Thankful To Be

2 Dec 2014

I have nothing else to say but Thank You! It's my favourite time of the year and definitely the season when I feel very blessed and thankful about everything that has been happened for the year so far. It's a busy busy year but nevertheless very happy busy. With Ruffles & Bells and the cafe keeping my hubby and I fully occupied, its a year that I have truly grown to know myself and who I want to be. 

It's that one thing that I've learned being in the industry and growing the business - it's to never forget to be thankful. No matter it's the dead days or the happy days, you have to stop for a second, step back, breathe deeply and look at how far you've gone. Remember the people you've met on the way  and remember to give back. Realise that at the end of each day, your heart is overflowing with so much that you just have to share it to the world.  

Having a business is a great way to know yourself better. You'll experience the mood swings and test your strengths and feel the hate and the love that makes this world as amazing as it is. It is just a freakin' amazing door after door of discovery! Whatever you do, no matter how cliche this is, love it! Fall in love with again and again just like a real love relationship. 

So again, this birthday I made sure to shout it to the heavens and whisper a thankful prayer to Him for testing my faith, my husband for being my strength, my family for being my support and critic, my friends for being my inspiration. Thank you to those who have pushed me to the limit, made me scared to say yes, made me make bigger dreams (without knowing it), shown me a bigger world and granted me with a gift that no money can buy. A big hug and kisses to all of you!

Thank you for making this such an awesome year everyone! 

We are Radically Excited!

27 Nov 2014

It's amazing how something that started small can turn into a worldwide movement! And that's how this SOLD OUT event we're part of started off: from Gala Darling's bedroom! Can you believe that?

After working for the Blogcademy girls in their London event, we are thrilled to be working with The Event Head again for Gala's Radical Self Love soiree here in Melbourne!

Totally jumping with excitement with all the pop of color we're planning for this!

Spring has sprung

23 Oct 2014

And so has our new logo! It's finally spring (a hot one definitely!) but we still love the new breeze and warm sun calling us out to get to the beach. Sooo it is the perfect timing for us to team up with our fave Ruwi from Type Styled to come up with a new look for Ruffles & Bells.

Still keeping that soft and pretty look that we're known for, Ruwi was so amazing to capture our essence in our new modern a mood board to match!

I'd love to know what you guys think! I hope you like it as much as we do! ;)

A Wash With Sunshine - on Style Me Pretty

16 Oct 2014

Hi lovelies! It has been a while! And yes how perfect is that title with this terrible cold weather during Spring!
I had to take a break from all the craziness of wedding season and renovation just so I can share this with you! We are featured again on Style Me Pretty and this is such a treat!

This shoot has been one of my faves so far and it's that freshness and light that got me! There's indeed plenty of inspiration to take away from this shoot so I'll leave you with this snippets from Style Me Pretty. Grab a cuppa or tea and make sure to take a few minutes to indulge in all that sunshine!

A Week To Remember - 26 Sep 2014

26 Sep 2014

Hi again lovelies! I know I've been much quiet here on the blog but that's because I am brewing (literally) something big and exciting!
First of all! Ruffles & Bells is going to be moving from our home office to it's own studio! We're starting some renovations for the studio that'll be a pretty space for brides to come in and actually plan their big day, have a nice cup of tea with us and chat about all vendors that we've been so lucky to work with.

It is such a dream for me to have this space, not just to showcase all our props and styling but because I feel for all the brides out there who have to travel to so many places to meet with all their vendors. It would be much easier to have one place all together and of course, we can do all the styling for you!

And on top of that, it'll be a cafe as well! And yes, I am one of the baristas ;)
It's a place for people to have coffee, good food and just chill! We've got some great people coming on board with us and making this new dream get bigger than ever!

I will be announcing the address and some sneak peeks soon! Sorry for getting you all excited but I promise it won't be long before I announce the address. I am definitely hoping to see you here!!! Drop by and say hi lovelies!

PS: I want to use this post to thank everyone who have helped me and my hubby to realise this dream and for the continuous support! Big hugs going to you for all the love!

Catch up soon!
For the meantime, have an awesome Friday!
