Ever wondered what to wear on safari? Well. Wonder no more. My guide to functional bush style (with a dash of Beryl Markham) à propos of our adventure with @africanhorsesafaris is alive and on @thegaitpost now ~ read it via the link in my bio. It’s still quite strange to think we actually roamed at dawn with these lions of @antelopepark’s Lion conservation programme, and even patted them, something they were delighted have happen. This lady kept rubbing her long fuzzy self along my legs. We weren’t allowed to touch their faces so I felt extra privileged when she rubbed her ears on me. They were as ridiculously soft as you’d expect. I’m breaking my primary rule of keeping posting close to reality A LOT these last few posts. But hey, you can’t make rules for yourself if you’re not going to break them. Killer shot by @samuel.doyle who has just declared “I got 99 problems but snipin’ bangers ain’t one”.

Happy birthday to my father @calderart, on the left of this photo taken in the 1950s. A war child in a city of shipbuilding and locomotives rolling down streets to be shipped to India, who tasted his first apple at 7 - a gift from the children of Canada to the children of Scotland. How impossible to imagine this present that we’re in it would have been, for those three boys standing in the twilight of an empire in nineteen fifty-something.

A proper little quiet seaside village with countless perfect swimming coves ⛵️ Now aboard the flight home and there literally couldn’t be more screaming children. If @ryanair brought in a premium for seats away from children I would pay that.

Throughout August I did the @_stiall_ Challenge where you had to choose 30 items from your wardrobe and wear only those for the month, in an effort to raise awareness about fast fashion, and about how disposable clothes have become. @_stiall_ have now launched an online store selling ethically sourced clothes - but the good kind, not the weird rainbow hemp kind that you (I) think of when I think ethical fashion. They’ve also just posted an interview with me on their blog talking about my favourite outfit from the challenge (this one), and the challenges of doing the challenge. If you want to read it, the link is in my bio 😄 Thank you Linda for inviting me to take part⚡️and props to @samuel.doyle for sniping another banger, grabbed at sunrise as we left home for work one morning in August.

The reason I'm in London: to help everyone fall in love with this beautiful new collection by @arranstreeteast, debuting at @ldndesignfair. It's called CITYSCAPE | DUBLIN - read its story on the @arranstreeteast profile.
