Monday Mix and Match

Another week, another Monday Mix and Match*….*disclaimer: it may or not actually be Wednesday… My bad! As they say, life gets on the way and with a full time job, dance classes and family commitments, every so often something has got to give! But hopefully you are all having a happy and not too busy hump day! If you do, take a moment or two for yourself, take some time out with a cuppa and have a read of my favourites in beauty, fashion and homewares for this week! It might even inspire a purchase or two for this coming payday weekend (can I get a hallelujah!!)…

DIY: Easy and Personalised Valentine’s Day Gift

Anyone out there who’s been caught short of a Valentine’s Gift today, and need a last minute gift for your love, look no further – I’ve got your back! Now, myself and the boyfriend never make a huge deal of Valentine’s Day (although he has learned the hard way that a card is required…), but it’s always nice to mark the occasion with something thoughtful. Generally this would involve one of the usual boring “man gifts” – there’s only so much you can get them, isn’t there? Well normally, I’d pop into Topman or River Island to get some novelty heart socks or a car air freshener, or something exciting like that..but a nasty flu has me confined to my house this week (so…bored) and desperate times call for desperately creative measures.
