The July Edition
1.From the first heady moments of infatuation to celebrations of love fulfilled, there are six tender-hearted cards in Intrinsic's Cherish range to help you express the language of love.
These two little Lovebird bowls are something to chirp about. Small hearts fill the birds’ feathers and PrinceDesignUK, on Etsy, created these dishes by hand. She describes them as being great homes for tea light candles, precious rings, or guest soaps.
Nearly 10 years since it was first published, Girlosophy: The Soul Survival Kit, continues to inspire us here at Intrinsic as well as thousands of girls around the world. The plethora of beautiful photographs of real girls accompanies Anthea Paul’s messages of self-love and soul-searching. A must to add to the bookshelf!
A hot cup of tea, a cosy blanket, and a copy of Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet. Mmmm. It’s considered one of the best love stories, and reading the tales of the Capulet’s and the Montague’s in the ever-action-filled Verona, it’s no wonder why. An oldie, but a goldie!
Italy’s Cinque Terre is a place of beauty. Comprising of five villages and named a UNESCO World Heritage Site, the Cinque Terre is on the Italian Riviera. Walking trails link all of the villages, the ‘easiest’ being Via dell’Amore (Lover’s Lane) which connects Manarola to Riomaggiore, and which has been beautifully captured by Shanti Akkineni.
Peter Alexander’s Floral Heart Waffle Leggings are perfect for those days when you want to lounge around at home, but still want to look funky for any surprising visitors! Covered with a pink and red flower and love heart pattern, these leggings are just a bit too cute.
We are tickled pink by the work of Agatha Ruiz de la Prada. With products so bright and colourful, it is impossible not to be as excited as Charlie in Willie Wonka’s Chocolate Factory when browsing through the collections. This stripy sofa and love heart cushion is definitely on our ‘Luurve List’.
The work that Oxfam does gets our big, Intrinsic tick of approval. Jump on to the Oxfam online shop and you’ll be thrilled by the range of beautiful goodies you can find, including this Recycled heart shaped box, made from recycled posters in Vietnam. So go on, have a browse, and spread the love.
You make the days of my life happy (Adèle Basheer). Short and sweet, Adèle speaks from the heart in our Life greeting card collection. Sometimes, few words are best.
