SHOP SHE’S LOST CONTROL: @SLC_London

She’s Lost Control was born as a free-flowing concept space amidst the ever-evolving creative hub of East London. It fuses the synergies of urban style with modern mysticism, taking an unconventional view of art, music, fashion and lifestyle. Proving that fashion and spirituality can live in harmony.

Founders Cheryl Eltringham and Jill Urwin, both players in the fashion industry, have thoughtfully curated an inspiring brand that showcases their obsession for self expression, through style and spirituality. With a focus on women and men's fashion, mystical adornment and homeware, wall art and music, She’s Lost Control is an inspiring platform with a unique point of view.  Images: SLC 'SHINE BRIGHT' CRYSTAL GREETING CARD £3.50, BISMUTH AILSA CRYSTAL PENDANT £165.00 and JILL URWIN GEM NEON TERRARIUM £120.00.


Pip and Nut Image

As a runner, Pip was always on the lookout for delicious things to eat before heading out into the great outdoors. As a firm believer that food should be super tasty, yet packed with nutrients and energy, she began making her own nut butters.

Determined to keep things simple, she removed refined sugars and palm oil to celebrate the mighty nut, then added other natural ingredients for an extra flavour kick.

Before long, Pip & Nut was being sold at Maltby Street Market in London, but Pip‘s small scale production just couldn’t fulfil the demand. Happily these days you can find their nut butters in most leading stores. Image: PIP & NUT COCONUT ALMOND BUTTER £3.95 YUM!


GETAWAY WITH PAPER NAVIGATIONS AMSTERDAM (14 SEP): @bookloverRAH

Rachel Hazell has over 15 years of experience taking people on creative journeys. She has held creative workshops across the world – from palazzos in Venice to lighthouses in Shetland via Antarctica. Rachel builds itineraries that develop skills, as well as expand the imagination, increase creative confidence and build lasting friendships.

Drawing her inspiration from the beauty of paper, the familiarity of a well-thumbed book, shorelines, flea markets and foreign cities; Rachel launched her online e-course PaperLove in 2014 to enable people, regardless of location, to work with her to develop their creative ideas and techniques.

Hosted in her favourite city to wander around in, Paper Navigations Amsterdam will see Rachel sharing her top papery bookish places and teaching you how to make your own unique paperworks. You’ll navigate the canals on your own exclusive boat, explore stationery emporiums and quirky bookshops, a library with a view and get a private tour of the Lloyd Hotel. The five days will be full of creation and discovery, charting and making! You'll take away map-fold books filled with personal paper navigations, in ink, paint, collage or text.
