Weekend Friday Favourites

I hope you’re having a great weekend! This week’s been another week where I’ve felt like I need 3 of me so I haven’t dropped by as much as I’d have liked. I’m hoping from next week I can stop by more often now I don’t have as many dentist visits or extra errands. I stopped by to collect my new retainers this week (I managed to snap my top retainer the week before) only to not be able to remove the top retainer! It took the dentist about 20 minutes filling it down until I could remove it easily. I think I tested his patience as every time he filed it down for me to try again I was, seriously I can’t remove it!

Anyways, Weekend Friday Favourites, things that have made me smile or caught my eye this week. New retainers didn’t make the cut.
