So, I’ve been back from my India work trip for a few weeks now… Throwing myself into Sage and Clare, adjusting to the extreme difference in weather, and actually enjoying some routine again. It’s also given me a chance to go through my snaps from the trip and reflect on the roller coaster ride that it was. Plenty of things went wrong, a few things went right, but most of all I’ve come home a little bit different to the person that left those many weeks ago. Which is why I’ve called this post ‘Journey to India’, because if there is one constant you can rely on in India (and there aren’t many!), it’s that the Subcontinent will certainly take you on a journey. And sometimes we need that… Here’s a taste of mine Xx

P.s. You’ll find some sneak peeks of the new range in this line-up! Very excited to launch this soon – stay tuned!
