Thanks for planning such an amazing weekend away for my hen do. I’m so much more excited about the wedding now, I can’t wait for September to get here! I’m so glad we all met – you’re my favourite people to hang out with.
I’m determined to be productive today, so I’m writing a list of all the things I’d like to get done. First up:
I think that’ll do. If I get through all those then I’ll move onto:
My list is much more prioritised towards tidying my online life than my real life, but one thing at a time, right? Let’s do this! *grr face*
You know how sometimes you see things that would be perfect for the people you love? My bridesmaid-to-be Amy (of Wolf Whistle fame) has a completely different sense of style to me and our tastes are often polar opposites but we both agree that most things with a celestial theme are pretty awesome. I put together this little list of things that I found whilst browsing Etsy, just for her.
First up, how beautiful is this big dipper necklace? I wish I could afford it but £62 is a little out of my price range right now. Still, a girl can always dream.
Tiny stars are my favourite.
E E Cummings and a star map? Yes please.
When we move to a bigger house I’m going to buy all the prints that I keep pinning but have no space for right now.
I know Amy loves a collar – this one seemed perfect for her.
& I also know she loves a giant bow! (& red hair – double win)
This tea towel is sold out but I’m hoping it’ll come back into stock. I like the idea of drying my dishes with something prettier than what we have at the moment.
This is the reason I love Etsy so much. I’ve been using it a lot as the wedding gets ever closer (less than 10 weeks to go!), for inspiration and for buying custom or handmade pieces that I know will be unique for us. Of course now my favourites are full of things I want to buy but at least that should make Christmas and birthdays fairly straightforward for the next few years, right?
It’s my 29th birthday on Wednesday (and also my two year anniversary with Q, horrah!). We’re having our engagement photo session with our wedding photographer (Maria Farrelly if you’re interested) in the afternoon and then heading out for a seafood feast at the Loch Fyne restaurants in the evening. (Can we say yum?)
I’ve never been mega crazy for presents, but I do have a Pinterest board called “Gifts for me, please” because it’s easier to point people to that when they ask me what I want.
Some of my choices are more frivolous than others, but if I receive any of these it’ll be a pretty great day:
Snow globe rings (!). I just love these full stop. How amazing would it be to wear a different one every day?
Origami heart necklace. We’ve been making a lot of origami hearts for the wedding recently, so it’d be nice to have this reminder of them :)
EE Cummings Journal. The only poem in the world that I actually like.
Snow globe stamp. (I am a bit obsessed with snow globes right now)
Yellow Swiss Army Knife?! Even if I never used this it would still be amazing.
S is for Sushi (& Sarah) plate. Because I love sushi and I’m sort of starting to love decorative plates.
Fortune Cookie necklace. Just because it’s super cute.
Of course, if I don’t get any of these things it’s just a nice excuse to purchase them for myself, right?
Dear Contact Lenses,
Thanks for being a free trial. I’m hoping that we’ll get along this time around but if we don’t at least I didn’t have to pay for you to find that out.
PS. Welcome to my eyes! Make yourself at home.
