Okay, #characterbrunch could not have been more fun and exhausting. The kids had a blast, and so did we! Big thanks to these two for helping me put everything together! I love y'all to the moon and back. #thebest #thefaithfulfew #Anna #Aurora #Dorothy #Frozen #SleepingBeauty #WizardOfOz
It was a Monday morning, the skies were grey, the train windows were steaming up from the warmth of the commuters inside and the cold rain blowing against the outside - yet I had a smile on my face. My Monday morning commute into London has brightened up since I started watching Hannah Maggs’ YouTube channel. Hannah, her husband Stef and their son Grayson form The Michalak Family Video Diaries, they video log their day to day activities and cut it into one video that is uploaded every Sunday.
There is something so warming and heartfelt from each video that just leaves me feeling happier about my day and about how I want to live my life. Their profound attention to detail is delightful and the music is calming, reflective and it makes the videos come alive.
Hannah runs a beauty blog and has also expanded into her own business of selling beautiful make up bags, Maggs London. She hand picks fabric from Liberty and the bags are handmade in Soho. I’ve loved each design that Hannah launched and each bag has a well thought out name; unique to how Hannah feels about the pattern. I finally decided on one that I really liked and made my purchase.
Each bag is handmade by a professional seamstress in Soho. The stitching is good and the bag looks and feels lovely. The little details on the packaging, the cute label and stamp on the brown wrapping really show how proud they are of the product they’ve launched - I am very pleased with my bag. I am currently using it as a little manicure bag and I hope to make another one my own. If you watch Hannah’s YouTube channel you will know that she is currently preparing some special Christmas wrapping. I would be over the moon to receive one of these in my Christmas stocking - they would make a great gift!
Thank you Hannah, Stef + Grayson for spending most of your time creating such wonderful videos. You have created a time capsule for you and your family and I thank you for letting us share it with you.
I thoroughly recommend having a look at their YouTube channel, it will make you laugh, smile and it will leave you feeling warm and fuzzy inside. Here is one of my recent favourite videos: Camping & Crawling.
