Making memories last with Photowall

One of my favourite things to do is get photos printed. While I love having photos on my laptop and phone and scrolling through them, there’s nothing quite like holding the physical images.

An Expert’s Guide to SEO and Blogging

Blogger Book Nook #5: Judge a book by its cover

  Do you ever judge a book by its cover? That was this months Blogger Book Nook prompt.

Two days after our wedding, Sam and I flew to Cancun in Mexico. From there, we headed to Playa del Carmen where we were going to spend the next two weeks, relaxing, exploring and just enjoying each others company – as husband and wife! Dougie was going to spend the first week with Sam’s family,…

All the little things: November

I AM SO SAD THAT NOVEMBER IS OVER. This was the most incredible month. I can’t even put into words how special this month has been for me, but I’ll try! Obviously most of this month revolved around the wedding and honeymoon, so this is going to be quite a soppy monthly round-up I’m sure!…

Our Wedding

Sam & I got married in Richmond on Saturday 4th November. It still feels completely surreal but it was honestly the best day of my life. Having Dougie there with us was amazing, and he was SO well behaved, especially considering how long the day was, and I’m so happy all our friends and family…
