If you haven't seen it already, check out Maya's, gorgeous piece - from the Just Another Mum blog - on packing for the hospital here. Cucumber was so happy that Maya decided to tuck one of our slate ruffle dresses into her bag to help keep her feeling calm, cool and stylish even while breastfeeding!

You'll be pleased to hear that since this piece went out, Maya's had a beautiful baby girl, Chiara Santi Sargent, 6.3 pounds. And here she is:

You can see more of Maya and Chiara in her lovely instagram feed.

Our newest favourite is their Cirrus portable steamer. It's had rave reviews from everyone from Lisa Armstrong at the Telegraph to the Evening Standard and we know why - it works - and it's one of those things that just makes life easier.

If you feel like pinching a penny, we love the Pilo fabric shaver.
All those sad bobbled jumpers at the bottom of your drawer will have a new lease of life - presto, bingo, an almost new sweater wardrobe!

Look out for Cucumber this month

we'll be featured on the Elvie website in a guest blog, in Woman's Weekly on the 23rd, on Stripey Coral's Instagram feed from Ibiza, in the Oxford Times and the on American site Genneve and more!

And this is the month the delicious @curvynyome will be doing an instagram takeover of our very own account on the 17th - we can't wait to see what cool magic she is going to work on us.

Cucumber Around the World

We like to think that Cucumber is just about everywhere! We've had enquiries and orders and pics from every corner of the globe. Here's one from one very glam Stateside fan. We love your style!
If you'd like to be included in our monthly newsletter roundup, drop us a line with your details and we'll include a free tote bag with your next order - we'd love to see you on board

do this - remember those pre-Amazon days, when if you wanted a book, you actually went to a book shop? (And don't say, 'what's that?') Well, we've found a humdinger of a bookshop, ink@64 in the far reaches of Islington. With knowledgeable staff, an excellent selection and a motto that is 'books and drink' I don't think we need to say much more. Go now!

read this - While you're at ink@64 see if you can pick up Educated by Tara Westover, which follows the extraordinary journey of Tara from her Mormon survivalist family's beginnings, her struggle for an education ends with her in Cambridge. An astonishing and unusual coming-of-age story.
