Today is global hatching day which is celebrating the launch of the brand new, very exciting and super cute Rainbocorns Series 2! There is a whole new range of magical cuddly creatures to discover and as it combines many of Freya’s favourite things (surprise egg, unicorn inspired, cuddly toy, collectables, stickers to name just a few) we was thrilled to get involved and share our thoughts on the hatching of our Series 2 Rainbocorn!
I was introduced to the Little Brian paint sticks back in September 2018 when I attended the blogging conference BlogOnToys in Manchester. With a little lady that loves to get creative and crafty their mess free, versatile and super fun method of painting which was being exhibited appealed to me instantly! Infact they are still very much a favourite in our craft box and so I was very excited to be given the opportunity to try out the new Little Brian Art Face Paint Sticks which have recently been launched.
Greaterskies create beautiful, high quality custom star maps which will capture thousands of stars, the moon, the sun and the planets, seen from your chosen place, date and time. What an incredible way to cherish those special moments, with a truly unique, personalised keepsake that would make a tremendous gift of the stars for loved ones and a great way to cherish a special time of your own. I was so excited to be given the opportunity to review one of these fantastic prints and celebrate our own special time and treasured moment with a Greaterskies Little star map.
Hiya lovelies, I hope you all had a fab weekend. We had a rather chilled out one which was very much needed. My anxiety has been flaring up quite badly over the past few weeks so some down time was definitely welcomed. I thought I would pop up a little blog update post as I know up until recently I haven’t really been that active on here or on my socials really. I started up My Little Brushneen Blog over 2 years ago now! My first post was publised on the 9th of May 2017! I can’t quite believe how quickly that time has flown by. I had a quick scroll back through the posts and seeing how much little monkey has grown during that time is incredible. On here I share the ups and downs, struggles and triumphs, the smiles, the tears, adventures and day to day and I’m so glad I found the confidence from somewhere to share my little blog. After our miscarriage earlier this year I had to take a step back though and my return to writing was delayed. The longer I took the harder it became to find the motivation or the desire to post anything. I was unsure if I would share the news on here but I just didn’t feel like I could come back and start doing reviews or write about anything else without acknowledging what had happened. For me the need to talk about it was strong yet at the same time I just didn’t know how to approach it or how to start that post.
Some days it will be tougher to put on a brave face, some days will be hard, right now it may feel like most days are a struggle and some times stepping out of that comfort zone will be difficult. Miscarraige is draining, both physically and mentally. Devastating.
Although it may not feel like it right now Time is a great healer.
It is ok to take the time needed to heal, don’t rush. It is ok to have ups and downs, It is ok to feel sad, for tears to fall, It is ok to reach out, to ask for help, It is ok to TALK.
Don’t feel like you have to keep it hidden, miscarraige doesn’t have to be a secret. It shouldn’t be so taboo. Talking, It’s not easy and it won’t solve everything but talking, it can really help.
I’m still learning this too
It turned out to be a rather busy bank holiday for us with a trip to Manchester for the BlogOn conference and then a visit to the beautiful Berkeley Castle to see some jousting and spend time with family. I’ve picked out some of my favourite photos to share in this post.
