Green, green everywhere
Everyone’s Irish on St Patrick’s day, across the globe parades will be watched and head-to-toe green will be donned in celebration of this notoriously optimistic nation. No one wants to be left out of the festivities, so whether you’re dyeing rivers green or simply adopting a sunny Irish outlook, don’t let this grand old day pass you by and be sure to raise a glass of the black stuff to the great St Patrick.
Before the lofty ambitions of becoming astronauts, chocolate tasters and vets, kids generally want to be in the Guinness book of records. Who didn’t spend endless weekends challenging their brothers and sisters to "how many crackers can you eat without sipping a glass of water" or even “how many times can you spin yourself around without falling over"? Your career as an astronaut may not have taken off, but make your inner child proud, fulfil your ambition and become a record breaker, even if it's just for the world’s longest coin spin.
The Emerald Isle may evoke images of the ancient Cliffs of Moher, the buzz of Galway or the romance and expanse of the beautiful Connemara. Ireland is a country truly full of character and it’s the character that has stolen people’s hearts from all over the world. Anyone who has ever spent time in Ireland will tell you the same, we encourage you to get lost in Ireland and it will stay with you forever.

Dear Mama, what would I do without you? You are my confidante, problem-solver and a bona fide original - no one could ever take your place. Thank you for teaching me to be myself, not to mention patiently instructing me on how to tie my shoelaces. Even when I was only a bluebird in the school play, you still sat proudly on the front row. Happy Mother’s Day - you are appreciated.
Summer flowers are blossoming. Classic and modern, contemporary and timeless; taking inspiration from nature is endlessly versatile. Choose pinks and creams, yellow and coral; then close your eyes and imagine the most beautiful garden your mind can conjure up. There are dresses for the quintessential English rose and shoes and bags for those who love how summer looks. Brighter, lighter and better: the garden’s where it’s at, so lets get flowered up.
Spring, the season of new life. A season where green shoots emerge and lambs lollop across the scenery. A season of new beginnings and discovery. Get back to nature with a travel system or baby carrier. April showers? Stay safe indoors with baby monitor’s and stair gates for your little explorers. Practice Al Fresco dining with a cool and contemporary high chair, then snuggle up at dusk with swaddles in an array of prints. Whatever the weather this Spring, be ready for your bundle of new season joy with our essential newborn collection.
Sneakers have always been the thing that I can't help but obsess over, as a teenager that obsession grew into a love of anything rare or remotely special and this is just the tip of the iceberg in terms of what I love. With a collection made up of more shoes and trinkets than I'd care to admit, I can honestly say from first person experience there is nothing better than being asked the question "Where'd you get those"
Style is not about a brand, it is all about you! What you do, say, how you carry yourself, what you wear and how you live. Each choice plays a part in creating the incredible you. We are ever evolving creatures, and the items below have either crept into my world already, or are on my wish list of desirable things. Create your own collection of visual happiness. Go with your gut instinct, and have fun putting together something beautiful.
Home is where the heart is, or in my case case where old meets new. My mates might call me a granny for the amount of salvage yards and junk markets I visit but I love the current trend of up-cycling! My home is full of distressed woods, leathers and suede finds from where ever I visit and these are my favourite online.
