Aaaaannnnddd we are back! And, what, it’s been like five months since our last blog post?! Sorry we have been MEGA M.I.A. over here. It has been super intense as of late. But my freelance job has just finished up, uni is done and dusted (for now) and I’m on holidays! I really want to put more effort into the blog and I’m working on some pretty exciting changes and also getting back into the blog routine!
With that being said, Jenny and I want to share a few current items we are lusting over this month; dusty pinks, creams and olives, gold embellishments and a touch of grey to pull this sweet winter palette together :)
What a great month it has been so far! I’ve just gotten back into the routine of things (i.e. stopped being a potato couch watching trashy tv shows all day erryday) and I’m finally getting productive and doing things I’ve been wanting to do all holidays! I’ve gotten an amazing graphic design internship with Axel & Ash, a design duo creating beautiful books and journals about travel and life passions! I’ve had the opportunity to do some cool projects under their wing and it’s been really enjoyable so far :) Apart from that, Jenny & I have been working on some awesome stuff for Two Threaded Poppies and the stuff we have in stall… it’s insaneeeeee and we can’t wait to share them with you!
And of course, with the productivity, means more blog posts! So this month, we wanted to share some products we’ve been lusting over this February – rose gold everything! Clean, fresh whites. Mom jeans… well, denim in general; and sweet, feminine tones.
How is it February already? I feel like time is such a luxury these days… it’s always passing so freakin’ quickly. And it’s the last month of Summer? Wow. I know this post is a little late because trend reports are supposed to be out before or in the beginning of the season and not the end… So, sorry about that. But some trends that I’ve been noticing popping up lately are the ones drawn above! Yes, I’ve changed things up a little with this category on the blog. I wanted to show a little more of my artistic/drawing side and I thought this was the perfect way :)
This season… and transitioning into the next, it’s all about the lace-up front tops and dresses, skinny neck ties, white sneakers (particularly Adidas) and the combination of both blush and white together are Summer’s match made in heaven!
I can’t help but be cliché… but can you believe it’s already the new year? Last year felt like it was over within 2 seconds. To be honest, I haven’t given myself much time to prepare for 2016! I don’t have any New Year’s Resolutions or plans for the remaining few months of my uni holidays (probably would like to just stay creative, apply for some internships and create some awesome new content for the blog). But some things I do know… the things Jenny & I have been wanting this month!
We’re starting off the year with a wish list post (it’s been a while since we last did one… sorry). We’re loving neutral tones this month and simplistic accessories that finish off any outfit with subtlety. We’d love to know some things on your wish list this month… or perhaps some cool brands you’d like to tell us about? :)
Also, my Hong Kong Photo Diary will be uploaded to the blog very soon!

Hope you are all having a fabulous week so far! I’ll be updating you all on what motherhood has been like in my next post (mainly completely sleep deprived and I’m able to do this post thanks to some wonderful help that came in the last few days!), but in the meantime, I wanted to quickly share with you something fabulous that Jillian and I received in the mail recently! :D
Before I continue though, I wanted to have a quick chat about brand integrity. I know alot of you wonder, if Jillian and I just talk about products we get paid to talk about. The answer is NO. You can be assured, for those who have wondered and asked, we ONLY ever feature pieces that we stand by 100%. Which means, we will only ever share with you brands, accessories, and products that we LOVE completely. We are not into collaborations or features where we would never buy/pay money for or wear on our own accord. So you can relax and know that our posts are 100% genuine whether they are sponsored or not (most are not as we are just two excited sisters who have a passion for beauty and want to share it with the rest of you out there!), as we only ever partner with brands that we know you will LOVE as much as we do! Here at Two Threaded Poppies, we are completely about quality, and being genuine, real, and authentic!
Anyway, onto the stuff we got in the mail recently (ie. The watches pictured below) :D
As you all already may or may not have noticed, Jillian and I adore pieces that are timeless, classic, and beautiful. And if you have been paying attention to our instagram feed, you will know that even the time pieces we choose to wear have to fit under that umbrella. So you can imagine how over the moon we were to receive some of Olivia Burton’s watches from their new range! :D Now, from our instagram, you know I already own the Big Dial rose gold and tan leather piece, and Jillian already owns the Midi Dial in Rose Gold and White leather. Both purchased from Bijoux Collection Australia and since we shared the photos of those, alot of you went out to buy and find these pieces to join our Olivia Burton love which made us so happy as this beautiful boutique brand is so underrated! We are mindful of the many other popular fashion watch brands on the market these days, but Olivia Burton watches are so gorgeously feminine, vintage, and classic looking. They have pieces that range from the simple and minimalistic , to the more opulent kind with floral embellishments – ALL of which never get too over the top. Always remaining timeless and classic!
We’re such fans that owning a second piece each, has been a no brainer! Especially with the launch of their new range.
Thank you so much Bijoux for our beautiful new watches (and the cute surprise pearl earrings in our package! Totally unexpected!!) And to our readers, Bijoux offers $10 off your first purchase with them, so use that if you decide to get yourself an Olivia Burton piece too! I’m already eyeing the Power Blue and Rose Gold one, as well as the Black Dial and Gold if I could get my hands on another :P )
