Pink and gold chair St Tropez from Calligaris.

Pink is my all time favourite colour and even better when combined with gold.

Such was my passion for those colours, that I created a pink and gold board on Pinterest 4 years ago. When Calligaris asked me to get involve in their #FrameMySaintTropez campaign that celebrated their latest range of Saint Tropez chairs, I accepted instantly when I saw the pink and gold chair. For those of you who are new to the brand Calligaris, it’s a renowned Italian furniture store since 1923, who started off producing small batch artisanal chairs. Fast forward to the present, Calligaris is now part owned by the luxury giant LVMH ( Louis Vuitton Moët Hennessy ).

It’s now one of the market leaders in the furniture industry, distributing to over 90 countries worldwide. I’m already a proud owner of 2 Calligaris chairs and I’m so pleased to add this to my collection. As you can see, I’ve placed my new prized pink and gold chair in my very pastel workspace. Don’t you think my Saint Tropez chair looks right at home in this space?

You’ll notice that the chair is a cohesive element that binds all the pink together. If you love my pink and gold chair then you may be in for a chance to win one, as I will be doing an Instagram giveaway on Monday 27th November. Tune in to my Instagram then to participate. Fingers crossed.

It’s Friday today, so wishing you all a wonderful weekend. Hope you will all be doing something lovely. I will be back soon with some festive Christmas posts. Looking forward to sharing them.

eclipse charger My marble and gold ECLIPSE charger from Native Union.

Did you know that the average person owns 6 devices but only charge 2 to 3 devices on a daily basis?

Are you tired of that chaotic cable scenario, with cords getting tangled and looking untidy in your beautiful interior space?

I’m so pleased to have discovered the ECLIPSE charger from Native Union. It is a beautifully designed USB charging hub with a round and compact design, that can charge up to 3 devices in one go. The USB cables can be wound into their own precision engineered channel, making for easy cable storage and retrieval, without having to untangle knots before using. The ECLIPSE can be placed on your desk, bedside table, or even wall mounted.

You can even use your own cables that are up to 8 feet, with the device. The ECLIPSE itself has a braided power cable so extending your charging cables by an additional 4 feet. This means I can move around the room a little more with my phone whilst it is charging.

The braided power cable comes with a leather strap that keeps it neat if no extension of cord is required. There are so many advantages to the ECLIPSE charging hub.

One of my favourite feature is its smart IC technology that ensures my devices charge at their maximum speed, so no more hanging around and waiting for ages. eclipse charger Another really cool feature that you can’t necessarily see in my photo is that the ECLIPSE charger rises to a tap and emits a soft halo below. Check out my video on Instagram to see it in action. There are many colour options available. I love mine in marble and gold, but you can also get ones with walnut or cherry wood. See how beautiful the marble looks.

Hope you’ve enjoyed this introduction to the ECLIPSE charger from Native Union. I always love smart technology that combines functionality with aesthetics. It really is a cool addition to my workspace.

4 Workspace styles and pens to match your personality.

Do you think that the pen you use, or the workspace you sit at, gives an insight into your personality?

When I received a collection of LAMY pens, I thought it would be a fun project to style up a few matching workspaces.

Introducing you first to the LAMYLx Gold Rollerball. The owner of this rollerball is a creative, who loves art and old books. She loves all things quirky and cool, hence, you will probably find her browsing vintage stores for unique pieces, to create her own eclectic style. LAMY pens As a lover of nature, her workspace will probably feature the raw textures of wood, paper and glass. Here’s how her space looks. She is definitely a thinker and dreamer. Here are the LAMY scala Ti fountain pen in an elegant titanium finish, and the black LAMY pico pocket pen. The owner of these pens love precision and order.

His/her workspace has a distinctly Scandinavian, monochrome look There is always an elegant notebook to match the pen.
The black pico pocket pen can be retracted, hence carried around as a smart compact barrel. The table colour palette is black and white with hints of sandy stone, to match the pens. Thoughts are clear here, in a neat and clutter free space. This is my LAMY Al-star in ocean blue. It is light in weight, hence perfect for my ‘on the go’ lifestyle as a doctor, mother and blogger. I can never resist pink. can you?

Introducing you to the LAMY safari in pink, which fits in perfectly with my pastel coloured workspace.  The space is bright and fun with pinks and minty greens. The owner of this space (me) loves all things girly. Here it is again. The LAMY safari pens are a favourite in our household. They were the pens that my children used, when they made the transition from pencil to pen.

Which LAMY pen personality are you? I would love to know.

Hope you have enjoyed the post. I will be back for more. Don’t forget to follow my instagram story this weekend in Paris. See you there.
