Monday happy things

Happy Monday everyone, hope you had a great weekend. Our weekend started with a trip to the cinema to see the new Thomas and Friends film and ended with another classmates birthday party for my son. It was a busy weekend but luckily there are only 3 days left of school before the holidays start 🙂

I’m giving advance notice that I’m taking part in a Tatty Teddy Twitter party on Tuesday 21st July between 4 and 5 pm. It will be a fun Twitter party and I want to know what you’ll be celebrating this summer. Make sure you are following me @gingerbread_mum and @_Me_To_You or the #TattyTeddyTrends

The last few weeks I’ve been using a nail file from Stylefile. I love buffing and polishing my nails so have been enjoying looking after them with these new tools. Invented by Tom Pellereau who was on The Apprentice, the range includes a mini nail file you can attach to your keys,  a mani pro nail file and nail file with cuticle oil. My nails have never felt so well looked after. I especially love the emergency nail file which will be perfect for our European mini break this weekend. Have I mentioned we have an adults only weekend pass?

If you read my review of the Kawaii Box subscription box you might like the Chanrio Maker site which lets you makeover yourself into your favourite Sanrio character. This is me!

My favourite press show of the year is Hobbycraft and I had a great look around their showcase of Halloween and Christmas products. I popped into my local Hobbycraft yesterday and they were already setting up an aisle of seasonal products. I admit to buying a pack of cute little gingerbread men which will be great for embellishing cards.

More cuteness has arrived at our house with the release of Season 3 Shopkins. My children adore these cute little collectible characters from your favourite shops. Season 3 Shopkins feature a very cute gingerbread house and I managed to buy Ginger Fred in both colours. These are destined to be a necklace and new keyring for me.

      Yes, it’s come round really quickly! Not sure if I’m more excited about the Belgian beer and waffles or Miffy spotting 🙂
