Tuesday Treat – #30DaysWild

One of the best things about having a dog is that it makes you go out and find new places to walk throughout the year. It’s through dog walking that I’ve really started to see the world around me and all the wonderful things sharing it with me. Yes, I’ve even started to get excited about seeing new birds and insects that I’ve never seen before! When was the last time you stopped and enjoyed nature? Trust me, it’s good for the soul. Taking part in BBOWT’s 30 Days Wild is a great opportunity to get out and explore the nature around you. It won’t take long before you’re appreciating the world around you. Here are some wild things I enjoyed on Sunday.

Lake Bee Grebe

You’ve got to be out there, exploring, to really get the most of what’s around us and boy there’s a lot out there. Whether it’s something as simple as watching the bees getting pollen of the lavender bush in the garden, waiting for my peonies to bloom or trying to spot a cuckoo in the tree, getting out and making a bit of time for nature does wonders.

Tuesday Treat – Magpie

Well, who would have a thought that a week later the sun would still be shining?! How great is the weather we’re enjoying in the UK? Long may it last too! But as much as I’m enjoying it, I’ve found something extra special for my Tuesday Treat this week: Magpie. I’ve only recently discovered them but I am so pleased I have!


You will be familiar with some of their other designs as they work with different people including Mini Modern. But that’s not all! Not only do they design and work with amazingly creative companies, but all the products are vegan and ethically sourced.

I love the Woof! range the most, mainly because it’s got Percy the Dachshund on it & looks a lot like little Poppy. How very cute! I love the A to Z range too. The lettering and colours are just awesome! I would love to have the C notebook & I am thinking about adding it to my notebook collection. The only trouble is that I want all the products in all the designs! I’d love them to start doing butterflies too, as my butterfly obsession is growing & think they’d make an excellent addition to my collection.
