Wedding Diaries

The Flowers 

Why are they so important? Me and my fiancé are in the middle of planning our wedding (if you haven't guessed by now), we ordered our flowers a few month ago which I'm glad we did. They had such a variety of colours, glitter, gems and even children's flower wands which I was very excited about. We have decided on a colour and which flowers we are going to have, it was only yesterday we put the deposit down as we completely forgot all about it until I read through our invoice from the flower shop pink Doris. 
I think flowers make the wedding romantic and classic but, You don't just have to have real flowers, you can have paper, foam, gems, comic book paper flowers the list goes on!

Here are a few tips and inspirations if your being nosy or planning your own wedding. 

- look around your local florists 
- call the one that's more appealing to you for a meeting
- make sure you have your colour schemes in mind and some examples for the florist 
- another thing they will do is match your flowers to the style of your dress, I refused this as it wasn't what I wanted. They're experts but it's your day
- take your time in choosing the flowers keeping in mind what's in season 
- the hidden things they don't tell you : you can have gems on your flowers and special spray glitter for flowers
- after the meeting they will send you an invoice of your conversation 
- book it, and pay your deposit asap (you don't want to be disappointed if another bride has taken your date (some florists might not do multiple weddings in one day check with the company) 
- call all things wedding related 3months before the wedding to check over things 
 Post to be continued ..... 

I hope you enjoyed the read 
Lots of love

what's in Poppy's Easter basket | 2018 | toddler Easter treats |

Easter goodies for my Toddler 

Always another holiday isn't there. I like to make Poppy a box for each special occasion throughout the year; Christmas eve box, Halloween trick or treat bag and Easter is no exception. This Easter i have gone for the more traditional items like my mum used to get us when we were little; books, stickers, chocolate egg, etc... I've not gone as over the the top as I usually do. We are also buying the stuff we know Poppy is really interested in, her favourite characters and bits she can interact with us on as well

The items in the box are not to have in one go, half of this is being used for her Easter egg hunt in the garden. We have gone for the play/learning items this year, she loves books at the moment and we read to her every night. As she enjoys it so much i decided to get her The Gruffalo £5.99 from Waterstones and the Peter rabbit sticker activity book £2 from the Works.

A pack of Bunny crayons £1 from Poundland, Peppa pig play cards £2 fro…

How to Declutter your Home and Keep it that Way

Time to declutter

What helps me destress, be productive and keep myself organised is getting rid of all the bits and bobs i keep laying around the house. Yes, that drawer full of crap and all the kids toys that keep mounting up after Christmas and birthdays. I start with 4 bags; charity, selling, friends/family and bin. You don't have to do all of these in one day, pick a room or an area for one afternoon while the baby sleeps and the toddler is settled with snacks and a colouring book and get busy.


Bathroom- the cabinets, products you dont use or are out of date, bath toys, etc...

Kitchen- food packaging, out of date products, pots and pans you don't use or need to replace

Living room- the mounting of paper work hidden in drawers, kids toys, shoes, etc...

Dining room- ( same as above)

Bedroom- clothes you don't wear, brought but never used, old bed, bedroom drawers and tables, worn out shoes (good quality shoes can be repaired fairly cheaply so dont throw away b…
