Bridal Accessories

I have started a search for beautiful bridal accessories for my wedding and have so far come across a beautiful mix of hairbands, clips and jewellery - always classic silver and white with a vintage, romantic twist. I love 1920s deco but also am drawn to more floral boho-inspired pieces too.

My favourite plaes to browse are Net-a-Porter, Matches, Shopbop and, for more affordable options, Nowseen.

Wedding Tips: The Tiffany App

We are currently creating my engagement ring with a London-based jeweller (more to follow!), but I've been seeking inspiration from everywhere I can during the design process. 

I recently came across this brilliant app on the Tiffany website. Not only does it allow you to sift through different styles of rings but you can 'try it on' by hovering the photo over your ring finger. This really helps when deciding on size, style and shape. 

A must for all brides-to-be who are choosing their engagement ring.

Focus on: Hélène Millot

Whiter than White Weddings
I recently stumbled across Hélène Millot – an antique prop company that stocks wonderful elegant, chic, vintage tableware and furniture from Paris, Amsterdam and London. It's really up my street, as I love the vintage look.

The hire service allows you to create stylish table settings with an authentic feel.

Wedding dresses: Rubicon

I adore these beautiful shots of NY-based wedding dress brand Rubicon. Named after a narrow river in north east Italy, where it is believed Julius Caesar led his troops beginning his invasion of Rome in 49 BC. For the founder Lee Anne Grove, crossing the Rubicon signifies committing to one's decisions to the point of no return. What a bold and powerful sentiment… 

"Femininity is the starting point for everything I create. The modern woman is so undefined. I love the challenge of translating that spirit into something tangible." - Lee Anne Grove

Healthy Living: Roots and Bulbs

When it comes to living healthily, juice is something that is relatively new to me. 

An easy way to get your 'Five a Day' in one fell swoop, juice is a great on-the-go breakfast and feels extra good after a morning work out. 

Health brand and organic juice company Roots & Bulbs opened earlier this year in Marylebone. The shop sells green juices varying in sweetness, smoothies filled with super-food ingredients for nutritious and tasty liquid snacks - simple, honest and fulfilling healthy foods.

Back To Our Roots

Sarah Cadji (the founder of London’s newest, healthy takeaway, Roots & Bulbs) is on a mission to revolutionise how and what we eat on a daily basis. Here’s to more greens and goodness in London.

What does healthy mean to Roots & Bulbs? 
Healthy for us means using the best organic ingredients that make tasty and fulfilling juices, smoothies and food, so that our customers can enjoy them on the go. It also means buying food that is uncomplicated, accessible and feels cool!

What motivated you to start Roots & Bulbs? 
The reason I feel so passionate about it is because I have seen my life completely change by the food choices I have made. This gave me a deep inspiration to create a ripple effect for others that work hard and have very little time to cook, juice or make smoothies. The fact that there was nothing in London that I could call “home food" pushed me over the edge and I started working on this project two years ago.

What sets Roots & Bulbs apart from what’s out there? 
We offer our customers the combination of two things that we feel are different to anywhere else. The fact that we make incredibly healthy organic juices, smoothies and food combined with the convenience of getting it on the go, is what we think customers will appreciate.

Tell me about Roots & Bulbs food? 
For our food we have ensured that every meal we offer is complete, in that it contains protein, fibre, complex carbohydrates, antioxidants and essential fats. By delivering this whole package we believe that our food offers the very best of food groups and nutrients. They have been thoughtfully designed to deliver energy, flavour, satisfaction, nutrients and, most importantly, pleasure. We have a whole team that designs the recipes with our nutritionist Ian Marber, chefs that cook the meals and drivers that deliver it fresh from our kitchen to our shop.
