The last couple of posts were on London Fashion Week so I thought I would continue the theme with this one and show you some Paris Fashion Week goodies that I found. It finished on Tuesday so I am a tad late but it’s a lot of fashion to look at and these two designers are the ones that caught my eye the most.
Well it’s been a while and theres no excuse for it! So let’s bypass the apologies and get stuck into an amazing artist that I had the pleasure of meeting.
Top Drawer 2017 was held in London Olympia and it’s a trade show that is filled to the brim with beautiful products and talented artists. I had a blast working there and that’s where I met Poppy Ward.
I was wandering around the show and was immediately drawn to her stand which was filled to the brim with luxurious gem stone colours and large painted botanical leaves. Her products include fabrics, art pieces, fabric and soon to be wallpaper.
Poppy’s work is solely inspired by her trips to Malaysia when she was younger and the essence of that culture shines through the work perfectly. Take a look at her work here, I think it’s absolutely beautiful!
What I love about art, design and general pretty stuff is how passionate people can be when creating such inspirational pieces. When you can see someone enjoying themselves it oozes from their work and that’s definitely what I see in Bunnie (Bonnie) Reiss.
Alright stationery lovers it’s that time again – Papergang time. I think you’re gonna love September’s box because it’s got a helluva lot of goodies. First and foremost the packaging is blue dip dye so I was instantly excited when it arrived in the post. So let’s get stuck in! ( I apologise for my repetitive images and my new succulent plant – I got over excited)
So inside this month’s box included:
- Weekly turquoise ombre planner
- 1 x sheet of gift wrap paper
- 2 x greetings cards
- 1 x calendar postcard
- Post it note pad
I fell in love straight away with the weekly planner. I’ll be honest I’ve fallen off the wagon when it comes to planning and actually using my diary – it all starts off well with good intentions but slowly disintegrates. BUT this beautiful little gem is exactly what I was after. A plain undated diary with just enough space for writing what needs done and space at the side for appointments etc. It’s simple, effective and even has a zip-lock at the back to store stuff in.
The gift wrap paper is designed by British Illustrator Jessica Willan. Its features fun colourful animals complete with celebratory hats. I think it’s a bit quirky and will be doing a post all about Jessica and her other works in a couple days. To complete the box is a little post it pad with “let’s get this sh*t done!” humorous and useful – just wish I worked in an office to properly use it, ah well life goes on.
Hope you enjoyed a brief review of this month’s box and if you would like to sign up for one yourself just head over to the website here. Follow me on Bloglovin’ and find some other great blogs to read and inspire. As always thanks for reading!
