We are living in a digital age where most of our lives are online. With everything we need at the touch of a button, often it’s a lot easier to contact our friends through digital outlets.

Wedding invitations are also available to be created with Paperless Post with collaborative designs by Oscar de la Renta and Kate Spade, Vera Wang. Anyone who has ever planned a wedding will know how expensive weddings are and invitations are no exception to the rule. With paperless post, this can really cut the cost and of course make things easier with just a few taps of a button, you can create elegant designs and email them to your wedding guests.

There are a multitude of templates to choose from for all kinds of occasions, such as gatherings, parties, birthdays, christmas, new baby arrival, hen party, wedding and so much more.

As a nation, I feel we are all trying to do our bit to prevent wastage as we look out for our planet. Thousands of Christmas cards are sent every year, perhaps millions which ofcourse, is a lot of paper. Paperless post are a great way to introduce a digital Christmas card to send to our friends and family to avoid the clutter of cards spread across our mantles and of course the endless wastage that comes with the festive season.

I really enjoyed creating my first card with paperless post. I opted to send a friend of mine a get well soon card as she had been feeling under the weather for a number of days. I found the process incredibly easy as I downloaded the free app which is so easy to use!

I loved the ability to customise the virtual envelope and liner it arrives in.

I feel this ability just helps to make it that bit more personal and unique.

Another feature I found really useful is the ability to track the delivery of your invites or greetings card. You can also see when they have been opened!

I also decided to do some Christmas cards for members of my family and my nearest and dearest. I loved being able to personalise this one with our names on the front to make it a little more extra special! I thought the festive envelope liners were gorgeous too. I opted for the super cute penguins for the inside of mine!

I would definitely recommend paperless post to anyone sending a lot of invites for a special occasion such as a party or a wedding. I also think it would be a lovely way to simply let someone know you’re thinking of them, in a way that’s beautifully created and personalised to them.

You can use their website online or download their free app to get started today. Happy posting!

Christmas Comes Early To Fenwicks Newcastle

Already in the festive mood? ☃️❄️ Here on I’m already in the spirit and we’re talking all things Christmas at Fenwicks 🎄

The instant the temperature drops and the summer is officially over, my mind is already on the festive season. To me, it’s the most magical time of the year, even more so now that I have a little one to share it with. Christmas is the ultimate family time season which makes it even more magical. Yes I know, Halloween hasn’t even arrived yet and my mind is already on festivities but for some reason, this year my Christmas spirit has definitely arrived early.

This week, I had a fabulous day out with my son and my best friend as we checked out the seasonal floor in Fenwicks, Newcastle. It really got me even more in the spirit of things and so I’d definitely recommend checking it out if you’re already feeling it!

In the heart of the seasonal floor is a to-die-for café with enough cakes to eat until your heart is content. The menu is dazzlingly festive with turkey sandwiches and Christmas lattes. There is also a specialist children’s menu, high chair availability and colouring pages for them. I always really appreciate when restaurants and cafes cater for children because as most parents will understand, eating out with children isn’t always easy!

Leo definitely enjoyed getting messy with a cupcake after his lunch before heading off for a spot of retail therapy!

Next on the agenda was looking at the beautiful decorations on display amongst the faux Christmas Trees!

It made me want to start planning the colour scheme for my tree already! This will be the first Christmas in our new home so I’m super excited to start decorating and buying our tree. I’ve already thought about where I’m going to put everything!

The seasonal floor is also filled with gift sections perfectly arranged for each recipient and a dedicated toy floor upstairs is also readily available. I managed to purchase a few bits to put away for Christmas for my little boy so I’m feeling pretty accomplished!

Fenwicks at Christmas really feels like a winter wonderland and something I’d definitely do again! I would recommend the cafe for sure, even just for coffee and cake to take a break from shopping!
