Since beautiful fresh summer flowers seem a million miles away right now we thought it would be nice to add a little colour and floral fun to a plain clutch! You know, just to brighten things up on this dreary Wednesday! (Happy hump day by the way!) This could be an old, unloved clutch that you want to up-cycle or you could grab a bunch of plain new clutches and transform them into great bridesmaid gifts for your gal pals (or you know…just keep it for yourself since it’s so pretty!)

It’s such a simple way to really add the wow factor to this simple accessory and the best news is it requires hardly any materials (Plus it’s super cheap to make!) All you’ll need is a glue gun, a bunch of fake flowers (in the colours of your choice) and a plain clutch! We loved this shade of pink teamed with the white and blue daisy combo!



YOU GUYS! We are so so so over the moon to have been nominated again for the wedding blog awards! This year we’re in two categories and are BEYOND excited about it! We would be so grateful if you could please spare us a couple of minutes to vote here! It would mean the world…

Getting into the spirit of Autumn. The jumpers, coats and scarves are out and things are starting to get real cosy! I think there’s something so romantic about Autumn and Winter! 

Gone Girl. I watched this at the cinema on Wednesday and it was seriously epic. I love a good thriller and this one did not disappoint! 

Catching up with familiar faces at the Wedding Blog Awards and meeting lots of new ones! Sometimes when you have friends in the blogging world it’s hard to see them often because everyone lives so far apart but when we all get together it’s always one amazing party and I always have so much fun! Everyone is so lovely!

Spending silly amounts of time in a photo booth! I just LOVE them though, especially when they have a built in wind machine?! I mean come on! Boothnation knocked it out the park! 

Meeting Henry & Daveed from Choccywoccydoodah! These two were HILARIOUS and loved the photo booth as much as we did!! We’re going to be catching up with these funny fellas next week at the shop in Brigton for a witches workshop! Oooooh spooky!! 

Receiving a congratulations box from Hip Hip Hooray studio!! It was so sweet and colourful and amazing!! Very thoughtful! 


♥ Winning our very first award at the Wedding Magazine Blog awards! I know it was a week ago now but I still can’t quite believe, I don’t think I have ever smiled as much as what I have done this week! It feels so amazing to know that our hard work is being recognised and that you guys love what we do!!

 Drinking lots of champagne to celebrate our win!!!

Meeting Daveed & Henry from Choccywoccydoodah! Honestly these guys made me laugh my ass off and lets not forget to mention how amazing there cake was!! We will be catching up with these guys again next week as we head down to Choccywoccydoodah HQ so keep your eye out for our roadtrip video on Youtube.

Meeting so many lovely people at the awards! We spend a lot of time chatting to other wonderful wedding bloggers back and forth, interacting via Twitter and Facebook and it is easy to forget that many of them are people we have never actually had the pleasure of meeting. Yet Friday night we were finally able to put actually faces and voices to faces and it was fab! They really are the coolest bunch of people and I cant wait to spend even more time with them!!

We had a secret rendezvous with two very lovely ladies in Burford this week. I cant tell you too much but lets just say it is going to be an epic collaboration. I am so excited to get started!

 Eating home made comfort food. The days have started getting colder and darker and it is definitely time to start making some of my hearty favourites. This week I made a veggie chilli and I have had my orders from Jess that today is Cheese and Potato pie day. What is your favourite hearty meal for the winter?
