And finally, a new blouse!  Navy with heart prints 😀  Love those love-hearts.

I plan to document my year by snapping some little pics here and there and then sharing them with you all!

Uni starts tomorrow and I feel nervous, excited, un-composed, and fully prepared yet unprepared for what lies ahead.  Here’s to the future!

P.S.  A bit of tune talk… a couple of favourite songs:  “Gravity” by Sara Bareilles, “Happy” by Pharrell Williams, “Brave” by Sara Bareilles, and I did like “Say Something”… until the radio totally overplayed it… 😐

Hi everyone,

Alrighty, here is the long awaited post of the vintage 50’s hens party that I told you all about. Now, I am so sorry this wasn’t on the Friday or Saturday, but it turns out, that my Easter weekend was a lot busier than I thought it would be. One thing I was busy with, was the new fashion photo shoot that we’ll be starting very soon. 🙂 I am really excited to bring it to you, as we have some new locations and outfits, and of course, our fantastic photographer has some great shots!

Anyway, about this post….
We held this hens party for a friend who’s getting married in a couple of months. We had a lot of fun setting it up in the morning, with bunting, vintage glasses, lemonade, jelly beans, lace, gold crepe paper, bunches of wildflowers, drapes of fabric, and homemade vases. We laid table cloths over all the tables, and placed doilies on each, with a vase of wildflowers, it looked so lovely! Have a look out for all of those items in the following pictures.

If you are interested, have a look at how I made the vases, it’s really simple, and I borrowed the idea off someone else who was decorating a wedding cheaply. All you do, is get some old glass jars, then you cover them with some nice paper, and tie it with some lace or ribbon. Whatever catches your fancy really.

Enjoy all the vintage outfits as well (we had to dress up in 1950’s style of dress)!

My good friend Ambley is wearing a lovely dress made by her amazing Mum, who is also making the bridesmaids dresses for this wedding I might add 🙂

This is the skirt folks, the one that I made with some help from Mum, I’m happy with how it turned out! 🙂 I am very inspired to start sewing again. It was actually rather simple, I think you girls should try your hand at some sewing, it’s very rewarding and satisfying wearing your own handiwork.

Lydia is a great organiser, so this was all right up her alley. I think we all did an amazing job combined, it was loads of fun, and I have been wanting to do something like this for a long time.

Everyone had to bring some nice cupcakes or a sweet thing. We all drank tea from some lovely floral teacups, and had a fabulous time!

P.S. I just want to thank all of our readers for being dedicated and looking at all of our posts. Without you, we wouldn’t continue, so thank you very much, you are helping us do something that we really love! We appreciate it!

And have a cup of tea!

Hi everyone,

We did it!  We’re on Lookbook.

I went ahead and signed up for a Lookbook account. It was dead easy, and anyone out there who likes to snap pictures of themselves every now and again, should go and post them on Lookbook.  You can fan other peoples looks, which is similar to subscribing, and you can also hype their looks, which is similar to liking them or sharing them.

Have a look at Creative Touch’s Lookbook here or you can click on the widget at the side.

We’re hoping that a whole load of new people will come and have a look at our blog and the variey of ‘looks’ that we post about here.

Another exciting thing to announce is the subject of our next post.  We had a 50’s kitchen tea hens party recently, for an engaged friend of ours, and everything was decorated amazingly.  We had floral fabric bunting, lace doilies, vintage flower arrangements and more, but I won’t spoil the post.  We will deliver that to you on Friday or Saturday.

One more piece of news.  We will be haivng another fashin photo shoot on Saturday and Lydia is going to be working hard to come up with some outfits that are really stylish.  We aim to give a little bit of the fashion magazine ‘out there’ feel, as well as some wearable outfits as well. Hope you enjoy!

With Lydia’s up and coming semester break I will try my best to convince Lydia to be a model for some hair tutorials and I’ll be a model for some eye makeup looks that we’ll post on here.

Looking forward to it, and I hope you are too,

Esther
