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!

As tomorrow marks one year since Mr T and I officially got engaged, I have found my mind wandering back to that amazing night on a beach in Mexico when he shocked me with his surprise proposal (read about it here). Thinking back to it now, I really couldn’t imagine it being any more perfect and I honestly wouldn’t change a thing… except maybe wishing I was better prepared. I could have packed a handbag with a few emergency supplies like tissues and makeup because I didn’t stop crying for an hour straight afterwards and my face definitely needed a touch up and most importantly I wish I had some deodorant! Nothing quite says ‘YES’ like a big sweaty hug, right?

Fast forward a year and as our wedding planning gets underway, I will certainly make sure I am more prepared for our wedding day. We know we want to get married in summer which means it will likely be very hot and as I know I will be nervous on the day, I can bet my bottom dollar that I will be waving my arms around like a mad woman trying to cool myself down. Isn’t it funny how sometimes the most amazing moments are the ones that make us sweat?

We all have worries about the big day, but one of mine is definitely going to be those dreaded sweat patches! So we are excited to partner with Simply Stylist and Dove on their recently launched, Amazing Moments campaign in which the brand puts its Clinical Protection Antiperspirant to the test during a real woman’s surprise proposal to the love of her life. Dove Clinical Protection offers undeniable wetness protection and has ¼ moisturizers to care for skin.

As part of our collaboration we want to make sure you are prepared for the amazing moments in your life by ensuring you have somewhere to stash all your emergency supplies for your wedding day, especially your Dove Clinical Protection Antiperspirant and what better way than with this stylish clutch.

Wowzer this month of naughty but nice DIYs has made me want to fill my life with sweet treats, and I don’t just mean by eating as much sugar as I can…I mean I want cushions, phone cases and even washi tape with a cute candy theme around me at all times! If you too share this obsession then I have a feeling you’re going to love love love these bits and bobs that I found…

1: This ‘Donut Worry Be Happy’ pillow is what dreams are made of!

2: Give your phone a sweet touch with this macaron phone case!

3: Ok, ok, so I’m pretty sure you don’t need a cupcake ukulele but how could I not include this in the list?!

4: We couldn’t very well get a fancy new phone case and leave our laptops looking dull could we? Plus we all know there’s better than a donut themed laptop bag!
