Rather than bemoaning the end of summer, we are (whisper it) loving Autumn. It means the return of our signature merino wool hats this week on the site - perfect for those crisp morning dog walks (we've all got pups now at Lala & Bea HQ - maybe dog coats should be our next venture?!).
We're also seeing our cosy, hand-loomed pure new wool house throws flying out the door - as people are snuggling down in the evenings - what are you watching this autumn? We cannot wait to binge watch Ozark second series on Netflix and we're loving Wanderlust and Bodyguard on BBC.
Autumn also = comfort food. Jamie Oliver's new 'Jamie Cooks Italy' book (£26, Michael Joseph) is 140 recipes full of gorgeous authentic pasta, gnocchi and slow-cook stews that are family-friendly and perfect cosy fodder.
We wrote a post last week about changing up our skincare for autumn to repair any summer damage and protect it from the change in seasons. Whilst we love the autumnal shift, our skin definitely doesn't - we're adding a couple of drops of our 'Get up and Glow' facial oil to our night time skincare routine and we're already seeing a difference in softness and glow.
Working from home, we consider these sheepskin slippers from The Small House (£42) to be our equivalent of workwear. They are super snuggly and the hardwearing leather soles mean they really last.
We are going to be at the Brixton Bazaar at The Department Store this October. It's going to be 3-days of retail, events, talks and workshops. More details to come!
