Feeling Royal

Shop Helpsy's home page currently features one of our favourite photographers Hannah Kristina modelling our New Surrender Blouse and Barbara Skirt showing us how to rule the winter. We love the combination of these pieces with a winter crown hat, the ultimate way to brighten up survival-in-the-snow wear.

Kristin Gallegos in Family Affairs

Back at the end of December one of our stockists Shop Helpsy who we love interviewed make up artist Kristin Gallegos (who also shot one of our Holiday Treats.) Read Helpsy's interview with Kristin where she discusses her upbringing, how she came to be a make up artist and her style. She wore head to toe Family Affairs for the shoot and she wore it well! Check out the interview here.

She looks particularly stunning in the Elton dress:

Indoors and Layered Up for Juno

With the peak of the Juno Winter Storm approaching, we think it's best to stay indoors wrapped up in our No. 9 Dream Quilt and adorable pillows with a cup of tea to hand. So we've decided to do just that and create a pillow fort.

As a treat we are offering Free Shipping today and tomorrow with the code "junopillowfort" There's never been a more opportune time to do online shopping in bed.

Yoko Always

My Yoko shirt puts me in a good mood, it's so soft and upbeat. In the winter I wear it underneath a cashmere sweater.

Thank you to each one of you for being part of the family! You are the stars of the show and you make it so much fun! 2014 has been an intense and great year, where I feel like I learned on the job a lot, worked a lot as always but also took real breaks and took naps and took time. I've loved this year and I am looking forward to next year's adventures! 2014
