Sunday Loves – Family!

I’ve spent the weekend with my sister, brother-in-law and niece and it’s been lovely!

Pooh Quote
My niece has recently turned one, and is just so cute! We looked after her on Saturday while my sister and brother-in-law went on a date, then slept over and looked after her today. We’ve only been home a couple of hours and I already miss her!

Have you had a nice weekend?

Etsy Finds Friday – Christmas Edition

I am so sorry its been two weeks since my last post! I’ve not been feeling great so decided to have a break for a little while. Hope you can understand ♥

Over the next few weeks I will be focusing on Christmas gifts, and to cover every collection I will do two groups on each post (e.g. today I will be doing both mum and dad), and I will be doing a post every Friday (like normal) and an extra one on Monday’s :) This will also hopefully help if you want to buy anything as it won’t be too close to Christmas. Also, As always I will post something for every budget! ^_^

So, the first theme is:
