1 Year Together ♥

Friday, 26 August 2016

Today was a happy , loved up day. Gareth and I celebrated one year together.

Our story officially began when we met face to face at a university open day, he helped me find my way around, we got on so very well and chatted for a long time, it literally was love at the first sight.


After many first dates, he met my parents.
He came over to help my parents sort out photos on the computer, it took hours! Anyway... the important part here is that they liked him! They both thought he was lovely and well mannered. We have been on so many adventures already, and they're always so enjoyable just because he is there by my side making me feel not only happy, but safe. 




So today to celebrate our first year as a couple Gareth had a few surprises planned! As we got to his place he told me to close my eyes and he guided my through the door. As I opened my eyes, I was in my extreme love- mode. I ran and hugged him as he had placed 12 helium- filled balloons in total (you cant see them all) around the room, one for each day of the month (1 year) with little felt hearts hanging down with attached flowers and glitter on them. His mother showed him how to sew and make the hearts, and he did the rest, its really sweet.




Much later he had another little surprise up his sleeve 
He made a booking at the same restaurant we went too on our very first dinner date!

Everything was so romantic. 



The food was so nice! I had a yummy salad dish and Gareth had the steak.
And of course there was a present and card exchange! Something else I can treasure in my memory box.




Gareth.. I am so glad I met you.
I can't imagine my life without you. 
Thank you for everything you do for me and for always making me feel beautiful, safe, protected and for giving me a Disney fairy tale-like relationship.



Minnies| We Couldn't Find It!

Heyo

New vlog out today on YouTube, 
We tried to be heroes, we failed but Milo loved it!



Minnies | BathTime Month again!

Saturday, 20 August 2016

Heyo

Welcome back to another Minnie!!
It was that time again that Belle & Bambi have their bath time. There usually is no set time as such as guinea pigs do very well in cleaning themselves. But every few months I like to dedicate some time to give them a bath particularly if they have visited the park or been outside quite a lot.





I use very shallow, lute warm water and place them on a flannel so that they don't slip around.
 I use the 'Johnsons' shampoo, or sometimes the Makuna honey shampoo.
They get towel dried as they don't seem to like the hairdryer but that's understandable, I think if i was that small I wouldn't like it either.


Summer Picnic Time

Monday, 8 August 2016

 Heyo


Saturday was such a lovely treat! Literally! We had a picnic day in the garden soaking in all the sunshine and I loved it! We set out pastel (pink and white) honeycomb decorations, blankets and pillows and made everything look picture perfect- it was so much fun!





We had lots of 'picky' foods as I like to call it on sharing plates and sandwiches of different fillings neatly laid out on a petite, floral cupcake stand. Oh I do love a bit of ham & cucumber. 


My silly little monkeys also joined in on the fun. If they weren't in their outdoor hutch they were playing freely on the grass nibbling away at tomatoes, peppers and cucumber.




I really liked this photo I took of him



 With a range of drinks and other nibbles and cakes, we were sure to finish almost everything! A perfect summers day spent with my favourite person, and my guinea girls, of course.

 Have you been on any summer picnic-parties yet? They're simply my favourite!


One Sweet Once- Upon- A- Time

Sunday, 7 August 2016


Ahh, I absolutely love weddings, it's a picture perfect day full of memories and the beginning of two people becoming one in marriage.

Yesterday I attended a wedding, it was a joyous and special occasion.
The setting was perfection and the warm weather was a great treat alongside with beautiful flowers, smiles, laughter and a few happy tears.



For the big day I did my mum's hair it a pretty half up-do which I felt worked well for thin and short hair. The fascinator complimented her dress and shoes well.
I washed & blow dried with lots a texturing spray, heat protection and volumiser. I then curled her hair loosely underneath and applied some serum, a bit of backcombing, tucking and pinning and this was the finished result.




The day start to end was magical. 

For privacy I can't show the bride and groom, but take my word for it when I say the dress was beautiful. I always look forward to seeing the dress, I get so excited over it. Anyone else?



 Mum's Dress & Fasinater: From Phase Eight, she wore it beautifully.





The food was delicious, the dessert is always my favourite part! There was popcorn, sweeties all around, drinks all day! So much effort had gone into the decoration, it was pastel and white and I loved it.

My favourite thing about weddings is that it feels like something from a fairy-tale book that has come to life. Love is an amazing thing. I hope one day to have a wedding day a magical as theirs.



Whats your favourite thing about a wedding?

YouTube Channel Announcement

Monday, 1 August 2016

Heyo!

Exciting news! I now have a YouTube channel!


Being apart of YouTube is a new hobby for me, a new experience to try something completely different, presenting myself in a video rather than typing away behind a screen.
It is actually really difficult to get used to sitting in front of and talking to a camera and editing has been a new challenge too. Right now I am just experimenting around with different editing styles to see which I prefer. If you would like to view my channel you can see it here.


Enjoy my very first YouTube Video [Birthday Haul 2016]


To see the blog post relating to my Birthday Day Out, you can also view that here :)

(I hope you enjoy!)

Ciao
