Embroidered Everything! Part One: Embroidered Handbag

A day of inspiration

Today's blog is a short one to offer you a bit of inspiration for everyday or the year ahead. I think we are surrounded by so much negativity, it's easy to get sucked up into it all and hard to just enjoy the moment. Also when we are going through change, or trying to make [...]

Make it: Frozen Banana Treats

Today is the last day of holidays for me and I am sure a few others but that doesn't mean the last day of summer fun. With daylight savings in NSW and Victoria there is plenty of time after work to enjoy a picnic, a quick swim at the beach or a run etc and [...]

A year in the making!

As the year draws to an end, we all reflect on the year and start planning our goals, dreams and lives in general ready for the new year. One of my "new years resolutions" this year was to make as many gifts as I could. I really wanted to challenge myself as I haven't been [...]

DIY Embellished Sweatshirt

Over the last couple of years the humble sweater (or jumper as we call it in Australia!) has become quite the statement piece. Captured in street style shots across the globe, it has been printed with slogans and images, embellished and decorated, slashed and sewn back up. And it's not just the mainstream brands that [...]

A day at Paris Fashion Week

We have just returned from holidays in France and while there I got the chance to travel to Paris for Fashion week! For those not in the fashion industry it is almost impossible to actually get a ticket to get into any of the shows, you can barely find out where the shows are being [...]
