In the summertime I really love to light plain white candles in the daytime, there’s something so fresh and happy about them, but fragranced candles on the other hand tend to go back into cupboards as I find the aroma too overbearing at this time of year. Sometimes I switch up with diffuser reeds, I like the gentle steady aroma they give, but they are pretty expensive. So this year I thought I’d have a go at creating my own, it was so easy and really nice to think about the elements I wanted in my scent. So today I thought I’d share some tips with you on how to make your own bespoke summer fragrance which will flood your house with joy and evoke the smells of Mediterranean summers.Read More

I’ve been really flattered to be asked to do half a dozen or so interviews recently for other websites and publications and one thing that’s pretty standard in pieces of this sort seems to be questions on where one finds inspiration. I find that whatever other factors I mention, London is always the one I settle on most firmly, sometimes it’s cafes or what people are wearing on the tube, but always present at the top of mind when I’m thinking about this is the architecture. We are so lucky in this city to have such a diverse cultural range of architectural styles. There are no grand boulevards of the nineteenth century like Paris here (though I feel slightly uneasy that the property market is beginning to socially cleanse the inner city population along the same lines of Paris 150 years ago).
