Anna & Boy

Waking up to a ray of sunshine is all it takes to brighten up anyones day! These cold winter days are slowly ending and Summer is just around the corner. I can't wait to dip my foot in the sand and enjoy the beaches with family and friends! In saying so, I still need to find the perfect pair of swimmers! I was browsing online and came across designs by Anna & Boy.

Anna & Boy had been established by two editorial members from Vogue Australia when they found a gap in the market for "inspiring swimwear."

There line is culminated with bright colours that are set to shine this Summer. Inspired by their childhood beach lifestyle, they have created pieces that represent the new cool with prints, bold colours and strong designs. I absolutely love them! To check out more of Anna & Boy, click HERE

I am absolutely in love with this one piece!

New Beginnings

Its been an unfortunate while since my last post, but at the same time it feels like a new start! I had been going through a dark time in my life over the last couple of months. I let my emotions and feelings get to me and for a good while, I was trapped in a shell, trying to find my way out.

There were moments where I would draft a blog post and leave them drafted, only because I was writing for the sake of writing, not for the sake of passion, love and involvement. I believe topics should be written from inspiration and admiration, most importantly, things should be written solely from the heart. During the dark pause I had experienced, I lost that sense of passion. I had no urge to explore the world, nor did I have the motivation to photograph and write. I struggled to get up, I struggled to deliver and I struggled to focus. I lost touch of the world.

In the end all I needed was time. Time to be cured, time to learn, time to grow up and time to be the aspiring person I once was. This meant a pause on my blog and a pause in design and photography. I had such a profound support from some of the readers, who had contacted me to ensure I was on track. I have learnt alot during this pause and now I feel stronger than I originally was. I got my design mojo back and will be snapping away all over again! I have re-experimented with different pieces and with Spring just around the corner, I believe Plumpcheriie is back onto a good start!
