Monthly highlights: September 2016

September was a busy month! It’s flown by but at the same time the 1st of September feels like so long ago. My highlights this month are varied to say the least and there’s a lot of them, so let’s get stuck in. Charity shop shopping at LOROS You’ll know all about this if you read my post about my charity shop shopping trip. In case you didn’t and you can’t be bothered to I’ll give you a quick explanation.

Papergang box #6: marble & copper dreams

I’m honestly ashamed at how late this post is. In fact, it won’t be too long until I receive my next Papergang box, so I’d better get this one out of the way first!

Say hello to my new boo, my Olympus PEN

I’ve had this little hunny (AKA my Olympus PEN) for a few weeks now, but I haven’t had chance to dedicate a whole post to her. Until now that is. She wasn’t easy to get hold of, and that’s an understatement! After going back and forth with a very well known camera retailer for nearly a week I almost gave up on her. But in the end I didn’t, and boy am I glad?! I had a fair few doubts about her before I took the plunge and handed over my hard earned cash. I’ve never been into photography. I enjoy it,…

My #EastMidsMeetUp Ohh Deer raffle prize

If you read my post about how much fun I had at the #EastMidsMeetUp then you’ll know that I won a whopping three times on the raffle! Well last week my prize from Ohh Deer was delivered so I thought I’d show you what I won. If you’ve seen any of my Papergang posts then you’ll know that I’m a huge fan of Ohh Deer. So when I saw that their stationery was up for grabs I could not hold myself back! I just had to have it. If you read my first ever Papergang post then this first item will…
