This month I'm...
August has been about new beginnings. We're putting all of our favourite pics (I use snapfish to upload them all) into a linen album (7) from Paperchase for £25 and customising the front with a photo using black photo edges. A little bit of indulgence now we're not saving for a wedding: mini doughnuts at Bill's with chocolate dipping sauce (8), Rococo chocolates (3) and the 'Mad Hatters' afternoon tea at The Sanderson with Dune (1 and 6). Seeing friends again after a brief hiatus, organising a curry night at the local BYOB Indian restaurant for my husband's 30th (5) and investing in a few A/W pieces (sounds crazy but you'd better start now!), Penelope Chilvers 'Sugar Skull' Dandy slippers (4) and a cute detachable pom pom beanie hat from Etsy (2), which I cannot take credit for, a reader tipped me off. Committing to my new name, I now have a nametag necklace (9) from Thought Blossoms on Etsy, which I haven't taken off since I opened it - they'd make a gorgeous gift.
And at the end of the week, we're heading to San Diego and LA one of my best friend's weddings, where I will be Bridesmaid. I am so excited for her and (rather selfishly), it will be lovely to go to a wedding where I can relax a bit more, knowing my stress is out of the way. I can't wait to see Natalie and PJ in less than a week!
