Notes from the Weekend & a Few Lovely Links

Notes from the Weekend & a Few Lovely Links 25.09.18

“Outside, the night was settling fast. I liked the peace and the silence of the countryside, with its fading alpenglow and darkling view of the river. … The mottled lights from across the other bank beamed on the water, reminding me of Van Gogh’s ‘Starlight Over the Rhone.’ Very autumnal, very beginning of school year, very Indian summer, and as always at Indian summer twilight, that lingering mix of unfinished summer business and unfinished homework and always the illusion of summer months ahead, which wears itself out no sooner than the sun has set.” ―André Aciman, Call Me by Your Name

Here in Spain, we’re in this very lingering mix of unfinished summer business that author speaks about, just as the winds have picked up and falling leaves are fluttering all around us. There have been more overcast and rainy days than last two autumns since we’ve moved here, and sunny ambles have given way to brisk strolls on the crisper mornings. We’ve been busy ordering new autumnal colours for the coming product line-up at Belgrave and The Shop, and working with new contributors at TIG. It’s a busy, exciting time and everything feels new again.

This week’s links include shocking news about Instagram; the 50 Coolest Neighbourhoods in the World; a complete skincare glossary and much, much more.
