La dolce vita

So much going on at the mo but loving every moment.  I hit the big 3-0 tomorrow, i'm off on hols on Sunday and our wedding invites have arrived so it's all hands on deck to get them out before we shoot off.

Here are a few snaps from our engagement shoot the other weekend down in Brighton.  Our wedding photographer is the wonderful Emma of Emmest Photography...she totally put us at ease and had us jumping in the sea, doing Titanic impressions and generally goofing around.  Love!

See you in a couple of weeks xx

p.s. 'scuse the low res fault, not the photographers, she is ace :-)

Cosas minimas by Bianca Gomez

I've been a big fan of the Spanish illustrator, Blanca G√≥mez, for a while now yet I still haven't got round to actually buying a piece.  Her prints are cute, playful and never fail to make me smile.  I don't think you can ask much more from a bit of wall candy.

You can visit her Esty shop here.

Mmmm, what's been happening of late?  I did end up buying those shoes...think i'll save 'em for the big 3-0 next week.  30, shucks, how did THAT one creep up.  Meh, it is just a number, right?  Met my INCREDible wedding florist on Saturday...she totally got my ideas, running around the shop pulling things out of no-where and creating these whimsical centre pieces. Can't WAIT to see the final arrangements.  Ooo also met our wedding photographer...which is how the balloon came about.  She took some test shots of us down on the beach so I took along the balloon.  Couldn't resist taking a few more shots before it totally deflates. Must include props more often.  So that's life of late.  Still attempting to eat healthily and gym-it.  If I were a school report i'd say 'could do better'.

A few snaps from our mini-break down in Dorset in July, JULY!  This blog is becoming like de ja vu i'm so far behind on posting.  We totally lucked out with the weather, it was scorchio!  And we were lucky enough to have the red arrows fly overhead while we were swimming in the sea, aces!

Life is full of wedding madness but i'm loving it.  We saw our gorgeous rustic barn on Thurs and it was as fab as I remember.  It's weird; i'm an over-sharer by nature.  But one thing I won't be sharing on here are the details of my wedding.  Not until it's over that is...wouldn't want to spoil the surprise now.

Have a fab week y'all x
