I think I have owned a pair of converse since I was about 12. I now buy the All Star Ox Monochrome and I wear them until they can’t be worn anymore, these ones are heading that way. If I can get away with it I will wear trainers wherever possible, I love my Nike Airs too but I always go back to my converse.

Couldn’t be without a camera. I had a much loved, Pentax SLR but decided it was time to venture into the 21st century and bought myself a digital Nikon D60. My new phone, the Samsung Galaxy 5 is giving my camera a run for its money, it takes a very good image.

Running keeps me sane and I love to listen to music while I am out and about so these little shuffles are brilliant, they are light, small and do the job.

Where I go my laptop goes, I have always had apples and I have no desire to change or try anything else. I would literally be lost without it.

I studied Fine Art at University and I love to sketch and paint, unfortunately I don’t find the time at the moment what with running Such& Such and having two little girls under three but I always carry one of these round to jot down ideas or sketch ideas.

Luxe city Guides
Not necessarily an everyday essential but if I ever travel, these are a must. Discovered these little guides when we were living in Asia and they have never let us down. Could not recommend them highly enough.

Tribe sunglasses by Proof Eyewear
We sell these on Such & Such and I think every member of our family now has a pair. Cool designs that are mainly made from wood which makes them light to wear. Such & Such is all about designers & makers with a difference and a story and Proof Eyewear is a company that has both.
Always have one of these in my bag.
This is the one site I go on daily, apart from our own of course. I am ever so slightly addicted to their blog and I would say it was one of my daily essentials, they brought out a book last year which I love too.

I am not really a handbag kind of girl but I have had this leather bag by Clare Vivier for about 7 years now and I use it almost everyday, it gets better and better with age. It fits my laptop, phone, wallet and whatever I am reading in it…I simple love it.
