♥ Planning my halloween costumes for the weekend! At tonight’s party I’m going to be a spooky doll and tomorrow night I’m dressing up as Maleficent!! Horns at the ready!
♥ Speaking of which, I watched Maleficent this week on Sky, I had seen it in the cinema and have been so excited ever since for it to be released! It’s such a beautiful film.
♥ Starting our incubator programme at Bristol to get The Online Wedding Show launched! It’s all very exciting, we’re in the early stages at the moment and have met lots of other awesome people with fab ideas! The months ahead will prove to be very productive! Watch this space!!
♥ The juices on offer at the EngineSheds cafe! Oh my days, they’ve got one that’s fresh mint, lemon juice and honey! It is unbelievably good!!
♥ Eating potato pie! Emily gave me her recipe and it’s the bomb! I love the chunky onions in it and the crispy cheese on top! It’s what we call proper winter warming food!
♥ Cooking up fake blue crystal meth for James’s Heisenberg costume tonight! You Breaking Bad fans will know what I’m talking about! Apparently in the series they just used set sugar with blue food colouring too!
♥ Monday was the first day of the webstart program that we were lucky enough to win a few months back. Myself and Jess have been heading to our new base in Bristol to meet with our mentor, where we have been taking the next steps towards building the online wedding show!
♥ Catching up with my dear friend Sophie who is now 7 months pregnant and she is absolutely blooming! I am so happy for her she is gonna be one hot momma!
♥ Late night walks with Mr T! There is something about the smell of the air in the evening at this time of year. It smells like bonfires, crispy leaves and fireworks!
♥ This week our church held a memorial service for loved ones that had been lost. It was the first time I had ever attended an event like this and I was little anxious about how I would I fee, but it was so comforting. A really nice way to remember loved ones and celebrate their lives.
♥ DIY days with Jess! Making hot chocolate with orange liqueur which was seriously yummy and painting emoji faces on pumpkins!
