In case you haven’t heard I got married last week on 23rd October! It was a fantastic day that couldn’t have gone any better, but we couldn’t have done it without the help of our fabulous suppliers. Good suppliers really are the secret to a perfect wedding day, taking all the responsibility out of your hands and doing an amazing job so you don’t have to! If you’re planning a wedding, I can’t recommend any of the suppliers that we used enough – they helped everything to go so smoothly and created our dream autumnal wedding day. Continue reading
I remember a time when I’d have been super disappointed in myself for the amount of reality TV I’ve started to watch. I was always in the “reality TV is trash” camp and rolled my eyes at the idea of watching Big Brother. Continue reading

Sometimes you just need to cut something out to give yourself some room to breathe. I’ve always struggled to do that, all throughout my life. I love being busy, and I love taking on projects, but I’m an absolute nightmare for taking TOO much on. It’s hard for me to draw the line until I get super burnt out and just want to shut myself in the house for a week and not speak to anyone.
