Excitement levels here are H-I-G-H!
As you may have spotted on the heka instagram feed, we’ll be at the Seekology pop up in Notting Hill, London this Christmas. The shop will be stuffed to the brim with lovely independent beauty and wellbeing brands and I'll be popping in to offer Christmas shopping advice with other brand founders, along with the highly experienced Seekology team. AND there will be a rather good special offer on heka products :)
So, if you're in the area, please do come and say hi at 2 Blenheim Crescent W11 1NN from 16th– 24th December.
I'll be doing most, if not all, of my Christmas shopping in the pop up and surrounding area; Notting Hill is just oozing with gorgeous independent shops and if you're a fan of the films Notting Hill or Paddington 2, you'll see some familiar sights too. I've also been inspired by Holly Tucker's colourful new shop independent campaign (see above pic). Here are some tips to help you plan your festive outing...you'll be rewarded with the most unique and colourful finds for your loved ones.
Once you’ve ‘done’ Seekology it’s literally a couple of steps to….
Ceramica Blue; from jewel coloured glasses to lava beakers and bold platters, this shop is pure heaven for homeware enthusiasts.
And then in no particular order…
Couverture is close by and is an inspirational concept store packed with things you just won’t see anywhere else (fashion for men & women plus homeware).
Jessie Western on Portobello Rd is a treasure trove of sustainable Native American Indian fashion & jewellery for the boho babe in your life.
The Cloth Shop on Golborne Road for gorgeous vintage fabrics, blankets and beautifully curated homeware.
Lisou where bold, happy, African inspired prints jump out at you. Pricey but stunning to look at! Head to 302 Westbourne Grove.
Sezane is also on Westbourne Grove and is a Parisian haven selling gorgeous women’s & men’s fashion.
Book lovers will love rummaging in the dedicated Oxfam bookshop or the more specialist Lutyens & Rubinstein, while vintage lovers need to head to Portobello Market for antiques and more. Remember to check out which is the best day for you.
And for truly sustainable shopping there are tons of fantastic charity shops around including Fara on Elgin Crescent.
After all that refuel at Ottolenghi. I mean, who can resist anything in those window displays?!
