Off the Record: Money Love, Making Plans & Much More!
PHEW!! Do you ever get that feeling that you wish you had more pairs of hands?? Thats the feeling we have been getting this week. I honestly don’t know how other people manage to get so much done in such a short space of time – if anyone has the secret kindly pass it on…
So October is finally upon us and I have to admit I am little bit excited! This part of the year is so fun with halloween, Bonfire Night, my birthday, Sweden and christmas to look forward too, before you know it will soon be the end of 2013. Lets not forget we also have a 2nd Bespoke birthday party to organise which I am highly looking forward to, more details on that later!
Anywho lets get on with what we have been loving this week…
♥ I really enjoyed Gabrielle Bernstein’s interview with Kate Northrup about her book ‘Money, A Love Story’. I have ordered the book and am I really looking forward to reading it. I would love to change the relationship I have with money as I often find that day to day struggles with money make me forget what I really should be enjoying in life. I will let you know how I get on…
♥ Taking my brothers shopping with me to find my outfit for the Wedding Blog Awards on Tuesday. Men are surprisingly good stylists. It is always fun to spend the day with my little bro’s they are so much fun, I don’t stop giggling when I am with them they are like a comedy duo!
♥ Spending the day shopping with my mum and Dad and being treated to a Wagamama’s. I forget sometimes how much I love spending time with my family!
♥ Receiving a parcel from my best Vicky who lives in Sweden. She is just the sweetest sending me little letters, Swedish chocolate, a travel guide to Sweden and my favourite a little bracelet all the way from Indonesia, where she spent her summer.
♥ Speaking of Sweden I am super excited to announce that Mr T booked our flights for my birthday in December. We will be spending our first few days in Stockholm, then moving on to visit Vicky in Lund and ending up in Copenhagen. It will be a lot to fit into just a few days but I am really looking forward to it!
♥ Rush. The film. I know Emily mentioned this in last week’s Off The Record but I only got around to watching it on Thursday and I absolutely LOVED it!! Such an amazing story and a bit of an emotional roller coaster! I was teary quite a few times throughout the film!
♥ Visiting my friend Sophie’s new house! She’s all settled in and I couldn’t be happier for her!
♥ Receiving Issue 3 of Rock n Roll Bride’s magazine, it’s fabulous and such AMAZING quality!
♥ Tom O Dell’s album, I can’t get enough of it! I’m so gutted to hear that he’s playing in Bristol this month and the tickets are sold out! Anyone not able to make it and fancy selling a pair on?!
♥ Christmas present shopping!! That’s right I said it! I’ve ordered a couple of little bits and bobs off the net this week for a few presents! I really, really, really do not want to get to December and be stressing out about gifts, so if I start now i’ll not only stagger the costs but also more thought is going into each pressie I think!
♥ Planning Bespoke Bride’s 2nd Birthday party!! Wahoo how exciting! We’re going to be inviting everyone who’s supported us over the past 2 years as a thank you! It’ll be a fabulous networking event too! We can’t wait!
