Happy Thanksgiving to all my US readers. We had a beautifully quiet day yesterday, with a simple dinner for four, lots of wine, pie (from here. THE BEST), mashed potatoes and an extra helping of good good vibes. I also had a great deal of fun providing a running commentary of the almost maniacally joyful Thanksgiving parade on TV (marionettes! Marching bands! Mariah Carey!) . I've come to love the decidedly un-English celebration that is Thanksgiving. It's such a beautiful holiday, devoid of any of the expense/anxiety of gift giving, with the simple joy that is eating a good dinner with the ones you love as its central tenet, and I simply can't find fault with that. This year, I'm thankful for so much- our fledgling business, my sweet husband and my inspiring, hilarious, gorgeous girl-team. I'm also so thankful that I found this little space on the internet to build upon. So I raise my glass to you, dear readers. Thank you for your support, I'm grateful. 

A poem for Thanksgiving

Muji's new pre-fab cabins are rad, but the website is also basically a spa experience

Why we all need to keep up with the Kardashians (gulp)


As the weather turns, I'm already craving a getaway at my favourite place to stay in Amurrica. I can almost smell that desert air


A super chic dress for holiday parties


I'm newly obsessed with this incredible lip cheek/stain that suits everyone


& Other Stories are also killing it with their lingerie. I love this


Burning this in my apartment takes me back to playing in freshly mown fields in the English countryside


Finally, a brand making (splurgey)  perfect pyjamas


Oh hi, adorable shoes


An amazing punch recipe for any hosting in your future


Ten heart opening yoga poses for days that leave you cold in more ways than one


A cute hold-all for a happy desk
