Resolutions, Moustaches and Islands

Hello it's Margaux! I'm sorry it has been so long since our last post! I hope everyone had a lovely Christmas and New Year! I think it's safe to say this was my favourite Christmas so far, we had such a lovely time, I'm very grateful to be surrounded by such wonderful people. As far as my New Year's resolution is concerned, I have been exercising and have cut out quite a bit of (definitely not all!) chocolate and sweets out of my diet! We'd love to hear what your resolutions are! And most importantly did you manage to keep them? 

This lovely coat will be up on our etsy shop within the next couple of days!
And here is one of my christmas presents from monsieur Alec! It is THE perfect 1950s brown floral dress, I absolutely adore it!

Alec spruced up his moustache for the new year, snip snip. He has had it for about a year now!
And, he found the hunting cap that he mentioned in our interview with Yours Truly x, finally after about three months...

Here are a few photos from our trip to France over Christmas, We visited a lovely island called Brehat, we were lucky as this was the sunniest day in a while. Sunny winter days are by far my favourite! 
We went to the only open creperie on the island and all the indoor tables were full, feeling very warm from our walk, we decided to sit outside. Very silly idea... after about 40 mins of waiting we started to turn blue from the cold and eventually ate a well-deserved crepe then ran to the nearest cafe for a comforting hot chocolate! 

 On the way back, we stumbled upon this little market stool and noticed this blackboard:

"Help yourself and leave the money in the postbox please, Thank you :)" 

I absolutely loved this! You couldn't possibly do anything like this in most places these days, it's great to know that there is still a little bit of trust in this world! We put two Euros in the box and walked off with delicious cherry tomatoes! 

 Now we're back in Brighton and we're planning a very big blog post for you with lots of exciting news and other surprises to make up for our long absence! We will also be posting new items on the shop, make sure to follow us on twitter @S_Suitcase for regular updates :)

We hope you're having a wonderful weekend!

  1. Great photos, beautiful clothes, beautiful life, gorgeous blog! Looking forward to following and checking out your Etsy shop! (new follower Nadya)

  2. Oh my god ! Ces petites tomates cerises sont délicieuses ! J'ai été sur Bréhat il y a quelques mois, le temps était aussi magnifique et le vent s'est déchainé quand nous rentrions à terre ! Ce concept de petit marché de confiance m'a aussi beaucoup plu ! Et leurs confitures sont aussi très bonnes ! :)
    See you soon !

  3. It's good to see you back, I always look forward to your splendid outfits and photos. I'm envious of your French adventure, all the photographs radiate warmth with the expanses of blue sky and sea!

  4. What a beautiful place! And that market stall made me smile :D

    The dress is gorgeous, I love it!

  5. Just discovered your blog, you two make me want to move to Brighton, what beautiful style you both have!

  6. oh girl, you look gorgeous!!! Wish I lived in Europe, so that I could travel easily to different countries.

    But that coat... I'm speechless.
