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

it's a widely known fact that menopause means hot flushes and alcohol induces these hot flushes.  safe to say, much of the 'here to help' literature around menopause recommends an alcohol free existence to keep flushes under control.  this sits well within the societal move towards zero alcohol adult beverage alternatives, and the mental and physical benefits of an alcohol-free lifestyle.   if you want to punch those articles in the face, read this.
