VIDEO: Vogue 73 Questions with Anna Wintour

Hello you, It sure has been awhile!! Why haven't you been getting my updates in your inbox? I've been on a European adventure! I have just spent the last 2 and a half months travelling throughout Europe & Scotland. What an amazing experience it has been. I've been inspired by historic european architecture, Scandinavian design, beautiful cities and even more amazing people. 

I'm excited for 2015! Over the coming weeks and months you'll be seeing new updates in my travel diary (added to my website late last year, check it out here if you haven't already!), my favourite interior design trends, must see architecture worldwide, stunning event style and lots more!
You will also notice updates throughout my website and blog, including my new services page (coming soon!) as well as my portfolio. I'd also like to give you all the opportunity to tell me what you want to see! Are you looking for inspiration for your bedroom makeover? Event & Wedding Styling? Must see travel destinations? Outdoor Styling tips? Just hola! Simply send me an email or comment on any blog post via my website.

For now I thought I would share another favourite video from the Vogue 73 Questions Series and what better way than to start my first blog of 2015 than with a video from the fashion queen, Anna Wintour. 

Happy belated 2015 to you all and I look forward to hearing from you soon!

Celebrity Wedding: Lauren Conrad

If you are anything like me you spent your teen years hooked on some of the first reality shows staring the gorgeous Lauren Conrad!! The always fashionable, stylish and loveable star has come a long way from her days on Laguna Beach! The 28-year-old fashion designer and her 34-year-old husband got married along the California Coastline in September. Lauren not only designed her couture custom-designed Badgley Mischka wedding gown (and later changed into a stunning Monique Lulliher dress) but she also styled the whole event! Lauren chose a neutral palette from the bridesmaid dresses to the reception decor. Simple white flowers and greenery were seen in Lauren's bouquet as well as in brass vessels at the ceremony.
