If you’ve heard of Flamingo Paperie but aren’t sure what it’s all about then you might find this answers some of your questions. Flamingo Paperie is still a relatively new company, which rose out of the ashes of Phoenix Trading. It’s about to enter its busy period with the Christmas range launching late August. Now is possibly the best time to join and reap those rewards. But you might be wondering how it all works. Whether it could work for you and possibly even who or what is Flamingo? Well here’s my Flamingo Paperie review after 6 months being an Independent Flamingo Partner with the new company.

In the next month I’ll be collaborating with Megan, from Sandwick Bay Candles. Megan makes soy candles and each month has an exclusive scented candle for her subscription box. In July it was lavender. Subscribers not only received her gorgeous candle but they also got a free card from me too. And in return…well it just so happens that my cards and gift wrap subscription box for September will be garden themed and Megan has kindly agreed to do some tealights, in the same exclusive scent, for my box too! But what’s so good about lavender? Why use it? Well here are 13 uses for it taken from mindbodygreen.com

Mothers Day isn’t very far away so I’ve picked out my favourite Mothers Day Cards for you below. All exclusively designed to deliver a smile to mum on her special day.
My top 5 Mothers Day Cards
Butterfly Tree, illustrated by Kim Anderson
I love this card, it’s glittery and just so pretty. Butterflies can symbolise hope, life, transformation…all things that our mothers give to us. Lots to be grateful for.
Fabulous You!, illustrated by Sophia Coleman
I adore this card, not just for Mothers Day. I firmly believe all teenagers, especially teenage girls should receive this card on a daily basis! What better way to make mum feel special than showering her with compliments.

What is National Bike Week?
Bike Week is an annual opportunity to promote cycling, and show how cycling can easily be part of everyday life by encouraging ‘everyday cycling for everyone’. Demonstrating the social, health and environmental benefits of cycling, the week aims to get people to give cycling a go all over the UK, whether this be for fun, as a means of getting around to work or school, the local shops or just to visit friends. The 2020 event will take place 6-14th June. (taken from cyclinguk.org)

This year I am excited to announce that Phoenix are providing special packs of 7 cards for you to send during Thinking of You week (26th Sept to 2nd Oct).
Normally a pack of 7 cards would cost you £12.25 but these are being made available at a special price of £8.40.
Last year I made my own packs and donated £2 from each pack to my local charity Hebrides Alpha Project. It was obviously such a good idea that Phoenix have decided to roll this out nationally!
