An enormous thank you to Daisy Garnett and Francesca Martin of A-LittleBird for a posting and inclusion in the newsletter today and thank you also to Anna-Marie for the introduction. Daisy and Francesca are two arts and style journalists who met whilst working together at Vogue magazine. They set up A-LittleBird in late 2010 to recommend things that they love and feel passionately about – they (or a contributor) happily spend their own time and money trying everything on the site personally.

Daisy Garnett writes for Vogue, The New York Times and The Saturday Telegraph magazine. She is also the author of Cooking Lessons: Tales from the Kitchen and Other Stories. Francesca Martin is a former Features Director of Harper’s Bazaar and editor of the Guardian Arts Diary.
