Off The Record: Busy Bees, Brilliant Boyfriends & Broccoli!
My oh my! What a week we’ve had! We’ve been busy visiting old friends, attending awesome events, creating our first ever YouTube video, planning our 2 year old birthday party and to top it all off we were listed as one of Channel 4’s top 10 wedding blogs!! Yep…That’s what I said, Channel 4! How exciting is that?! I’ve gotta say, Wednesday was by far one of the highlights of my week! Sure, it had it’s lows like city driving (seriously! This country bumpkin is a nervous wreck in Bristol! lol!) and reverse parallel parking into a space while cars sat waiting for me to hurry the hell up so they could continue on our journey! But despite those minor ‘bumps in the road’ it rang so true to me on Wednesday that you cannot underestimate the importance of getting away from your laptop and spending some quality time with people! We met up with Isabel While from Bridal Styling in the morning to chat all about what’s been going on (and of course we gobbled down a lot of biscuits and tea!) then we spent our afternoon over the gorgeous Emily Fisher’s house from Fishee Designs where we started planning our Birthday party for next month (eek!) and were treated to a delicious evening meal! If that wasn’t enough for our day we then headed over to Little Wedding Space for the evening to attend the opening of a mini wedding fair that lasts two weeks! So, if you can’t quite make it one day, fret not! There’s plenty more days to pop in and see Little Wedding Space and all of it’s fabulous exhibitors along with it!
That’s not all we’ve been loving this week though! There’s so much more…
♥ When Emily is tipsy on champagne! She becomes even more hilarious and constantly insists on getting a McDonalds! (hey, who wouldn’t?!)
♥ Getting a visit from my friend Matt who lives in London! There’s nothing like a good old catch up with someone you haven’t seen for months!
♥ Cooking home made fish fingers and lemon mayo dip! It was delicious! Not to mention, pretty healthy!
♥ Having a boyfriend who is always very happy to support me in whatever I do, he’s so bloody helpful, understanding and supportive!
♥ Doing our first ever work shops at a wedding show! We were at The Vintage Wedding Fair, exhibiting and teaching brides a few DIY tricks to create a wedding day even more personal to them! Such good fun!
♥ Our new branded Bespoke Bride backdrop that made its first appearance that Designer Vintage Bridal show last weekend.
