My new favourite shop: HOWKAPOW

Valentine’s treats

Happy Valentine’s Day! We’re not normally huge celebrators of this ‘day of love’ as we don’t really think you need a designated day to say ‘I love you.’ But this year I did drop some very heavy hints about some incredible hand-made paper flowers by SweetIzzi I’d discovered last year on Etsy. And luckily for me, Ryan took the hint and ordered me these gorgeous pink roses! Even the packaging is beautiful. Polka dot tissue paper and pink and  ...
