Instagram photo book c/o Printrbook

When I found Printrbook make wonderful instagram photos into a little pretty book, to look through and admire, I couldn't say no. I love looking through my photos, I have piles of photograph albums, printing snaps is still so very important to me. I also love skipping through instagram accounts, including mine, they bring a smile to my face and a fuzz to my heart ♥

The 50 pages of pretty photos, and our wonderful life is a great reminder of amazing memories in my life. I think they make lovely presents too, for a friends Birthday or even a Hen party. I decided to fill mine with beautiful shoes, yummy cakes, our pretty home, and handsome little boy.

The Love of Hair

Hair extensions c/o Hair Trade

These gorgeous hair extensions seem to be rather popular with my hair routine at the moment. I'm loving long hair, and after not wearing extensions for so long it's nice to change things up every now and again.

My clip in hair is the perfect colour match for my own locks, as well as being super easy to add and style for my desired look. I think they're wonderful for nights out or special occasions ♥

Top c/o Petit Bateau| Trousers from Primark| Hat from ASOS

Oh well hello, fancy seeing you here. It's true, what you're seeing is an actual outfit post, OOTD, style blog. I feel like I've not had time to photograph my gorgeous outfits, let alone wear them. So when Sam and I had a little day out this Bank Holiday, is was nice to be out of my PJ's and show it to you lovely folk, my readers.

I adore this whole look and I feel like it's got such a french feel, with the perfect hat and stripe tee. The printed tshirt collection from Petit Bateau is just gorgeous, I love how fun and happy they are, with the perfect seaside feel.  


I have some wonderful outfits ready to blog, I am also getting very excited about Autumn fashion, and I can see a lookbook on the horizon already ♥

A Vintage Garden Wedding

Thursday, 21 August 2014


In the last three weeks I've had the pleasure of going to three wonderful weddings. All of which were very special to me, a close friend of one, a photographer for the other, and the last the prettiest wedding I 've ever seen. This is the one I'm sharing photos of today, the wedding of Gemma and Daniel, a beautiful couple inside and out and that really shone through with the DIY vintage style wedding they held at the Weekend. 

I think I relate to this wedding the most, due to the fact it's very similar to what I'd like our wedding party to be like. Their were personal details everywhere, props in all the right places, a lace wedding dress, hay bales to perch your bum, bacon sandwiches when the drink had the better of you, a photo booth, and so many fun times dancing along with friends and family ♥

Having the wedding on their farm worked so well for them, favours were bought in for the marquee, hay bales, cake, as well as vintage and DIY touches every where. Meaning it really was a lovely home grown wedding, from their hearts, and they really cared for the guests that were there.

I think these photos say enough, and they really give me a warm fuzzy feeling inside, weddings are so special and wonderful and I feel so lucky I've got to experience so many this year. 
                                                                                                

Our Engagement Party: June 2013

I've only just realised that since stopping my Wedding Blog, I haven't shared our engagement party over on this one. You may have seen this some time ago, but if you haven't then do feast your eyes on our engagement party, that was held in June 2013 ♥

A few weekends ago, Sam and I were joined by lots of lovely friends and family for our engagement party. It was held in park grounds, of a lovely manor house, near where we live. BBQ, wine and cupcakes we enjoyed, and lots of friendly faces and lovely catch ups.


The main reason for the party was to get every one in one place, so we could tell them about our Florida plans for the wedding. It was of course to see, and catch up with with loved ones, eat good food & drink (a bit too much) fizzy wine in the sun. How lucky we were that the sun shone for us.

I was in charge of making everything look as pretty as possible, and I think I did a pretty good job. Umbrella's were at hand, in the sweetest heart vase, that luckily we didn't need. Paper straws and cute vintage style plates and cups were used, and little signs and Mickey Mouse cupcakes finished everything off so nicely.

I'm so happy with my "He put a ring on it" stand, it stood perfectly next to the cupcakes. I hope to use it some where for the party at home, too. As well as this I also ordered a custom cake topper for the wedding, to take over with us, I'm so excited and happy with it (I'm sure I'll share it at some point)

The Secret Garden Tea Rooms

Thursday, 14 August 2014


The New Forest seems to be our favourite spot at the moment, after our family photo shoot, we were keen to visit again after glancing our eyes on the prettiest tea gardens....ever! 
The Secret Garden Tea Rooms is based in Brockenhurst, it's full of amazing vintage furniture, hanging lampshades, cloudy lemonade and afternoon tea a plenty ♥

We had such a lovely day, sipping at cold cider in the warm sun, eating too much cake and finding Sev streams to paddle in. It's a lovely little town, full of cute shops and wild horses roaming the streets.
