I love to experiment with different styles and colours. I absolutely love patterns whether that be a simple floral pattern or a unique printed pattern. I love to dress up in different items and definitely have a bit of a shopping addiction with the amount of clothes I own in my wardrobe!!!
My favourite international clothing brand has to be Black Milk clothing. Based in Australia, they offer an amazing range of unique printed items. Over the years I have collected Disney princess leggings, snowflake leggings, a Christmas ribbon printed dress, a pumpkin printed dress and a spiderweb skirt. I absolutely love how each item is handmade and is made with such care. I always feel like every item I receive from them is of the highest quality.
My favourite type of clothing has to be the A-line skirt which I often wear with bardot tops for a cute, girly outfit. I often wear a black striped skirt with a black bardot top which has a particularly Parisian feel!
My favourite A-Line skirts..
Warehouse Metallic Paisley Print Skirt – £38
Monki A-line 70’S Suede Skirt – £60
River Island 70’S Geo Zip Front Mini Skirt – £30

This week my featured business is… Alfie Moon Designs!
I came across Alfie Moon Designs on my Twitter feed this week when a fellow small business retweeted their cute designs. I instantly fell in love with Slouchy the Penguin, Pete the Panda and the Alfie and Tommy Moon cats! These designs are printed onto mugs, tote bags, clocks and money boxes and are the perfect addition to any shopping trip, coffee table or desk at work.
There are several collections to choose from including the loveable characters, woodland animals and a mix of modern twists on vintage classics! I especially love these tote bags below featuring a fox and a print from Alice in Wonderland.
If you love your pet there is also an option to personalise a mug or tote bag with your favourite photo! These are very reasonable at only £7.50 for either a tote bag or mug.
If you are looking for a wedding gift this Summer then check out these cute printed ‘The Perfect Pair’ mugs, a cute gift for animal lovers!
There is also a fantastic range of wall art available on the website including the loveable characters and other prints. I especially like the music notes and Pete the Panda!

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!
