Happy Sunday! I hope you’ve all been having a wonderful week, and are feeling super refreshed and motivated for the week ahead. I thought today I’d catch up with you guys and share what I’ve been up to for the past week or two! 🙂
Then on Monday, I had the great phone call I have EVER had. Like seriously. You may have seen me screaming about this on Twitter because I was bouncing off the walls with excitement. I have been approached by someone to do something HUGE. Like.. my dream, my top bucket list project. I hate being so secretive but I really have to for now! It’s going to be a long time before it all comes out too, but oh my god I’m excited! Just know that I’ve started working on something big, and I’m counting down until the day I can tell you all.
That was the start of a consistently great week to be honest, and it’s just been one good thing after another. Gary’s mum and her partner visited us from Plymouth, and we had a great time. We went out for drinks and a lovely meal, and I even got to wear one of my beautiful new necklaces from Eclectic Eccentricity*.
They’re absolutely beautiful aren’t they?! Eclectic Eccentricity (try saying that 5 times fast) have a huge range of wonderfully quirky jewellery, and really celebrate the unique. I especially love their rain cloud range!
Onto another exciting event; on Wednesday I got to make a little trip to Superdrug Bromborough to check out all their new products, and even experience their nail bar! I’ve never visited a Superdrug with a nail bar before, and they also had a brow bar too! I got completely pampered and spoiled while I was there, and couldn’t be more grateful. I’ll be sharing all the details here on the blog tomorrow though; so be sure to check that out!
I celebrated hitting 600 sales on Etsy this week – WOOHOO! I was so so overjoyed I screamed! (Sorry neighbours). I know this might not seem like a lot to bigger businesses or more experienced sellers; but to me this was truly amazing and I’m so grateful. I honestly got emotional just thinking how many lovely people support me, and I know I’d be bloody nowhere without them. That includes all of you reading this! 🙂
Prints available on Etsy.
I treated myself by ordering a new comic I’ve never tried before (I’m definitely going to grow my collection in 2017). I opted for ‘Paper Girls’ by Brian K. Vaughan; which seems like a nostalgic 80’s vibe story of a group of awesome pre-teen girls, who all have a paper round, and experience something mysterious together. It arrived yesterday so I’m only just starting it, but it’s so freakin’ beautiful! The artwork is amazing and I feel so inspired by the aesthetic. Plus it has MAJOR Girl Gang feelz. You can buy it here if you fancy it – not an ad or anything, I just genuinely think a lot of you would love it!
And finally, I’m all done for Christmas, yay! Well, to be honest I’ve been done for about 2 weeks, hehe. I was very organised this year. But I’ve even finished wrapping all my gifts now and writing out cards. I only wish I could send Christmas cards to my blogger friends; but postage costs so much! 🙁 *sends an e-card to you all*.
I am so excited for Christmas to come now, and to spend time chilling out with Gary and family. My mum has promised she will get me a ukulele too, so I’m counting down the days! I figure 2017 is going to be the year I try learn new things and challenge myself. The ukulele is just the first step.
I hope next week is just as great as this week was, and I hope all of you are doing well!
Thanks for reading guys 🙂 x
