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

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. *Rooms* Bathroom- the cabinets, products you dont use or are out of date, bath toys, etc... Kitchen- food packaging, out of date products, pots and pans you don't use or need to replace Living room- the mounting of paper work hidden in drawers, kids toys, shoes, etc...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 s

Money saving Hacks | Christmas | 2020 edition |

It's that time of the year...   Remembering all the kids Christmas activities, nursery and school nativity plays, Christmas gift shopping, scheduling friends and family to come over during the holidays, teacher gifts, phonics, cooking the Turkey....   1- Plan Christmas a year to 6 months in advance  I know this sounds nuts but honestly knowing what is happening and who you're visiting makes it a lot easier and less stressful.  2- Buy gifts in the boxing day and January sales. Buy and stock up throughout the year on all the sales. It's amazing how much money you can save by doing this. I manage to save up to £200/£300 by doing this each year.  3- The things you don't think of buying in those sales. Wrapping paper, christmas cards, tape, gift tags, gift bags, Christmas arts and crafts for the kids, stickers, advent calendars (the non-chocolate ones) I brought the Harry Potter charms bracelet advent calendar and frozen 2 advent calendar in Sainsburys

5 creative ways to make extra money

1- sell unwanted items Is it time to do a clear out? Need a little extra money? Sell those trousers you've not worn in 3 months and sell the dress you've only worn twice.  Make sure all items are washed, no marks and no rips etc... these are all things that will help you in the selling process. Take lots of photos of the items, compare on other selling sites to make sure you check out your competitors. Good places to sell are facebook pages, Ebay, depop, Amazon, car boot sale and friends or family  2- creative skills  Are you creative with woodwork, clay, jewellery making, etc... if so put these hobbies into a place online and sell them! Don't forget to charge for materials, hours per day, time to take photos and uploading,etc. 3- teach another language  If you have a second language then good on you, another skill to write down on your cv! Launch a new website of what you can provide, zoom language classes, work sheets, online courses, etc. Make it clear on what you can pr
