Denim Jacket

A modern anchor of the male capsule wardrobe? Previously thought to be too working class, too all American, too rugged. The humble denim jacket with its wild west history has cemented classic status. No longer just an unfashionable item of fashion. Dispel thoughts of the Marlboro cowboy, take away John Travolta and the fur collar, banish punks and beat poets. The world is done rebelling against establishment and their Savile Row suits. Denim is the new suit for many and has risen through the ranks from rebel statement to defining a new wave of professionals. Masculine and versatile, keep the lines clean and the denim medium in weight and tone. Traditional outerwear or layered, the denim jacket is classic cool, never...

A Quest Like No Other . . .

  We are the brand you'll want to age with - Derma Quest   Not many other topics make me tread cautiously like beauty. My gift of the gab has gotten me into my share of trouble in life. I was always encouraged to have an opinion and as a result, my voice can tend to reign relatively unchecked. The topic of beauty, however, renders me mindful and slightly scared. As a woman, it’s a sensitive topic, not wanting to base our value on it but craving it all the same. In ancient Egypt, women prized magical power wielding mud from the banks of the Nile river and continuously through the ages we have put our faith in little pots of wonder and promise. Our...

4 Scents To Try Now

“Odours have a power of persuasion stronger than that of words, appearances, emotions, or will. The persuasive power of an odour cannot be fended off, it enters into us like breath into our lungs, it fills us up, imbues us totally. There is no remedy for it.” ― Patrick Süskind, Perfume: The Story of a Murderer     Have you ever had that moment when a scent hits your nose in a sudden burst of intensity, and you now know that your life is changed forever? Scents have marked various phases of my life, I can match every milestone to a smell. My first bottle of 'perfume' came in a small clear plastic bag with pink trim alongside a bubble bath and body...

8 Reasons you’ll want Bourjois in your bag

I sometimes feel I am the sunny, slightly chintzy counterpart to my sister, she’s a fan of winter, posh boots, cashmere, fireplaces & high-end Euro street style. The girl is a veritable Emily Bronte novel to my fluffy beach read.     I crave warmth, a smattering of seasonal dysfunction disorder is definitely lurking in me. I see winter as a personal affront to my ability to exist, Mother Nature testing my limits. Therefore I get extremely excited before spring has even sprung and can’t wait to bring you all more posts about what we are using and loving at They’re Wonted HQ this season.     Look out for frozen wine cocktails, Derma Quest products for any need, kitschy dresses re-purposed with an edge, hydrating...

Spring Skin – Caribbean Style

With spring around the corner, and the inevitable unveiling of limbs creeping nearer. We start to think about sun-kissed glows, exfoliating and shimmery balms promising pearlescent radiance. Us lasses at ‘They’re Wonted’ have taken up the challenge for you and have been trawling the aisles filling our baskets with coconut infused ‘self-tanners’. We asked beauty therapists for their tips on how to emerge more goddess than gaudy. It’s all about embracing subtlety and not giving into UV ray temptations and the lure of Essex, come now ladies, we know better than that now. As I sit writing this piece on Woman’s Day, I can’t help but contemplate the importance of why we make the litany of beauty regime decisions that we do....

When Only Nostalgia Will Do . . .

A party without cake is just a meeting – Julia Childs   Whether you’ll admit it or not, we all have our foodie dirty laundry. Those comforting dishes that flood us with memories and nostalgia. Dishes we wouldn’t be seen ordering in a trendy café or be caught serving to guests in our homes. The dish I crave when I’m sick or craving pudding or just missing my family, is my mum's peach cobbler. Deep into Winter when there were no apricots left on our trees and the dreary fruit isles had nothing but tart, floury apples, my mum would turn to ‘Koo’ for inspiration. Amongst my mother's small arsenal of dishes that she wields for special occasions, are firm family favourites...
