Friday Favourites – 1st March

March already! How time flies when you’re having fun! March will be a busy month for me as I’m moving jobs and I have an essay that I want to have done by the start of April. Hopefully writing that here will actually force me to do it! This week I have mostly been loving…

Penguins! PenguinsDoes anyone not love penguins? The BBC programme Penguins – Spy in the Huddle has been absolutely rocking my February. I am completely bereft that it’s over, as I was when Polar Bear – Spy on the Ice finished. But I am being comforted by the news that Edinburgh Zoo is launching after hours events, following the path blazed by the insanely successful NMS Lates. The pandas may get all of the headlines, but the penguins are, and always have been the real stars of Edinburgh Zoo. Once I went to the zoo and only one penguin fancied doing the Penguin Parade that day (yep, the keepers ask them) and we all stood dutifully in a line for 20 minutes while he slowly strolled around the course. What a rockstar! Although some of the penguins are on holiday at the moment while their enclosure is refurbed, I’m looking forward to seeing the rest and their sleepy faces on May 26th.

Get your tickets for Edinburgh Zoo Nights here. It’s gonna be fun!

Starsign Cushion free people star sign cushionI’m not a big believer in horoscopes but they do have a certain entertainment factor. It’s also handy to be able to say “Oh ignore my irrational behaviour, it’s just us Pisces’ way”. And even skeptics have to admit that this cushion is pretty cute.

Instapol InstapolJust got a bunch of Instagrams printed via Instapol and I’m so happy with the result!They arrived super quick and are great quality. I’ve got an idea of how to display them and can’t wait to get the supplies together to createย  something. I’ll share that project here ASAP. Best of all, I got these through a deal on Groupon so they were super cheap. Keep your eyes peeled for more.
