Personalised little instagram magnets from Sticky9!

If you've been following my blog for a little while now, you'll know I'm an absolute sucker for anything personalised with my instagram photographs. I have a whole wall in my room full of instagram polaroid prints and I've eaten many a personalised photo cake, so when I was asked by Sticky9 if I'd like some of my instagram photographs printed onto magnets for my fridge, I couldn't say no! I picked a few favourite images - some of my family and friends, some of my puppies and some cute quotes.

As soon as they arrived, I was in love. They're the perfect size and really good quality. The colours are nice and bright, and they'll be the perfect little addition to my kitchen! I already can't wait to order some more as I want my fridge to be full of them eventually! They also ship worldwide for free so they're the loveliest gift for yourself or a loved one! :)

They really brighten up a boring, white fridge! I'm planning to order some for my mum's birthday as I know she'd love some photo additions in her new home too! :) When they first come, they're stuck together in a big square so it's up to you if you want to rip them up into three rows, or all into separate squares... either way they look fabulous! If you're interested in getting some for yourself, you can get 15% off your first Sticky9 order with the code 'FRIENDVXQ9' :)

Last minute, I actually realised that I could also have these in my bedroom - they work so perfectly on the edge of my radiator! Sticky9 actually also sell photo prints, stickers and iPhone cases, so I'll probably be making another order sometime soon - I'll definitely be buying some more magnets as they're so cute!

Thanks for reading :)

Sunday summary #12!

Yet again it's got to Sunday and I realise I haven't had the time to blog all week! You'll be pleased to know (hopefully) that I've spent today scheduling some blog posts for this week, and I intend to blog at least once a week from now on, despite finding it really difficult to juggle life at the moment! My new job is going really well, although with it being full time I have just evenings and weekends to blog, but once I get home all I wanna do it get into bed and watch Netflix, or go out and see my boyfriend or friends. Then at the weekend, I'm always busy so my blogging is taking a bit of a backseat. I've also joined the gym this weekend, so that's another thing to take up my time, but I do love blogging so I'm gonna try get back into the swing of things! :)

How cute is this personalised wrapping paper?! I've scheduled a full blog post on this coming next week, so keep your eyes peeled! It's such a cute idea though, I will definitely be using the website to get some created for my loved ones :). Despite being super busy, I still find the time to update my Pinterest boards daily. (You can follow me here if you have a Pinterest account too, feel free to link me yours in the comments!) I thought this quote was pretty cute! I'm also getting severe Amsterdam withdrawal symptoms... I definitely think another trip there should be on the cards soon!

Since blogging, I've had a bit of an ikea bedroom makeover. I treated myself to those famous Alex drawers and have all my beauty supplies in one place. They're the best thing in my room at the moment, I just love them! :) I was also super happy by the way the Zoolander 2 Movie was announced last week - by Zoolander and Hansel walking the actual Valentino catwalk at Paris Fashion Week... pure genius! These baby daffodils only mean one thing to me, it's finally Spring! :)
Every single year me and my boyfriend say we'll go to the farm in Spring to see the baby animals, and every single year we forget! Now that I drive again, I decided that we were gonna go this year, and my sister came along too. It was a really funny day, filled with feeding the baby lambs, riding on tractors and taking goat selfies, and I filmed the whole thing so I'll hopefully have that up on my YouTube channel soon :)

I spent a lovely day in London with my friend Ahmed last week. We went to some cool galleries, had some yummy food and some good giggles! Me and my sister surprised my mum to an afternoon tea and champagne for Mother's Day - it was all so delicious and mum loved it! :) We had a few sandwiches each, cheesecake, brownies, scones with jam and clotted cream, banana bread, fruit meringue and unlimited tea!

I'm still discovering some lovely places when I'm out and about for work. Love Lane is a road that I drive down most days, and this cute little heart stone is placed outside a pub. It's funny how there's so many nice places around you but you have no idea unless you explore! My friend Rosie made this fabulous unicorn cake for our friend Daisy's birthday party. Not only was it pink and glittery, but the inside was red velvet!!!

How ridiculously amazing does this photograph of Iceland look?! Another reason I constantly use Pinterest is to pin all those places I intend on travelling to in my lifetime, I better get saving - there's alot of them! This week I went to the first carboot sale of the year and I can't wait for all the carboot sales of Summer! :) I only really got some CD's for my car & Joe got some vinyls, but I'm sure I'll find lots of vintage goodies these next few weeks! I've spent the majority of today tidying my room and photographing for upcoming blog posts - I'm excited to get some fresh content up! :)

This week's favourite song of the week is a cover of Hozier's 'Take Me to Church' by Dan Dore. He's a friend of my cousin's and his YouTube is a mix of hilarious challenges and amazing covers, definitely check him out :)

Thanks for reading :)
I hope you've had a lovely weekend!

Mother's Day gift ideas!

I love being able to treat my mummy, and now that I have a job this is the first time I can treat her in a while! I'm not gonna say what I've bought her yet, as I'm sure she'll read this (Hi Mummy HAHA!), but I'm sure she'll love it either way! Each mum is different, and your mum might want anything from a pair of snuggly slippers to a poster of Marilyn Manson, but I've put together a few things that I know my mum would like, and I'm sure most people wouldn't say no to! :)

I absolutely love this silky, elegant, dusky pink dressing gown! It looks so glam yet cosy and the lace trim cuffs are gorgeous! Make your mumma feel a million dollars with a little silky dressing gown :)

Real Techniques Bold Metals Over Shadow Brush - £15.00
If your mum's into her make up, why not treat her to one of the new Real Techniques brushes from their collection Bold Metals? I've chosen an eyeshadow brush but there is loads to choose from!

KitchenAid Artisan Stand Mixer in Almond Cream - £379.00
 Okay so obviously most people reading this won't be able to afford to buy their mother's this product for Mother's Day, but it's so lovely that I couldn't not include it in this gift guide! I hope to one day have a KitchenAid, and I'm sure your mum would be absolutely delighted if you turned up with one of these! :)

Lindt Lindor Strawberries & Cream Truffles - £4.89
The plain chocolate versions of these are to die for, so I bet the strawberries and cream flavour are absolutely incredible! If I got these for Mother's Day, I would be one happy bunny!

 Jo Malone Wild Bluebell Candle - £40.00
I've been lusting over a Jo Malone candle for myself, for a few months now (I am probably going to take the plunge next payday), and they are just so gorgeous. They have the loveliest scents and I'm sure you could find the perfect one for your mum! I love the sound of the wild bluebell scent :)

 Benefit Roller Lash Mascara - £19.50
I bought the Elle magazine with a free sample of Benefit's Roller Lash about a month ago, and I seriously haven't looked back since, I just love it! I loved their They're Real mascara, and this one is similar but a lot less thick so would probably be better for your mum too! It really curls the lashes upwards, so if you curl your lashes too, it creates the nicest lash shape!

 Paperchase Mother's Day Card - £2.50
I always go to Paperchase when I'm looking to buy a card for any occasion. They always seem to get it right. Whether you're looking for cute, funny or witty, I'm sure that Paperchase will have the perfect card to make your mum smile.

Pandora Heart Lock & Key Charm - £30.00
I understand that to buy a Pandora charm, you're probably going to need a Pandora bracelet (that is another gift idea though haha) but for this one we're going to pretend that your mum already has one ;) I personally love this heart padlock charm for Mother's Day! :)
How friggin' cute is this basket full of flowers?! As a floral and picnic basket lover, this is literally perfect for me, and I know that my mum would love it too! Flowers are a cliche Mother's Day pressie, but they can also be gorgeous too, particularly if they're in a basket!

Lush always seem to have a product to suit any occasion, and a pampering present for your mum on Mother's Day cannot go wrong. I love the name Yummy Mummy for this product, and it's described as a 'super-scrummy, sweet and floral shower gel' and to me, that sounds delicious!

Thanks for reading :)
