I’ve recently got really into drawing! Usually I’m not very good at it but I do find something quite relaxing about it when I’m just copying a design. So I recently jumped onto Pinterest and scrolled through to find a few cute Disney designs and now I’m even contemplating getting one as a tattoo! What do you all think? Any recommendations as to which character I should draw next?
This week my featured business is… My Flash Trash!
My Flash Trash are a jewellery business based in London. I first came across them at a Pure London event as I spotted their mini trash cans and thought they were such a unique, cool way of storing jewellery! They were originally founded by Amber Atherton who developed a blog into an online marketplace for up and coming jewellery designers. My Flash Trash now has a celebrity following with everyone from Rihanna to Beyonce, Cara Delevingne to HRH the Duchess of Cambridge.
They specialise in charm jewellery and specifically a unique style of charm bracelet. I love charm bracelets as they’re such a cute way to keep memories with you and My Flash Trash offer a range of different charms for every occasion. I have included a couple of my faves below!
I absolutely love their quote: “we create playful and bold accessories to bring out your sassy side. we share a passion for not taking life or fashion too seriously, and believe in empowering girls to run the world.” I love the playful nature of this business, emphasising that girls just want to have fun!
My Flash Trash has recently also just launched in Topshop so make sure you head down to Topshop Oxford Circus to check out their range of fun charms available and why not personalise your own!

I first came across this independent clothing business on Twitter and absolutely fell in love with their clothing. Launching in 2014 they are based in London and have produced collections that include hoodies, T-Shirts, bomber jackets and beanie hats. Each item includes either a really cute fox emblem or a beautiful typography of their Foxford Vintage logo making each item unique.
They have both womenswear and menswear collections and every product looks as though it is made to the highest quality. Prices are very reasonable ranging from £9.99 for a beanie hat to £49.99 for the bomber jackets.
My absolute favourite item is the Foxford bomber jacket. It looks so comfortable and warm! I have also put a couple of my favourite items below including a couple of cute T-Shirts so you can see how beautiful the typography is. All the items are perfect for Sunday lounging around or walks in the park.

Coco & Sebastian create absolutely stunning printed scarves which are inspired by the travels of Princess Coco and Sebastian. (Read their full story on their website by clicking here.)
I will be focusing on the Spring/Summer 2015 collection in this post but please go and check out all their ranges. Each collection is so unique and their lookbook images are some of the best I have seen! I felt so inspired by them!
The Spring/Summer 2015 collection is full of gorgeous prints including a beautiful frog scarf, an image of a bear and of other insect and beetle inspired prints. The collection was inspired by the Garden of Eden. The colours are beautifully intertwined with the intricate detail of each individual pattern which is what assists in making these scarves so unique. I will definitely be taking one on my holiday to wear on the beach and in the evening. To demonstrate the detail of one of these scarves I have included the frog print below and a couple of additional favourites!
Whilst browsing the website I also came across the new Autumn/Winter 2015 collection. It’s always good to keep a season ahead and I absolutely love what Coco & Sebastian have planned! Their collection is inspired by folklore and I love how they have combined so many different patterns, colours and lines into the print. They look even more fantastic when you hold the scarf up to a window or light as that is when the true intricate detail comes through.
Do you have a favourite scarf from these collections? I’d love to hear what you think of them!
Ismad London, set up by founder Isabelle in 2003 is eco-friendly leather accessories business with beautiful bags inspired by handcrafted African crafts. What I loved most about these bags is how beautifully handcrafted they look, as though a lot of care has gone into the manufacture of them. I’m not usually a fan of leather accessories, but after looking through the pieces on this website there are a few that I have absolutely fallen in love with including the Alice Bag, Camera Small and the Sac A Dos collection.
The Alice Bag is one of my absolute favourite pieces on the website. A sweet, compact girly bag which is practical and has the ability to match with any outfit. It comes in a range of colours including Tan, Black and Chocolate with a number of pockets and an adjustable shoulder strap. I love the chocolate colour, shown below, which I would probably wear with a pretty floral dress in the spring. It is currently £89 with free shipping.
For bloggers like myself, having a camera is a necessity. The Camera Small bag provides the perfect solution for carrying not only the camera but any additional batteries and components you may need! It has two pockets at the front with individual buckles and a main compartment also with a buckle offering a secure fastening. I’m usually a bit funny when it comes to buckle fastenings as those bags don’t usually have much security for valuables however this bag is fantastic as it offers a zip compartment too! It is also available in a range of colours and is produced using eco-friendly leather. It is currently £89 with free shipping.
Sac A Dos is great for those who enjoy travelling. It’s great for a day trip that I would take out sightseeing or on trips over the summer. It has a great main pocket and a smaller pocket located on the front with a buckle fastening. It also has a fab secret pocket at the back which is perfect for storing any valuables! It is currently priced at £75 with free delivery.
