Happy Notes

Hello, you!   Hope you’re well, please do excuse my month long absence – clearly my ‘twice weekly’ posting schedule is just not something I roll with, ALAS, here I am – surprise! Over the last month, I have developed the habit of writing happy notes and leaving them in places, like books, for people to find. If you don’t know what a happy note is, essentially all it is is a bit of paper/post-it note/you name it, with a positive message written on it. I left these notes around a couple of times when I was sixteen but then the misery of life got the better of me and there was no more joy to spread, STOP YOUR TEARS, I’M KIDDING – I don’t know why I stopped doing it, to be honest, so here I am, back at it again, aged 21.   You may have seen these on Instagram   I regularly get into the habit of collecting things for a ‘creative project’… Sometimes I won’t even have a project, I’ll just see something and think ‘this could be so cool for something one day’ – I blame my mum and her many creative ventures.

Snazzy Salteria

Hello, you! If you don’t know, two of my great loves in life are colours (I’m genuinely next level obsessed) and accessories – particularly bags. I was scrolling through the explore section on Instagram when I saw these UNBELIEVABLY SNAZZY, brightly patterned clutch bags. I clicked on the profile to discover Salteria… A design company founded by the lovely Bethany Salt. I REALLY wanted to work with Beth because her designs are so incredible and she deserves way more recognition.     Beth was kind enough to gift me the ‘Phoenix’ bag – I LOVE the pattern and the neon yellow with all the different colours. I love the designs so much that I went on to buy the ‘Mantis’ bag myself, which has sequins embroidered. My friends could tell you that my typical ‘night out’ outfit is ALLL black, so I love having accessories that really stand out – these bags do exactly that. How could they NOT catch your eye?   Phoenix A little bit about Bethany   My name is Bethany Rose Salt but most people just call me Beth, I’m 24 and I like being this age.. that might be because I still feel 15!

Birthday Season is Upon me | AD

Hello, you! I don’t know about your wonderful self, but I just LOVE giving gifts – seriously, I’ll find any excuse to buy someone a present and don’t even get me started on wrapping paper and ribbon, it’s an unhealthy obsession. Now, I’m not going to start referring to myself as the Queen of Gift Giving (ha ha ha, I don’t do that, that would be sad…) but I am bloody good at finding a great present. Birthday season is upon me… I know people are born all year round but many people who are special to me have clustered birthdays in Feb-March and again in July-August – these my busiest months on the gift giving front! I realise I’m beginning to make myself sound a bit like Santa… If I carry on consuming cheeseburgers at this rate, I may end up a similar size. I love buying presents that can be sentimental and kept for a long time – I think it’s so lovely to have things to look back on, I still have the bracelet my parents bought me for my 16th birthday. One website that sells great jewellery is Uncommon Goods – lots of their jewellery has… View Post
