So as I’ve mentioned before, I’m doing a charity night to raise money for a treatment centre for patients with leukemia and lymphoma (like myself) at the hospital where I’ve been treated.
I’ve set up a Just Giving account here. I know it’s almost Christmas, but if you could check it out, reblog, donate, whatever you fancy really, I’d really really appreciate it.

It’s nearly Christmas!
Did you know its 20 days until Christmas? Exciting! Have you thought about what presents you are getting everyone?
I personally love that part of the season, thinking carefully about what to get all my family and friends. It is such a rewarding feeling to see someone so happy after spending such a long time choosing the perfect gift.
I’ve been trying to conjure up some unique ideas for my parents this year. It is hard being a student; the little money I do earn soon disappears.
Spending a little time
Nothing beats a personal gift though right? I know I love getting handmade presents or those with a little extra thought put into them.
So, my parents are away in Australia and New Zealand at the moment and after scanning through Disaster Designs on Google again for inspiration I found the best gift yet.
This photo album from The Rainbows End really made me smile and I couldn’t help but think it would be the perfect gift for them to treasure their traveling memories.

At £19.99 it really is a great price. I love Disaster Designs (did you know that? Ha) but sometimes, sadly, the prices can be a little steep. However, despite this attractive price tag I thought I’d have a go at making one myself.
Spending a little time.
I have taken a lot of the ideas from the album above; country chic, travels and nature. This is what I came up with. How do you think I did?
Has anyone else tried something similar before? Please leave me your thoughts!

Unfortunately Disaster Designs does not have a stand alone store or a website for the public as they sell through wholesalers. Due to this I thought I’d compile a small list for you. Here are places I have found that you can pick up some of their beautiful products.
High Street Stores & Boutiques:
- John Lewis
- House of Fraser (not online - just in store)
- Lilac Rose Boutique
Check out any of your local boutiques - this seems to be a hot spot for Disaster Design products.
You can find Disaster Designs on hundred of websites simply by browsing on the ‘Shopping’ tab in Google. Here are a few of my favourites
Please leave a comment adding any places you have discovered so we can all share!
