God I love weddings. Honestly, not only are they a lovely time to celebrate such a happy time in any couples life it’s also a great excuse not just to catch up with friends but also to get dressed up. In my life BC (Before Child!) I could simply go out shopping for wedding guest dresses and not really have to think too hard about the idea. In my life AC (that one’s obvious right!?) shopping for clothes in general is a little more challenging. Continue reading

I know my wedding was aaaages ago now but I thought this was a nice DIY that I could share with everyone. Instead of opting for a traditional guest book I wanted something that wouldn’t get shoved onto a shelf and rarely looked at.
