Love, Laughter, Lows, Lessons, Lumps and This Beautiful Thing Called Life
Hello beautiful people...
Thank you for stopping by my website.
I launched India & Rar at the start of 2021. My dream was to create a space where women could join together in celebrating each other. In a world that lives on scarcity and fear, I wanted to create a place where we could laugh, cry, learn and grow together without judgement. I've loved every moment, and it's been one of the best decisions I've ever made to follow my passion. India & Rar has always been more than timeless jewellery and cosy knits; it is belonging, connection, courage, kindness and community.
Those who have followed my journey will know I was diagnosed with stage four lung cancer in November 2021. To say it's been a wild ride since then is an understatement. Through India & Rar, I have the privilege of connecting with amazing like-minded women, lots of whom have since become cherished friends. I feel countless gratitude for each and every order, and the support this little business receives continues to blow me away. It's also been wonderful to reconnect with customers and friends from when I had Magpie & Fox in Truro. The void left in my heart when this beautiful bricks-and-mortar boutique closed back in 2018 has definitely been filled. I cherish this online space; it gives me so much joy.
Due to the rollercoaster, I'm currently on, I've decided to temporarily close my online shop for a few months. It's not a permanent closure, more of a pause.
I'm following my instinct and focusing on my family and my healing. My intention is to become cancer-free or at least learn to live with it and create a meaningful life following the last year. I remain active with my blog and will work on other projects, which I hope will help others who sadly find themselves in my position. My time and energy are with my family, so I may take a little longer to reply than usual. I still love to hear from people, though, so please email me with any enquiries or possible collaborations.
Sending love, and see you again in a few months.
