I’m back! Hello! How are you? It’s been a while, hasn’t it? But it’s nice to be back and I’m bubbling with ideas and a new focus so really excited to get going again and share my ideas, tips and snapshots of my life. I’ll get a bit more into that soon, but for now I thought the best way to get back into the world of blogging was to share some of the things that have caught my eye or are buzzing around my head at the moment. Snapshots feels like a fitting name; I tend to get caught up in things I love and then it quickly passes and I find something else, so through this post I can actually capture and share those things that felt important in that moment of time.
- The excitement my friend and I feel about the release of Stylecraft’s limited edition collection of colours is almost ridiculous; we’re like kids on Christmas eve at the moment. It’s been accelerated recently as projects with the collection have begun to be posted on Instagram. A blog tour (and giveaway) begins on Friday 25th September so I’ll be keeping a close eye on Stylecraft’s feed!
- I love re-discovering an album. On Spotify I often save albums, forget about them and then find them again months (or sometimes years!) later. Recently it’s been Lana Del Rey’s first album, Born to Die; it’s so beautiful. Have you heard her new song too?
- This summer I’ve found myself getting into YouTube channels and podcasts – why have I joined this party so late? After meeting Kate last week, I’ve been really enjoying A Playful Day podcasts. The latest on make do and mend is especially interesting.
- Hollypip‘s is one of my favourite Instagram feeds; she’s an amazing crocheter (is that a word?) and this week she shared the Repeat Crafter Me Christmas crochet-along project she’s started. I’ve had to resist the urge of making it myself (more on that another time!).
What’s caught your eye recently?
