A lovely little surprise landed on my desk this week! I've always been a little in love with handmade soap and Maple's Oatmeal and Lavender has been a favourite for a few months now. It's been a lot of fun trying all their other fragrances (although it's very hard to open such beautiful packaging!) and they sit perfectly on my bathroom vanity along with white cherry blossoms which have just come into season.

Thank you Maple!

feeling blue


 It's be an unseasonably warm winter so far. I'm loving sunlight trickling through the windows, early morning walks
followed by delicious breakfasts and dressing as though it's spring.

These are a few of the beautiful things I'm wearing and loving right now.

1. 3.1 Phillip Lim Sweater with Jacket Sleeves, Balenciaga Perfume
2. VPL Stripe B Bra, Grown Alchemist Deep Cleansing Masque
3. Gillian Tennant Printed Silk Shorts

on the weekend

Finding old references and making them new again, taking a bit of time to paint my nails and use a face mask, buying fresh flowers, keeping cosy with my favourite throws and a classic scarf and enjoying the winter sunshine.

in my studio

A little look at my studio space in our old apartment is now up on Sportsgirl.
Missing the natural light and beautiful garden views! Will post pictures of our new place once it's
organised and decorated (we're getting there!).

Love the new Glassons campaign shot on the East Coast and starring Petra Collins and Staz Lindes.

So looking forward to Summer and already adding the ripped skinny jeans, pocket striped dress, denim playsuit
and anorak to my new season wishlist!
