I have no idea why I am always so absent from this blog! I have loads of time, and am always making stuff, but don’t seem to post it. It's just a collection of things I like, which is absolutely fine, but come on! My goal for the next couple weeks is to post at least twice a week. I have lots of DIY coming up, a couple great recipes that I have tried and are delish, and some big updates to write about, so stay with me!!!
I have a huge collection of things I love from these past couple weeks!
Calendars and planners. I’m sure that I have said this before, but omg I have found some really good ones in the past couple weeks! One of my favourites is the Passion Planner by Angelia Trinidad. It combines your personal goals and professional goals into one great planner. You can download and print the whole planner (in two sizes!) for free by sharing the link on social media, or you can buy one from her online shop. I printed a couple weeks worth to finish the year off, but am thinking about pre-ordering one for 2016!
Anything gold. Obsessed! I got a kraft paper planner by Sugar Paper (at Target!) last year with gold dots all over it and it has been an obsession ever since. I am loving gold foil backgrounds for my phone, gold accessories, and found the most perfect champagne gold faux leather for some bags! Yes to all the gold!
Speaking of gold....Alex and Ani. My friend Rose got me my first Alex and Ani bracelet and I cannot wait to get more! She got me the Friendship Arrow which is turquoise with two arrows intersecting. Described as 'Two arrows with intersecting centers is a symbol for friendship. While each one points in its own direction, they meet at the middle, touching at their hearts. Wear the Arrows of Friendship Bracelet and feel the heartwarming ties that bind true friends.’ it is seriously SO PERFECT. It helps to remind me that it’s ok for friends to go their own way, whether it be to England to live with their husbands or just off doing their own thing for a while. By looking at that bracelet it reminds me to leave a short message to say ‘hi’ (or to send a long email!) to all those people who are near and dear to my heart. I think this is one of the most important things-keep in touch with those you love and care about. It doesn’t need to be everyday, but let them know you are there for them and are thinking about them.
Vintage cars. I know I already wrote about this, but as fate would have it I found one!!! My mother in law said there was an old Fiat 1968 500L close to where she worked, and it was for sale! I said I was interested and we went to see it! It’s an oldie but a goodie-with only 76,000 miles! - but as it turns out it wasn’t really for sale. They guy said that if someone came and offered him £5,000 then maybe he would sell it, but I’m afraid it would be a money pit, so passed. It was so pretty though!
#LetterItOctober. Have you been hand lettering along? I’ll admit I am a bit behind, but am definitely going to continue! Here are some of the ones I have done so far. If you’ve been following along, post some of yours as well!
That's all for this week! Hopefully I'll have another post up in a day or so with some exciting news!!!!
Leave me some love,
