The weather has been much nicer this week so I’ve had a quick trip into Glasgow, a visit to the annual Flower & Vegetable Show and lots of Pokemon-hunting walks. Thanks also for all your surprise box and enamel pin orders – those will keep me busy this weekend! You can still get your hands on one – see below.

News & Reminders
At time of writing there are still 3 Kawaii Japan surprise boxes left so you haven’t missed out yet and can still get lots of new and exclusive things for just £15. There are also plenty Mt Fuji enamel pins to add your collection.
My Kawaii Japan surprise boxes went on sale an hour ago and there are still some left if you want one! They’re full of new and exclusive items that are worth around £32 but you can get for just £15. I’ve even hand-drawn a Fuji on every box.
The main item that’s also available separately is my first enamel pin featuring Mt Fuji! It’s perfect for anyone who loves Japan as much as I do and great for decorating your coat and bag or just for hoarding in a collection. Each pin is made from shiny hard enamel with a rubber clutch to keep it safe and costs £7.
They turned out so cute and I can’t wait to see your photos of them out and about. If you’d like to see more surprise boxes and enamel pins from me in future, please spread the word!
Just a reminder that my Kawaii Japan surprise boxes and first enamel pin will both be available tomorrow! They’ll be released at 11am BST and my mailing list subscribers will get first access. There’s only 25 boxes so make sure you’re signed up if you want to be sure of getting one.
I’m so glad people have started buying party supplies from my Zazzle store – my Ice Cream Cones look so fun on paper cups, plates and napkins that I kind of want to throw a party myself.
You’ll also find them on plenty more cute products for summer including gift wrap, tissue paper and ribbon and the usual tote bags, pillows, mugs and gadget cases.
You can see the full range in my Zazzle store, plus there’s 40% off pillows and 15% off everything else today only with the code ZHOTDEALDAY3.
Part 2 of my weekend up north. My mum and dad both live in coastal villages so there are always lots of pretty photo opportunities. How lucky are these cows to have that view?
We drove down to Pennan one afternoon, which is one of many picturesque little villages on the coastal trails. It’s hidden at the bottom of very steep cliffs.
It has a tiny harbour, lots of quirky cottages and is famous for its red phone box as featured in Local Hero.
It was a bit rainy but still warm enough for a brief paddle!
I was hoping to see the infamous Raft Race in my hometown but sadly it was cancelled because of the strong winds. Instead we went to Dalgetie Castle near Turriff for lunch (and cake!).
The grounds are very wild and full of wildflowers and random outbuildings and statues – and tiny ponies! – so nice to wander around in. We also decided to pay to see inside which was really good. It was properly packed with family portraits and royal gifts and tons of books and random things, including a collection of dollhouses.
I wrote more about it on li.st: How to live life the Delgatie Castle way
You can see all my photos on Flickr. Pretty good break all round.
