One of my most favourite wedding invitations I have done so far! The wedding was in Tulum and the beautiful couple were very much involved in all of the art design- making it purely unique and depicts their personalities and love perfectly. The history of printing wedding invitations is a fairly modern practice. Before the Gutenberg Press (we're talking 1447) wedding guests got their invites via town-crier. This tradition of an "oral invite" remained the norm for most common people until the 1600's. Unless of course you were apart of the aristocracy who often commissioned monks taking advantage of their mastery in calligraphy. It was not until the Victorian age that the idea of an engraved wedding invitation was introduced. Yet then there was that unreliable postal system- which meant they had to be hand-delivered. Which is where the double-envelope came in handy so that the invite was not ruined during its route via horseback- where upon the butler would receive it, toss the dirty envelope and present the immaculate copy to the recipient. Commercial printing in the 1950's created an affordable option for all and is still commonly used to announce the nuptials of love birds today. I still wish we used that silver tray option?! Jeeves is that you??? 🛎🎩

Flashback Friday with the man himself Karl  Lagerfeld. His strive to never stop working and always seeking change is more than inspiring. I will be forever grateful meeting such an icon and legend. Who needs normal anyway?! "What I love best in life is new starts." - Karl Lagerfeld ⚡️

When Karl Lagerfeld was growing up he wanted to be an illustrator. He claims that while he is sketching he never looks at his watch. "I've only wanted paper and beautiful colors. It was my dream, and still is my dream. And books. They're all I need and the rest I could do without." - Karl Lagerfeld 🖊

Wes Anderson's 'Moonrise Kingdom' was co-written by Roman Coppola. Apparently the bullhorn Mrs. Bishop, played by Frances McDormand, uses to communicate with her family was inspired by Roman's Coppola's mother- Eleanor Coppola. There is a 'Charlie Brown' reference in each of Wes Anderson's films, hence the dog's name, Snoopy. When Sam is surrounded by scouts in the Lightning Field he shouts "On this spot, I will fight no more, forever!", which were originally said by Chief Joseph of the Nez Perce tribe in his 'Surrender Speech' back in 1877. Chief Joseph tried to lead his tribe to Canada to escape the U.S. Army- they were 40 miles away when he made his speech. 🌙

Having a Moonrise Kingdom kind of Saturday. Suzy Bishop's house 'Summer's End' on New Penzance Island is actually a former lighthouse in Jamestown, RI. The inspiration for the inside of the house was based on "the house on the rock" called Clingstone located on an island in the Narragansett Bay. All of Suzy's books are creations of Wes Anderson and he had different designers construct each cover. Wes even wrote little stories in each book. 🌙

Happy Earth Day! Here are five easy tips that we can all do to make a difference protecting Mother Earth. 1. Turn off lights when you leave a room. 2. Take public transportation, carpool or ride a bike. 3. Eat locally sourced foods and focus on fruits and veggies. 4. Recycle and reuse as often as possible. 5. BYOB- bring your own bag when shopping. The world is yours so let's all try and save it. Shout out to @lacebetch for the inspiration. 🌍💕

Happy 91st Birthday to Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II!! "I know of no single formula for success. But over the years I have observed that some attributes of leadership are universal and are often about finding ways of encouraging people to combine their efforts, their talents, their insights, their enthusiasm and their inspiration to work together." - Queen Elizabeth II 🇬🇧

"We shall never surrender." - Winston Churchill. I have always been very proud of my British heritage and my heart goes out to all of the victims and families from Wednesday's attack. There is nothing more British than the stoic mentality of never, never giving in and carrying on. 🇬🇧

Being as it is rather snowy in the NYC area with snow storm Stella, figured sipping a cocktail from a coconut might warm us all up. The coconut originated from India and Southeast Asia and being that it is a nut that can float, was able to make it's way solo across hemispheres leading Palm Trees to now grow on every tropical coastline in the world. Historians also credit seafaring Arab traders for bringing the fruit from India to East Africa and then later to the Europeans- 2,000 years later the Arabic word for coconut still translates to "walnut of India". It was not until the early 16th century that the more common name Coconut came to use. Portuguese explorer, Vasco da Gama, referred to the nut as a "coco-nut" because it resembled a "cocuruto" which means skull- the three dots mimicking two eyes and a mouth and the fibers resembling hair. 🌴💀

Happy International Women's Day! The pomegranate is believed to have originally grown in the Middle East in as early as 1000 BC and often takes on female symbolism in many different cultures. During Ancient Greece, the pomegranate stood for both birth and death and is connected to the earth goddess, Rhea and even today is symbol for fertility. In the Bible the pomegranate is thought to actually be the forbidden fruit in the Garden of Eden. In Hindu the red fruit is also associated with virility and is found with Bhoomdevi an earth goddess and also refers to a woman's mind. Pomegranates were even found in the female Pharaoh's tomb, Hatsheput. I feel so very fortunate to honor all of the strong women in my life now, in the past and in the future. 💕

My most favourite part about illustrating is hearing positive feedback from clients! In this case, the couple wanted very specific details to be included. Blue crabs as the bride is from Maryland, hydrangeas to represent the New England summer wedding and even wanted to include the swans that live by the grooms home in Rhode Island. This Save the Date is completely unique and embodies not only the couple but their wedding to be. I wish you the very best Lily and Tim!! 💕

Sea Urchins used to be known as sea hedgehogs and one can see why, what with their round, spiny shells. Most species live to around 30 years old yet the Red Sea Urchin has one of the longest lifespans on earth and reaches up to 200 years old. These little creatures are one of the few invertebrates that share more genes with us than earthworms and fruit flies. They also have very strong immune systems which makes scientists very interested in researching how their DNA can help humans. 🔬

Red Coral, Noble Coral or Corallium rubrum has been used as some form of decoration since the the beginning of man. Bits of coral and amber were used as currency by the Paleolithic man in 8000 BCE. One could call coral jewelry timeless, as It remains just as fashionable today as it was when the Ancient Egyptians worn it during the reign of Ptolemy in 305 BC to the late 1800's when the Victorians carved coral cameos. It apparently symbolizes devotion and can be worn as a talisman to ward off bad luck and provides protection. This seems to be rather ironic as it is now the coral reefs that need protection from us. 📿

Mexican Worry Dolls or Muñeca Quitapena. The legend of the worry doll dates back to a Mayan princess named Lxmucane who received an extraordinary gift from the sun god which made her able to solve anything a person could worry about ever. Often they are given to children who then whisper their concerns to the doll and place them under their pillow to quite literally sleep their worries away. Seems as if everyone needs a worry doll sometimes. 🔮
