Brown Thomas: Create

When I was a child and browsing the vast array of stunning goods in the store I could scarcely have imagined that one day my own range, inspired by my childhood stories in Dublin, would be displayed under this very roof…

A Winter Sunset

Hi, my name’s Sara and I’m a sunset spammer. Seriously. Show me a sunset and I’ll show you at least five new Instagram posts. Really though, can you blame me? We were heading to the beach last night, hopped out of the van and straight into a fairground in the sky. It was insane. And…
