Rainy Day’s

Exploring Glastonbury

A couple weekends back we spent a rainy weekend in Glastonbury with my parents, although it was really rainy it was a bloody lovely weekend.

While exploring the town we found a cute ally way and wandered down and took some snaps. I’m wearing my new favourite trainers from Vans, they are a mixture of three different animal prints. Dalmatian spots at the front, with zebra sides and leopard print at the back. I also love wearing them with my spotty dress, the mix of prints is my favourite.

Then it was time for a spot of lunch, after popping into about 4 different cafes non of which were being suitable for Dave. They were all vegan or veggie, we eventually found one that was suitable, it was rather cute and had a Parisian vibe to it. Where I had the cheesiest tuna jacket potato ever!

Then it was off to explore the Cheddar Gorge and then find a good pub to spend the rest of the afternoon playing card games.

Visit To Dreamland

Back in April we spent Easter weekend down in Kent, you can see more from this weekend trip here, here and here. We always try make a trip to Dreamland while down at Dave’s parents. It was great to visit a year on from our wedding there, it truly is one of my favourite places. If you are ever down in Margate make sure you take a visit.

Wearing my summer uniform of midi dress, leather jacket and trainers. This is my fail safe uniform and this dress is perfect for those days when I’m stuck for what to wear I grab this dress, it’s effortless and easy to wear. This weekend we were lucky enough to have a sunshine. It made for wandering around Dreamland the ideal Saturday afternoon activity.

Summer In The City

London Sunshine

There is nothing better than London in the sunshine, on a sunny weekend we headed for our usual coffee date. Getting up early on Sunday and taking our usual stroll through the common and into Balham, past all these beautiful houses. It’s one of my favourite back drops for a couple of snaps. I often dream about one day owning a house like this, for now that dream is a long way away!

Let’s talk about this outfit – I’m wearing my new denim dress. As we all know I love a midi and this denim chambray one is the perfect addition to my wardrobe. It’s the perfect summer dress, not too thick and as it’s plain it is perfect to wear with printed accessories.

My obsession with hair accessories continues and any chance to wear this leopard beauty I jump at the chance. It goes perfectly with this denim dress, expect to see this pairing throughout the summer.

What I’m wearing –
Dress – Oasis
Jacket c/o ASOS
Hair Band – Primark
Handbag – Topshop
Espadrilles & Sunglasses – Zara

Marriage A Year On

It’s been a year since we said I do…

Well a year and a day, as I’m a day late with this post.. But that’s a side note.
Were now into our eleventh year as a couple, and one year into our marriage. One of the most regally asked questions is what does married life feel like, and if I’m totally honest it feels the same as before, just some how more secure. I know that might sound strange but this is the only way I can really describe it. Nothing in our relationship has changed. It’s just nice to know we have made this lifetime commitment to each other. And with that, we’re in our own special club, with only us two as members, its our very own special married club.

I absolutely love looking down and seeing my wedding ring on my finger, every time I see it, I get a warm happy feeling. It’s strange to think that before meeting Dave I never really wanted to get married, I just thought it wasn’t for me. Now its one of the best things I’ve ever done. Gosh, this is getting soppy! I’ll try keep it a mush free as possible as I’m not that kind of gal.

I always knew Dave was the one and after nearly eleven years together and getting married, it’s pretty safe to say he is my true love. I guess over the years our relationship grew and I grew with it, it changed my mind about marriage and how I felt about it. Then one day out of the blue Dave popped the question and I couldn’t of been happier.

A year on, things haven’t changed much, I still have the same surname and we still don’t have a joint bank account. These are things that may change in the future but for now, we are happy knowing we have made this committed to each other in front of all our loved ones. We have a whole lifetime to do the typical married admin bits..

To celebrate our big day, I’m sharing some of my favourite snaps for our wedding and a special illustration I created in celebration.
