~Be You Tote Bag: I have been all about the library lately, but always forget to bring a tote bag to carry all my books. This fits the bill perfectly! It’s cute and will hold plenty of my summer reads.
~Notebook by Lydia Meiying: An A5 (148 x 210mm) notebook featuring 48 pages. Lydia Meiying is a freelance Pattern Designer and Illustrator based in the sunny city of Manchester, UK. Her designs are stunning and this will be the perfect notebook to keep in your handbag.
~Never Give Up Badge by The Positivity Pages: This is a 38mm square badge with a metal pin back. I love the message and think it’ll be perfect pinned on to the tote bag.
~The Yay Makers x Clarice Tudor Pin: Clarice Tudor is a pink loving twenty something studying art & design at Leeds University. This pin is an exclusive to The Yay Makers and is an affirmation pin to remind you to have hope even when it seems like it’s not possible.
~PositiviTEA Crown / Connect: The crown / connect tea contains Chamomile, Honeybush & Lavender with Valerian. Chamomile helps promote sleep and lavender is often recommended to treat anxiety. Honeybush is soothing and relaxing and has been found to counter headaches, irritability and tension. Valerian has traditionally been used to treat insomnia.
