Christmas Wish List

Christmas has to be my favourite time of the year like many. I absolutely love the build up, buying gifts for loved ones, getting in the festive spirit & not feeling guilty eating all those Christmas treats.

There's also something about Christmas that makes me want to buy lots of winter themed outfits perfect for celebrating as well as some home ware items I wouldn't usually splash out on. Let's hope I'm lucky enough to get some of these gifts from my Christmas wish list.

Hand & Flowers | Food

Eating out is a great hobby of my husband & I. We love exploring new places, new foods & spending our time eating out but this can sometimes come with a hefty price tag.

We have been waiting to be able to visit Tom Kerridge's 'The Hand & Flowers' for a while now & so I was pleasantly surprised to find that a part of my birthday present this year was for us to take that trip.

We were booked in on a Sunday which only meant one thing. A Sunday roast. Actually, the BEST Sunday roast.

Having scoured the menu as soon as I'd been seated, I decided to have the salt baked swede & haggis tart with crispy lamb & "chantilly de chèvre"

The Big Day | Hair & Makeup

I think deciding on my hair & makeup had to be one of the hardest decisions I made. I wanted to look flawless & natural but also wanted to have a slightly smokey eye. When it came to my hair I had decided on a neat but boho hair look. So you can imagine the trouble I had...

The Wedding Cake | Bridal

When it comes to choosing your wedding cake, you need to make sure that you're more than happy with it. If there's one thing I've realised post wedding is that people always remember the food & the cake whether it's good or bad.

I mean, why wouldn't you want a beautiful looking & delicious tasting cake?! The best bit about the whole event is tasting the cake. Taste taste taste. The more you taste the better.

Honeymoon | Rome

Planning a wedding, buying a house & working full time when your fiancé is living abroad is pretty stressful, let me tell you. When I realised I then needed to also organise & plan the honeymoon I almost when into meltdown.

Luckily, my lovely now husband stepped up & said he'd take on the challenge of organising the honeymoon & would keep it as a surprise.

The day we left for our honeymoon, he had organised a bunch of clues for me to work out on the drive down to the airport. I mean, it did take me a while to work out that flour & eggs make pasta even though it's my favourite food but I eventually got there & worked out that we were heading to Rome!

October Favourites

October favourites time! I feel like by the time I've done the last favourites post it's time to do the next.

Champneys Cloud 9 Body Butter

Oh I do love the scent of this body butter. It feels great on your skin & has a real mousse like look & texture. It's definitely perfect for a pamper night during the winter months.

The Big Day | Bridal

Our wedding day was the best day of my life & won't ever be forgotten. It was so great to be able to share something so special with all of those closest to us & also have everyone together. It's so hard to get family & friends together especially if you have a big family but a wedding means no excuses & I was so happy that everyone could come.

Recently, my taste in perfume has really changed. Gone are the sickly sweet fruity products & in are the more musky & natural scents.

Here are my current top 5 fragrances!
