – to be specific, stumbling into Merci and quite truly believing I’d found heaven in a shop!

So much more than a shop, Merci has heart  –  and a very big one too – combining luxury consumerism and philanthropy by donating all profits to education and development projects in Madagascar. The owners simply wishing to pay it forward and say – “MERCI to life!”

While being French is almost a guaranteed pass on the style front, Merci could exist anywhere in the world and still take your breath away.

If like me, you don’t live a train ride away from Paris (just let me gloat!) then Merci online is a far more accessible option; opening up a world of linens, Merci medallions, ridiculously stylish plates and bowls, oh the list could go on!  Admittedly, it doesn’t quite capture the true amazingness of the Marais store, but it does give you a pretty good taster.

Margiela Mayhem

 

Who partook in the madness of Margeila for H&M yesterday? Finally released after much anticipation, it seems the collaboration launch was not without the standard website crash, the overnight queues, and the crazy that seems to come out with a limited edition designer collab at affordable prices (no judgement – I would lump myself into this category too).

I was bang on time, jumping on to their website and breezing through the initial stages of adding to my cart – I was almost disappointed at how easy it was appearing to be. I mean – why hasn’t the website crashed yet? Mmm… spoke too soon.

It all went wrong at the most important sealing of the deal – payment. After failing all my security questions (what the hell – that was my cat’s name!) my card was officially blocked and I was left to deal with the devastation. I then called my bank in a state of hurried panic – apparently shopping on H&M is not an urgent matter and the call centre was closed. What the hell? What kind of self-respecting bank has calling hours? And who doesn’t understand the urgency of this situation?

But then, a glimmer of hope… turns out the trusting folk at H&M will send out your parcel with a payment slip inside. Seems too good to be true – who sends you something and trusts you to pay later? But then, the website CRASHES. Great.

With some seriously persistent refreshing, I won out and this oversized pea coat will be mine! Had to sleep in this morning after my night of adrenaline-filled fun and dismay (what a rollercoaster) but I woke up feeling that little bit more satisfied that next winter I’ll be strutting around in my dream coat.
