1. If you can’t be bothered to shout it, say it with a gorgeous mug. We are big proponents of #banbossy, slick typography and hot pink peonies because these are all excellent things to love and support. This right on and rather lovely mug/flower vessel/receptacle by Miss Poppy Design is the only thing we want to see our blooms in this summer. Come the winter months, it’ll be the mug we’re most likely to be seen peering over the top of, suspiciously eyeing co-workers while pretending to function normally at 8am.
2. Amy Blackwell‘s illustrations and beautiful prints are bringing us joy this month. We especially love this pink hand-printed cacti design. Warm colours, warm climes and their subsequently spiky customers are basically all we’re into at the moment. With the desert plant revolution in full swing, we advise you to snap one of these babies up before everyone else does. Cacti = cool.
3. Sophie’s Boutique is a wonderful one-woman fashion line based in Kent. One of Twitter’s best kept secrets, each set is handmade using luscious patterned fabric and shipped out to lucky followers. Although we love everything that Sophie makes, this flamingo set nails our hot and sweaty summer-themed wishlist for the month and looks incredible. We do however have a soft spot for the shimmering mermaid-esque two pieces and sunflower playsuits in her amazing collection too.
4. NEONLDN know where it’s at. A fantastic new creative store, their products are all super bright, like, really bright. These sweet dip-dye pillar candles stand to make your life even brighter. Plus, dip-dye is really cool right now, right? We want everything in their shop!
5. The Protein Journal is top of our must-have reading material list for the summer. From cover to cover it’s a beautiful publication packed with insightful articles and outstanding images. What better theme to accompany our bright, summer-inspired wishlist than the pink ‘Play’ issue? It’s left us feeling chilled, inspired by social entrepreneurs and perplexed by the unbridled power of technology.
