Diamond Wedding Lockdown Hero

10th June 2020

Throughout lockdown, we all have our own personal and incredible stories of how someone has come to the help of another. I was so touched by one of these stories, an amazing act of kindness to help a couple get their 60th Diamond Wedding Anniversary cards, it is such a lovely tale to tell! During lockdown, I was contacted by a gentleman who had an idea to surprise his wife. Myra & Peter were not going to be able to celebrate their special anniversary of 60 years of marriage with friends and family, but Peter had a surprise plan for his…

Yep Father’s Day! Although we don’t need a specific date to celebrate the most important man in our lives, every dad in the country does get his special day on the calendar. But with lockdown still in place as I write and post this blog we sadly can’t be planning BBQ’s and family get together’s this year. That doesn’t ease the amount of…

What We Need Right Now!

8th April 2020 Bear Hugs

”I just need a hug, not just a quick hug, but a long tight hug!” Covid-19 occupies our every waking moment, it’s on the lips and ears of everyone. Being separated from loved ones, the loss of freedoms we take for granted, and boredom are all causing us to feel a little low. What I miss most during this lockdown experience are the hugs with the people I care so much about, my family and friends. Not knowing when we will be able to give and get those hugs again has been playing on my mind. So I’ve started writing and…

7th February 2020

Before the Big Day It’s so hard now with Instagram and Pinterest! You can spend hours scrolling through your feed only to be bombarded with so many aesthetically pleasing and gorgeous ideas. So first off, the biggest wedding trend for 2020 is individuality. Weddings are evolving and brides are no longer classified as traditional or boho. Our best advice would be, become creative, narrow all your ideas down, keep it simple and tailored, find your look, something that feels fresh and ‘you’, and not just your typical wedding look.  It’s more about the atmosphere and vibe rather than a wedding theme….

Valentine’s Cards and Gift Ideas 2020

5th February 2020

We know that some people think Valentine’s Day is a cliche, but I honestly love it. I love the thought of my dad organising the flowers for my mum a week before, popping out to walk the dog and coming home with a beautiful bunch of red roses (as he does without fail every year) to ‘surprise’ her on Valentine’s. I love leaving a card hidden in my husbands work boots as he leaves for work really early in the morning and I adore the card he leaves on the pillow next to me for when I wake up. I love…
