DIY Knotted Hair Ties

Sorry for the delay in posts, I’ve just come back from London where I attended Food Blogger Connect (more on that in the next days) and unfortunately fell ill. Now I am trying to get back in the swing of things! :) I’m also trying to figure out a posting schedule to be more consistent.
