The time has arrived, I will be teaching for the next week in Marrakesh at the Peacock Pavillions thanks to the lovely Angela at Ace Camps and our hostess with the mostess Maryam from My Marrakesh. I am excited to meet my students and share a week of inspiration, shopping, eating, henna painting, a spa retreat, mani-pedis, story telling, an outdoor movie on the lawn, rooftop dinners and general fun girly stuff with them. I have a small surprise for them – a handmade gift that I created and I can’t wait to share because it meant a lot to me to be able to do something personal for each of my students to make them feel welcome and cared for. I hope that they will like my little gift — and I’ll show you later what I ended up creating but until then it has to be a surprise. :)
So! I will be offline for a few days but next week I’ll be blogging from Marrakesh so you can expect to hear from me throughout the week. I can’t wait to share our journey with you (well, not the personal bits but the souks, foods and my experiences in Morocco).
See you next week!
I already have a lovely radio in my kitchen but after seeing the brand new Evoke Mio radio designed my Orla Kiely my heart started to race. Isn’t this lovely!? I still will stick with mine but this is great.
The digital and FM portable radio features the signature stem print that she is known best for and is finished with a chromed handle and walnut veneered cabinet with cream.The radio has an optional ChargePAK that gives you up to 24 hours to listen to music between charges. “It is packed with features too, including digital and FM radio, an input for your iPod/MP3 player, Intellitext and textSCAN, a striking auto-dimming OLED display, an alarm, a kitchen timer and a USB connector for future product upgrades.”
The EVOKE Mio by Orla Kiely will be available exclusively at John Lewis from early November and at independent retailers from March 2011 — I think you can get it at her Covent Garden store soon too.
