I've built some fantastic working relationships with book publishers and stationery suppliers and I'm so grateful for the opportunities they provide me with. They're certainly keeping my postie in business!… Continue reading Friday Favourites #39
I missed last week's Little Loves because I was busy hosting nine days(!) of giveaways to celebrate my fifth blogaversary, like ya do! There's sill a few live if you want to check them out (spend a day on the river, non-alcoholic goodies from Polgoon and a meal for two at the Rock Pool Cafe).… Continue reading The Happy Newspaper, Maya Angelou and Game of Thrones #LittleLoves

Another day, another awesome pop vinyl. There are so many awesome newbies available, including Babymetal, Travis Bickle, The Dude, Zack Morris, Cher Horowitz and Sam Tarly but my new fave has to be Arrow's Felicity Smoak. They're £10.99 each from Zavvi.
I'm a sucker for special editions of The Most Epic Boardgame Ever (Monopoly, in case ya didn't know!) and the latest, featuring Game of Thrones, is no exception. You can order your very own from Truffle Shuffle for £29.99.
