The new Evian water advert is hilarious! Anything with babies is pretty awesome, but dancing babies? That’s bloody brilliant!
If I could leave you with one thing as National Stationery Week comes to an end, it’s get writing! Actually writing. Put pen to paper rather than text, tweet or email. While I was at uni, I wrote to friends home and away by hand and kept every single reply I got. There’s nothing quite like receiving a hand-written letter, complete with scribbles and doodles.

You can get a set of four from WillowBoutique at Etsy for £5.04.
Emma Bridgewater is a fabulous designer and has some great ranges. The Black Toast stationery items are my favourites.

Who doesn’t love a video of Ryan Gosling?
A couple of Christmases ago a friend gave me a festive goody bag with various little treats, including a cinnamon Christmas Smencil. They’re rather awesome!
