Personalised alphabet poster from Wonderbly

Growing up I had a personalised story book and it was/is the coolest thing. It featured my family and friends as characters - even little ol' me! So when Wonderbly released My Golden Ticket last year I had to get my hands on a copy and write myself and Jenson into the story. They have… Continue reading Personalised alphabet poster from Wonderbly

Posters for Change book review

A picture is worth a thousand words

If a picture is indeed worth a thousand words then it's no wonder that campaign posters have the power to incite change. Following the increased waves of activism around the time of the 2016 Presidential Election, Princeton Architectural Press put out a call for designers to contribute to a collection of tear-out posters. Nearly 300… Continue reading A picture is worth a thousand words

My 2017 birthday/Christmas wish list

In case I've not mentioned it enough already, I turn 30 at the end of the month - eek! People have been warned against surprise parties, speeches, singing and any memorabilia with my age on but, ya know, presents are always gratefully received. I'm not a monster! Now that I'm old there's nothing I really… Continue reading My 2017 birthday/Christmas wish list

National Stationery Week 2017: Thank You Thursday [Department Store for the Mind review and giveaway]

I hope that this week's National Stationery Week posts introduce you to at least one new brand and that you discover plenty of gorgeous goodies to adorn your office with. And perhaps some will help you with more than providing a nice new pen or notebook. I first heard about Department Store for the Mind… Continue reading National Stationery Week 2017: Thank You Thursday [Department Store for the Mind review and giveaway]

Item of the day: Gilmore Girls prints on Etsy

I spotted this awesome Gilmore Girls print on Fat Frocks' Instagram yesterday and got a bit carried away looking on Etsy. The danger of looking for Gilmore Girls merch is that I'm still only on season four and don't want any spoilers. I spotted this print of Rory's books which I think I might need… Continue reading Item of the day: Gilmore Girls prints on Etsy

Item of the day: Poster by Emily Coxhead on Etsy

Emily Coxhead is a fabulous creature - I can't wait for my first issue of the Happy newsletter to arrive. I've been having a look around her Etsy store and love this Instagram poster. It's also available as a mug - for £3.50 and £8.00 respectively. Her quotes are lovely too. My faves are Robin… Continue reading Item of the day: Poster by Emily Coxhead on Etsy

My Christmas list

Last week I shared Jenson's Christmas list and this week I'm sharing my growing list/Pinterest board. My birthday is two months away and Luke, the lovely boyfriend that he is, has already started shopping, so I'm not being that much of an eager beaver by putting together a Pinterest list of favourites for friends and… Continue reading My Christmas list

Follow Friday #1

So, I was planning on moving my highlights of the week post to Fridays, on account of Follow Friday. Then I got a bit behind for a week or two and was planning on making this post about the last three weeks. Then half the bloody post disappeared! So I've been loving a bit more… Continue reading Follow Friday #1

Best of the sales

One of the best things about Christmas is the post-Christmas sales - just try and ignore the fact that the gifts you bought are now half price! I've been checking out the whole internet (well, almost) so you don't have to. Here are some of my highlights: Happy jumper, Oliver Bonas, was £45.00, now £30.00… Continue reading Best of the sales
