15 Sneak Peeks of #MooiEnLiefbyTDP & Logo Reveal

By May 27, 2015 Mooi en Lief

To top off the exciting week of “15 things” blog posts, I have 15 sneak peeks of my collaboration with Mooi en Lief! How exciting?! If you’re still not sure what this is all about, then I suggest you not only click here but also carry on reading… I’m sorry if I’m a little vague and mysterious in this post, but I can’t give away too much! 

1 – INSPIRATION: David Bowie – Oh You Pretty Things (1971)

You will soon realise why exactly this is an inspiration. There are 2 reasons, 1 of them you can probably guess straight away *cough* the decade *cough* but the other one won’t be so clear until the socks are released…

2 - INSPIRATION: Research Moodboard


As part of my research into the collection (this was a long while back) I created a moodboard with original ideas, cuttings, swatches, photographs, patterns and all sorts of bits and bobs to share what the collection is really about.

 3 - INSPIRATION: Research Moodboard


If you didn't already know, the collection is actually made up of knee high socks, so this is just a small snippet of some original inspiration...

4 - INSPIRATION: Photoshoot


A really exciting part of the collection is the photoshoot! We're going to be shooting it soon, so I created another separate moodboard for how I think it should look. It's been really fun putting it together and I can't wait to see the results!

5 - INSPRATION: Photoshoot


Without spoiling it too much, the shoot is going to be quite laid back and have a fun, summery vibe. You'll probably be able to work out why with a few of the other sneak peeks in this post!

6 - IDEAS: Workbook


As part of the creation process, I started filling up a humongous workbook (it's really big) and it's been so helpful. It's basically a book which documents the process of creating a collection of socks, from the very first rough ideas to the finished product. Here you can see a little glimpse of very rough branding ideas.

7 - IDEAS: Workbook


Here you can see a sneak peek of an idea for the photoshoot. It's actually quite an interesting process putting ideas together and seeing how things could work out...

8 - COLOURS: Pantone Pens


If you don't do fashion design, or general designing, then you may not have heard of Pantone. Pantone are basically the go to designing pens... often designers use them as a starting point for their collections, so you can see a glimpse of the colours which I focused on.

9 - COLOURS: Sock Swatch


Now this is really exciting! Here you can see an actual swatch from an actual sock. How crazy! It really was weird getting the first samples through and being like... "That's MY sock!", so there you go. A sneak peek... oooh, blue! 

10 - COLOURS: Sock Swatch


Another glimpse into the collection. Black and yellow... that's all I'm saying! ...so crazy right? SO CRAZY. You'll soon be able to buy these babies... eek!

11 - OTHER BITS & BOBS: Photoshoot Clothes


I have to admit going shopping for the photoshoot was pretty fun. Browsing pieces to really emphasis what it's all about is actually harder than you think though. Are you getting excited?

12 - OTHER BITS & BOBS: Photoshoot Clothes


Another little snippet of the photoshoot clothes. There are also props too which is another really exciting thing to shop for...

A Few Words 1

13 - A FEW WORDS: Tolly Dolly Posh


We thought it would be cool to sum up the collection process so far. For me it's been a huge learning curve; I've worked really hard and so have Mooi en Lief themselves. I'm so grateful for the experience and I don't think I will ever forget it. It's getting so exciting now... eep!

14 - A FEW WORDS: Jacquelina Deerenberg (Mooi en Lief)


I like to talk face to face: explaining myself and understanding the other person better. Tolly and I had to work together from a distance which went better than I expected. We have emails which could fill a complete book and I loved that whole journey with her.

15 – LOGO: Mooi en Lief by Tolly Dolly Posh

Dah-dah! How exciting hey?! This is the official #MooiEnLiefbyTDP logo! You may recognise a certain font… yup! That is the font from my old blog design… it kind of just worked seeing as that’s when we started the collaboration. It’s like a mix of both TDP now and then, as well as bit of the boldness of Mooi en Lief. What d’ya think?

Scrap Social #5 – 15 New Scrapbook Pages

By May 25, 2015 Scrap Social

What has the “Queen of Never Finishing Blog Post Series” gone and done? Combined two series in one. Yes, today we have 15 new scrapbook pages for #ScrapSocial! Dah-dah! For those of you who want to see more of my scrapbook, carry on reading…

Scrapbook Pages - Fashion Scrapbook Inspiration

For these pages, I seemed to be loving red. I think there’s something kinda’ weird about red; It’s a strong and powerful colour yet it just doesn’t sit well with me personally. But for some reason, it just worked with these pages. I love how all of the colours clash and combine in a really funky way, and the shapes all blend nicely. As I haven’t looked at these pages in a while, it’s interesting to see what I disliked then and now.

These pages are totally different. The first two are very “me” in the fact that there are random features put together (aka. a cucumber tree?) and purple mountains, but the other two are actually directly from Tumblr. A long while ago, I decided to turn my Tumblr into a rainbow… so when you scroll it magically goes through lots of different coloured images. I then printed out each colour and popped into my scrapbook… so here’s white! It’s very minimalistic, but I kinda’ like it.

I experimented with this Tumblr section of my scrapbook by colouring the pages, scribbling and laying the pages out differently, as you can see with this grey and black spread. Also may I note that I am in fact, OK, and I do in fact have a small smidgen of a crush on Brooklyn Beckham. But, SHHHH!

Next up is navy to red. Yes, red again! I’m actually glad I did this colour scheme thingy-ma-bobby though. It’s a great source of inspiration for when I’m thinking about different colours (?!). I especially like this lilac/purple page that I created. What do you think? Do you like the idea?

Scrapbook Pages - Fashion Scrapbook Inspiration

Last but not least, the 15th page! This one was the orange segment of my Tumblr and I don’t know… I’m a bit ‘meh’ about it. It’s nothing special but then again that’s what scrapbooking is all about. It’s just about mixing lots of different ideas even if they don’t work out the way you had hoped. Orangggggge… 🍊

15 Pins On Pinterest That I’m Loving

By May 23, 2015 Fashion

Recently I’ve really started to love Pinterest. It’s like a nicer, less stressful version of Tumblr. You can still find those grungey pictures that inspire you on a dark Friday night, but you can also find pastel doughnuts and lots and lots of tulle. It’s a winner for everyone! I decided to pick out a few gems that I’ve pinned recently in this “pins on Pinterest” post! Enjoy…

15 Pins On Pinterest - Fashion Inspiration Board

~ FOLLOW ME ON PINTEREST – ALL IMAGES PINNED HERE ~

1 – 3: Luxurious textures…

I’ve been loving textures that express all things luxurious recently. From organzas to satins, silks and marbles, I’m just in love! I’m actually going to be buying some organza for a DIY soon *cough* you can probably see what it’s for here *cough*…

4 – 6: Complimenting colours…

These three images really compliment each other but they also offer a lot of inspiration for either beauty, drinks or fashion. Plus, who doesn’t love a bit of Susie Bubble? She’s my style inspiration 24/7.

7 – 9: Deep and dark…

Getting slightly more grungey here but still pretty darn cute, I picked out this awesome pair of DMs with flowers through the laces and this poem that was created with a typewriter and receipt. Some really unique ideas!

10 – 12: Pinks…

I feel like I’ve been loving pink recently even if I don’t necessarily wear it a lot in real life. It’s just a nice colour and I love seeing it in different forms rather than just the normal girly-girl styles.

13 – 15: Shimmer and splash…

I will forever be a lover of sparkles. I also love stickers and the seaside so I suppose these 3 images portray a few of my loves. Now that I think about it, I’d love to do something with stickers… hmmm!

15 People Who Inspire Me To Be Myself

By May 21, 2015 DIY & Lifestyle

If you didn’t see on my social media, then you won’t know that this week I’m going to do a few posts which are lists of 15, to of course, celebrate my birthday! Woop! So, I thought I would write up a list of people who inspire me. I know the title suggests that they inspire me to be me, but alongside that, some of these awesome people inspire me to be creative too. I seemed to get asked the question of who inspires me a lot, so here’s a full list! In no particular order…

15 People Who Inspire Me - Paul Smith Valentino ASHISH(via Instagram)

1. Helena Lester-Card – Blogger & Vintage Seller – Sassy World

Helena is a fashion blogger who just rocks. her. stuff! As well as running an absolutely killer vintage fashion shop (Sassy World), she also has her own personal style blog which is the most colourful thing I have ever seen. She inspires me to be myself whatever the weather!

15 People Who Inspire Me - Paul Smith Valentino ASHISH(via Instagram)

2. Everyone in The Confetti Crowd – Bloggers

I’m sort of cheating here but Helena is also in “The Confetti Crowd” which is a group of 5 kick-ass fashion bloggers with the most crazy and eclectic styles. I’m obsessed with their stuff and they have an awesome message to spread!

 3. Paul Smith – Fashion Designer

Okay, so quite a big one here, but Paul Smith has always intrigued me. I find how he puts so much detail and intricacy into everything he does very inspiring. I think he shows us all that even when success hits, you don’t have to lose yourself in it all!

15 People Who Inspire Me - Paul Smith Valentino ASHISH(via Instagram)

4. Laura Whalebone – Blogger – That’s So Yesterday

Laura is another fashion blogger (and mum) who’s style has yet to fade, and I’d hope it never does! Every outfit she posts inspires me to never stop being myself, which is rather simple but it’s also really awesome. Laura breaks all the “rules” and I love that!

15 People Who Inspire Me - Paul Smith Valentino ASHISH(via Instagram)

5. Everyone on Humans of New York – Facebook Page

This kinda’ sounds weird, but when I check in on Facebook and there’s an inspiring story or some uber cool person posing on my screen, I instantly feel inspired to just carry on being me and do what I love. If there is one Facebook page you should follow, please make it HONY!

6. Katie Oldham – Blogger – Scarphelia

Another blogger but I don’t care! Katie is one of those people who just always has something amazing about to come out of her… fingertips? She’s another person who can just post anything and make me feel inspired. She also follows me on Twitter and her support is unreal.

15 People Who Inspire Me - Paul Smith Valentino ASHISH(via Instagram)

7. Zoe Hellewell – Blogger – Zoe London

Oh dear, another blogger… but I’m a blogger myself so I have to mention some right? You’ve probably all heard of Zoe and her bright blue hair! She’s down right awesome. She’s a blogger who works her socks off and deserves all the success she has. She inspires not only me but all of her readers to be themselves because nobody else is better…. well, in a nice way!

15 People Who Inspire Me - Paul Smith Valentino ASHISH(via Instagram)

8. Maria Grazia Chiuriand and Pier Paolo Piccioli – Creative Directors – Valentino

Fairly recently, Valentino as a fashion house has really intrigued me so I’m going to put down Maria & Pier for similar reasons to Paul Smith. Valentino is such an interesting brand and all of their recent collections have been so beautiful.

15 People Who Inspire Me - Paul Smith Valentino ASHISH(via Instagram)

9. Susanna Lau – Fashion Blogger – Style Bubble

Everytime I go to my wardrobe, I genuinely ask myself “What would Susie wear?”… I know I love wearing what I want, and I promote that through and through but Susie has the most awesome wardrobe and I will always be inspired. PLUS, she is an incredible writer. Truly brilliant.

15 People Who Inspire Me - Paul Smith Valentino ASHISH(via Instagram)

10. Cara Delevingne – Model & Actress

You might be surprised by this one! The only real ‘celebrity’ on the list and she’s actually a model. I don’t need to explain who she is but I just find that her out-going and care free way of doing things is pretty darn cool. Can I be her?

15 People Who Inspire Me - Paul Smith Valentino ASHISH(via Instagram)

11. ASOS – Fashion Brand

Not technically a ‘person’ but ASOS do inspire me! They seem to have everything put together in just the right way. They’re the most awesome fashion brand there is right now. They cater for all budgets, styles etc. Can I be… ASOS too?

15 People Who Inspire Me - Paul Smith Valentino ASHISH(via Instagram)

12. Frédérique Tietcheu – Fashion Blogger & Confidence Coach – SHE Unleashed

Freddie isn’t just another blogger, she’s also a confidence coach and I can see why. Freddie just expresses being yourself through out everything she does. Plus her style is uber cool too… and that hair? WOW.

15 People Who Inspire Me - Paul Smith Valentino ASHISH(via Instagram)

13. Ashish Gupta – Fashion Designer – ASHISH

A fashion designer who has just done it all in such an awesome way. The “King of Sequins” who has the most epic runway shows ever. I love what ASHISH has to say as a brand, especially more recently with their choice of models… we need more of this!

15 People Who Inspire Me - Paul Smith Valentino ASHISH(via Instagram)

14. My Family

Soppy soppy, get those tissues out, yeah? Haha! I had to mention them though. Ever since I started my blog they have supported me all the way and they just let me be me. I couldn’t ask for anything more. That’s my sister and nephew on the left, and my mum, sister and I all wearing stripes on the right!

15 People Who Inspire Me - Paul Smith Valentino ASHISH(via Instagram)

15. YOU – Followers on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, BlogLovin and YouTube

Don’t put away those tissues just yet because I need to put you in here too! Yes, YOU! Anyone who reads my blog inspires me because they support me. You guys never (really) have anything bad to say and you just embrace what I do and I love that! Thank you, like seriously… thank you! Those two pictures were taken by a school in Texas… yes, that is me on the big screen!
