Awesome Punky Pins

If I could press the delete button on one month this year, I would pick November 2018. It was a month full of ups and downs (highlight: Yoga Retreat, low point: pressing my self-destruct button and having a 4-day wine-fueled breakdown).  Nevertheless, I survived, I’m still blogging and before I forget the month completely I want to remember how kind and supportive my lovely blogging friends have been.

One of my closest blogging friends, the wonderful Lisa, from Lisa’s Notebook sent me such a thoughtful self-care/pamper box as she knew I was going through a tough time. Inside the box, I received the most fabulous selection of treats such as tea, candles, hand cream, a cute magnet, bath bombs and a brilliant Cats & Caffeine enamel pin from Punky Pins (YAY!). The box was perfect and I was honestly so touched by the kind gesture, no-one had never brought me a pin before plus this was my first ever Punky Pin too!

I loved the pin so much, I decided to expand my pin collection with even more Punky Pins because well they are just so awesome! So thank you Lisa for your kindness and a big thank you to the supportive blogging community – I have had so many sweet messages, I feel so grateful everyday to be part of this.

Cats & Caffeine –  because these are 100% essential items for daily life.

Planner Addict – because who can say no to stationery and polka dots.

Washi Tape – because WASHI TAPE!

Cat Mama – because I talk to more cats than people.

I hope you enjoyed seeing my latest pins from Punky Pins! You can add a splash of awesomeness and colour to your social media by following them on Twitter / Instagram / Facebook. Do you collect pins? What shops are your favourite? Let me know in the comments – I’d love to hear from you!

    I don’t collect pins but these are quite inticing and very attractive! It was so lovely of Lisa to do that for you. There are always days and months that I just wish to get rid of so I get that feeling but what’s more important is YOU – some things happen to make us stronger, at the time we don’t realise it but we end up stronger in the end. You are an amazing person so don’t let ‘life’ make you think differently.

    • December 3, 2018 / 3:41 pm

      Thank you so much for your kind words Soffy, you are so sweet and supportive. I really appreciate that and you are so right, just gotta keep positive. I’m glad you liked the pins too, it was really nice of Lisa, the Cats & Caffeine pin is perfect <3 xx

    Aw, Bexa! Thank you so much for the shout out, and I’m so pleased that you loved your pin and other bits. And that you were inspired to buy even more pins, haha! You are very welcome and I’m very lucky to be able to count you as one of my closest blogging friends too. You are one of the loveliest and kindest people I’ve met (OK, only online so far but you never know) and I look forward to reading lots more of your blogs and social media posts in the future. And, may I remind you, I’m still waiting for your pin collection update post 🙂 So glad you’re feeling better now, and YAY for cats, planners, and washi tape! xxx

      Aww thank you for the lovely comment Lisa! The self-care box really cheered me up, I’m so grateful and yay for new pins too!

Aww yes, it would be so nice to meet one day, fingers crossed it will happen in the future! <3 xxx

  8. December 3, 2018 / 5:53 pm

    These pins are so gorgeous. I love the planner one. I collect all kinds of pins – I’m a sucker for ones featuring brands, characters (both famous characters like Snoopy and Garfield to non specific ones from places like Paperchase), WWE and also charity pins (I go overboard with those ones!). I just followed Punky Pins on Twitter so I’ll definitely have a look at their collections for sale. Thanks for sharing Bexa 😁 xx

    • December 4, 2018 / 5:49 pm

      Thanks so much lovely! I love finding fellow pin collectors! Snoopy and Garfield pins sound awesome, I’ll have to keep an eye out for some charity pins too. I’m glad you enjoyed the post, every time I see a Punky Pin on Insta I just want to buy it, he he! <3 xx

  9. December 3, 2018 / 5:56 pm

    Becca, I never get bored of your blog. It is fantastic. It is colourful, bright and always makes me smile. Love the cat pin. 💚 Xx

    • December 4, 2018 / 5:49 pm

      Aww, thank you so much for the kind comment Kerry, you are so sweet! <3 xx

  10. December 3, 2018 / 6:04 pm

    I LOOOVE PUNKY PINS!!! I’m not going to lie, I can’t usually afford to splash £7 out per pin but they had a sale a couple of months ago where they had lots of pins going for £1-£3 and I grabbed about 6 of them and I’m so in love! They now adorn my black leather jacket. These are right up your street and how incredibly sweet of Lisa to send you one, too! I’m very proud of you for getting yourself through your hard time so far Bexa and I’m wishing you all the love and luck in the present in your healing process. And hey, we all go on a wine binge every now and again… don’t beat yourself up 😉

Ooh, I’ll have to keep an eye out for a Punky Pin sale, it sounds like you got some awesome bargains! I bet they look so cool on your leather jacket. I’m glad you enjoyed the post and thank you again lovely <3 xxx

  11. December 3, 2018 / 6:21 pm

    These pins are so amazing, the bright colours are so fab. Every single time I see your posts with pins in them I just want them all! I love the cat one, that’s all I need in life – a cat and caffeine for sure, or I’d be happy living with about 10 cats! Lovely post as always, I love seeing your pin collection 🙂 The blogging community is so wonderful, and there’s so many lovely bloggers out there including you! It’s great to be apart of it, a little self-care package is a great idea. I hope your December is much better for you <3

    I love when you do these pin posts, they are always really cute and so colourful. The polka dot planner has to be my favourite one as I think it was made just for me! I’d actually just like to stick these in a pin board, loved this xx

    • December 4, 2018 / 7:02 pm

      Thank you so much Aaliyah! I am glad you enjoyed the post! The polka dot planner is so cool, I wish I had that in actual size <3 xx

  16. December 3, 2018 / 9:27 pm

    That sounds like the sweetest parcel from Lisa!! How lovely?! These pins are all so perfect for you. I mean a washi tape pin?? I couldn’t think of anything more ‘you’. She chose so well with the cats and caffeine pin! I love the planner addict one x


    • December 4, 2018 / 7:04 pm

      Thank you so much Sophie! The parcel from Lisa was the kindest thing! He he, yay for washi! When I saw it was available in pin version I knew I needed to buy it. The cats and caffeine pin is so perfect too! <3 xx

  17. December 4, 2018 / 2:21 am

    I have never collected pins but was always drawn to them. I always buy small magnets from different places. But I have to say this Bexa whenever I see pins I remember you. 🙂 These are really cute and pretty. I feel so sorry for the downs you were going through. I hope you are feeling better now. Lisa is so sweet and kind. 🙂 Take care Bexa. Wishing you a fabulous December. 🙂

    We’re all human, and it’s totally natural to have to take a big step back from life and just let everything hit you. Hopefully, you’re feeling a lot better after everything, and I wish you a happy Christmas season, without any low points whatsoever!

    • December 8, 2018 / 1:11 pm

      Thank you so much for the lovely comment Macey, that is so sweet of you! I hope you have a great Christmas too! <3 xx

  27. December 5, 2018 / 12:33 pm

    Aww, what an angel Lisa is. I love these! I saw the cats and caffeine one when I was working on some gift guides for Blogmas, and very nearly purchased it myself. I’ve bought things from Punky Pins before, and always thought they were really great quality. I’m not surprised you couldn’t resist adding to your collection.

    Sending you big hugs, Bexa, and hopes for a better December/New Year. xx

    • December 8, 2018 / 1:27 pm

      Thank you so much for the lovely comment Ruth! I was so lucky to get such a nice box from Lisa, Punky Pins are awesome! Big hugs to you too and hope you have a lovely festive season <3 xxx
