summer memoirs

28th August 2015
Sometimes the Great British weather is simply perfect where the sun shines bright and the air is completely still, those are the moments where we get to make the best memories. A few Saturdays ago I treated two of my dearest friends to a luxury picnic nestled in the rolling Willen park hills behind our home. With spending so much time cooped up behind a computer screen, I long to get out into the fresh air and this was the perfect opportunity to do so. “Instagrammable” hamper full of delicious cheeses, warm French bread, home made guacamole (yes I know, I amaze myself) and couple of chilled bottles of Gallo Family Vineyards Spritz to wash our feast down. This was the perfect option for the Summer theme to our picnic with light and fruity flavours to accompany our treats. Both flavour options of Raspberry & Lime and Pineapple & Passionfruit, with their infusion of delicious exotic fruit flavours yet still maintaining the smooth taste did not last long. We spent hours talking, munching and laughing until our bellies hurt. Discussing future plans, goals and wishes, business ventures, home renovations and relationships past. Just simply enjoying being us in the most peaceful of environments. And as the sun set around us, I looked across at these two beautiful humans whom I am lucky enough to call friends and I realised that right there and then we were making one of those beautiful memories that will stay with us for the rest of our lives.

Hello April, the most exciting month of them all!
Ad Embarking on a journey of timeless treasures, my passion for antiquing began in the warmth of late summer 2019. When I discovered my father’s old boarding school tuck trunk nestled in the attic of their home. Since then, my weekends have unfolded like chapters in a novel, meandering through antiques emporiums and brocantes across the country.

Each trip unveils a tapestry of tales from bygone eras - from weathered pickling jars and vases to opulent French chandeliers and steamer trunks, and with each trip, I was captivated by the hidden secrets and untold histories woven into each artefact.

Introducing ‘Scented Mementos’ - an enchanting limited edition collection by @jomalonelondon Each fragrance, a symphony of memories, encapsulates the essence of cherished moments. Immerse yourself in the zesty allure of Emerald Thyme, or indulge in the spicy nostalgia of Ginger Beer, where notes of ginger, roasted oak, and cinnamon intertwine to evoke memories of British antiques markets.
where every scent is a love letter to the past, a fragrant homage to the beauty of antiquity. #ScentsOfBritain #JoMaloneLondon Paid partnership
