(Top - Finders Keepers; cape - Friend of Mine; skirt - Michael Lo Sordo; tiger and rose quartz rings and royal blue necklace - gifted by PREE BRULEE; rose butterfly ring - Thai markets; clutch - Dancing at Dusk) 

Photos by the one and only Love Yaz.

This has to be one of my favourite blogging posts to date as it involves two loves of my blogging life. The first needs no introduction - Yazzi, of Love Yaz, has been a pervasive influence since my blog's inception, responsible for imbuing so many of my images with transcendent beauty. Whenever she is behind the lens, she somehow makes me radiate with this natural golden light (trust me, one does not simply wake up in such a state) ... darling Yazzi, I love you and thank you for being such an integral force in my little blog's evolution. <3 

The second love is Pree Brulee, a company I have not yet had the pleasure of formally introducing my dear readers to. As a blogger, it is indeed a rare moment when you feel completely aesthetically in sync with a company's style ethos but when you do, there is an inexplicable synergistic magic that can make even the most cynical believe in fashion fate. As if this weren't enough, Pree - the company's genius founder - is one of the loveliest people I have met in the fashion industry and darling, I cannot wait to see what exciting things are in store for your beautiful company! <3 My dear readers, if you have not already had a peruse of their glittery array of jewels, you must do so now! You may thank me later. 

Much love, Mandy. xx

  4. I seriously love coming here, because I not only find beauty and art, but this completely indulgent passion and enthusiasm that I just can't find elsewhere.

    You are SO humble and SO gracious and complimentary - I honestly can't believe it. People who have as much success and as many reasons to brag as you AND who simultaneously have such humility are so hard to find. Always giving credit where it is due, and always singing the praises of others.

    All that aside, these pictures are RADIANT. the colors blow me away, and I'm loving the way the blue pop of the necklace looks against the flowers.
    Also ADORE the little square images in the middle. Great great editing.

  45. I believe it would be any girls dream to be photographed by Yazzi. Such a talent, and even though I always love your photos and there couldn't be a bad frame of you - her photos of you are the most beautiful ones to my eye. ^^ I'd probably had a heart attack if ever got a chance to work with her or anyone as talented.

    About this photo shoot and the look specifically, I truly love how your skirt matches with the flowers. And your new jewelry is absolutely precious, that ring is so cute and fierce, rawr ! I'm already eyeing some of Pree's items, or should I say drooling after them.. Already spotted some really pretty quarz-necklaces, I'm amazed.

    x I hope your weekend was filled with joy

  65. extraordinary :') these pictures are sooo gorgeous and I love the floral backdrop! I think Gary Pepper Vintage did a photoshoot recently amongst similar flowers and the photos look stunning as well. I need to find such flowers and pose amongst them although I will probably look way short of amazing as you and GPV do! and the skirt is just INCREDIBLE...I love the digital floral print and you matched it perfectly with the background :):)
