Brief break in Devon


A few of you will now that we recently bought a house in Kingsbridge, Devon.  The house is rented out for the rest of the Summer so we took the opportunity for a few days away last week.  Here is Dora enjoying her first ride in a convertible.


So many wild flowers out at the moment.  This is the Estuary in Kingsbridge which is literally a 5 minute stroll from the house.

banthan beach, devon

Head to Bantham Beach and take a left up towards the golf course.  Get to the top and walk along the edge of the cliffs, amazing views.  Carry on further for about 25 minutes alongside the golf course and you will see a littel path leading down to a cove.  You will be rewarded with a secluded beach all to yourself .072

Worth the drive, this is the Britannia on the Beach at Beesands.  Bring your own booze and feast on an array of freshly caught fish and seafood.  Here’s the view from our table one evening. Fabulous.

The Brittania on the Beach, Beesands

Bye Bye Bright Pink Wall.  A secluded little corner of the garden which is work in progress.  We planted a few pots with herbs and flowers for the guests going in over the summer.

The Ale House Toad Hall Cottages

A final stroll alongside the Estuary to stretch the legs, lovely.


If you’re heading to the South Hams in the not too distant future, the Bear & Blacksmith in Chillington is most definitely worth a visit.  The owners grow all their own vegetables. Delicious dish of lobster with chorizo and other good stuff which we ate there last week.

Flatlay Friday Our Way


Katherine lay down on the floor so that we could photograph this cheeky little flatlay and Dora promptly went and joined her.  We are nearly out of stock of these Happy Pants (seen here in blue) but we will trying to get our mitts on a few more.  Worn with a Black St Tropez T-shirt in modal/cotton, £19.95

And now for some different linen

Gr Nature Linen Top

This linen brand from Lithuania is just fabulous.  Heavier quality which will really stand the test of time in classic shapes and colours which won’t date.  Annabel wearing this GR Nature top in a zingy coral.  Contact us for size availability.  £85.00


And here it is in Black.  Classic and just as good with white as denim.  Or Pale Blue option below.



Subtle grey and white stripes on this longer linen top with short sleeves.  £89.00  in a selection of sizes but best to call first to check availablilty.

How are you going to wear yours?

byeloise bangle bands

Playing around with a few bangle bands……these elasticated bands with silver or gold decorations might just be the perfect present at £4.99.  Slip it on your wrist and layer it up with your jewellery, or use to tie up your hair.  Always there when you need one.

Clever jeans

MosMosh cream embroidered jeans

MosMosh have been very clever with the design of these summer crop jeans.  Embroidered detail son the back with just a hint at the front so they don’t shorten your leg at the front.  Clever.  Seen worn here with a leather espadrille flatform in oatmeal, sizes 40 and 41 left in stock at £42.50 (were £85.00).  The jeans are a generous fit so you might need to go down a size.  Cream too….£109.00

Loose linen in 4 colours


These lightweight linen tops came into stock this week.  A more generousone-size fit as you can see on the size 10 Annabel.  Available in blue, pale pink, oatmeal and white.  £45.00155

Big Birthday Bash – Saturday 23rd June


We are celebrating our 9th Birthday at the end of this month with a Big Birthday Bash and you’re all invited.  Thank you to everyone who continues to support our little retail venture here in Haslemere, it means the world to all of us.

We’ll be marking the occasion with delicious canapes, a birthday cocktail devised specially for the occasion, free gifts with purchases and plenty of other good stuff, make sure you sign up to our email newsletter for the full details next week.   Tunes from the ’90s will be blasting out from the jukebox and we’re hoping to get a photo booth installed to provide us with some photographic  memories.

We hope to see you there!

Very pretty kaftans


We’ve just popped these new kaftans into the window.  A bit of a snip at £20.00 and just one size to suit all.  Throw this one over your swimsuit or wear over jeans.  The tassel necklaces are £15.00, limited stock folks.


Flew out but back in stock very soon

Ginny modelling her linen mix grey top with tassel detail.  We had a few of these in stock this week in a wide range of colours and they literally flew out of the shop.  You might be pleased to hear that they will be coming back into stock early next week, fingers crossed. £39.00 and just one size, slightly longer at the back too.

Ginny also wearing her MosMosh Sumner White 7/8th jeans – nice eh? £99.00 a few pairs left in stock in white, khaki, rose pink and scarlett.


Lithuanian Linen – a few more photos

GR Nature Linen Tops

A simple style but such an easy one to wear.  A classic which won’t date and you can be sure you will be still wearing it in 5 years.  100% linen with short sleeves and a flattering v-neck.  A very slightly loose fit to ensure comfort but not too long.  Now in stock in this warm coral, black or pale blue.  £85.00 sizes 36-42. Katherine is wearing a size 36.

There’s also this very pretty sleeveless version with frill detail around the neckline.  In a vary subtle soft white and grey stripe.  £79.00

GR Nature linen

And one more style on the left of this week’s window.  A longer top with pleat detail at the back and short sleeves, again in a subtle white and grey stripe. We can confirm it looks lovely on.  The dress in the middle has sold out in record time (which we’d ordered it in a few more colours).
