Welcome to the monthly Sparkle List, a round-up of things I'm buying, eating, reading, growing, making, seeing, watching, doing, learning, listening to... It's like a Pinterest board, in words (and some pictures).
Would love to know what you think!
A month of birthdays and Fathers’ Day and uncertainty over shipping times meant we shopped all gifts and cards online with UK based independent businesses to be sent directly to family members.
Shopping small is important to me and supporting these businesses in the time of Covid is essential to keep them going. I want them around when we come out of all this.
This lovely lot sent photos of themselves out and about in their new headbands. I don't have too many words for the joy I feel at seeing these happy faces finding a way to tame their Covid hairstyles while they patiently wait for it to be safe enough to visit the salon.
Here's what they said in their own words:
"I think it’s a mix of new accessories, sunshine, boy back at school part time and new biz ideas! Plus I turn 40 next week! How exciting!!! Thanks for adding a bit of joy to my week!"
"All four headbands arrived and are beautiful! And so comfortable to wear!"
"How am I going to choose? Love them both, thank you! "
Victoria: Awwwww. You all look so smiley and lovely!!
Customer:That's the magic of your headbands!
More headbands have been restocked and new colours and styles are coming all the time! See you over in the webshop.
