07.28.14Anneliese is Sizzling

I am super excited to have Anneliese from the Aesthetic Nest here today! Anneliese’s creations are always stunning no mater what medium they come in. Birthday parties, crocheting, sewing & pattern creating. You name it Anneliese does it and does it WELL.  She has a gorgeously curated selection of patterns in her shop HERE and my personal favorite birthday party post is HERE. I was thrilled when she agreed to participate in our sizzling Paris series and of course as always she knocked it out of the park. Here is a little sneak peak.

07.24.14Sewing Rabbit Sizzling

I am so excited to share Jessica’s, of the epic blog ME Sew Crazy, DARLING outfit inspired by Paris. Jessica is incredible. That’s all there is too it. How she juggle all her amazing projects (her blog that has something new and amazing every single day) the eye candy online magazine STYLO (which I sit on pins and needles for every issue) and her pattern club. Seriously, just typing all those made me tired ha! And what really floors me is the quality of all these projects are off the charts. She doesn’t skimp anywhere to make all these things happen she goes full force on everything she touches and today is no exception.  Here is a little sneak peak:

You have to hop over HERE to Me Sew Crazy to see all the darling pictures of her not so little girl surrounded by water lilies and to read some really fun thought on parenting (I may have teared up). Thank you so so much Jessica for lending us your incredible talent!! Your the best!

07.11.14A Giveaway with Freshly PIcked

I am beyond excited about today’s giveaway! Freshly Picked Moccasins sent Evie these adorable Rose Gold mocs to try bashing about Paris in. I thought they picked the perfect color for Paris and knew we had to head to our favorite carousel for a La Vie En Rose themed photo shoot.


I have to be honest I was skeptical as to how well the mocs would hold up walking all over Paris, on the metro and being dragged through gravel at Tuilleries but I was very pleasantly surprised at how well they have held up!



The tops still look pristine even after loads of wears while the bottoms show a slight outline of the bottom of her foot which I actually think is pretty cute ha!


Of course Evie adores them and has dubbed them her “comfy shoes”.



Chloe was pretty  jealous and would sneak into the closet and get them out and wear them around when Evie was at school.


^^^^Note Chloe’s sobbing face strategically hidden behind the giant cotton candy^^^



Which brings me to one of the things I love most about them, even Chloe who is two can get them on in seconds. Maybe it is just me. Maybe it is because I cannot stand my head being used to help them balance every time one of my cuties puts on their shoes, but all of them being able to put their shoes on independently is kind of a mini miracle. And with how durable they are they will absolutely be handed down to Chloe.


If you have had your eye on some Freshly PIcked‘s today you could win a pair! Freshly Picked is giving away a pair of your choosing to one SINML reader. ANY PAIR YOU WANT! How awesome is that?!?! The giveaway opens today and ends the 17th and is open to US residents only. All you need to do is like FP HERE and SINML HERE, or if you already “like” us on FB follow FP on instagram HERE and SINML HERE. Then go over to Freshly Picked HERE pick your pairs of mocs and leave a comment telling me if you went the FB route or the IG route, then tell me which pair you would pick and where your cutie would wear them. For example I am coveting the Platinum Mocs for Chloe

And those just scream out for a photo shoot at Versailles to me! Especially if she brings as much attitude to the shoot as Evie did ha! 2014-07-01_0010

Thank you Freshly Picked for Evie’s fav pair of shoes and for being so generous! Best of luck!



07.01.14In The Summer When It Sizzles

Our time in Paris is coming to a close. Our departure date was moved WAY up due to a very unfortunate event that happened earlier this week. Many of you have also commented asking about the absence of Wild Wandering. For the time being we have made our personal blog private until we decide how to move forward. Thanks for all your support in that area! To help alleviate the stress of moving and trying to keep the blog semi active during this HUGE transition, I called upon some of the super talented ladies in this lovely sewing world and asked if they would create something inspired by Paris in the summer, when it is sizzling.
