Mint Velvet’s clothing collections are all underpinned with the relaxed glamour ethos, meaning that each garment is beautifully designed to work effortlessly with the modern woman's wardrobe. Think luxury fabrics and finishes, giving each garment an extra special feel.
Their SS16 collection is characterised by a new feminity in soft chalks, neutral hues and romantic florals with a touch of boudoir in lace fabrics and trims: stylish, easy to wear and glamourous. We're wishing we could enter for ourselves!

GO: UNDERGROUND. DITCHLING MUSEUM OF ART
Hometown glory! As lovers of design we are so excited to celebrate 'Underground: 100 Years of Edward Johnston’s lettering for London', and it's right on our doorstep...
'Underground' explores the friendship between letter cutter and relief carver Eric Gill and his teacher Edward Johnston, who worked together to create the iconic typeface still seen across London to this day. With major loans from the V&A, London Transport Museum, Craft Study Centre, Monotype, private collections and Ditchling Museum of Art + Craft’s own permanent collection, this exhibition looks at the birth of the typeface which remains as influential today as it did 100 years ago.
The exhibition opens on the 12th March at the Ditchling Museum of Art + Craft.
DO: TERRARIUM WORKSHOP
Plants (real or fake) are a staple for every home, regardless of interior style. London Terrariums began out of a sincere desire to engage with nature in the urban environment.
After receiving their first commission, they became dedicated in creating beautiful bespoke terrariums and hosting popular workshops throughout London. Their creations look so pretty, and we love that you can make your own to display at home. We'd place ours on a window sill to catch the light as part of a beautiful botanical display!
Find out more information on their workshops here.
VISIT: URBAN FOOD FEST, SHOREDITCH
The Urban Food Fest market has 15 different street food trucks and stalls serving a delicious array of global gourmet street food dishes alongside a premium and specialist cocktail bar. Add in the selection of international wines, prosecco and champagne, plus live musicians and seating areas and you're set for an amazing Saturday night!
Hosted in a Shoreditch car park and founded by City lawyer and investment banking duo Jessica and Mike, this foodie party seems like an unlikely street-food success. However, they have received high acclaim with features in the Time Out, Vogue, Elle, Esquire, Daily Telegraph and more. See you there!
Every Saturday from 5 March 2016, Midday - Midnight @ Euro Car Parks Shoreditch High St London.
Take a look at their Instagram for some serious meal envy.
DRINK: FIRST AID BOX
First Aid Box in Herne Hill, London offers something that other bars don't: 'cure-all' creative drinks. Inspired by health and nutrition these cocktails infuse herbs and other super food ingredients aimed at giving you more than just incredible flavour and a hangover! Just what the doctor ordered. With decor riddled with vintage hospital gear (complete with pipettes, medicine bottles and clinical white tiling) First Aid Box is the perfect stop for a quirky night out.
Feel free to indulge in their equally amazing menu of meat,cheese and charcuterie from local suppliers to accompany your tipple. Delicious!

SHOP: MAGAZINE BRIGHTON
We LOVE magazines, so naturally we love Magazine Brighton. This shop may look understated from the outside, but step in for vibrant bursts of colour, gorgeous typefaces and inspiring imagery in the form of every magazine you could ever need. Selling more than 200 different magazines at any one time, Magazine Brighton will have you flicking through all the publications you can dream of from food, music, fashion, culture, art and design.
Tucked into the North Laine, Magazine Brighton slots perfectly inbetween cafes, vintage stores and other independent shops, serving up all things we love about Brighton. Pop in and pick up a selection of unusual magazines to add to your collection and they be happy to recommend something especially for you! We stopped by last week and picked up Open House and Cabaña which feature beautiful interiors and endless design inspiration. A few of their other titles include the stunning Collective Quarterly, Huck and other flawless lifestyle mags!
22 Trafalgar Street - just 5 minutes from the station and 15 minutes from the beach
TREAT: THE HARDIHOOD
Okay, Lent is up on the 24th (you can do it!), but it hardly matters when your treats are free from everything. The Hardihood provide plant based confectionery free from refined sugar, gluten, wheat and soya. I know, we can't quite believe it either by the looks of them... Stocked in a variety of stores across London, these cakes have featured in Grazia, have a stunning Tumblr and Instagram presence and we want to eat them all now. With Easter fast approaching we figured theses would be an amazing alternative for, well, everyone!
LISTEN: TO BE CONTINUED...
We've been obsessing over Wes Anderson lately (well, all the time) and his distinctive films such as the Grand Budapest Hotel and the Darjeeling Limited. We thought we'd share one of our favourite office playlists with you this month. Influenced by his quirk and wit, here are our top Anderson-inspired tracks to tap our feet to under the desk....
