SAMARAH  ❤️Designer.Maker| Handmade Accessories| Made in Barbados. ☎️ ☝🏽Stories for behind the scenes production & island life

Mid way in to planning for the up coming season in Barbados (as we are already almost halfway through July) and I am having all the monochromatic feels!
#blackandwhite #grey #monochrome #planning

Originally started in Perth, Australia as a local government initiative, Plastic Free July has grown in to a global movement.
While I consider myself ‘good’ when it comes to substituting single use plastics with a more sustainable alternative in my personal life I wanted to use this month to attack the use of plastics in my business. Let’s face it, tubes of paint come in plastic, I use zip lock bags to protect my fabrics (although they are reused countless times then discarded appropriately), my paint brush handles are sometimes made mid plastic...and even pre made tassels come wrapped singly ( hence me using porcelain beads, handmade pom-poms and shells as ‘tassels’) As my business grows it’s bittersweet as I worry about the impact my products have on the environment. Taking part in plastic free July will help me take stock of my plastic use and how to eliminate it as my business grows even if that means doing away with certain suppliers.
I will be showing life behind the scenes via insta stories over the next month as my business (and personal life) get a good plastic clean up!
Happy July!!!

Meet Saba doodle!
The new ‘studio assistant’ who will be making a regular appearance on this page from now on 🐶
That’s right I am unapologetically taking advantage of the perks that running my own business affords.... this pooch will be coming to work with me most days, keeping me company in the studio and radiating good energy while I do all the things!
We love her to bits and I hope she puts a little smile on all of your faces like she has ours!

Join us tomorrow at Nikki beach for ‘What Women Want’. We kick off from noon and end after the resident saxophonist plays his last tune 🎷
Call your tribe and let’s vibe!

Jumpsuits are my jam. I love the ease of not having to fuss with separates, just throw it on and you are ready to go and it’s safe to say that a onesie is my uniform.
I made the first sample for myself about a year ago and wore it and tweaked it and wore it and tweaked it.
This gem has no zips (no more ‘I need to go to the loo can you unzip me!’ moments) a tie belt (options baby!) and pockets for that effortless slouchy look....wear it over a swimsuit, curl up on a red eye flight or dress it up with a denim jacket, blazer or kimono.
Done ✅. FYI we recommend the Lyn Jacket by @trubarbados (which is now on sale!)

Subtly add some colour by customizing your necklaces with an accent string! The turquoise with the charcoal is a winner!

Decided to bring these tie dye fold over clutches back for summer after a request from a client.
Raw canvas individually dyed so no two are the same, lined with water resistant lining, with a slight update in the form of a clay bead tassel!

Oh HEY 33!
Spent the day in the studio doing my thing and to shake it up and bit ( and boy did we shake It up) we all rallied and join the @fitnessbunnies246 awesome Wednesday work out session followed by a picnic on the beach organized by the best twerk team around!
Honestly I am grateful AF and I’m looking forward to more birthdays because they are awesome!
