3 months to go until the Big Day

3 months to go until the Big Day

14th August 2019 No Comment
So here we are, well within 3 months of the Big Day. I experienced a bit of a lull with around 3 months and 2 weeks to go and I felt like the Wedding would never arrive. But moving on a couple of weeks and I feel the time hurtling away from us like nobody’s […]

The wedding countdown is on – 4 months to go

22nd June 2019 No Comment
I honestly can’t believe that two months have passed since I wrote my 6 months to go wedding update: the wedding countdown is really on now!! Excuse the double exclamation marks, but it’s coming around at breakneck speed and I’m getting so excited. Sometimes I feel like we’re not getting anywhere with our preparations, but […]

22nd April 2019 No Comment
With just over 6 months to go now until the wedding (where has the time gone?!), I thought it was high time for a destination wedding update! I know, are you as excited as me right now?! So, where are we at? We’re not doing too badly to be honest. I’m not going to lie, […]

The Falkland Arms, Great Tew

We had a lovely end to 2018 when we went for the first of what will hopefully be many weekend walks in the Cotswolds. The Cotswolds is a beautiful region of England and it’s not too far for us to drive there from our home in Northamptonshire. We took a circular walk around the Great […]

What I’ve been up to this month – December 2018

31st December 2018 No Comment
December… always a manic month for most people I imagine! I love Christmas and it’s my birthday just before, but will anyone really blame me if I say I’m (not so) secretly glad it’s nearly over? I think it’s a beautiful time of year with lots of festive events, catching up with old friends and […]
Feeling Festive – My Christmas Timeline

Feeling Festive – My Christmas Timeline

2nd December 2018 1 Comment
I’ve found that as I’ve become more settled in my life in general over the last couple of years (and heading rapidly into my late 20s), I’ve also settled into familiar routines and traditions that get me in the festive mood in the run up to Christmas. I’ve only ever spent one Christmas in my […]

Time for a change – why I’m moving to a job with no travel

7th September 2018 No Comment
So this is it, my big news of the season – I’ve got a new job. And I’ll say this quickly to get it out of the way – it doesn’t involve any overseas travel. At all. If you follow my travels at all, you’ll know that a lot of the trips I’ve done have […]

Hello again everyone! I finally feel like I’m able to pick up some blogging again after what has been a pretty busy couple of months for me offline. There are some big changes coming up for me (and inevitably my blog), so stay tuned for more on that later. In the meantime, I wanted to […]

OK, so it’s actually been 2 months now since we got engaged and I’ve been super busy since then! Now that I finally have some time to sit down and reflect on this huge, incredible life event, I’m getting so excited! The proposal itself was perfect; I’d only just returned from my trip to Saudi […]

7 food stops not to miss on the NC500

We just got back from our amazing holiday doing the North Coast 500 (NC500) route in Scotland. For me, a major highlight of our NC500 trip was the huge range of amazing food options scattered throughout the route. I’d already read about a few of the places and had identified them as good stops for […]
