What would you love to see...whats on your bucket list??

Sweet Sixth

On Thursday it was out sweet six month anniversary....six months of change, stress, excitement, & hard work. But through it all we held hands, smiled, laughed, pulled silly faces and love each other.....I wont lie had been a hard & tough first six months of marriage.... but we are stronger for it.....and as I got whisked away for dinner, we sat and chatted about what a whirl wind we have been living. We remembered all the perfect moments of our wedding day, about the many beautiful weddings we are going to attend this year, and about our future....only the happy memories matter in this game of life...

...Oh....and we pigged out!!

For Japan with Love

Tomorrow there is a blogger blogging allowed to support and help raise money for Japan.

I shall be taking part. I cannot even start to understand the utter helpless feeling these families are experiencing... my heart is breaking for them. Everyday I see more moving images.... now with the nuclear disaster, the freezing temperature and the snow .... I cant help but feel completely compelled to help in some way, shape or form.

Shelterbox is a Cornwall based organisation which...

 "Provides emergency shelter and lifesaving supplies for families around the world who are affected by disasters at the time when they need it the most."

They are simply wonderful, they send out amazing boxes which include everything you could need in a situation like this....why don't you look inside the box .... then look inside you wallet and

Remember Japan IS our problem....we are all living on the same Earth

We are all family, we are all connected to this beautiful world....Please help them even if its £2....every penny will help them.

Thank you xxx

Darling Darcey....

Oh Darling Darcey you are so pretty! 

Darcey is the most stunning colour...a dusky pink, soft and so feminine. Her flowers have crystal centers, gently sparkling away. Her teardrop shape is accentuated by pearl flourishes, some of which are from a 1940's French beaded brooch made with fuse wire through the war, an added sentimental element to Darcey.

An ivory velvet ribbon and a almond shaped buckle finishes her look.

Darcey would fit into any in-flight be whisked away to your destination wedding. Her colour would suit any ivory/white/cream gown....not to mention the ever so fashionable nude colour tones

Would she be the perfect bouquet for you?

Do you like her glorious vintage jewels? Her sparkling crystals? Her soft ruffles? Her French flowers?

"Just as she is"?

She would be a wonderful addition to any lucky girls outfit....

She is waiting for you HERE

I am Blessed

Sometimes something happens in this glorious, beautiful world of ours which make you remember just how tiny but blessed you are....

Blessed  to be surrounded by loved ones
Blessed  to have someone to hold my hand
Blessed  to have food on my table
Blessed  to have water in my glass
Blessed  to have a roof over my head
Blessed  to have a warm bed
Blessed  to have clothes on my back
Blessed  to have a place called Home
Blessed  to have certainty
Truly Blessed

My heart is breaking for those in Japan, and everyone affected by the nightmare happening across that huge, but humbling ocean.

Please stay safe everyone xxx

An idol in the truest sense of the word.

The pool scene...a delight!!

Rock those outfits girls!
