Missing you...

So my intentions at the start of 2014 was to blog every week and include the odd You Tube video too, however life then got in the way and along with 30th birthdays, a number of weddings, new borns and  also some sad moments too I just have not had time. 

We had another fabulous wedding this weekend and it feels like I  may finally have some time to share some wonderful gift ideas based on all the above occasions!

To kick start this new blogging spree, I thought I would prepare a Pinterest board of ideas to create a little something for the people in your life you may be missing.. (See what I did there :o))

Fingers crossed this is the start of something beautiful, however I am aware I have said this on more than one occasion.

Welcome 2014

Welcome 2014 and goodbye 2013. Last year was so much fun and although we had a few family drama's all in all everything was A - ok! 

Last year one of my New Year's resolutions  in 2013 was to really concentrate on my blog and youtube channel, to really spend time crafting and updating. I got as far as uplifting the design but the amount of blog posts have been poor and so I am going to try again!

I think in the past a few things have help me back, my day job, my english and grammar and time, but I have decided this year is the year to make things happen and so I will crack on and hopefully my grammar and english will improve along the way :o)

Happy New Year everyone and look out for my vlog coming soon on what I got for Christmas!

Homemade Gifts - Cushion making

Hi All,

So I was lucky enough to help in the making of this little video as part of my day job and I was thinking what a great homemade gift it would be if you could follow this tutorial to make cushions for friends and family.

Let me know if any of you try this out, I would love to see the results.

Father's Day has been and gone..

Morning All, 

As we all know yesterday was Father's Day and so I thought I would share what I purchased for one of the most important men in my life!

Firstly we went for lunch just the two of us to a nice country pub in Essex, while I went for steak and salad, dad enjoyed a full on roast beef.

As every Dad around the country cry don't waste your money on me, we all want to show them how much we appreciate them. This year I headed to the farmers market and with a left over basket at home created a hamper tailored to my dads taste. It included Essex honey and marmalade with whiskey. As a little something extra I also framed a picture of us on my wedding day.

Both of these gifts could be used on birthdays too and gives you the opportunity to create a truly personalised gift and spend to your own personal budget.

Let me know what you got your dad this Father's Day?

Here at DWAB we are massive you tube fans and one day last month while catching you with our favorite vloggers we was introduced to the concept of subscribing to a company who send each month a curated a box with 5 beauty miniatures for you to lather, blend, soak, spray, buff and groom. There seems to be a few site which recommend this service however we decided to try GLOSSY BOX. They also do a wonderful gift subscription for 3 months you friends get a birthday gift that will keep on giving.

We could not wait to sign up and this month we received a wonderful valentines edition, see some of our pics below but to find out more take a look at the Glossy Box blog to find out more on what products we received this month.

We have another box heading our way this month so we will share with you once it arrives.

For the men in your life..

I always find buying for the men in my life always takes a little more imagination however I stumbled on this site early on in the week and I anticipate it will be a massive help in the future.

Aptly named and full of quirky modern gifts it is a site not to be missed Men's Society
