Salads To Go

via

Doesn't this look good? 

I haven't seen it yet myself but the promise of 50 'lunch salads, smoothies, make-ahead breakfasts, heat-and-serve dinners and easy picnic appetizers' in a jar sounds pretty tempting to me....

Jeans In Vogue

Paris Vogue

Continuously reinvented, re-styled and rejuvinated season after season, jeans remain a faithful wardrobe essential.

The secret may just be in that special blue that never gets old and somehow always manages to echo lazy summer days.

Fabulous 50s Frocks Brooch


I just had to share these wonderful 50s fashion brooches made by Tasmanian artist Grace Gladdish for her trees4thewood etsy shop.


I'm such a big fan of all that she makes but these little brooches have for some time now caught my eye and stolen my heart...


Fabulous 50s fashion to wear on your lapel!
Each one is a little gem of sartorial splendor.


The great news is that some of these brooches are 25% off regular price right now.
You will find them in the shop's sale section but my guess is that you'll have to hurry to get one before they're gone....


Be sure to check out Grace's amazing original artwork (you'll be glad you did) and her wonderful handmade pencils and notebooks.

Bridal Boho Corsage


This boho bridal flower wrist corsage is a collection of all sorts of white hues and textures.


The flower itself has oyster white organza petals and layers of bridal white tulle. The centre is hand-beaded with sparkling white sequins and transluscent silver glass beads.


Peeking out from under the flower there's handmade fabric leaves, a snippet of amazing vintage lace, delicately shimmering dupioni silk ribbon and the almost ethereal white organza ribbon that ties it around your wrist.

Chrysanthemum Inspiration


 FairytaleFlower Chrysanthemum Flower Hair Pins

My latest flowers are inspired by the lovely chrysanthemum. Their petals coil and curl in the most unruly way to create a seething harmony.
They weigh next to nothing but have magor visual impact and are an absolute favourite of mine. 

 FairytaleFlower Chrysanthemum Flower Hair Pins set of 3

Each seperate flower is attached to a hair clip, the idea being that they can be worn on their own or bunched together to make a more striking headpiece.


The stylistic freedom they offer is immense as they come in various sizes and you can position them wherever and however you want to so that they take the shape you wish.


They were also a big hit with a couple of my Fairytale Flower brides who trusted my suggestion and ended up wearing these on their big day.
They loved them!

August Wedding

Andrea & Jason

There's something to be said about an August wedding.
Exchanging vows in the glorious summer heat
amidst scents and sounds of the year's most carefree holiday season sure sounds good to me.

Thank you Andrea for the fabulous picture of your August wedding. 

Isn't she beautiful?

Dusky Rose



These dusky rose organza flowers are part of my newest flower craze.
The idea is that there are a number of similar flowers made in varying sizes and the wearer decides how or where they will be worn.



You can turn them into a floral crown; scatter them whimsically in your hair; arrange them artfully; wear them on your bodice or your sash; divide them amongst your wedding party; gift them to your bridesmaids.



I attach them to individual hair clip/ pin brooch findings and leave the rest to the recipient.
