Think Pink October Favourites

October is Breast Cancer Awareness month and all about thinking pink. We love the awareness campaigns around this time of year and I was particularly impressed with this month’s Birchbox collaboration alongside UK Charity Coppa Feel, getting the message across that ‘knowing your boobs could save your life’- they have it in one!

Easy Entertaining: Ice Cream / Sundae Bar

IMG_7213There is nothing better in the world than being served a dessert that you can customize yourself.

Sweater Weather: Sweater Shop AW Preview
