“If we have a baby then you’ll only love me half as much.” Hubby once said, half jokingly. That’s why we put that task on hold, for half a decade… But thankfully, that self-made old wives’ tale has well and truly been busted. Now that we’ve had Winston, I can fully testify that love doesn’t work that way. Woot!
Some one wise once told me that when a baby comes along, love actually multiplies. Well there’s never been this much love in our families that’s for sure. You should see my Mom when she’s with Winston! Turns out that love isn’t ‘subtracted’ or ‘divided’ the more you give it away, it actually increases.
Maybe that’s how Eva Q started making these adorable ear headpieces. She loved the exquisite fabrics used to create her haute couture gowns so much that instead of discarding the excess (which happens a lot in fashion design), she has given them a new lease of life. Painstakingly cutting and folding them into florettes, sewing and beading them one by one, these ears are the fruit of her labour. And guess what? We are giving you the pick of the crop! We are delighted to give a pair of these delightful ear headbands to one of Cecylia.com’s readers. Eva will custom design a piece just for you. You can chose your favourite colour, as well as your favourite ear shape from between Kitten, Bunny or Teddy-Bear. To win, simply Like Eva Q’s Facebook Page and leave a comment below saying your favourite colour and ear shape.
We will be announcing the winner on Wednesday 16th April, just in time for Easter :) In the meantime, I better get packing for our first-ever family trip to Sydney for Mercedes Benz Australia Fashion Week! I’m going to try (very hard) to “Travel in Style with a Newborn”. Let’s see how we go… See you on the other side lovelies!

Chinese Translation by Teresa Ruan (Click below to read) [spoiler title=”中文版”] 我先生曾半开玩笑的和我说“如果我们有了宝宝你对我的爱就会减半”。这也是我们迟迟（快五年）不要孩子的原因。很感恩的是这个自编的迷信传说被真正打破了。我可以证明自从有Winston之后我们的爱并没有像别人说的那样减少。耶！有一个有智慧的人曾说过有孩子之后，爱会加倍。我们家现在的爱远比以前多的多。你应该看看我妈妈和Winston在一起的样子。 事实上你的付出不会使爱被分离变少反而会使它增加。这或许是Eva Q开始做这些可爱的耳朵的装饰品的原因。她那么的喜欢那些做高级定制服装用的精致材料，与其把边角料丢掉（这在时尚界很常见）她赋予它们一个新的生机。她的劳动果实就把这些材料一个个用精心的剪裁，折叠，缝制和串珠变成可爱的耳朵形状的装饰品。你们知道吗？我们将会给你一个收获这个果实的机会！ 我们很荣幸可以将一副这么讨喜的耳朵形状发饰赠从给Cecylia.com的其中一位读者。Eva会为了您专门定制一副！你可以选择你最新欢的颜色和你最喜欢的耳朵形状，有猫耳，兔子耳朵或小熊耳朵。参与方法是在Eva Q的Facebook点赞，并且在这里留言写下你最爱的颜色和形状。 我们将会在4月16日星期三公布获奖名单，刚好赶在复活节之前噢 ：）我现在最好开始为我们家的第一次Sydney之旅打包行李。这次是去参加Mercedes Benz赞助的澳洲服装周！我会尽我最大的努力“和宝宝一起有品位的旅行”。让我们拭目以待吧… 亲们Sydney见！[/spoiler]
