Moodboard: Wildflower print

The time has come to create a new print for my shop. Here's a peek into my design process. This time around I'm creating a wildflower print, inspired by my wishful thinking for spring to hurry up and arrive!!

Vacances: South of France - bormes les mimosas

mimosa_EttaVee1 This beautiful village is tucked away on the side of a mountain. The drive up to the city made me a little nauseous because of all the twists and turns along the way, but I must say... it was MORE than worth it. Bormes-les-mimosas gets it's name from the mimosa flower which blankets the city around the beginning of the year. Even though the flowers weren't in bloom, the village charmed its way into my heart!

The city is full of cobblestone and small passageways!

flowers bloom EVERYWHERE, which also means there were all kinds of insects pollinating away (and biting the crap out of all of us). But goodness just look at this gorgeousness!

After exploring the city we drove down to a small hidden away beach for a quick cool-off swim. It was so beautiful and the perfect way to finish the day!

Okay, so this was probably the most adorable thing I saw while on our trip to the south. There's a small boat that travels from beach to beach selling chocolate beignets (see small white boat with red flag in photo below)! It parks itself just close enough for customers to walk out to buy their sugary treats! I didn't have any euro on me, so no beignets for me :(

If you ever find yourself in the south of france, I highly recommend visiting Bourmes-les-mimosas. It was hands down the most charming village i've ever visited!

Seeing Color

First and foremost can I just say...spring

Yes, springtime has arrived in Paris in all it's bi-polar weather glory. Yesterday it literally alternated between heavy rain and cloudless blue sky sunshine all day long. My favorite thing about spring here is seeing everything bloom wildly around my neighborhood.

My favorite is this apartment building on our street that is completely covered in ivy. It's so cool to see it grow more and more everyday. Let's take a stroll shall we!?

I'm absolutely in love with this flower shop I pass on my way to the metro <3
