Right now, I’m sat on a coach on my way to the airport. By tomorrow afternoon I’ll be sipping cocktails at a rooftop bar in Bangkok, ready to see in the new year with one of my best friends. I can’t even explain how excited I am!
Whilst I’m away I will be taking a little break from the blog. I considered getting some posts scheduled, as this does seem to be the norm these days, but honestly I just don’t like the idea of it. Having posts go up, like I’m still sitting there writing them up at my desk, just seems a little too contrived for my liking. Plus, I’m sure you guys aren’t really that bothered if there are no posts for a few weeks either!
I will of course be sharing things here and there over on Instagram and Twitter, so check those out if you want to see what I’m up to. I’ll be back on the 24th January, and there will be plenty of posts all about it (plus a belated best of 2016 outfit roundup!) as soon as I am.
Until then, have a wonderful new year!
This is just a quick post to say Merry Christmas and a happy New Year to you all, I hope you all get everything you wished for and have a magical day, hopefully 2016 will have plenty of new and exciting things in store for us all!
We’ll be taking a little festive break to recharge and will be back in the New Year with all the usual, so we’ll see you then!

The first jersey pieces finally hit the store this morning! This has been a long time coming, you’ll probably remember me saying that these were supposed to be in the store before the end of last year & honestly, if I believed in those kind of things I’d say someone up there is testing me after all the bad luck we’ve had recently. But I don’t, life happens & things don’t always run smoothly & sometimes you just have to give yourself a break.
My aim with these, as with the pieces beforehand, was to create a little capsule collection of the kind of basic, seasonless pieces I wished I could find in stores myself. They’re not super basic, but they’re basic for me in terms of them all being pieces I’d get an awful lot of wear out of & that are hard-working, being able to be paired with almost anything & dressed up or down. You probably know I’m picky about fabrics too, so I hunted down a nice soft, hard wearing & easy to care for viscose jersey with a little elastane for added stretch for all of the pieces.
I’ll be adding more, including some tees once I get the hang of screen printing (sorry, I’m a perfectionist & this may take a while!) over the next months. I’d like to build up a small collection of basics that will be permanently available in the store, and then release larger seasonal collections each year, the first one being this year. I’ll of course keep you guys updated when new items are released, but follow me on Twitter & Instagram if you want little sneak peaks into what’s coming & giveaways, there might even be one on Instagram later today!

We’re taking a short break over the next week for the holidays & will be back in the New Year with lots of fresh content. I hope you all have a wonderful Christmas & New Year, and that you get everything you wished for!
I also just wanted to use this as an opportunity to say thankyou to all of you who continue to read, comment, send me lovely emails & chat with me on social media, it still amazes me what this blog has grown into & it would not be possible without you guys. I know some of you have been here right since the beginning & that fills me with warm fuzziness. I appreciate you all & your support more than you know.
If you guys have any suggestions of things you like to see more of around here, things you don’t like & would like to see less of, or suggestions for new posts, please drop me an email or a quick tweet, I’d love to hear your input! I’m thinking of reinstating the old inspiration & playlist posts, and maybe adding a little more lifestyle too, as these are things that have been mentioned to me quite a bit recently. Let me know what you think!
Happy holidays & see you all in the New Year!
Those that follow me on Instagram & Twitter will have seen that for the past few months I’ve been working on getting a small collection ready. To have my own line is something I’d always dreamed of but never expected to actually happen and it’s something I really have to thank you guys for, because without this blog, it’s readers & the incredible love and support I’ve received from you I would never have had the opportunity or the courage to take such a leap of faith.
I’m equal parts excited & nervous to announce that finally after a few delays the store is now live! The first lot of clothing is online, and within the next month there will also be some jersey pieces added to these too, expect dresses, tops & skirts. Mostly it’s a more refined collection of what originally were personal one off pieces that have featured in my outfit posts that I’ve had a lot of requests for, the cropped leather jacket especially!
Shop the collection & check out the store here – I would love to know your opinions on everything, whether good or especially if bad, if there’s anything you think needs changing or problems you encounter, so please do let me know in the comments, via email or any of my social accounts. As my way of saying thankyou to you guys too, for the first week there will be 20% off everything with the code LAUNCH.
As an extra note, if you follow this blog by bookmarking it or similar the address will be changing to blog.faiiint.com (or faiiint.com/faiiint) as this will now redirect over to the shop, it should not make any difference if you follow using a reader, but do let me know if you find any issues & I’ll get them fixed straight away.
