What is it about some parts of this world that feel extra romantic? To do with history, happenings, residents that bestow upon a certain area an air of interest and cool…
I’ve always felt that way about Bloomsbury, with its venerable literary legacy of the ever intriguing bohemian Bloomsbury Set encompassing some of Britain’s most exciting, revered writers, artists & intellectuals. Visiting places like this, that ebb with times gone by never fails to leave me feeling deepened somehow – resonating with and trying to connect & harness the forward-thinking, the experimental, the different. I know technology is so often seen as a real pariah to the way we live; turning us into phone zombies, disconnecting us from IRL, but I still can’t help but feel emboldened, invigorated and enlivened by the possibilities digital affords us.
I do feel we need to remind ourselves to remain firmly in control and be strict with not being zoned in (or out!) too much of the time. But I have to say – for adults at least (and for the kids, the responsibly lies with us grown ups to reach best practice) don’t relinquish your autonomy and free will; ensure that you are the boss of your digital devices & apps and prioritise the physical space to ensure you keep up with your exercise, breathing the fresh air, staring at the sunset, allowing yourself to get bored. I often enforce this on tube and bus journeys to ensure my brain still has the time to wander freely and get bored, absolutely essential to any kind of creativity I reckon!
So in love with the gorgeous little Polly Pouch, designed in collaboration with Mimi Berry for our camera accessories range! Super soft, with a Sam Brown fitting and leather divider inside so you can separate memory cards from you bankcard! Ps Vintage rings by Bear Brooksbank & Anina Vogel.
