Hey guys, today I would like to introduce you to one of my best mates. She has a blog herself and is currently working on setting her own card making business. She makes beautiful cards at a very good prices. She has written a bit about what she does for you guys to read. Hope you enjoy and please pop over to her craft blog where she posts the cards she makes at http://fayscraftblog.blogspot.co.uk/


Hello! I would like to thank Hayley for allowing me to share my craft blog on her blog, it means a lot. I recently made this blog last week, it took some time to think about it, as I new I would want to set up a new Pinterest,bloglovin etc just for 'Fays craft Blog'. I am hoping to make this into something big, and something I will enjoy doing as a full time job, but that will come later on. I make pretty much any type of card e.g. Weddings, birthdays, new born and many more, as a few of you may have heard I also make wedding invites and table names, something I tried last year on a work mates wedding an really enjoyed it, this does take a lot of time and hours in the day. But I enjoy it. If you would like to ask me any questions, please do pop over to my craft blog and there shall be my email on the right hand side. Thanks for reading.

YouTuber Books - Tanya Burr, Zoella and Fleur De Force


Hey guys, today thought would share a mini review of some books some of my favourite YouTuber's have recently brought out.
Will start by saying I really enjoyed all the books, some more than others though.


Will start with Girl Online by Zoe Sugg.
Starting with this one as it is very different to the other two. This is a novel, so a story book. When I first started reading it in all honesty I was not over impressed its a good book yes but I would not say its fantastic. Its a nice easy read and did not take me very long to read. I won't say anything about the story line as don't want to spoil it for anyone who has not read it. 

Would give it 3 out of 5 stars


Next up is Love Tanya by Tanya Burr
Now I have to say I do really like this book. No sure what to say this book is as its a mixture of things. She talks about growing up, hair, fashion, friendship and many other things it really is jam packed with things. Its a really nice read and is totally Tanya, my favourite thing is the little note bits in it where she says to do stuff like "list your beauty icons and why they inspire you". I really like that as its like she wants you to be a part of the book to and its nice to look back on to. If you are a fan on Tanya than this certainly is a must!

I would give this one 4 out of five stars


and last but really not least is The Glam Guide by Fleur De Force
No First thing to say is I really truly LOVE and ADORE this book. The book just looks pretty and love the rose gold on it and the stars making it seem really her. When you are reading through this book you really do read everything in Fleurs voice. The illustrations and pictures are lovely, its nice to read. The beauty bits and things like that are not like "oh you must have the certain product..." blah blah blah its encourages to be you and find whats good for you and I really like that. I think this would be a fantastic gift for a teenage girl or even older. I am finding it hard to put into words how much I love this book. 

Now this book is totally getting 5 out of 5 stars!

Hope you enjoyed these mini book reviews. Have you read any of them? or all of them? which did you like the best and why?

Craft Haul

Hey guys, quick post for you guys today. Just thought  I would share with you some craft bits I have bought recently. I plan to do a scrapbook on the engagement weekend so thought would share with you what I have bought.



So here is the scrapbook I bought, I just thought the design was super cute. This came from WHSmiths and was £9.99. It has 50 blank white pages in it. So with the many photos that were taken I am sure I can fill it up.

I also bought some backing paper to help it look pretty. This set is large 12x12 paper which I can cut down and has lovely floral and garden designs on it.


Also bought some smaller 8x8 ( I think) paper, Really liked the designs on this super cute. Will be good for using as borders around photos etc.


Last few bits.

Crafting tweezers, these are ideal to make sure you get a straight placement when sticking things down and come in handy when dealing with small bits.

Fabric stars, I spotted these selling off and just thought they were cute, not sure what going to use them for yet but sure I will find something. They also had some bunting ones which I may go back and get

Ribbon, this set of wedding ribbon was selling off for 50p and just picked up as though might be able to use in some DIY wedding stuff or even in my scrapbook

Dolly pegs, at the moment I keep pinning craft stuff and dolly pegs keep coming up. I saw this huge pack of them and decided to pick them up.

Really getting into crafty things at the moment and you guys seem to enjoy it too. So keep an eye out for more craft posts. Hope you enjoyed this little craft haul.
