I’ve come home to a city that feels like a jungle. Everything is so green and flowers are blossoming like crazy. Here are some lovely yellow ones from around town.

Bloom Series is a collaboration between between floral stylist Jardine Hansen and photographers Lisa and Pete. Together they host events where Jardine shares her flower knowledge with enthusiastic students, and all the beautiful floral creations are documented by Lisa and Pete. Check out some pics from previous events below. They’re hosting a posy making class on 19 January in Redfern, Sydney. For more details and to reserve a spot check out the website here.

IT. is the clothing label lovechild of Paris based German designer Isabell Thrun. The spring/ summer 2014 collection entitled Blütezeit has a strong floral focus. I put together a flower crown for her lookbook which you can checkout below. Head to her online shop to buy a handmade piece (my personal favourite is the Muscari).


For more info be sure to check out Isabell’s website. Photographs by Agata Wolanska with creative direction by La Vitrine 341.

And a big thank you to the beautiful Mariëtta for introducing me to Isabell and so many other wonderful people in Paris.

For our final weekend in France for the year we went to a friend’s house in Morzine. I learnt (not very gracefully but nonetheless) to ski backwards and we had a great two days on the pistes. Compared to summer (check my other alps post here) when the insects and birds and water fill your ears it was so very quiet in winter. When we stopped yabbering to one another there was a beautiful peacefulness.



It was good to be surrounded by nature once again. We made a wreath for the maison and enjoyed breathing the clean air in the sun that shone all day long.

Thank you all for a lovely weekend x

So incredibly excited to be published in The Planthunter today. My sister and I put together a simple little guide to making foraged floral wreaths. Check it out here. I love what founder/ editor Georgina Reid is doing and very much look forward to contributing again in the future.
