Wowzer, my first week back at work after being in Mexico for a fortnight, things are full speed ahead and I am loving every minute of it! Me & Emily have been busy creating DIYs this week & talking plans for the future all washed down with a healthy dose of yummy smoothies!

Here’s what else we’ve been loving this week…


Luther. The TV Series, me & James got back from holiday and literally spent 24 hours in bed working through the first 2 series while napping and eating in between! It felt so good to have a real duvet day after the travelling and jet lag, I had never seen it before but now I’m hooked! And kinda scared of the dark again.

Spending nights at friends having a game night! Have you ever heard of the Nasty Horse Racing Game? It’s hilarious, and has the tendency to get kinda nasty in a funny way (hence the name) ! I’d highly recommend it! 

Finding some beautiful pink ombre candles from Primark! Such a bargain and they’re so pretty! 

Looking back on holiday photos and videos! It’s shocking to realise how much you forget, you know, the small things, so I’m glad we took a lot of photos and filmed while we were over there, it makes me feel so happy when I look back on all of the experiences! 


♥ BBQ’s in the rain with friends! There was no way we were going to let typical British Weather spoil our night 😀

♥ Getting a little tipsy! It was completely unexpected and unplanned but those nights are always the best aren’t they?

Getting Jess back and organising some big big plans for the blog and The Online Wedding Show – Lets just say the next few months are going to get crazy around here! 

♥ Picking fresh Blackberries and apples from my nans orchard and baking the most delicious crumble. Just for good measure I also baked a strawberry and apple and oh my, oh my, it was delightful!
