“They are handmade”

I was recently asked about the manufacturing process of my straw bags which I was happy to respond with “They are handmade”.
My straw bags are all handmade by local artisans in Morocco & Ghana. As with any product handmade, quality is above and beyond mass produced straw bags.
All my Coconut Lace bags are beautifully hand woven with great attention to details, and workmanship.
Shop our full collection and I hope you enjoy them as much as I enjoy personalizing them.

Hair Tips

I don’t fuss with my hair. Its naturally curly and I have finally made peace with it. Only when I am feeling sassy I will blow it out!
I have though gotten into the habit of not trimming it the recommended 4 weeks, till recently. I will add that my hair grows painfully slow, so my thought was don’t trim it so it will grow. Terrible advice!
I got it trimmed last month and within days I was getting so many compliments on how healthy it looked! So a new habit has been started and this past weekend, I got a follow up trim exactly 4 weeks later.‎
I thought keeping a very low key grooming ritual for my hair would benefit it since I was only aging it (yes you can age your hair).
So regular trims are part of the new hair routine and fingers crossed, here is long and healthy hair!

Metallic Gold

Joe Fresh shift dress & tights, Jeffrey Campbell oxfords, Danier Jacket

A few weekends ago I picked up this houndstooth printed shift dress. The oversized print really was the reason I had to have it (the dress is actually two sizes to big for me but a shift dress is very forgiving).
I paired it with a classic thin striped tights and a pop of colour with metallic gold oxford.
