Look What I Found!

After months of researching and sourcing, the launch of Robin & Rose is ever closer. A few final changes, additions and it's all systems go.

I've posted some images to give you an sneek preview of the goodies that will be on offer. Most of my products were sourced at various trade shows in London, beautiful stationary made on recycled paper in the UK, pretty hats and scarves & jewellery boxes from Denmark and a very exciting find from Down Under, in the form of Mozi products. Pretty soaps in origami packaging, travel candles & wash bags

The best bit is the are all very affordable, so you'll even have money left over for all those Christmas parties.....which reminds me that there will be a selection of cute party clutch bags too.

The Beginning......

It all began last winter with a book, 'The Goddess Experience' by Gisele Scanlon. Her quest for happiness in the guise of a beautifully designed book asks that question "what makes you happy?"

After working in the fashion industry for 9 years and with the big 30 looming, this book made me realise that it was time to do something for myself, something that made me totally happy, after all life is too short.

Armed with my moleskine notebook, copious cups of coffee, rich tea, love hearts and months of research I'm almost ready to launch my online lifestyle boutique. As if that wasn't daunting enough, I'm delving into the world of blogging to track the ups and downs of being my own boss and creating my own little 'Goddess Experience'

Welcome to the world of online shopping, life in London and happiness!
