Another year, another notebook. I'm a list girl - to do list, packing lists, blogging lists, shopping lists. I like to keep organised and a notebook is essential. Getting my hands on a notebook with my favourite photo and my name etched across the front is even more exciting. I love the font on the front, my little quote on the inside, the colour theme, even the quality of the paper. I'm looking forward to using this everyday. As far as cost goes, just over £10 for a personalised notebook isn't bad in comparison to some stationery in Paperchase.

I mentioned on my post that my boyfriend's mum wanted a photo collage from our American adventures. I was inspired, and with a future house in mind, I order one the the snapshot photo collages in a heart shape. I went for a random selection of photos, mostly of my boyfriend and I (considering it'll be for our house). Some of the photos were quickly downloaded from Facebook and some were the original copy. You can't really tell the difference which is fantastic. All of the photos are clear, high quality and well coloured. This was a bit more on the pricey side costing just over £45. I think there's more affordable options available but this is quite a unique design and high quality printing. At 16" x 16" it'll be quite a feature on a wall somewhere in my non-existent house.

The foil-pressed pictures on Minted looked lovely but a lot of them were American themed. I couldn't resist getting one and after featuring it in my Minted Wishlist I took the plunge and ordered a Christmas themed reindeer name design. It's a shame this can't be up on my wall 365 days of the year but at least I've got a gorgeous  (slightly more sophisticated) Christmas decoration ready for next year. £20 isn't too bad for a foil-pressed piece of art work and the quality of the work is fantastic. 

As for the delivery from, I placed my order on the 16th of December and it arrived on the 24th of December. Pretty impressive considering 2 of the items were personalised AND it came from America. Postage only cost £6.50 which isn't too expensive in comparison to the price some British companies charge.
