I don't really have a need to collect wedding inspiration being already married and all, but I just can't stop admiring other people's weddings. Look at this one- it would have to be one of my favourites to date. A woodland / cotton-themed wedding. Discovered via The Green Wedding Shoes.
The cotton garlands and bouquets are so gorgeous and unique.
Where do these people get their brilliant ideas from?
These pretty pics arethe work of Australian girls Renee-Anne and Angela D’Alton. They run an online Vintage / Retro clothing shop together "The Twin Set" which you can visit here. I love how they haven't just photographed the outfits flat, or on a mannequin but have taken the time to dress-up and photograph each piece creatively.
And here's a couple of pages from their 'look book'...
I have always had a soft spot for tutu / tulle skirts since my brief childhood days as a ballerina. I just love them. I used to work on Madison magazine and my editor would occasionally wear a pouffy tutu skirt to work, one even more colourful and puffy than these (something you could only do in a women's fashion magazine office!). They are so fun and fanciful.
About two weeks ago I saw one in Sportsgirl just like this. Though it's not in the 'online shop' part of their website at the moment which is strange... but they do feature a pic of it in the style-me section:
Cute graphics and concept behind these 2010love shirts spotted over at Kind over Matter. "2010love is a symbol created to inspire people to make a positive change in their own lives and the lives of others..."
... read all about it here, purchase a shirt here, and download desktop wallpaper here. I just love the typography!
I didn't know until recently about the differences between soy and parrafin wax candles. Parrafin wax, which your standard candle is petrolium based and is less clean burning, producing soot when it burns. Soy is much cleaner and is of course plant-based which sounds much more pleasant than something that comes from crude oil.
Australian company Queen B makes Beeswax candles which are also clean burning, more environmentally friendly and support Australian beekeepers. Look online here for their full range.
