So I mentioned I would do some shopping posts in the few days I am away - next up introducing the Ellsworth earrings with a little discount for you. Just recently launched, these statement earrings are the business believe me, they are the *perfect* shape and size👌🏻 Inspired by artist Ellsworth Kelly, they are made from birch wood and brushed brass with sterling silver backs. The second image gives a bit of context/scale and you can read a bit more by clicking the shopping icon on the image 🖤 #statementearrings .

These beautiful timers. Another shopable post too. I sometimes use mine for timing things that I don’t want to use my phone timer for, like meditation, taking breaks and counting to 10 before reacting 😝 I’ve had lots of great conversations with customers about how introducing a non-phone or gadget time keeper helps them in every day life. No bleeping or artificial light, just sand flowing effortlessly. So good for trying to be more mindful of our activities in this mad world. Restocked today - the blue one is new 💎 - and available to buy now through this post 👆🏻and I’ll have it winging its way to you tomorrow! (Carefully wrapped in lots of protective wrap - recycled from incoming orders wherever possible👌🏻) #clickandcollect #shoppable

Is shopable a word? Shoppable? Shop-able? 🤔

One day of not raining and I’m straight onto the palm tree vibe 🌴 😉
Introducing @fermlivingkids and the Palm cushion (good friends with the Monstera leaf cushion as seen instore 🖤) Here’s a bit of info but check out the link in the image for more: it uses the loop knitting technique that makes the motifs three-dimensional and finished with brass metallic zip detailing and a canvas back. Absolutely for the big kids too. I want one. 🏝🏝🏝

How happy are we all to have a bit of sun after that 10 month winter 😝😝😝☀️☀️☀️

Beautiful arrangement by @anderson_carly making me want to light some candles and not leave the house again until it’s warm outside! 🖤 #merakicandles #edinburgh #lifestoryedin #shelfiestyling #stilllife #edinburgh #shadowhunters

Neighbourhood, Day 3 #myshoplife2018
📍London St, ever confused with Broughton Street which it backs right onto fair enough, and on the roundabout ops @mansfieldtraquair, our little corner is home to such lovely neighbours as @the_ox_edinburgh (roast Sunday lunch and Guinness) @moletamunro (furniture and lighting to die for) @casaangelina42 (vegan cakes and lots more) amongst others👌🏻

When the timing of your new 💇🏻‍♀️ fits almost exactly with the #myshoplife2018 day theme ‘introducing The Proprietor’🤣🤣 That’s me! I’m Susan and my day to day is everything from product sourcing, curation, visual merchandising, strategy, social media, barista, floor mopping and all the rest that falls in between. The self employed life is challenging and rewarding and I love it. Up until 2 weeks ago I was running Life Story (estd 2014) alongside its big sister business Hula Juice Bar 🌺🌴my first business (estd 2007) and which I’ve sold on to new owners in order to focus on Life Story 🎉 As I brought about this big change so recently (not my hair, the selling of the business, but tbf the subsequent haircut was pretty dramatic too 😂), it’s def going to take me a while to adjust to the ‘new normal’ 🙃and you know what I’m more than ok with that, relishing the moment!! #2018imreadyforyou #myshoplife2018 @pencilmeinshop 👋🏻 #lifestoryedin #selfemployedlife #myshoplife #lifestylestore #scandistyle #alwaysevolving #entrepreneurs #retailtherapy #theshopkeepers

I’m quite taken by these new hooks that I finally unboxed today. Pretty delighted I ordered them because I think you’ll love them. The large one is Agate Moss set in brass and the smaller one White Marble in brass. I can see a row of these holding up bags, accessories or jewellery, or of course as coat hooks, drawer or cupboard door hooks. More to come too. Cardboard box backdrop, models own 😏📦 And look, the evening sun streaming in ☀️#semipreciousstones #brassaccents #homewares #stylingideas #danishdesign #scandinavianstyle

Have you seen this vase in my stories today? Each season we have a vase that becomes the go-to vase and they always share these characteristics: simple, beautiful (with or without flowers) and suitable for many occasions. I think this is the one for 2018. It’s so beautiful, made of glass but with a rough external texture that looks ‘mossy’ is tactile and feels organic in nature. Satisfying the glass and natural vibes all in one beautiful form. Greenish grey with a gold centre 💕 Comes boxed.
