Se7en’s Fabulous Fun #302 and GiveAway Winners…

January 20th, 2016 · 6 Comments

We are back in school… it took a while and we took it slow, but we have found our rhythm. I seem to be embracing slow blogging, it may have something to do with the volume of books I have been reading – there is some sort of a book reading binge going on over here, it started small but it is turning out to be huge… I predict a reading post in the next week or two.

Otherwise, we have been posting away on instagram… because it has simply been too hot and windy to do much else. Not to mention so much email… clearly while we took a break the world decided to drop us an email, I guess I am getting to it, but right now my gang wants to be swimming and so I am spending my afternoons beside the swimming pool, not wanting to waste a moment of summertime… no offence, but email can ever so slightly wait a little bit.


Lovely Links from This Week

Ronél: Jan 13, 2016 at 10:56 pm I love looking back through my old diaries and remembering all the fun stuff I would otherwise completely forget! The pink would make a lovely gift for my niece.
Alex: Jan 12, 2016 at 8:44 am I would love the blue diary 

We would like to thank MapStudio who supplied us with diaries to review. We were not paid for the review and the opinions expressed in it are as usual, entirely our own.

That’s us… Hope you all have a fabulous week!!!

    Thanks Christi, It’s been a slow start to the year… and reading blogs wasn’t really part of it!!! So it was a bit of a hunt to find the best of the rest!!! Hope you have had a good week!!!
