Crafty What Nots Subscription Box

Apologies for the break in blogging – definitely much longer than intended! Anyway, I am back with something very exciting that I know you will love!

It is no secret that I love post. And crafts. So something that combines the two…what could be better? Introducing Crafty What Nots!

A little while ago I received an email from Jenny of jennysis.com telling me about her new venture into creating monthly subscription boxes crammed full of craft supplies. She very kindly offered me her first box to review…how could I possibly say no!

Crafty What Nots

Rather foolishly, I gave Jen my home address to post my parcel to; little did I know how huge the box was going to be! The size of the box was a rather pleasant surprise in itself! Although it did result in a red card of doom and a two day wait before I could collect it from the post office. However, it was well worth the wait! Continue reading

Lucky Dip Club Subscription Box #3 Unboxing – Pet Parade

Hello! Yesterday I was so excited when my third Lucky Dip Club subscription box arrived. Since my first unboxing video was so popular, I have filmed one for this box too! I would have filmed one for the second box, but it was delivered to my old address so there was a bit of a delay before I received it, but if you would like to see what I got please let me know and I can put something together for you :)

***WARNING*** for anyone who hasn’t yet received their box, it does contain spoilers.

Here are some photos of what I got inside:

Moving Update!

Hello! Sorry for the break in posting blogs and commenting on yours! I am really missing being able to read them! I moved house this weekend, and we are currently have no internet access for three weeks (eugh!) so there will be a delay in my posts I’m afraid! I am going to take the time to get plenty lined up for you though!

I look forward to catching up with my blog and yours soon! x

Giveaway Goodies!

My goodness, I have been overwhelmed by giveaway prizes recently! It tends to go in phases when I win quite a few in one go, then don’t win any for ages…recently I have been pretty lucky when it comes to random draws! Isn’t that the fun of giveaways??? I wanted to take this chance to share with you some of the wonderful gifts that I have won.

The first giveaway was from Azura Chan, in partnership with her friend Ain. To celebrate her birthday, she was giving away a ‘Jar of Love,’ that I was lucky enough to win.

Jar 1

 

How adorable is this little jar? I can certainly see that there has been a lot of love put into decorating it!

Jar 2

But what is inside??? Continue reading

An Update

Goodness…how long has it been since I last posted??? I don’t even want to think about it! Apologies for the lack of posts…I’m sure many of you will have seen me around still, commenting on your posts and replying to comments, but everything is so hectic here that my regular posting has slipped!

Those of you who read my Spring Blog Hop post will know that we were going through a difficult time, as my Grandpa was taken ill very suddenly at the end of March, before he sadly passed away on Easter Sunday. He had a lovely funeral service on the 1st May, which he had chosen the songs for, and he left me the responsibility of choosing the poems. Somewhere between all of that, April happened, and I’m not sure where it went. Because I lost April during this stressful and upsetting time, I have applied for some extensions on my university work, and right now, that is my main priority; hence the lack of blogging. I’m still desperately clinging to the blogging sphere by commenting and replying to comments, but posts may be quite few and far between for a little while so I hope you can bear with it! I do have a lot of posts lined up though! I have at least 4 book reviews on hold as well as a couple of general posts and several Youtube videos in need of editing. Right now the time consuming bit is the taking and editing of photos and videos, which I can’t afford to do right now. I’m hoping that this hiatus will be over in the next few weeks though, and I may be able to squeeze in a few posts around then! Continue reading

2014 Photo A Day Challenge – April

Here are my photos that I took throughout April as part of my Photo A Day Challenge. I hope you enjoy them!

On my last Photo A Day video, a reader commented that they wanted to know the story behind the photos, so I have decided to post my Instagram captions below for you to read if you feel like it :) Continue reading
