Dress c/o Sugarhill Boutique| Cardie & Boots from Primark

I've been wanting to get down to a Bluebell woods since the photos scattered on instagram has made my heart skip a beat, I just love flowers, and even more long walks with Sam and Sev- actual perfection ♥

After Sam managed to get an afternoon off on Sunday, I knew it was now or never, before the pretty blues would disappear for the year. The weather was warm enough to wear a pretty skirt, pop on a pair of boots and don Sevvy in his bow tie for some photos of him too....obviously.
I got to wear my pretty floral Sugarhill dress, it's a new style they have for the Summer and I just adore it. It's so perfect and I'm already excited to style it up again when it's even warmer. The material feels so lovely and the print is just dreamy! I just about managed to pop my hair in milkmaid braids and I felt fresh and free in the open air on a Sunday afternoon.

My Weekends of Weddings start on Saturday, with a close friends wedding. I have a beautiful grey dress that I'm hoping to wear. I do hope I'll be able to share some snaps and maybe even a YouTube video with you, lets all be ready for Wedding season together.

Last week I had the pleasure of visiting Cotswold Wildlife Park, we got late entry and went at the perfect time when everyone was going home but the sun was still shining bright in the sky ♥
As well as seeing the giraffes (they're my favourite) and Sev eyeing up the penguins (Cotswold Wildlife park lost it's zoo status when they wanted dogs to be allowed in the grounds) I was actually there to complete a challenge with PayPal- and what a fun challenge it was! 

#DoItWithPayPal is showcasing how easy and simple it is to buy with PayPal on so many online shops and stores. Log in and a click of a button allows you to pay for your item and get it delivered where ever suits you best. So easy that it seems I end up buying a little too much each month....maybe because PayPal comes out of the joint account, but that's another story! 

Don't worry, I didn't spend all my time searching my phone for things to buy, and making lists of even more things I need. I enjoyed the beautiful gardens, seeing Sev react to animals he'd seen for the first time, saying hello to the 7 week old Rhino- Ian and seeing the giraffes so close up we could touch them....even thought we weren't allowed.
When it came to it though, knowing I could pop on to Jessops and buy a camera lens (perfect for our next trip to the park) with no hassle and super quick made everything easy and I felt a lot safer with my details on line too- You really can do it anywhere with PayPal.

Jumper from Primark| Skirt from eBay

It seems a billion years ago that we stayed at Buckland Tout-Saints, the gorgeous dog friendly hotel in Devon that we had the pleasure of staying in for a couple of nights. I feel like it's been a whirlwind of business since then.

The weather has been a little up and down lately, from glorious sunshine- who was lucky enough to have Wednesday off work? To rain, wind and horrid grey skies. This pretty outfit comes to you from a sunny day, and as I can see the sun has his hat on today, it seems totally right.
When Pinterest becomes your friend (find me here) you get a lot of ideas and inspiration in your head, and allow I've always loved a tulle skirt, pairing it with this pretty cream jumper was thanks to a pin I had seen. I love how pretty and girly it is, yet with a satchel and my converse it really makes the whole look a lot more laid back and it seems perfect for a pub lunch or walk down the canal with my boys. 
I've finally decided that it's time for a brighter pink lip to be seen too, and I'm utterly loving it- especially with this look ♥ I'm surprised at how happy I was with my hair up too, I just really like how fresh and easy this style looks.

I've been a little all over the place with my blog lately, it's mainly to do with the 1000 thoughts running through my head and the realisation of a busy Weekend until Mid-June hitting me all at once. Although I've been getting posts up, I feel they've not been my best or I've not published them as well as I have photographed them.
I am still here though, plodding along and certainly taking lots of photos for Instagram and having the odd chat or two over on twitter as well. 

What I'm Loving Right Now...

Thursday, 14 May 2015

They're the craze of the moment and I certainly know why, this cute little things are too much to handle. These guys came from Japan, from a game to an app and now the soft toy version. Everyone seems to be loving them! Little Winnie the Pooh is no doubt my fav and Donald has been taken to Sev's toy basket a fair few times.

I've no idea what's happened recently, but I've gone a little shoe mad. You can't blame me with this gorgeous duo though ♥
The blue ones are what dreams are made of, I think I actually jumped up and down when I saw them in my size. The cream jeweled ones are going to keep me and my Bridesmaid dress happy in a few weeks time, I think they're the perfect height and are going to go with so much after the Wedding too.

Our Home

I'm truly loving our living room at the moment. It seems so cosy, and I love the splash of blue to bring in the Spring and Summer (when the sun decides to have his hat on every now and again). The house has been filled with fresh blooms, and pretty scented candles- I just it.

Being a Blogger

Something a little different, as I hardly read magazine any more- but I'm excited to say I've done a few blog posts over at Magazine. Elle Decoration has been my fav of all of them, even if we can't decorate in such a lavish way, I still love getting inspiration and basically just love looking at the pictures!Magazine is great for subscribing to your favoruite magazines, they have so much to pick from and it's certainly worth a look- great for any present for yourself or a loved one.

Fresh Flowers

Need I say any more? They just brighten our home and put a smile on my face ♥

This is no doubt the place to go for gorgeous stationary and gifts! Sian, my Best friend recently had her Hen Do, I reached out to Oh Squirrel, after she did such a fab job on my own hen party sash. She whipped up some gorgeous pieces and both I and Sian were thrilled with the result. It's all so pretty and made with love....we're leaving the tacky satin sashes behind.

Photo Wrapping paper c/o

Severus is my favourite thing, probably like ever. So anything that has his face over it, gets a thumbs up from me.
The amount of photos I take of him (usually which end up on his instagram page) it's good to see them going to some use, by being decorated in amazing wrapping paper.

Don't worry, if you're not a Sev fan, because this paper can be personalised to you and your instagram photos, or ones you wish to upload. It starts at £4.99, so not only is it amazing value for money, it's also just amazingly cute and the best gift idea ever! 

I honestly think this is such a sweet idea, and would completely top someones present off. How about a photography friend, showcasing their work, or a new Mummy gushing over their first born. Even better, pet owners like me, that spend all their spare time snapping photos of their woof-dog in bow ties "pretending" they've just purchased some flowers for their Mum....aka me.
