I’m so excited to announce that I’m taking Mr. Bazaar’s #makeyousmilestyle over to America on a book tour for the Bright.Bazaar book! After almost two years working on the book, it’s equal parts thrilling and terrifying to be finally seeing the finished product make it’s way out into the world. The opportunity to be able to meet with blog friends old and new to celebrate colour and my book in America is a real honour, and I am incredibly grateful to all of Bright.Bazaar’s loyal readers, my publishers, west elm, Jonathan Adler and Mecox Gardens for generously making the tour possible. The best part? I get to team up with a group of blog friends in each city (see below) – we’re going to be heading on a city safari in each stop on the tour and sharing our favourite finds on west elm’s blog along the way. So even if you can’t make an event, you can still join along in my Stateside adventures. Of course, I’ll be sharing updates via the #makeyousmilestyle and #mrbazaartravels hashtags on my Instagram feed along the way, too! Here’s where you can expect to find Bright.Bazaar parties in America throughout May:

May 1st – Bright.Bazaar book party with Justin Livingston from Scout Sixteen at west elm’s Chelsea store, 6:30pm – 8:30pm | RSVP here
May 5th – Bright.Bazaar book party with Alaina Kaczmarski & Danielle Moss from The Everygirl at west elm’s Lincoln Park store, 6:30pm – 8:30pm | RSVP here
May 8th – Bright.Bazaar book party with Jonathan Lo from Happy Mundane at west elm’s Beverly Blvd store in Los Angeles, 6:30pm – 8:30pm | RSVP here
May 9th – Legends of La Cienega book signing event at Mecox Gardens store, La Cienega Blvd, Los Angeles | RSVP here
May 15th – Special Bright.Bazaar book event with Jonathan Adler | Details and invite coming soon!

Looking forward to hopefully seeing and celebrating with you soon, friends!
