Due to a very busy working week I haven't had the opportunity to spend as much time as I would like researching for this post and also checking my #shwishlist emails. Thank you to all the brands who I have already emailed me, it's wonderful to see such a variety of independent brands based around the UK.

This week I have included a few brands I have found at press days and on social media.  One of my favourites is Wondaland. A new British womenswear label by Alice Keswick. Alice has an enviable list of past roles in fashion, including working as a buyer for one of my most beloved vintage boutiques, Atelier-Mayer. It is easy to see that these experiences have influenced the Wondaland brand with an overall vintage focus updated with modern detailing or a contemporary shaping of a classic. I also admire how the prints within the collection are part of a collaboration with an artist or textile designer. My favourite piece within the current collection is the versatile, 'Marais Jacket', a loose tux style jacket with a printed lining and casual aesthetic. For daytime wear with a white shirt, a cigarette trouser and metallic courts. Or to change the look entirely for evening wear with a white strapless bodycon dress and belt the jacket at the waist to create an asymmetric peplum. 

I love the sound of British honey skincare brand Therapi. The brands skincare line is certified organic by the Soil Association and is the creation of honey producer, Tanya Hawkes, who donates 5% of the profits to bee conservation. I discovered the brand last year although I actually cannot remember where I bought my moisturiser from.  Born and bred in the idyllic Cotswold's I am very aware of how vital Bees are to our environment, in particular because we know that over one-third of our food supply relies upon them for pollination.  This Therapi moisturiser helps to rejuvenate your skin with extracts of rose and sandalwood with the nourishing properties of honey, rosehip oil and shear butter.

Due to my stationary addiction naturally no #shwishlist would be complete without a notebook or writing paper. This week I have found the delightful brand Noble Macmillan London. With a longstanding heritage within stationery and leather goods, I am unsure why the luxury label has escaped my notice for so long! However I am now firmly obsessed and have an extensive wishlist. First on the list is this leather covered lined notebook, available in a variety of shades.

Add a little love to the lives of your family or friends with this pretty handmade love ring by Stephen Einhorn. Completely customisable, you can choose the metal and stone. I opted for a pink sapphire set within rose gold.

If you are heading to sunnier climates you must look at the Amoir Camaira collection. With high fashion designs and shapes, this is no ordinary swimwear and undeniably elegant.  My favourite above is the 'Esmaya' featuring an overall rouching, double lining and a stunning open back.  If you want to turn heads this summer this is the look for you.

To allow you a closer view of these covetable pieces, I have pinned everything I have featured to my #shwishlist pinterest board. If you would like to recommend a brand or item, email: moi@sarahhayleyfreelance.com or tweet me with the hashtag #shwishlist.
