Tonight I have been getting in to the Christmas spirit, preparing for the present wrapping and swirling delicate ribbons into long loose curls whilst watching my all time favourite Christmas film, Miracle on 34th Street, and munching on my first mince pie of the season. Talk about clichés, I know. Then, during the finale of the film, where I am yet again, screeching at the screen that I too, believe, believe in Santa Clause, I decided my time would be better spent making some sassy swirls to be worn to some swanky festivities. So the deliciously wrapped present idea was short lived, one hour and forty eight minutes to be precise, here’s to trusty tin foil, the most efficient, effective and shiny wrapping paper ever invented, and here’s to another new fascinating fascinator creation by yours truly.
There is nothing more inspiring than a rainy day. The perfect excuse to hide away from the wet, woeful world and get lost in possibilities. So today, a particularly miserable looking Friday, I decided to turn off the glue gun and return back to the good old fashioned needle and thread. A few hours, Mr Olly Murs on repeat and the occasional pin prick later, here we have it; a new creation, a new wedding fascinator and a new style for the end of the year.
I would like to thank Nicky Maltby for sending me this picture perfect snap of her and her family having the time of their lives at a recent wedding. Looking beautiful in her bespoke, handmade fascinator, Rosa, made by yours truly, is a striking combination of cream veiling and pink roses and rosebuds on a thin cream alice band. A delicate beauty with a pop of colour, this is a photo I have a whole lotta love for.
