Splashes of pink here and there

Hello bloggy friends,

I hope your week is going well : ) So far mine has been excellent. I am applying for two school jobs so that is something to feel positive about. Obviously i'm not going to get my hopes up too much (as they've been let down before)...BUT..I have a good feeling.

I've been meaning to tell you that I have begun to do some voluntary work. My boyfriends sister is a Brownie Leader. So now every Monday evening I help her out and have lots of fun with the loveliest bunch of girls :D It is a great feeling knowing you are contributing to the community! Now I'm searching for blogs that have great ideas on fun activities for children and as a result I have also discovered some fun new people!!! YAY : )

Continuing my love for pinky/peachy colours I thought I'd share some pictures from these last few days...

(Me & my sister...we are a pinky shade as it was a COLD day yet we had ice cream....don't ask lol)

Pink is pretty when it is used correctly! I currently own lots of various shades of peachy/dusky pink items...I'm obsessed I tell you!

Do you guys have a favourite colour? I really love reading your comments so don't hold back if you fancy a chit chat : )

  4. Many years ago(!) I was a Brownie leader, and really enjoyed thinking up different things to do, games, craft etc. There used to be several helpful books with ideas especially for youth clubs/Brownies etc.
