Thursday was one of those days when I simply couldn't wait to get outside and venture to
The Secret Garden I found a few days ago. I have had a fantastic week full of exciting news and the first was that I won the 'Miss Patina's Artist Within' competition! They asked people to sketch their favourite Miss Patina dress and the winner would win their 'Miss Honey' dress.
So here was my entry, I was simply over the moon when they announced I had won on Instagram! I just couldn't believe it! I didn't think in a million years I would win. The other entries were simply fantastic! It's been such a long time since I've sat down with my watercolours and done some illustrations. You could say I lost my confidence with it. I used to paint and draw all the time but recently I've lacked that creative inspiration and motivation.
The dress itself is exquisitely made and I got so many people at work that night asking me where it was from. The delicate and detailed embroidery of the flowers up close is truly beautiful and comes complete with the belt you see. I am now Miss Patina HOOKED! and I already have my eye on the next dress I want to purchase from them. I really did feel like a Princess when wearing this dress and baby blue is one of my favourite colours to wear in Summer.

Flower Crown- Wild Flowers
The artist within me that day was in creative overdrive once more! I was simply buzzing with ideas and you wouldn't believe how many photos were taken! So with that in mind I decided to channel all my ideas into a style video. I love making videos of my adventures and I haven't made one in such a long time. I really wanted you my amazing readers to experience a little bit more of this magical afternoon. I hope you like it. x
Last but not least! As if this post isn't jammed packed enough! I'm also extremely pleased and proud to to announce another.
