Win with Bloom & Wild and Sweetpea & Willow!

 

Have you heard the great news? We’ve partnered up with the blooming marvellous flower delivery experts at Bloom & Wild for a fabulous competition! The lucky winners of which will be able to get their hands on  3 months of Bloom & Wild flowers, and a £250 voucher to spend on our website. How amazing is that? Enter Here.

To coincide with our giveaway, we thought it would be the perfect opportunity to get to know Bloom & Wild a little bit better. So we have convinced Brand and Creative Director Sara Gordon, whom we had the pleasure of meeting at the Amara Interior Blog Awards last year, to sit in our hot seat for a quickfire Q&A. Sara gave some fabulous answers, so without further ado, here’s what she had to say!

QUICKFIRE Q&A WITH SARA GORDON

The first thing I do when I wake up is…
Jump in the shower, it wakes me up instantly!

On my bedside table you would find…
My phone, a Google Home, a Kindle and an Anglepoise lamp. This has made me realise there’s far too much technology near my zen space!

An invaluable piece of information that I’ve received and passed on is…
If you can measure success, you can’t manage success.

The two most important things I can’t leave home without are…
My phone and wireless headphones.

Right now, I’m listening to…
My SS17 playlist I’ve made on Spotify, which has lots of Chrome Sparks, Mase and Weval. Any spare time I have outside of work I hunt for new music and make playlists, it zones me out and clears my head.

In one short sentence, I would describe my home as…
Cosy with a few investment design pieces. I always saved up for cool rugs and lamps, not fancy handbags!

The best bargain I’ve ever purchased is…
A little mirror for £5 from an antique store in Oslo. Between the mirror and the back base it’s hollow to hold match boxes, so every time I travel I pick up new matches. It reminds me of travels and created a new ritual for me.

My top 3 dinner guests would be…
Saul Steinberg, the most amazing illustrator. Rory Sutherland, a brilliant ad man. Esther Perel, the incredible Belgian psychotherapist specialising in modern relationships.

The thing I love most about my job is…
I love the people that I work with, the constant challenge of a company growing so quickly at scale and well… flowers! You couldn’t work with a more beautiful thing.

My dream destination to visit would be…
Going to Madagascar. Though I’m not an animal person I’m pretty obsessed with lemurs. A few years ago on my birthday my partner took me to see one at a lemur sanctuary outside of Cambridge (we both had the same birthday!) and I’ve fallen in love with them ever since, they are incredibly funny characters to watch and interact with.

The one thing I can’t live without is…
New challenges – I’m the most restless person I know and love a good problem to solve. It keeps me excited and motivated every day.

On my to-do list today is…
Listening to PR pitches from international agencies, planning an upcoming autumn collab and looking at art direction for an upcoming photoshoot.

My favourite way to wind-down is…
Going on a long walk with my partner and talking about our days. He’s my best friend and the most calm, positive person I know.

Tonight I will probably be dreaming about…
Having a lie-in on Saturday!

My dream piece from Sweetpea & Willow would be…
The Lansdowne sofa is just the perfect shade of blue and super plush… we’re moving house soon and I think I need this in my life!

Finish this sentence. Sweetpea & Willow are…
the perfect, curated pieces you’d want in a modern, chic home. It’s fabulous for everything you’d need.

We would like to say a huge thank you to everyone at Bloom & Wild for featuring us in their latest competition, and to Sara Gordon for answering our questions so beautifully.

For all your flower delivery needs, visit Bloom & Wild
