After brunch look

You have no idea how hard it was for me to keep my eyes open for these pictures. I had originally wanted to take the pictures before brunch but we were running late so we just took them afterwards hence the sleepy eyes. This outfit is a good example of the colour palette I typically […]

Brand focus | MrWonderful

MrWonderful is a Spanish brand that has the virtue of making me smile when I see one of their new illustrations or products. They started off with cute Spanish and Catalan sayings and are now doing English ones too. I use their canvas totes almost on a daily basis and I used to love their […]
