New Arrival: Falcon Enamelware

One of our favorite things this season has been the introduction of FALCON Enamelware at the shop. Since the 1920s FALCON has been an icon of British home life and timeless elegance.  We love enamelware for its enduring strength, is porcelain fused onto heavy-gauge steel, giving it many admirable qualities - durability, smoothness and chemical-resistance. It can assume brilliant, long-lasting colors, and cannot burn. If you drop it, it may chip but it won’t break. Dishwasher-safe and oven-safe up to 530F / 270C, it can also be used on gas and electric hobs.

So FALCON makes is to the top of the list of favorite gifts to give and to receive!

It has been a world wind summer around the shop and lots of travel and going ons, therefore the lack of postings! so as we settle into the new season I'm looking forward to sharing our happenings more often.

One of the great things that happened this Spring was an invitation from my friend Ying Chu who is the Beauty Director at Marie-Claire in NY, to be part of the marketing campaign for the launch of the new Donna Karan WOMAN fragrance.
I flew down to NY and was treated to a day of glamour and pampering  in preparation for our portraits to be taken by famous photographer  Brigitte Lacombe (Dream!)

After becoming a mom I had forgotten what a day to myself (in New York!) was like. Hanging out with one of my favorite girls (Ying!) was such a treat. Having been part of the campaign WOMEN WHO ISNPIRE made me really take a look about the amazing women I'm surrounded by and to feel really empowered to make a difference as a mom and entrepreneur!

See more of the campaign on the Donna Karan fragrance facebook page
