July Favourites 2014

It’s time for another favourites post to share what I’ve been loving this month.

New camera! Before this one I had the Canon EOS 400D which is around 8 years old. I think I had it for about 6 years and I learnt a ton about photography in that time. There’s always more to learn though! (I recently took a course and I’m starting video editing in Sept!)

My new camera is the Canon EOS 1200D which has video capabilities. All my previous lenses fit and I was able to get a good deal with a free tripod and camera bag too.

Staying on the camera theme, I got this cute little case for my Fuji Film Mini Instax to keep it protected.

It bugs me that it is a different shade of pink to the camera though! I guess that’s the risk with buying online.

A fellow blogger and I did a parcel swap recently and in mine was this fab bicycle cup from Sainsburys. I’ve been using it non stop.

A friend shared a fab geeky cross stitch shop with me this month and I couldn’t resist getting a pattern! You can find a huge selection at Clouds Factory here. Goodness knows when I’ll have time to sit and stitch!

I feel like I’ve been searching for a decent glue runner forever. The ones in the US are so much better. I found this super sticky Crafter’s Companion one in Hobbycraft but it’s also available on Amazon. Stationery makes me happy alright?!

I’ve been enjoying the odd sweet treat lately and my lovely cat sitter and dear friend Lucy left these macarons in my fridge for our return home from holiday. WHAT AN AWESOME PAL! Oh and I don’t share macarons. Sorry peeps they’re just too good.

Another sweet treat G and I have been enjoying is Pocky. I found some cool flavours we haven’t tried before on Artbox whilst shopping for stationery. Thumbs up for the milk ones (I absolutely hate banana so G scoffed those).

A bit of a random list of favourites there! I am conscious that a lot of my favourites are ‘things’ and I am aiming to live in a less materialistic and cluttered home, so I’m having a clear out this summer. Keep your eyes peeled for some eBay and Depop goodies on sale soon. Crafters especially, as my stash needs cleansing.

Toodles!

  1. Love this list! I want a Fuji Film Mini Instax but I never seem to get round to getting one! Lovely case though! Mind you, I wouldn’t complain at upgrading my Canon either! Mine is only a couple of years old so it would probably be a good investment just to upgrade my lenses. I need James here for that though…I haven’t got a clue what I’m looking at when reading the technical specifications!

  2. I have never seen that Totoro pattern before, it’s so fun! I am such a huge Totoro fan!

    I have that same Instax case, but I have the yellow camera! It fits really nicely and I like that the cover comes off, I do want to make a new strap for it because I wish it was a tiny bit longer.
