October has been a pretty slow relaxing month, which has been nice! It’s also been a month of warm sunshine, birthdays, illnesses and a trip to the Harry Potter Studio Tour with my mum ⚡️🎉
I am thoroughly blaming Brogan Tate for my pin collection 😂😂. Basically, I watched one of her YouTube videos about her pin collection, was absolutely enchanted by it and it really made me want to start collecting my own pins ❤️
For my birthday (back in August), I decided I really wanted to order a Gobstone Alley box as a present to myself. I got a one-off box for about £35 (the company is in Poland so I bought mine in euros).
If you’re unfamiliar with Gobstone Alley, they sell monthly Harry Potter related subscription boxes, filled with between 11 and 15 random and mysterious goodies (previous items have included a quill, wands, prints, stationery and you get the idea). The boxes also always include one wearable item (usually a t-shirt), some collectible playing cards, a candle from Incendio Candles and some loose leaf tea made by a company called Cosy Elves. The boxes are also filled with goodies from small independent retailers so you really feel like you’re getting something unique that’s been made just for that month’s box!
I’ve run out of inspiration and time for writing blog posts at the moment, but I should be back up and running properly very soon (I have loads of half-written posts I want to finish and publish!!).
In the meantime, as I’m spending a lot more time over on Instagram, I thought I’d share some more of my favourite accounts that I absolutely love!!
I nearly forgot to write one of these this month; it kind of slipped my notice that we were suddenly at the end of September!! I can’t believe we’re now in October already!
Since I started re-reading all the Harry Potter books again (I’m currently on Deathly Hallows), it’s fair to say it’s re-ignited my love for the Harry Potter world and all things magical. I recently wrote a post about my current collection, although I doubt it’ll be too long before I have to do an updated post; especially as I’m going to the studio tour with my mum in October and there are three gift shops 😂🙊
I was given Bear in November 2012 as a belated birthday present (I’ve written more about this here). We think, from Facebook posts of his mum’s owner, that he was possibly born on 10th September 2012!!
So, as he’s just turned 6, I thought I’d share what I’ve learnt about being a cat mum!
August is probably one of my favourite months; mostly because it’s my birthday and I usually take a week off to have some down time! Although this year I managed to get two weeks off due to my brother’s wedding being at the end of the month!
As it’s my 34th birthday next week, and I had to drop the post I was going to put up this week due to a miscommunication, I thought I’d let you know 34 of the things that I’ve learnt in the (nearly) 34 years of being alive!
Having massively got back into Harry Potter recently, I thought I’d share my small (for now) collection with you. This post was inspired by Fiona and you can check out her blog post here.
