Top 5 Summer Drink Recipes We Want To Try!

While it’s been a May of funny weather (ok though, when isn’t May filled with funny weather?!), summer is almost here. We can feel it in our bones and our hearts – we’ve got our maxi dresses and sunglasses and wide brim hats ready to become our daily wardrobe staples! One of our favourite parts about summer is relaxing with a cool drink on a hot patio – such an idyllic way to spend an afternoon, right? But while we love a good white wine spritzer as much as the next gal, it’s always fun to try new things! So here’s a round up of 5 summer drink recipes we want to try (sooner rather than later!) – click on the images to check out the recipes!

Blueberry Mojitos Because blueberries are a super food and it’s important that we get more of them in our diet.

Branding Your Wedding – Custom Wedding Stationery from The Social Page

Custom is a bride’s favourite word, isn’t it? Custom designs, custom decor and of course, custom stationery.

What makes custom stationery from The Social Page so unique is we go beyond matching papers, colours, and fonts – we design custom brands for couples getting married. A wedding brand can take on many different forms, such as monograms, text, or embellishments that can be used on Save The Dates, Invitations, Day of Stationery and Thank You cards. From classic sophistication to rustic floral to contemporary bohemians, your custom branding will set the tone for your wedding right from the start. Custom branding will appear on envelopes, note cards, escort cards, menus, aisle runners, ice sculptures, lighting designs – the branding we’ll help you create will help define the theme of your wedding.

Steph and Jeff

All our wedding branded is designed in collaboration with our couples, to ensure your vision is met and your personality is reflected through your stationery. With a passion for paper, artistic flare and industry knowledge, your wedding branding will be top of the line.

5 Reasons We Love Adult Colouring Books (Now In The Shop!)

12376869_10154259592004672_959178651383941095_n

If you haven’t jumped on the adult colouring book craze yet, what’s stopping you?? While it might have seemed like a kitchy fad when these books hit the scene last year, adult colouring books have some crazy fun benefits that you might not have considered.

  1. Relaxing: getting your colour on is like watching reality TV – zoning out is easy and takes  your mind off things! So turn the tube off, put on your favourite CD and let your mind wander
  2. Creative: the perfect creative outlet for those who like to stay in the lines and those who don’t, these are a beautiful way to express yourself and your mood
  3. Simple: these books aren’t out to trick you – they’re just out to make you feel proud of your hard work!
  4. Fun: whether you pull yours out when your kids pull theirs out, or you and your besties go sit in the park and colour the afternoon away, adult colouring books are great for social fun and for individual fun
  5. Pressure Free: there’s no deadline to finish it. You can pick it up and put it down whenever you like. There’s no one grading your work. There’s no on12439361_10154259592014672_3154961447162613271_ne judging your colours. Adult colouring books are a beautiful, pressure free activity!
