    6. Marc Jacobs

HENRY | 36mm | £194.99

Love the silver and rose gold combo!  And it’s a little smaller than the Bradshaw by MK – might be a great choice when you want to tone it down a little or to add to an all-white outfit.

A classic that would fit in in everyone’s wardrobe.

5-Bullet Friday | July 2018

Hi All!

I thought I will start a monthly post series, covering 5 things I enjoy and recommend at the time of the post. Yes, this post is very inspired by Tim Ferris’s weekly newsletter, I hope he won’t mind!

Here is the first dose of “5-Bullet Friday”:

  • Book to read —    

Fahrenheit 451 – a dystopian novel by Ray Bradbury.
Trust me.

  • Best shopping finds —

I always am so hopefull when the sales season comes but I end up buying only a few select things! This month I finally got a brown work/everyday handbag, after months of trying to find the perfect one with the perfect shape, size and colour! Finally, I came upon this Michael Kors beauty, Selma!

  • Blog to follow — 

Little Grey Box – I stumbled upon it on twitter couple of weeks ago and it became one of my favourite blogs! Here is an excerpt from their about page:

Hi! We’re Phoebe and Matt, award-winning Australian bloggers and professional travel creatives.

A few years ago we both realised we were unsatisfied with the way our lives were going and decided to leave our jobs to pursue our dreams. It was a big decision and a scary moment but it was also incredibly exciting and, hands down, the best thing we’ve ever done. Now, we travel the world creating useful guides and fun travel videos aimed to inspire and entertain.

Phoebe is a travel writer and photographer with a love for storytelling and making people laugh. Matt is a videographer and photographer with a passion for the great outdoors and big adventures.

  • Current obsession — 

Tiny houses – I cannot stop watching Youtube videos about them! It is somewhat an increasing trend wave and I cannot say I blame people for being interested in the concept. Minimalism and conscious living is something we should all learn more about.

 

I hope you have enjoyed my interpretation of a 5-Bullet Friday. Please let me know what you think in the comments below!

Have a wonderful weekend, all!

 

Love,
Hewnly

‘The muse is not an angelic voice that sits on your shoulder and sings sweetly. The muse is the most annoying whine. The muse isn’t hard to find, just hard to like – she follows you everywhere, tapping you on the shoulder, demanding that you stop doing whatever else you might be doing and pay attention to her.’ Harlan Coben

Beach, Please: 45 Great Beach Towel Designs

Can you believe that half of the summer is gone?

As I am typing this from the very sunny, very hot Sardinia, it’s so hard to believe!

My holiday will be over in a couple of days (aarrghh) but I do hope to fit in a quick getaway there and there by the end of summer. And what’s best when you are chilling on the beach? A very cool beachwear!

0027

This season, besides all of the swimsuits (5 to be precise, hehe), I’ve found myself excited about.. beach towels! Not your regular chain store ones you’d mindlessly pick up before a seaside visit. No, I mean an inspired design to wrap yourself in, which you know will stand out.

Check these designs below from Society6, a home to thousands of artists from around the world selling their original work as fine art prints, apparel, and yes, beach towels.

Style Files | Scandi Uniform

The big Scandinavian style hype started sometime in the early 2015s and since then it became a wardrobe staple for many. I too admire the clean lines, minimal shapes and monochromatic colour palette of the “Scandi Uniform”. I like how versatile it is and how easy it is to glam it up with key accessories or statement shoes, can be dressed up or down for work or play.

Here are a few of my favourite Scandi looks that I came across on Pinterest

The black, navy, cream and grey items are mix-and-match heaven and absolute must have in my wardrobe. Each season I add a few key trend pieces, pop of colour and interesting details to make it more fun and me. This season I am obsessing the statement sleeve trend and starting to bring in more light colours for the warmer days, especially soft dusky pink (the bright fuschia is a little too strong for my taste). Currently, I’m on the lookout for a good camel/sand coloured trench coat, any suggestions?

Hugs,
Hewnly
