As you might have noticed, I’ve been quiet lately – partly because of my new job but also because I’ve had a bit of a writer’s block. Most of my ideas were either really emotional or just not there at all! So I decided to just wait and see when I’ll feel like posting again. And here I am today, thinking I might share with you a little haul. Because everyone needs to go shopping after they’ve started a new job, don’t they?
