La Vie En Rose Avery Gown in Champagne

HOW ARE YOU FINDING JOY DURING THESE STRANGE TIMES?

My home is my happy place so I’ve really embraced the crazy year that’s been 2020! I’ve kept a positive mindset and taken this year as an opportunity to slow down, learn new things, throw fancy dinner parties, clean my space and spend time making grand plans for the future.

WHAT IS YOUR FAVOURITE NEW LOOK FROM NEEDLE & THREAD?

This is almost impossible to answer! I am so drawn to the La Vie En Rose Avery Gown as it combines so many gorgeous features. The soft floral print is perfection, not to mention the mix of colours! Plus it’s got ruffles in all the right places and some dramatic sleeves. It definitely ticks a lot of boxes for me and makes me feel amazing every time I put it on!

WHAT’S YOUR TOP TIP FOR SELF-CARE?

I like to have a preventative approach, so I make sure I plan my weeks as much as I can! I’ll make sure I don’t have too much on my plate and schedule in time just for me. When things do get a little crazy, a nice walk with my fiancé makes me feel grounded as we can talk through how I’m feeling and put everything into perspective.

WHAT WILL BE YOUR FIRST VACATION POST LOCKDOWN?

I’m really excited to explore more of Australia! We’ve had plans to do so for a while now and considering we can’t go anywhere else it’s forcing us to take the trips that we always dreamt of. When borders open, we want to head to the west coast and do a big road trip! One day we’d love to have our own camper van and travel around the country in it whenever we get the chance. It’s a long term goal but it’s definitely on the cards now more than ever!

CONGRATULATIONS ON YOUR EXCITING ENGAGEMENT! WHAT IS YOUR TOP TIP FOR PLANNING A WEDDING DURING LOCKDOWN?

Communicate with your partner and set up wedding planning dates to keep it fun! It can really start to feel like a chore (especially when things are changing so often), so we’d do things like make a cheese platter and pour some wine, whilst we go through the to-do list.
