Omg, I went absolutely crazy at Michaels yesterday. I’ve been in Toronto, Canada for 6 days now and spent the most amount of money ($110) at Michaels! Worth it! ❤️

These were on sale for $2 each!

Don’t even need a mouse mat but this design was too cute! Also have daily planner pages from the sale section.

*Because normal Paperclips are boring*

I came across these 2 sets of paperclips on Aliexpress (apologies I cannot remember where I got the woodland-themed clips from).

They came quickly, free delivery and in great quality.

*Britto Disney Collection*

I remember when I went to Disneyland Paris a couple of years ago, I saw a new Disney collection/range. It was absolutely stunning, the work was beautiful but it was the use of colour that caught my attention. I love colours! They had stationery, figurines and artwork. I took these photos last year of just the figurines.

The designs have always stuck with me, I regret not buying anything, but at the time and had willpower and didn’t actually need anything! I had an idea to create my own piece of art using inspiration from this collection. I Googled it to find out it’s name, which is Britto because this collection was designed by a Pop-artist called  Romero Britto. Here are some of the figurines that you can buy from the Disney Store- Britto Collection website:

*Sugar? Yes please!*


Happy Easter everyone :).

I have a sweet tooth and I eat sweets daily. I don’t eat chocolate so I don’t feel so bad about eating sweets! Marshmallows, marshmallow fluff, Haribos, jelly beans/babies/bunnies, dolly mix, lollipops, etc…

A kid at school got me a Weenie Beanies jelly bean holder so I just stock up on my sweets and keep it on my desk. I also have a supply at school 👍.

*Duck/Duckling & Washi Tapes*

I don’t know where this obsession came from, but craft tapes are amazing. The variety of Duck tapes in existence is out of this word (some literally Space-themed), I didn’t even discover Duckling tapes until last week. I just seem to see Duck and Washi tapes everywhere I go so I decided to start bringing them home with me, after all, they need homes :p.
