DIY autumnal wedding

After falling into an inevitable Pinterest-shaped hole, I had so many ideas for our wedding. We were really running with the autumnal theme, and there were so many beautiful ideas for how we could personalise the day and really make it ours.

All the little things: October

October has been one of the best months so far this year. It’s also been one of the busiest, and pretty stressful at times as we’re getting married in a few days (!!!!) but we’ll get there. Here are a few of my favourite things from this month…

How to be the perfect autumn blogger

I love autumn, I really do. I’m all about cosy nights and chunky knitwear, plus it’s my birthday season and this year is our wedding, so to me, autumn is the most wonderful time of the year.  I also love how autumnal everyone’s posts become, and how Instagram slowly transitions into reds, golds and oranges,…

Interview: Dorkface

I love that this blog gives me the chance to be creative and gives me an outlet to write whatever I want to write. Sadly I can’t spend my all days doing this, but I’m lucky enough to know some incredibly talented people who are able to use their creative talents and unique skills in their day-to-day lives, and so…

Wedding excitement

There are 21 days until November 4th. Exactly three weeks until Sam and I say “I do.” The time is absolutely flying by, and I’m trying hard to not be too Bridezilla-y and not to get too stressed or overwhelmed. I don’t want to give away too much of the detail before the day, but…

Blogger Book Nook #2: Spooktacular

The lovely Abbey and Tabitha started the Blogger Book Nook (a bloggers reading group) last month, and I was really excited to have a little extra motivation for reading. I adore reading but with Dougie, I don’t get as much time any more, however, in the spirit of October and Halloween, this months reading prompt…

29

This year is bookended by two huge events – I had Dougie two weeks before my 28th birthday (my memory of my last birthday involves crying, breastfeeding and not sleeping) and I’m getting married (eeeeek!) in a month – BUT this year has been a busy, tiring and unbelievably happy year, so I thought I’d…

All the little things: September

September was a really special month for us, because it was Dougie’s first birthday. September also means autumn, which is always my favourite season, especially this year! Here are a few of my favourite things from this month…

Behind the scenes

With social media ever-prevalent, the lines between online and offline are becoming increasingly blurred. Five years ago, I wrote my entire MA dissertation on how fashion blogs and new media have changed traditional journalism and the way we absorb and share our lives, and it’s even more so apparent today.

Cervical screening letter? Go.

This is quite a personal topic, and I felt a bit uncomfortable writing about it, and I was nervous to post, but then I realised that there was absolutely nothing to be embarrassed about, and maybe it would help and encourage someone else, so I wanted to share it…

All the little things: August

I know I say this every month, but I can’t believe it’s the end of the month! This time last year I was (im)patiently waiting for Dougie to arrive, and now he’s nearly a year old – how is that possible?!?!? August has felt like a very busy month; I don’t remember the last time…

Our engagement story (& a little wedding update)

I can’t believe how quickly our wedding is coming up. It always seemed like it was ages away, we had so many other weddings to go to before ours, but now there is only one more wedding and then the countdown really is on!
