The guide

where to shop this June

We love to shop. We have our firm favourites but we equally adore finding hidden gems and disclosing our newly-discovered secrets with each other on a Monday morning. So we decided to start The Guide – a monthly edition to our blog where we reveal our hush-hush haunts. Share them selectively, you wouldn’t want just anyone finding out…

Edition #1

Our all-time favourites

We have quite a few of them. But we’ve been strict and stuck to the fabulous five for now. Some online, some actual stores, take a peek and get your wishlists at the ready.

For the garden:
The garden edit

A few words
Founded by English gardener John Tebbs, this is a site that pulls together stories and products inspired by the great outdoors.

Product pick
The blue-handled chopping axe by Spanish company, Rudo y Noble. The handle is carved from beech with a Spanish leather guard tanned with tree bark.

For shoes:
Grenson

A few words
This specialist leather label has been making the most beautiful footwear in the UK since 1866. There are timeless pieces as well as some classic styles that have been tastefully updated with a little bit of modern-day edge.

Product pick
Its slightly wedge-heeled brogues and loafers.

For clothes:
Everlane

A few words
This San Francisco-based start-up is still relatively unknown over on British shores, but it's beginning to gain pace. We adore it for absolutely everything – clothes, shoes, bags – be it for men, women or little ones, and for its simple but exquisite tailoring and honest pricing.

Product pick
As we said, literally everything.

For beauty:
Honest skincare

A few words
From candles to restorative skincare products, Honest is exactly what it claims to be. They use as few ingredients as possible and they’re absolutely always natural. Their ethos is lovely: we believe less is more.

Product pick
Balancing facial oil with chia, kiwi and clary sage.

For gifting:
Inka London

A few words
Their gift boxes are simply divine. All their pieces are hand-made (sustainably) by independent artists from around the world. Simple, pure, clean and utterly beautiful, it’s one of our go-to places for friend’s birthdays or for a little gift to ourselves.

Product pick
The Sunday soul box is a personal favourite.
