Giveaway - Free December Wallpaper!

Yay! Are you ready for December? I SO am! Can't wait for Christmas now, even more because I'm going back to France as usual for the holidays, but this time, I'm going with my bearded man :)

Because I wanted to create a wallpaper that combines Winter and Christmas, I decided I wouldn't use the typical Christmas colour palette and do a mix of illustrations that can represent a bit of both. Hope  they put you in a festive mood!

You can download the first one HERE, and the second one with the calendar HERE. Don't forget to update your phone's background with the mobile wallpaper HERE!

Portfolio Update #11 - Totoro Birthday Card

Totoroooo! Well, it was an obvious choice for our friend's little boy's second birthday to create a card with a smiley Totoro. After painting a massive Totoro mural in his bedroom when he was tiny, he seems to have developed some kind of fascination for this character. Apparently, he's watched the movie about a 100 times. I don't blame him, I absolutely love My Neighbour Totoro and I've always been a fan of Miyazaki's movies. Do I have to say that I really enjoyed working on it? I guess not :)

Wandering - A Walk in Newborough

Hey guys! Last weekend we took advantage of the great sunny (but cold!) weather we had and went for a two hour walk in Newborough. And well... It was bloody worth it!

When I look at these photos, they just remind me how lucky I am to live in this part of the world.

Pinterest addiction #8

Happy Sunday! I thought it was time for me to share a little bit of my Pinterest's inspiration :)

1. I've been looking at some bold illustrations lately and this one really caught my eyes
2. And I've also been searching for some cool patterns as inspiration for one of my next project (stay tuned!)
3. This design to me looks quite dfferent from what we usually see around at the moment, don't you think? Love the way the wine bottle has been used
4. I mean... BROWNIES! Makes me hungry all of a sudden!
5. Can't resist to some nice lettering, even more when it's gold ;)
6. This photo just remind me how much I would like to travel more...

Right, I'm off to bake a delicious chocolate/banana cake!

Wandering - Christmas Shopping in Liverpool

Hey guys! Yep, I know, it's almost that time of year! My bearded man and I had an extended weekend thanks to some time off, so we decided to get on with our Christmas shopping. And because Liverpool is quite ideal for it, we spent the day there and I couldn't resist taking loads of photos of the town with all these beautiful Christmas decorations!

We ended up quite exhausted but happy from this special time together (even though our bank accounts are not so happy...) Oh well, it's almost Christmas!

Lately on Instagram #7

Happy Friday everyone! Just a few hours away from the weekend :)
Well, I don't care much, I'm off today so I'm enjoying some relaxing time around the house before starting our Christmas shopping!

Lately, I made sure to walk every lunch time just to get some fresh air away from the office / I've been working on a little surprise for my friends' little boy, more about it soon! / How cute is my little pumpkin?! / Fatty feast at Harveys / A close-up of a little illustration I'm quite pleased with :) / One night going to my bearded man's parents, we were in awe at the colours of the sky / I don't think I could get bored of our Sunday walks in Conwy / Because I love everything historical, a visit to Rhuddlan Castle was just what I needed.

To check what I've been up to lately you can follow me on Instagram and Twitter!
