So as you've heard, I moved to England, working part-time and cheering my boyfriend on while he plays hockey for the Guildford Flames.

When I was getting ready to move to here, I was SO excited! Nothing else was on my mind and I could hardly wait to get off the plane and explore this beautiful country. 

I created this packing list to help make sure I wouldn't forget a thing. I made it about a month before I had to leave haha. I just wanted to leave right away!

Valentine’s Day is just a few weeks away, and you can feel it in the air! For me, vday isn’t necessarily about being involved in a romantic relationship, but about telling all the special ones in your life that you love them – from significant others to family to friends. Here are a few of my faves for sharing the love!

Valentine's Day is fast approaching and you know what that means... hearts everywhere! Haha. Most people hate this day, but I have to say, even in my single days, I loved Valentine's Day. It is such a feminine day, with sweets, heart shaped anything & lots of pink! No matter if you have someone to celebrate with or you just have a fun girls night planned, make the most of the Hallmark holiday & have some fun!

We created the sweetest (no pun intended) little goodie bags for our friends & family. We came up with some cute sayings & designed some packaging labels to close the bags. With the help of some yummy sweets, a printer, clear small bags, staples & some cute ribbon we were all set!

Brika had a pop-up shop at Yorkdale mall & I swooned over everything in it! This was one of a few cards I had picked up. Ian if you're looking at this, spoiler alert, that's for you. ;) 

You can download our labels right here & print them for your loved ones! If you use them, we want to see! Tag us on Instagram @prettypaperlove.
