Friday Hi-Fives: Sing-songs, Satchels and Shopping Lists

satchels and shopping lists

Since our last hi-fives, I can happily report that we are now officially moved into the new flat (AKA the #rainbowpalace). We handed back the keys to our previous home and it all feels very REAL today! We’ve started to get the place looking the way that we want it and I’ve unlocked a door of inner interior design geekery that will not be closed – I love it! Many of you have been asking for me to do an ‘apartment tour’ style blog post, and don’t worry – it will come very soon! In the meantime, I’ll be keeping you updated and dropping sneak peeks over on Instagram and Twitter

Outside of the flat, I’ve had a pretty busy (but fun!) week. I’ve enjoyed girly coffee dates, birthday burgers with my brother and I’ve also hit up a couple of awesome events. I popped along to the launch of Penny Black on Great Western Road (but MUCH more on that next week…), and was wowed by beautiful bags at the Cambridge Satchel Company’s pop-up in Royal Exchange Square. Hubba, hubba!

This weekend it’s Small Business Saturday, a perfect opportunity to discover and support amazing indie creatives and companies – either in your area or online! I’m always excited to discover new businesses doing fantastic things, so if you come across anyone new give me a shout! Speaking of independent designers, my girl Silvia from Chouchou dropped her exclusive new collection today and is commemorating with a gorgeous giveaway, find out how you could win a luxury hood here.

Let’s keep on celebrating and keep the good vibes going to Monday and beyond! Here’s who (and what!) gets my hi-fives this week:
