The August Edition
Vibrant and full of fun! The Life collection from Intrinsic is radiating with positive energy, colour and gorgeous designs. The Believe card brings a little ray of sunshine to our storyteller Sarah and is one of our Star Cards, and there's no doubt that you'll also be able to find a favourite in our collection of 24!
Oranges. Mangoes. Bananas. Pineapples. There's nothing quite like a sumptuous smoothie in the morning to kick start your day! A trip to your local fruit and veg shop combined with a bit of imagination can manifest into a delicious drink full of nutrients and goodness. Let us know your favourite fruit combo, we'd love to give it a test!
Whether you're currently soaking up the summer sun or getting cosy by a fireplace, add a touch of sunshine with Marc Jacob's Daisy. You'll be left feeling fresh and free spirited after treating yourself to top notes of strawberry, violet and ruby red grapefruit, a heart of gardenia and jasmine, balanced with a base of musk and white woods. Enjoy daydreaming of all the good things in life with a little touch of Daisy.
The story of Dinosaur Designs begins in the mid-1980s when Australian trio Louise, Stephen and Leane commenced a side project to their studies and held a stall at the Paddington Markets selling hand printed fabrics and painted jewellery. Two years later, the brand was formed and has since been synonymous with unique jewellery, evoking images of Australia's rich and varied landscape. We have a soft spot for this large, layered radiant bangle, the beautiful yellows and oranges are sure to brighten up anyone’s day! Oh, and we completely love DD's care for Mother Nature - 100% carbon neutral!
Keep your Macbook cosy in this laptop sleeve from ambette on Etsy. A lover of fabrics and only the best quality, 29-year-old designer Liz doesn't fail to provide the goods. Your laptop will definitely look like the coolest cat around in this hessian sleeve, and the colours will no doubt brighten up your home or workplace.
Take bath time to a new level with your new companion, Sue Ducku. She's yellow, she floats, and she even squeaks, but this rubber duckie ain't your average duck! Miss Sue Ducku's body is covered in a sudoku design and she comes with a little pencil to give your brain a work out during bath time. Be warned though - underneath all her beauty lies a real tough nut!
If you haven't already come across the work of Mark Rothko, then prepare to be inspired. Colour, line, shape and balance all combine in Rothko's paintings to form something of mystery and intrigue. Washington DC's National Gallery of Art holds a permanent Rothko exhibit where you can stop, breathe and let the colours draw you in, or if you happen to be in Moscow, the GCCC will be showing his work until August 14.
One of Adèle's favourite brands, Gypsy05 is constantly creating unique, fun pieces, and the Fara Silk Belted Dress is one that is here to stay. By itself or over some jeans, this dress is ideal for almost everyone’s wardrobe, and will definitely help in those last minute 'what to wear' crises!
We are just as impressed by this bright and beautiful felt cushion as we are by the story behind the brand. Bholu is all about creating beautiful products while giving artisans from rural and urban communities in India an opportunity for income, independence and keeping their traditional craft alive. Part proceeds from each handmade piece goes to the Bholu Anganwadi Project - helping to provide poor children with love, education and a nutritious meal. So check out Bholu and add some sunshine to your home whilst also brightening up the lives of others.
They're petite and oh-so-pretty! Intrinsic's newest range of gift tags are the perfect accompaniment to a gift, or as a little surprise under the pillow.

The World Cup may be over, but we're still in the mood for soccer celebrations (or football for all of you outside the land of the land down under!). And why not, when Jinta is creating not only top quality soccer balls but also a positive change in the world. Jinta had a philosophy that stands for no child labour as well as doing their best to ensure their workers’ children are given a proper education. We can't think of a better excuse to get outside in the fresh air, have a kick and know that you've done something to create a little more peace in the world.
