Sunday Spotlight - 3rd November 2013

This week, I’ve been loving…

Half term short breaks

Working in a school has its perks, half term being one of them! My Dad offered to take my sister and I up to York for a few days for a break, so of course I said yes! I won’t say too much about it here – that’s for another post. But although it was very tiring, and I came home for a rest, it was nice to get a change of scene and the chance to visit such a beautiful city again. Keep your eyes peeled for a more detailed post soon…

The Shambles, York


If you’ve never heard of Bitstrips, you may be wondering what on earth I’m talking about, and until earlier this week I would have been exactly the same! A friend introduced me to this new app and I’m slightly hooked on it now! You create your own avatar to look (or not look!) like you. You connect through Facebook, add other co-stars (Facebook friends) and then you can post cartoons with you and friends in all sorts of strange and silly situations. Here’s one I posted of my youngest sister and I.

Novelty socks

I’ve always been a fan of novelty socks – I mean, if you’ve got to keep your feet warm you may as well have some fun while you do it, right?! And with winter well and truly with us, novelty socks are taking over our high street. I’m particularly taken with these Accessorize cat socks and these New Look button-nose giraffe socks. My only issue is where to put them in my already overflowing draw of novelty socks!

What has grabbed your attention this week? I love hearing about people’s new discoveries and you may end up sharing something that makes it onto my list next week!


  1. Novelty socks are the best! Love the giraffes! <3
