so far...


This week has been rather hectic and i know i said at the end of last week i was going to share with you my new Thrifty Thursday post, i never got around to sharing it with you all, so apologies for that it will be up soon. Anyway this week it has been back to work after a rather chilled out half term off, i had a crazy influx of orders over at RubyRaeLove and i am so grateful to everyone that orders, i just wanted to take the time to let everyone know that if you order your item between saturday and thursday they will be dispatched on the friday end of the week, this is due to working full-time i only get to the post office on the friday, it really bugs me and its the only thing i miss about working part-time that freedom to drop your orders off when ever. Also every item is made to order so i don't have a massive warehouse full that i can just pop in an envelope and post off. Enough business talk.
For most of the week my hair has been making me smile its crazy curly at the moment which i love, i am just contemplating dying it again, maybe a little lighter than what I have now. 
In the 3rd picture i have some really wonderfully bamboo coral beads that are just so wonderful i have been working on new necklaces for the summer. Spring has been in the air in london and it has been absolutely lovely walking home after work and not having to wear a big bulky jacket is just bliss, i had started to forget that the sky is sometimes blue, that sounds rather depressing doesn't it, but winter has felt really long. In other news we had a mega pancake day, i have decided to give up all fizzy drink for lent. It is one of my biggest vices seriously i could devour a massive bottle of pepsi max in one sitting, so i think for my health it is time to give that up. Have you decided to give anything up for lent?

  2. That's awesome that you have a bunch of orders! And my week has been really hectic too. Working and school and all that stuff.

    I love the coral and turquoise! Looks like you'll be making such pretty jewelry for spring.

  3. All your stuff looks exciting! It must be really hard working full time and running your business. I am away to launch my online boutique in 6 days (EEK) and find there's not enough hours in the day to make work, organise stock, marketing etc and I only work part-time!! So your very inspiring :-)

  4. Oh I'm glad you're making the necklaces again! I wanted to buy one before but I think they ran out! Just need to wait for my new card to arrive then I'll try to get one :)

    Ah! I was meant to give up fizzy drinks for lent and completely forgot and ordered one when I went out for food, oops! Hope you do better than me, good luck!
