December Inspiration

As the mummy of a boisterous, beautiful nearly two year old little gentleman, I try to fill our days with as much warmth, love, sunshine, and happiness as infinitely possible.

Singing, dancing, watching, running, playing, swimming, talking, eating. And did I mention lots and lots of twinkle twinkle little star? There is so much to do; so much to learn; so much to experience. As a mummy, a designer and / or whatever your daily activities might encompass it is important to remain inspired.

The inspiration board from my latest artwork series is definitely a reflection of my current state of mind. With Summer now upon us, we are spending our days delighting in all of the simple pleasures; the joy of beautiful blue skies; warm air; frequent trips to the pool; soaking up sun rays; and enjoying quality time with family and friends. The holidays are coming and it truly is the most beautiful time of year.

So right now my inspiration board looks a little like this…

What is inspiring you this December? xx

I Want Candy

Indulge your senses with sweet confectionary inspired delights.

From soft sherbet shades to bonbon brights; recent collections took a turn on the sweeter side.

At Stella McCartney’s resort launch, models played croquet alongside lollipop wagons. While at Isaac Mizrahi’s Autumn / Winter collection waiters carried brightly decorated cakes inspired by the delectable gowns on the runway.

From cream puff skirts and candy stripe cocktail dresses, this trend evokes an airy Marie-Antoinette-like indulgence.  For a lighter take on this sugary palette, take arm candy to new heights. Kate Spade’s deliciously playful ‘Cha Cha Chocolate’ clutches = chocolat perfection (pictured right)!

Opulent, whimsical and delectably lovely, what better way to indulge in a concoction of lavish desserts?

Bon Appétit!

Will you indulge in this sweeter way of dressing?
