GONE UNTIL NOVEMBER





It's been such a long time since I wrote anything on here and my goodness I've missed it dearly. A lot has happened- the biggest thing being Matthew and I got married. I'll write a more in depth piece about this and all of the lovely pictures we can treasure by our amazingly talented and total babe of a photographer Chloe Lee.

Currently I'm very much looking forward to Christmas since I have been so sick lately but things happen for a reason! Halloween and bonfire night seemed to have whizzed by that they have disappeared into the distance like a popping, glittering firework. The dark nights have arrived and bringing with them the opportunity to light every pretty candle in the house, filling each room with the sweets scents of Christmas spice, pumpkin, vanilla and apple.

We have been on a few mini adventures since tying the knot, so I will be sharing some little snaps of those lovely memories we have been making as husband and wife. It makes me long for next summer when I can feel the bubbling salty waves of the sea on my toes, the warmth of late summer sun on my back and the nostalgic aroma of sugary candy floss, hot sugared donuts, fish and chips & fizzing dandelion and burdock in clinking glass bottles.

I'm hoping to write at least weekly from now onwards about daily things, thoughts, musings, ideas, playlists, snaps, recipes etc... Let me know if there's anything in particular you would like me to write about.

Happy November, darlings

XO Natasha

GAME OF THRONES



Well, hello lovely people! It's actually November now! Can you believe it?! The time has flown by this year! This week is for fireworks and toffee apples, wrapping up warm and going for crisp autumnal walks in woodland.

I've been meaning to finish this illustration for some time and I really wanted to add it to the finished pile and get it made into a print. I will be making this into an illustrated tee as well it's not yet in my etsy shop as one but if you'd like this illustration on a tee they are £15 plus P&P just email me velvetwolves@live.com & I can send you an invoice.

Hope everyone is having a lovely week! I'm almost to the point where I'm thinking about pressing play on my epic christmas music playlist but I'm trying to hold back, why?!!! 

Really looking forward to having a little stall at the Crafty Fox market on Sunday 7th December at the Dogstar in Brixton, London. It will be my first ever so please pop down and say hello, I'd love to meet you & I'll be selling mini zines, prints & tees too! <3>

FILM & TV THURSDAYS | POMPEII


I got Pompeii on blu ray as one of my birthday gifts from Matt, it stemmed back from me being so desperate to see it at the cinema but we never got round to it. Being the sweet guy that he is he remembered, obvs, and there it was all wrapped up the day I turned twenty six. 

So we got our living room set up like a mini cinema and watched the epic movie in all its HD glory. It was pretty f**king epic as well, I probably would have left the cinema haha! I'm not gonna say too much but it's centered around a sweet love story (not extremely soppy!) and the natural disaster that happened. You seriously need this in your life!

PART OF YOUR WORLD | ILLUSTRATED WEDDINGS

It's Tuesday and in my mind that means weddings, I've got weddings on my mind pretty much 24/7 as Matt and I are edging ever closer to getting married and it's giving me butterflies!

I had to share this illustration I did for the darling Megan of Briar Rose blog and her lovely husband, they are like Ariel and Eric and had such a magical wedding which is featured on her beautiful blog! It's like a slice of Disney loveliness and I wanted this illustration to reflect all those whimisical elements and pretty pastel colours! Megan was so kind and lovely about the illustration, she is a total sweetheart!

We actually have the same wedding photographer and I'm so looking forward to Chloe being there on our wedding day to capture all those special moments! Definitely check out Chloe's ahhhmazing portfolio and Megan's super gorge blog, her hair and outfits are sooo dreamy!

I'm available for commissions so if you'd like a price list or a more bespoke quote just send me an email velvetwolves@live.com or message me on my website. I've had questions about anything from a wedding portrait to bridesmaid t shirts (hell yeah!) I'd love to hear from you!

FILM & TV THURSDAYS | HOMELAND

.




This month and last actually we've been hooked on Homeland, Danes & Lewis are the best! It's the perfect box set to start the Autumn with and makes me wish I was super clever, able to drive flashy cars and had swishy golden locks like Claire Danes. If you haven't started this epic series, start from season one and fuel up on water and your favourite snack. It's addictive.
