PRE-ORDER Hiccups - A lost guide to girlhood
Dispatches from a small business in

'This book is an invitation...to step out of one's own life and wander in the footsteps of another. And yet, friends, the invitation does not stop there...for in the footsteps of Hope we too are invited to go further with her into a land beyond our own. And so who better to take us there, then one who has faced time and time again the painful realities of life. One who has had to, from such a young age, face o against the dark. To be led by such a guide is a beautiful thing.' - Joel McKerrow, friend and mentor.
In Hope's debut poetry novel she explores the themes of chronic illness and isolation, more prevalent in recent years than ever before,
'You know that feeling? When you swallow your tears as they crawl down your throat till you choke on all the what ifs and should haves. The way the salt tastes like the sea, the waves that caressed you of childhood and abandoned playgrounds. When your face is puffy but somehow your eyes still sparkle with a forgotten promise. The one you made to yourself at 16, to never get hurt again. All those feelings bottled into tears that take the years from your face and replace them with something juvenile and glistening. Coming back up your throat till they feel like words that arrange themselves on fresh pages, all the pieces you left untethered.
It feels kind of like hiccups.’

These earrings are absolutely adorable. They were sent out very quickly, and the packaging was amazing. Unboxing it was a whole experience of its own, I definitely recommend buying from this shop!
What a beautiful journal! Everything about it is perfect, the cover, the pages, the tags, the charms and Hope's beautiful artwork among the pages! It is perfect for recording my own art and thoughts! I highly recommend Hope for her beautiful handmade art, which is truely created from the heart, and for her friendly and efficient customer service! I couldn't be happier and will make future purchases x
This is a beautiful print, which I have framed and hung in my lounge.
