Always be yourself … unless you can be a mermaid

Happy Monday to you all. I am so happy to be back with my first card in 6 years! I can’t quite believe it has been that long. It has taken me a couple of weeks to be fair to make my card but it is now finished.

I enjoyed making this so much. The image is just so pretty. It is from my beautiful mermaid stamp set from Simon Says Stamp. This has to be one of my favourite colour combos and I didn't even realise at the time but it matches my new blog colours perfectly ... loving this little bonus!

For my card I have used one of the beautiful mermaid stamps and coloured with my copics. It seems so odd colouring and I need a few refills for my skin tones so I will get those ordered online.


I have added some stickles for a little bling – I just love glitter … the shade is waterfall.

This is something new to when I blogged before ... 3D effects .... press play .... how fun!


I really love the sentiment stamps in this stamp kit … perfect for any age at all. I popped to The Range and Hobbycraft for a couple of bits and couldn’t believe my luck when I found this beautiful First Edition paper pad (Beyond the shore, 6x6) … the colours were perfect and just beautiful mermaidy designs.


Here is a quick video of the crafty things I bought …..

Ok, so time for some challenges … eek …. how exciting. I will add them below when I find some lol.

Have a fab week everyone …. it’s great to be properly back xxx

Slimming World Weigh In Week 3

So Saturday saw my next weigh in. I was actually feeling fairly confident on my way to group this week which is such a nice feeling. My week had been pretty good. My meals were certainly on plan but my treats still need looking at. If I am honest I am not very good at counting my syns and this is something I need to work at.

I am delighted though to have lost 2lbs this week. This is now 4lbs off and I feel that I am back in the swing of things. I have done a quick update video if you want to watch …..

In group we went back through our books and our consultant did the ‘new member’ talk to the group. It was really good to be reminded of the basics. I also picked up some more mint choc hifi bars – oh man they are soooooo good.

I am hoping for another good week. If any of you are trying to be good I would love to know how you are getting on. Take care and see you soon xxx

Birchbox Beauty Box Unboxing | September 2018 | On Top of Your World

Happy weekend everyone. How horrid is this rain!! I am not enjoying it at all. It feels so cold – I even had the heating on briefly last night. Yesterday my new Birchbox arrived to cheer me up. I have had this box on and off for ages and have a bit of a love hate relationship with it. It has been more love recently though so thats good.


If you fancy getting a box and are a new subscriber you can get £5 off your first box by clicking HERE. I also get a little freebie too if you use this link. my refer code is ‘ladymawa’ …..

As usual I have filmed my unboxing so if you want to see my first impressions please feel free to watch my video.

Overall I was pleased with the contents, I am so happy with the blusher plus the other items all seem nice enough so I think it was a good month.


I am just going to take Glen out to my parents for half an hour bless him, cabin fever has set in. I can’t believe it is 6 weeks tomorrow since his accident. He is such a good patient, I feel so thankful he is still by my side.

Right, enough sentimental mush. See you all very soon, have a lovely weekend xxx
