Paper To Petal


This book marries my love for crafting & flowers, and I can not wait to get my hands on it! It will be released in August & you can preorder it on Amazon (which is what I just did). I'm seriously drooling over these pictures....

Abigail Brown

I've blogged about Abigail Brown a couple of times (here & here) & I'll keep on blogging till the whole world knows about her amazing handmade birds. I hope someday I will be able to purchase a peacock for myself (£500 pounds! Sob sob)

DIY: Piñata


Looking for a slightly adult version of a piñata? Well, how about DIYing this flower filled piñata? I think it's a marvellous idea & I hope one of my clients will let me do this one day!

Home Sweet Home: Gu Qi & Mobai


This Beijing home of furniture designer Gu Qi & his graphic designer girlfriend Mobai is the epitome of cool in my books. The use of wood & the abundant light & airiness of the space is my dream come true.

Real Beauty


This commercial by Dove really hits a nerve for women everywhere. If you're a woman & haven't already seen this, please do & if you're a guy, please show this to the women in your life.

Dove's description of the commercial: "Women are their own beauty critics. Only 4% of women around the world consider themselves beautiful. At Dove, we are committed to creating a world where beauty is a source of confidence, not anxiety. So, we decided to conduct a compelling social experiment that explores how women view their own beauty in contrast to what others see."

Remember ladies, you are more beautiful than you think!

P/S: Once you've wiped away those tears welling up in your eyes, check out the men's version of the commercial. Hilarious!
