Eek! Halloween is on our doorsteps and I am so god dam excited! I LOVE halloween! This year me and Em are heading to one of our favourite bars to end this month with plenty of cocktails! It certainly has been an epic October for us with the launch of BB Boutique, winning the award for Best DIY Wedding Blog & starting our pre crowd funding campaign so there’s PLENTY of reasons to celebrate! Here’s what else we’ve been loving this month…
♥ My sister coming home!! She’s been in the US for 5 months working and travelling and basically having the time of her life but I am SO happy to have her back! We surprised all of the family with her return and it was so amazing seeing their reactions! Needless to say there was lots of tears!
♥ Winning Best DIY wedding blog for the second year in a row! EEEEEK! We are so so so thankful to everyone that voted for us, we work really hard on our tutorials and it’s so amazing to see the love return and know that you guys enjoy them as much as we do!
♥ Catching up with our fellow wedding bloggers & industry faves at the awards! We had so much with Festival Brides, Mr & Mrs Unique, The Wedding Bazaar, Choccy Woccy Doodah, Binky Nixon, The Bijou Bride, the list goes on! It’s always so fun getting all dressed up and celebrating each others success!
♥ The launch of the boutique!! I couldn’t not include this could I?! After years of hard work it finally went live filled to the brim with amazing suppliers and we couldn’t be happier! There are more and more suppliers being added every week so be sure to keep your eye out!
♥ Spending a few days in Wales with James, we went to Snowdon a couple of years ago and had such a lovely time that we thought it would be cute to head back to the same place! So we took the road trip down and stayed in a lovely little pub with a roaring fire! It was the perfect little autumn/winter getaway.
♥ Watching Years and Years! We saw them at Birmingham and they were bloody brilliant! I am so obsessed with their album and it’s so good to see someone local to us doing so well in the music industry!
♥ Ahhhh!! There are so many things to talk about! Firstly we launched BB boutique and it has been epic!! The site had thousands of visits on its first day and the response was phenomenal! How can we ever thank you for your support? I can’t wait to see where this little venture of ours takes us next!
♥ As if we hadn’t shouted about it enough! We won ‘Best Wedding DIY Blog’ at the Wedding Blog Awards. As Jess said, we absolutely love working on our tutorials and we are just so thrilled to hear you love them just as much!
♥ Getting ready for Halloween! I have made giant spiders out of balloons and streamers and gone a little overboard with the fake cobweb stuff. Next up are the pumpkins!
♥ Movie night with my little bro in his new house!
♥ Pub Grub, wine and gossiping with old friends! We might not see each other as often as we would all like, but when we get together it’s just like old times!
