Birthday Banner: Happy Birthday Matthew

Birthday Banner I vena-esperanza.com

I made this birthday banner to celebrate the birthday party of the 5-years old boy. The banner is full of swing! Bright colours and stars are everywhere.. I depicted an illustration of sky with some playful elements such as: clouds, stars, and a balloon. I was quite pleased how the banner turned out- the rainbow typography on the soft clouds, scatter stars, and an adorable balloon with the giant number 5 on it.

A day in Handpicked Media

It’s always fun to work out of office- break a routine, get a new excitement, meet new people, and of course being a part of a cool and fabulous event! This time I report as a documentation crew for Anna Lou of London in Handpicked Media, London Fashion Week.

Forecast said it will be raining all day, but it won’t lower down my spirit. Early in the morning, I head to One Aldwych Hotel in Charing Cross to set up our personalised bespoke display. We’ve spent an hour to arrange two tables with our bespoke collection and new luxe collection. They all are looking shimmering and beautiful!

The bloggers will come soon as I am getting ready and dress myself with some Anna Lou jewellery. Today I am wearing ‘LOVE’ luxury tax necklace on top of my navy dress with white collar, add a touch of white from studded wrap leather bracelet and stackable engraved silver ring.

A gift for Paris lover

When it comes to pick the perfect birthday gift for your close friend or family, bespoke gift is the best choice. It shows that you are truly care about them. But with so many possibilities, knowing which gift can make them happy can be bit tricky. I am not an expert of this, but my experience might help you. To start, asking yourself these questions:

Does she/he have hobbies or particular interest?

What things she/he loves?

Combine these two questions will lead you into a brilliant idea what gift to give her/his in special occasion. This is your best shot. For example: she loves traveling and she is a big fan of anything vintage and british. Then, an union jack print on a vintage leather suitcase will surprise her lots!

Wanna win her/his heart? Add something personalised. Many shops sell leather bags that offer to engrave initial of your name or if you can’t find any, you still have a hope. In notonthehighstreet, you could find many options for personalised items from different sellers. This case you might want to order a leather travel tag engraved an initial of your loved one or even a chosen word that memorable for both of you. This absolutely will blow her/his mind!

Speaking of devils, I’ve got my best friend’s birthday coming up. She is paris lover, loves anything about Eiffel Tower and her favorite colour is blue. Last time she gave me name necklace as a farewell gift while I am going to UK. So, when spotted this beautiful initial necklace with eiffel charm. I know it’s perfect gift for her.
