The Greedy book

All the major retailers now have a look book or wish list that you can add too and at Christmas they are a great way to spread the news to your friends and family what you would love at the festive period.

The Greedy Book is the new kid on the block but don’t let that fool you! With its nifty button to add to your search bar when something just right catches your eye you can add it directly to your own  Greedy Book ready for all to see.

Crammed full of inspiration, The Greedy Book is a beautifully presented site over flowing with pretty items ready to get your mitts on. Create your own Greedy Book right here alternatively check out the beginnings of my very own Greedy Book right here .

WHAT IS THE GREEDY BOOK?
Described as the home of the wish list, they’re an amazing discovery platform that provides you with your very own corner of the internet to collate your ultimate wish list, an eclectic mixture of your favourite things. The great thing about this as opposed to Pinterest is that it’s intended for things that you actually want rather than just simply think are pretty! There’s also a whole host of inspiration there if you’re stuck for ideas.
We know what it’s like to have to pull that polite “I love it smile” when inside you know the gift will never be used. The Greedy Book allows you and your loved ones to collate the things you love all year round so that when it comes to the time to buy a gift, everyone ends up with personal, thoughtful gifts and no disappointed smiles.
WHERE DID THE IDEA COME FROM?
The Greedy Book concept was developed by sisters Millie and Charlie, who were inspired by their sister-in-law who kept an actual ‘Greedy Book’, to note down each of her family members dream gifts and favourite trends to make it easier when it came to buying them presents. The ladies wanted to take The Greedy Book concept and expand it online, along with other exciting services, and useful tools, so that no family or group of friends ever has to struggle again when it comes to buying gifts for each other.

Id love to hear about all the pretty things that you would choose!

Poundland Santa Blogger challenge

Poundland Blogger Challenge.
 
 
When I was asked if I would like to take part in the Poundland blogger Challenge, I was really excited to see what goodies I could find, as I’m sure we all do, I love a good browse around our local Poundland as you can stumble across some really lovely items, not just toys and gifts but homewards as well.
So with £20 in my pocket, which in fact I honestly thought I’d struggle to spend, i braved the cold and headed to town, was like Christmas Day!!
I came back stocked to the brim with stocking fillers, craft items, chocolate, wrapping paper and the like!

I got the girls each a polly pocket doll for their stocking, they collect these and the little animals that go with them and they have so much fun with them, and because of their size you can take them anywhere!
The crayons where from making handmade candles at our community centre group, the outcome of that is not to be repeated!

The window clings, snow flakes and scandi stars are just beautiful and have really topped off our christmas decorations!
The fake snow was for making snow globes, also at our community group which now sit pride of place on our fireplace.

I couldn’t resist some goodies to munch on, the bakewells where for my hubby, they where inhaled in less than a day and the Toffifee where a birthday present to myself!
I also bought 3 giant sacks for the girls christmas presents and a roll of matching wrapping paper, 2 bottles of bleach, some glitter and some printer paper.
I had so much fun taking part in this challenge and will defiantly not miss out on checking Poundland for some gifts when birthdays come back around.
