Our Woman in Progress this week is Elly, a makeup artist and hair stylist based in Cambridgeshire. She’s worked alongside some of the best makeup artists in the world at London Fashion Week, The Baftas, The Laurence Olivier awards, and many other red carpet events. Since going it alone in April 2015 she has gone from strength to strength and is now highly sought-after by brides and magazine stylists alike. Thank you Elly for fitting us in during the busy wedding season.Read More
Our Woman in Progress this week is Tessa Kiros, food writer and lover of travel. Tessa has written several award-winning cookbooks about food from all over the world. Her book ‘Falling Cloudberries’ is one of my favourite cookbooks - and I own A LOT. I fell in love with the cover, and even more in love with the writing and recipes (I make the slow-roast greek lamb from this all the time). If you don’t already have one of Tessa’s books, please do treat yourself to one. They're so evocative of places and memories, and are full of truly brilliant recipes and stories. We’re thrilled Tessa’s agreed to be our Woman in Progress this week.Read More
We're so excited for this week's Woman in Progress, Sara Delaney. Sara is a fashion stylist and blogger who first came onto our radar when we did an Instagram course together (not that Sara needed it!). Since then her blog, Notes from a Stylist, has become a bit of an addiction for us - not always feeling the most fashionable ourselves, style is something that we can at least aspire to. Sara's blog is gorgeously written, accessible and full of style tips and advice, as well as food, travel and tips for those with kids and teens. Thank you Sara for answering our questions!Read More
At the latest count, I think I owned approximately 493 notebooks, with which I will, I'm sure, construct my plans to eventually conquer the world. My stationery habit has been mentioned before, and it's given free reign to go crazy in the business of this week's Woman in Progress, Sidonie Warren. Sidonie founded Papersmiths, home of beautiful stationery, in 2012. We've been huge fans of Papersmiths for a while, and are thrilled that not only has Sidonie agreed to be our Woman in Progress, but also that she's now launching a new business, Two Palms, selling homewares and 'goods for the soul'. I feel some spending coming on...Read More
Our final Woman in Progress of 2017 is the wonderful Laetitia Maklouf. Laetitia's funny and informative Instagram feed (a nearly impossible combo to get right) is where we first 'met' and we've been hooked ever since. Whether you're a keen gardener or just starting out, her newsletter is one of our favourite emails of the week and a real motivation to achieve a bit of gardening every week. Sign up to it here.
We're thrilled that Laetitia's taken the time to answer our questions.Read More
This week's Woman in Progress is award winning portrait photographer, Laura Eperjesi. Laura creates timeless images which document family lives, and from experience we know that her photographs and bespoke books are ones to cherish - some of my favourite pictures of my children were taken by her. Laura found her soulmate at 19 and married him, 33 years ago, and they share three beautiful daughters. They've also had the chance to live and work in France, Guadeloupe, Jamaica and Hungary whilst bringing up their family, and are now based in The Cotswolds and London. Thanks so much to Laura for taking the time to answer our questions.Read More
Our latest Woman in Progress is Laura Lea from Laura Lea Design. Laura founded her Leytonstone boutique three years ago, and in that time her business has gone from strength to strength. Laura's shop stocks fantastic artists and designers whose work can't be found on the high street (it's a must-go place for great gifts) and Laura also organises pop-up exhibitions around London to expose the artists and designers she represents to new audiences. We're delighted she's taken the time to answer our questions.Read More
