My favourite wedding invitations (of the moment)

I’ve spied a lot of gorgeous wedding suites on Pinterest lately. I’ve been really drawn to invitations that feature handwritten or scripty fonts in gold and rose gold foil. When they are set against darker backgrounds the words pop off the page.

Floral flat lays also seem to be popular at the moment too. I’ve seen a lot of designers are using big, full blooms and deconstructed botanicals. The result is a design that is both striking and distinctive.

Have you seen any wedding invitations that have caught your eye lately? Leave the details in the comments below.

4 of the prettiest journals you’ll ever see

Now as you are already well aware I am a journal junkie. I don’t even want to try and put a figure on the number of beautiful, blank journals I have sitting in the cupboard to the right of me. The lure of a new journal is way too great for me to ignore much like shoes and handbags are to other people.

I was going through my bookmarks on the weekend when I found a link to a fabulous artist, Evelyn Henson. She creates beautiful art that inspires people to create a brightly coloured life. Now, she has a whole lot of awesome stuff on her website (art prints, greeting cards and mugs and more) but what I’m really loving are her journals. If you’re a journal junkie I think you’ll love them too. ♥

The world of M.E.S.H.

The world created by Marianne Eriksen Scott-Hansen, a Danish paper artist, freelance designer of haute couture fashion accessories jewellery and interiors, is soft and ethereal, full of ruffled petals and textured layers that cascade to the ground or down the body. While a lot of the work she shares online are large format installations, she also has an amazing eye for detail. Her small, refined pieces – which she describes as jewellery/garment hybrids have been worn by A-listers, fashionistas and ballerinas. Regardless of the format, whether big or small, her work exudes a certain softness – a dreaminess that makes you want just to nestle in between the petals to sleep.
