We have long been fans of the brilliant Lobster & Swan blog by Jeska Hearne - her eye for design and all things pretty is second to none and she has a pinterest account that is truly swoonworthy. So we couldn't be more delighted that she is this month's Gather&See girl. Read on to hear all about Jeska's inspirations, style tips and why she shops ethical.
What or who inspires you?
Mother Nature and the seasons.

What is the best piece of advice you have ever been given?
Can’t think?! But I love the saying ‘work hard and be nice to people’.
What advice would you give your teenage self?
Care even less what people think and never get too drunk on schnapps!
What makes you angry?
The state of the world and being helpless to fix it all.
What makes you happy?
Sunny mornings, full moons, my husband, our cats, freedom to be creative and making the most of everyday.
Gracias Madre Restaurant, San Francisco
What’s your favourite restaurant?
After our recent trip to SF, Gracias Madre in the Mission. The food is 100% Organic and Plant Based and AMAZING - 2211 Mission St. San Francisco, CA
Where’s your go to place to relax?
Bed! Lounging with one of our cats, maybe the husband if he can sit still for 5 minutes and a book or a classic movie.

Where is on your travel hit list for 2017?
Copenhagen, Ireland, Berlin and a French road trip.
Which city in the world would you love to live in for just 1 year?
Amsterdam on a house boat. Last time we visited we found beautiful streets to walk, friendly faces, great food places, independent shops and amazing coffee too :)
What are your favourite pieces on the G&S website at the moment?
The Carrie Coat, Skinny Hazen Dip Dye Black Jeans and the Move Bra.
What is your personal style?
Cosy and relaxed with Bohemian outbursts (for home and wardrobe).
Who is your fashion hero / style icon?
It’s more like era’s than people - I have always been in love with anything 1920’s through to 1940’s and the 1970’s too!
Which item of clothing do you most treasure?
Just now it’s a boho (big sleeved) indian dress with bells! Just like my mum wore in the 70’s & early 80’s.
What is your 'can't live without' beauty product?
We sell Fat and The Moon Lip and Cheek Stain on our website and I take mine everywhere with me.
Why is shopping ethical important to you?
I hate the idea of our fragile planet and anyone being harmed just to save money and so we can over consume and wear what we want.
