Fabric Haul - Bury Market

Hi Everyone,

I went to Bury Market at the weekend so I thought I would share what I picked up. I got some fabric, ribbon and a few other bits. 

I can't wait to get sewing and see what I will make with these fabrics, I will have a blog post up soon with finished products so if I have finished I will post them.

Valentines Day Gift Ideas

As Valentines Day is coming up I have put together a list of gift ideas, they range in price so there is an idea to suit every budget.

1. Token Book - You can make a book full of tokens that your other half can claim. 

2. Love Jar - You can make a jar full of reasons why you love them. If you don't have the time to make your own this shop on Etsy sells some beautiful ones.

3. Brush Roll and Make Up - If your partner is a make up lover how about treating them to that item they have been wishing for. 

4. Flowers - An old favourite but still lovely to receive and can be extra special if you choose the flowers yourself instead of buy a ready made bunch. 

5. Erin Condren Planner - This is my dream gift and probably every other planner girl would love one of these. http://www.erincondren.com/lifeplanner

6. Craft Items - For the creative soul how about putting together a basket of craft supplies, they have a great choice on eBay and Hobby craft.  http://www.hobbycraft.co.uk/

7. Gift Voucher - Don't know what to get them? Buy them a gift voucher for their favourite shop and let them choose. 

8. Cookies and Cupcakes - Bake sweet treats the two of you can enjoy, you can make them as simple or complicated as you like.

9. Photo Album - Put together a photo album of special moments the two of you have shared.

10. Keepsake - You could get them something that marks a special time like the date you met and have it engraved on a bracelet.

My Office Essentials

As it's the new year I always treat myself to new stationary, so I thought it would be fun to blog my office essentials.

Computer - I like to have a desktop computer as they tend to have more storage and I find them easier to work on. It's an office staple as most the work I do is on a computer. 

Label Maker - I only just got this for Christmas and already I can see a massive difference in printing off posting addresses, it takes half the time and looks really professional. 

iPad - I love my iPad I using along with my computer as it enables me to keep track of my business when I'm on the go, I blog on it and I can take orders when I'm away from home. 

Diary/Planner - I don,t know what I would do without my diary, I just bought a new on for this year, I write my daily to do tasks, my blog posts and sales down in it, this way I never forget anything and I can plan my week out. 

Printer - Obviously a printer is a really useful tool to have, I can print invoices and recipes off and any other information I need.

Pens and Notepads - I love to make notes, of tasks I need to do or ideas that I have so I like to make a note of them. 

Post It's - I have so many Post It's, my boyfriend says I have enough to to open a shop but I love them and I use them every single day, either to write important tasks down or to make an event in my diary.

No7 - Beautiful Skin Cleansing Brush Review

I have been using the Cleansing Brush for a month now and I really like it. It says that it isn't recommended for dry skin which is what I have but it has been working really well for me. 

I use it every night to remove my make up, I take my eye make up first then I put the No7 Cleansing Balm on my face and use the fist slow setting on the brush to massage the cleanser and remove my foundation, then I just rinse it off. It takes half the time to remove my make up compared to doing it without the brush. My skin is softer and brighter and my makeup seems to stay on longer. 

Available from Boots for £24.95 and they currently have a 3 for 2 offer on. You can also buy new heads, I need to pick one up soon, they recommend changing the heads every 3 months but my foundation has slightly stained mine so I will need to replace it once a month. 

If you give it a try let me know!
