Monthly Finds: August

August has been a great month, filled with so many lovely things I found and bought, all thanks to Etsy :D

Laptop Cover

Starting off with the fact that I’m going to be attending university for the next four years of my life soon, I got myself this spiffy laptop cover that I loved because of it’s simple & unique pattern :) I’m also loving the button closure, as it gives it this “envelope” look. And it has an extra pocket in the front to hold any extra things you may be carrying like an agenda/journal, pencils or even an iPad in my case :P I got it from Bertie’s Closet and she has a big range of other cute designs like this one! Pay her shop a visit!

Hoodie Phone Case

Splashing Koi is another Etsy seller than sells a multitude of those mini hoodies for when your phone gets a little chilly :P Don’t neglect it.
That tiny zipper is just so cute! Perfect gift for those who absolutely love hoodies :) Picture is from the store page!

Pressed-Flower Necklace

Now this is one heck of a unique store! myFlowerVillage sells jewellery that contains real pressed flowers of all kinds. Way better than the average flower bouquet, because this one is guaranteed not to spoil and wither ;) I got this forget-me-not necklace for a friend dear to my heart <3 This picture was taken from the store page.

This one awesome Needle Felting Kit

Now I know I haven’t been very “crafty” lately, but surely this new product that just arrived today will get me back on track very soon :3 My all new Needle Felting Kit that I ordered from SweetGorgeousThings! I’ve seen dozens of needle felted goods around the internet and fell in love with how intricate and realistic some of them look. I couldn’t afford not starting my own line of felted goodies, and I can’t have a better start than with this complete set that includes all these pretty wool colours, a set of needles and a foam pad! Expect tutorials soon~

I used my weird boxed drawer that I thought would never come in handy to house all my balls of wool :) Yay!

If you don’t know what needle felting is, read this and look at the pictures below to get your creative juices flowing~ I took these pictures mostly from DeviantArtists’ accounts who are brilliant and deserve lots of good feedback on their work! Click on each picture to visit each artist’s page!

As I mentioned in my previous post, I’ve also bought the LocoMotion cat toy for Tiny but there’s no need to repeat that :P

Thanks for reading and check back next month for another Monthly Find!

Monthly Finds: June

Good Afternoon!

Today’s blog post will contain random items and stuff I found over the coarse of the previous month of June and a little of July. I’ll call it “Monthly Finds”? Sounds good to me. I might do this every month, depending on if I actually find stuff worth telling you about, or I might not. We’ll see what happens.

Let’s start with…

Shoes ♦

These babies are all from New Look! And surprisingly they’re comfortable! I haven’t actually worn them too much yet, but they’re not those hard aching cardboard kind you find in usual clothing stores that sell shoes. So cute, aren’t they?


Books

Not very new, but I got my hands on 2 novels: Galagolia by Dubai Abulhoul (Which I’m planning on reviewing after reading) and Paper Towns by John Green. And I also got myself a new flaming red Moleskine Agenda. No big deal :P

Video Games ♦

50950Good God I love this picture ffff ಥ_ಥ

If you know me, then this is obvious. One of the all-time best video games I have ever played was Naughty Dog’s newly released action/survival game, The Last of Us. I cannot even begin to describe how beautiful that game was. I myself hate the action genre (Yes, I hate COD) whether it’s a movie or a game. But this game is so story driven and dramatic and the action just makes it even better! I was so emotional after it had ended that I wouldn’t dare rate it lower than a 10/10. I know you’ve probably heard or read this already, but the graphics are exceptionally amazing to the fact that my dad loved watching me play because it was “like watching a movie” to him xD Recommending this to….everyone lol. Except kids though.

♦ Attire ♦

I’m only going to be sharing those that actually win my heart xD Look at this beautiful cat sweater! A gift for a friend with the same exact cat but with much more beautiful eyes ;) I’m a sucker for anything cat.


And this is the back ♥


I love that “messily done” look it has :P

That’s all folks! Stay tuned until next month’s Monthly Find!

Until next time,

Reem AlHashmi
