Happy Monday - we hope your weekend was fab & that you're looking forward to this brand new week!
Today in our blogs we love series we've got a fabulously talented designer, blogger & London-based shop owner named Lizzie Evans! Lizzie, also known as 'The Smuggler,' has created SMUG - a fabulous brand represented by her colourful Instagram, her shop & corresponding website filled with gorgeous products & her inspiring blog.
Lizzie, an Islington Local, created SMUG after growing up near the fun & quirky shops in the Camden Passage. Eventually, Lizzie secured her own space in the area & opened a lifestyle & interiors store based on her own tastes, her passion for design & a love for curating beautiful things!
We cant wait to visit SMUG when we're next in London, but until then, Lizzie's blog is a great place to go for some inspiration & ideas. From fun DIY projects like 'How to Make A Terrarium,' to sharing her 'Current Stationery Faves,' we love that Lizzie shares lots of creative ideas & insight on her blog. We also LOVE that Lizzie is a graphic designer that makes gorgeous surface pattern for her shop products! It's inspiring to see so much of her own creativity within her blog & retail brand.
Lizzie also hosts fabulous workshops for those who want to learn fun typography techniques like brush lettering, along with origami, floristry & more - running workshops like these is such a lovely way to inspire others! Ultimately SMUG is an all-around creative space, blog & brand that will be a definite inspiration for anyone who visits!
Below are some snaps of The Smuggler blog, Lizzie's shop, her own work & some lovely & stylish imagery she has shared online. We think Lizzie is a hugely inspirational creative entrepreneur & we are so happy we came across her blog today & we hope you've enjoyed it too!
