Those who know me know that I love independent brands (So much so that I started my own) But this isn’t about me! Recently I won a tote bag through Instagram from creative illustrator Kate who runs Merri and it’s become one of go-to bags for running around the city. It’s great for folding up packing in a handbag to pull out when you find that you’ve over shopped (just me?) or as its own cute carry all for running errands.
Kate illustrates animals which are then printed onto a variety of stationary and lifestyle products. The bear is naturally my favourite but i also LOVE the pink flamingos.
Today was all about getting prepared for the week. It was absolutely freezing and although I’m wearing four jumpers and a massive scarf it was still super cold so a pitstop for coffee was essential. If you ever doubt that coffee is the way to my heart please enjoy the closed eye sipping in the bottom photo!
