Styling up a dress for Summer

With the royal wedding in the next month, wedding season is well and truly upon us and it’s time to start thinking about wedding outfits.

We attended 2 weddings last year including our own but this year we have none to go to and I’m secretly pleased as I’m still hanging on to 7lbs of baby weight!

In order to turn my own frown upside down, I’ve decided to style up a gorgeous dress ready for Summer from BooHoo.

It’s a New Year

If you’d have shown me a picture of my life today, this time last year; I would never have believed you.

2017 was a year of incredible things including:

Buying ourselves our dream cars.

Getting married after 9 years together.

Finding out I was pregnant, finding out it was a girl and then in September; giving birth to our daughter Freya Penelope Ella Moore.

Being chosen as an Origins Ambassador for the York store.

Our families always joke that we never do things far apart and always seem to have a lot going on at once. In 2016 we got engaged, went on holiday, bought our first home and both got promotions to name a few.

So when it comes to 2018, we are both hoping it will be a little calmer than the previous couple of years have been. Here are a few of the things we are looking forward to.

I will be continuing as an Origins Ambassador and arranging a few more events with the York store so keep your eyes peeled as there is one coming in February.

Our first family holiday abroad and hopefully a UK break as well.

A family wedding in 4 weeks time.

Freya’s first birthday in September! (she’s only just over 3 months so we have a while to go thankfully)

I don’t know what else this year has in store for us other than my maternity leave ending later in the year and returning to work. I hope there are surprises and lots of laughter as we watch our little one turn into a toddler. When it comes to myself, I intend to shift 5-7 lbs of weight that I still haven’t managed to get rid of since having Freya. I also plan on using some Christmas money to reinvent my style a little as I feel like I’ve outgrown my old wardrobe and without a doubt have outgrown my skinny jeans.

Here’s to a wonderful year full of health and happiness.

The Ultimate Wedding Checklist

As you all know, I got married earlier in the year & when it comes to planning a wedding, it is easy to let stress get on top of you. Sometimes it can be difficult to look forward to the day itself because you are so caught up in all of the minor details. That is why it is important to take a step back and evaluate the situation. Anything is possible; you just need to plan ahead. If you are wondering where to start, you will need to read on. Below is the ultimate wedding checklist.

Decide on a venue

In order to get your invites out on time, you will need to prioritise the selection of your venue. Make sure that you choose a location that you are truly in love with. You should be aiming for a venue that you are happy to remember for the rest of your life. If you are struggling for options, why not look online? This will make the process much simpler, as you will be able to filter your search results. Say you are trying to find wedding venues in Northamptonshire, there are plenty of incredible locations for you to choose from.

Select your refreshments

If you are going to show your guests a good time, it is vital that you have plenty of food and drink to offer them. Make sure that you attend tastings when you are making your decisions. This will save you from being disappointed on the big day. It will also help you to pair together your choices. Don’t be afraid to ask your loved ones for advice. Try to find someone who is especially picky, as this is a great way for you to be certain of honest feedback.
