    Counting My Blessings

    After last week, I realised that it’s ok not to be ok. I know that’s a cliché but it’s true. I finally wrote how I was really feeling and felt better afterwards. This week has also been challenging mentally but you know what? I’ve been lucky enough to have a wonderful husband to support me through it and also have some great support from my wonderful subscribers. Love you all! So this week I’ve spent a lot of time with family, in particular Riley. He has done so well recently, riding his bike on his own, trying new foods, (with the help of his new friends The Bush Babies) and…

    IIITTT’SSS CHHRRIIISSTTTMMAAASSS!!

    Well, almost. And the joke is, I didn’t even realise! Walking around Brighton, I haven’t been getting much of the Christmassy vibe… so it was time to shake things up. This week my crazy friend Abi joined me in full blown festive gear, and we went about town spreading as much Christmas cheer as possible… without even really trying haha! You can see our shenanigans here. She was dead chuffed with the bracelet I made her though, she deserved it, after all she has helped me out on so many occasions, least I could do was make her a gift! You can watch me make it here. And the making…

I got my October box pretty late, (you can see what’s in it here) but I still wanted to create something cute, pastel and special, despite the fact it was Halloween themed,      cos…ya girl doesn’t really do Halloween haha! ANYWAY! I made the most adorable coffin shaped shaker which was also a trinket box…AND a necklace all in one! I sent S & T an email with a link to it, and…

    So Gloomy This Week… Perfect Weather For…

    Filming! That’s literally all I’ve been doing all week. I can’t be dealing with this horrible weather! Keeping myself wrapped up in my editing,  and really enjoying the filming process! Favourite thing I’ve filmed this week is my winter lookbook… which actually has more than one look in it! 😂 In fact it has 5! I decided to challenge myself and film it alone,  in my room. Some obstacles I faced were: *Lack of space meant I couldn’t get a nice full length shot with a decent background *Not being able to move the camera much as it was locked to my ring light *Even when using hand held it…

    Hyper Japan Winter 2018

    Wow! What a fun-tastic day we had!  My husband Mike and I took a trip to London last weekend and went to Hyper Japan,  a convention celebrating all things Japanese.  Of course, I was there to get my kawaii fix! I’d been looking forward to this so much, ever since the one we went to in July. I just felt like that was where my tribe was; people who dressed like me! I’m full of fairy-kei, pastel vibes but there aren’t many people like that around me.  I met some lovely people on Saturday, and was blown away by the talent of some of the sellers!  One thing we noticed was…
