Gypsy Dreams began on 27th February 2011 as just another Tumblr with a desire for everything wild and free. This grew over the past few years, taking over my original blog (Chills, Thrills & Spills).

Last year, Gypsy Dreams got a whole new brand makeover with the help of the lovely and talented Emma Benyon. Since then, the Gypsy Dreams shop has been full of stationery and homeware, and I have so many more ideas that I just can’t wait to get stuck in to.

The name itself, ‘Gypsy Dreams’, is two of my favourite Fleetwood Mac songs brought together. It’s what I feel describes me best. A desire to roam, and constantly dreaming of endless possibilities.

Most of my inspiration is drawn from 70s musicians like Stevie Nicks, Joni Mitchell, John Martyn, Simon and Garfunkel, and 90s films and television programmes like Charmed, The Craft and Practical Magic.
