at my house...

.... we are getting super excited about our trip back to the UK in a few weeks.

On my husband's suggestion that I pop to the dollar shop and grab a couple of travel diaries for his 8 and 10 year old girls, I got myself a bit over excited, bypassed the dollar shop and next thing you know I'm in kikki.K (the goddess of stationary shops)
Check out this journal it is so sweet.

He asked me to spend a few dollars on them. Well $50 might be 'a few' somewhere in the world?
But there are certain things in life.....
....that you can't find at the two dollar shop....

....and some things that should never be left on the shelf. If you were going overseas you'd surely splurge on one of these wouldn't you!?

Pop over here for more housey goings on.


  1. They are adorable! Hey, girls and stationary - I'm sure they will be appreciated!

    Hope you have a fantastic trip. I would love to be visiting London again but I'm sure you deserve it more as it is your home town. Hope it's fun.

    Thanks for joining in this week. Lou.

  2. They are really just a few dollars somewhere !
