May Wish List

I just can't stop looking online for clothes, makeup & home ware. I think it's becoming a little unhealthy! I need an intervention.

In the meantime, it means that you get to see lots of wish lists too. Although, that probably isn't helping your addiction either.

DIY | You're Cordially Invited

As soon as I got engaged, I hunted high & low for various invitation styles requesting samples all over the place. It was a lot of fun but I just kept getting disheartened by the price. After a few weeks of being shocked & disappointed with how much people could charge for some paper, we decided that we'd be better off making our own.

Now believe you me, making your own invitations is a lot harder than you think! Especially when you're as creative as me. Which isn't an awful lot! I took to Upcycled Treasures to find some ideas & guidance for a wedding invitation as a "do it yourself'er" & came across an amazing free template. It also perfectly matched our colour theme so clearly, it was meant to be.

Review | Emma Hardie Moringa Cleansing Balm

I discovered Emma Hardie's Moringa Cleansing Balm over a year ago now & I can honestly say, I've never not loved this product & can't imagine changing now! To be honest, I'm not too sure why it's taken me so long to review it. Must have just slipped into my routine & out of my mind.

OOTD | Spring Styling

As Spring sets in, the sun looks like it's going to stay although there's still that slight chill in the air.

I've been loving ripped jeans recently in all their shapes & sizes as well as clean white shirt. Perfect for relaxing on a sunny Saturday.

Festival Wish List

Seeing so many Coachella pictures has made me envious of all things festival. I loved going to Glastonbury & embracing the mud but luckily for me, the sunshine too!

Even though I'm not going to a festival this year, I can't help but look at the clothes & save them in various shopping baskets.

March Favourites

How quick has a year flown by since I started up my dainty blog?! Here we go again with another favourites!

1. Double Denim

I've always been a fan of double denim but only find I can pull it off with my white jeans. Now that the sun has decided to come out, I can double denim all I like!

Nottingham Favourites | Food

I like to consider myself a foodie. I love all things food & it tends to dictate how my day is planned. In the last few years, Nottingham has really upped it's game. There are a lot more independent places on offer & it's still growing but there's still some love left over for a good old chain.

Here are my top 10 favourite places to eat at the minute -
(In no particular order)

1. Five Guys

A recent opening in Nottingham but I imagine, already a favourite for many people! I tasted my first Five Guys back in Washington DC, so was happy to hear that one would be opening in my home town. If you're looking for a tasty but VERY unhealthy burger then head on over! You won't regret it...

Food, Friends & Exploring

Each time I visit good old London, I come back feeling shattered & not having achieved anything or explored anywhere! 

This time when I visited, I was still absolutely shattered but had such an amazing time & felt like I'd got to explore the real London, not just the tourist hot spots. I always put so much pressure on myself when I usually go down because I'm paying an arm & a leg for a hotel as well as a train fare & food.

Fortunately, one of my best friends (well not too fortunate because I'd prefer it if she was still living near me) has moved down to London which meant I could enjoy a stress free, relaxed stay & not feel the pressure of getting around the whole of London in a day or two.

Off I went, coffee in hand to London Town.

Wish List | Home

I'm currently in the process of looking to buy a house & whilst all the mortgage, payments & legal side of it can get pretty boring, the home ware & decoration is keeping me entertained!

I don't really know if I have a certain style as such but definitely keep stumbling across the same kind of thing.
