Feature Friday - Miss Paperie

Miss Paperie is a Melbourne based stationary designer. 

All items are one of a kind, handmade pieces and beautifully packaged.

Mini Spring Geometrics notecards - $6.00 pack of six


I discovered Miss Paperie through instagram and was instantly drawn to her creations.
I have a love for geometrics anyway, but these combined with cute colour schemes and a bit of glitter here and there made me fall in love!

 Naturally Neon cards - $4 each

 Geometric Arrow magnets - $6.50 set of six

 Creative Cuts notepad - $10.00


 Spring Geometric notepad - $5.50

The Spring Geometric notepad is a personal favourite of mine. I love the soft, pastel colours and the shimmer of the glitter paper. 
Knowing that each piece is unique makes me want one so much more too, something just for me!
They would make excellent gifts for loved ones for this reason too, everyone loves having a bespoke item. 

Xmas Geometric cards - $4.00 each

These Xmas Geometric cards have to be my ultimate favourite though! 
They use more traditional Christmas colours but  have such a playful and exciting feel for the festive season with how innovative and interesting each individual design is.

Feature Friday - Rianna Phillips

Yesterday morning, I received a very exciting parcel in the post and simply HAD to share its contents with you all today, using Feature Friday this week to show the talented designer behind it!
Rianna Phillips is a designer specializing in digitally printed fashion accessories.



Rianna studied Textile Design for Fashion at Manchester School of Art, which is where she discovered her talent for creating exquisite digitally printed designs.
I feel that the combination of Rianna’s love for accessories and digital print is obvious throughout all of her products; creating stunning statement pieces with the use of bold colours and experimental patterns.



Launching her own label in 2011, Rianna’s career has gone from strength to strength, going on to sell her products worldwide!
To be bang on trend and stand out from the crowd, be sure to visit her website and etsy stores now:



I am so happy that I am now the very proud owner of the Limited Edition Varro digitally printed portfolio clutch bag!!



Rianna launched a giveaway alongside BusinessBoom over twitter last month and I was the lucky winner!!
The bag is definitely going to get me noticed on an evening out! The quality is fantastic too; I would most definitely recommend Rianna’s products, they would make fantastic gifts.
