Art Swaps; The Enamel Pin Edit

Disclaimer: This is not a sponsored post and I have not been gifted or paid to write it. I just wanted to share some cool artists and spread the (enamel pin) love!

When I started my Etsy shop Pretty Little Finch, I knew I wanted to create my own enamel pin. My personal collection is rather impressive; I just love the way a few well chosen pins can add a playful twist to any outfit. When I listed the Pastel Blue Tit in my shop I was excited to sell it, but didn’t think for one moment about the potential of swapping with other artists.

A Family Day Out

I’m going to be diplomatic here; this wasn’t the best day out we’ve ever had (for reasons that will become clear later on in the post) however it wasn’t the worst. I really hate writing anything that could be construed as negative to a business; I’m not about throwing that negative energy out in to the world, but in the same vein I don’t like to lie/sugar-coat or pretend something was amazing when it wasn’t. So for those reasons I’m going to refrain from mentioning the name of the place we visited and instead focus on what we got up to. So here’s a little family day post for you!

The Lost Art Of Writing In Books

Think back to your childhood. Do you remember writing your name and the date in the front cover of your favourite book? When I was around eight years old I found the most perfect – albeit battered and falling apart – book on birds for sale in our local library. I loved it so much that I wrote my name, the date and my age inside of it, thus claiming it as mine forever and ever.

I no longer have that book, and I no longer scrawl my name inside of book covers. But to this day, I’m still fascinated by finding secret hidden messages in books.

Skin and Haircare Products; The Honey Edit

Honey really is a wonder product; it tastes delicious, it smells great and it has lots of health benefits. Brilliant at nourishing skin and hair, honey also contains antioxidant and antimicrobial properties. It’s no wonder then that our market is so saturated with health and beauty buys packed full of honey. Here I share my ultimate favourite honey skin and haircare products.

Menorca Holiday Diary

We have just spent a super-chilled seven days in Menorca and, whilst I don’t have any particular “days out” or “adventure” posts to share, I thought I’d post a few holiday snaps and write a little bit about what we got up to!
