FOR THE LOVE OF BLOGGING

I recently attended the Blog Society‘s workshop, Embracing The Art of Digital Storytelling, launched as part of this year’s Vivid Festival and held at the MCA.

It was really inspiring to hear what blogging meant to such a diverse group of creative minds. I loved hearing how Jaclyn Carlson’s Little Paper Trees was the journal that she never got around to starting, with a focus on ‘finding beauty in the every day’. Vivian Mansour’s, Ish and Chi was borne of very personal, life changing events; buying a home and decorating her first baby’s nursery. (I also love the inspiration behind the name Ish and Chi… short for fish and chips)!

Blog Manifesto

It made me think about our reasons for blogging here at Noah & Willow; a tool to help document our styling journey, a way to express our passion and creativity, share what inspires us, and hopefully to inspire others.

I’m so grateful to have had the opportunity to connect, collaborate and share with local bloggers, and am totally inspired to get my blog on a lot more frequently!

A special thank you to Natalie Hayllar of Eat Read Love, who had such fantastic social media advice and a blog that I’ve loved for the longest time. And Milton Gan, who broke it down to the very basics in photography and for just being an amazing inspiration artistically.

Below are just a couple of my photography attempts from the day:

Confetti Fair. Pretty much the ultimate party planning fair.

We were so excited to be a part of it, and who wouldn’t be with all of the things we love under the one roof? Pretty florals, delicious treats, styling inspiration…

Here were the stalls that made the top of our list;

But my personal fave of the day; a soulful performer who was belting out Nat King Cole tunes. A man after my own heart.
