The Blogcademy 2014 – Wink Styles Pt 1

One of the things I was most grateful for in 2014 was Wink getting the opportunity to style such amazing events as The Blogcademy. The three headmistresses Gala Darling, Kat Williams and Shauna Haider were so supportive and kind in letting me go mad and decorate up the space at Biz Dojo in Auckland Central.

In addition to that – I went to the Blogcademy too!! I couldn’t attend last year as I had another event pre-arranged and I was so sad. This year I blocked out the weekend on my calendar. I’ll be doing a full roundup of things I learned shortly – it was so inspirational.

I wanted to show you some of the items I created and customised for The Blogcademy Auckland 2014 and these beautiful photos from Steph at Bubblerock make it so easy.

I created a custom backdrop for all the fun photos from the weekend, tassles for the chairs, a couple of banners plus the very cute Polaroid banner with Mini Mylar balloons. I had such fun making this all – it was a joy to make and create and I was so happy to be there to see the class see it all for the first time too.

Holiday parties


This is my last post before Christmas – I can’t even believe I’m saying that! This year has been a whirlwind. And what better way to finish the year with a little holiday party?!

I love the big, bold inspiration in this holiday party from 100 Layer Cake.
