Last week I finally got around to making a calendar using our travel photos. I’ve wanted to do this for years and as the office was shut this Christmas, it meant that I had the spare time I needed to make one. I absolutely love it! I’ve been using Bob Books for about 4 years now to print my annual photo book but this is the first calendar I’ve had done with them and I’m very impressed! The quality is fantastic. I think it cost £16 including postage so a bit more than a regular calendar would cost and a lot more than the 99p advert for Vistaprint I saw the other day but it’s so perfect that I don’t mind. I’ve also pre-entered everyone’s birthdays so they are all nice and neatly typed
Here’s some of my favourite months:
Also, I wanted to say Happy Birthday to one of my best friends, Lauren. She is 24 today and I love her to bits
And here’s my dull outfit of the day. Honestly, I get so embarrassed when I tell people I have a style blog.
We had our Brownies Christmas party today! It was so much fun! We had hot chocolate with marshmallows and popcorn while watching Polar Express. Everyone went in their pyjamas and took pillows, duvets and teddies. We all got given a bar of chocolate and a shiny bell on a red ribbon
Obviously I didn’t wear my pyjamas to work though….(excuse my grumpy/tiredness in this photo)
I got my first batch of presents yesterday and started wrapping them. I’ve gone all out and used ribbon this year too – and it’s safe to say that I’m never going back! I love it! It’s so cheap and simple and easy but looks amazing.
Sorry for the super late post! Been crazy busy!
So much exciting stuff happening right now! I feel like I get an email every 5 minutes with something amazing in it! It’s very fun but a bit stressful!
Anyway, got my toenails all Minxed up for my holidays Let me know what you think! (It’s called For Naja – London Days just in case you wanted to order it yourself and I got mine from this shop on eBay!)
Went to Open Sandwich this evening. Open Sandwich is a free ‘networking’ event that my husband runs for foodies in the local area. I use the term ‘networking’ loosely because it’s much more informal and casual than that! Basically if you run a food/drink related business or just want to find people with similar interests to talk to then you can just come along and meet new people This is the 4th one so far and it’s going really well. Lots of new friendships have been made and there have been a couple of business partnerships formed too so it’s all very positive and lovely
The events are always at a different location and hosted by different people. This time it was hosted at The Green House Hotel by The Green House Hotel and there were lots of Halloween canapés for eating and a chance to win a wine hamper.
Unfortunately I couldn’t make it until slightly later because I was getting my nails done but managed to spend about 2 hours talking to the lovely Lisa, Chrissy and obviously Jimmy.
Oh look, another day where I’ve managed to look a jumbled mess. I’m getting good at this.
