In a perfect world my first entry would be a perfectly worded and completely inspiring 2-3 sentence summary on what you can expect to see and read here on a regular basis. 

Having thought about these sentences for way too long now, and with a deadline looming (because writing a journal without a deadline means that 6 months passes before an entry occurs), I realize it’s quite hard to succinctly summarise something which in all likelihood will be a mish mash of fashion, art, people, places, #bonlife and possibly other things I haven’t even thought about yet.

So, to get things underway, and before another paragraph writes itself, meet Garance Doré, one of my favourite and most inspiring muses. I love Garance for her perfectly effortless and perfectly French style, her elegance, her naturalness and her open, honest communication style. Above all, I love the way she’s achieved such success with such grace (and a huge amount of talent). A beautiful and inspiring start point for a long, happy journal journey.  

I’d love you to be part of my bon journey so please check in regularly for updates on what I'm thinking, creating, wearing, feeling... Comment and I'll reply, feel free to share it and mostly, thanks for being part of the wonderful ride that is bon - I hope you enjoy it!

Merci x

these images share summery, vintage tones which take me back to my childhood.  colours are equally muted and vibrant - reminding me of the lollies we ate, the adults we wanted to be, and the big fake plastic jewels we used for dress-ups.  i hope this sparks a lovely trip down memory lane for you too x

a few of my favourite black + white images from the late 60's and 70's. these are all about shapes and composition.  they're clearly vintage but feel so modern, almost futuristic.  I love the creativity of that era, it feels so exploratory, but with incredible attention to detail and absolute respect for clean lines and white space.  my virgo heart sings when i see these images.

in the absence of seeing family this christmas - and all year - my sister gifted me a doily made by my great-grandmother.  it reminded me of the importance of little things, and that in the pursuit of 'the big thing' i'd lost track of what really matters.
