Last days of November

3 December 2012

Can I call this an outfit post?! I don't know, I've never posted much of my face, let alone make outfit posts..! December is here but these photos are a some days older. The weather got somehow colder, at last, so I put out my gray coat and my warmest sweater!  Oh, and this perfect garden behind me is from a huge abandoned house.. I don't know how it's still so green but it looks beautiful!  (And I really thought of climbing in for a moment but no.) 

Premade themes: Birdie! (and a friend's giveaway)

30 November 2012

At last I made a premade theme available for purchase! I've been thinking of adding premade themes in my portfolio for months and since I had too much  free time I decided I should start making them!

Birdie is a Blogger theme, with a beautiful background image (you can use your own of course if you prefer it!), three custom fonts, a beautiful post footer and top navigation widget! The header image is not included (but I'm always enthusiastic for some graphic work if you'd like me to make you one)! Premade themes will be at the flat price of 50€.
Preview here! I hope you like it as I much as I do and I'll be making more for sure!

My best friend Helene is having a beautiful giveaway on her blog! This mint bow headband from the shop she owns with her mother, Petit Tricot!

Candy colours (+ giveaway winner)

26 November 2012

Hey there!! Last night I wanted to take a photo to use as my profile photo here in blogger (as you can see it's not perfect but my face wouldn't get any better no matter how many shots we took), and besides that we ended up talking so many photos in front of this mirror because the light was lovely! (and isn't Helene's mirror and room just perfect?!!) Other news is that I have a really great idea of creating my own clutch bags but I have to wait for some work money I'll be getting to start doing it! I hope I'll be able to do it until Christmas!!

So, let's move on to the giveaway winner, who is Maria!

I was so entusiastic about this giveaway and I wish there could be more winners... but don't worry I've teamed up with a lovely jewellery shop for another giveaway in December!!

Lovely Type | 02

17 November 2012

I'm not usually fond of Sans Serifs but lately I've been more into minimal styles and Lane is one of the recent downloads that caught my eye straight away! This Lovely Type includes three formats: Regular, Upper Regular and Posh Regular, designed by Apostrophic Labs. Photo by 夏先生 via flickr.

New blog design for Here Comes the Sun!

12 November 2012

I'm sure you're familiar with Here Comes the Sun and the lovely Amanda behind it! Some weeks ago I started making her new layout and a few days ago it was up in her blog! I put a ribbon navigation bar (she saw the one I have here in my blog and really liked it!), custom background, a tiny little kitten in the post footer (!), social meadia icons with hover effect and a lovely image I made for her to use in the 'About me' widget! She was so kind and super nice to work with and I hope you all like it too! *the header image was designed by the talented Tabitha Emma!

It's Okay My Dear SS 2012, by Ashley Cheeks

9 November 2012

I know, I know, it's November and it's really cold outside but once I saw It's Okay My Dear's Spring Summer line I couldn't resist posting about it! I'm sure you'll love it as well! Ashley Cheeks is the designer behind It's Okay My Dear and I found out about her via Audrey Grace boutique's magazine (which is so amazing! Full of lovely editorials and interviews of super talented designers, photographers and bloggers)! Simple as the styling is I absolutely loved it, such a nice mixture of vintage, romantic and girly!

Lovely Type | 01

21 October 2012

I've been thinking of having a typefaces column for a while because I find so many lovely fonts I'd love to share with you (especially the free ones)! I know I've already made some font posts but let's take this one as a first!

This week's Lovely Type is the font family AW Conqueror. Usually in a font download, you get one serif/san-serif/etc family with various weights and styles but AW Conqueror includes five styles, Didot Light, Sans Light, Inline Regular, Slab Light and Carved (which I haven't included here because I downloaded it after I made the post!). You can get it for free on the above link!

Ava's Tale

20 October 2012

I've been following Marie Hochhaus for a while in flickr and browsing her portfolio, it's only sure that you will get blown away and captivated by her amazing and dreamy photography. Even though it's hard to choose only some of her photos, this last session for Material Girl magazine has got me  thinking these photos could only belong in a storybook. (I wish I knew the story behind it.)

Polyvore favourites 05

6 October 2012

It's already October but it's still kind of warm here so the heaviest piece of clothing you can wear are cardigans or light jackets..! I'm so looking forward to sweater weather though!
