Sunday Spotlight - 30th March 2014

This week, I’ve been loving…

Personalised gifts

I love giving people gifts. I just find it so much fun trying to choose something that they’ll really like and that has a lot of thought behind it. This week has been particularly busy for gift giving, with my brother’s 21st, my friend’s wedding and Mother’s Day. My brother didn’t get anything particularly exciting (from my point of view) as I gave him a big present, a watch, for his 18th. For my friend, I wanted to get something really special, as she’s supported me a lot over the past few years. I did have a look through her wish list, but nothing jumped out at me, so I had a little think and came across Stacey on Instagram and Facebook. I loved her personalised products, but she didn’t have any wedding designs, so I dropped her a message and she was happy to do a new design. I ended up with these beautiful his and hers personalised mugs, which I was so happy with, and hope the happy couple will love too. For Mother’s Day I was really stuck with what to get. I always seem to go for flowers (nothing wrong with flowers – we got some too!) but I wanted something a bit more permanent. This is when good old Instagram came into it’s own again, and I came across Ashleigh Roy and her personalised word art. After contacting her and coming up with a design, I received this beautiful piece of art within a few days.


I’m getting really stuck into social media these days. Since starting this blog I’ve come to realise how powerful social media can be, so I’ve been investigating things other than Instagram, Facebook and Twitter. I’ve particularly fallen in love with Pinterest. It’s definitely right up my street with all the gorgeous photos, inspiration and craft ideas. This week I’ve been going a little crazy with pinning anything and everything, so I apologise to anyone who has been getting hundreds of notifications about my pinning! If you’d like to follow me on Pinterest, you can find me here.


I love nothing more than a good wedding, and this week saw a very close friend of mine making her vows to her childhood sweetheart. Unfortunately I’ve been feeling really quite poorly this week and was so worried I’d miss the ceremony. But with the energy I had left, I dolled myself up as best I could and my Mum took me down to our local Church. I made it to the vows and then had to leave, which I was so gutted about, but at least I saw the marriage, which was the most important thing. It was a beautiful, very emotional service and I’d like to wish the lovely couple all the luck and love in the world for a happy and healthy future together.

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!
