Girl's Home

We've been catching up with Rach and Drew on their annual visit to the Girl's Home and they have sent us some more lovely pics. We wrote a few weeks ago about the home (click below to see more about Madre Albertina's order and all of the good work it achieves) Here are the Girls heading off to the big annual festival in Nicaragua "La GriterĂ­a"  which could literally be translated as the shouting...sounds pretty good to us! All set with smiles, music and the iconic pink Girls Home bags! A snap of the girls in action with the fab Rach As always, if you want to follow the Girl's Home or make a donation please click here:

Behind the Scenes: Mint Velvet

We've had a rather Model Monday with Mint Velvet ! Almost done for the day but still working hard with our gorgeous photographer Ellie Hyde.  Here is a sneak peek of them all at work...this is why we love a Monday morning at NICE .

The Girl's Home

Our Nice Directors, Rachel Collingwood and Drew Sutton are back in Nicaragua for their annual visit to The Girls Home !   They have been suporting The Girls Home, where Madre Albertina’s order of nuns care for and nurture 25 girls. The girls are social orphans, not able to live with family members due to distinctive circumstances.  Rachel and Drew spend a month a year at the home helping at the centre, whilst the rest of the year is spent raising funds for the amazing work of the nuns and the home. They have been updating us on their time there so far and are having a great time. They have sent us some photos to show us how things are going.
