#IndieLove Day 6 – Mod Dolly Clothes & Accessories from London

I met Amy from Mod Dolly about 4 years ago, when I modelled for one of her clothing collections on a photoshoot with fellow blogger and now photographer, Emily Tyler. It was the same day I met Sara from Hello The Mushroom too who was helping on the shoot. Anyway, if you don’t know this little brand from London yet, you should! If you’re looking for classic, timeless clothing with a vintage twist, that are handmade & good quality, you’ll be a fan I’m sure.

#IndieLove Day 5 – Baccurelli Acrylic Jewellery and Doll Designed Wares

Baccurelli felt like an especially lovely next brand to feature after I got in touch with them to see if they wanted to get involved, as they mentioned a mutual love for yesterday’s team, Sugar & Vice who helped Baccurelli figure out setting up their biz. Today’s #IndieLove team is made up of graphic designer Meli and her husband, Hugo and they are based in sunny L.A. I stumbled upon them via Instagram not that long ago and instantly fell in love with their geeky, 60s vibe designs, particularly Meli’s sweet doll designs.

Setting challenges and making changes…

The idea of committing to doing something positive to myself to develop some ideas I have every day and sticking to it, all started when I moved to Spain four (five?! WTF?) months ago. I was supplementing the language lessons I started using the app, Duolingo which rewards you for sticking to a routine, it quickly got me committed to learning, which made me think there was more to this daily challenge thing. Before this I’d been kinda anti-routine and used to get frustrated and bored by doing the same things all the time, recently I’ve started to see the value of a routine and what it can do to positively influence you and the people around you.

Jayne’s Alternative Guide to Black Friday 2015

I kinda feel a bit weird about Black Friday and Cyber Monday being a thing in the UK now which is supposed to be the post-Thanksgiving sales, it is just a big marketing excuse for companies to make more money and genuinely fuels a bit of insanity of people buying pointless stuff that they don’t really need. However, it’s not just the big corporate brands out there that are taking part now, so I wanted to take some time to highlight some of the small, indie and alt brands that are out there that would appreciate your money quite a bit more than those big companies.
