Follow Bespoke Bride on Instagram!
Anybody else feel like they blinked and August happened? Yep. Me too. This month has been an exciting one for us to say the least! Not only did Emily get engaged (yay!!) but we also launched BB crafty club AND are super super close to sharing the boutique with you guys! EEK! Watch this space it’s coming oh so very soon! For now though here’s what else we’ve been loving and getting up to this past month!
♥ Going to the Etsy Wedding Breakfast! We headed up to London this week to attend the most gorgeous flower arranging workshop and got to really indulge in yummy food when we were there too! We’ll be sharing more on this event soon so watch this space!
♥ Rum bar! It’s becoming my new local on the weekend and I absolutely love it! The cocktails there are delicious and I adore the effort that goes in to making the cocktails look epic!
♥ Bristol Balloon Fiesta! I hadn’t been since I was a little girl and it was brilliant to go again and see all of the balloons take off! We took a little picnic and got ourselves a prime seat for the big launch!
♥ Having cocktails with the Costa Sisters! These babes are the absolute best and we always end up laughing our heads off when we’re together! We had such a yummy meal at Las Iguanas (and one too many mojitos!) then headed to Buffalo bar for the most amazing raspberry cream soda!
♥ OMBRE NAILS! I had mine done all different colours this week and I absolutely love them! They’re very my little pony! You can see them on our Instagram!
♥ All of the exciting projects that we’re working on right now! As you already know our brand new subscription boxes are available RIGHT NOW and the boutique will be with you gorgeous lot in a matter of weeks! EEK!!!
♥ Natural skincare products, i’ve been absolutely obsessed with putting coconut oil all over my face and now i’m so excited that someone local to us is launching an entire range of products! There’s a coconut & pumice exfoliator, an avocado & safflower day moisturiser and even a carrot & comfrey face mask, plus loads more! I can’t wait to try them and if you’re all for natural ingredients like I am then you can check it out here!
♥ Of course the highlight of my month has been announcing our engagement!! We have been so overwhelmed with so many messages of love and support! I am so excited to be able to share this journey on our blog!
♥ Another particular highlight has been getting my engagement ring. When Mr T proposed he wanted us to design an engagement ring together! I’ll be writing more about that on the blog soon but all I will say for now is, I never thought I could love a piece of jewellery so much! It is so important to us and I will cherish it forever!
♥ Heading down to the Gower for a long weekend camping. We spent the day doing a coastal walk on the south Gower and ended watching the sun set over the cliffs. It was so beautiful although I really feel as though we waved goodbye to summer that night as the next day the heavens well and truly opened!
♥ Due to bad weather we were pretty much forced inside for much of the weekend so we took ourselves off to the the cinema to watch ‘inside Out! It might be a kids film but it was so good! It certainly made me think about making memories and I have decided to take lots more photos from now on! I don’t want to forget anything!
♥ I might have mentioned once or twice that this month has been a month of big announcements and launching our subscription boxes has been so exciting! We had so much fun curating the first box and I can’t wait for you guys to see what’s in them!
♥ Last but certainly not least we have spent the last few weeks getting our first few suppliers signed up to our new boutique which is due to launch very soon! As we get closer to you guys seeing it for real, I am getting super excited/ nervous but I just know you are going to love it!
