2 Weeks in Awesometown // Including Two Giveaways!

Writers block. Mental block. Mind Blank. Call it what you want but this week I have it bad. Unable to focus on one thing at a time I have been spending my time in an unproductive manner. As result, my Pinterest followers have increased but my day to day routine has gone to the dogs. But I have decided not to feel guilty about it, and when everyone in our household is still alive and fed, it can’t be all bad right?

Luckily an unproductive week can result in some very productive ‘research’, so here are a few goodies I have come across that might just rock your world…

When I first started Paper & Lace, my mission was to find Kiwi brides objects to buy and fabulous vendors. Somewhere along the way I got sidetracked, and so it is time to return to my roots. There are some very exciting things going on behind the scenes at P&L to make this happen, but to feed my need right now I have created four Pinterest boards with items actually for sale (most of them based in NZ).

Simply click on the item you like and head through to the website and bobs your uncle! (you can buy it).If you know of something you think should be included please let me know. Check out these fresh babies here
