Love love Liberty – now stocking my art prints

September 13th, 2017
Liberty has to be one of my all time favourite shops in London. It's everything you want a London department store to be, and I am not just talking about the architecture. Even before you step foot in Liberty, the  flower department at the main entrance is the just first of many temptations, with its [...]

The Slumps

April 28th, 2017

Most days I am on it. I wake up early, (I am in no way a night owl) I go to yoga or gym, I always exercise. I truly believe this routine helps me and my creativity. If I don’t I start the day like this I kinda feel foggy and less motivated. But once […]

Lunar Exhibition

Luanr, Caroline Tomlinson

A favourite work spot of mine in Cape Town is Ground Art Café, on Strand Street, just at the beginnings of my old neighbourhood De Waterkant. It’s got a great team, some seriously great green tea (I don’t drink coffee but I know from other coffee drinkers theirs is very, very good) great music and […]

I went to LA and ended up at The Oscars

April 28th, 2017

So at the start of 2016 I was given another brief from The Wild Sam team. This time it was to illustrate the LA guide. This city has been on my travel hit list for the past year or so. Last time I visited was almost 8 years ago and I knew a lot had […]

Beginnings and why bothers…

April 28th, 2017

Truth be told I have always been wary of starting a blog – it’s a word thats been thrown around, and so many claim to be ‘bloggers’ or now even ‘vloggers’ that I am under no illusion – to be a blogger is a full time job, and like anything that you want to do […]

Chasing Summer

April 25th, 2017
CAROLINE TOMLINSON, BLUE_PALMS, CAPE_TOWN

Somehow I ended up living in eternal Summer (more or less – if London Summer weather behaves). I have spent nearly five years calling Cape Town home, after following my heart, both in terms of romance and falling for the Mother City. And for the last two years I have FULLY taken advantage of my […]

Easter in the Orient

April 19th, 2017
Caroline Tomlinson Hong Kong sketchbook

Easter this year was spent in Hong Kong – the concrete jungle that makes even NYC seem a little vertically challenged. I loved it. I loved its energy, its order, and its love for only the very best. Prada, YSL or (insert any other Designer’s name here you can think of). It has some of […]

London Staycation – a review for Mr & Mrs Smith

October 11th, 2016
MINI - CAROLINE TOMLINSON, LONDON HOTEL REVIEW

On arrival in a new city, I love to be driven through it, watching people go by and soaking up the atmosphere. It’s a voyeuristic ritual that both calms and inspires as I watch the city unfold in front of me. On this occasion, there was the added anticipation of a weekend break; I could […]
