[Made by Molu Special] Blog Birthday Giveaway!

Okay I’m a week late but I had to push my blogging aside for a bit to focus on the PhD. This does also mean that my mighty great plans on making something special to for a birthday giveaway got stalled too, which is a real shame as I had been sketching out ideas for a nice new print! Well I guess I’ll have to do that another time….HOWEVER, to make up for that, I have hatched up another little plan………..

So, seeing as I’m a huge (HUGE!) lover of all kinds of prints (an avid collector and occasional maker myself) I decided that I’d treat my readers to a lovely print for their home/workplace, as a little token of my gratitude and appreciation for the last two years! I’ve been recently eyeing up a few prints by the Old English Company on their Etsy store since last November. They are a London-based design company with amazing artwork that combine both illustration and typography (just my kind of thing!!) influenced by food, travel and everyday things. My absolute favourites are the ‘food’ and ‘kitchen’ range…..what that says about me, I haven’t a clue! ;) Seriously though, there’s so many on there that I’d love to get my paws on but with quite a few prints at home (new ones too!) still to make it onto the wall I’ve sadly had to refrain from any purchasing for the time being (boo!)

Anyway, while I may have to stick to window shopping, YOU actually have the chance of owning one of their fabulous prints!!!

So, the big BLOG-BIRTHDAY GIVEAWAY is an unframed A4-size print (value of £16) of your choice!! Ta-da!! :)

[Special Birthday Giveaway]: Candice Wren Pashmina!

candice-wren_MAIN-IMAGEoooooookay….so with this week being my birthday week and seeing as the celebrations have already kicked off since the weekend I’ve decided to feature a ‘special giveaway’ to officially mark the BIG 3.0.! I had initially planned on featuring this until the end of summer but then figured that it was only right I posted it this week so that it wasn’t just me receiving all the fabulous presents!! :D

So, I’ve collaborated with the talented designer-maker Candice Wren to ‘giveawayONE of her stunning Cashmere and Silk pashminas that have been designed and hand-printed by the talented lady herself! I’m a big fan of BOLD design statements and think these do exactly that! What I love about Candice’s designs is how  feminine, fun, eclectic and distinctive they are. The pashminas are made from cashmere and silk which are all carefully sourced from Turkey from the same local shop she first discovered the shawls from! Her techniques largely entail hand-pulled silk screen-printing methods and the use of delicate detailing using vintage fabric appliques and silver or gold trans foil – as you can see in the pashminas featured here. If you haven’t already come across here stunning collection then you’ll find them  in boutiques in London, Ireland and Dubai! candice-wren_pashmina_blog-4_webSo what do we have featured here for the Giveaway? The Black pashmina, from the Valentines range, bears little hearts across both ends where these are embellished with silver and gold trans foil to give it that extra sparkle. This exquisite detailing is also found on the White and Green Pashminas you see here. The white Pashmina has a far more delicate feel with the way the white and silver butterflies are subtly printed across. The Green Pashmina on the other hand ,is the polar opposite and sure makes one hell of a statement; The Gothic skull combined with the delicate butterflies creates the perfect balance of grunge and girly! And lastly, we have the Pink ‘Oh La La Darling‘ Pashmina, which combines vintage fabric appliqués and screen-printed illustrations of  perfume bottles giving it a beautiful and exotic look. I think all four would be absolutely perfect for both day time wear and evening wear; whether you team it up with skinny jeans and a top or across a lovely evening dress! While I think they’re ALL fabulous, I must say the Green and the Pink pashminas are my all-time favourites!! ;)DSC_4487_webcandice-wren_pashmina_BLOG3_webhow-to-enter-banner
