Make: When We Made Sushi

veggie sushi made at home

We decided to try and make our own sushi! After going to Wing Yip in Croydon to pick up all of our bits and pieces needed (plus some other stuff – some of which I’ll be featuring on this blog soon) we came back here exhausted so we didn’t make the sushi that day. However, the following day we made it, and it tasted so good!

Sunday Lovin’…. hot, hot hot!!

summer things loving hot weather

The weather is going┬áto be super hot in the UK in the next few days. Those of you from overseas may not find it too bad, but we don’t really have air con here, and aren’t really used to the heat!

Luckily, I live by the sea so it’s nice to paddle in the waves by the beach as a means of cooling down. But sometimes that just isn’t enough! Today it wasn’t super hot here, but everyone still wanted to cool down!

Here are a few things I’m loving inspired by the hot weather this weekend…

Sunday Lovin’–New (to me) Favourite Craft Magazines

It’s not an uncommon fact that I love to read. I have a Kindle, but also like books. I never really read magazines much though, only really for the free gifts they’d have every so often.

Just recently, however, I’ve gotten into 2 magazines that are new to me. They aren’t brand new magazines or anything, but I think they are fab and have me yearning to make almost everything in them!

They are both from the same publisher and you can get some really good discounts on subscriptions for them (which I’ve taken advantage of) complete with an additional free gift! I’ll add sub links underneath each of the magazine descriptions.

Sunday Lovin'--New (to me) Favourite Craft Magazines 2

The first is Mollie Makes, which is a pretty cool and trendy magazine, covering many different types of craft. There are some features with blog links, lifestyle photos, tutorials and patterns, and they give away some fab free gifts. You can subscribe here and you can get a free gift of a jelly roll of Amy Butler fabric.

The second is Cross Stitcher, which from the title you can tell that it is a more specialist magazine, and it features some really cool and younger style of magazine approach. Similar to Mollie Makes, if you will. It contains many a pattern to create some less old-lady style cross stitches, and you can subscribe here-free gift is a selection of cross stitching threads.
