The texture of our colour crush lipsticks are to die for! 😍💄🤤 I couldn’t go a texture Tuesday without posting some colour ‘crush’ed satisfaction. 😜 Pop in store and swatch the creamy, dreamy formula for yourself!
Our tiles aren’t always square, or even round. Our sculptural tiles can be any shape, and here’s a set of monarch wings getting ready for shipping. When we say “send us your dreams and let’s make something new together” we mean it - we love integrating the study of nature with the study of function and form - and we love a new challenge. What ideas do you have, what forms of nature and life would you love to co-create?
#ad With wedding season being at its hype, sorting out outfits for me and the kids is not always an affordable option. I was stressing a lot as you do need way more than just a dress: shoes, accessories, bag etc. That's how I discovered @clearpay_uk - easy and convenient online shopping where you are allowed to purchase the products and pay later over 4 fortnightly instalments, all interest free! Brilliant, isn't it? #clearpay makes budgeting way easier and (don't tell my husband) makes me feel less guilty spending. Some of my favorite stores are on there, you should check it for yourself by visiting www.clearpay.co.uk Now, I am at ease, that we are all wedding(s) ready, from head to toe thanks to #clearpayit . . . . . #clearpayconfessions
You've cultivated a following...now how you gonna get them to bloom? Growing a loyal following is harrrrrdddd work. It requires daily attention, nurturing and love (yes really!) So here are my top tips to keep your audience engaged. ✨Connect regularly with them. Go see what's on their feed. What are they up to? If you like what they are doing, let them know with a like, a genuine comment and even better, a follow. ✨Give them an opportunity to get involved. Yes asking a question is great but only do it if you are genuinely interested in the answer (I have learnt sooo much from you guys!). Questions, Polls and sliders are brilliant on Instagram Stories. USE THEM! ✨Give them what they want. If you sell fish...don't start posting about high heals (unless they are special ones for fishing?) If you want to post more personal stuff..really think about its relevance first. ✨Don't be salesy. Don't try to sell something on every. single. post. Yes you are marketing a business but be more human. Because, as well as products or services, you are also selling a feeling, or an aesthetic and that's what people buy into most. ✨Be Small. Big businesses marketing themselves on this platform have chains of command. You don't! Go for it. Don't be afraid to experiment with bold ideas. By the way....I've finally created a link in my profile, hit it up if you want to find out how I could help your business or sign up to receive free Instagram knowledge bombs straight to your inbox 💣 #colourstory#colourinspo#colourlove#slowlifestyle#aquietstyle#mybeigelife#persuewhatislovely#everysquarestory#doorsofinstagram#the_gentle_manifesto #quietchaotics#inspire_and_create #doortraits#super_ordinarylife #myeverydaymagic#seekinspirecreate#slowmorning#thatauthenticfeeling#colourcrush#inspirationeverywhere#londoners#londonstreets#mysecretlondon#prettycitylondon

‘Everyone chases after happiness, not noticing that happiness is right at their heels.’ Bertold Brecht said it and I, for one, believe it. It applies to so many things in life. We’re often so busy, hungrily pursuing the perfect - relationships, bucket lists, jobs and beyond - that we forget to be still and see joy communing all around us. I was reminded of this as I sat at the Rail House Cafe this morning and, out of the corner of my eye, spotted a thing of immense colourful beauty that set the pleasure centres of my brain on fire. This colourful picture, I discovered, was painted by Yuri @yuriau whose brunch on the next table I rudely interrupted (sorry, ladies) to quiz her about it. Turns out that during the day, Yuri is a super-busy PR whose company Linkup China connects businesses in China with opportunities in the UK (and vice versa) but by night, Cinderella-style, she transforms into a painter as a way to help her relax and wind down (this picture was painted for one of her brunch pals and she’d met up with the purpose of giving it to her). If I’d spotted Yuri and her modest unveiling of this gorgeous art in the past, I’d have merely banked the image in my brain and moved on, too embarrassed to question it any further, but kicking myself that I hadn’t. Now, however, it would seem I’ve lost such inhibitions (age?) and if I see something incredible (and usually colourful) I’m not afraid to share what I’m thinking. As a result, my world gets richer and more colour-packed with every passing day. My advice to you? Make sure you notice the happiness right at your heels (like Yuri’s painting) then tell everyone (including the joy-giver themselves) all about it. You won’t regret it.

🇬🇧Today was a grey day, but still warm enough to go without a jacket, and just the right weather for this top, another #secondhandtreasure which will be a massive favourite of mine I think. I mean... just look at the colours and the pattern 😍😍 Cardi, trousers and shoes all made an appearance or two earlier in the month, but I enjoy how many different outfits I can create with them :) . . . 🇭🇺Ma jó kis szürke idő volt, de még mindig elég meleg ahhoz, hogy kiskabát nélkül se fázzak, és pont tökéletes ehhez a #turikincs fölsőhőz, ami már most látom, hogy óriási kedvencem lesz. Nézzetek ezeket a mintákat és színeket... hát nem tökéletes? 😍😍 A kardi, nadrág és a cipő szerepelt már egyszer-kétszer a hónap során, annyira élvezem, hogy ilyen sok különböző szettet tudok alkotni velük! . . . #wardrobestaples#secondhandseptember#cardigangirl#cardigang
