Hey, you! It’s the end of another week (and another month!), and in true hi-fives style, it’s time to celebrate another week gone by. If you’re a regular around here, you’ll know that Fridays are all about good vibes – so be sure to share your hi-fives with me too!
Lately I’ve been learning how to pack light and stick to it, having spent a few days in Birmingham this week and with another roadtrip due this weekend. No rest for this girl! I’m super excited to be gallivanting to Gateshead, which was a sweet birthday surprise from Elaine and Craig, as we’ll be spending some time with Tatty Devine! First we’ll be learning how to make statement parakeet necklaces, then sitting in on a talk with ultimate GIRLBOSSES, Rosie and Harriet. The only question is, what the heck am I gonna wear…?
I went along to the bloggers event at Remnant Kings last week and got a tour of their revamped creative space, and a heads-up on the beautiful fabrics that they’ll be stocking this season from the likes of Boden and Liberty. If that’s not enough to inspire some DIY fashion projects, I don’t know what is! I also grabbed brunch at Hutchesons with Lori, and had a good catch up over eggs and coffee.
Today I visited the rad Number 659 Salon on Great Western Road, and got my nails primed and polished by their in-house beautician, Ashley. The salon opened its doors 12 weeks ago, and boasts a whole range of beauty treatments – from massages to manicures and beyond! I left with freshly sparkling nails (thanks to a sprinkling of Sarah Hill’s gold glitter!) and a salted caramel brownie in my handbag – needless to say it was an awesome start to my weekend!
To keep the Friday feeling going, here are my top picks from this week…

It’s the start of October, which means Halloween is nearly here!
I hope you guys have a wonderful weekend and spend it doing at least one thing that makes you laugh until your cheeks hurt. I’ve just joined Periscope and will be attempting to use it on our adventures over the next few days. Come say hi and let me know what you think (maybe my efforts will be the very thing that makes you laugh!).
WIth love, glitter and pink luggage,
