In store...Monday!

So I very nervously and excitedly went to drop off the stock for the shop I am now selling in, here in Terrassa (Oh Mai Gat! in the centre) and Laura, the onwer informed that the stock will be available from Monday! Yay! I am very much hoping that she decides to make a window display with some of them for Christmas...cross your fingers for me!

Happy Saturday everyone, hope you have a great weekend! x

I'm dreaming of a pink Christmas...

If you've read my blog a few times might be aware that I like the colour Pink. When I say I like Pink...I actually mean LOVE.

Here's some of the new Pink Christmas range! I love these pink felt stocking tree dec's and the pink sign is just adorable. All of these are now available in the shop, along with even more pink Christmas decorations (and the usual red, green and white ones if you prefer, lol). Happy Thursday Everyone! x

In Catalunya on the 1st of November it is the Castanyada. Similar to All soul´s day/Halloween or All Hallows eve, it celebrates the life of the dead. People eat toasted chestnuts, and these can be found being sold on the street almost right up until Christmas from the Castanyada. They also eat Panellets (as pictured) normally a sweet, almondy flavour rich sweet. These ones pictured were given to me by a student of mine for me to try :) How sweet eh?!
Halloween wasn´t ever celebrated, however with the pressure from films and TV (mainly from america and the UK) people are starting to mix the two celebrations.

Just another little insight to my life here in Catalunya! Happy Tuesday folks! x

Happy Halloween!

It´s that spooky time of year again, Halloween!

I love halloween...mainly because it reminds me that Christmas is just around the corner :) Plus, I am a huge kid and it feeds my "kid-ness" :)

This year, I was we organisied a "kid´s Halloween party" at work and painted faces, made masks..etc.. It really got me in the Halloween mood :)

So..Happy Halloween everyone! x
