Weekly Roundup

This past week has been a very lovely week for me! 
Unfortunately my orthodontist appointment (the big day!) had been cancelled and rescheduled for Thursday. It was a very exciting day for me as I was getting my braces removed.
Thursday came, and luckily my appointment wasn't cancelled once more. I finally got them removed after a year and a half of constant orthodontic/dental treatments! I am so glad it's over and done with and I can finally smile with confidence. I've literally had so many comments both online and in person and it's left me so overwhelmed! 

After my appointment in the morning of removing my braces and getting a cast/mould made of my mouth for retainers, I decided to go charity shopping with my dad. Something I miss incredibly...
Although we didn't have a lot of luck that day, I did manage to get myself a very cute wintery jumper, some balls of wool AND a very cute vintage teapot! 

Yesterday was spent at Betws Y Coed with my boyfriend before a very quick stop at Llanrwst on the way back. I'd heard of a cute little tea room there (pictured above : the little house covered in leaves!)
I'd been wanting to pay a visit but unfortunately we didn't have enough time. We planned to go yesterday, but settled on a Costa instead! I'm hoping I can go at some point next weekend though!
I'm often thankful of the things I make my boyfriend do. I completely understand he's not the 'let's go grab a coffee and have a chat' type of person, in fact, he doesn't even like coffee, but does it anyway!

Anyway, this week, I really MUST get some things done! I still need to finish my second thrummed mitten. I also want to knit some more for my friends as Christmas presents (yes, I'm thinking of Christmas, because time will literally fly between Halloween and the 25th of December!) I also want to make use of the wool I got from the charity shop, possibly to make some fingerless gloves?
And I MUST MUST MUST post some more on here this week.
Oh, and a Halloween outfit must be sorted, as well as some little party recipes? What do you think?

My mind is literally all over the place!
I hope you've had a very nice weekend! Did you get up to anything interesting?



  1. Congrats on getting your braces off!!

  2. lovely photos and you look so pretty!

  3. Such beautiful photos. Your blog always makes me smile so much as all the things you get up to are right up my street.. vintage teapots and cosy jumpers especially! :) I am excited about doing crafty bits for Christmas too, I just need to learn how to do them all, I'm desperate to do some bits from the Mollie Makes Christmas book! xo

  4. That tea room looks soooo lovely! Would love to go there.
    I am also very thankful for the things my boyfriend does with me, just because I like them! I know for sure he doesn't enjoy looking around craft shops, or even waiting in the long starbucks queu whilst I get my drink. Haha love him!
    That vintage teapot is the colour ;)

  5. Lovely photos, yay to getting your braces off! I've never had them myself, but seeing the satisfaction on my friends faces who did, I can only imagine :) and you have a lovely smile! PS. you're not the only one who's already thinking of Christmas, I've already started my gift shopping!
