IB and I are in the middle of a very wedding-y weekend. Today, I got to try on the dress. The dress I’ve previously blogged about which I found online and haven’t been able to stop thinking about since. My two lovely friends came to Helensburgh with me and the whole way there I was […]



My blog has been a bit depressing lately. I’m utterly ashamed of my ranty Over-considerate? post (and might delete it).It’s not like me to be so bitter about what other people want, it had just got to me a little. It’s been a tiring month, lots of happenings and I’m exhausted. May makes me sad. […]

Of all things to get hung up on, fonts could be the most ridiculous so far in wedding planning. I’m trying to find a font to use on all of our wedding stationery, including the save the dates that we are hoping to send out in July. I’ve narrowed it down to the following 11 […]

WW debacle


This weight loss malarky isn’t a lot of fun. After my first disastrous week of Weight Watchers, I just couldn’t stay motivated (I’m a motivated by results girl) to diet, although the gym is going well. So, to Slimming World I go. (the wedding isn’t getting any further away while my bum is staying the […]



Life is a bit crazy at the moment, I feel like I’m playing catch up most of the time. I’m settling in well at the new job, but the earlier mornings are taking a bit of getting used to and requiring me to be more organised than normal! I also hadn’t considered that not seeing […]
