Pumpkin Carving 2017

Pennywise & Richie Tozier Pumpkin Lantern

Dot and I have been carving a pumpkin each for the last 4 years I think, we only do it for fun as we don't celebrate Halloween. I only remember trick or treating twice and never dressed up to go to a party. 

This year Dot did Pennywise, and I, Richie from It. I was thinking mine didn't turn out too good but from a distance you can definitely tell who it is - I think ha. At least I made my own stencil P;



Cute Bags at Rosegal

As you might have noticed already, I am a bit of a bag fan, and by a bit I mean a lot. So here I want to show you a couple of my favourite bags that they currently have for sale on the Rosegal website.

Rosegal bags
The bags I chose could not be more different from each other, but I love them both! The bag on the left is a black leather bag, which makes it very durable. You can hold it 2 ways: with the handles or with the long strap and wear it across your body. And the stud details on the front give it a more edgy vibe. It would be a great casual bag for wearing during the day and also for travelling as it is quite spacious.

The bag on the right is so cute and feminine with its pink velvety fabric. The quilting shows off the sheen on the fabric and the gold hardware contrasts nicely with the pink colour. It can also be held 2 ways: as a shoulder bag with its long gold chain (not pictured) or as a clutch bag if you decide to hide away the chain inside the bag. It's a perfect bag for more formal occasions or even as a night bag.

Which one is your favourite?

Eyes Like Lighthouses When The Boats Come Home Review + Giveaway

Eyes Like Lighthouses When The Boats Come Home

Eyes Like Lighthouses When The Boats Come Home* is a collection of selected poems by Dane Cobain - an author and poet influenced by what most people would deem mundane, making you think about how we don't pay much attention to the things that we do regularly or most days, such as taking public transport. 

Eyes Like Lighthouses When The Boats Come Home explores a variety of topics, including consumerism, politics, vegetarianism and inequality without the use of unnecessary fancy words, that resonate with everyone as he writes about such topics in a way that is easy to relate to - which is why I enjoyed reading the book: it is easy to read and understand -metaphors and all- but it's about current topics and relatable experiences.
