Well hello there friends! I hope you had a terrific weekend and are enjoying a constructive start to the week… or, like me, are just about holding it together. In between my book writing (self-motivation can be a bitch) and sorting through the chaos that is currently my house (we are on a mahoosive decluttering mission here) I decided to take a moment (okay an hour) to make myself a little inspiration board that encompasses my current casual life in Cornwall whilst attempting to maintain some modicum of style – not as easy as it sounds. I was actually in the midst of creating mood boards for the book (yup, I am a mood board nut and make no apologies for it) and suddenly had the uncontrollable urge to share some of my recent fashion and beauty loves. I must admit I only possess one of these items at present (the Lavera cleansing milk), which I can confirm is totally uhmazing. Damn I love cruelty-free beauty, don’t you?

When I browsed through the Toast March look book this morning my heart actually simultaneously skipped and sank a beat when I first saw this gorgeous Tess sweater. I presumed the worst (I always do) and thought there must be some wool content but no, to my delight, it’s cotton – woohoo! These ‘Happenin’ Home Heel’ Bait shoes have been on my ‘i want, i want, i want’ list for a while now and by golly I shall have them… (or a similar style anyway because hey, guess what, these ones are currently unavailable, ugh). I hear that all their styles will soon be 100% vegan friendly –  music to my ears! The Paul by Paul Smith packable poncho is probably waaaay out of my price range but would be so perfect for our Cornish walks that can start bright and sunny, and end in some ridiculous thunder storm. Also, I could only find a Japanese shopping link for it, so apologies if I got your (my own) hopes up on that one. And yes, the Stella McCartney umbrella is (a) intended for children and (b) currently not in stock – can you blame ’em?! Something tells me there’s not a hoard of uber stylish kids swanning around with these (more like their Mums), and as soon as they’re back online, I shall be making a very swift purchase myself. Oh, and what about these Pickwick & Weller tees, eh? I realise I am so behind the times on this one but my goodness these are great… every style imaginable, I am in t-shirt hea-ven! Slight snag though, they currently do not ship to the UK (insert major sad face here)…. good thing I might be heading to New York in May when I shall endeavour to hunt these suckers down. Do I need to even explain why I adore these incredible House of Harlow coral sunnies? Nuff said.
