It feels like just yesterday that I held my book in my hands for the first time, so it’s surreal to now be just a few weeks away from the UK book release. To mark the publication of the book I’m teaming up with long-time friends west elm to throw a #makeyousmilestyle party at their premiere UK store on Tottenham Court Road. I’m excited to celebrate colour with friends old and new – if you would like to join in the fun, click here here to RSVP and reserve your place! American readers – stayed tuned for exciting news in the next few weeks…!

  1. How fun! Love the invite and can’t wait to get your book- I pre ordered it! 🙂

  2. So genuinely excited for you – the very, very best part about becoming a published author is once the book is out there – all that very hard work, late nights, research – you realise how very worth it it was. I know first hand!

    Enjoy this wonderful time and celebrate your achievement.

    I love your blog and your bright chatty social media exchanges and I very much look forward to purchasing and reading through your book.

  3. Hi Will

    Many congratulations on your book launch.

    I’d LOVE to come to the event on April 16th, but unfortunately I’m not in London that day (I’ll be on a floristry course), so won’t be able to make it…which is such a shame.

    Hope you have a wonderful evening and hopefully catch up soon.

    Best wishes
