The ULTIMATE wedding spreadsheet for planning your big day.

Whether it’s a big day, a small day, an elopement or a really unconventional day - there’s no doubting that ALL weddings require some degree of planning. Ok maybe, maybe a drive thru ceremony conducted by Elvis on a drunken whim doesn’t have any planning involved but ya know, most others do.

We’re getting married in 7 months and by the time we viewed and booked our venue we had under a year to go so the planning has got real very quickly. We’re having a tiny wedding followed by a big party in February of next year and my spreadsheet has been a lifesaver when it comes to organising our weekend of festivities.

12 things that have happened since we last spoke

It’s been a hot minute hasn’t it?

Blogging has yet again taken a back seat in my life - the story of 2019 - but I have wanted to type and get back into the swing of things for ages now so I thought what better way than a little catch up with everything that’s been going on.

It’s been a good month since we last spoke properly, if you ignore my Easter decor blog post which was very much a photo diary whim post to record for my own future reading. So let’s have a catch up shall we?

Happy Easter 2019

I wanted to pop a little impromptu instant blog post up to say happy easter and show you my decorations. It’s a little late to give you inspiration for this year but I like to look back on these posts and see what I did and what my house looked like.

Spring 2019 - A Mood

I don’t know about you but I am SO done with this winter. I am sick of the constant colds and sniffles, sick of the rain (although I appreciate this is Wales) and sick of not being able to wear less than 10 layers.

The sunshine of the past few days has got me dreaming about summer nights and evening jogs around the lake and driving with the windows down, but seen as June July and August are still a way off yet, I thought I’d embrace spring instead.

So here’s a few musings, a mood if you will, all about my love for spring 2019.

9 Mid Week Favourites

How I found the time to redesign my blog, merge my businesses, relaunch my social media accounts and blog for a whole week is beyond me when all of a sudden it’s been two weeks and I haven’t posted a single thing.

With that in mind and a free hour catching up on a Made in Chelsea from November (I am v far behind with my TV viewings) I thought I’d whizz a post out with a few of my Wednesday favs from the last coupla weeks.

The demise of my 2018 bullet journal & where I am taking my 2019 version

Yes that’s right my friends, we are nearly 2 months into 2019 and I finally have new bullet journal content. It’s been a long time coming but it took me a good month to get my journal up and running let alone in a fit state to snap some photos of. And then came the bad weather and the grey days and I encountered the perils of working until it was dark every day.

But now, now we have had some sunshine, I have left work when it is still light and it feels like spring it on it’s way - and with that, a glossy pure white brand new bullet journal. But before we can crack on with that, I guess we better talk about the demise of my 2018 journal first.

Hello from 2019

It’s been a hot minute.

Last time we spoke it was a whole other year (anyone sick of that joke yet?) and I was probably waxing lyrical about how I have no time to blog and how I want to and then it was Christmas and here we are again about a month later.

AD | The Gift of a Break this Christmas

Starting a new job has been exhausting and whilst I’m fully in the swing of employment, everything else in my life has been a whirlwind so when Jet2 got in touch to talk Christmas breaks and hampers, it was a no brainer on my part.

This Christmas, for the last minute buys and the people you want to treat most - why not gift them the gift of a well deserved break.

5 Minutes With My Advertisers - December 2018 (the final countdown!)

Feels a bit bitter sweet writing this for potentially the last time. I have called it a day on advertising bloggers (for now at least) after two years of hard graft and lots and lots of lovely ladies sitting alongside me on my sidebar.

For December then, for the last one it feels fitting that all of my advertisers are repeats, are people who have been with me before and actually, some of the girls who advertised with me on my very very first month all them months ago.

Using Your Bullet Journal For Work

This weekend marks four whole months of being employed and self employed and it’s taken me about that long to remove all the confidential information out of the photos of my bullet journal so you guys can see it.

It took me about three weeks to commit to a work bullet journal and I haven’t looked back. I went for navy because I am a young professional now and it’s probably got enough space to last me until January and then I’ll be into another one already I think.

Of course, everyone’s work is different so the techniques I use in my bullet journal might not work for you but hopefully it’ll give you some inspiration anyway.

Office Renovations And Inspiration

Finally finally, I have actually edited my photos of my office makeover which I finished renovating back in about August. I didn’t take any photos of the room beforehand because it was Jos’ brother’s bedroom but for those of you thinking of swapping your spare room for a home office or studio, I thought a few snaps might give you some ideas.
