In the spotlight… an afternoon with Rachael Clifton.

Over the past year we’ve had the pleasure of getting to know Rachael Clifton aka @bubblyaquarius – northern girl, vintage fan and a regular visitor to our studio (although sometimes we’re not sure whether it’s to see us or Colin). We caught up with Rachael to chat Instagram, jewellery and what more we can expect from her this year.

I can’t start the day without…
Coffee!

 

Three words your best friend would use to describe you?
Tall, clumsy and well-dressed.

 

Where is home?
Durham / the North East!

 

Okay, let’s talk Instagram. How did you first get into it?
It started out as a hobby and I would always share what I was wearing as I’ve always been into fashion and styling, and it just kind of grew from there!

 

What is the best (and hardest) thing about being your own boss?
Managing your own time and making all of the decisions is both the best and the hardest!

 

Can you share with us your number 1 tip for styling jewellery?
I absolutely love jeans and a white tee with loads of golden jewels and really think jewellery can make the simplest outfit look SO good.

 

What piece of jewellery couldn’t you live without?
My rings, I’m obsessed!
So, we know you now live in London. When did you move here, and do you have a secret London haunt?
I moved to London about 6 years ago now and have always lived in East. There’s a little coffee shop near me called Violet and I just love it there. Amazing coffee and cake, and just super cute 🙂

 

If you could be anywhere right now, where would you choose?
Probably lying on a beach in the sunshine!

 

Name one essential travel item to take with you?
A good book.

 

What’s your best guilty pleasure?
Eating Nutella out of the jar!

 

What are you currently listening to / reading?
Dolly Alderton’s podcast ‘Love Stories’ is my absolute fave. I’m also always listening to Fleetwood Mac.

 

How do you switch off?
I rarely do, haha, but exercise or a nice bath usually help.

 

What’s next for you?
More travel, more varied content and more video hopefully!

 

We’d love to know – what’s the best piece of advice you’ve been given?
Everything happens for a reason!
