Winter Time!

It's official: winter has arrived!!! Warm and beach days are a thing from the past... but wasn't just a few days ago that we were still walking in bikini tops and hawaiianas to get some Kawaii smoothies?!!! Not anymore..

So, how can a girl have some fun without stepping out into the cold streets? Well, looks like there are quite a few options! So, if you don’t feel like running in your lace tights in the rain you can still have a lot of fun in the comfort of your own home in winter!

Here are our top 10 things to do in these winter days:

1. Watch chick-flick movies
2. Do lots of handcrafts
3. Day spa with friends
4. Make a yummy chocolate dessert (cupcakes, brownies, muffins, etc... )
5. Host tea parties for your friends
6. Look through your old pictures and do some scrap-booking
7. Make a romantic dinner for your boyfriend or husband 
8. Read a nice book

9. Make a perfect holiday gift list for… yourself... and go shopping

10. Sleeep!!! :)

Happy weekend and winter time!

Father's Day Free Printable Card

This Sunday is Father’s day! 
I woke up this morning to realized that I haven’t done anything yet for the best dad in the world. Have you?
Here is a card I designed for him.... But sharing it with you so you can also print it at home and give as a gift to your dad or hubby. 
It’s very simple: just print, cut and fold. If you want to add it a little bit extra, you can make a lining in a different color paper and tie it with bakers twain or a thin ribbon. Easy-piecey! Hope you give it a try and celebrate a great Father’s Day!

Classic and Timeless Invitations

I love doing corky invites with illustrations and funky details but once in a while is also nice to do something more glamorous... It's nice to know that there are still some couples that  like elegant-romantic Invitations! 

Tarryn and Peter's wedding Invitations were a great project, quite different to the invitations I've been doing lately and must admit, even though it was a lot of work, I enjoyed every second of it.

The suit includes 3 different kinds of papers -texture, color and gsm- and has many details: from the heart-shaped-diamante and ribbon to the embossed sleeves - all hand-made by Mocho Loco. The envelope with the printed guest details finishes off this classic and timeless invitation. 
I hope you like!

Seem and B-rad's magical day

I woke up this morning and realized: "oh no... winter is here".... All of a sudden it's seriously cold, dark and rainy in Cape Town. Yes: great for hot chocolate and lots of dvd nights but already missing the beautiful sunny days...

So to brighten up the day I would like to share a few pictures of one of my best friend's wedding! Simone married Brad, the love of her life, in a stunning garden themed wedding in the quaint town of Montagu on 17 March this year. We travelled there on Friday afternoon and made a weekend out of it: it was so much fun!!!

I had the honor of being my friend's bridesmaid and was able to share with her every little moment of the most important day in her life... happy tears come to my eyes thinking on all the beautiful memories I have... thank you Sim once again for letting me share such special moments with you: love you so much my friend...

And for all of you that haven't seen them yet, here are some stunning pictures, mainly couple portraits, that the talented Renne Frows from The Famous Frouws took on the day. Enjoy!
