For all my fellow under-a-rock dwellers, here’s what you’ve been missing in the fashion world: slogans are everywhere. From tees proclaiming ‘fun bags’ to shirts covered in french phrases (which clearly I love, even though I don’t understand a word of it), clothing with a statement is big. You’ll have seen me rocking my fave slogan tee in this post, proof that I wholeheartedly love this trend. And now, with International Women’s Day just behind us — and Mother’s Day just around the corner — this Mother sweatshirt from understated British brand &Sons is the item I’m coveting most.
You know those people who always seem to be one-step-ahead of the ‘what’s happening’ scene in London? Yep, that’s not me, either. However, as there is a chance Stag and I will be saying goodbye to this wonderful city soon (more on that later!), I’ve been attempting to find out more about the going-ons and happenings. A zillion newsletters and daily emails later, I’m still not one of those people, but I have managed to learn about a few interesting happenings. One of which ended up being the most incredible art-meets-light immersive exhibition: teamLab’s “Transcending Boundaries.”
You may say Paddington Bear — Stag says ‘North Atlantic Fisherman” — but whatever image this yellow raincoat conjures, I’m okay with it. Because, for some unknown reason (see aforementioned references), I’ve always wanted a yellow raincoat. Actually, scratch that: I’ve just always wanted a raincoat. It’s only taken me 7.5 years of living in one of the wettest countries, but I finally took the plunge and bought something — anything — waterproof.
Part two of my ‘Can’t Live Without…’ Beauty series. Skincare (and hair) products are my absolute favourite. For one, I feel like it’s the closest you can be to an apothecary (which, as we all know, is the coolest of ancient professions). Secondly, it’s the category of beauty that aims to change for the better — rather than cover what’s wrong. It’s why I spend so much time (and money) on skincare products, and it’s why my bathroom cabinet looks a bit like a sorcerer’s chamber.
It’s beauty week here on Wolf & Stag! In this two-part series, I’ll be chatting all things ‘Holy Grail’ beauty — otherwise known as HG or “the products I can’t live without.” These are the beauty buys I’ve felt worth splashing my hard-earned money repeatedly — because they are just that damn good. In part one, I’ll be focusing just on makeup. In Friday’s Part Two, I’ll be delving into the apothecary-like world of good skincare.
