Five Things & Five Blogs I Love Friday #35.

1. Getting crafty!
I have been so inspired to have a play with my cameras again after deciding to go ahead with my little print shop. I've got a few exciting ideas lined up & I'm hoping to create something similar to the first photograph. I'm going for a really fine art kind of feel and I'm hopeful they'll make really lovely greetings cards & prints! I've also been inspired to get my jewellery making supplies out again. There are so so so many online jewellery shops around and I know I can't compete with any of them but I enjoy tinkering around with charms so I have decided to pick it back up again. Hopefully there's a little space for me in the online jewellery shop world still!

2. Making videos.
I have really fallen back in love with making videos again. My channel isn't getting as many views as I was hoping for but I'm so so grateful to everyone that has clicked that little subscribe button. It really does mean the world! I'm thinking of filming a few outfit of the day videos as sometimes outfits don't photograph the way I had hoped they would! If you have any ideas or videos that you love to watch then please let me know, I would love to get some more inspiration!

3. The most beautiful engagement ring in the land.
There is something so incredibly magical about Rust Jewellery and this has to be the most beautiful engagement ring I have ever seen in my life. It comes with a price tag to match and I don't think I'd be able to wear it every single day for fear of damaging it but I can't help popping back for a sneaky look every so often!

4. Pandora.
I know I have mentioned Pandora an annoying amount of times over the past couple of weeks but I just can't help it; so far I can't really fault them as a brand! I noticed that the love letter charm I got with my bracelet had gotten really scratched after only a few wears. I was expecting some wear and tear but not that much after only a couple of days so I was really disappointed but decided to pop back into the store to see if there was anything they could do. To my surprise they replaced the charm for me which I wasn't expecting at all. I was super naughty that day and bought the two clips to separate the sections on my bracelet, they weren't the most exciting purchases but I'm happy that my bracelet is starting to look a little more put together already. I opted for two different clips, the sterling silver sphere & the sterling silver hexagon because I couldn't decide between the two and they're fairly similar so there's still that little bit of continuity.

5. Washi Tape from PrettyTape on Etsy!
It's fairly safe to say I want to buy all of the things from PrettyTape! Everything is so pretty & I think this etsy store is a crafter's idea of heaven! I'm not even sure what I'd do with it but I want some asap!

  11. My mum used to have a stash of pretty tapes in her 'wrapping drawer' when I was younger but I think they were just one-offs from whichever shop she went into, a whole store of them looks like heaven! Definitely inspired me to sort out my own wrapping drawer (feel very middle-aged!) and spruce up my supplies. The ring is absolutely beautiful, but yes a hefty price tag! When I win the euromillions I'll definitely leave this link in my favourites for my boyfriend to find!
    Thank you so much for mentioning me Jennie, I've been reading and enjoying your blog since early 2010 so it means a lot that you like my blog- lots of love :) xxxxxxx

  13. I need to get me some pretty tapes - I've never seen any as pretty as those! My wrapping collection is abysmally small, and currently has a few bits of tissue paper and some Happy Birthday paper with cars on. I only ever seem to buy presents for the men in my life! x
