Piper and the little pictures

#me
Eeek, whenever I’m asked about myself I seem to stubble but ask me about my kiddies and ill tell you more then you ever asked! Haha. Well, I am 24 years old (really more like 25 but lets go with 24) I live 6 hours from my family and we are an army family. I have my husband Dave + my 2 babes - Piper and Spence; Piper resembles a puppy but is 100% human, a cat + 2 birds. I colllect mugs. I went on bandcamps as a kid. I don’t much care for sugary foods. I’ve never left Australia (hmm although have been to Tassie twice). I think I am hilarious. I am scared of birds (yeah, I know.... -_- ) I am very talented when it comes to killing plants. I find walls are attracted to jumping out at me + I just LOVE to take photos, must keep all the memories!!!

#love
My bebes Piper + Spence, I just absolutely adore every second with them, I cannot fathom how I ever did get so lucky! My family; this is a big one for me, moving away with the army really gave me a good kick as to what’s important. And for me, that’s 100% family, I love them so much. My sewing machine, I love to create things, particularly things I can give to people in hope that they will love it!!

#bestoftheday
Started my morning trying to get my eyes to open before they were willing while my Spencer slobbered his kisses all over my cheeks, spent way to much $$ in Coles, mostly on fruit I likely wont eat because I made a spontaneous (in the fruit section) decision to eat healthier haha. Folded some washing, took some not-so-pretty pictures, moved some stuff, took some pretty pictures, had about 3863463 cups of tea + watched the bachelorette, (that ass dude, yes please!!) + now currently sneaking a cuddle from my littles while I answer these yummy questions.

#inspo
Hmm… I guess Insta in general is inspo in itself. I love seeing beautiful products in store pictures and just imagining where I could put them/how I could style them. I try to do things a little bit different to the Insta trends. I actually really like to take most of my pictures whilst hanging out with my bebes - I try to take candid shots of Spence + styled shelfies and flatlays are guaranteed to have been placed (moved -_-) somewhat by Spence, Piper and even the baby daddy- who now thinks hes an Instahusband haha! I guess what I am trying to say is they are my main inspo!! For me it’s more about the fun of doing it with them then anything else.

#food
Licorice. All of it. Give it to me. But only if its black. None of this sweet flavoured crap ha ha.

Instaview - Holly from @topknotgirl_

Biz babe, sewing machine queen, social media boss and mama to the best-accessorised kids on the block, the original TopKnot Girl herself Holly Elson talks Insta in real life for @topknotgirl

TopKnot Girl Photos

#me
I’m Holly, head hustler at TopKnot Girl + chief house wife to Nathan and mama to William (5) and Poppy (2). I'm unco, fair skinned and almost always have my hair in a topknot. I'm hairdresser by trade, but began making Headwear a few years ago after Poppy was born. I am a linen hoarder and love buying cook books, especially Jamie Oliver ones. 

#love
Cake, home made pizza, creating and my family. Not necessarily in that order

#bestoftheday
Today?  It began with two cuts/colours on my Aunt/Cousin and ended with a mad Zumba session. The mid section involved emails + sewing and a cuppa with my Dad. Continual kid wrangling/cleaning and washing was also wedged in there somehow! 

#inspo
Pinterest is always good inspo. I am building my fave boards so finding new things to add is fun! Also, fabric shopping always inspires me - hence why our range is so large.

#food
I love majority of foods. Indian, steamed dim sims, sweet baked goods and huge, fresh salads are among the faves. 

#swag
I crush on so many stores. I would say I could never have enough linen and love love love me some kip&co (much to Nathan's disgust) haha! 

#follow

Me, of course  (@topknotgirl_) haha! I love @_zilvi for cool decor, @large_family_finance (amazing budget tips and general money saving inspo!) and @mumswithhustle for biz inspo. Also check out @theconniediaries and @leopard_inthenight for cool styling. Oh and the Kmart hashtags - they always take me into a deep Instagram hole! 

#life

A little break next week for a wedding, then we have a Christmas range launching + some markets! Exciting!
