Blogging Favourites Of The Month
Blogger Friends - my first blogging favourite of the month would have to be the little meetup I went to where I spent the day in Brighton with five lovely bloggers Michelle, Ria, Skye, Lauren and Katie.

DIY Feature - another highlight of the month was when my Washi Tape post was featured on the Tumblr DIY tag. I've gained lots of new readers because of it, so if any of you are reading this hello and thank you for stopping by!
