Hello Kitty Party Magazine - Issue 1

If you're in the UK you may have seen the TV adverts for a new Hello Kitty magazine, which has recipies and each issue comes with a piece of a dinner set....the idea to collect the whole set.
I may be 24 but I just bought the 1st issue! You see I am a sucker for both collecting and Hello Kitty. They must have seen me coming!
Though I have seen lots of girls my age buying them in WHSmith. Honest.
I don't think I will buy the whole set, I don't really see myself using napkin rings.
The first issue is £1.99 and comes with a plate (all the next issues will be £4.99) and I noticed that there are atleast 4 of the same plate in the set, so I'm going to buy 3 more issues to get them at the £1.99 price!

Happy Pancake Day :)

I was going to do a Valentines day blog, but bit late for that now. So happy Pancake day instead (which is today!) Not sure if people celebrate this in america or not, but here in the UK on Shrove Tuesday we have Pancake Day ^_^ Usually eaten with lemon juice and sugar or golden syrup. The pancakes are typically thinner and bigger than american style pancakes, more like french crepes. (the title of the blog links to the wikipedia page for more info)

So I thought I would find some yummy pancake related items on etsy to share with you ^_^

I've been featured in my 4th and 5th treasurys! :D

In the space of a month Heroine Industries has been featured in 5 treasurys on etsy!!! It's kind of strange because I hadn't been featured in any, and then loads come at once! But hey I'm not complaining! It's a really nice compliment and I always like to see what the other items are, and how the theme comes together through totally different items.

Unfortunatly I don't have a screen shot of the 4th treasury as it was on the 26th Jan and has ran out. I was a bit pre-occupied with the magazine coming out, and forgot to get a screen shot of it. But I'd like to thank Lisa of gemandicollection for featuring me in her treasury (and if anyone has a screen shot of it I'd really appreciate it?)

And my Pretty In Pink Glitter Packed Ring has been featured in StudioSeventyFive's treasury -> "Pixe Dust Treasury" (which you can see a screen shot of below!)
