A huge trend for this summer is smocked fabric. From dresses to swimsuits, this sewing technique is showing up in a big way. Smocking adds texture and dimension to clothing while giving basic fabrics a fresh twist. I am personally loving all the smocked detailing on clothing this season. Because smocked fabric is stretchy, it is also the perfect choice for maternity or postpartum garments.
Hello darlings, today I wanted to share my tips for hosting a traditional British afternoon tea. Now I know depending on where you live it may not be possible to host small get togethers because of covid restrictions so make sure to bookmark or pin this post for when gatherings are once again allowed in your area. These photos were actually taken pre-pandemic, when I hosted a few girlfriends for a tea party celebrating my 30th birthday. To be honest, it’s one of many blog posts that I put on hold sharing since the timing never seemed to feel right while in the midst of a pandemic. But now that we are over a year into the covid-19 disaster I’m ready to keep sharing the content I love to create. Anyways, back to afternoon tea…
Afternoon tea is one of my favourite meals to serve for guests. Dainty sandwiches and desserts are so aesthetically pleasing and of course yummy as well. There is something about a cup tea, that makes you want to sit and linger, promoting wonderful conversations around the table. But how do you host an afternoon tea, and what should you serve? I’m breaking it all down in todays post!
February is here, which means it is not only Valentine’s Day but also it is finally my due date month! Officially my due date is February 18th, but my first baby came 10 days late so I’m not holding my breath. That being said, I am so over being pregnant so fingers crossed bebe comes this month and doesn’t wait until March. Here’s a quick update on everything I’ve been loving this month.
The Gucci GG Marmont line of handbags is a gorgeous collection of totes, shoulder bags and clutches made out of soft maltelassé leather. While I love much of the entire collection, the GG Marmont Maltelassé Small Shoulder Bag is my favourite. It’s such a fun yet practical bag with its chevron stitching and large GG logo. In today’s blog post I’m sharing my full review of the GG Marmont camera bag, including everything I loved and hated.
