Gift Guide: Mom December 08, 2017 07:51 1 Comment
I've noticed the older I get, the less I want stuff just for the sake of it. I'm really happy to just get a hug or a catch up over a cup of tea for any occasion, instead of something just for the sake of it.
But what I always love is something shared: whether it's an experience, or some item that has significance to me and the giver.
As part of this blog post, I thought it would be nice to do a shoot with my mom in matching pyjamas. I had the idea that if we both wore similar sleepwear, we would go to bed and wake up with happy thoughts of each other.
But it turns out the shoot ended up being a gift in itself. My mom lives about an hour away from me and in the chaos that is life, she doesn't really know much about my day to day life. It was so wonderful to have her step into my world and share a small slice of what goes on in my working day.
The lovely Peter Dreissel took these pics at his studio and he has packages for mom and daughter portraits. We had so much fun doing this shoot, I'd highly recommend you give it a try!

Dreams Come True
As a teenager I remember walking around bookstores and newsstands, enviously eyeing the very precious-looking imported fashion magazines. I'd flip through the pages of the massive volumes and be completely in awe of the beautiful fashion, images and people.
I could say this year has started out with a dream coming true, but that wouldn't exactly be true. I could never have conceived of something like this back then. British Vogue recently contacted me wanting to feature me in their February issue on a page titled "Looks We Love". Thrilled? Understatement.
It went on sale a few days ago and I wanted to share this page with you. Hint: It's number 5.
I'll probably be heady on this feeling for several weeks to come. I think a bottle of the best bubbly might be in order!
