Liebster Award

I've been nominated for the 'Liebster Award' by the extremely talented Katy over on her blog thank you Katy! The Liebster Awards are basically a platform for new bloggers to share a little bit about themselves & the rules are as follows...

Link back to the person that nominated you.
Answer the 11 questions asked by the person who nominated you.
Nominate 11 bloggers that have less than 200 followers and notify them.
Make a list of 11 questions for them to answer.

1. What inspires you?
photography- I just have a need to photograph and document even the little things and more often than not i use my photography to inspire my design work, street style is also a big inspiration coming from Bristol everyone is very arty with an eclectic style and of course travel!

2. Why did you start your blog?

I wanted a place to document life in our first home , I see this blog as an extension of my many sketchbooks, mood boards and collections, I wanted a place to document the design of our first house from start to finish I see it as a place to hold photographs and document the pretty things I make and collect, inspirational things I see and memories I do not want to forget.

3. What new skill would you most like to learn? I would really like to do an interior design course, as studying textile design and having a huge interest in photography I love putting together themes and colour stories for interior ideas and think it would really interest me to take up an evening or internet interior course.

4. Favourite place to visit? Thailand was the place that inspired much of my first ASOS collection with its colourful sunsets and markets, New York is also one of my favourite places to visit but without having to travel far my day to day favourite place to visit is my family home, now that I have my own home I appreciate my family home much more and love to visit as it still feels very much like home. 

5. What do you hope to accomplish this year? 
I would love for us to finish renovating our home and to just enjoy living in it , continue to create and design new fashion , jewellery and textile collections and begin to plan a really pretty wedding!

6. What is your favourite piece of jewellery?
I am an avid jewellery collector and love vintage costume jewellery but my favourite piece has to be my engagement ring, it is literally the most beautiful thing I have ever seen and I have not stopped staring at it since George proposed in Disneyland Paris last year.

7. Share the Blogs you most enjoy reading.  - I just love Georgias style it is pretty similar to my own with her baggy crops and high waists. Her outfit photos are also really pretty!  - Because it is just beautiful! and has the nicest DIYs

8. Summer or winter?

I love a mix of them both , I love winter for layering up knitwear and hot chocolates but I love summer for picnics and cocktails

9. Do you speak any other languages? I studied French, German and briefly Latin! but cannot speak any well!

10. What makes you happy? I am happiest when I am working in my home studio on new designs.
