& Daughter SS22 short sleeve sweater

Just in: Sara Lanzi SS22

Sara Lanzi’s SS22 collection includes this striped taffeta drop-waist dress which lends itself very nicely to the trend for hard-meets-soft styling.

Shop the post: Indie gifts for Mother’s Day



Pott Lac candles and ceramic holder

Two recent discoveries on my radar for Mother’s Day* – or any other gifting occasion…

POTT CANDLES. Pott (above) is a candle subscription service offering handmade ceramic pots with refillable hand-poured scented candles. Choose your pot, then select your fragrance from a choice of ten (or an unscented one if you prefer) to get a new candle refill every month. The pots start at £30 (for the Petite size) and the subscription refills start at £10 a month (for the Petite).

If your giftee isn’t into subscription services (but who wouldn’t love this?!), Pott also sells individual candle pots. (more…)
