So somehow it has got to December, Christmas is so close! Where has 2018 actually gone?! Anyhoo, now we are in a new month, it is time to look at my November faves.
1. Etsy Made Local Event
So at the end of November, I visited the Etsy Made Local event that was happening at the Custard Factory in Digbeth, Birmingham.Â From 30 November to 2 December 2018, towns and cities throughout the UK played host toÂ pop-up markets featuring some of the best handmade gifts, vintage goods and craft supplies available on Etsy.com, to local customers. All events were organised by a team of Etsy sellers.Â The one I attended was organised by Ideas Birmingham, and the picture above shows the goodie bag I was sent*. I will be writing a post all about the event very soon, so be sure to look out for that! I took my momma and little one to the event, and we had a lovely time. We both picked up some gorgeous goodies that I can’t wait to share with you!
2. Mollie & Me Designs
So in November, I decided to start my own little business! I love teething jewellery and think it is such a fab idea for both mommas and babies. So I decided I wanted to make it myself! Pictured above are the first lot of necklaces I made, taken from the ‘brights’ collection. I love not only how they look, but also how my bubba can safely chomp on them to help with her gums. I’m just going to see how the business goes, but it is a fun thing for me to do and I love playing around with colour combos. If you do fancy checking out more of my designs, they’re over on Instagram and Facebook.
3. Y Not? Product Launch
In November, I was invited to brand new handbag launch from Y Not? in Monkspath, Solihull. They were opening up their showroom to the public for this exclusive launch from Thursday 22ndÂ November-Saturday 24ThÂ November and I was on the guest list! Again with my momma and bubba in tow, we visited the showroom. It was so lovely to be able to look round at the new collection from this brand, as well as some classics too. Again there will be a blog post coming soon, showing you some of the lovely items I spotted. I particularly loved this bag and purse combo!
4. Feeling Festive with Baby Yorke Design
In November I was sent* this lovely jumper from Baby Yorke Design. I absolutely love it! Its slouchy, cosy and has rose gold writing – what more could you want?! I wore it off the shoulder which is a look I rock on a regular basis. I defo need to treat myself to some more goodies from this great brand. Plus they have the cutest baby bits too so I think little lady might be getting herself some bits too!
5. Facial at The Natural Skinn Company
In November, I was treated* to a facial by The Natural Skinn Company and it was just what I needed! I definitely feel that it is important for me to have a bit of ‘me’ time and indulge in some self-care. My treatment was from Valeria and she was lovely. I will be talking about my experience in a blog post very soon.
So these were my November faves. What were you loving last month? Let me know in the comments!
Until next time…
*These items were complimentary. However, they did not ask me to include it in my monthly faves – I just wanted to because I loved them! As ever, all opinions are my own.
