The laid back aesthetic of Manuela Sosa’s house in “the pastoral hills of Vallvidrera, just outside Barcelona” is an inviting and understated home. Manuela is a florist who runs the flower studio, ‘Gang and the Wool‘ from a greenhouse on her property. She also has a very cool dog.

I’ve been loving the new weekly feature on Miss Moss titled Mid Week Distraction, curated by the ever so talented Diana. She always has an exceptional eye for the interesting, funny and beautiful.

Condiment brand Sir Kensington’s recently hosted a two-day exhibition titled “The Fries of New York” to celebrate “ketchup’s  closest friend”. One hundred individual fries were “collected from some of the most acclaimed chefs and iconic restaurants in the city” and displayed as if they were in a museum.
