Have you met….

Marina:

 
So Ribbon and Roses launched 3 years ago…. All seems a bit of a blur but it’s been great fun and I’ve learnt so much, to a large degree through mistakes and luck.

Everyone thinks it’s pretty amazing, mostly my family that it’s still going, considering I didn’t really scrape together any GCSE’s, A Levels let alone a degree so all a bit of a risk setting something up but so thrilled I went for it. I really just make it up as I go alone as 90% of the time I have no idea what I’m doing!

With a huge challenge of time management and the constant guilt of working rather than running around the garden with Archie will never change I guess, but at least I can work from home and hear him laughing or screaming!


 

My favourite designer still continues to be Ellie Saab, so so pretty….Along with the magical world of Alexander McQueen who I have loved since doing my dissertation on him.



 

When on a night out there is nothing better than a lychee martini, especially out here in Singapore where you can sit outside in the evenings and enjoy the heat. Not everyone loves this 30 + degree climate, but I can’t get enough of it!

 

My biggest luxury is buying magazines… I know something so simple but it’s a huge treat out here as you basically have to re mortgage your house to buy just a few issues. An early night after a yummy supper and in bed with a few editions of UK In Style, Red and Home D├ęcor I would take any day over the latest craze of “50 Shades of Grey”!
 
So in a nut shell, that’s me.... who is next from the Ribbon and Roses team to tell their secrets.....
 

Lots of love

3rd Birthday!


We had a great afternoon celebrating our 3 year anniversary last week with Korla home, Tinkerbell and Starblu.
Thank you for lots of you popping in and we had a great response from all our new jewellery and clothes. Amazing that some of you arrived armed with a Christmas shopping list!!



 

Here are a couple of snaps from the afternoon and you can see more on facebook:




Anyone who missed the sale, hope to see you at W Boutique fair, Singapore on 11th October and please email marina@ribbonandroses.com if you can’t wait till then!
Lots of Love
Ribbon and Roses xx

Dress your walls


So I must be getting a bit bored of these white walls as all I can think about is wallpapers, prints and paintings. Maybe it’s time I left my computer and got out for a bit but before I do that how cool are these lino prints by Millie McCallum….






YES please to the giraffe with headdress and fab “super power penguins”. A winner for any kids bedroom wall.

I have also totally fallen in love with all the work that Jess Arthur does… I just wish she wasn’t so far away and she could come and transform the again rather boring white walls in Archie’s room. 






I would also do anything for beautiful painted birds around where our dining table is… so, so pretty and unique. Might have to sadly wait for the move back to the UK for this one….


Lots of love
