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

Emma Watson’s People Tree Final Collaboration

Emma Watson has launched her third and final People Tree collection. The collection includes sweet dresses in gingham, florals and polka-dots; playsuits; harem pants; and more. Of the design process and experience, Watson said:

“The design process continued with me trying on each and every piece to get the fits just as I wanted them and then I visited Bangladesh to see the clothing actually being made and meet the people making it. It was an incredible and life-changing experience – I really wish everyone had the chance to see the difference Fair Trade makes with their own eyes.”
