Well we seem to have survived the first full week of the summer hols - just! Thank you for taking the time to stop by Elsa May - I hope you're enjoying your weekend and all is well in your neck of the woods. We're heading off to the coast in a bit, so I shall jump right into what:nots.
Black and white images by Mikael Schulz.
Ajne's exotic scents and intricate packaging.
Personalised return address stamps at Paperwink. And very reasonably priced too!
I've had my eye on these for sometime now.
Listening to the lovely Laura Marling's new album.
Pomander, although technically a 'winter' candle I love it all year 'round.
Assouline's new book Polo, The Nomadic Tribe. Filled with history and possibly the most beautiful images ever by the uber-talented Aline Coquelle. Hope over here and have a look at Aline's images - !
Annie Leonard's book The Story of Stuff looks at our obsession with stuff and the difference between consumption and consumerism. A thought-provoking read.
