Get your hands on it from my Spinster and Spool Etsy shop here or give me a shout for a… Continue reading NEW Beyonce embroidery hoop
I had a hen do in Brighton a few months ago and couldn’t resist this amazing 50s-style mermaid dress from Collectif. They have pretty pink and green hair and make me so happy!
