“Take 5” with Emma Rose Thatcher

Starting the week with one of my absolute style crushes, today’s “take 5” is with the lovely Emma Rose Thatcher.

Emma has years of experience working in buying and as a fashion stylist, now she runs her own website www.emmarosestyle.com and Instagram @emmarosethatcher where she shares not just her effortless fashion picks but also her beautiful home (if you haven’t watched her house tour, you must) and cool quirky finds. I know after reading this I will be adding Emma’s top 5 to my virtual shopping cart straight away!

5 tips that have got you through lockdown

  1. Spotify- we have music on all day and it’s been great to rediscover some old favourites. I put together a playlist of my feel-good tunes & that’s been on repeat. A lot of Fleetwood Mac too.https://open.spotify.com/playlist/1EAwjaar6QFn14QkxQlCyA
  2. Playing cards- with 3 teenagers in the house they spend a lot of time in their rooms so we’ve had a ritual since day one of lock-down where we play cards after dinner for an hour or so. It’s been such a big part of our daily routine and I look forward to that time.
  3. Going for long walks- we’ve been doing at least 5k a day and it’s been keeping me sane. Sometimes as a family sometimes just me & Ben. I’ve not been great with exercise during lock-down so it’s good to move in some way. I wake up with good intention and put on my Varley workout gear so don’t feel too bad if I’ve managed a walk by the end of the day.
  4. Spending time in the garden- weather permitting. When the sun is out I make sure I get my work done & shut the laptop at 3/4pm to get few hours in the sun.  I’ve loved the afternoons I’ve sat outside on my fold out mat reading- I really enjoyed where the Crawdads sing. https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B01NBVPLJT/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_image_o09_s01?ie=UTF8&psc=1
  5. Grape & Fig Cheese Box of Joy- I was sent a box by the lovely @grapeandfig girls and it was the dream- I’ve now been having fun trying to recreate their grazing platters with the help of their IGTV tutorials. Such a nice idea for an at home date night.

5 things you just can’t live without

1 Olaplex– The best treatment for damaged hair.

2 Free People – I’ve been living in their co-ords and floaty dresses.

3 Emu Australia slippers– the comfiest, coolest slippers.

4 My fire pit– one of my favourite parts of lock-down has been sat out by the fire of an evening with a glass of rosé.

5 Lockdown Liquor– a bottle of Picante or Pepino cocktails pre mixed and sent direct to your door. All profits go to the NHS. 

Go and give lovely Emma a follow on Instagram and you must check out her home tour, it is total interior goals!!!!
