Kids, your Uncle Beefy has entrepreneurial aspirations. Even after years in the service industry, and some hair-raising tales to go along, I still dream of a little something to call my own one day. Call me crazy. (Seriously, it’s fine. Others do it all the time… only they also roll their eyes usually.)

I’m always looking for sources of inspiration and trying to visualize what I might like to conjure up. And that typically has me drooling over one British retailer or another! I don’t quite know what it is but I just find the British sensibility for merchandising extremely appealing (I know, insert gross generalization here). So many of the shops I come across have that homey but sophisticated feel. Thoughtfully curated without feeling contrived. Anyway, it certainly boosts my Anglophile nature and makes me long for a British accent. (But we all saw how that worked out for Madonna… so I’m steering clear of that move!)

This, Kids, is one of my favorite inspirations and a shop I’m dying to visit! Labour & Wait. Isn’t this just about perfect? It makes me want to plant roses and bake shortbread and drink tea and wear wellies while walking the corgi! I mean who wouldn’t relish going positively domestic with all these offerings for inspiration?! Seriously. But for the moment I’m afraid I’ll just have to [Labour &] Wait.

    I abolutely hear you, being an Anglophile myself. Gimme a pair of wellies, some tweed, a nice crumbling cold castle and plenty of hot toddies and I'm in heaven!!

    btw, after living in england for a while, I "accepted" the british accent, and it does wonders here in US! trust me, you must try it. it's all somehow nicer, better, more eccentric (instead of crazy, right?), posh, etc. I love it. but I do agree, it must sound naturall, that madonna one is hilarious 🙂
