Brook&Lyn

i have been following Mimi’s personal blog Brook & Lyn for a long while, but somehow only recently discovered the beautiful jewellery she designs … i guess this is what happens when you intermittently follow blogs through google reader and don’t check in on actual websites often enough. i like the idea behind the glass necklaces which were inspired by the story of Mimi’s friend’s great-grandmother who, to deflect negativity, would wear a mirror under her blouse. they’re hosting a sample sale on the agate pieces for the next few days, go have a gander.

Fancy French Cologne Giveaway

the giveaway is now closed. winner to be announced soon.


i have been practically bursting to launch this giveaway thanks to the fantastic ladies at Fancy French Cologne. firstly because shop owners Carly & Christine focus on bringing emerging designers to the fore, especially in their product collaborations with designers in their Entre Nous section (french for “between us”). and secondly because the giveaway has a little something to do with Downton Abbey (!)

the Heirloom Silk Scarf is a collaboration between FFC & illustrator Kelsey Garrity-Riley featuring Lady Mary and various accoutrements beautifully illustrated on lightweight silk. wear it around your neck, use it to tie your hair up or hang it on your wall (which is what i would do so that i could admire Lady Mary in all her glory). however you use it, this scarf will tide you over till the third season of Downton Abbey debuts in September.

so to enter the giveaway all you have to do is sign up for the Fancy French Cologne newsletter on their homepage and leave a comment below. a winner will be picked at random on Tuesday 26 June.

please note that FFC ships internationally, but your package might be subject to your country’s import duties and taxes.
