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
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.
How adorable is this little jar? I can certainly see that there has been a lot of love put into decorating it!
But what is inside??? Continue reading
Hello! The other day my first ever Lucky Dip Club subscription box arrived. It is a brand new company and I was eager to see what they had to offer! I decided to film my unboxing to show you what I got inside!
***WARNING*** for anyone who hasn’t yet received their box, it does contain spoilers.
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
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
Thank you for hopping over from Pretty Little Things In A Box!
A little while ago, I saw that Angela from Pretty Little Things in a Box was doing a Spring Blog Hop. I wanted to take part as I love reading Angela’s blog, and I wanted to discover other bloggers who do too! Plus, I have never taken part in a blog hop before and I love expanding my bloggy network!
The one downfall? I don’t like spring.
I know that a lot of people think this is pretty bonkers, but I have a few reasons:
1) I am a light sleeper so as soon as evenings and mornings start getting lighter, I start sleeping less. Even with ‘blackout’ curtains, I’m awake until it gets dark, and awake as soon as it gets light. I do use a sleep mask but that can be uncomfortable, but at least it helps. Continue reading
The other day, my mum was having a clear out, and she came across this adorable vintage sewing book, which she had bought when she was younger. Her plan was to write her sewing projects in it, but she never got round to it, so when she unearthed it, it was still completely unused. Since she passed on her love of crafts to me, she also decided to pass on the book too.
I love the adorable introduction, it is so cute! The font is pretty unusual and it did take me a while to get used to reading it! I love the beautiful illustrations too! Continue reading
