The shop is called Coriander Girl and is owned by Alison Westlake, the flower arrangements which are a mix of dry and fresh flowers are so beautiful, and the attention to detail impeccable, we wish her lots of success!

I wanted to share my current obsession with CHANEL make-up this season specially their new lipstick "rouge coco" and their nail polish "Particulière", they are quick becoming my favorite colors of the season and anything in nudes and tans feels so delicious right now in fashion and for the home!
I'm also very inspired by creative director Peter Phillips, the way he talks so passionataly about his creative process is exactly how I feel about product at La Merceria.
