Peachy ripples 

I have been wanting to try out some new crochet techniques so using the Attic24 neat ripple pattern I worked up this super cute peachy toned baby blanket for my niece. 



The colours I used were:

  • Stylecraft special DK – Apricot 
  • Hayfield bonus DK – cream
  • Hayfield bonus DK – punchy pink 

I love how this has turned out, and I’m looking forward to making more ripple blankets.

My little box – May edition

One of my favourite little treats to myself every month is the arrival of my subscription box. I have been subscribing to My little box for over a year now and I love it!

This is a French based beauty and lifestyle box and every month has a different theme.

I thought I’d share the May edition – the Dolce Vita box – an Italian themed box, the packing is always so pretty.

Inside this months box there were a couple of lifestyle items, a cute ring which is a really pretty leafy design and a turban/headband which I doubt i’ll use much unless its to keep my hair out of my face when applying makeup.

also you get a selection of beauty products in a canvas bag, a magazine and an artwork card.

The perfume is La Fille de L’air – Its quite strong when you first apply but settles quite nicely – not really one I would wear all the time, but perfect as a handbag sized perfume for emergencies!

There is a body oil by Baija – Green tea and jasmine scented and this is my favourite item in the box so far, I found it lovely to apply and found that the scent lasted well.

There is also an illuminating moisturiser for legs, this has gradual tan in and a nice lemony smell, I have not used this one much yet so haven’t seen the tanning effects of it.

Overall I really like this months selections and I think I’ll use most of it.

Cute and cosy crochet

Hi guys, 

It’s not really the weather for hats at the moment but as I have a brand new niece I thought I’d expand my crochet knowledge and make a cute hat for her along with an appliqué flower! 

  

The patterns I followed were:

Stitch n ting simple crochet baby hat

Bella coco easy crochet flower video

I used grey yarn from the WI range at hobbycraft which is beautiful and soft to work with, the pink was from some oddments I was given so not sure which brand. 

Both tutorials were super easy to follow and I’m pleased with how the hat turned out, can’t wait to see what it looks like on little one 💕
